KL 2017 Happy Yummy Vegetarian

My father and I went out for a vegetarian dinner, unintentionally. I wanted to go somewhere new and my dad drove to a nearby strip mall that he has never been to before.

There are only two restaurants here; an Indian restaurant selling tandoori chicken which my father does not really like and this vegetarian restaurant. So, we settled with the vegetarian restaurant.

The restaurant was empty when we arrived.

I ordered a vegetarian claypot chicken rice. It has a strong sweet aroma of five spice powder. It was ok but lack of the satisfaction from the real deal.

My father had fried rice with vegetarian satay. The texture of the satay is more like ground meat.

We shared a bowl of bubur cha-cha for dessert. The purple sweet potatoes landed the sweet soap with a purplish hue.

The meal came to about CAD10.

We went to this Soup Paradise which has an enticing Chinese name. My father told me the Chinese name literary means soup fit for the king.

We ordered two bowls of double boiled (or steamed) soup. The first one is lotus root and pork bones soup. There is black beans in it too. This was flavourful.

KL 2017 Oriental Cravings

I met up with 2 of my classmates in 1Utama for lunch. I had met one of them during the APGS reunion dinner. The other one, I have not seen for 36 years. She is my primary and secondary school classmate. We were in the same high school but different class.

We had lunch at Oriental Cravings because I requested local food. Here is what we shared. The above is Claypot “Lo Shee Fun” which is a short rice noodle that resembles the shape of the tail of a mouse. The raw egg adds creaminess to the noodles. This was very tasty. This is RM14.90 (about CAD4.50).

Next is a dish that was recommended by the server. It is fried taro/yam cake with eggs and long beans. This is RM15.90 (about CAD4.80).

img_2629

Another local dish we tried is Curry Laksa with a combination of oily noodle and vermicelli.

img_2635

The selling point of the curry laksa here is they served roasted pork in it. This is RM18.90 (about CAD5.75).

img_2630

We also ordered the daily special which is an Indonesian style rice with fried chicken.  We certainly ordered too much food.

We had barley bean curd sheet sweet soup as our drink cum dessert. We had a long lunch catching up for the lost time.

My friends, thank you for finding time to meet me and buying lunch. I appreciate our reunion very much and will cherish it forever.
