Pun Choy .. NOT !!

A post to 'blow some steam'. Short one.

It should at least look like a stainless steel bucket or an olden day washbasin. Like this, this and this. Don't they make you salivate? They all came from the same restaurant, granted.

Pity, a far away restaurant in my companions' book(s).

So a more convenient venue was sourced.

Look what we had.Bill for 10pax: RM662 (I think) inclusive of an extra order of 2 small plates of fried noodles.
Where?* S I G H *

Eek. What a ripoff!

Actually, the Sg Buloh place isn't that far off leh. The only difficulty is in maneuvering thru the kampung.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

eikkk how can they even call that pun choy?

Precious Pea said...

HUH??? That is punchoy??? Wahh..did you complain? Looks more like claypot stew to me. And so pricey!

Tummythoz said...

Sad right?

Majority of companions were quite happy with it. Excuses of maybe different style from different villages/territories/provinces drowned the minority's complaints. *sigh*

Once bitten say bye-bye.

CUMI & CIKI said...

Jackson said...

hu hu hu.. i tried their pun choy before too and the taste is ok but it is way too expensive compared to the one introduce by Masak-masak.

J2Kfm said...

wah ...so mahal one.
got lots ingredients ah?

Tummythoz said...

jason, more like what pea said, claypot stew.

kampungboycitygal, yalor. Noticed those authentic ones don't have thick sauce poured over when heating up.

jackson, our bill included additional orders of noodles. The great pun choy pretender was not too pricey but so fake!

j2kfm, variety is reasonable (4 claypot stew). Serving & taste *show thumbsdown*.
