My missus had their mee mamak (RM5.00)…and she enjoyed it
The steamed char siew pao…was very good too
So I ordered the one here (RM7.50)…- the Hainanese curry chicken rice to try. It was all right – I felt that the curry gravy was a little too thick with too much santan (coconut milk). There was no char siew (barbecued pork) but they did give a few slices of those freshly-made Chinese sausage
The pad Thai…was really good and we sure enjoyed it a lot
They ordered this dish for their nephew, the butter milk chicken…as he was allergic to pork and it turned out to be very nice and we kept helping ourselves to it
Of course, we HAD to try their pho bo (RM18.00)…which was good and they gave us this plate of Thai basil leaves and taugeh (bean sprouts)…to add, should we feel like it and we were also told to add the special chili sauce and whatever sauce provided at every table for that extra kick and to bring the taste to a whole new level. Well, it was nice but no, it did not get me jumping with delight the way I saw some people responding when they had this at some Vietnamese restaurant in the country or in the country of origin and no, you would not catch me rushing back for more.
Of course, I asked for the boat noodles, beef in boat soup (RM1.90)…and to say that I was disappointed the moment it was served would be an understatement. What it lacked in looks was not compensated in taste – it was edible but no, it did not blow me away and no, I would not want another bowl, much less a whole lot more to stack up sky high once I was through. Frankly, I just can’t understand what all that hoo-ha was all about.
The pork meatballs (RM10.00)…were really good
Golden Cheese Cake It was good, pretty much like all the rest…but it had a sprinkling of raisins at the bottom, not that this was anything to get excited about.
The mum ordered their tako meshi (mixed rice with octopus)…which looked like fried rice to me and she too said it was all right.
