I had the whole day to myself and was in the mood to drive out and explore. Considering I was already in Sungai Buloh for a breakfast meet, it made sense that I headed to this new eatery for lunch as I had to pass by the area on my way back home anyway. It been more than a year since I was last in the area and from what I can recall, I liked the specific neighborhood Fifty Tales is located it. It had a chilled, relaxed atmosphere with plenty of greens everywhere. It has a row of shops that caters to the folks around the area and this eatery is located within that row of shops. Conveniently, one of my friends lived just across the street. I decided to try my luck and call him in hopes of having some company for lunch and lucky me, he was available for catching up. Yay!
In terms of how it looks, I suppose they were going for the minimalist approach? It was pretty simple .. grey walls, similar tones with the furnitures as well. Nothing fancy or over the top, it was simple and basic. I liked it, there was something appealing about it being kept at a minimal.
Customer service was great. They friendly and welcoming. They cared enough to ask about your opinions and thought without going overboard.
Rice Please, 16 ringgit + OG Style, 16 ringgit + Mansil, 8 ringgit + Chinese Tea, 1 ringgit
We decided to go for one rice bowl and a noodle dish. For the rice bowl, we went with Rice Please and it was yummy. The dish comes with a piece of braised pork, onsen egg, crispy pork lard, rice and some gravy. The dish is simple but tasty. The braised pork was tender and moist, accompanied with the right amount of fats and skin. The pork lard was crispy, which provided a difference in texture to the dish, overall. The onsen egg was a perfect addition, the yolk especially was gooey and moist and when mixed well with the dish, it made the dish wholesome. Ohh, we were given some homemade chili paste to try. If I am not mistaken, it was made using the Lacto Fermentation technique? Yea, it provided a nice ‘kick’ to the dish. It wasn’t all heat and spicyness. No, there was some heat and some tangyness too. It sort of tasted like a mix of chili and lemon? When having it with the rice, it was lovely. Burp!
For the noodles, we went with OG Style which was their available option for dry noodles. It was basically noodles with braised pork and onsen egg. If you fancy something simple yet filling, this dish would satisfy your need. Tastewise, it was pretty good. I liked it.
For drinks, I went with Mansil. I wanted something cool and refreshing. Mansil is a combination of soda with mango syrup and basil. It basically is flavored soda water and exactly what I needed. It wasn’t too gassy and sweet. The flavor was appealing, it was an enjoyable drink.
