My stomach was not feeling well from my previous garlic fried rice. So I decided to have something light, preferable not so solid like rice. I guess there weren’t many choices for me on the menu and hence…

Today’s egg was excellent. Just right! I was enjoying my egg on toast very much. Then the miso soup, which was overly salty, yet it was very thick. I think the ingredients worth 2 bowls but served in 1. Give me hot water and I’ll dilute it nicely. Beetroot juice was not as good as my previous own combination of beetroot with carrot. At least this was at cheaper price of RM3.50. I guess beetroot is only nice if mix with other fruits, and not just some flavouring, cause I could taste the mud-like flavour in it.

The initial plan was to go Canai & Such Cafe for fried rice. But then, I thought that since the place opens until late, I can always go for dinner or supper. Then I thought of Carrefour. Later as it got nearer, there’s this place that I’ve been wanting to try but always forget. It’s Daiki Cafe, resides in SS15, sharing the same building as Subang Park Hotel.

The nasi lemak looks good. The sambal was sweet yet it was nice, though I was expecting it to be salted. The rice was not warm though, yet it has the coconut milk fragrance on it. Considered better than most place. Would’ve been better if the rice was steamy and warm and more lemak fragrance. The cendol was acceptable. It wasn’t too sweet. Plenty of coconut milk which made the ice tasted salty. The brown sugar wasn’t genuine gula melaka as it lacked the fragrance which I like. Then I ordered another cup of drink. Seeing that they served beetroot with pineapple, I went ahead with it. Though I opted for beetroot with carrot, as I don’t fancy pineapple. The change cost me extra RM2.00 on top of the original price. Steep!

Later, I ordered the toast with egg on top. My previous half boiled eggs experience was disastrous. This is the time for redemption. The toast was spread with butter and then toasted till crisp, then a half boiled egg was break onto the top of it. The sides of the bread was very crispy though the saltiness from the bread hinder the egg’s full performance. Anyway the egg was so much better than the one I had last night.

A place I’d definitely revisit.

I wanted to come here the previous time, but Kuma spotted Super Kitchen and hence we changed plan last minute. This time around, I dragged Kuma, TSL and WWS into the pirate ship.

First off, the teh c with gula melaka was quite nice at first, but the tea’s flavour was too diluted and lacked of milk. The gula melaka was significant, too significant in comparison. If only the tea was thicker and the milk as well. TSL’s mee rebus was different from what we usually have. She exclaimed, there were green chilli. To me, the gravy was salted, as opposed of what supposed to be sweet. The noodle has heavy taste of alkaline, which was really bad and yucky. Kuma’s nasi kerabu wasn’t blue as I usually had. Though, there were still some hints of lemon grass in it. I guess only that matters when it comes to nasi kerabu.

My roti john cheese was not that good either, at least it was all bad, like the mee rebus. The bread was hard, unlike those I had in Steven’s Corner, where the bread was soft and nice to chew. I barely has any cheese taste, very lightly taste indeed. RM4.50 for that, it’s pretty costly. I would’ve opted for a burger instead with that kind of price. Then the half boiled omega eggs. First batch was too raw, we had them replace it. Then the second batch seemed ok but looked very watery. After putting in some pepper and soya sauce. It felt like drinking water with pepper and soya sauce. The eggs were pretty tasteless and it was watery like WATER! H2O! Any time the worst half boiled eggs I’ve ever had, except those rotten/not-so-fresh ones. Yuck!

Finally, we had another order on the bean curd tower. It seemed kinda cute to me as I’ve never encountered such a monolith before. When it was served, Kuma exclaimed that it was indeed a tower. I tasted traces of bread, deep fried. I guess the outer layer was covered in bread and soaked in eggs before it was deep fried to crisp. The inside was made of pieces of rectangular bean curd, not a whole chunk of a single piece of bean curd though. The sweet soya sauce given was good to numb myself from eating the bean curd tower, which was vomitous after all the bad stuff we’ve had earlier. If they would’ve given some jalapeno into the soya sauce mix, that would’ve been better. Anyway, we didn’t manage to finish the bean curd tower. Kuma said that stink tofu probably tasted better than that piece of junk.

I guess I won’t be going back there again. Despite the first bad experience, there were varieties of stuff which were really tempting to me though. That could be the price to pay for being curious.
