Right time of the night…

Yes, we had a very late dinner again last Saturday, past 8.00 p.m. after the novena and the sunset service in church and it did look like it was the right time of the night to drop by here to eat.

If you come around 6 or 7, the usual dinner time around here, it may be so very crowded and you may not be able to get a table unless you book ahead. That night, when we got there, many people had left or were leaving so there wasn’t a problem at all.

My girl ordered her favourite sizzling beef on a hot plate (RM15.00)…

– I am quite sure there is a bit of tomato sauce in that but lately, the mum has been saying that there is no wheat in that except for a certain popular (and more expensive) brand. Anyway, since it is not a tomato-based gravy, I guess they would not use that much and just a bit once in a long while should be all right.

The ang sio own-made tofu (RM9.00)…

…used to be clear but it was served like this that night, quite obviously with tomato sauce so I asked my girl to just eat the tofu and not to take too much of the sauce, just in case.

The ladies loved the fish maw soup (RM10.00)…

Fish maw soup

…which I thought was just fish maw in egg drop soup with a bit of minced meat and whatever else. I still prefer my favourite here, their clear fish maw soup.

The fried midin (wild jungle fern) with belacan/dried prawn paste (RM9.00)…

…was very nice and the total for the food was just over RM40 (excluding the rice and drinks). That sure beats eating at those not-all-that-fancy-and-upscale restaurants and burning a hole in one’s pocket and it definitely does not mean that one would enjoy it a whole lot more at those places, not necessarily.

  1. Here a stall in Chinatown is selling ang sio tofu with roast meat, cabbages and other vegetables, nice!

    The one here had strips of meat and everything else but it was clear, no tomato sauce. We like their own-made tofu – so white and smooth and silky, the texture is like the soft tofu sold in packs at the supermarts but those are absolutely tasteless – this one has the nice soya bean/tofu taste.

  2. These are the type of food I like and enjoy. Price is reasonable too. My favourite is the fried midin with belacan. Yummss!!!…😋😋😋

    Same as my father, he was more into Chinese – not into all the other different kinds of cuisines – my mum used to cook those Melanau delights that she loved in small servings for herself to enjoy.

  3. I like all the choice of dishes above and their prices are very reasonable too!

    Dinner for 3 for a lot less than £10 – you’ll never get it at this price where you are now.

  4. I would enjoy this kind of dinner. Fish maw soup, midin. The sizzling beef. Must be good.

    It was nice…and inexpensive.

  5. Average is just about RM 10 per dish so it is a very good price seeing that there is a beef dish.

    Yes, beef isn’t cheap…and that was RM15.00! It was very nice though, well worth it!

  6. You reminded me I haven’t had a sizzling plate for a very long time. That fish maw soup looks good.

    They say don’t eat anything on hot plates as they may not wash it clean, things stuck in the narrow crevices, prone to rust…but it is ok if they line it with egg or a leaf of Chinese cabbage. I prefer the clear soup version of fish maw at another place we frequent but the ladies love this one.

  7. After 8 is late for me too. I’m starving by 6p m 😉

    Gee!!! You’re more Foochow than me! Traditional Foochows had their dinner by 5 or 6…and they would have supper at 9 before calling it a day.

  8. Seems like a lovely dinner… i love all the dishes but I am avoiding the hot plate cause my dad (who’s a cook) said that the kitchen staff usually don’t clean the hot plate properly cause it’s hard to scrub off the stains. Jeng jeng jeng

    Yes, I heard that too sometime ago. I think I did mention that in my reply to an earlier comment.
