Warm Lunch

Today is a cold day. Rained all morning and there wasn’t much sun the last few days. So I was craving for hot soup lunch and Thank God my friend called me for lunch! She was craving for hot soup lunch too! Hahaha!

So my friend suggested to go to Kopitiam, Taipan USJ 10.

We had “Teh Si”.This cost RM2.40. I drank with no sugar at first to taste. Then I added a sachet of sugar in for some sweetness.

We both ordered the Shredded Chicken Koay Teow.This bowl of noodles cost RM4.20. It was a warming meal. The soup was sweet I believed they cooked the chicken in it too, yet it wasn't oily. I wonder if it is the MSG they put in. For a cold day, this was a really refreshing meal.

Ordered a Mango Prawn too.This cost RM6.90. The presentation is a wow! I like how they decorated with the mango sauce. The whole fried thing was delicious except the mangoes inside was too ripe. My friend and I suspected they used ripe mangoes to wrap it in the roll and then when they fry it, it became too cooked. Could it be?

The total bill came to RM21.20 inclusive of service tax, but no government tax. Wonder why. Of course RM10.00 a meal is a tad too expensive, I can never resist anything with mango hehee or even cheese! But if we didn't order the mango prawn it would of been RM7.00. Oh well...

Overall I had a good warm lunch. Thanks to my friend.

Tekkaus said...

The bowl of noodle looks simple but I'm sure it yummy right! The most important thing is, it is warm or hot! :P

pikey said...

Bengbeng said...

u got to eat, u got to eat... let us not count ringgit and sen. but comparatively food is cheaper here in Sibu than KL

wenn said...

Satisfied with good food, price doesn't matter..

reanaclaire said...

Faisal Admar said...

kinda expensive lunch you had :P
hehe you might think i'm stingy :P

but i have to save a lot of money for my new house, car loan settlement and also room decoration.

hehe.

so if i could save up a lot during ramadhan, i would! :D

but the mango prawn is very tempting :P

Ayie said...

for a different eating experience, i think it's ok what you had. I agree with the mango, it would have been better if it's not too ripe.

ladyviral said...

Tekkaus : Yes it is cold... Maggi Mee for breakfast. Heavy breakfast. Maggi Mee with an egg also yummy!

ladyviral said...

fufu : RM1.50 nia?! Waaa so cheap! But then hor, this kopitiam is those commercialized like type like those Old Town, Pappa Rich.

ladyviral said...

Tekkaus : Yea it is haha... I think if I go to a normal kopitiam, it would be cheap lah. Everything in KL is expensive...

Yea it was yummy, especially on such a cold day! Mango prawn nothing to shout about, but I think because in KL everything is like that now =x.

ladyviral said...

Pikey : You're right! As long as I enjoyed it :).

ladyviral said...

BengBeng : Well, that is KL... of course there are cheaper food, but eventually a lot of people rather go to those commercialized places now so they boom very fast.

ladyviral said...

wenn : You're right, wenn... satisfaction is much more of a value compared to price tag.

ladyviral said...

reanaclaire : I think you can find them most at those commercilaized type of "Kopitiam". The stripes are mango sauce... But I wonder how they made that or is there any that comes in a bottle.

ladyviral said...

Faisal : To be honest, I am stingy too! I need every cents I earn. But guess if it is once in a while, it is ok. Not everyday, I might burn myself from the fire in the pocket :P.

Lucky you read this only after buka puasa. Else I would be mean to do this to you, tempting you. hehe.

ladyviral said...

Ayie : You're saying from experience of reading my food choices here right? :P

Ah yes, it would of been a lot more tastier if it was not over ripe. Over ripen mnago taste slightly weird :P.

Life Ramblings said...

it's been raining cats and dogs here almost everyday. :(

Life Ramblings said...

oh my, the teh C is so pricey in KL. the price is almost equivalent to a bowl of noodles in Penang or Kedah.

Life Ramblings said...

the mango prawn sure looks scrumptious but I agree with u, the taste would definitely have been more delicious if not for the overiped mango.

ladyviral said...

Life Ramblings : Yea it have been raining everyday here too! Except yesterday... was sunny.

yea things in KL is expensive... only thing not expensive is our salaries >.<;

The mango prawn? Yes it does! It was delicious of course the overiped mango kinda gave it a weird taste. But the rest was good :).

sunnymama said...
