Noodle House

It was late Saturday evening where Jan went to a friend's house for Hari Raya Open House lunch. After that together with her friends, they walked to Waterfront and Plaza Merdeka for sightseeing and fun. 

We picked her up from the mall around 6pm and then went to this Chinese restaurant for dinner. Hong Kong Noodle House in Padungan. 

Used to enjoy its roasted duck rice so I took the opportunity to order the same dish. Tasted almost the same, but the rice was rather wet to my liking. 

Jan had the Yangzhou fried rice. She took half of it as she had some snack in the mall earlier. The remaining, we brought home. 

My man wasn't that well that evening so he ordered Teochew porridge set. It used to be nicer and grander with more condiment. Now only 3 condiments for a big bowl of white porridge. 

The man treated us lady to shark fin soup. Long time didn't have this but ours were tad salty. 

The sambal vegetables and salted egg yolk eggplants were additional order from the kitchen to go with our food.

For the boys, we packed pork chop rice for them. After we were done, we drove home and call it a night.

Mix pork soup

It has been such a long time since we visited Abundance Food Centre in Bormill for breakfast. It was my off day last week so together with my man and girl, we went here for breakfast. 

It was just after 8am and the place was packed but we were able to find a table, just in front of this noodle stall. Big Fat Aunt Noodles was the stall and without further ado, the three of us ordered 3 sets of its noodle and mix pork soup. 

Luckily it wasn't a long wait and soon our noodle set arrived to our table.  Yummy!! The vinegar noodle and its bowl of offals and pork meat. 

You could guess you got the most of the innards. Of course, my man. Most of my and Jan's went into his bowl.  Other than those, we finished our noodle and soup without wasting!

Late afternoon

It was a Monday and with my man we went to Liang Gee Kopitiam for a late afternoon break. 

My man said the Indian Rojak was nice so he ordered one plate RM9 to share with me. It has been a while since I tasted one. This rojak was not bad, tasted alright to me. 

I came back for the fried kway teow as I remembered it was nice. RM7 for the noodle, and there are some fresh cockles in it, which I enjoyed.

Prawn mee

Our newest addition to the coffee shop. Anyone fancy the distinctive and flavourful Penang prawn noodle?

Then we have the fix for your craving. RM9 for a good bowl of tasty and appetizing noodle broth. The sweet and spicy taste is what you would enjoy for either brunch or lunch. 

For now they only serve noodle with the prawn broth but soon they will add more variety such as vermicelli and kway teow. Give it a try. Not overly spicy or too strong but for those that appreciate stronger palate, its belacan dipping will add extra spiciness and taste to it.  

Stall: Prawn Noodles 
Coffee shop : Jia Hao Cafe

Red kolo mee

It was late Tuesday afternoon. My man and I went to Open Air Market for afternoon break. Our choice was this corner stall, Red Kolo Mee. 

I used to patronize this stall when I was young. Its red kolo mee was well loved and sold like hot cakes!! Somehow to taste it again after so many years was rather nostalgic. 

RM5 per bowl now. Position wasn't huge but it was alright for me. My man complained he wasn't full so he ordered this bowl of wonton soup to share with me. 

RM5 too for this. We enjoyed the silly soft skin of the wonton.

Lion City

No,  I didn't went to Lion City but instead to this Lion City Hainan Chicken Rice shop in Pines Square, Batu Kawa. 

Opened few months ago, this franchise eatery serves Singapore Hainanese chicken rice and other Asian cuisine. 

It was my off day on Tuesday. And also Jan's day to sit for her driving law test. She passed her test with 46 score out of 50. Well done!! Soon she will start to learn her driving and in few months time, taking her driving practical test. 

The centre where she took her test was not far from Emart hypermarket, so after I picked her up, we went to the hypermarket for grocery shopping. Then we stopped by Pines Square to give this eatery a try. It was our first time dining in Lion City Hainan Chicken Rice. 

The place was not full when we arrived there , which was slightly after 10am. Not long after scanning through the QR and placing our order, my plate of steamed chicken rice came to our table. 

I liked the oiled rice. The steamed chicken was fine but the chilli dipping was nice. The portion was just nice for me. 

My girl had a try of its nasi ayam penyet. It was nicely presented and served on top of the brown paper but my girl didn't enjoyed it much. Chicken was rather tasteless and dry. 

Iced lemon tea for her while I tasted its cendol. Sweet shaved ice but the cendol wasn't chewy. I like it chewy in texture. 

As for the boys who went to schools, we ordered roasted chicken rice as takeaway for their lunches. 

Our lunch took us more than 30 minutes there before we made our move. The morning was scorching and it wasn't comfortable to stay too long outdoor.
