Restaurant Hua Xing, Sungei Way


 HAPPPPPY NEW YEAR...Yeah yeah......now 6th baru wanna wish ah? Mamarazzi baru start work today ma. Been slacking for two months. Like my school Principal says, brain also "karat"(rusted) already. Hence, starting this week I had to go to "school" loh though others had an extra week off.

Loads of "basi"(stale) posts coming up....and this is one of it. We went to this Restaurant Hua Xing sometime in Oct/Nov last year.


 
 First time here......it's on the first floor of a "complex". Haven't discover where to park the car yet. Round the block a few times and finally got lucky. A car left and we managed to get a parking . 

Simple restaurant. No worries on what to eat here coz can just point. Loads of photos of the dishes they offer pasted on the wall. 

But heard this place is famous for Bittergourd Hokkien Mee. Yup....you heard it right... BITTERGOURD Hokkien mee.




 I was apprehensive at first....come on la...which kid likes bittergourd leh...some adults don't like bittergourd, let alone kid la.

Papa ordered portion for two...hmmm...portion just nice for small eater la.


 Lemme try first.

No joke...I give it thumbs up! Super!!! Yummmmm ....

 
It was really lips smacking good. One plate was not enough for the three of us. Papa had to ordered one more plate of this for me.
Papa and Mamarazzi said the sambal belacan goes really well with the Hokkien Mee. Papa who usually shuns the sambal belacan asked for more from the lady boss there.

 While waiting for the second plate of Bittergourd Hokkien Mee, we had this friend Tang Hoon. Hmmmm.....what is it in English ah? Is it Glass Noodle?

Mamarazzi didn't quite like it coz she said too oily. Maybe because we ate this after having the hokkien mee la. The dish had cool down and become oily. If eat while warm should be great. Papa polished off this dish accompanied by the delicious sambal belacan while Mamarazzi and me polished off the second plate of Hokkien Mee.



While on the way to the car, we stopped by an Indian Sundry shop which located near the restaurant.

Mamarazzi saw this Elephant Coin box. Made of clay, she thinks. She had one just like it when she was young. These old style coin box doesn't have  hole at the bottom to take out the coin. If wanna take out, you'll have to break it...


Sayang(pity) hor if wanna break these coin box..but that's what they did back then. Do you still have any of these coin box? Mamarazzi still have one piggy bank which she hids from me.

Oh ya.....run away from topic liao pulak...Here is the address for the restaurant if you wanna try out this special Hokkien mee  : -

  13. Bitter ground?? Lari first.. Until never, I never had bitter ground. Refused to try xP
    I used to have piggy bank too when I was a very young gal which I shared together with my sister. When I know how to go bank liao, we smashed it, I mean we broke it and saved all the money into the bank. Don't look down on coins cause who know that it will turn to thousand ringgit? Hehehe...

    Happy New Year once again and just to let you know, once again you won some small goodies bag from my blog. http://dianateo-dt.blogspot.com/2014/12/top-commentators-giveaways-for-year-2014.html

  15. Happy New Year! I am surprised you like the Bittergourd Hokkien Mee. I guess the bittergourd was not bitter, right? I would enjoy it too because I like bittergourd. That coin box is unique lah. I have never seen one like that and some more got to break it to get the money out.

  19. wah.. BITTERGOURD Hokkien Mee?? this is something very new but Uncle SK likes the idea.. i think if they handle the bittergourd well, then it will not taste bitter at all.. then masuk into the hokkien mee, then probably blends so well with the dark sauce (and lard).. no wonder Small Kucing loves it so much~~

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. no taste bitter...coz "mun" in the wok already and the taste mixed with the gravy jor. That's why nice lor.....got lard leh ...yum

      Delete
  20. oh, those piggy banks!! so retro, nowadays really rarely found already.. last time Uncle SK also got one rabbit piggy bank.. red color and then with flowers, haha, very classic ones.. but of course when it was full, have to break it into pieces to take out the money.. true also lah, too sayang to break the piggy banks into pieces hor? because nowadays they are considered "antique" leh~~

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. maybe Mamarazzy should go borong from that shop and keep. Then when i grow up i can be antique collector jor

  24. Happy new year to you and your family! I think the bitter gourd in the Hokkein mee no longer tastes bitter right? The sambal must be really tasty. Actually sambal really goes well with Hokkein mee.

  27. I had those money boxes before in various animals. Those days they were all imported from China but I guess the ones on the shelves must be from local factories now.

  28. We call those coin boxes banks here. When I was young there were a lot of piggy banks.
