Thinking of you

It was a Monday and most coffee shops and food stalls are off that day. I were thinking hard on what to buy for lunch as usual. No problem for the kids as they could settle for kolok mee or chicken rice for lunch. As for me, being bored of having the same stuff almost every day decided to look hard for something different that day.

This was where I ended looking for my lunch. Expert Food Court in MJC. I hardly ventured to that food court as some days, it could be hard to find parking. Luckily it was a Monday, so no problem with that.

Initially plan to take-away the Chinese economy rice from Amy Fast Food but it did not opened on Monday. I quite like the fast food there but very pricey.

After going around the food court, I ended up with this. Curry chicken rice. Wow! Felt like I hit a jackpot or something like that because not many places have a curry chicken rice food stall. Must give it a try so I tapau-ed a normal pack home. 


I immediately opened my packet to check on my lunch once I reached home. Double wow! It reminded me of my favourite curry chicken rice.

When I were young, I used to go to one of the backlane coffee shops for curry chicken rice in Palm road. After many years, the daughters took over from the parents and they have operated in 2 different locations in Kuching now. One in King's centre and another one in Ban Hock road. The last time I tasted theirs was in King's centre before I moved to Sibu. Since then, I did not go back as heard it was very expensive and portion was lesser.

My favourite curry chicken rice consists of tasty char siew, steamed chicken, a fried egg, and long beans that goes well with piping hot white rice and tasty curry gravy.

The curry chicken rice that I tapau-ed from Expert Food Court the other day was not bad. RM5.00 and they have a lot of rice and meats in it. They are also generous with curry gravy. I only used up half of the gravy.

That is how I like my curry chicken rice. Flooded with curry gravy and dig into it. Taste-wise, almost similar to my childhood's favourite. Quite enjoyable, brought back memories of the past. :) Well, I don't mind eating it again.

Sometimes, too many choices, hard to decide what to eat...

I agree with Somewhere in Singapore. If there are too many choices I have a hard time deciding where, and what, to eat. Looks nice, Rose...and coffee shops and stalls closed Monday there? Here in Montreal we have Tim Horton's, and they never close...they are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, even on Christmas day and New Year's day.

I've never tried this one, Rose. If I do see it in KL, I will surely buy a packet for myself. This, after seeing your photos. It looks so yum! ^.^

This is a new type of curry chicken rice for me. I only know of chicken curry and eat them with rice. Yours is like a steamed chicken rice with added char siew and other ingredients, then only pour curry sauce/gravy over the rice. But I can eat it your way too.

This sounds yummy, curry gravy with char siew, steamed chicken and long beans. Something new and interesting to try.

Expert? That's around Four Points, right? Or do they have their food court outlets all over town?

I was eating this - char siew & steamed chicken with curry gravy rice in the late 60's and 70's at Ann Lee, Carpenter Street. Loved it so much. Have not had it since... :(
