Sunday lunch has become a big deal for us these past few years. It’s a time when we meet up with our friends to have lunch together, and recently we’ve been eating around SS2 a lot, since that’s where we’re at. SS2 is a food haven really, you can check out any of the many food blogs that have sprouted out of late.
In recent times we’ve found that we’ve always gone back to these favorites:
Friendship Herbal Restaurant (æ•ä¸€å®) in SS2 – We love the set lunch – RM9.80 gets you claypot meat, vegetables and rice (white or brown).Ironically we’ve never tried the famous coconut chicken soup, we should address this problem in the next visit. It’s a few doors away from Kayu Nasi Kandar. Incidentally, this was featured in last Sunday’s episode of One Day Five Meals.
Melaka Street – Ken brought me there for lunch one day, i loved it. Their set lunch on week days gives the best dishes at affordable prices, but on weekends you can try their equally good ala carte dishes like curry mee and fried rice. Their nasi lemak is quite good, so’s their cendol.
Restoran Lorong Seratus Tahun – Further up the road is this Penang favorite, with their curry mee and char kuey teow. The choice of food is really wide, but stick to their recommended dishes. Lunch crowd is quite heavy.
Chow Yeang Restaurant – This isn’t the original restaurant or coffeeshop, the restaurant has been taken over by the aforementioned Kayu Nasi Kandar, while the famous coffeeshop is now Lim Mee Yoke. The owner of Chow Yeang apparently moved to this endlot a few doors down, it’s now a restaurant and not a coffeeshop. The food is generally good, but the killer dish is their crispy skinned duck. You’ve got to try that one.
So guys, where are we going this Sunday? Not that wanton mee again…?
