Meidi-Ya

A couple blog posts ago, I was lamenting about craving for Meidi-Ya’s katsu sandwich, and it even prompted Mun to inform me that there are Meidi-Ya outlets hidden somewhere else around the Klang Valley.

Well, last last weekend (a couple weekends ago) I was back in KL for a quickfire trip. I had an errand to run on Saturday morning whereby I was supposed to meet someone in front of TMC in Bangsar to complete that errand…

By the way, for those of you who doesn’t know, TMC is located along a row of shop lots across the street from the Bangsar Village shopping mall. This TMC, it is a supermarket. For the rich. I mean, for the seriously rich. Folks come here for their grocery run driving their Mercs, BMWs and Audis. I even saw a Lamborghini there. Parked in their midst, it made my Jazz look like a toy car…

Anyway, that’s not the point. Let’s get back to the story. On the same row of shop lots as the TMC, guess what I discovered?

Oh yeah!!!

You know, at that point of time, I have not yet gotten into reading Mun’s comment in the blog, so I genuinely thought that this was some sort of miracle performed by some form of higher intelligence up above to answer my… no, not prayers. Cravings…

So after meeting the person that I was supposed to meet and doing whatever it was that needed to be done, I quickly entered this bakery to hunt for my beloved sandwich…

And be dealt with a major major major major disappointment…

See, this was what I got…

Healthy Sandwich Mix (RM 7.00)

Well, their sandwich is just as I remember: ultra soft and ultra fluffy. And their egg filling and tuna filling tasted exactly as I remember: delicious.

But there was NO KATSU SANDWICH. To make matters 1 trillion times worse, when I asked the shop assistants about katsu sandwich, they both gave me a perplexed look and told me they have no idea what that is and that they never made that.

Like… WTF?!

This means some time between the many many many years ago when Meidi-Ya was still around in downtown KL, and now, the katsu sandwich was discontinued from Meidi-Ya Malaysia’s list of sandwich offerings. And the current staff are new and have never seen it before.

This means I shall NEVER be able to taste my most favorite sandwich in the entire world, ever again. That super crunchy, deep fried, thinly sliced katsu cutlet, sandwiched by the ultra soft and fluffy sandwich bread, it will forevermore remain just a treasured distant memory locked in my heart…

Shit…

Fucking hell…

Damn…

Nooooo!!!!! πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™

Shit I got depressed again, writing this piece…

Let’s end this post on a more positive note. Let me show you my dinner today, a “super healthy” macaroni soup with broccoli and carrot and tomato and mushrooms and whatnot.

……

No, wait, that’s the wrong picture. That’s not mine…

This one…

Yeah…

And here’s a song clip from my favorite Rurouni Kenshin (anime) song. Golden oldie anime song makes me happy, and I hope makes you happy too…

Yeah… better… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

(I think) I might be able to write blogs more often again fairly soon. Probably not daily… but more frequent than once a month. I think I’ll even blog hop a little maybe tomorrow. Or next week. Whenever I am not too burnt out from work…

    • If you mean my mom, she used to love these, but recently nope. These days she see bread = fat. The only bread she eat now are those that you can only find in those organic shops.

  1. I find it difficult to believe that there is such a wonderfully delicious katsu sandwich in meidi-ya that is discontinued because if it is that delicious why would they discontinue it? Let me check with my friend to see if it is possible to ask any “old” employees about this missing katsu sandwich. I agree someone up there heard your cravings and arrange it so that you are reunited with meidi-ya.

      • Mun seems to be on the right track with the sandwich. Maybe one day you will find a katsu sandwich much better than ever before πŸ™„ I was looking at your pasta broccoli and looks like you cut the broccoli nice nice small small πŸ˜€

        • Ya, I cut the broccoli small small. I tried to make them the same size as the macaroni when cooked. I think I made it… partially… πŸ™„

      • No, not this one. This one is from Meidi-Ya Singapore which they ordered from some tonkatsu restaurant or something.

        The katsu from Meidi-Ya KL was made in house. It was called “Chicken Katsu” if I’m not mistaken. The katsu part was a very thin slice of chicken meat, breaded and deep fried. It was pure crunch. It doesn’t look like a typical katsu sando, where the katsu (cutlet) as thick as the bread.

    • Maybe it was only wonderfully delicious to me. I remember my mom don’t like it at all and got angry because I loved it. πŸ™„
