The first thing to highlight about this place at the end of the meal will be the price and compliment with the title “worthwhile”. Other than that the foods are tasty as well. Foods are well cooked and tasty as well. Let us go through dishes we have for dinner this time.

More of the Yam With Pork

Ermm… what we had for dinner was not exactly the above as the yam with pork the waitress happened to serve wrongly to our table. Therefore, managed to take a snapshot of that before they moved back to the right table.

Anyway, when I mentioned the foods are really worthwhile was that what we order for this meal are (1) Fried long bean with garlic (2) Mei Cai Pork (3) One Xi Yang Cai Soup With Pork (4) 2 Rice (5) One Kopi-O. All these for just around RM$44 and the portion are very good enough for 3 to 4 persons. And best of that is that it is good and tasty as well.

So what do you think?

Laksa Of 28 Food Centre Miri

If you love laksa, this might be one of the places that you should try while you are in Miri. This laksa was highly recommended by my friend who is staying there and it sold out fast.

Sticky Rice Dumpling Zhong Zi

Tags

, , , , , ,

It is almost the sticky rice dumpling festival time again which falls on the fifth month of the lunar calendar. In the past usually, when it was around these times, mine grandmother will then started to make this dish. However, in today times, a lot of the traditions are no longer like traditions whereby foods that are seasonal no longer become seasonals due to the demand and innovation from businesses like for instance a very classic example is durian, whereby durians are only available during certain periods of time but in today context, it became available almost throughout the years due to the demand, innovation is being altered genetically due to the demand from the consumers.

Well, in life, in every change there are always pro and con pending on how we visualized it. Like the case above, the pro is that we no longer have to wait for the durian to fall and eventually in terms of the price context it will become cheaper naturally as supply will be more abundant. The con, we no longer felt the joy of the atmosphere of going around seeking for the foods and fighting for it. These totally change what it is like to eat durians compare to now and the past. It creates a bonding, not just about the consuming it but we are missing out the elements of the ambiance of the fruits due to the fact that it was only limited for that period of time.

Back to zongzi. Zongzi in tradition are wrapped in bamboo leaves of the lotus or banana leaves in our region here. Basically, these leaf imparts its own unique aroma and flavor to the rice.  The rice used is always glutinous rice. The rice then lightly precooked by stir-frying or soaked in water. The filling may be varied, some can be sweet and some tend to be savory or salty; for the salty part, they may include duck eggs, pork belly, shredded pork or chicken, sausage, water chestnut, shiitake mushrooms and even peanuts.

The inside of the Zong Zi

The belief of the zongzi from the research on the net. That the Chinese eating zongzi is to commemorate the death of the Qu Yuan, a famous Chinese poet from the kingdom of Chu who lived during the Warring States periods known for his patriotism. Qu Yuan tried unsuccessfully to warn his king and countrymen against the expansion of the Qin neighbors. When the Qin general Bai Qi took Ying du, the Chu capital. Qu Yuan grief was so intense that he drowned himself into the Miluo River after penning the Lament for Ying. According to the legend, packets of rice were then thrown into the river to prevent the fish from eating his body.

A Good Cup Of Kopi O

If you are a fan of coffee – “Kopi O”, by looking at it if you are a big fan of this beverage, you will definitely love this. For us, the foam on top of the coffee was one of the benchmarks on how good is the coffee, usually, when we see foam like this, it was usually good and this was good.

My group of friend name this “Stout kopi-O”, as you can clearly understand how the name come about. But remember, when you order mention you want Kopi-o with the thick foam, as it was specially made.

Salted Egg Chicken Sandwich

Ermm… well, the final salted chicken sandwich, some of you all might think how come there was a shift from Asian to Western. Well, it was due to the promotion package, one coffee or tea, plus one “salted egg chicken sandwich” plus two hard boiled eggs for just four dollars. Plus on top of that how come did we come across the chicken sandwich come with salted eggs. How is it? To me, it does blend well with my taste.

Well, that all folks for this breakfast. Have a nice weekend.

One of the old famous restaurant for Rojak, red bean and cendol drinks. For those who don’t know what is rojak, here is a little brief description of what it is. Basically, Rojak is a traditional fruit and vegetable salad dish mix with a special dressing that is made of ground chili pepper, palm sugar, and peanuts that is black in color. that is commonly found in Southeast Asia region. Other than the fruit and vegetable, you also get a choice to mix with fried tofu, cracker, culler, and fritter. However, I am not a big fan of this dish but many of my friends who love it. And this was one of the places, that a lot of peoples come for this dish.

I couldn’t tell you about this dish, as personally I don’t take it and therefore, it was very hard for me to say how good it is. As I love to take food photos and since my friend offers me to come for this. Well, why not, let my phone eat it and share with you all.

The Collective Wild Flower

Last few weeks ago, we had a family brunch at this cafe which my wife read over the internet – the collective wild flower, located in the RBRC; Royal Brunei Recreation Club. Well, reading from the internet this was a cafe plus florist.

By looking at the interior of this cafe, the wall and tables are full of greenery and colorful flowers and these decoratives really brighten up the day.

All are about greenery

The choice of foods are not wide, however, sometimes it was not about quantity but instead on the quality. Basically, at this moment it was about bread, pastry, latte, and cakes.

Good Latte and table are mostly wooden which create a garden touch

Banana Cake

 

 

Usually, I am not a very big fan of sweet stuff. However, this banana cake was good. Other than the taste profile what I do like about this was crispy on the outside but soft and warm on the inside. A perfect combination of my like.

 

 

IMG_20180503_222630_395.jpg

A perfect combo

Next, come, the savory part, the chicken sandwich, crispy on the sandwich and soft juicy tender chicken on the inside. Love the way, it was done.

Other than the foods, the service, ambiance of the place are goods. In fact, during my brunch there, they also provide drawing paper for my kids to draw while waiting for these to be served. I find instead of describing it as a cafe, but it was more to like comfortable, relaxing a bit on the garden feel with all the flowers on the wall plus the real flowers and pots all around.

A nice place to chill and relax over the weekend.
