Two missed events over the weekend:
Free invites for two to the Grand Premier of Peter Pan The Musical with a chance to mingle with the cast, and on top of that free entry to the Sunway Lagoon Nite park.
The Blogger SHAGS gathering at the Hill. SHAGS actually stands for – “Socialize. Harmonize. Actualize. Glamourize. Spiritualize” , no funny ideas please!
Such is life of a mommy :D But it’s all good!
Anyway, the hubby and I made our way to Malacca on Sunday for a day trip. It wasn’t for recreational purposes but rather a little something that the hubby’s working on (and very hard I might add that makes me love him a little more!) for the sake of our baby’s future.
Well despite it not being a leisurely trip that still didn’t stop us from hitting Jonker Street for some yummy lunch on a gloomy Monday!
Google Hoe Kee Chicken Rice and you’ll find tons of reviews on this restaurant. People actually queue up just to dine here! The few times that we were in Jonker Street, we had to shrug off the idea of Hoe Kee because rice balls or no balls, I am most definitely NOT a fan of queuing under the blazing hot sun.
Zoom in close and you’ll realize some people who would!
By luck, we got there before the lunch crowd and managed to get a seat. The menu is pretty straight forward – chicken rice balls / chicken (like duh) / assam fish and cabbage, literally takes you 5 seconds and less to decide.
And now we wait….
We decided to go with almost everything on the menu minus the cabbage
Oh look at all that glorious food
See the fan pointing at me, the aunty was kind enough to move the fan to my direction after seeing me ‘fan’ myself profusely with a tiny card I found in my bag. Talk about good service! And speaking of service, the food came in under 5 minutes! What’s not to love about this place……well perhaps the long queue on weekends might put one off.
And the food is pretty good as well with the main star being the chicken rice balls itself. Unlike the usual chicken rice restaurant we frequent in JS, these little rice balls are somewhat more flavorful that you could just eat it on its own! The Assam fish was pretty so-so, but still makes a lovely complement with the rice – incase you’re Indian and don’t like things dry
One satisfied Indian customer
Total bill: RM32 with RM23 alone for the fish!! Definitely worth a few more visits in the future me thinks.
Then we finally made our way to Jonker 88 for some cendol. Again, this place is famous for its long queue and obviously taste. However I couldn’t comprehend the big deal over the cendol. The gula melaka had a burnt smell/taste to it. I felt it wasn’t sweet enough or at least it’s not what I”m used to. So bah.
