Last Sat

All on a Saturday:
Breakfast (9am) at Swee Hing:

Customised Char Kway Teow at MYR 7 nett with Kway Teow and Yellow Noodles without cockles (see ham) and without waxed sausages (lap cheong). On the salty side but tasty enough for returns.

We share a bowl of Pan Mee (half eaten) - MYR 6.50 nett at this eatery once a week without fail. The Hainan Tea (coffee mixed with tea) at MYR 1.80 nett is thick, smooth with a strong tea taste. This shared meal for 2 pax gave us enough energy to do laundry, weeding and house cleaning until lunch time.

Lunch (2 pm):
Deep fried salt and chilli pepper squid at MYR 19 nett. The way they do it here is very different from the one that we like but they are still tasty with thin batter fully covering the pieces of squid. My favourite steamed 3 types of eggs (normal chicken egg, century egg and salted egg) dish at MYR 8 nett for the smallest portion. One plate of rice to be shared by 2 pax.

It was a very hot afternoon so each of us ordered our own iced drink. The total price for lunch is MYR 32.70 nett without a breakdown for the rice, herbal drink and iced cham (coffee mixed with tea) so my guess is MYR 1.50 nett for the rice, MYR 1.20 nett for the herbal tea and MYR 2 nett for the iced cham.

Dinner (630 pm) at Teak Kee:
This is a special dinner for 4 pax to celebrate one of our birthday on 2 of us.

We ordered this Red fish at MYR 9 per 100g so for 800g the price is MYR 72 nett because the birthday star likes to eat fish and it was steamed in light soy sauce with ginger and coriander garnishing. Tasty with a lot of smooth and fine textured fish flesh. I believe this fish is 红皂((Hóng zào in putonghua or Ang Zhor in Hokkien or ikan jenahak in BM or red snapper). Please correct me if I am wrong.

Half a roast chicken which we always order when we dine at this eatery. The price now is MYR 49 nett and it used to be MYR 43 nett back in 2016.

薯苗- Sweet Potatoes Shoots (Leaves), one of our favourite vegetable dish at MYR 16 nett.

Fruits (foc) to cleanse the palate at the end of dinner.

Total price is MYR 150 nett. We ordered 3 plates of rice (small portion) at MYR 1 nett each as I did not want to eat any rice for dinner. The titbits at MYR 4 nett is referring to a plate of fish crackers for us to snack on while waiting for the main dishes to be served. A pot of tea with unlimited refillable hot water costs MYR 1.50 nett per pax. We are regulars at this eatery so we will be back. We were just at this eatery a few weeks ago for dinner to celebrate mother's day.
