Lunch At Swee Garden, Nibong Tebal

AFTER A COUPLE OF DAYS REST, we went back to Ipoh.  On the way back, we stopped for lunch at Nibong Tebal.  Using Waze and a couple of wrong turns, we managed to get to Swee Garden restaurant.  By then it was lunch time and the place was full with patrons.

We sat down with one lady and a young man, they were almost going to finish their meal.  In the midst of waiting, I struck up a conversation with the lady, starting with where they were from.... and to my amazement, the lady was so friendly or should I say, chatty.... she told us a lot about herself and the son who was sitting beside her.  The son was quiet but the mother was so dynamite speaking... LOL... I really never met such a lady before and it was like talking to old friends after just like fifteen minutes or so.  During that short time, I have know a lot about her.... not vice versa... anyway, all I can say is that she is the type of lady who makes you feel at home.... 

We opted for wanton noodles instead of rice....
Sweet potato leaves with less spicy sauce....
The steamed fish slices were nicely done...
I noticed that this dish was on the table, ordered by the lady earlier...
And it looked kind of nice... yes, it was a good choice...
And the bill came to around RM50 plus for the 3 dishes...

  1. The lady makes me think of you - so easy to get along with! Noodles look good and the steamed fish probably explains the higher than usual bill - never cheap, if we opt for fish at a restaurant!

  6. The most famous food in Nibong Tebal is the Roast Pork Knuckles in a coffee shop that has the longest queue. So yummy and cheap.
