I almost forgot about this post till I were browsing through my camera album and saw the photos.
It was the last Sunday of April. Hubby asked me not to cook that evening so we went out for our dinner. At that point, we did not know what we want for dinner. We did not know where and what to eat but it would be in the city centre since hubby needed to do transaction in a bank.
So after done with the banking, we were almost in the old part of the city. The thought of having dinner in Open Market opposite Electra House sounds appealing to us. A nostalgic place to have dinner with my family. Used to come here a lot for dinner as a child. The place is still the same; crowded and busy.
I used to eat in one of the stalls called Chai Heng but hubby wanted to try the middle stall, Chai Shen Ye.
It was fine with me. We seated under the night sky overlooking the road. We placed our order with a native guy and waited for about 20 minutes for our food to come. While waiting, we were looking at the buzzing road and old buidlings that were right in front of us.
First to come was this chai poh omelette (salted radish omelette). Huge! We did not specify the portion but it was for 3 to 4 pax.
Then this delicious and crispy salted fish pork belly arrived. I enjoyed this dish the most.
Then we had the Japanese soft beancurd with minced meat. Milder in taste but we did not mind at all.
We had belacan kangkung to tantalize our tastebuds. Such a huge plate but we finished up the vegetable and leave no stalk behind!
We also ordered soup, which was fish maw soup. So many thick slices of chewy fish maw in the soup.
Overall our dinner costs RM82 which I thought was rather steep although the dishes were medium portion. Oh well, Chai Shen Ye (God of Prosperity) for the owner indeed. Lol.
