The Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) of getting your food is simple. All you need to do is get in line, take a plate of rice, porridge or just an empty plate, then proceed to pile your plate up with those delicious dishes! The line is quite systematically managed, once you are done, just head to the end of the line to the lady boss who will tell you how much your plate costs. She quotes a price based on eyeballing your plate – you can ask for breakdown but don’t bother getting a receipt.
While this isn’t the cheapest economy rice in town, given the quality of the food, I still find it reasonable. My extremely full plate of stir fried eels, stir fried leeks and carrots and stir fried Chinese spinach cost me about RM10, while the other is about RM8. Every patron of the restaurant is served a free bowl of soup of the day and you can also help yourselves to unlimited water or tea.
Given that this is a childhood favourite, I have seen this Chinese shop grow from a small store into what it is today. I used to sit at tables and chair placed on uneven floor surface; sweating profusely as I chow down on a delicious plate of their economy rice back in the day. Today, it is a better Chinese restaurant, serving up great quality dishes to the neighbourhood. If you are ever in the area, make a trip there and give it a try. I can almost guarantee an absolutely satisfying meal!
