Been having lunch at this coffee shop a couple times now. Apparently, it’s famous for it’s Hainan Lor Mee, but every time I go there, I’ll have the steamed dishes set. It’s from a stall called ‘Wang Yee Steamed Rice’, and it sells a few different type of dishes. Every dished is steamed, hence, less oil, a little healthier. At least I hope so. 😛
My favourite set is the Steamed Black Pepper Chicken set. The set comes with a bowl of steamed rice and a bowl of soup. When I first heard the name of this dish, Steamed Black Pepper Chicken, I thought it would be a dish with strong black pepper taste and smell, but I was proven wrong. It’s actually really yummy. There’s none of the overwhelming taste of black pepper where almost every other ‘black pepper related food’ that I’ve tried have. The portion is just nice for one person. This set cost RM 7.
Of course, sometimes, you can order another dish à la carte at RM 5.50 if you want varieties for your lunch. Even better if you go with a friend and each order a set, then you can have 2 dishes to share among the two of you. Last weekend, I ordered the à la carte Steamed Fish to share with my mum, besides my usual black pepper chicken set. The fish is surprisingly fresh. A little bland compared to some of the steamed fish dishes that I’ve tried before elsewhere. So whenever I want something with a little more taste, I’ll usually order the Steamed ‘Otak-otak’ (which I forgot to take a picture of).
Definitely won’t get bored of this place anytime soon. Cheap, nice and healthy (sort of). Haha!
