It was a dream come true when I saw the shop.
It was fate.
Boh-ean (No fate in Hokkien) with the original roadside stall but fated to try it in its new swanky cafe.
Fate can be cruel. Sometimes cruel enough that it hits you at the 2 places you hurt most. Clarification: places of where it hurts most varies from individual to individual.
For me the first hit was to my tastebuds down to my tummy.
The Rice was dry.
The red Sambal superbly sugary sweet.
The Sambal Sotong (squid) sugary sweet. Squid pieces has a slight odd smell.
The Pulled Tea which usually cost around RM1.20 in similar kecik glass, another diabetic inducement.
Saving grace, the stingy amount of accompaniments of crunchy peanuts with anchovies and the fried chicken drumstick marinated with spices.
Then I further reeled from this:-
Pictures are blurry. Poor hands are still shaky from the shock to my money purse.
