Now, I have sat with my partner maybe once or twice at the dining table in recent times, he enjoying his Hokkien Mee/Wat Tan Hor and me watching, and yet there was no trigger response in me.
I can see his noodles, I can smell it and I can remember how it tastes and yet, I had no feelings towards the noodles. Weird, huh? But since I am fulfilling my wager to eat carbs, that is what I shall do and let's see if a Wat Tan Hor can excite me (again).
I went to my favorite place at A Foodie's Nest (The Starling, where else?) - Hotpot 1. It seems like forever since I have eaten here.
Ah! See that? I went for the Cantonese Kuey Teow (Seafood) which cost an extra RM10.00 compared to the Seafish Slice option.
Before long my beeper beeped and I went to collect my lunch.
There were a few slices of fish, some pork/chicken, one small prawn and a piece of squid. I suspect I paid extra RM10.00 just for the prawn and squid and if there is a next time, I would save my money.
The gravy was thin, perhaps due to not enough cornstarch slurry. So it was more like a soup rather than thick gravy.
I was given a bowl and I opted not to have the candle lit under the claypot. The food was already super piping hot when served.
There was a good measure of wok hei and the fish slices were fresh, so were the single prawn and small piece of squid. Flavors were good and the portion size was very generous. Yes, I enjoyed this gravy koay teow more than I enjoyed yesterday's curry mee.
What shall I eat next? Let's see how it goes tomorrow.
