Mother’s Recipe

October 16th, 2007 · 21 Surrendered

We wanted to go to Garden Steamboat last Saturday night but they were closed for Raya. So we changed to Tabuan Laru Chong Qing steamboat but guess what!?!?! It’s no longer operating… So sad… So we just simply find a place there to eat. Ended up at Mother’s Recipe.

It’s nyonya cuisine.


Soya bean(RM1.80), ice lemon tea(RM1.80) and barley(RM1.80). Expensive -.-“


Left: Plain rice(can’t remember the price)
Right: Fresh Stir-Fried Kai Lan(RM6), not bad…


Left: Pork Leg With Mushroom(RM6), not so bad.
Middle: Chicken Sweet Corn Soup(RM6), tastless.
Right: Thick Nyonya Chicken Curry(RM6), nice 🙂 How pathetic… On 1st day of Raya, everyone got to eat free curries and we had to pay to eat and so little summore hahaha…

When they brought the food out, we were so surprised, the portions were so small for the 6 of us *LOL* Quite expensive. For the 6 of us, the total amount was RM39!!! With this amount we can eat till we’re full at a coffeeshop or restaurant for the 6 of us! We were only half full. We decided to go to Jalan Song for second round. To be continued… 😛

    I can’t stop laughing when I saw your comment on the food and price. Ya I did try out once and I order the pork leg rice and my sis order the mee hon. I do agree its over price for the food and drinks. I attracted by their shop name. Thought like Secret Recipe ma turn out so so. My mom can cook better ha ha

    […] Left: La Kia Kio(in Hokkien, I don’t know what it’s called in other languages hahaha…) Fish Soup(RM5), another homey dish. Don’t worry about this, there’s no bone in the fish meat. At home, I only eat the la kia kio, I didn’t eat the fish at home because my mom always cooked the fish with bones. Right: Mixed Veg Curry (RM5), their new dish. The curry was quite thick however the ownder said they had diluted it a bit this time to see whether it’s acceptable by the diners or not as some people don’t like thick curry but still quite thick. Personally I like their Thick Nyonya Chicken Curry that I had last time. […]
