There’s really never short of Chinese food in UK. Not Malaysian food though. Met up with a friend in London recently. We were so hungry that we just decided to eat at the nearest Chinese shop. You can see that I must be so hungry that I forgot to take a picture of the shop - only the food! These are what we ordered.
This fried Chinese crispy noodles, ordered by our friend, cost £5.50. It does look impressive. He said it’s nice, especially with the chilli oil. The chilli oil cost 80p for half a small little bowl.
This plate of fried kway teow was ordered by Steven. Cost £5.50. The colour looked dull and unappetizing. It tasted quite average. Only the chilli oil brought some kick to it.
This is what I ordered - vegetarian rice. Cost £5.40. I had quite a bad throat so I decided that some light and vegetarian food would be best. Won’t be what I would normally order. Well, I was quite disappointed. The taste was very bland. Well, I was so hungry that I finished almost the whole plate despite the bland taste.
This plate of fried spring rolls came free for the 3 dishes that we ordered. It was definitely so tempting but I had to save my throat. The 2 men were of course all too happy to have my share. Altogether, with the drinks, it cost about £20. Quite reasonable I think as the portions are quite big. Can’t compare to home cooked meals of course.
I like one-dish meal as it reminds me of all the wonderful food served in cafes or open-air food stalls in Malaysia. I just miss all the spices and well-blended flavours in Malaysian food. Well, there’s always next time and more adventures around UK for food.
Do share what is your favourite Chinese or Malaysian food.

“One of the delights of life is eating with friends, second to that is talking about eating. And, for an unsurpassed double whammy, there is talking about eating while you are eating with friends.”
