The 2nd Lunch

After the 5-course meal at Gunther's, Keropok Man & Momo, Camemberu, Recent Runes, Black Tie White Lie and this still hungry cow took a short walk down the street for more food.

I don't know about the rest, but I couldn't quite feel the food that we just had at Gunther's. Brain was sending messages that read: Stomach feels empty. Need more food. I have always preferred substantial (read filling) food in hearty (read healthy) portions. No offence but unless it is a 30-course thing at a fine-dining restaurant, it can't be called a real meal. Not even lunch.

So it was with much glee that the few of us wanted mee pok, beef noodles.... we settled on chicken rice.

1/2 Roast Chicken ($12) and 1/2 Steamed Chicken ($12).

The all important (and filling) chicken rice's Rice. Lol.

The fibre and sambal-laden Sweet Potato Leaves ($8).

This Hainanese Claypot Mutton ($15) was sure dark, sticky and surprisingly non-muttony! Besides meat there were other parts of the animal. I think I had a piece of tribe.

Camemberu and Black Tie White Lie (some say Hairy Berry) got excited when they spotted Hokkien Mee ($8? Forgot the exact amount.) on the menu but alas. It wasn't the dark KL-style Hokkien Mee they were hoping for. This one here had a very strong taste of alkaline.

2nd lunch ended at about 4pm. By then, my stomach was belly happy and I was looking forward to a friend's birthday celebrations later that evening.

Thank God for affordable, easily available and quite delicious street food...and greedy hungry friends.

I passed by this eating house recently and was wondering if their chicken rice was good. Maybe should try one day.

Camemberu: I like the tripe too! :D

Piccolo: Not big. But got 4 stomachs. Lol.

Travelerfolio: The chicken rice is decent though the rice a little clumpy.

The transparent phone sounds cool!

evan 이벤젤린: Yup yup. Roast chicken was good. Somehow, this meal felt extremely satisfying!
