On my recent visit with my family here for lunch on one Sunday, I were adamant that I would eat fish meat mee hoon soup again. I had it in my previous 2 visits. I liked the appetizing sourish and heaty soup, delicious fried fish fillets and fresh fish balls.
However after I walked around to check the stalls inside and out (I did not do that in my previous visits), I found some stalls were seemed to be hidden from eye views from shop front. One would need to walk into the shop to check out the stalls. I found an interesting stall selling "curry rice banjir". If only I were fully recovered, I would be tempted to give the curry rice a try. But I ended up ordering pak lo (braised meat) rice from the same stall for RM6.
I found my pak lo rice pretty interesting in the sense it was pork belly pak lo served with some blanched long beans, half portion of hard-boiled egg and boiled potato cubes. Yes, I do not remember having soft potatoes in a pak lo rice.
Taste-wise it was alright. Not overly sweet and the braised pork belly was soft. But somehow it did not tasted like pak lo to me. Maybe I expected a thicker and fragrant pak lo like how the Hakka lo ark would be. It wasn't what I thought it would be. This did not seemed like it, it was more like braised char siew pork belly to me.
They did served a small bowl of curry gravy and small saucer of chilli dipping. I tasted the curry gravy which I think was nice. Maybe I will give its curry rice banjir a try next time. Or I may just settle for the fish meat mee hoon soup again. Lol.
