It was Friday night. Our date night. We have since stopped visiting my favorite place. I feel kind of sad. Not for me but for the restaurant. The last time we were there, I didn't enjoy the food. I guess it is tough to be consistent when the chef can't be there 100% of the time.
We went up to our go-to Japanese restaurant but sadly they were closed due to an unscheduled water disruption. So how? My partner suggested we go to Ikano Power Center and see what was available.
At the last minute, he said hey, shall we have Hokkien Mee? Well, why not? I'm all for Hokkien Mee and our favorite is Tiong Hokkien Mee@Damansara Uptown (there is another Hokkien mee joint a little further up but we don't like that one. The food is super oily and not to our taste).
I was looking forwards to the noodles. The last time I had Hokkien Mee was at my family gathering when my parents were here.
|This was at my brother's house, tapau-ed by another brother.
This Hokkien Mee was from the oily place.
Tiong Hokkien Mee used to operate in the evenings at Dim Sum Kitchen (which has since closed down and now replaced by Patissez) and not long after, occupied the shop lot a few doors away.
It's quite popular but not as popular as that oily place. We ordered the Hokkien Meehoon and Hokkien Koay Teow.
The Hokkien Meehoon was served very quickly. This is also as considered fast food, no?
Then came the Hokkien Koay Teow came shortly after. Mmmm...I enjoyed my noodles, with preference leaning towards the koay teow.
Next time it should be meehoon for him and koay teow for her. No need to share share hee..hee...hee...
And to make our dinner more balanced, we also ordered a plate of greens.
Our simple kailan stir fried with garlic. Loved it.
For drinks, we had barley.
The bill came to only RM29.00, our cheapest dinner yet. I think we should do this more often.
