His favourite for brunch

A couple of days ago, I went for brunch with my dad. We drove to Jalan Rambutan to this old coffee shop, Mui Chin Cafe. It is the next block to Thompson Corner, opposite the police station. The coffee shop is next to Nasi Kandar Rasool, where you could order its food over.

My dad likes to come here, especially for its chicken rice. That morning, true enough, he ordered his favourite for brunch. It was good, I have to admit. I tasted the chicken and the chilli dipping. Both were so good. 

My dad has this habit of adding some soy sauce (thick or light) into chilli dipping. Kind of reducing the spiciness or added some saltiness and taste to it. So after I took this photo, he immediately pour some soy sauce to the chilli sauce. His version of chicken rice' s chilli dipping.


The chicken was succulent and moist. Nice to be eaten just like that. I love my chicken like this. Not like most shops where they slice and bang the meat with cleaver. 


That same stall also selling Sarawak laksa so I ordered a bowl to try. It is one of the best laksa in Kuching apparently but I have never go there for breakfast. It closes on Sunday so it explains why I've never been there. And I seldom venture to this part of the city too.


The laksa was alright to me but slightly oily. I couldn't take much of the gravy as it was spicy and oily. However they were generous with the ingredients which was worthy of RM6.

Overall our brunch costs RM12. Thanks dad for the brunch treat. ;)

I also have the habit to pour lots and lots of chilly and ginger paste onto my chicken rice. So heavenly nice!

I love a good chicken rice. I notice the Malays like to eat chicken rice with kicap.

Sarawak laksa looks tasty but too oily so cannot drink the broth. Always good to spend time with anyone of your parents.
