Go out…

We went out for dinner last Sunday evening which was a welcome change from eating at home most of the time and we asked my sister to join us as well.

If I am not wrong, the last time we were here was in February when my niece, the one working in Singapore was home for Chinese New Year and I did drop by too with my West Malaysian blogger-friends when they were in town and as a matter of fact, my girl said we had not been here for quite a while so she would not mind if we went there that day. I suggested going there early, past 5.00 p.m. so if there were others, there would not be so many people around.

Talking about my niece in Singapore, actually, the following day would be her birthday and normally, she would be home every year to celebrate the day with her parents and the rest of us but this year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, she was not able to come home, not for her birthday nor anybody else’s, for that matter.

We had the Thai-style chicken…

…which was very nice but the salted egg pork…

…was a little bit too salty. Probably the eggs used were thus inclined and actually, we do feel we are getting quite bored with salted egg anything. Personally, I think it has served its time.

The hot plate tofu

…turned out different from the usual that we are more familiar with, the one with the dark (soy) sauce but it was all right.

The fried cangkok manis with egg…

…was good, as always and we enjoyed the hot and sour Szechuan soup…

I forgot to tell them to cook for 2 or 3 – usually, there would be enough to go round – so the servings were huge, probably for 4, as a result of which we were so very full by the time we managed to finish everything. All in all, the total for the food was RM71.00 which, I thought, wasn’t all that cheap since we had neither fish nor prawn but it was all right – after all, we do not go out all that often anymore these days.

RUBY RESTAURANT  is located at No. 71, Jalan Kampung Nyabor right next to HOME COOK CORNER  (2.292756, 111.825335) with the AmBank Tunku Osman branch in the very next block.

  1. Price is very good for kl standard for 2 meat, 2 vege and 1 soup dish. I would be so very full if I ate all these dishes for dinner but I would say a very satisfying meal despite the meat being too salty due to salted egg yolks.

    Yes, servings were huge – for four persons. We usually order for fewer people, 3 would be just nice for 4 persons, I think. More than enough to go round.

  2. Too sad that salted egg pork was salty, if it was not then I guess it would taste amazing. I will try to make my own version of that, its looks good

    We’ve grown sick and tired of it as there was that trend of salted egg in anything and everything. The novelty has worn off. Here, you can buy instant salted egg paste to cook your own dishes and recently, I saw salted egg spread…to go with bread. No, thank you!

  3. These are actually the kind of dishes I would love to have, very homey type of food. RM71 for all the above dishes is pretty cheap though no fish and prawn included and take into consideration that servings are huge too, so worth it.

    Cheap? Hmmmmm!!!! 4 persons, I would consider around RM60, no fish and prawns, very reasonable.

  4. I have yet to have salted egg pork. Guess salted egg is all the craze now.

    Ooh cangkuk manis. This is even more elusive over here. 🙂

    You have imported sayur manis from Sabah, the miniature version. They always have it in pan mee. Dunno why nobody plants it there – so easy, just poke the stalks in the ground!

  5. Maybe weekend prices are a bit higher than normal days. Anyway for 5 dishes, I guess it is quite justified…

    The servings were big but still, I would only say it was all right if there had been fish and prawns.

  6. It does seem like salted egg is perhaps a bit overused these days, isn’t it?

    Yes, worn out already, no longer the novelty it once was. They will have to come out with something else now.

  7. I think I never tasted salted egg pork. Not that crazy about salted egg in everything.

    They have chicken too, salted egg chicken, salted egg pumpkin or sweet potatoes, salted egg everything. I think they just buy the instant paste and use to cook. I’ve seen it in the shops. Not the same as initially when they cooked from scratch. The fried bitter gourd with salted egg here – not so nice anymore – cannot see the salted egg yolks, very obvious why it is so.

  8. I just had salted egg rib king dish that day, my mom likes it.

    Though no fish or prawn, the price is still considered cheap by sg standard, lol.

    Is it? Hmmmmm!!! I could feel the pinch!
