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.

Had a very late lunch today because I was waiting for AC’s call. When he finally calls, it was almost 3pm. Anyway, went to meet him up and have lunch nearby the place. He recommended stuff from the morning market, which apparently most of the stalls were closed. Of course they were, it’s already half way through noon. So we ended up in Medan Selera instead.

Cendol was nice. Aside from it being served on a cup, there were nothing much to complain about. Though I was hoping gula melaka was being used but the brown sugar used wasn’t all bad. The red beans has the roasted fragrance to it. Though it’s a bit too sweet, only a bit. Much much more better than road side’s Indian’s cendol. I’d come back here for a quick fix of cendol whenever I feel like it.

Fruits rojak was acceptable. At least it was better than Jalan Ipoh YTF’s rojak. There were plenty of water spinach in it. The only complain I had was, instead of giving large pieces of crackers, it was served in shattered pieces of crackers, which doesn’t have much tasting to it.

Popia was quite nice, though it lacked the taste of red sweet sauce. It was moist and juicy, with the same crackers used in rojak found in it. Despite it was soft, the fillings don’t fall apart as I pick it up with my chopsticks. I guess the auntie who made this has years of experience in making good popia. I’ve got nothing much to talk about on the fried tofu though. Probably not overly sweetened by the sweet sauce in it, like most fried tofu do.

After having so many sweet stuff, cendol, rojak, popia and the filling in fried tofu were sweet too. I was stuck with either ordering a mee jawa or chicken rice. Mee jawa was more suitable for my strict diet because of the lacked of meat, but I ended up with chicken rice anyway because I wouldn’t want another sweet food.
