After exploring The Starling, I suggested to my partner that we should have dinner at Kim Zen Restaurant (non-halal).
This place is located on the same floor as Jaya Grocer and it has a kopitiam type of setting. You place your orders by filling up an order chit. Yes, I like that.
As usual, you will find me prepping my garlic, chili and soya sauce.
We had a herbal drink each. With the benefit of hindsight, we could have shared just one drink.
It was quite sweet with bitter undertones. I am not very familiar with herbal drinks.
We ordered one soup each, then we exchanged after consuming half. Share and share alike 😍
The minced meat with salted egg was tasty. There's lots of flavors there and the meat was tender.
The chicken dish was alright. I liked the black fungus and lilybuds.
Our serving of greens was OK. I prefer vegetables stir fried with garlic and salt rather than blanched like this. The only other choice was lettuce, I think.
Overall, I enjoyed our dinner. But I am somewhat sensitive when eating out. At some places, I am fine but at others, I will feel weak and drained either after the meal or the following day. Unfortunately, this happened when I woke up the next day. But that's just me, other people may not experience the same thing.
