I wanted to try Kam Kee Cafe @ The Starling for the longest time but somehow they are always crowded whenever I got there. It seems to be a rather popular place for the breakfast and brunch crowd.
These days with the number of Covid-19 infections soaring above 20,000 plus cases daily, I am adopting a very cautious approach. I have stopped dining out. I refer to either tapau or order delivery.
So last Saturday I decided to order via Grabfood self-pick up to take advantage of the PICKUP20 discount.
I have not been going out much to the mall (primarily due to my bad back which has since recovered after 6 weeks) and noted some new developments.
The space vacated by Nicsmann By Lewre has been taken up.
I made my way to Kam Kee Cafe to pick up my orders. Since I was buying lunch, I might as well pick up something for dinner too. I got me the Sweet & Sour Pork with Pineapple Rice and Hong Kong Fried Hor Fun with Beef Slices.
Back at the office I had the sweet & sour pork for lunch.
I know it looks pathetic (in terms of presentation and portion size) but it was actually quite good though they could be a bit more generous with the amount of meat. The sweet & sour sauce had a good balance of sweet, sour and (not too) salty. Yup, definitely can get it much cheaper with bigger portions at the chap fan stall. Obviously.
Later in the day, I had my early dinner (since my partner and I have stopped dining out).
Fried koay teow/hor fun is always my favorite when it comes to fried noodles. This came with chili oil.
Although I ate the beef hor fun cold, it still tasted really good. And before I asked "where is the beef?", I found that they were all underneath the noodles.
Lots of tender beef slices and I enjoyed this Hong Kong Fried Hor Fun with Beef Slices to the max. The last time I had this dish was at Ming Chai Kee.
No doubt it was pricey, but hey, you want cheap you sendiri masak lah! Which brings us to my rather sad attempt at fried beef noodles.
This was because I wanted to finally open the packet of konjac noodles that I bought on a whim last year. More on that later on.
Lunch some days ago was again from The Naked Lunchbox.
There were pine nuts, mushrooms and raisins in the rice which was quite strong with tomato paste. So if you dislike tomato paste, you won't like this rice. The chicken was moist and tasted quite good in spite of looking so pale.
