The Difference In Pricing Between Two Shops

THE DIFFERENCE.... Two different shops, more or less the same food and a big difference in pricing.  The first shop we went a couple of weeks ago was in town, famous for their fried fish to be eaten with porridge.  We ordered 3 dishes for 4 of us and the price was alarmingly high considering the dishes had nothing to shout about.  

Then few days ago we went to another shop in Falim, called Wong Zheng, we ordered 3 dishes too, almost the same as the one mentioned above.  The food here is much nicer and the price is reasonable too.  Summary:  we compared the food and the price and came to a conclusion that we would not be going back to the first shop but will continue to frequent the second.  LOL.... I guess Ipohians are like that... where food is nice and reasonable, the shop will flourish and on the other hand, if the food is so-so but expensive, we might not go there anymore.  

First shop.... 


Fried fish with bitter gourd.... 
Braised yam... 
The presentation here might be nicer than the second shop 
but taste wise, it is still lacking.... 
Fried minced pork....
And the bill came to RM90 for these 3 dishes.... 

Now the second shop dishes are as follows:
Fried fish with assam sauce.... 
Braised Yam and this is much more tastier.... 
Salted Egg with baby french beans and lotus.... 
For these three dishes, the bill came to Rm67...
That's the difference between the first and the second....
LOL.. just my opinion....
Today is Friday, have a nice weekend!!

  1. Yes, some places, their knives are very very sharp and the food is not necessarily nicer. If very very nice, I do not mind - value for money. If not, I will never ever go back again!!!

  5. Are the fish dishes using different type of fish? Or same type? If different type then cannot compare cos some type of fish is more expensive than other type.

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

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

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
