Teochiew Food For Thursday Ladies

I realized my handphone was missing when I wanted to call my girl around 6pm... oh dear, where did I put it??? Knowing me, either I left it in the office or I dropped it in my own car... I made a call to my own hp, nope, not in the car...

Since it is Ladies' night for dinner, I suggested to my friends that I would take them to my office to retrieve my hp and then adjourned for dinner straight after that... I dare not go up to my office alone.. it was dark and raining too... Thank goodness my iPhone was in my drawer...phew......

By then, it was already 7.30pm... time to fill our stomach with food..... and I took my friends here for our dinner... Teochiew Restaurant!
 A special dish in this Teochiew Restaurant is 
Steamed Pumpkin!
It was steaming hot when served..... BEST!
Inside the pumpkin are small chunky ribs...
we ordered steamed eggs with minced meat....
not sure this is purely teochiew or not... :)
But I know this one is...
Claypot vegetables... a bit sourish, a bit spicy...
I like it!
For the three of us, the food was just beautiful!  I mean .. just Enough...
Teochiew Restaurant is an open air concept place.. 
Popular is their Teochiew Steamboat too...
Heard that the soup is kind of sourish.. something different...
By the time we left the place, all the tables were occupied...
Okay, as for the price... it was fantastic!
My friends guessed that it was around RM60 ...
But they were wrong... the food only cost RM41.00!!
hmmm...what more can I say....   :)
