The last time we went, there were not so many ppl, and the drinks and snacks were tasty and special. Their kaya is of the 'homemade' variety, and the menu explained the origin of the famous (supposedly) kaya from Kuala Lipis, Pahang. Back then, we tried both the bun toast, roti jala with curry chicken, and toasted white bread with butter & kaya. Even their tea and coffee was satisfying.
However, this time around, the quality dropped, DRASTICALLY. Let's start with the drink, Kwai Sam Milky (RM2.50). Not milky enough, and not smooth enough. The only consolation? SWEET. (at that moment i really craved for something sweet, after a HEAVY dinner of bah kut teh at Jalan Ipoh, a supposedly popular stall beside Hotel Dynasty. The meat & trotters were FAT! And to avoid disappointing our hosts, yes, it was a FREE meal :) i had to eat all the innards, which i dislike). But that's another story, no chance to take pic then, but those of you who stay around Jalan Ipoh might know this stall.
Yew Char Kwai with Kaya
I ordered Yew Char Kwai (Deep fried Cruellers) with kaya, as the pic in their menu shows absolutely tempting sticks drizzled generously with kaya. YUMMY! But wait, when it arrived, as above, you can imagine my disappointment. Kaya was watery, damn stingy portion, and the yew char kwai were cold, and hard. Hmm, thumbs down for this, at RM3.00 no less.Soft Bun Toast with Kaya
Ahh ... Soft Bun Toast with Kaya (RM2.00), what could go wrong, right? Wrong! No butter sandwiched in between, only THIN layer of kaya (should've take pic of the filling, or rather, the lack of). The bread was cold, again, and texture was coarse. I had to dip it in my tea to finish my portion. But i didn't. Haha .... no, wait. Shouldn't laugh. Sigh ....
That was the supper. Disappointing dinner, and worse supper. Hmm, bad omen? We'll see to that.
