Muar~ my hometown ( 2 )
Sunday, June 8, 2008 / 6/08/2008 04:54:00 PM
went back muar last weekend~
agong's bday which means its a public holiday~
so we went back muar in the afternoon..
wat so proud off is~ I DRIVE ALL THE WAY BACK MUAR!
and the miracle was.. i din speed more than 130!
its my new record!
( because my mom grumble behind , 100 is fast enough edi... dun go too fast ar.... )
we reach muar about 4.30pm
so wats the 1st thing we do once we reach muar???
of course we 'hunt' for food!!
mom suggest to eat the muar wan tan min!
the wan tan min is the most busy wan tan min stall in Muar..
every1 juz love their wan tan min so much...
usualy we wun get a place to sit!
but today we are lucky as its not the lunch time or the dinner time..TEA - TIME
this is a must for wan tan min!
mom and dad love this!
they say w/o these chilies,
wan tan min wun taste nice wor..
but to me~ I HATE CHILIES!!!
wats the difference between the kl wan tan min and the muar wan tan min?
then muar wan tan min have the spicy version and the original version..
the spicy version is they mix in some sambal, soy sauce~ and kacau kacau the wan tan min
whereas the original version is like the kl 1~
but for the mee~
the kl 1 is more bouncy compare to the 1 in muar~
as for the cha siew~
of course the kl 1 is way better than the muar 1~
i used to order the original version~
but dad always order the spicy version for me..
i find tat the spicy version is yummy as well~
RM2.80 for this bowl of wan tan min
the yummy wan tan soup which is my favourite
i used to call wan tan soup~
because 3 pieces of wantan isnt enough for me!
i nid more!! more!! more!! wan tan!!!
** 2 small wan tan min + 1 big wan tan min + 1 wan tan soup = RM12**
besides the wan tan min~
u can order the otak otak as well..
there are many ppl walking in and out the shop selling the otak otak~
RM0.40 per otak otak ~
3 of us eat 20 of the otak otak ONLY
which i found out tat its nt enough!!!
i nid more!!!
the otak otak is so spicy!
i nid water!
so i come across this stall selling leong-cha ( herbal tea )
RM1 for this leong cha~
i dunno wat's the name..
it dont taste sweet but bitter~
and i feel a little bit of mint taste ( mom say i crazy~ whr got ppl cook leong cha wif mint? )
but i dun like it la...
i had my dinner around 8.30~ as we are stil full!!
i had my diner with my cousin sister whole family~

went to a place they named it 'under the rambutan tree'
nobody noe the restaurant name until we saw the bill..
HOCK MENG RESTAURANT~

the teo-chew style steam 'tongkang' fish~
why is this restaurant attract so many ppl?
all because of the fresh fish~
