Mixed no rice

I have decided not to eat rice for lunch when eating at this new-found "economy" rice place because I feel too full if I take rice with 3 dishes. Below are my chap fan (mixed rice) with no rice for last week.

MYR 7 - peasprouts, spinach and fish

MYR7 - amaranth green (yin choy), cauliflower with sugar snap peas, fish with tofu and tomato 

MYR6.5 - amaranth green (yin choy), pak choy, fish

MYR7.5 - sweet and sour fish, celery with chicken strips, brussel sprouts leaves (choy tam)

MYR6 - chinese cabbage (wong nga bak), water convolvulus (kang kung), fish slices with ginger and spring onion.

  3. I sometimes want to do the same too, but.. in the office, only girls eat "zhap fan" without the "fan", and I don't want to look like a girl, so...

  4. As for me, I still prefer a little rice as vegetables alone can be a little salty.

  5. I used to have mixed "no" rice too when I was cutting down on carbs.. but now I think having a little is not actually that bad.. the stall I frequent already know I want "small rice" and he will automatically give me just half a portion since the second time.. I like the service, he remembers the customer!! :)

  6. No rice = no carbs. Can ask for half or less.

    1. Aha, you may be surprised to know that some veges, sauce, gravy and meat contain carb too.

  7. I can only do that (no rice, I mean) when at home....coz then I can cook a lot more vegetables. Outside stalls give too little vege which is not enough to make me full (if I take more, got to pay more)!

  9. normally i will take rice with the dishes. The chap fan dishes sometimes are too flavorful that needs to be neutralized by eating rice.

  15. Mixed rice with no rice?

    I'll still be very hungry! :)

    It's the rice that makes me feel good and I usually get an extra portion. The prices are reasonable though, I just realize you take A LOT of veggies e.g. a large portion. The place I go to would probably charge RM 2-3 per portion if it's that much and the fish would be RM 4.

    Everything looks so good though, to be honest, mixed rice is my comfort food and I like eating it.

    1. This place charges MYR2 or MYR1.5 for a portion of vegetables depending on the type of vege. Wong nga bak is always MYR1.5 and the rest MYR2. Fish is always MYR3. Oh and they decide on how much is a portion. We consumers do not get to scoop the dishes.
