12 Restoran Lee Heong, Jalan Ipoh (Taman Kok Lian)

Weekends are home-cooking breaks for me! This is what we had for dinner the day before.

We haven't been to this restaurant in awhile since our food choices of late stray towards hawker fare, but we thought a proper meal at a roadside Chinese restaurant would make a refreshing experience for mum-in-law (mil) on this particularly long day of lazing about the house.

She has zero cleaning, laundry and ironing to do - I get it all done for her before she finds the opportunity to. And prepare her meals throughout the day. Basically, she never has to get off the sofa! It seems right that she be pampered during her short visit with us, but I guess it would bore her soon enough too. So I make sure that hubs and I take turns to bring her out for a walk to buy the newspaper daily. Staring at the TV for long hours is not anyone's cup of tea, I believe!

This outing is a welcome change from our Monday to Friday routine. We ordered a tofu dish. It was attractively presented. The first words out of our lips was 'wow..'.  My tummy grumbled in hungry anticipation, but my mind said - Take that photo! Take that photo!  I dedicated a minute to photo-taking. Lol.

The tofu was fried in an eggy mixture and then slathered with thick delicious salted egg yolk gravy.

Then came a simple soy sauce steamed fish and stir-fried greens. Both were typical dishes that you can find in any Chinese restaurant around KL, and taste-wise is not exceptionally different from one another. This was, in short, yummy as expected.

The meal came out to RM64 for the three of us. The open ambiance made it a lively place to eat.
