It has been a while since we last visited Port Dickson so we did a last minute planning a head down south for a short holiday. We reached around noon and since checking in time to the resort we booked is another hour away, we thought we should kill some time by having lunch first.
We barely have any idea to which restaurant we should go, therefore we just choose randomly. There was this Lucky King Bun along the road which is famous for its curry bun with some fillings like spare ribs or curry chicken encased within. Since wifey weren’t too keen we drove further down and spotted this restaurant across the road. The signboard was very visible and caught our attention.
We were greeted by the lady boss which has this “air” on her face. She showed us the way to the first floor. Our order was taken and w/o any smile on her face, she walked off and was never seen again. It could be because we did not order any fish, prawns or other expensive items on the menu which she recommended, hence that attitude. Anyway, we were glad to see the back of her.
Upstairs is twice as big, looked like a proper Chinese restaurant – fully air-conditioned, clean & comfortable but have this musty smell from the table cloth.
Wat Tan Hor (滑蛋河) @ RM 5.00/pax – The first to arrive was this half dead unappetizing plate of noodle. This plate of noodle exudes creativity, flavour and quality. Well, let me tell you.. It taste just like how it looked! I wish I’d never ordered this!
Yangzhou Fried Rice (揚州炒飯) @ RM 5.00/pax – This wasn’t too bad. The grains are well textured, plump and full of wok hei. Other ingredients such as green beans, char siew , egg and sliced carrot complimented this simple yet flavorful plate of fried rice really well.
Singapore Fried Mee Hoon (星洲米粉) @ RM 5.00/pax ~ Comprises of bean sprouts, sliced carrots, cabbage, onions, egg and char siew bits, each strand of the mee hoon is coated with flavour albeit the fact that being a tad oily. Guess that is the thumb of rule for dishing out a good plate of mee hoon. Lacked of oil will make it lumpy. It was tasty nonetheless!
Besides those ordinary dishes I ordered, Mei Jing actually caters more towards scrumptious meal for its patrons, and there is a wide selection of dishes to be selected from the menu. Some of the must-tries in this restaurant include Salted Egg Yolk Crab, Belacan Paku Pakis (Wild Fern Shoots), Honey Pork Ribs, Butter Milk Deep Fried Squid & Minced Meat Bean curd . These are some of the few popular dishes of this restaurant.
