Walk-in Price

On Friday 1.jul.22, went out to pick up a letter so might as well buy food for the day.

*** Kopitiam 95 Desa Petaling ***

12.31 noon - braised pork knuckle rice. We buy this rice frequently using Foodpanda and shopeefood apps and with e-vouchers and free delivery, the price ends up lower than walk-in Price.

This stall does not accept tng payment. The walk-in Price is MYR 14.90 nett.

1.24 pm - my portion of the braised pork knuckle rice. The lean meat is very suitable for my consumption.

5.19 pm - wanted to buy steamed soup for his dinner but the stall is closed for the day. As I was wondering on what to buy as a replacement, an old lady and her son recommended their congee to me so I bought a small portion of fish congee at MYR 8 nett and ate it for my dinner. Taste is quite nice. He tasted a bit of it.

6 pm - I bought this yee Mee soup MYR 8 for his dinner. When he saw it, he asked me is it from a pan Mee stall because he noticed that the ingredients used are ingredients used for pan Mee. He feels that those ingredients are only suitable for pan Mee so I must remember not to buy yee Mee from a pan Mee stall for him. I tasted a bit of this yee Mee, the broth is on the salty side so no next time.

The ingredients are pork balls, cekur Manis leaves, poached egg with very soft yolk.

*** Upper quarter portion of a Duck ***

12.43 noon - bought a quarter duck, breast portion MYR 18, used to be MYR 16 a few months back, from a roadside stall at:

 89, Jalan Hang Tuah 4, Salak South Garden

The name of the stall is Choy Kee Roast Duck. It is available via shopeefood delivery.

*** Simplicity Sandwiches & Coffee Cafe ***

2.16 pm - Chicken and Spinach Quiche from Simplicity Cafe. A Savory pastry, baked egg cream custard with Chicken and Spinach.

Two food items for my meal of the day.

2.17 pm - Ribeye Steak Sourdough from simplicity cafe: Roasted Ribeye Steak, Tomato Slices, Cheddar Cheese, Whole Grain Mustard, Sweet Gherkins.

The sourdough sandwich is wrapped in paper.

Simplicity Sandwiches & Coffee Cafe is located at:
D'Alamanda Condominium, Jalan Pudu Ulu, Taman Pudu Ulu, 56100 Cheras
So the delivery fees after delivery discount is still MYR 6 so I used MYR 5.25 shopee coins to lower down the price to MYR 21.75 for these two items.

A good meal for myself. He didn't eat any of my food because he prefers his own food.

*** Golden Chopstick Chap fan ***

10.54 am - his chapfan lunch.

2. 1 bowl of Pork trotter vinegar
3. Yinchoy
4. Oyster mushrooms
5. Strips of gourds

I didn't eat any of the chapfan. He also bought a loaf of gardenia wholemeal bread at MYR 3.60 from a 7-11 convenience store.

*** Canton Kitchen ***

5.11 pm - his requested dinner of sweet sour fish fillet rice. I bought it from Canton Kitchen instead of Yan Kitchen. There are 7 slices of fish fillet and he asked me to eat two slices of fish fillet and a bit of rice since I am still full from the sandwich and quiche. this is our default sweet and sour fish fillet followed by Yan Kitchen.

Bought just one food item using shopeefood. Used MYR 1 of shopee coins. Price is MYR 13.67 just for this one item which is a reasonable price.

Request Reached

On Wednesday 29.jun.22, he took the Elderlies to the public hospital for their regular doctor visit which has resumed after being postponed due to the pandemic so we didn't go out to buy food. I asked him what he wants to eat and he replied siew yuk rice and sai Yung choy soup so I searched for an eatery with both items and ordered via pandafood from that eatery. I didn't order any food for myself because I need to finished up the remaining fried har Mee from the previous day.

11.14 am - he ate these two food items for both his lunch and dinner. The siew yuk rice has peanuts included in the container. The watercress ribs soup has red dates, watercress and meat in it, a bit more ingredients.

Fatt Kee roast duck and chicken rice shop at Sri Petaling with their own plastic bag with their shop name printed on it.

Used allday promo code to get MYR 7 off. I have used up all 12 free delivery so this time the delivery fee is about MYR 4.50 so the MYR 7 off covered the delivery fee.

Fish Paste Wanton Skin

On Sunday 26.jun.22, went to Taman Desa to buy food and pick up a Foodpanda order. Ordered Foodpanda delivery from Canton Kitchen for the Elderlies' dinner to be delivered directly to them.

*** Breakfast ***

8.36 am - shared breakfast of fish paste wanton skins mihun soup MYR 8 bought from Mountain Hill eatery on the previous day. There are 5 wantons that have wanton skins made from fish paste and a few slices of fish cake. The broth is very umami, a bit on the salty side for me but I think the elderlies may like it so will buy for them to try.

*** Pork Croquettes ***

12.51 noon - picked up this pork Croquettes noodles from Classic Taiwan Braised Pork Rice eatery in Taman Desa because need one more pickup order to get 240 Foodpanda points.

I like that they include a piece of braised tofu and one whole braised egg with the pork Croquettes noodles. This dish is very flavourful so I ate the tofu and some noodles. The egg, half pork Croquettes and remaining noodles are kept in the fridge for the next day.

According to this link:

"If you're really into technical terminology, the difference is that croquettes typically use breadcrumbs and patties typically use flour. A croquette mixture is flakier and lighter than a patty mixture."

Cross section of the pork Croquettes. I like the taste because it is similar to the pork patties my mother used to make for us to eat when we were young. It has a nice onion taste.

I only need to pay MYR 5.18 nett after deducting the pickup discount and using a MYR 6 discount voucher that was given automatically when Foodpanda took a very long time, like about an hour to deliver the cakes from YuBake on Tuesday.

*** Tuck Tuck Tei ***

*** Diy Sandwich ***

3.23 pm - want to use up all the siew yuk chili dip but the siew yuk is already very flavourful and doesn't need the chili dip so I made two open faced sandwich. Put some of the flavourful noodles on top of two slices of bread. Add half a braised tofu and pour all the siew yuk chili dip onto the tofu on both slices of bread. Very nice to eat due to the bread helps to tone down the taste of that very flavourful noodles and tofu.

*** Canton Kitchen ***

4.20 pm - Dinner for the Elderlies from Canton Kitchen:
1. Papaya ribs soup MYR 21.25
2. Salted fish pork belly dish MYR 18.70
