Mandarin Oranges

Bought a box of Mandarin Oranges from Aeon Supermarket. Less than one month to CNY!

28 honey mandarin oranges (medium size) for MYR 19.88 nett. It is succulent and tastes sweet with a bit of sourness but the membrane is a bit on the thick side. Quite ok.

Agar agar

Size comparison.

When I was in kindergarten, I like to eat red agar-agar (jelly from algae) that looked like the above with rose syrup flavour so when I saw this, I was all set to relive my youth but it was not meant to be, the red agar agar above has pandan flavour instead of rose syrup but the texture is similar, firm but not hard but is a bit too sweet for me. Costs MYR 1.50 nett. My friend will buy it for me to give me a treat whenever she goes to the eatery in the morning for breakfast.

WG Same Price

Back in August 2015, we ordered this Fish Thai Laksa at MYR 12.90++ (5% service charge and 6% GST = MYR 14.36 nett)  at Old Siam eatery, One Utama and the price is still the same when I ate this a few days ago.

Those are all the fish cubes from the fish curry. The curry is creamy but I find it a bit too salty and would prefer to be less salty.

Bill is MYR 72.80 for  4 pax.

Mall Food

9 am breakfast for two - ala carte fish fillet burger without the tartar sauce (MYR 7.50 nett). McSavers Breakfast Mix and Match Special Price Set at MYR 5.99 nett - I selected Chicken Ham Egg Wrap (Normal Price is MYR 4.80 nett) and Cakoi (Youtiao - Normal Price is MYR 2.50 nett).

The Breakfast Wrap Chicken Roll is tasty despite being a bit on the salty end. I like the taste of the gooey melted cheese with the egg in the wrap.

So convenient now that they accept card payment.

12 noon - lunch for two. Ordered the combo to share - 1 noodle, 1 delight item and 1 drink for only MYR 18.90 nett. Prawn Mee - Normal price is MYR 10.90 nett. Sotong KangKung - Normal Price is MYR 9.90 nett and Hot Cocoa drink - Normal price is MYR 5.50 nett so quite a significant saving by ordering the combo. Next time I am going to request for the sotong kangkung sauce to be served separately because they put in too much sauce.

Two bowls of my favourite chendul at MYR 6.50 nett each with an extra bowl of shaved ice (foc).

Lunch for 2 pax at MYR 31.90 nett.

WG Duck Egg CKT

Penang Duck Egg CKT in KL - MYR 13.50 nett. Whenever I miss the KTG Penang CKT, I can eat this one now. It is almost as tasty despite having only 2 prawns as compared to the 5 prawns in KTG Penang CKT and cost MYR 1.50 nett more. I prefer this than the noodle in yesterday's post.

I bought the above CKT from Secret Penang Cafe stall in Lot 10 Hutong food court.

Then I bought this Macau Pork Chop Bun - MYR 13.90 nett and requested for them to omit the butter on the bun as takeaway for my spouse. It is best eaten on the spot as the bun turned hard when cold.

The above bun is bought from this Porco Macau Pork Chop Bun stall in Lot 10 Hutong Food Court. Tai Lei Loi Kei Macau Pork Chop Bun is no longer available here but this Porco Macau is just as delicious.

"Today wastage is tomorrow's shortage" so please eat and finish all our food. Please take your leftovers home for your next meal.

All under 1 roof.

WG Thai Hou Sek

I have seen this eatery at One Utama but have never eaten there so when it opened a branch in Midvalley Mall at LG (in the previous place where McD was), my friend and I went there for lunch.

Siu Yuk (Roast Pork) Fried Rice - MYR 22 nett. The portion of rice is not that big so I suspect it may not be enough for big eaters.

My order - Pad Thai Seafood - MYR 22 nett. It is more expensive than the Pad Thai set lunch (MYR 18.40 nett) that I ate at Mhera-33 a few weeks ago. Although that set lunch included soup, drink and dessert, it does not have any meat in the pad thai whereas this pad thai has 3 prawns, a lot of squid and 3 slices of pork belly bacon so it is up to you to decide which one is more worth it.

The prawns have a firm texture and seemed fresh but have a slight tap-water-taste to it. I would describe the tap-water-taste as a slight chlorine taste so while this pad thai is tasty, the prawns would deter me from ordering it again.

Total Bill for 2 pax = MYR 44 nett.

The interior is nicely decorated.

Quite a popular place during lunch time. Perhaps it is because it just opened a few weeks ago.

WG Birthday Lunch

Steamed Red Tilapia with ginger paste - MYR 18+ (6% GST = MYR 19.10 nett). This Tilapia fish did not have the earthy taste.

Beancurd (Tofu) served in a hot plate lined with eggs - MYR 13+ (MYR 13.80 nett) for a small portion. This is a simple but tasty dish.

Half a chicken - MYR 38+ (MYR 40.30 nett). It included a few types of mushrooms and one whole clove of garlic that caused my friend to remark that the gravy tasted like bak kut teh due to the garlic taste. Don't think we will order this again because we don't feel that the taste is special enough to warrant the price.  

Stir Fried Long Bean with Roast Pork (small) - MYR 14+ (MYR 14.85 nett). This is a common but favourite dish of many people due to the roast pork.

Mixed Vegetables Curry in Claypot (medium) - MYR 21+ (MYR 22.25 nett). My friend put in a separate order of bean curd sheets to add to the curry. This curry is the reason Hou Keng restaurant was chosen to celebrate the birthday of a friend who loves to eat it.

A place of deep fried crispy bean curd sheets to be added to the curry - MYR 5+ (MYR 5.30 nett).

Total Bill is MYR 133.05 nett for 6 pax but the birthday star does not need to pay so it is around MYR 26.60 each for 5 pax. Not too expensive for a hearty lunch.
