The last time we came here, the place was sold out. This time we were here a lot earlier. It was DL’s 3rd attempt though, after 2 failures.

While waiting for DL to park his car and order for food, these are the eye candies from the place.

... Old Master Q (老夫子) as mural for the washrooms. Classic!

... wine rack? Not really, but rather empty bottles.

... instead of leaving business cards, they keep umbrellas.

Now, the good stuff begins…

... zhup fan? This was nice, the taste was just right.

... pot of gold, basically formed with seafood of various species.

... I call this the mommy's fried egg.

... finally, a dish which the place was meant for, BBQ grilled lamb.

... it looked like a slice from a roasted duck.

... the leftover soup from pot of seafood was turned into a vegetable mushrooms soup.

And all good stuffs come at a price…


... Restoran Hafiz.

... rice with egg, okra, lamb, fried squids.

My sister brought me here for late lunch. She said the rice here is very nice, but I forgotten what it was called. The rice was cooked with chicken meats in it. The rice has nice aroma to it with slight hints of spice in it. The fried squids were horrible, while the muttons were acceptable. Fortunately, the curry sauce was quite good.

Unfortunately, the staff there was very pushy and keep putting stuff on my place, I had to order him to remove them, harshly.

... steamed nuts, not as sweet and juicy as Tai Thong's nuts.

... sweet and sour fish fillet rice.

... Kung Pao Chicken Rice.

... the bill. Seems like the steamed nuts were free of charge.

First time patronising this restaurant. Our set cost us only RM9/pax. Apparently, the steamed peanuts were complimentary. The taste were mediocre, but for such cheap price, you have a plate of rice with 2 types of vegetables and 1 meat as main course. Then you have a choice of hot or cold Chinese tea, bottomless. It’s really no complain if you are looking for a budget meal.

The sweet & sour sauce on fish fillet was acceptable, but the fish fillet was rather foul. I guess the fish was not as fresh as it could be. As for the Kung Pow chicken, it was nothing Kung Pow at all. Avoid the Kung Pow chicken set at all cost.

In the end, you’ll end up with a rather farty lunch.

... stopped by for a dessert after much walking in the mall.

... LGJ got these for us.

... HL bought these for us.

... I got HL to buy me the mango pomelo dessert.

... this fried oysters was so damn small. From the photo, it seems quite big. Photos can be deceiving or they actually shrank the size of it.

... BBQ pork and roasted goose rice.

Some of the jellies were nice, though others were a little weird. Somehow, I’ve never seen similar stuff over here. The one with red beans were a nice touch as I like red beans. But their red beans were quite tasteless. Only if they were a little sweetened. My mango pomelo dessert were nice, with heavy enough mango flavour in it, despite the bitter taste of the pomelo.

The rice however, wasn’t as good as I expected it to be. I’d thought that every roasted rice would be nice in HK, being the last of roasters. I didn’t opt for the roasted pork because EL ordered roasted pork and I managed to try a piece. As for the roasted goose, it was a nice touch because it’s really difficult to find roasted goose in where I’m from. They don’t serve roasted chicken as well, which I believe that’s a delicacy by the Hailamese.

... beef rice.

Rating: 5.5/10

DC said the Yoshinoya’s beef noodle was excellent here. Unfortunately, we ended up with only beef rice because it was already late and rice was all that’s left for us to eat. Anyway, it wasn’t all that bad. At least the bowl of rice was steaming hot. The beef was nicely cooked with little hint of beef smell and they are definitely not sinewy. Although the looks of it seem unappetizing.

I ended up with a very full stomach and it was already late. But we have plan of going for drinks. So I guess better go full stomached rather than empty and get drunk easily. Hope the alcohol wouldn’t affect much on my preservations of strict diet (though I’ve forgotten that I should practise this already, long ago.)

... shared this roasted pork with BBQ sausage rice with HL. DC said the portion was very big and I was saving my stomach for HK's egg tart from day 1 of the trip.

We stopped by here for a quick bite after leaving our bags at the inn. DC said the portion was big, hence I had to share it with HL. What I had in mind was that we were gonna eat all the way throughout HK, so it’s wise not to stuff ourselves and leave space for many other goodies we are about to meet. I was calling out for egg tarts the whole time while queuing up for the food.

The BBQ pork was so so and the sausage was a tad weird. Probably because I rarely have pork sausages. Fortunately it was laden with enough sauce, else the rice would be rather dry. Little did I know, this meal turns out to be the heaviest tasting meals I was gonna have throughout the whole trip in HK.

Mango Delight

... the last piece of Mango Delight in the counter. Yes, it was leftover from yesterday.

Set Lunch

... ALGJ's set lunch, chicken in BBQ sauce.

Flavoured Latte

... the aptly named flavoured latte. I went with hazelnut syrup.

My Mango Delight cake was a mess when it was delivered to me. Instead of standing by itself, it was laid down sleeping like a lazy pig. What a way to serve your patron their precious slice cake! I had to flip it up to take photo of it, though the cake looked like it was just gutted by a robber. My latte was nothing to complain about, but for RM7.50 each, I prefer something more tasty.

ALGJ’s chicken set looks nice though, especially that sauce. I might have guessed it wrongly, it could’ve been sweet and sour sauce. Unfortunately, she was super hungry today as she cleaned the whole plate, without any leftover for me to try.
