The noodles were somewhat disappointing – it had its own unique taste and was all right but I don’t remember it tasting like that and I did hear that he used to make his own flat noodles but not anymore. The texture was not quite there and it made me feel kind of sad that what I loved so very long ago wasn’t quite the same anymore. The meat wasn’t any consolation either.
I tried it (Beef noodles special)…and yes, it was good but just that like everything else, I would rather go without the green vegetables. I shall tell the guy to leave them out the next time I come here for this.
Of course I could not resist this (RM3.30 a pack)…one of my nyonya favourites, the pulut tai tai. It is nothing more than just steamed pulut (glutinous rice) with nothing more than maybe, a bit of salt and santan (c0conut milk) and tints of blue using the bunga telang ( butterfly pea flower) but I do enjoy eating it with the kaya (coconut jam). Oh my!!! The kaya was so so so good, as good as the one I bought from this bakery. If they sell that on its own, I sure would want to buy to eat with bread or crackers.
I placed my order for the tee piang, kosong (RM2 for 6 pieces)…and the ones with the very nice meat filling (RM1.20 per piece)…something like what one would find in those steamed char siew pao and waited patiently while the frying was going on. As soon as I got hold of my purchases, I hurried to meet my nephews and the others in their immediate family. The one based in Shanghai, China, could not resist taking a piece to eat right away, piping hot from the wok, and he remarked, “Gee!!! This is so very nice!” Of course, it was! Very very nice!
I love the decor like these colourful borders that line the corners below the ceiling, the dragons……and the phoenixes……and there are lovely carvings all around on the walls and there is this fountain……there too and devotees go here to offer joss sticks to the tortoise……and also to the Kuan Yin (Goddess of Mercy) statue at the back.
