I went to the Pacific Plaza food court with a friend for lunch.
I was craving for some ‘kueh’ (Malay dessert) and Gee! Taste Good is just the place for it.
The layer cake (kueh lapis) is $1 per piece. I know how tedious the recipe is and it’s not feasible for me to make a whole tray as the rest of my family does not like dessert that much. So, $1 per piece is just right for me.
I also bought another piece of kueh which is cassava cake topped with coconut, also $1 per piece. The cassava layer is not as fibrous as I have in mind. I think it is made with cassava flour and not with grated cassava. Anyhow, the kueh is good, not too sweet and with a slight chewiness and a hint of saltiness.
Since it was already lunch time, I also ordered a plate of Indonesian style fried kuey teow. The rice noodle turned out to be different from the Malaysian style wide flat noodle. These are more like the Vietnamese style rice noodle. The noodle was not spicy except for the sambal on the side. It was a big serving for $6.75 as I could not finish it and have the remaining packed to go.
This is a cash only place.
My friend ordered from the above Vegetarian Stall.
She had a bowl of “Loh Hon Jai” noodle soup for just $6.50. It came in a large bowl with carrots, bok choy, lotus root, wood ears and lily flowers. It was very fragrant of sesame oil when she brought it to the table.
The service was slow for the vegetarian stall as it was manned by only 1 person. I had done with my eating before she got her order.
