DINNER @ FAR EAST CAFÉ, 4½ JALAN TAWI SILI, KUCHING

Deep Fried Soft Shell Crabs In Batter

An evening stroll by to the car after dinner at the Food Junction, opposite the Boulevard, brought about a chance encounter with the former waitress from Ciuxiang Garden. She now works for one of her former junior sous chefs from the old restaurant; this prompted us to return to try this place within the next few days.

Deep Fried Belly Pork With Fermented Red Tofu

What you see here were the recommendation of the waitress. To our disappointment, any remains of Cuixiang was evidently absent. It didn't rise above its Zi-Char facade to bring some signature dishes to differentiate it from others.

Mixed Vegetables

Butter Shrimps

Belacan Midin

I'm sorry to report that the chef didn't bring any flame from its former work place... whatever glimmer of light there was for its food, it certainly didn't shine through during this visit. For a RM75 meal (excluding drinks) was a bit expensive for what was laid on the table. Maybe we had set our expectation on the food too high.

i agree it doesnt look at all outstanding. RM75.00 for five dishes in Kch is considered expensive?

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
