Take my advice…

I did mention in an earlier post that I kept telling my missus to just go out and buy a few dishes from the chap fan stalls for our meals instead of sweating it out in the kitchen but she always turned a deaf ear.

Well, during the week-long school holidays recently, my girl went and stayed with my sister, her godmother, while she was nursing her fractured wrist after the surgery she had to go through. At the same time, we also cooked or bought food from here, there and everywhere to take to the house and enjoy eating our meals together.

On one of those days, I stopped by this food court to let my missus go and pick the dishes that she liked from the chap fan options and seeing how easy it was to do that, compared to cooking one’s own, and how much cheaper it was, it came as no surprise at all that finally, she would just follow her old hubby’s advice, just that I did not expect it to be this soon.

The other day, on Tuesday, two days after school reopened, she took the tiffin carrier and said that she wanted to go and tapao some food for our meals that day as she had run out of meat in the freezer. Of course, I had no objection as I was the one who suggested it in the first place.

It turned out that she only bought two dishes – she insisted that our girl said she loved this one that she thought was the butter chicken we had that day

I remember that was nice but I thought the colour was a bit off and they did not do a good job with the egg floss. I opened the tiffin carrier when we got home and saw that this time around, it was their cereal fish fillet and not only did it look nicer, it tasted great too!

My missus asked for RM10.00 of it and was given the whole tiffin carrier full so she divided it up into smaller containers for us to eat slowly bit by bit in the days to come.

She also bought some ladies’ fingers fried with ikan bilis (dried anchovies), RM5.00 of that…

The girl was not as generous with the vegetable so we did not bother saving a part of it for another day. I must say that I liked how green it looked – more often than not, the vegetables that we get served at the restaurants would turn dull and grey after cooking, not at all a sight to behold.

I asked my missus if they had the very nice pork ribs that I enjoyed a lot, the one with the hint of some Chinese cooking wine and yes, they did! Seeing how I liked it, she insisted on going back to the stall to buy it…

…and once again, for RM10.00, the girl there filled the whole tiffin carrier and there was more than enough for us not only to eat that day but also to divide and keep for our meals in the days to come. It was chicken though which was nice too but personally, I would prefer the pork ribs we had the other day.

I suppose we shall be dropping by here again and again till we get sick and tired of the food there but perhaps I should stop blogging about what we buy from here too as I am pretty sure everyone is getting rather tired of reading all about it again and again.

GRAND WONDERFUL FOOD COURT (2.309601, 111.845163)…

To tide us over…

My appetite has not been very good ever since I have not been feeling too well especially when I cannot eat this and cannot eat that. Besides, if I have had something substantial for brunch or lunch, I would feel so full the rest of the day and would not be able to eat much come dinnertime.

That was why last Sunday, since we were planning to go out for dinner to celebrate my girl’s birthday, I was saving my tummy space and only had two half-boiled/cooked eggs in the morning, that was all.

The ladies in the house, on the other hand, were quite happy to buy some stuff for lunch from Colonel Sanders…

…at the mall not far from our house.

I drove my missus over and waited patiently in the car while she went to buy. She sure took a mighty long time because according to her, they had a new girl manning the counter and she seemed to be at a loss as to what she was supposed to do.

I think my missus bought two sets of whatever they had on promotion and this was one of them…

She got these two pieces of fried chicken, barbecue flavour…

lav

…in one box and another piece, the drumstick, in another box with the two tubs of mashed potatoes…

Looking at the ad, there should be one with the potatoes and there should be coleslaw in the other, instead of two of the same…

…and because there were two per set, there were four altogether!!!

My girl wanted six of their crispy cheesy fingers but my missus was told that they were out of stock. I browsed through their Facebook page and I saw a whole lot of comments from disgruntled customers – obviously, they are always running out of this and that these days. Probably that was why there wasn’t any coleslaw.

Much to our surprise, despite what the girl said, there were two crispy cheesy fingers…

…in one of the sets. Don’t ask me where those came from and why they were available – I really have no idea whatsoever what was going on.

There was also a zinger burger…

…and two complimentary drinks for the two ladies to enjoy and to tide them over till dinnertime.

There was supposed to be something from Lays as well, a pack of chips, but obviously, that was out of stock and unavailable too and no, there was no special discount or something else given as a replacement! I saw in one of their ads a clause that said, “Sementara masih ada stock!” (While stocks last!) Luckily I was not the one who went to buy – I most certainly would have made a scene on the spot! I imagine them telling every customer that they have run out of stock and at the end of the day, they will take all the packets home to enjoy while watching their favourite movie on Netflix!

Needless to say, the two sets did not come cheap. According to my missus, she had to pay around RM39.00 altogether, around RM20 per head!

This KENTUCKY FRIED CHICKEN outlet is located on the upper ground floor of the Delta Mall (2.311909, 111.846792), at Lot 2831, Jalan Dr Wong Soon Kai (Pusat Pedada).

Someplace new…

This restaurant isn’t exactly new. In fact, they opened this branch in 2018 but we never dropped by to give it a try. I did have a look inside once and I told my friend, the manager of the adjoining hotel in that same building, that they only had those big 10-seater Chinese banquet tables and there would only be the three of us. “Go ahead!” she said. “They have people to clean and wash everything once you’re done!” So far, we never did even though it is located pretty near where I live. As they say, so near, yet so far!

That evening, however, Sunday, we decided that we would go there for dinner to celebrate my girl’s birthday – the three of us with my sister and my brother-in-law and his wife, six of us altogether so I went two days earlier to book a table and order the dishes from their very elaborate menu.

Of course, we had to start with the longevity noodles, the mee sua, fried…

…served with the “golden eggs” by the side and much to everyone’s delight, it was very nice, nicer than any that we had had elsewhere before. My sister-in-law kept praising it for it was not oily at all, a nice change from the usual that we had been served.

When they served the next dish…

…I was bewildered for a while as I was pretty sure that I did not order any pickled jellyfish but my sister said that was their Thai-style chicken. She was here not too long ago with some of her friends and they had this dish which they all enjoyed to the max. She kept telling me to order that, adding that she was sure my girl would love it…and so she did and everybody else.

My sister also had a very nice pork rib dish but she could not remember what it was like. I asked the lady in charge at the counter at the restaurant and she suggested two, both their signature dishes. There was a rack of ribs in one dish but I felt that was a bit too much for us to finish so I settled for the other alternative…

…instead, also a very popular signature dish of theirs, served with their very nice pickled jellyfish by the side.

The lady said that they would cut the rack of ribs into individual pieces and there would be six pieces altogether, just right for the six of us. From the way she was gesturing using her fingers, I expected the ribs to be finger-sized but it turned out to be much bigger…

– at least, double the size of what I had imagined.

It did not really matter really as it was so very nice and unlike the rack, this was their pai kut ong (spare ribs in Hokkien) so there were no bones and hardly any fat, mostly lean…

I also ordered their steamed cod fish…

I saw a photograph of the dish in their Facebook page where they had a thin slice of the fish (like the one we had not too long ago), steamed on one half of the plate and another slice, deep-fried, on the other side. The lady said that that would be for 10 people so I told her that just one slice would be enough for the six of us and I asked for it to be steamed.

I was stunned when the fish was served as we got a slab so big that there would probably be enough for six slices, no less! Gee, I thought to myself, this dish alone would cost a bomb as we paid around RM70.00 for that thin slice that we had the other day. I guess it did not matter one bit as it was to celebrate my girl’s birthday and birthdays come but once a year. We did manage to finish around half of it and asked for the rest of it to be packed for us to take home.

My girl loved this broccoli with four types of fresh mushrooms…

…a lot! She always enjoys mushrooms and would buy them ever so often when she was studying in Wellington, New Zealand – they have all kinds of varieties there and can be quite affordable during their weekend promotions.

She also enjoyed the sea cucumber soup…

…a lot more than what we had had elsewhere because of the addition of crab meat in it. She said that it made the soup taste like sharks’ fins soup that she loved so much (and would have at least two helpings everytime) before it became taboo to add it to any menu at a restaurant.

The total for all the aforementioned dishes came up to RM220.00 altogether and seeing how everyone was in agreement that the food served here was top-notch and they would love to come again, it sure was worth it unlike that year in 2020 when we celebrated my girl’s birthday at the sparkling new restaurant. The food was disappointing and on the whole, it was a lot more expensive – of course, we never stepped in that place ever again after that!

The GRAND WONDERFUL RESTAURANT is right beside the GRAND WONDERFUL FOOD COURT (2.309601, 111.845163)…

Everybody loves me…

Last Friday was Malaysia Day, a public holiday and my sister asked me if I could drive her around to do a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Of course, I could – nothing much else that a retiree has to do, right? She is still nursing her post-surgery fractured wrist so she is not about to drive anywhere herself just yet.

I noticed that a lot of the shops in town, including the coffee shops, were closed but no, I did not think those people were that patriotic as to take the day off. I suspect they were not willing to pay their workers extra for working on a public holiday (the regulation here) so most of those shops that were open would be the family-owned ones where members of the family would chip in to do everything in running the business.

It was already 10 something when we were done and I suggested going for brunch so my sister would not need to go home and heat up something for her lunch. She is trying to cope the best she can but with one hand immobilised, there are limits as to what one can do. When we got to the restaurant, she suggested sitting outside because it looked like there were quite a number of customers inside the air-conditioned section. That was why we ended up dining al fresco that morning.

It was a Friday, my no-meat day, so I decided to go for the Foochow char chu mee (fry & cook noodles, soup) with fresh fish fillet (RM18.00)…

I had their tomato kway teow with fresh fish fillet (tapah) once and it was very good.

My missus loves this char chu mee and will order it sometimes and my sister said that she and my brother in Auckland, New Zealand enjoy it too, this exclusive upgraded version with fresh fish fillet. She said that they would drop by here to eat quite often everytime he is home. On the other hand, I am not all that fond of anything this soupy – I have this feeling that the taste would be kind of diluted with the addition of so much water to the noodles.

Besides, our local yellow noodles…

…are alkaline-free so there is no offensive smell but the noodles may not stay firm that long especially when it is swimming in the soup. They may soak it all up and become over-soft and soggy especially if one does not eat them all up quickly like when one buys them home.

Much to my delight that morning, my first sip of the soup swept me off my feet – with the fish added, the taste was absolutely awesome. It was so so so good!!! They did not have any tapah so they substituted it with some other type of fish. The lady boss did tell me the name but I can’t remember it now.

My sister had their kampua mee (RM4.50)…

…which I feel is among the best in town! I had it a couple of times before and I sure would not mind ordering it sometimes but there are so many nice things here to pick and choose so it has to wait for quite sometime before I get round to it again.

I paid for our orders the moment mine was served but the daughter-in-law (who would help with the serving and everything in the restaurant) brought my money back to return to me. It seemed that our family/church friends, Lawrence and Annie (I taught all their sons at my English Language tuition class, wonderful boys all of them!) were eating inside and they had picked up the tab. Good grief!!! And I was having something SO expensive!!! Blush! Blush! Thank you so so much to the two of you, Lawrence and Annie -that was so very generous and thoughtful of you.

We know better…

We went to tapao the food from here on our no-meat Friday last week because we were not too sure if there would be any nice meat-free dishes at the chap fan (mixed rice) stalls.

As far as I know, if we go to the Malay nasi campur shops or stalls, we would not have any problem getting some deep fried kembong or fish curry…

…or assam fish…

…and some sayur masak lemak

…or other vegetable dishes such as labu (pumpkin), for instance…

…but we would not be completely sure that there is no belacan (dried prawn paste) or udang kering (hay bee/dried prawns) in the ingredients.

So, what did we order from the restaurant that day? Of course, I wanted the deep-fried bread crumb-coated fish fillet…

…served with mayonnaise, my girl’s favourite.

I also wanted their very nice deep fried own-made tofu…

…also served with mayonnaise but my missus was not all that keen on having two deep-fried dishes served with mayonnaise and that was why she asked for the “ang sio” version…

…with a special request for the meat to be left out. They were fine with it, I guess but I was not fond of how there was a lot of ginger, big slices of it, in the dish.

For our vegetable dish, we asked for the midin (wild jungle fern), ching chao (fried plain)…

…but we all felt it was not up to their usual standard that day.

The total came up to only RM49.00, comparatively cheaper compared to what I usually would have to fork out at such chu-char (cook &fry) restaurants but we have had some very nice dishes and super cheap deals at the chap fan (mixed rice) place here so we sure know better now and would probably reserve these more expensive places for some special occasions.

RUBY RESTAURANT 红宝石餐厅 …

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.

Part of it all…

A week or two ago, my missus steamed a slab of cod fish and my girl seemed to enjoy it a lot. I thought it was really good too so I told them to get another piece to cook for our Mid-Autumn/Mooncake Festival lunch last Saturday.

We usually go to the sunset service on Saturday evening every week and besides, we were inviting my sister to come over to our house to join us. I had to drive over to get her as she is still recovering from her surgery because of a fractured wrist resulting from a fall that she had and she has not started driving yet. That was why we had our simple mini-celebration for lunch, instead of dinner.

Yes, my missus served her steamed cod fish…

…again and yes, it was as good as the previous time.

We planned to cook a few other dishes as well but it turned out that we had a lot of things going on that morning and we simply did not have the time. In the end, I told my missus that I would go to that nice chicken rice place in town to tapao their package which, along with the fish, would be more than enough for the 4 of us.

For RM48.00, we had their pek chang kay (白斩鸡) or poached or steamed chicken (half a chicken)…

…and just like when you eat it in Ipoh, we got a plate of bean sprouts…

…by the side. I saw that in Nancy’s blog that day but of course, they have big, fat ones over there! I wished my missus had done a better job at arranging the meat in a plate though – somehow, when we had it at the restaurant, with the nicer arrangement, I thought it tasted nicer.

They certainly were very generous with the special chili dip for their chicken rice…

…and yes, we bought the special rice as well, RM2.50 a bowl…

…and it sure did not disappoint.

Along with the package, we also got this braised pork belly…

…and a huge plate of cangkok manis fried with egg…

That sure was a lot for the four of us and we were so full that day that we decided not to take out the exclusive gelato mooncakes for dessert – we probably will not enjoy them as much when we were feeling so full.

In the meantime, my friend, Teresa, also sent me some of the lovely sio bee (meat dumplings)…

…that she made herself with bay kar (mackerel/tenggiri) added and we decided to save those till another day as we simply could not take in anymore.

There you have it! Our plain and simple lunch for the Mid-Autumn/Mooncake Festival this year! Why! Because we were hard-pressed for time, we did not even bother to take out our nice crockery and use to serve the food but at least, we enjoyed the food and the company while celebrating this very special and auspicious occasion.

TING KEE CHICKEN RICE (2.292362, 111.825681)…

…is located at No. 85, Jalan Kampung Nyabor, to the extreme left of the block of shops directly across the road from RH Hotel.

Seeing is believing…

I do drop by this food court quite frequently and I often saw the people there taking out the dishes for the chap fan (mixed rice) from their restaurant, also named Grand Wonderful, at around 9.30 or so in the morning. Almost instantly, customers would appear to tapao what they would like to take home and eat and some would even bring their own tiffin carriers for the purpose.

My ex-colleagues love to get together there and chat and some would bring their tiffin carriers too so they would not need to rush home to cook their meals for the day. I did go and have a look at the food and yes, I thought everything looked good. That was why I told my missus about it, suggesting that we could just go and buy from here so she would not have to toil and slave in the kitchen every morning day in and day out but she stubbornly refused. “It’s not a problem,” she would say and insisted on cooking everything for our meals each passing day.

Well, the other morning, I told her that we would just stop by there and pick a few things for our lunch that day at my sister’s house…and finally, she relented. I just waited in the car while she took the tiffin carrier and went to buy what she wanted.

There was this very delicious looking chicken curry…

…which turned out to be as good as it looked. One of my ex-colleagues, a regular there, did tell me once that there were two chefs/cooks and one was not as good as the other. We would be able to tell by looking at the curry – if it is rather watered down, so diluted and does not look very nice, then we should just go some place else and come back another day. The not-so-good one would be the one cooking that day.

The curry gravy certainly looked thick enough that morning and yes, it was very much to our liking. All of us enjoyed it a lot.

The sweet and sour pork ribs…

…that my missus also picked, did not look any less appealling, I must say and yes, it was very good too. The meat was nice and tender, no need for any wrestling on our part to eat it.

Last but not least, my missus picked this tofu mixed vegetable dish…

…and yes, it was a hit too.

We sure enjoyed everything to the max that day, the four of us – my missus and I and our girl plus my sister and if you do not get to see what we had, you probably would not believe that I only had to fork out RM10.00 for each dish, RM30.00 altogether, less than SGD10.00/AUD10.00 for that delightful lunch, So very cheap and so very nice! You can bet that we will be going back there for more very very soon!!!

She wants that too…

My sister heard that we went and tried the pek chang kay (白斩鸡) or poached or steamed chicken here and we loved it and she told me that she would want to go and try it too. Of course she’s no stranger to the place as she too had her share of bringing our late dad there for noodles and for meals when he was still around and yes, she still goes back there for the nice food time and time again.

That was just a few days ago but I told her I would not mind going for it again as I did enjoy it a lot so we picked her up at her house that evening and went there for dinner.

Yes, she liked the pek chang kay (白斩鸡) or poached or steamed chicken…

…a lot and like the rest of us, she agreed that it was very well done and deserved a place among the best in town.

When we were here a few days earlier, I heard the people at the next table ordering the phak tee poh (the blacksmith’s wife) – we had it the first time here and have loved it since. Of course I wanted it too and the lady boss asked if I wanted it sweet and sour (like those people that night) or with canned black beans. No, I did not want it either way – usually, such sauces are for fish that is not that fresh or not that tasty so in the end, we just had it deep fried…

I don’t know what the boss used to coat the fish but it did not really matter as despite the colour, it tasted very nice.

My daughter wanted those sweet potato leaves…

…for our vegetable dish and for the soup, we had the tofu salted vegetables soup…

…which was very nicely done that evening – very clear and refreshing, the way that I love it!

No, the bill for the dinner was definitely a bit more than usual that evening because there were four of us and the servings were bigger plus that fish sure did not come cheap. My sister insisted on picking up the tab and she said it was RM77.00 altogether for the food. That worked out to less than RM20 per head so it wasn’t too bad after all.

My brother in Auckland, New Zealand saw my photograph of the chicken the other day and that got him drooling away too. He commented that he would have to come home soon to get to enjoy that. Of course, without a doubt, we shall be going back to this restaurant here to enjoy the delightful chicken and all the lovely dishes again and again whenever we feel like it.

In the meantime, I cropped this out of a photograph he sent me of him and a friend having lunch there. His friend had the chicken rice with pek chang kay (poached/steamed chicken) while he had a plate of nasi lemak with a generous slab of fried chicken…

\

…and believe it or not, they were NZD18.90 each, almost RM60.00!!! And just the other day, a friend of mine shared a photograph of the curry laksa he had in Canberra, Australia. I thought it looked nice and I told him so but he said he had to force himself to swallow to finish it off as it wasn’t so, plus it was AUD15.90 a bowl (around RM50). *faints*

I guess we can count our blessings and be happy that even with the rising prices here, things are a lot more affordable, compared to so many other places in the world.

Y2K CAFE 千禧餐馆  (2.294220, 111.825753)…

This is for me…

I guess some of you may remember that I just bought the kacangma chicken…

from here around a week or so ago and I did mention in the post that I saw the two ladies (my missus & my sister) enjoying it to the max while I did not touch it myself for fear that its high alcoholic content might be bad for my kidneys.

I do not know if that was the cause of the poonek or in Malay, the keempunan (You can read all about the traditional Malay/Melanau superstition here) that led to my fall that sent me sprawling on the ground in front of a coffee shop here. Four boys ran out of the shop to help me up but to no avail. I managed to grab a chair within reach to pull myself up and get on my feet again. Luckily, other than some aches and pain on the left side of my body where it hit the ground, there were no bruises, no fractures, nothing that a bit of massage using the Cap Tiga Kaki balsam could not help.

I was all right again after three days or so and I went back to buy some more of the kacangma chicken…

…and of course, this time, I made sure that I had a piece of the meat myself. As you can see in the photographs, they will give you three huge chunks of meat in each serving, just nice for a group of 3 but if there are more than 3 of you, you probably would have to share or order another serving so there will be enough to go round.

As far as I know, this is the only place in town where we can buy this Hakka specialty for ladies in confinement, convalescing after having given birth. It is easily available in Kuching – I have seen it among the options at one chap fan (mixed rice) place even but of course, those would not be so generous with the motherwort (kacangma) leaves, the ginger and the pek chiew (white wine) and would not be anything to shout about. Here, if we do not buy it here, we would just have to cook our own at home and yes, my missus does that sometimes.

Going back to that day when we had this for our lunch, I also bought some ikan keli (catfish)…

…and because my girl seemed to enjoy it so much, I just took a small piece, the tail end, and let her enjoy it all by herself. I bought two servings this second time around so there was enough for me as well. My sister loves it too but my missus, for reasons unknown, would not touch it with a 10-foot pole.

I also bought this lamb masala

…that day for my girl, her favourite dish in their menu. She managed to finish the whole single serving in one sitting and yes, even though I should not be eating any red meat, I did have a piece of the meat to make sure there will be no recurrence of a mishap of any kind.

Along with my purchases, the very thoughtful and generous Andy gave me their guava salad…

This was the first salad on their menu that I tried the very first time I went there and I loved it but over the years, I found myself sticking to their pomelo salad and their Payung rojak all the time.

I guess I shall be dropping by again soon enough to tapao (buy and take away) some of their other dishes to take home and enjoy.

PAYUNG CAFÉ (2.284049, 111.833014)…

…is located at No.20F, Lanang Road, Sibu, Malaysia, back to back with the multi-storey car park of the Kingwood Hotel which faces the majestic Rejang River.

According to you…

We dropped by here for lunch or dinner or for the noodles very frequently but we would usually stick to the same few dishes most of the time. Usually, they would be the ones that my late dad would come and enjoy here or buy home to eat. One of those dishes would be their sweet and sour fish fillet which we would order again and again.

In the meantime, a friend of mine, June, kept telling me that she and her late mum used to come here to eat very often too and one of their favourite dishes would be their sweet and sour pork. For some reason, my late dad never bought that – he had this habit of going for the same thing again and again, never mind how often, if he liked it so we always had the fish fillet, not the pork.

Well, that evening, when we dropped by here for dinner, I decided to order that…

…to give it a try and much to our delight, it turned out to be really VERY nice. According to my girl, it was even nicer than the fish fillet! It certainly looks like this is one dish that we shall be ordering again and again when we drop by here.

Another friend of mine, Tin Tin, asked me on Facebook whether I had tried the pek chang kay (白斩鸡) or poached or steamed chicken…

…here before or not. She said that it was addictive! I guess by that she meant that she liked it so much that she would keep ordering it again and again whenever she dropped by here. Yes, I’ve heard some other customers ordering that and the lady boss did suggest it to us a few times but I was never very keen because my girl prefers roast chicken.

That evening, however, we finally decided to give that a try as well and yes, it…

…was, indeed, really very very good, as nice as the one that we liked a lot here

…and personally, I felt that both were nicer than the ones we would have quite often here.

It certainly looks like we now have a wider range of dishes to order and enjoy the next time we drop by here. Incidentally, I saw some customers at another table having their kiam sor hay (salty crusty/crispy prawns) and it sure looked good. I could not remember eating that and when I checked my blog, it seemed like we had it in 2017

…and yes, we did like it! It probably did not come cheap and that was why we never had them again. Anyway, I am off prawns at the moment so I do not think we shall be ordering those anytime soon.

Back to our dinner that evening, we had the cangkok manis fried with egg…

…and the traditional Foochow tauhu tear (tofu soup with canned oysters)…

My girl wanted the latter so we ordered that but I only had a bit without the oysters just in case they might trigger my allergy and keep me awake all night long.

The bill came up to RM60.00 for the food – I was expecting it to be a bit more but whatever it was, it was worth it as we sure had a delightful dinner.
