Morning till [the] nightfall…

This place…

My Bistro

…has been around for a very long time but I never bothered to drop by and give it a try. It appeared to me to be a place serving some pseudo-western dishes and a watering hole later in the night.

Sometime ago, this stall…

My Bistro, inside

…made its appearance there and I did get to eat their egg tarts and Portuguese egg tarts – I think they call them Macau tarts…

…and yes, they were good.

I also bought the chicken curry puffs…

…for some friends once and I did not hear them complain. Other than those, they also had the sio pao (baked char siew buns) and a couple of others like these…

…for instance though I am not sure which one that is in the list…

They even had that celebrated Taiwanese egg cake…

…that stirred up a storm when it made its first appearance in the country and had a whole lot of people queuing up for it.

I tried their steamed char siew pao (RM2.00)…

…before and it was very nice so I stopped by that day to buy a few home to re-steam in the morning for breakfast. I think the ones here that were selling for only RM1.50 initially had gone up in price to way over RM2.00 by now and I did not like the egg tarts there.

I ordered one of their steamed meat paos (RM3.20)…

…that day and frankly, at that price, I expected it to be much bigger. The filling was so-so – it sure did not get me jumping up and down with delight and at that price, I think I would much sooner stick to the much nicer char siew ones.

I asked the people there and they told me that the stall would open 7-ish in the morning and would stay open till past nightfall at around 8 at which time, people would go there for drinks and there is a kampua mee stall inside – if I am not wrong, they said that it opens at night so those there for the booze could have that as well should they feel like having a bite to eat. I did not ask if they still serve those pseudo-western dishes anymore or not.

It’s a nice small place, not crowded and I do think it is ideal for meeting friends to sit and chat. The kopi-o-peng (iced black coffee) that I had was good and I love the blackboard chalk-drawn mural…

…on the wall but do be forewarned that I did stop there one afternoon to buy the tarts and they were not available. Perhaps they were all sold out that day.

MY BISTRO CAFE & BAR (2.311574, 111.846440) is located right beside Delta Mall among the shops at Pusat Pedada, the first shop at the corner in the block to the right of the mall if you are facing its back entrance.

Ancient relic but very young at heart. Enjoys food and cooking...and travelling and being with friends.

  1. I ever bought a bao in which they call it 叶子楣 bao @ S$4 and it’s big…

    I can’t remember how much I paid for the very nice and very big ones at Bukit Bintang in KL in the mid-80’s. Those were so good – have not had any since that comes close. Well, they upgraded the place, tried to make it classy so the coffee shop closed down or moved away…and now that place is like a giant foot reflexology massage centre, no longer very respectable, not at all. Classy, my foot!

  2. I generally eat very healthily but Portuguese egg tarts are a weakness. 😉

    Are they unhealthy? I do enjoy egg tarts, the really good ones but I do not buy them all that often…for no particular reason.

  3. I prefer char siew pao to meat pao.

    If the meat pao is really good, I think I would prefer that. Char siew is a bit on the sweet side.

  4. I love paus with egg in them. The tarts looked yummy.

    Me too but the taste counts as well. To me, this one is not quite there.

  5. ooo yeah, with a name like my bistro, i guess none of us would expect them to be serving bao and egg tarts inside … but still a pleasant surprise 😀

    Exactly! But the stall was not there before…for many years. Maybe they decided to rent out the space to make ends meet. Times are hard.
