只是很想提醒自己和其他对味精敏感的朋友们小心咯~ Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
A very forgetable dinner i had...
so this serves as a reminder for myself and those of my frens who are either allergic or sensitive to MSG ~

so this is where we had our dinner...
i had been to this place many years ago
but it wasn't as bad as my trip this time aroundPhoto Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

清炖鸡汤 (RM11):
*后来的后来...不太确定是不是味精搞的怪Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Double Boiled Chicken Soup (RM11):
very clear and sweet soup...
the only tasty dish for our dinner ~
*but then again maybe the sweetness comes from MSG

上海小笼包 (RM8):
为什么一点都不酸的? Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Shanghai Pork Dumpling (RM8):
very thick skin type...
and funny tasting vinegar something i do not believe that can go wrong
why is the vinegar not sour at all ?

金银蛋浸菠菜 (RM16):
吃的时候好像吃沙一样...粗粗的 Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Poached Spinach with Salted Egg and Century Egg (RM16):
looks good but sticky and salty veggie...

糖醋鸡球 (RM17):
Sweet & Sour Chicken (RM17):
the most expensive dish we had and tasted the worst for the evening
the chicken was thickly coated with flour and it was like chewing savoury chewing gum
btw the chicken pieces was not thawed properly...
even the sauce is yucky like a layer of plastic ~ Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

中国茶/Chinese Tea = RM1
白饭/Plain rice = RM1

吃到差不多的时候 (其实是真的吃不下口啦)
舌头都麻了... 都是味精惹的祸 Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
at the end of the dinner i had very serious "Chinese Food Syndrome" and my tongue was numb for the rest of the evening... Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
