No More So Called Economical Food

WOKE UP LATE THIS MORNING.... So ended up having oats as breakfast and for lunch, I went to Farlim with two of my friends.  We had something really simple, no frills and fancies.  Supposedly to be very "economical" and they are actually called "economy food" during my younger days, but... alas, nothing is economical anymore these days.  Nevertheless, I still yearn for this type of food, it brings back good old memories from the younger days!

This shop is situated in Farlim, Menglembu, half an hour away from my house and it only opens at 11am for brunch and lunch.  Thanks to my friend, she just gave me the name of the shop, it is called A1 Phang Leng and the address is Laluan Perusahaan Menglembu 2, Kawasan Perusahaan Menglembu.... and we ordered these for our eating pleasure. :)

Patrons at noon... 
A plate of vegetarian noodles... RM2.20 each...
We ordered 2 plates....
7 pieces of crispy stuff to share..... 
3 bowls of Red beans sweet desserts... 
A bowl of peanuts porridge.... 
Freshly fried sesame balls.... RM1.20 for each...
All in all, our bill came to RM21.60... 
For this amount, each person is RM7... 
No more so-called economical food, right!  :)

  1. Economy fast food would refer to the chap fan/mixed rice not "a la carte". Here, usually it is 1 meat 2 vegetables, RM3.50. Quite ok, still quite economical.

  2. For all those food, RM7 is still economical imho because you have to compare the price relative to the price of other food now. Cannot compare to the price of food ten years ago. I like the simple bee hoon and red bean soup.

    2. that means there is no food you can absolutely call keng chai anymore la since if relative then this food is still at the cheapest and lowest rung. even food you cook at home are also expensive if you use quality ingredients.

  4. Interesting meal. I like it. Sigh! Now economy rice cost RM5 for 2 vegetables and 1 meat in some place. Hard to get lower than RM5 unless 2 or 3 veggie dishes.

    1. Now I think eating a plate of chap farn is cheaper than having a bowl of noodles...

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch
