Work lunch

My work lunch gang heard that this place serves a good plate of chicken rice so they decided to eat here. After eating the chicken rice, they decided that it was really delicious so they came here a few more times. They had the chicken rice during every visit while I ate "economy rice" because I wanted to eat more vegetables than the few slices of cucumbers that comes with the chicken rice.

Below are 4 of my lunches eaten here:

Tofu, carrot, potato, petola taken from soup, a slice of fish (not sure what fish this is), broccoli and rice - MYR7.50 - the taste is good enough for me.

Broccoli, Chinese Spinach (Stir fried), sardine in tomato sauce and rice - MYR5.70 - keeps hunger at bay.

Same as the above but with a slighter bigger piece of sardine - MYR5.70 - I am pleased that they charged me the same price as the previous time when I selected the same dishes. I like consistency.

A slice of deep fried fish (nice because it is not salty when this type of deep fried fish is usually salty due to the batter used), stir fried bitter gourd and stir fried french beans, rice - MYR 7.5 - because this slice of fish is bigger than the ones I took before.

This is the eatery located at Phileo Damansara 1. Prices are nett.

  2. If I go economy rice, I'll take the bittergourd and tofu with some curry to drench my rice. I need my rice to be wet, flooded even :D

  5. Looks great but the economy rice isn't all that economical...and that's generally the case everywhere, but maybe in the region of RM5-RM6 usually, here.

    1. Due to the price of raw food that has increased too, I guess.

  6. Huh? Nasi kandar place selling broccoli and bitter gourd? This is so very awesome!
    Sometimes, I will order a plate of chicken rice (or siew yoke rice), and then top up veges at the zhap farn stall and pay for the veges separately. Cost more than usual, but, that's the price to pay if want a balanced meal :)

    1. Is this place considered a nasi kandar place? I find the spread of food very different from those served by the famous nasi kandar kayu.

    1. Yes, same boss. Yes you can do that too but will be expensive like what Realgunners has mentioned above.

    1. I am scared that if I take more than that will be very expensive - exponential costs, hehehe.

      Delete
    2. Well I'm even stingier... usually 1 veg 1 meat haha.

      Delete
    3. I think if 1 veg and 1 meat, the price is not as "dai" as 2 veg and 1 meat - hahaha, I am more calculative than you.

  11. You know, Mun... something in common with you... the portions here suit me.. more vege and less rice! Like!

    1. We are small eaters, cannot eat so much rice, right?

  12. I love economy rice too because I want to have balance nutrition. However nowadays economy rice is no longer cheap!

    1. But it is still cheaper than most food unless you want to include plain white bread in a loaf.

  13. I recognized this shop and think I have been there too because my wife sometimes conducted her hypnotherapy at the centre there at Phileo. I didn't know their chicken rice is good but I would prefer to eat more vegies like you. I had to google to find out what was Petola! LOL

    1. I have walked past The London College of Clinical Hypnosis before. So that's the centre?

      Hahaha, actually you cannot see the petola in photo 1. They were hidden underneath the tofu and potatoes.

      Delete
    2. Oh! I thought my eyes had problems as I could not see the Petola earlier! Wakakaka

      That Hypnosis Centre conduct all their training classes at the School of Medicine in University Malaya. Sometimes they have patients coming for hypnotherapy help and my wife is the only one who could speak Mandarin to help some referred cases at that centre.

    3. Hahaha, no nothing wrong with your eyes. Your wife is really a super woman, can make moon cakes, do hypnotherapy and can even speak Mandarin. You are one lucky man to have married her. :)

    1. For a project (short term only), yes. There are a few non-halal food eateries too but more halal ones. Good to hear you can eat these kind of food, some of my friends can't because not used to them, they prefer just the chicken rice.
