Why don’t we go there…

Last Friday, over the long Deepavali weekend, we were out and about doing this and that. Despite the fact that it is not a public holiday here, the schools were given that day and also the following Monday off. It was already around 1.00 p.m. when we were through and started thinking of going some place for lunch.

My girl suggested going for the fish fillet…

here. We had not had that for a very long time as being bread crumb-coated, we could not order that during those days when my girl was staying off anything that was not gluten-free. Yes, that was very nice and my girl sure enjoyed it. I only had a slice and the mum probably had one too and she had all the rest!

We wanted tofu but we did not want it deep-fried served with mayo, just like the fish fillet, and we did not want their sizzling plate version as the bean curd would usually be buried under a lot of minced meat and it was our no-meat Friday.

In the discussion, I thought the boss said something about mixed vegetables and they could leave out the meat and I was expecting a dish of tofu served with that. However, what came out of the kitchen in the end was just a plate of mixed vegetables…

…no tofu. Thankfully, it was very nice and a welcome change from the usual vegetable dishes that we would order at such places.

My girl wanted one of our usual, the butter scotch prawn balls…

…and needless to say, it was very nice, as always.

We also ordered their cangkok manis or mani chai fried with egg but it never came. When we asked the boss, he said he did not hear me asking for that so it was not in our list of orders. We were almost done by then and was already quite full so we just cancelled the order.

The total for the food came up to only RM41.00 – I must say that this is one of the places in town where the food is nice and very reasonably priced and it sure comes as no surprise at all that there are always quite a lot of people everytime we drop by.
