Tai Chow at Jinjang

We stumbled upon this roadside Tai Chow stall in Jinjang or rather, my Mum and Dad found this place and we went for our family dinner.

Mum commented that this place was quite clean for a roadside restaurant stall as they were quite conscious of hygiene around the stall and also on the dining tables.

Most of their stuffs were covered in containers or plastic and not exposed.

There's the fish swimming around in the tanks which I carefully sat to position myself to back them as I have one this quirk about ordering or consuming fish when i am staring at them swimming alive and then later, lying on the plate...that's just too gruesome for me to bear and I can just go without fish then:(

We didn't have to wait long for our food to arrive
Our first dish; greens :)
Fried water convulvus with shrimp paste (commonly known as Kangkung Belacan:) - RM7

Not bad; the vege were pretty fresh and crunchy:)

And this was the Fried Mantis prawns with dried chilli (we always order this Kung Pow style whenever we go for Mantis prawns)- RM10

Not bad; but slightly over-fried:p

As usual, fishy for the pickyeater:)
Our Red tilapia fish in fermented bean curd sauce (known as Cheung Jing Fei Chow in Chinese)

Not bad, the fish was definitely fresh and the texture was just smooth (my first time tasting such nicely cooked tilapia:)
And it was really cheap...think it was either RM6 or RM7...

And last, Daddy and bro ordered this plate of bamboo clams...RM10

I am not a big fan of shell stuffs; but it was not bad as well I suppose :p

Total bill was only about RM34-35 if I still remembered it correctly...that's pretty cheap for a family meal:D
