Side Note: I know I have been overly elaborate and “loh soh” (Hokkien: too fussy and lengthy in describing something) in my previous few entries with loads of photos, and heavy reading. I am sorry if this has become a burden for some readers (especially those with snail connections), but I felt there was a need to cover the events in more detail, particularly the special ones. In compensation to that, I shall keep this entry as short and simple as possible.
actually I am just lazing off lately, hence the rare and short update
It was right after the recent Bloggers’ Meet (click) that me, Ivan and Mike went off to this Chinese Restaurant nearby, called Country De Castle, or was it Castle De Country? Hmmm… I was so tired and hungry that I would not bother much about the name of the place. We checked out the menu at the fore front prior to entrance, to make sure that the restaurant is not like one of those places that sell a bowl of laksa for RM18. Sure enough, a plate of something decent with plain rice averaged RM4, agreeably reasonable, hence we went in.
There was nothing particularly striking about the place, simple and straight to the point design, with warm lighting and lots and lots of window panels. Very roomy, but surprisingly not many people were dining that night, though it was Saturday. The place was considered smaller than normal standard Kuching Chinese Restaurants, but the interior was nothing less than what would ordinarily be expected in general.
I had Buttered Chicken
Mike had Black Pepper Beef
Ivan had Mixed Vegetable
I am not too sure about the other two dishes, but I did enjoy my own plate of buttered chicken with rice. The chicken, however was only a chicken wing, carefully chopped into smaller chunks, being deep fried and showered with buttery sauce on the top.
It was indeed a nice place to wrap up the day, after 4 solid hours of bloggers meet at Bing earlier. I would not say anything stood out prominently from that restaurant, but I know I might have future visits there again. After all, this is Kuching, and a bowl of laksa or kolok me will do just fine anytime, anywhere.
