meet up with an old RI friend for lunch at keng eng kee (KEK) today 12pm on 17.6.2015.^^
came for dinner 1 year ago with my sis & b-i-l.
i was there 15mins early. parking was better than expected. 🙂
i asked whether we could sit at the aircon place. lady gave me a card to call next time. my friend joined & said he tried to call but it was too late to make a booking. anyway the table at the coffeeshop area had fans & quite well ventilated. it was quite ok on this day.
we ordered the bitter gourd in black bean sauce dish. actually we ordered the one with beef (as we also ordered sliced fish thick beehoon soup) but it came with sliced fish. anyway we were ok with it.
it was done well, a good zi char dish, no difference from the rest. i had it at kok sen in kiong saik street before & basically about the same. i had it also at 香港街珍记 – hong kong street chun kee at commonwealth crescent. equally good. 🙂
we were contemplating either the spinach with ikan bilis or the “jew her eng chye” aka cuttlefish kang kong. both were shown on their picture menu.
friend decided on the ikan bilis.
it was very good. ikan bilis gave it a very good texture combination. the vege was done well & tasty.
for the carb dish we shared a S$5 sliced fish in thick beehoon.
this was quite perfect. a light carb, doubled as a tasty soup & with healthy sliced fish. ^^
prices had gone up a bit, as old prices were blanco & written over. lunch was S$25.40 including 2x$0.20 for wet tissue. quite ok lah! 🙂
this friend only joined RI in pre-U & was in the band so close to some of my band friends. good to spend time rediscovering old friendship.
we walked over to alexandra village for ice kachang & jackfruit jelly after lunch. 🙂
