I’m back in KL for the weekend, making a quick detour on my way to Johor for a working trip next week.
So I fetched my mom to downtown KL for a religious errand at a certain Chinese temple (师爷庙) very close to Central Market. Something to do with having to give thanks to certain gods before the year ends or something.
And then we had lunch in a nice restaurant which we used to frequent back when we were still hanging out in that area all the time.
靓汤 actually means Beautiful Soup. Of course, Beautiful Soup Restaurant would sound weird. It would be something that you would find only in China. So the English name of this restaurant is Oriental Bowl.
It used to be a very expensive and high end restaurant, and coming here means a wonderful treat on special occasions. But their prices seem to have remained the same throughout these years, and this time I actually felt their food is quite reasonably priced.
Malaysians would get what I mean. You know right, a RM 30 meal is expensive back then, but it has become the norm in KL these days.
Anyway, we ordered their set meals (RM28++ per set), all of them come with a soup and a drink.
This place is still one of my mom’s most favorite restaurant for eating out. It is one of the only few places in town that uses good quality ingredients and no MSG. Try their soup once and you will know the huuuugeeeee difference between the soup here versus the soup in other restaurants.
By the way, I had the drumstick rice and my mom had the fried rice.
It’s true… it’s true… 🙄 🙄 🙄
PS: Before you Singaporean readers accuse me of not meeting up, I won’t be going into JB this time. It is only a two days one night trip and I will spend all day in the factory so I will stay within Senai and JPO.
