WG Upgraded Look

Value Set Lunch at SoloMen with 4 choices of Ramen, 5 choices of side dish: 1) Gyoza 2) Mini Octopus 3) Salad 4) Sliced scallops 5) Fried Rice and  refillable green tea (Hot or Cold).

My lunch order: Shoyu Ramen (MYR 16.90 nett) with Gyoza and cold green tea. Good value for money. Of course I had to keep half for my dinner.

The bowl has 2 indentations for the chopsticks to rest on as shown above.

Solomen has improved on its exterior by changing its glass door to a wooden sliding door and putting up a Noren (暖簾) which is a traditional Japanese fabric divider hung in doorways. Wooden lattice has also been installed outside the glass walls as a privacy screen.

Bill for 3 pax: MYR 60.60 nett.

A closer look at the Noren and the wooden lattice.

I ordered the same lunch set - Shoyu Ramen (MYR 16.90 nett) on another visit but with hot tea and scallop side dish instead.

I believe these are the "skirt" of the scallops marinated in vinegar and sesame sauce. The slices are thin but quite tough to chew so I don't think I will order this side dish again. I will order the Gyoza side dish again next time or try the fried rice side dish.

Total bill for 4 pax: MYR 73.60 nett.

Vegetarian Lunch Box

My co-workers have been ordering vegetarian lunch boxes from Green Meadow in SS2 on a regular basis so they have their own reusable lunch multi compartment containers like the above. They told me that the food is tasty so I went to the shop to try it out.

I tasted the food and can vouch for them that "Less oil, salt and sugar" is true.

My lunch order: Red Yeast Mee Sua at MYR 15.55 nett and Pumpkin sweet corn sweet potatoes dessert at MYR 4 nett.

The Red Yeast Mee Sua has lots of vege and mushrooms in it. It is so tasty that I ended up drinking all the broth. The pumpkin dessert is not sweet at all and the staff informed us that we can request for it to be sweeter which we feel is not necessary.

My friend's set meal at MYR 16.60 nett with brown rice and a few side dishes that she chose.

Total bill for 2 pax: MYR 40.10 nett. This is the place to go when we want to eat lots of vegetables for lunch.

Steamed Dumplings

Found an eatery in Kuchai Entrepreneur Park that sells dumplings so went to try it out. Ordered a plate of chives dumplings at MYR 13.90 nett.

Can see the chives in the dumplings. I like the taste of the dumplings although I think they could be less salty.

There are 7 different types of fillings: 1. prawns, pork and cloud ears fungus 2. Beef and spring onions 3. celery and pork. I think I will try them all because I like to eat dumplings.

4. corns and pork 5. beans and pork 6. chives and pork 7. spring onions, beancurd and pepper

We also ordered a bowl of prawns wanton in soup at MYR 16.90 nett but we won't be ordering this again because we do not like the taste of the oil used for the soup. The taste is similar to a soup cooked with duck fat that I drank once before.

Shop front.

Jolly Jumbo Bears

Fancy eating one?
Update: This is a giant gummy bear - gelatin-based candies / soft sugar jelly sweets. I don't even know how many children it takes to eat one.
