Last Saturday night, we had our dinner late – after 8.00 p.m. after the sunset service at the church that we frequent here.
We headed to this restaurant again, the favourite of many, as my girl wanted one of their specialties, the sizzling beef on a hot plate…
…again. She does enjoy it a lot and would want to come back for it anytime.
For our vegetable dish, I ordered this plate of baby kailan (Chinese broccoli) with cheese…
…but if I am not wrong, they call it butter baby kailan or something like that, that much I could make out of what the waitress was saying in Mandarin.
I also asked for their steamed lajong…
…as we had not had that for a long time – not since January, 2017, to be exact, and yes, it was very good. I prefer this fish to the other better-known varieties such as tapah and patin as it does not have a very strong fishy smell and that night was no exception – we certainly enjoyed it very much.
When I went to pay our bill, I was taken by surprise as it came up to RM58.00 only, inclusive of rice and drinks. I had expected that lajong to be quite expensive – having fish and prawns and other kinds of seafood here in our little town can burn a hole in your pocket! When I asked the lady boss, she said it was only RM21.00. I certainly would not mind ordering it again.
There was quite a crowd when we got there but most had had their fill and eventually, most of them started leaving. By the time we were done, there was just one table left…and that was past 9.00 p.m. already.
