Xiu Long Bao…
Luscious and interesting,
A flogger venturing for unsurpassed good food,
A legal representative who is leaving for Singapore before long,
We shall bid her goodbye,
ala flogger’s style.
Let’s go food crawling!!
First stop: Restoran Muar @ Tengkat Tong Shin
As a virgin to Jalan Alor, that’s what wmw named Chris and I for being a first-timer, we have initially planned to try out Wong Ah Wah’s chicken wings. However, thanks to the shortage of water supply, they’re closed! Blame us for not reading the news earlier ;P Ok la.. it’s not your fault k, ekeng and xiu long bao? haha. After meeting up with Jason, we ended up going for Restoran Muar’s dishes 🙂
Another great discovery for us virgins, the dishes here churned out well. Too bad we had to wait about 40 minutes for our hungry tummy to be fed!
Evidence? See below ;P
We had some sweet treats before of mains. The chendol for RM1 was a sweetheart. Drizzled with my favourite gula melaka, this cute preparation helped save the hungry souls in us for the moment ;P
The Crispy Fried Egg with Soya Sauce was something I’ve never thought of having, as Chris and I first encountered this. The egg was actually deep fried (cha tan – in cantonese) Rather unusual from our typical fried egg, as this share was a crispy one! Brittle texture and though it’s oilier than our normal daily fried egg consumption, we find it special. Priced at RM7. Tried preparing this yourself at home?
Butter Kailan for RM10. Deep fried kailan with crunchy bites dressing up with butter!! My favourite dish among others, the vege was fragrant and bet it’ll be a suitable tidbit as well!
Going for something light so that our tummy can accommodate more food for the next round, we went for the Seafood Beancurd (RM16), which is cooked and simmered up together with assorted seafood such as prawns and squids along with the moderately thick gravy.

Second stop: more food at Jalan Alor
Despite the water supply cut off, we still walked our way back to Jalan Alor. Not bearing in mind on where did they get those water, and thank god we’re all right the next day *good immune system* stopped by Meng Kee Grill Fish restaurant for grilled dishes this time.
Grilled fish (stringray) priced at RM15. Only mediocre, not the best grilled fish we had, but still ok.
Escargot-like Shell Fish priced at RM20. A bigger version of the average French escargot, find it kinda chewy and hard for me, but we still heart the taste. Very flavourful and finger-licking good, with moderate garlicky flavour to savour.
Grilled Squid priced at RM15. This had Chris and my vote as it was exciting. With the right degree of spiciness and highly seasoned, I’m kinda addicted to it! ;P Sharp taste.
Last stop: Let’s indulge in Ice Cream @ Haagen Dazs!
Yes, I suggested having desserts.
Yes, I agreed stopping by Haagen Dazs for desserts.
Yes, I was the only one who didn’t order any desserts
– extracted from xiu long bao –
Yes, we are the ones who ordered desserts after xlb suggested for that, but the dear princess did not. LoL
Ekeng’s scoops of heavenly indulgence for RM22.90. His choices of Belgian Chocolates, Macadamia Nuts and Vanilla Pecan must good as he shared his sugary moments with us. We just have to take a pic of him.
wmw went for the Macadamia Nut Crunch for RM26.90. Soft baked cookie accompanied by 3 scoops of Cookies & Cream, Cookies & Chocolate and Macadamia Nut ice cream along with a lil’ sprinkle of roasted almond nibs, although they claimed ‘generous sprinkling’ in their menu.
Jason’s Flower Blossom (RM29.90) was pretty. He get to enjoy 6 scoops of ice cream, of his choice in a crispy waffle bowl, decorated gorgeously.
Well, as for me, ordered the Cookie Crunch for Chris and I . Priced at RM22.90, we had 2 scoops of Cookies and Cream ice cream, served with chunks of freshly baked cookies, chocolate sauce and whipped cream in a tall glass. A definite choice as I love my ice cream with cookies! A resemblance to one of the treats I had at Delicious, this is available at a much higher price. However, it was one good indulgent!
The desserts put a sweet ending to our food crawl journey and we have to bid goodbye at last. Hope we’ll have more of this in the coming times and….
