I can’t resist…

Last Friday, my girl was not coming home for lunch so I told my missus not to cook till later in the afternoon for dinner so we could enjoy everything together. Very often, leftover food, once reheated, will not be as nice as when freshly-cooked, served piping hot from the wok or the oven.

“So what are we going to eat for lunch then?” she asked. I just told her quietly that I would be going out to get something later and I would grab something for our lunch on the way home. However, as I was leaving the house, she said she was still feeling full from breakfast and asked me not to get her anything.

I went to this coffee shop to see what they had for their nasi campur and ended up buying these yam samosas (30 sen each)…

…for our afternoon tea. They were very nice and I am thinking that perhaps I can make my own using the popiah skin that I have in the freezer. I guess we can have our own filling and wrap whatever we want inside.

They were also selling these sago pearls with gula Melaka (RM2.00 each)…

I do love that sago pudding with gula Melaka dessert a lot so of course, I couldn’t resist buying that as well. Unfortunately, I did not think it was all that great – the sago pearls were not well-cooked and there were those white spots in the middle of each of them that were a little hard. Other than that, it was very sweet.

So what did I get for my lunch? I saw these balitongs (siput sudut) masak lemak (cooked with santan/coconut milk) and I sure enjoyed them so much when we were here for their buka puasa buffet around the end of May so of course, I could not resist asking for that…

…and also a helping of the prawns.

I asked for their sambal egg, another thing that I find it hard to resist at these Malay nasi campur places, and their cangkuk manis with pumpkin, masak lemak

Altogether, that added up to RM8.50…

…and knowing how my missus enjoyed the balitongs too, I ignored what she had said earlier and bought her the same, minus the egg.

Well, of course, she ate what I got her and she enjoyed everything to the max. Yes, the food that they dish out here is always good, very much to our liking.
