Surprisingly good

I bought this vegetarian meat by mistake. Actually, it was that day when we have a homey steamboat on Sunday that I bought this pack in the frozen section of a supermarket.


I thought it was a real thing. Did not think clearly it was in a halal section (some more a vegetarian section), so I bought a pack to try. Only when I reached home and kept my groceries, did I really read it was a vegetarian meat.

So on one fine morning where I have leftover white rice, I decided to give it a try. I tasted vegetarian fried rice before so did not think it is hard to cook. 

So here was my own version of vegetarian fried rice. Added some frozen vegetables, egg and vegetarian char siew and dashed some light soy sauce and salt, I found that my fried rice was surprisingly good. I were really surprised myself that time. *wink*

And I have few cans of this locally made teh tarik in the fridge. I know there is a Sundrop orange in the market for many years and surprisingly now the same company produces and markets teh tarik too!

I just got to give this drink a try. You know, how I love milk tea and some more, it is made in Kuching! *meow*

My verdict?? The tea was nice; you could taste the bitterness of tea. Not much milk in it but it was fine with me. Not too sweet for my tastebud. I actually enjoying it with my plate of vegetarian fried rice. What a weird and surprise combination!!

The fried rice looks so yummy! I should try the vegetarian meat one day. Sabah Teh Tarik's my favourite, but have never seen it in a can yet. Always nice to support local products ;)

Fried rice vegetarian or not sounds good to me. I think it is good combination of fried rice and teh tarik. Yummy!
