Food note on Sunday

We went to Thompson's Corner after church service. It has been a while since I had lunch there. Used to be a well-known food court back in 80s and 90s before other food courts and coffee shops mushrooming around Kuching.

Back then, business was a brisk but it still blooming now. Hard to find seats when you come here. Lucky for us, a table just vacant when we reached there. We seated near the claypot & bak kut teh stall and without hesitation, I knew what I want.


They said the claypot & bak kut teh stall is good so I wanted to taste the claypot chicken rice. Lucky me! I got the last claypot of the day before they close their stall. ^^

RM5.00 claypot chicken rice

Yummy and warm. Just great to eat on a cold afternoon as it has been raining since Saturday night. 
RM6.00 Chee Cheong Fun

Hubby had chee cheong fun and lui cha. I tasted the lui cha. Not bad. Soup was not so bitter so good for hubby. They were pretty generous with the peanuts too.

RM4.50

After lunch, we went home for afternoon nap. We stayed at home watching tv and I cooked dinner. The main dish of the night was my home-cooked kacangma! My hubby's favourite.



At night, we were popping some popcorns!!



Add honey and butter, and we have a popcorn snacking in front of tv!


That was how we spent our Sunday.

Not bad your Hakka! Haha. I am lazy to pound the kacangma leaves. Usually I would buy those ready pounded packet but since they do not have, I just bought this packet.

So you are just in time for the last claypot chicken rice and it looks good. I love lui cha especially with lots and lots of peanuts! Hmmm...I don't know what is kacangma, never heard of it. I don't think we have it here.

This one is pretty generous with filling. Other places not so thick.
