So Little

We were famished on our way home so we stopped by Good Taste in Jalil Link to have our early dinner at 4.30 pm.  I ordered  a small portion of lean char siew (BBQ pork) at MYR7.50 nett. I like to eat this char siew because it is very lean and tender. It is not those melt-in-the-mouth-caramelized-char-siew.

We shared this plate of roast duck rice and request for duck breast meat (MYR9.50 nett). We were quite shocked at the small portion of duck meat provided.

I also ordered a large bowl of wanton (dumplings) in soup. The large portion contains 15 wanton dumplings for MYR6.50 nett (43 cents each). The smaller portion contains 8 wanton dumplings for MYR4.50 nett (56 cents each). This meal is good enough to fill us up and be on our way home.

    1. In SG, roast duck rice, the duck portion sometimes also very miserable, very little (inflation)

      Last time still can get S$2 food, now no more

    2. Inflation, a frightening word.

  2. Yes, so little indeed, the duck. Not so bad if there had been a slice or two more. Wantons look good, so many too and that is quite a lot of char siew for that kind of money.

  10. I love what you ordered for your early dinner. Very nice char siew and a big bowl of wanton. Very soon the portion of everything will shrink once they increase the price of cooking gas.
