Hometown Steam Fish Head Restaurant 陈秀莲蒸鱼头 @ Bandar Menjalara

This is my first visit to this Hometown Steam Fish Head Restaurant located in Bandar Menjalara.  I used to dine at their HQ in Jalan Chan Sow Lin many years ago and quite impressed by their steam fish.

The kitchen

Menus on the wall

Asam Fish Head

Steam fish in sweet & spicy sauce 酱蒸非洲鱼 @ RM23.00

Sweet & Sour Pork 咕噜肉 @ RM12.00

Fried Yau Mak 清炒油麦 @ RM8.00

The fish is fresh comes with a lot of pork lard, but the sauce is a bit mild.  Maybe i should order their home cook style instead of this.  As for the pork, it's crunchy and nice.  My hubby loves the vege too because it's well cooked with enough 'wok hei'.

Kafe Mee Jawa @ Solaris Dutamas

It's hardly to get a bowl of nice mee jawa nearby my area.  Today, when i pass by this shop called Kafe Mee Jawa, i just hop in to give it a try.

Open kitchen concept

The cashier counter.

Teh Panas, served with the breakfast set
This is a small cup of Teh Panas, smooth and fragrant.  It's light up my day. ^^

Mee Jawa (Mini bowl) served with a cup of Teh @ RM6.90 per set
I like the Mee Jawa here, medium thick soup with some sotong cook in belacan.  Not too spicy but rich in flavour.  Yummy~

Lam Mee (Mini bowl) served with a cup of Teh @ RM5.90 per set
The special of this Lam Mee is it's comes with some vinegar marinated garlic, very refreshing.

Nasi Lemak bungkus served with a cup of Teh @ RM3.90 per set
The rice is just fresh from the rice cooker with a lot of peanuts, ikan bilis, 1/2 hard boiled egg and of course must have the sambal.

I think this is one of the most budgeting cafe around Solaris Dutamas.  They do have assam laksa, prawn noodle and other asian cuisines.  Hope can make a time to try out the others in future.
