Wow.... can't believe that I had neglected my food blog for quite sometime. This year is really a hectic year for me. There are so many things to do one after another. Since today is a quiet afternoon, I decided to updated some posts. ^o^
During one outing, we found one place to have some nice and affordable chu char. It is located just a few steps away from The Goddess of Mercy Temple (Kwang Yin Temple).
Kedai Makan Fok Kee
This is the outlook of the shops and also the menu that hang inside the shop.
While we were seated one uncle approach us to write our order. We were browsing through the menu on the wall and also asked the person to recommend us some dishes. End up we order:
At first in our mind, we thought that it is just an ordinary beancurd soup that we usually ordered with salted vegetables. But this turn out to be like the "Foo chow" styles of sea cucumber soup (omit sea cucumber) with black vinegar that we tasted in Sarawak.
It's been quite a long time that we did not tasted this kind of soup. I personally quite enjoy it very much. The black vinegar is in a separate bowl. As some people don't take black vinegar. I like to add it with the soup. Although inside the soup just the basic stuff like bean curd, mushrooms, pork mince and eggs. But it is one of the comfort foods for me. ^o^
The pork was very tender after cooking in the claypot for some time. Loves the way that the chef add in coriander leaves into the claypot dark soya sauce. As it make the whole dishes more flavours. But it also depends whether you love coriander leaves or not. As for my family we love it very much. Even my gal loves the smell of it. (which we find quite awkward as most children hate the smell)
Stir fry kai lan with fish cakes
Steam fish with the house sauce
This was suggested by the person who took our order. He told us that it is not very spicy but end up, my gal cannot take it. Most of these went into our tummy. The fish is very fresh. The sauces is quite nice. A fine combination of sourness and spiciness. Actually if you can take spicy foods, this is consider not very spicy. ^0^
If you want to enjoy some "chu char", this is another place that can consider. The price is quite reasonable.
