Eating Out 1 - Noodles and Dumplings

Eating out is a once-a-week treat for us. Mummy cooks on all the other days, including on Sundays because we usually spend the whole day resting at home (err, the resting part is not for mummy though because she still needs to slog in the kitchen to feed us - daddy and me, haha!). Our Saturdays are reserved for outings and it is also the only day that we get to dine out.

We usually go for simple meals... something not too heavy, meaty or oily. We like noodles the most. This is one of our favourite noodle shops and we order exactly these same stuff every time we eat here... ;)

My favourite soup dumplings a.k.a xiao loong bao a.k.a 汤包... 6yuan (RM3) per basket of 8 pcs. This is best eaten with some vinegar but I prefer to eat them plain.


Daddy's minced meat noodles 炸酱拌面... 10yuan (RM5)


Mummy's mixed mushroom noodles 菌菇拌面... 10yuan (RM5). The noodle portion is BIG (the bowl is deep) so I usually share with mummy


Yummy wantan 小馄饨... 4yuan (RM2) for a bowl of about 15pcs


During the strawberry season, mummy would also hunt for strawberries in a fruit shop opposite this noodle shop. China strawberries are the best we've ever eaten! They are absolutely fresh, juicy, SWEET and of course, dirt cheap too at only 10yuan (RM5) per kg. Imagine, only RM5 for one whole kilo!


Both the noodle shop and fruit shop are located along this quiet street near our home. On weekends, especially in the afternoon, we can see many elderly folks chilling at the roadside playing mahjong and cards :)

    1. Yes, chicken and eggs are off our menu for the moment... Even C's school and hubby's company cafeteria have temporarily stopped serving poultry-related products as a precautionary measure.
