Snack for lunch

It is time for a mandatory work lunch and majority rules so everyone made their way to Old Town White Coffee. The previous time I was there, I had their set lunch which gives the best value for money and I know that but this time I did not want to have the drink that was included in all the meals in the set lunch menu so I opted for an expensive snack instead from their ala carte menu.

Chicken nuggets - MYR5.80 plus 10% service charge giving a grand total of MYR6.40 which means MYR1.28 for one small piece of nugget. So not worth it.

Is this reconstituted chicken meat or is it not?

I am really at a loss as to what to order should there be another mandatory work lunch there.

    1. Why not? Do you fry frozen chicken nuggets at home yourself?

  3. Difficult when dining in a group. I like to have healthy options, but they seem hard to find in many places.

  4. Maybe you can try their french toast or egg toast next time.

  5. mandatory work lunch?? meaning you went out for a company lunch together with colleagues yes and bosses, and company foot the bills?? haha, in that event, I guess many would order something they usually will not order and which is more expensive??

    well, nothing's new for the expensive price of such "high class kopitiam" chains right?? that explains why I seldom patronize such places, me very frugal so I rather pay less than half for the same thing at old coffee shops, hehe!! :p

  9. You don't like the kaya butter toast?

    If it's company-paid there are quite a few things I'd like from Old Town... mainly snacks which look the most interesting (but pricey).

  12. I don't like those chicken nuggets as they don't taste like chicken. I have had those from McD and they are not appealing at all.

    1. I have never seen non frozen chicken nuggets being sold in supermarkets.

    2. What I mean is if you have your own café/restaurant, you should make your own fresh chicken nuggets...and not buy common frozen ones from supermarkets.

      Delete
    3. I wonder whether anyone will bother to make fresh chicken nugget since they can just eat the chicken lah if it is fresh why bother to make into nuggets.
