Friday lunches are one of the things I look forward to at work because I usually get to indulge in a hearty lunch of char siew and dishes. I would tag along this group of colleagues who love their meats and be rewarded with a meal that is reasonably cheap.
This lunch place in mention has no name. Or even if it does have a name, it would be in Chinese and I can’t read.
The place is quite shabby and puts off most of my female colleagues. You basically sit by the drain or under a zinc roof and rough it out as you tuck into the food. They offer a good selection of chap fan (mix rice) dishes, soup and roasted meats.
There’s no ordering here – just take a plate of white rice and load up on the dishes you want. If you’re dining in a larger group (like I do), scoop the dishes onto the plates and order rice to eat with them.
Our typical meal comprises char siew, herbal chicken, vegetable of the day, stewed chicken, tofu and potatoes. Very often, we would add on another plate of char siew – half lean, half fat – to indulge. The food isn’t fantastic but I like coming here because I always leave feeling satisfied.
Total damage per person inclusive of a drink is usually RM8 or no more than RM10, and I leave feeling content. :) This shack is located just below the budget Hotel Lee Mun along Jalan Petaling.

Food: 5.5/10 (non halal)
Verdict: For the amount of food we usually eat, it’s very affordable.
