Lim Mee Yoke, Cheow Yong, SS2

Last Tuesday I went to Lim Mee Yoke in Taman Cheow Yong, SS2 for dinner after work with a few friends of mine. It's been quite sometime I didn't have old friends gathering like this.

Don't pray pray, now it's Restoran Mee Yoke Lim Sdn Bhd

Not very often I come to this restaurant. Usually will eat in Section 17 or restaurant near my place in Taman Sri Sinar. Even if I come here, it will be Kayu behind it for Nasi Kandar. It is my friends' first time here, and they ask me what's good. I'm not very sure what's good here too but when it comes to Lim Mee Yoke, then the prawn mee here must be good.

My prawn me with added pork intestine

So, the four of us ordered prawn mee but I added pork intestine to put in more kick. Normal big bowl is RM 4.80 and add in pork intestine add RM 1, which make my bowl of prawn mee cost RM 5.80. True to it's name, Lim Mee Yoke really does serve up a good bowl of prawn mee with the soup full of prawn flavour. It's comparable to the normal hokkien mee (prawn mee) that you find in Penang. The pork intestine is cook up just right and you don't find the funny smell in it that you usually finds if it is not washed properly. One thing I don't favour though, is the amount of MSG in the soup. Damn thirsty wei after eating this. Good alternative for us that can't go to Penang.

Rating: 3.8/5

Mantra Grilled Stingray

A bowl of prawn mee mana lah cukup for four guys like us. I remember I read from KampungBoyCityGal that the grill fish here is good. So, we ordered a grilled stingray for 4. True to their review, this grilled stingray is absolutely marvelous. All my friends find it tasty. The sauce they used is not the hot & spicy type but is rather fragrant & spicy. The vegetable that comes with it is not over cook. Remember to dip the grilled fish in the special sauce provided before you eat it. Absolutely love the sauce. Lime, chili and fresh onion I think, looks like what they use to make 'cincaluk'.

Rating: 4/5

After our meal, we have two big bottles of Carlsberg to wash down our meal. It's been a long time never have beer with friends. Usually only teh tarik in mamak. Good or bad food, cheap or expensive food it is more fun eating with your friends and family.
