What you got…

I was here again the other morning and I bought their fried mee and fried kway teow and also their very nice cucur that my girl enjoys so much and not forgetting their bingka labu.

I spotted these bergedil (3 for RM1.00)…

My girl loves them a lot too so of course I had to buy some for her. They’re not difficult to make but at that kind of price, I think it is a lot easier to just go and buy, provided they are available. The ones here are pretty good.

I walked around to see what else they got – perhaps there was something new that I would love to try…and then, I spotted these mini pies (3 for RM1.00)…

Mini pies

The guy told me that there were potatoes and meat in the filling but of course, at that kind of price, I did not get my hopes up too high. I thought it tasted quite nice, the filling was all right but I did not like the crumbly egg tart pastry all that much as it was slightly sweet and I was expecting it to taste completely savoury. I would prefer shortcrust or puff pastry, I think.

I did buy quite a lot that morning for breakfast, lunch, 4 o’ clock tea and dinner and the total came up to RM21.00. I gave the guy a 50-ringgit note and a 1-ringgit note and he gave me two 10-ringgit notes and a 20-ringgit note. I noticed his mistake (normally, I would just grab whatever change and put everything in my pocket without looking, much less counting) and returned that latter to him and he gave me another 10-ringgit note. As they say, honesty is the best policy and after all, it was just 10 ringgit…and as the words of the song goes, “God is watching us…from a distance!

The stall/shop that used to be called MAK MET’s BREAKFAST STATION is located at the shops along Bandong Walk (2.313869, 111.825808) where PENYET BANDONG is in the evening.

  1. Pies with egg tart pastry is just not right for me, I too prefer puff pastry

    It tasted all right after a while, can’t really complain when it is only around 30 cents, SGD, for 3. I like shortcrust the most but it must be buttery rich, very fragrant and not hard.

  2. Both looks good and nice to have for breakfast/teabreak with a cup of hot coffee.

    Yes, they do have some nice kuihs here and they’re inexpensive.

    1. I know online people would put recipes for shortcrust pastry vs puff pastry. is there a unique special recipe for crumbly egg tart pastry? crumbly egg tart pastry seems like a subset or variation of shortcrust pastry maybe some would put marjerin or shortenings instead of butter. puff pastry of course is a totally different kettle of fish. anyway what do I know as I don’t bake, I only know how to eat and read recipes online. lolx! ><

      I don’t know how to make egg tart pastry or let’s just say I have never tried. I do know that some add vanilla essence too and that will affect the taste as well. I do not make puff pastry either – I just buy the frozen ones

      but I would say I am pretty good at making shortcrust pastry. Have not made for a while now – maybe I should try and come out with something ones of these days. There’s choux pastry too – the one for cream puffs. I don’t make that either.

  3. RM10 may not be a big deal to some people but for vendors like him it can buy a few packet of flours for his business . It’s good that you return that to him

    Yes, always pays to be honest, others have given me back the money when i paid too much as well – what goes around comes around.
