Of course, I had to buy some bread to eat it with and these days, I love toasting my bread with those grill pans, the one with lines so the toast would have lines on them…nicely toasted but not all brown and hard, lightly crusty on the outside, still soft on the inside.
My missus had their seafood aglio olio (RM20.90)…which was very good, much nicer than my girl’s carbonara – one can only eat so much of the latter before one gets jelak. It was a bit too rich and creamy
I was quite sure we had their Guiness stout pork…before but we decided we would have a go at it again. Much to our delight, it was very nice – the sauce went so well with the rice but I was not all that fond of the melamine plate it was served in. Well, at least, it wasn’t the coloured or floral ones where the colour may come off eventually like those fake banana leaf plates.
My girl loves vegetable curry and that would be an ideal dish for our no-meat Friday in the season of Lent. True to what my sister said, it…was really very nice, a whole lot nicer than the half-baked curry dishes we may get at some Chinese restaurant in town. I asked the lady and she said that we could have beef or chicken curry as well and if we wanted fish, we would have to wait quite a bit as they would need to defrost the fish first.
I decided to go for their sambal eco fish (RM14.90)…one of my favourites here and I had not had that for quite sometime now. Just like the Assam Fish, they use the tilapia from Batang Ai, so fresh that at times, they are even delivered alive! The sambal was at best, o.k. and as expected for a place like this, it was not spicy and I wished they had some cut fresh chilies in the soy sauce – they had that in the photograph in the above display on the wall. Thankfully, the fish was great and I liked the pickled cucumber too so I would say that I did quite enjoy the meal.
The ang ku kueh (RM1.20 each)…had a nicer texture, the skin, that is and I also thought the filling inside tasted a little bit better, just a bit. However, it looked smaller and it is more expensive by 20 sen. I am not so particular about the difference in price – if I am here, I will just buy the ones here and if I am there, I will grab the ones there.
I dropped by here that day to buy the yam puffs (RM2.50 each)…that my girl likes a lot and since she was home those few days, she could enjoy them for breakfast or for tea. They are very nice and I like the fibrous exterior, the char siew filling is like what is in their steamed buns
I tried their steamed char siew pao (RM2.00)…before and it was very nice so I stopped by that day to buy a few home to re-steam in the morning for breakfast
