We arrived at May Foong at about 2:30pm on a Sunday, and at that hour, I expected it to be a quiet time. Wrong ! I don’t know when is a proper time for lunch anymore lah..for us, our excuse was a late breakfast, I guess it must be the same for the rest of the folks that made up the crowd at May Fong that day too.
This seemed like an old shop that people grow up/ grow old with – as I saw the friendly banters between the customers and the waiter/waitresses/owners : be it admiring the babies ( I guess they will be bringing their bf/gfs here when they grow up ) or catching up with the white haired aunties and uncles ( I bet they came here when their hair were dark and their eye sights better)
For the 2 of us we ordered rice + chicken + vege + a bowl of wantan
The rice was ordinary white rice, ahh..i would have loved it if this was the oily fragrant chicken rice instead
The chicken was tender and smooth, the oyster sauce was light and not overpowering- letting the fragrant of the chicken shine through.. – simple and tasty..Yummm
The vege tender choy sum was lightly blanched and topped with oyster sauce- again- simple and tasty
The wantan soup was tasty but I wasn’t impressed with the wantan though- the skin was so-so and they weren’t generous with the filing
Plus drinks ( kopi-pheng and nutmeg), the total bill came to RM11.80 – which I think was rather reasonable lah
