We headed to Section 17 fully intended to spend our day at Tujoh, to have lunch and then get some work done. The plan quickly changed as soon as we arrived. We had to drive past S 11 first before getting to Tujoh and as we were passing we noticed how full the shop was. It was filled with people for lunch and that piqued our interest.
We parked and decided to go ‘kepo’ for a bit and then, we saw this ….
Aaaaaa now I see what the fuss is all about, its Mixed Rice/ Chap Fan. Well, we kindda forgot about Tujoh as soon as we saw this, we decided to forego cafe food and go for this instead.
I liked the variety. Sometimes, when you head to restaurants that offers you mixed rice, the meat offering will be 3 times more than the vegetables but not here though. Here, they offer you a variety of vegetables. The meat section was also extensive. Lots of dishes to choose from.
I liked how they incorporated a modern concept while serving ol’ school, affordable food. S 11 is definitely a neighborhood restaurant, you’d be able to see lots of people from the houses nearby having lunch here in addition to the working crowd. I can see the appeal, the restaurant has a bright, airy feel to it. I liked the cleanliness. Despite many people frequenting the restaurant, it is always kept clean.
Oooo and check this out, you’d get free flow of Chinese Tea and soup. Awesome!
Mixed Rice, 10 ringgit
*** The two plates was actually one. I piled it all up on one plate and then, I requested for an empty plate to transfer some of the items onto it.
As you can see, I took a large serving/portion of each of the the items and all of it cost me 10 ringgit, which I thought was okay. I can see why this eatery does well for lunch. That being said, 10 ringgit may be a tad pricey for some, considering that this is after all Chap Fan, paying 10 ringgit does come across as expensive but it was fine for me. I did take large portion of Mee hoon + Butter Chicken + Long Bean + Tauhu. So yeah, for me, it was okay.
I decided to forego rice and take some noodles – Mee Hoon instead. I also took some butter chicken. This dish was a crowd favorite I suppose, as compared to the other dishes on display, this particular dish was almost emptied.
Ooooo man, that butter chicken was yummy! It was milky, buttery, sweet – totally the kind of dish that would go well with the Mee Hoon, it add a lot of flavor. I can see why this dish is a crowd favorite. I loved it.
I also took some long beans and tauhu. Both dishes were yummy. I especially liked the long beans. It was crunchy and chewy, not soggy and laden with oil.
Wan Tan Noodle, 8 ish ringgit
The Wan Tan Mee was pretty nice too but perhaps 8 ish bucks is a tad overpriced?? I liked the size of the char siew that came with the noodles. Usually, it would be sliced really thin that you’d hardly be able to taste it but not here though, here they slice it pretty thick – a nice change from the usual. Overall, I enjoyed it.
Would I head here again?
Yes, I would. Food was good and it is nearby. So, yeah – I’d be back.
