We seldom go to King's Centre area for food as it was a way too far for us. 

However on one Saturday we needed to collect a car from my parents's house, so my man suggested to go to this cafe for breakfast beforehand. 

Little Skill.  It has been ages since we visited this noodle shop. Not only because it was far from our place but the food was rather pricey. 

But since we haven't been here for quite sometime, we were happy to have our breakfast that morning. 

We ordered 3 sets of this (noodle + mixed meats soup)  and 3 extra plain noodles. 

The bowl was big but not the noodle. Portion too little that my Jay ate 2 bowls of noodle that morning. 

The soup was great as it was in the past. Slices of fish fillets, meatballs, fishballs, pork belly, soft tofu and greens and salted mustards to complete a lovely bowl of soup.

The sliced pork belly was tender and went  so well with vinegar and soy sauce dipping.

Total price inclusive of drink is RM67. 50.

Another breakfast date

It was a weekday and as usual, I sent my man to work since his car was still not ready.

2 older kids were at home, still in their beds as it was a Deepavali holiday. Jamie had school as usual and he can't escape as it was his assessment test day that morning.

It was 8am when we reached Blossom Cafe. It was early so I had a breakfast date with my man.

I had the usual Sarawak laksa. A good and satisfying bowl of Sarawak laksa.

My man had the handmade noodle with a side bowl of laksa gravy. Handmade noodle, not my cup of tea. Don't ask me why, I never enjoy handmade noodle. 

I also bought 2 packs of kolo mee for the kids at home before I bid my hubby goodbye.

Been a while

It has been a while since we went to a movie. Since we installed a TVBox at home, we hardly catch a movie in cinema.

However last Saturday, we went for one. A little family time doing the thing we used to enjoy. We usually go to TGV in Vivacity for movie but the tickets were sold out. We wanted to watch Maleficent. Since TGV was booked, we decided to try MBO, The Spring. Luckily still have some seats left so we pre-purchased the tickets online that morning. A nice story and happy ending, but I prefer the first movie more. 

Anyway, after we finished the movie which was before 5pm, we settled our dinner and filled up our tummies in The Spring food court. Maybe it was still early in the evening so the food court wasn't packed. 

We ordered our own food. The kids had the broasted chicken set from Sugarbun. Hubby settled for his usual beef noodle. I was the last one to go around the food court and scout for food.

Finally I settled for the Indonesian stall. Previously I tried its nasi bebek and I quite enjoyed the dish. Told myself I would be back to try other dishes out. So, this round I went for its nasi ayam geplek kuning.

RM12.90 for this rice dish. Served on a brown paper on top of a basket. 

The chicken was moist and tasty. The yellow rice was soft and slightly fragrant. I liked its sambal dipping. Not too spicy but good enough to go around.

A week later

A new cafe opened not long ago. Y. Y. Cafe. It was packed on the first day when it opened. 'New toilet' as we called it, and people always curious to try the new toilet. 

We went over a week later for breakfast. It was not so packed then so we decided to visit the new cafe. 

The nasi lemak stall happened to be operated by a mother of Jan's primary school classmate. It so happened I wanted to try her nasi lemak before saw her at the stall. So I showed a little support to her by ordering her nasi lemak. A normal nasi lemak for RM2.50.

Hubby went for the Sarawak laksa but it did not looked like Sarawak laksa at all. Full of coconut milk, lack of the spice and flavour. RM6 for his normal bowl of laksa. 

We waited quite a while for the kids' kolo mee. Kolo mee business was good as I saw most tables ordered that. RM3.50 per bowl. I didn't take shot of the kolo mee as kids were hungry and couldn't wait to dig in. 

The prices of the drinks were reasonable. And a new hang out place for those going to the Level Up gym which located above tge cafe.

You would not know that you could find nice food at the backlane of shops till someone brings you there. 

It was the case when my man brought me to this night hawker in Poh Kwong Park area one evening. Actually someone brought him over beforehand and then he brought me there another night. 

This one hawker stall only opens at night, and it is located at the backlane carpark space of the old Poh Kwong Park shoplot. 

A bowl of kueh chap for RM7. Tastewise it was flavourful. Not overwhelming but just alright for me. 

The location of the stall for those who is unfamiliar with Poh Kwong Park.

Sorry that the photos were not that clear as it was rather dark for any good photography.

Last week

Hubby's car broke down when he went to his fishing trip in Sematan early this month. Now the car has been towed back and still in the workshop waiting for part to arrive and get fixed. 

So he has been without car since last week. I become his driver for over a week now. Dropped by Jamie in kindergarden and then send him to his office. Some day I would joined him for a breakfast if we were early. 

For instance on one fine day last week, we had our breakfast in Blossom Cafe. As usual the place was packed with working class people having their breakfast before off to work.

I tried its Sarawak laksa for the first time. RM6 for my normal bowl. 

It was alright, not overly strong in spices and flavour. I prefer the previous operator's Sarawak laksa but they stopped operating for few years now. The kolo mee lady took over the laksa stall now.

If I am to choose, I would go for their laksa than kolo mee. Their noodle is so-so and rather pricey. RM4 to RM5 per bowl.

In the evening my man would get someone to send him home. No need to worry about picking hum up from work as his working hour is unpredictable. Some night he would get a Grab car to send him home.

Never been here

I had never been to this coffee shop before although I had visited the other coffee shop for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Stapok Seafood Restaurant, heard of good review on its char chu. One morning, hubby and I dropped by to give this place a try. And we met our couple friends there for breakfast after dropping off our kids in the same kindergarden.

I had my usual morning drink, teh c. Loved that they served in the old cup and saucer. 

I meant to try the Malay stall as I read that their mee kari with cucur was nice and highly recommended. But it was not opened when we were there. So I had to settle for other from another stall. 

Hubby settled for the kampua. He requested the soy sauce. RM3.50 per plate. It was nice, according to him. 

Yours truly went for pork porridge. RM4 I think, I can't remember the exact price for the porridge. 

A nice meet up with our friends over breakfast there before we went our seperate way.

Brought back memories

It used to occupy the whole building but now it has downsizing to only one lot. Located in front of St Joseph Primary school, the building was still standing after many years. 

Wisma Sugarbun as I vividly remember it. Used to patronise this place as a child. You could say that I grew up eating Sugarbun's broasted chicken. This building brought back some childhood memories as I used to go with my family on weekends or schoolmates during secondary school days. Those were the days when teenagers and young adults met up and had a good chat over meal there.

When I lived in Kenyalang Park as a little girl, my parents would brought us to the Kenyalang Park Sugarbun. We would walked as we stayed not too far from the Kenyalang Park centre.

Back to the present day, I brought my three kids for lunch in this Sugarbun outlet after our church service last Sunday. My man was not around as he went for an overnight fishing trip in Sematan. The Sugarbun outlet wasn't too far from the church so I thought of dropping by to check its Borneo Asian food.

It has been ages since I came here. Not the same anymore. I mean, the environment and setting. But it was much nicer and modern now, to keep up with the time and trend.

My kids like Sugarbun broasted chicken so they did not complained when I told them that we were going here for lunch. It has been a while they had the chickens. 

The menu displayed 2 main sections, namely the broasted chicken combo (inclusive of drink). 

The other section was the local delights such as eco fish, assam fish, chicken mushroom and newly added Sabah garoupa fish. 

I planned to try the Sabah giant garoupa fried rice combo but unfortunately their fried rice was not ready. It was almost 1om and their fried rice wasn't cooked. So much to my disappointment. 

The kids had their 1 piece broasted chicken combo. 

Yours truly after a long time debating on what to eat, had to settle for its eco fish assam claypot combo. 

Such a long time I did not indulge in assam fish. Delicious and appetizing meal for me. I wish I didnt get the head part as not much flesh. The fish was deep-fried first then added to other ingredients in the claypot.

That was our last Sunday lunch. A long overdue visit to Sugarbun. :)

Morning and evening

One morning, hubby and I woke up early so we went out for breakfast together. Just the two of us. Kids still sleeping so we quietly sneaked out for breakfast.

We went to Choo Choo Cafe for its noodle. Lately, the husband of the operator took over the cooking and preparing the noodle and we found it was much nicer and tastier than the lady operator. 

I used to dislike its kolo mee hoon as it was not properly cooked. Hard to chew. But of lately when the man took over, his kolo mee hoon is my favourite. That morning I requested for kolo mee hoon with fried fish strips. Crispy and tasty strips, I enjoyed them very much. 

In the evening on the same day, I didn't cooked dinner. Since we were going for our grocery shopping, we went to this nearby food court for dinner. 

I ordered bak kut teh and pork leg rice from the same stall for dinner. 

I special requested pork belly, tofu puffs and braised egg for my pork leg rice. Yup. No pork leg in my pork leg rice. Lol. 

They were pretty generous with meats but I prefer they sliced the meat thinner. Somehow my teeth was not able to chew on those chunky meats. Lol. 

I ordered this bak kut teh to share with my man. It was mild in taste. I prefer the pork leg rice more.

Back again

I can say that this restaurant serves one of the best dim sum in Kuching. Boulevard Restaurant in Boulevard Mall. 

Our last visit was on my birthday in August. One month has passed and we were back again for more of its delicious dim sum. 

It was end of last month. Hubby suggested for a dim sum breakfast for a change.

We mostly had the same dim sum and dishes. For instance the plain noodle for the boys. 

And my girl's favourite, egg tart and pork with century egg congee. 

Its har kaw never stopped to impress us. The thin and translucent skin with fresh prawn fillings, the best in our own opinion. 

Our newly acquired favourite from this restaurant. Deep fried beancurd fish cake. 

One of the best chicken feets I ever had was from this restaurant as well. 

Somehow the deep fried prawns rolls were getting oilier. Too greasy to enjoy them. They should do something about it. 

We also ordered its char siew pau which went into Jay's tummy. He had a plate of plate noodle and yet he could finished the paus as well. 

On this visit, we tried a new dim sum that we had never ordered in the past. Deep fried sweet yam rolls. 

If you enjoyed those yam basket served in Chinese restaurant, then you will definitely like this. I loved it. I ate most of the sweet yam rolls. Not greasy and it was so good. 

Another satisfying and delightful dim sum breakfast.

My half sister and brother-in-law came back for a short holiday last month and I managed to catch up with them one morning over a breakfast. 

Together with my dad and Jan, we went to this Meng Kui Cafe.  A corner shop, a building behind Chong Choon Cafe. I was not familiar with this place other than the famous Chong Choon laksa. I didn't even know this cafe at all although it is well known for Heng Hua noodle. 

The shop was initially visible from the main road but they moved to the back. Now it was so well hidden at a deserted building. One would not be able to find this place if you never venture to this area. Someone like me!! Lol. 

The cafe was well air-conditioned. The wall was decorated with weaved mats; it did not have that Chinese coffee shop feel. Not many customers around, only 2 tables occupied when we were here. 

Its specialty was Heng Hua mee suah. Option of wet or dry. Sis and I had its Heng Hua mee suah in soup. The broth was sweet with a slight ginger flavour to it. Seaweed, sliced egg, peanuts, mushrooms, minced meat, sliced meat and prawns accompanied the mee suah. 

First time I had such dish. Quite nice and different to have for breakfast once in a while. 

My bil had the same but he requested for handmade noodle. I did not take photo of his food. Dad did not have any as he already ate earlier. 

My girl went for its fried meehoon. Quite a portion but she finished it in no time.

They have other local dishes such as kolo mee, tomato noodle, fried rice, pan mee and other noodle dishes. Maybe I will bring my family here on one weekend to try their other dishes.

Google here for location and direction of this hidden cafe.

Miscellaneous Picture #92: September favourite

Spent 2 nights in the nature, away from the city 

Haze was back last month!! 

My sis bought this cloth face mask from oversea few years ago and finally I make use of it. Jamie liked the colour and wore it when he went to school. 

My man spent a weekend in KL, attended Andy Lau's concert

Taekwondo upgrading test for him. Enjoyed his yam ice-cream from Magic Bite after the test. 

Had this lovely fried taugeh kway teow in Everwin Kopitiam

It has been a while since I ordered fried dishes from this fried stall in Big One Food Court, MJC and in my latest visit, I had this tomato kway teow
