Hakka Yam Abacus

We went to Soon Lei again for lunch and this time I ordered their homemade Hakka yam abacus - 'suan pan zi' (算盘子) in Mandarin.

MYR8.50 for the small portion

Stir fried with minced pork and lots of spring onions. I can detect the yam taste in the abacus.

Updated: Still looks the same in 2015

Updated: Price has increased to MYR9.50 (small portion) in 2015

  3. This one looks more exciting than the ones I usually see, those my mom bought from the pasar. This one has more "liew" in it.
