I’ve heard of good compliments from HL regarding the vegetarian bak kut teh here. Finally, today I have the chance to try it out as most of them prefer the healthier choice of food nowadays.

Being a vegetarian bak kut teh, it was considered quiet nice. At least it was better than Organic Vegetarian Freshmart‘s bak kut teh. There were plenty of complimentary stuffs given to us, probably because there were 6 of us. The organic sandwich was quite nice and stuffed with shredded seaweed. Despite most of the stuff there were vegetarian, but that place serves chicken egg, probably organic chicken eggs.

The vegetable was super oily, though it tasted quite alright. The cow meat wut dun hor was pretty good actually. It’s been a while since I last had a good wut dun hor. Each piece of the meat was tender. Not overcooked until they were sinewy. Unfortunately, the Singapore style fried vermicelli wasn’t what it supposed to be. It was just like a plain fried vermicelli, but I can live with it, cause it tasted quite good too.

The food weren’t cheap either. The bill came up to around RM60 for the 4 of us. I guess their credential allowed them to charge that much. Because it was famous and there were many HK celebrities visited the place as there’s a wall with their photos plastered all over it.

After our work at OH in Jalan Ipoh, HL said it’s better we have dinner before going back office due to the bad jam. Since we were nearby Jinjang, so I recommended them my favourite fried little squids place, which is just nearby. Though it took us almost 1 hour to reach that place, due to the bad jam from Jalan Ipoh to Jinjang. It’s been so long since I last came here, probably more than a year or 2. I’ve since forgotten which junction to turn in, fortunately I suddenly thought of the name and able to find it on GPS. Lucky for me, the other 2 restaurants beside this was not POI-ed by the community. I guess this shows that this place is the better one than the other 2.

HL said he doesn’t want to have rice. Diet? Now he knows he’s fat. So we ended up with vermicelli and noodle only.

Firstly, the fried vermicelli in clams was served. I was having trouble eating that because the clams used were so tiny. It was difficult to pick them out, even more difficult than picking chopped sausages in a fried rice, because the vermicelli tends to get in the way. Like HL said, it was a little bit dry though. Then came the surprised, the “rainbow rat tail noodle”. I thought it would be fried. Anyway, the rat tail noodles were pretty tasteless, the shark’s fins style soup too. Despite plenty of crab meat in it, it tasted just salty and lacked the sweetness from the crab meat. I could even find crab’s roe in the soup. There goes my strict diet, but then, I couldn’t possibly pick out every single strand of crab meat, could I?

Finally, the star of the night was served. The fried little squids were full glazed in delicious looking dark sauce. The last few time I had this, they weren’t glazed in so much of sauce. It reminded me of my hometown’s fried little squids, except the sauce here was so much saltier. Fortunately, it was made up by the super crunchy deep fried squids. Regrettably, I’ve had quite a few of it, about 6 pieces. I guess I just can’t keep my promise of not having meat. But I’m a sucker for this. So, screw my strict diet! At least, for this time. *hehe* (I could hear DL calling me “hao poh” already)

Major failure tonight? Almost, but saved by the fried squids. Perhaps we should have just stick to having rice and dishes.

At first, I suggested Canton Fare @ Solaris Mont Kiara. But when I looked at the clock, it would’ve been 3pm by the time we reached there. Canton Fare’s last call is by 3pm, so I canceled off the plan and let my brother decide what to eat for lunch instead. He suggested to go to Leisure Mall and decide later. Hence, we went…

This was a difficult choice. I’m not a fan of Vietnamese food due to its rather dry, raw-ish feeling of their food and soak in sweet sour sauce most of the time.

Starting off with my parsley soda. The waitress mixed it before it was being served to me, so I don’t get to snap a nice photo of the presentation where there were layers in the cup. Bad move, bad bad move! Though the drink was pretty nice, slightly minty though.

The noodle was similar to fried yee min, except it doesn’t have the boring taste of yee min after having a few spoons of it. The sauce was nice too. The pork chop was covered in sweet sauce. No hints of lemon grass though. Perhaps Vietnamese’s lemon grass was different. The curry on the curry chicken has nice fragrance to it. My mum said it’s the Indian style curry which was my favourite.

The mixed fruits and meat served on a piece of fried cracker was nice too. Looked like salad. Perhaps Vietnamese style. The fried rice and fried vermicelli got my attention. They were both good. Rather unexpected that it’s coming from a Vietnamese menu. Finally, the fried mango prawn rolls. I had to break my strict diet plan and try 1 piece of it, cause it looked good. Somehow, I prefer it if they don’t cook it until it was so blazing hot. The mango was practically molten. Prawns were nice but not crunchy though.

I was deciding whether to eat instant noodle at home or to get something light at DoReMi. Ended up, I got lazy and eat at DoReMi instead.

Despite having this quite often, being 1 of my favourite choice here, amongst others such as fried rice or the Thai style fried rice. When I wanted something light and without rice in it, I’d go for the Singapore-style fried vermicelli. It’s quite nice, probably the sauce used, though lacked of tomato sauce’s taste in it which others might expect from a genuine Singapore-style fried vemicelli.

Today, I came to Restoran Hao Wei Dao with my colleague again. The variety of choices on the menu ease us on deciding the kind of food that we wanted to have, aside from the usual places that we frequent. There is still a long journey ahead in order to try every single item on the menu.

This time, the drink wasn’t too sweet or food weren’t too salty. It was just right. I guess they must have received complains from patrons. The marmite chicken rice was quite nice, though it was really watery. Some people prefer the drier type, but it was ok for me. It even has the hint of marmite in it, the bitterness. Unlike most of the marmite dish I had, they were just sweet.
