Sweet sour fish

Weekday work lunch - sweet and sour fish fillet set. Rice and a fried egg were included - MYR10.90 (nett price). Lucky for me, the yolk of the fried egg was cooked thoroughly.

I asked for half a bowl of rice but because it was a set meal, they ignored my request and still gave me a full bowl of rice. As I didn't want to leave half the rice uneaten due to wastage of food, I forced myself to finish the rice and had indigestion after that. :(

Next time, I think I will insist to be given half a bowl of rice by telling them that I will still pay the full price so there is no reason for them to ignore my request.

The fried fish fillet (dory) garnished with raw carrots and onions strips.

Village Cafe - one of the more popular eateries in this office complex. Frequent by office workers who do not want to drive out of the complex for lunch.

  1. Oh I remember you saying you can only eat thoroughly cooked egg yolk. For me, I like my yolk runny. That is a lot of rice! I think I'll eat only a quarter of it.

    1. Yes, only cooked egg yolk for me. Normally I will only eat half of this portion of rice.

  6. strange that they can't even attend to your request.. they can just give you half the rice, and no one is expecting a discount on this.. I mean kurang nasi no kurang duit but tambah nasi must tambah duit, we all accept this fact right?? next time just give half of your rice to you colleague who can eat more :)

    1. Very true. All of us know - it is like kurang manis is same price. Tambah manis sometimes need to pay. All my colleagues also cannot eat more rice. :(

  9. I prefer runny yolks...poke the egg yolk over the rice, and the rice will not be too dry to eat ;-)

    1. I find the taste of runny yolks very "seng" (raw fishy taste). I can't get used to it.

  10. The rice guy in my office cafeteria also same pattern, he don't give a damn on request for more or less rice. Scoop, pour on plate, push out, one single move. If you ask for less rice, he will ask you to throw whatever you cannot finish zzz..

    1. These people really wasteful. Give less also cannot. What's his problem?

      Delete
    2. The problem is, it is not his problem. Waste is his boss's problem, or our problem if we feel for the environment..

  11. Yay I also like my yolks cooked. I always detect a sulfur-ish smell when not. My rice always finished one... until the last grain. :)
