As mentioned at the last paragraph in the previous post, we split up after the second round of breakfast at Yang Kee; Unkaleong, NomadGourmand, Boolicious and Simon went to the OUG wet market to search for the elusive butter cake, while the rest of us went straight to 1U Neway for karaoke session. Click here for the rave review of the cake and directions. Simon did brought a box over to karaoke where we actually polished off the whole box! Ahemm… I actually had only two pieces so the rest went to the stomach of the other floggers. 😛
After much yelling, humming and dancing by Simon, we were hungy again! And so we found our ways to Otak-Otak Place for tea time. As their tea time set only available at 3pm, some of us actually waited 30 mins just to order that! And while waiting, some had the grilled otak otak which was priced at RM 0.60 per stick (normal price RM 1.10) and entertained ourselves immensely by playing Happy Family, relieving the days when I played that with primary school classmates and neighbours.
“May I have Mr Dauber?” “Sorry, not at home!” followed by evil grin and giggles.
I went ahead and ordered the Cucur Otak-Otak (RM 5.50). It resembles a large piece of cracker, cut into half with otak otak in the middle and served with a dip of homemade sambal. Taste-wise, it was rather hard and a bit greasy.
SC ordered another item on the menu (sorry, I couldn’t remember what is it) which looked like steamed otak otak with toasts. I didn’t try it, but I think I remember she mentioned about the texture not solid enough for her liking.
And one of their tea set is the toasts with soft-boiled eggs and a cup of coffee or teh tarik. Decent stuff, the teh tarik/coffee was pretty good by the way.
And that concludes our makan trip for the day, which turned out to be the last food crawl I had with Precious Pea. As I typed this out, she had already set her foot on the ground of Melbourne-land, reunited with her sister, brother-in-law and nephew. I will miss her dearly; her laughter, her cooking, her company. I won’t forget the days when she came all the way to Cheras with Jackson and WMW to bring me out for dinner. I could only wait for the day when she comes back to Malaysia and we could have another food crawl again.
Precious Pea, thank you for everything!
