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)…

Sago gula Melaka

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.

  1. you know your missus so well to buy her balitongs chapfan. she must be so happy to see the food as I guess she was starting to feel hungry.

    I also asked for less rice.

  2. Your picks are all my favourite choice especially the balitongs. I will surely enjoy everything to the max too.

    You like balitongs? Not usually found around here, definitely not at the Chinese chap fan places. I only know one chu char place where one can order this.

  3. It’s a good thing that you got your missus a packet or else she would have missed out or you would have to share yours hee..hee…

    LOL!!! I reckoned that if she did not want to eat it for lunch, she could always have it later…for dinner.

  4. Love your packed nasi campur. Balitong some more. Drooling looking at it.

    For 2 weekends in a row, we had nasi campur from nearby mamak. Fattening and sinful so we try not to have it as often as we want to.

    Food here is always good. Problem is no resistance, want to take everything…and when time to pay, want to pengsan. This was ok, RM8.50 only…not over RM10 yet. LOL!!!

  5. what a colourful packed lunch – such interesting ingredients too, especially since we don’t see cangkuk manis in kl 🙂 i also have never seen yam samosas before, which i’d love too 😀

    1st time trying the yam samosas…and I thought they were really nice, especially with the thin crispy skin…but I wonder about the 30 sen each, kind of steep the price for the small thing.

  6. I’d be very happy if my husband surprised me with this too. Such a sweetheart you are to bring home something (esp something she loves) eventhough your missus told you not to.

    I’m sure he does – I can remember the times when he did that like when he got you your favourite dates – your William is such a darling! LOL!!!
