Char Siew Siew Kai chicken rice@Lucky Restaurant, Seksyen 17 PJ

image

The chicken rice stall on this corner has a much lesser crowd than its rival on the corner coffee shop on the next block but honestly, the chicken rice from this stall did not lose too far off from the other.

Char siew and roast chicken only cost RM5 and the portion was rather big. The meats were quite good, luckily they gave me more lean parts.

This small bowl of salted vegs soup (kiam chai) cost RM2. It was quite good to open up the tastebuds. Spicy, salty, and vegs were nicely softened.

A worthy try for one who is on a tight budget, short lunch break and not in a mood to queue up.

Thai lunch@I’m Spicy, Sekyen 17, PJ

I always passed by this restaurant whenever I have lunch at Kanna Curry (same row of shophouses) but never had an opportunity to try it until one fine day, my friends had a thai craving on a rainy day, we decided to give it a try.

My thai fried kueh teow was actually really good. Fried with full of wok hei and they were rather sincere with the beef slices and tofu. The plate looked quite big but I was able to finish the entire plate….wiped clean. Oops. Rn 13.20 (including tax and 1 drink which tasted like cough mixture).

My friend ordered the Phad Thai which looked delicious as well. She finished the entire plate…im guessing delicious too!

Thai fried rice looked rather disappointing though. Thumbs up for presentation,  making the rice heart shaped lol. The sweetened sauce coated fried pork slices were a little too hard. The sambal given tasted better than the dish and became the item that made their dish tasted better. Sadly, they charged RM1 for the sambal sauce! Grrrrrr!

Little piggy giving a cute face, asking money from us. We spent about RM 13.20 each. All in all, the food was quite good but we did get thirsty later. We suspected the Aji dose added might be a bit too much.

What was outrageous was the fact they charged us RM 1.00 for each small glass of water. I’ve always been one of those people who are against restaurants charging for water when the cost is negligable.

The fact they charged us for water and sambal did deter us from our motivation to make our 2nd trip here, even though the food we had was quite good. I hope they would re-consider waving these extra charges to give the patrons a full sense of fulfillment dining here.
