PG begged me for lunch today, sort of, because he was in Toyota waiting for his car to be serviced. Something which took him a whole day. Since I’m so nice, so I decided to pick him up from there and let him join my colleagues for lunch. At first, I thought I’d only get a few people from my side and go for lunch, later it turns out that there were 9 of us in a total of 2 cars, hogging this place. This was the first time I’ve been here with such large group of people.

This was downright the worst yong tau fu I’ve ever tasted. The chilli sauce was nothing and the sweet sauce was bad too. The bean curd skin with fish ball was bad too. Don’t even get me started on the soup. The bad ass-ness of this was comparable to the chee cheong fun stall in SS2 by the road side. They were both probably operated by the same people or relatives to each other.

I was glad my plate of fried kuey teow was rather nice today. Despite the egg yolk was punctured, as usual. ALGJ got a bad copy as she got her plate of fried kuey teow much earlier than me. I let her tasted mine, she said mine was better, while hers and LGFL’s copy was charred badly. I thought the fried kuey teow fat lady has finally got her act together by keeping up with her consistency. I guess she still flops once a while. Fortunately, she doesn’t flop on my plate. Kudos!

Fried bean curd was nothing to shout about. The taste was mediocre. The good thing was, the fillings didn’t spill out as I pick it up with my chopsticks. Unlike some fried bean curd place, they put mines in it. Once you had your chopsticks over it, the fillings will explode right onto your face. The same sweet sauce was used on the rojak as well. It was lacking in the prawn paste taste that I preferred. The crackers were nearly non-existence. Too precious to give more, perhaps.

Today, I went for lunch with DL and MH. KCWK tagged along as well because he was let out of prison by his wife. At first, DL suggested that we have lunch in Yap Yin in Seri Kembangan. My first response was, “I can’t have stuff there while being on my strict diet.” He assured me that we were gonna have porridge there. So I agreed, thinking that maybe porridge would be something light, something like Teo Chew porridge.

Anyway, what follows weren’t exactly strict diet, per se…

... according to DL, this piece of land used to host a restaurant. Apparently, Yap Yin has took over it and flatten it into a parking area.

Aside from the vegetable being a bit bland, the rest of the dishes were overly salty. I had to have my vegetable with soya sauce jalapeno mix. MH was laughing at my concoction. Little did he know, that was probably the best way to eat bland vegetables. The bean curd has crispy skin but the soya sauce was very salty. I was surprised by it too, as the top was laden with little anchovies and those anchovies were camouflaged with spring onions. Oh well, since KCWK was able to be let of out prison today, why not me?

I was expecting the kung pao eels to be sweetened. Instead, it was another very salty dish. Lacked of sliced ginger too. The eels weren’t tender enough. I guess it’s still better to eat unagi. Then the snakehead fish, cut into slices and debone, just like the eels. I was sceptical to swallow a whole piece at first, so I have it in smaller piece, afraid that bones might stuck in my throat. The chef was good in deboning the fish, it was perfect. The meat was tender and not too soft but the very salty soya sauce didn’t sip well into the meat of the fish.

After all these, I asked DL about the big pincer crabs. He said just go ahead and order while giving me the smirk, at the notion of my strict diet. I took the challenged and told him, let’s get 2 crabs, 1 pincer for each of us since I don’t get any pincer yesterday. My niece got them all.

... 2 kam heong crabs for the 4 of us. Just right.

Another very salty dish. Since I’ve finished my rice, I could put all my concentrations on the crab itself. The kam heong sauce looked damn good, I wished I’ve got bread to go with it. Good thing was, there were still plenty of roe in the shell, but MH had the fatter one. Anyway, since I had my dosage of crab roe yesterday, I’ve got no complain today. Yummy!

The bill came up to RM130+ for the 4 of us. I wonder what kind of soya sauce they used there, it was very salty. A perfect place for salty worms to dine.
