Happy Birthday Aunt!
It’s always very difficult to choose a healthy eating place. My aunt is always health conscious and my grandma are not suppose to eat oily or sweet stuff (even though she cheats sometime ).
Well guess what, the boss told them that the dishes were all cooked with NO preservative and artificial food flavoring, in addition to that all dishes are cook with tea leaves for extra taste and gimmick I must say..
Did you ever have problems picking your dishes when you get into a restaurant? (We avoided that but instead we had trouble picking our table. We moved 3 times around the restaurant. In our defense, it was all for the comfort of grandma.. =p)
Hahaha… we skipped that part and go on straight to order the set menu. The Only tea recipe Halal Bak Kut Teh in Malaysia set menu. <—told ya dishes will be cooked with some tea leaves.
2. 3 choices of tea meal, there is a range choices from tau fu, egg, seafood and vegetables. We chose ( I can’t remember the name of the dishes though):
5. Puer Tea – I’m not a tea expert but I think they are serving the tea in a proper manner. One teapot for holding tea leaves to be soaked with water, then pouring the tea to another teapot for consumption. This is to prevent the tea from being too concentrated.
My brother turn up late for the dinner, giving excuses such as traffic jam… He said we usually follow the Malaysian time (i.e. +30min). However, we arrived at 8pm sharp. So as punishment, we will post this picture of him.
My grandma kept stopping my aunt from eating up the dishes without leaving some for him. I think my aunt just can’t resist good food. In the end, grandma insist on ordering another dish for him, drunken chicken:
It taste different from the usual drunken chicken outside but still taste good.
The total bill was: RM104.25 (5 person sharing)
The dishes are not too sweet, not too salty and not too plain, just the right taste. All dishes use minimal oil. It was a very healthy dinner. We will go back again to have more. It is a double thumbs up from me.
