Breakfast

The Daily Fix @Melaka, Malaysia

This was the cafe that we wanted to check out during our previous trip, but it was full house when we were there. This time, we went there at 9am, and it was already more than half-full!

Since we already had breakfast, we only tried the Local Pandan Pancakes (RM13 + 6% Service Tax), which was pretty good! For drinks, we had a double shot Cafe Latte (RM10+) and Matcha Latte (RM11+). Both were not bad.

榕树下粿条仔 Restoran Rong Shu Xia @Johor Bahru, Malaysia

This was our first stop for the day after clearing customs 🙂 Originally a stall inside a coffee shop, this place has since then expanded to own a full shop front next door. We randomly ordered a few items such as 大肠头,大肠,卤蛋,猪血,三层肉,瘦肉,as well as two bowls of kway tiao 粿条。

The herbal broth was quite light, making the silky kway tiao an easy slurp. The pig’s blood was more like beancurd with a strong herbal taste. The intestines were very clean and even Ms. K was willing to try some!

And what really impressed us was the freshly deep fried shallots, which made everything so much more addictive! 油葱炸得好香!

Bukit Chagar Roti Canai @Johor, Malaysia

IMG_7623We went on a day trip to Johore again!

And first up was this popular roti canai (or roti prata in Singapore) near the JB custom.

Despite being quite near customs, it took us a little while to find the correct route to this little corner. And it didn’t help that it was raining heavily.

We reached around 10.30am, and split up the work; one went to queue and order, while the rest of us try to secure a table.

We ordered Roti Canai Kosong (RM1 each), and by 10.45am, all roti canai was sold out. We were one of the last few customers, lucky sia!

榮茂茶室 Low Yong Moh Restaurant @Melaka, Malaysia

Our last morning in Melaka, and we were on our way to check out some cafe when we past by 榮茂茶室 Low Yong Moh Dim Sum Restaurant, and there was no queue 😮 Well, considering we did not have a really good experience with dim sum the previous day, and this was the place where we visited during our first trip to Melaka, we decided that we should not have any dim sum regrets. Yes, we got side-tracked again 😛

The place was just as we remembered how it was, fairly bustling and crowded. Service was prompt and rather friendly. Once we settled down and ordered our Pu-Er tea (RM 1.10 per pax), staff came by with trays of assorted dim sum and we just pointed to whatever we fancied. The prices of the dim sum that we ordered ranged from RM1.70 to RM3, and could go up to RM5. Erm, the menu was not very helpful in determining prices, so just order what you fancy 🙂

While the food was not fancy, it was definitely better than yesterday 😛 We particularly enjoyed the juicy and tender chicken wrapped in aluminium foil. Hubby, as usual, enjoyed his fishballs 😛 And despite the bustle and hustle, time seemed to just slow down while we take in the sights and enjoy our food in this little old-school joint 🙂

林记沙煲肉骨茶 Restoran Lim Kee @Melaka, Malaysia

We were en-route to our dim sum breakfast, when we walked past this rather popular Bak Kut Teh restaurant seemingly in the middle of nowhere, and so… we postponed dim sum to lunch *LOL*

Service was efficient; basically we were ushered to a table, asked a few questions and viola, our food was served rather quickly… all without seeing the menu 😛

許記蒸餃 Xu’s Dumpling @Kaohsiung

This was a popular double-storey dumpling eatery. We shared a basket of 10 dumplings (NT90) for brunch and it was awesome!

The dumpling skin was relatively thin and when we bit through it, there was some soup that oozed out. The taste of chives was very distinct, and the meat tasted fresh. We totally enjoyed it!

Tasixi Hong Kong Dim Sum 大四喜香港点心 @Skudai, Johor Bahru, Malaysia

We managed to reach our breakfast joint just past 9am and we were hungry! So many choices, so little stomach space. In the end, we managed to try 11 items and tea for RM66.

Items that we enjoyed included the herbal siew mai, herbal chicken feet, otah (aka otak-otak) and red meat roll. I also thought that the xiao long bao was not bad, but our friends preferred the Ding Tai Feng version 😛 The prawn in the har gaw was very fresh too 🙂

Ms T also enjoyed the small meat bun which she said the skin was quite stretchy and not dry… she had the skin while we had the fillings 😛

The rest were pretty standard, but the fishball was a tad too fishy for our liking.

We enjoyed the buzzing atmosphere of this place and the staff was pretty friendly. A lovely way to kick start our day trip 🙂

Restaurant Ah Koong 亚坤纯正西刀鱼丸 @Johor Bahru, Malaysia

It was quite late when we finally cleared the customs, so we went to the nearby Restaurant Ah Koong 亚坤纯正西刀鱼丸 to get a quick fix for breakfast. We shared a Handmade Big Fishball with Soup 手打大粒鱼丸 (RM9 for 6 pieces), Mixed Yong Tau Fu 酿什锦 (RM10.20), Crispy Fish 香脆鱼饼 (RM5.30 per piece), and Crispy Mixed Plate 炸三宝 (RM7) to share.

The fish balls were quite bouncy and the rest of the food were pretty decent. Not bad for a quick breakfast 🙂

早餐坊 Breakfast Bistro @Taipei

IMG_4756IMG_4752We were taking a stroll after breakfast, when we were attracted by this 早餐坊 Breakfast Bistro… and had our second (and third :P) 蛋餠 Crepe of the day!

Both the Cheese Bacon 培根起司燒餅 (NT45) and Smoked Chicken 燻雞蛋餅 (NT40) versions were quite good!

Now we really need a good long stroll to walk off everything…

四海豆浆大王 Four Seas Soy Milk King @Taipei

IMG_4749Our first breakfast on the final day was at 四海豆浆大王 Four Seas Soy Milk King along 長安西路 Chang’an West Road which is very near to our hotel.

For NT90, we got ourselves a 豆浆 Soy Milk, 燒餠夹葱蛋夹肉排 Chinese Pancake with Spring Onion Egg and Meat Patty, and 肉鬆蛋餠 Crepe with Meat Floss.

It was always quite satisfying whenever we have this simple local breakfast amidst the bustling busy morning traffic  🙂

And off we go to explore other parts of the city before our flight in the afternoon!
