Not likely…

I mentioned in my previous post that I am currently looking for new places to go for lunch or dinner to replace the one that called it quits on June the 1st that day.

Well, the food at this place is very cheap and nice but it is not likely that we would be dropping by here all that often as parking can be such a pain. I have no intention of parking my car a mile away and walking all the way here nor am I all that keen on parking at the multi-storey car park right across the road and climbing up and down the stairs.

The other day, however, by some stroke of good luck, as we were driving past, I spotted a vacant parking space right in front of the outlet of that Colonel Sanders’ franchise in the middle of the block so of course, I grabbed it right away and in no time at all, we were at the coffee shop placing our orders for our food.

It was 11 something, almost lunch time and although there was quite a crowd, surprisingly, there was no problem getting a table. Probably many have gone back to the longhouses for the Gawai or some place out of town on a holiday. We were informed that they had run out of midin (wild jungle fern) and cangkok manis so we asked for their kangkong (water spinach) fried with belacan (dried prawn paste)…

…instead. It was very nice just that I found the sauce a little bit too salty but it went great with the rice.

By the way, much to our surprise, we were given a plate of chicken rice each and the best part was it was pretty nice, very much nicer than what we can get at some chicken rice shops and stalls here.

We loved the sio bak/siewyoke (roast pork)…

…that we ordered and the ang sio tauhu (braised tofu)…

…was good too.

I forgot to snap a photograph of the salted vegetable tofu soup before we each took a share of it…

…but that was nice as well, as good as what we would usually order here.

The best part was when I asked for the bill. The total came up to only RM40.50 for the four dishes (inclusive of the chicken rice) for the three of us. It was so cheap and so nice that I sure would not have any second thought about coming here to eat again…provided I can find a parking space not too far away, of course!
