The View, Tun Sardon

Last two days were our 放生日 (bro going overseas lah!) and therefore we had a whole 2 days of 吃吃喝喝玩玩乐乐 !

This Hill Town Restaurant is located at the Pemandangan Indah at Jalan Tun Sardon. We used to call it "The View" - one of the mountainbiking routes. We will cycle from Sungai Ara, go across the hill of Sungai Ara and come out at the mid of the Tun Sardon road. The killing part which I hate most of this trail is always this stretch of road cycling up until the place where you can see the view.

Ronda Butterworth

On the way back, while passing through the Wolley Avenue (if not mistaken, I think this area which consists of the whole stretch of 3-storey shop houses is called so), I came across this Kocha Kopitiam (Jalan Raja Uda, Butterworth). Hmm…its style was very much similar to the Old Town Kopitiam at Prai Megamall. Hence, we stopped by to try it out.

One glance at the menu, it offers wider range of choices than Old Town Kopitiam. It also serves 'proper' noodles and porridge. (Old Town Kopitiam serves nissin instant noodle right?! :) ) We ordered garlic bread, butter kaya roti, milo, teh o ais and classic kopi.

kocha kopitiam butter kaya roti The butter kaya roti uses Hai Lam Ma roti oh (a winning point).

garlic bread
Keep it up! Kocha Kopitiam!

Express Set Lunch

I seldom go out with colleagues for daily lunch coz I went back to Batu Maung for shower and lunch.

These two days were exceptual.

Yesterday was our Quarter Review day therefore I stayed. As usual all of us (the whole company employees) were treated lunch at canteen. This time there were malay chicken rice, satay, ice cream, apple and drink each.

Since last week I have been trying to get responses from colleagues to check the Aver Cafe's set lunch out. It costs RM9.90++ only each. I got the confirmed menu on Tuesday. Since yesterday was having kinda 'heavy' meal, therefore I did not expect to visit this Aver Cafe that fast. But then due to some 'members' personal constraints, yesterday we decided last minute - 'OK, GO lah tomorrow'.
I managed to get support from 11 of them (who were willing to be 'guinea-pigs' :) ). I booked one day before with the details of every single order for each individual in order to save time on the next day.

So there we went today! It ended up......FOOD was GOOD and also very WORTHY but then the serving speed was too slow (despite of the pre-ordering we did one day before).

Anyway, other than the speed, I was relieved that the feedbacks from them on the food were good.

Express Set Lunch (Thursday) at RM9.90++ per person.

Yi Mai Fu Zhuk
Lately all of us in the office have been consuming too many raya cookies and I myself was also having the so called 'after-effect of the long holiday' - I couldn't sleep until kinda late at night. Therefore I prepared this Yi Mai Fu Zhuk (意米腐竹汤水) to 下火. Scared lah, prevent is better than cure loh :)
