Happy New Year Malaysia!
After having a few good days in Penang enjoying all the good food, it’s time to head back home. Two insisted to bring us for food in Bukit Mertajam where he says one can find “good & super reasonable” food stalls. Must trust him since he’s there almost daily!
First, we stopped by this little shack selling chu char (煮炒) but we were a little late as they were closing for the day! Good food sells out earlier I guess! As we were surveying around, we saw this stall selling “Steam Cup Rice” (烧腊蒸饭) so we just give it a shot without wasting much time.
Steam Cup Rice with Chicken (鸡飯) @ RM 3.50 ~ Steamed rice (蒸饭) was a little soggy but the bbq chicken slices are tender and tasty, even without the “dark gravy” sauce that’s supposed to be poured over it. Pickled chilies went well with the meal. Simple and tasty!
Accompanying Gravy & Soup ((自製醬和湯) ~ Soup was ok but the accompanying gravy was rather bland. I won’t mind not having my rice drenched with the “dark gravy” though, that was why I told them to serve it separately so that I may adjust to the amount I prefer.
Roast Chicken Drum Stick (燒雞腿) @ RM 3.00 (additional order) ~ Ordered another bbq drumstick for E as he was sharing a plate of this Steam Cup Rice with T. The price was absolutely reasonable! You can’t even get a plate of “mixed rice” with this price in KL! Besides roast chicken, they do have another choice which is the roast pork (燒肉) or a combo (肉参鸡).
Nice and friendly lady boss kept asking where I was from? Her 1st guess was Hong Kong! I just shook her hand and told her she’s so smart!! hahaha! Well, If you happen to stop by Bukit Mertajam (大山腳), you might want to come by this clean, cozy and laid back coffee shop for a good plate of chicken rice or the famous BM rojak.
