After check out from the hotel, we went hunting for lunch pulak. This round is Nyonya Food.
Didn't know which restaurant is good so we simply closed one eye and tembak one. Mamarazzi choose this restaurant coz saw their big signboard at a road junction.
Eh eh..these "keropok" looks a bit like those Mamarazzi bought from San Shu Gong. Papa don't eat all ah...I want some.
Then we proceed to order some dishes. Papa wanted "Terung Sambal Belacan" (Eggplant Cooked With Shrimp Paste?)
The Waitress brought us this instead. .. Sambal Belacan. Miscommunication. Must have heard "tolong tambah belacan"(Please add/give belacan).
Well, the Sambal Belacan tasted real good. Blessing in disguise.
Again we placed the order for the Terung Sambal Belacan. This round the lady got it correct. The taste suits us.
Auntie Florence wanted to try Nyonya Chap Chye(Nyonya Mixed Vegetable).
Hmm...quite good. I ate this with my plate of rice. Love the gravy.
Prawns with Petai. Sure Kaw Kaw LC will drool seeing this dish.
Very special Omelette. It's fried with Cincalok. Cincalok is made of fermented small shrimp or Krill.
Some may not like it but Papa, Auntie Florence and Uncle Patrick like it very much. Hmmm...as for Mamarazzi and me, we ate a bit.
Papa and Mamarazzi heard so much about this dish, Ayam Buah Keluak.
It's basically Chicken cook with Keluak Fruit. This Keluak fruits is known to be very poisonous of not cooked properly.
It's the first time for us tasting this Buah Keluak.
It's in a thick shell. We have to dig out the pulp and eat.
Hmmm....taste rather anti-climax. Nothing much special.
At first, Mamarazzi thought it would have a very strong taste or something like that but it didn't. Taste normal.
We also had Asam Fish. Mamarazzi love it.
I have "invented" a new way of eating rice. Put it on the keropok and ate with keropok. Chomp! Chomp! Chomp!
Again we ate Sotong Goreng Kunyit(Squid Fried with Tumeric).
Taste real good. Love the crunchy parts.
Hmmm how many dishes did we had? ...7? Sure if Ah Mah was there sure will say "aiyo ..lu lang order ani jeh"(You all ordered so much) .
No worries, we ordered small portion. Each person gets a bite of everything.
Half way eating, the Lady Boss came over asking us if we wanted to order any Cendol as the Kicthen will be closing for the session soon. The Restaurant close at 2.45pm and re-open for the evening at 6pm.
Ya we had some Cendol. Mamarazzi likes this Cendol than the San Shu Gong ones. But Papa said he likes the Cendol from Bibik House better.
Total Bill comes up to RM125-50. Not that expensive, right? Food was not bad. Service was fast. Thank you very much to Uncle Patrick for the lunch treat.
