Thank You, David!

This evening, I received a call from Yan (Pizza Boy).

"Eh, what are you doing? Free or not?"

"Nothing leh. Free. Why?"

"Wanna go dinner? David treats!"

"Hah? David wanna treat? Cannot be lah!"

"Serious! I pick you up at 5:50p.m."

The clock showed 5:30p.m. already and I quickly changed my clothes and waited for Yan.

We went to the very same restaurant which I celebrated my birthday last year. However, this time, it was what I didn't expect! Read on...

Snow Crab with Sweet Chilli and Egg Sauce!

They actually ordered a snow crab! You know how expensive is a snow crab? It's so expensive that I don't think I'm going to order this dish any time sooner! The snow crab was fried with sweet chilli and egg sauce. It had more meat than the normal crab and the meat tasted sweet and tender. Out of 5, I would like to give it a 4. ;)

Man Tou (Deep Fried Buns).

The waitress recommended us this man tou to be eaten with the sauce. It's a bit crispy outside and soft inside. Good stuff!

Don't-know-what-chicken.

Yan ordered this don't-know-what-chicken. The chicken strips was well mixed with batter before they were deep fried. It tasted alright but can still be improved.

Cuttlefish Deep Fried with Salted Egg Yolk.

I couldn't remember what is the actual name of this dish. I had it once when I was having my birthday dinner here. It's one of the recommended dishes from me.

Look at all those dishes...

Two other dishes that we ordered were Kangkung With Belacan and Sizzling Toufu. Nothing to shout about for this two dishes.

The boss, Black David.

This is the boss who paid for the bill. Don't ask me how much was the dinner. Looking at the above photo with his middle finger up (censored), you can roughly guess the dinner wasn't cheap! Anyway, thanks a lot for the dinner, David! :)

Finished almost everything.

I think everyone around the table had not tried the snow crab before until today. It was a whole new experience for us. No doubt, it was a sumptuous dinner.

From left to right: Yan, David, Qi Wei, Firman, Kok

I think this was a sort of farewell dinner for Yan. Yan is going back to Singapore for good. All the best to you, Yan! Do keep in touch!

Again, David, thanks for the snow crab!:)

P/s: Sorry, guys. I know I'm supposed to continue on my Adelaide Day 4 but this snow crab resisted me to do so. Anyway, it's definitely going to be my next post. :)

Kok, everybody was smiling in the last photo except David wor. Must have broken his bank account.

Lovely food.....I think perhaps about AUD$280.

David is your boss or Yan's boss? Very generous boss. :)

ubi, what restaurant is that? is the food nice? maybe can bring my parents there.

Kok said...

Aunty Judy: Hahaha! Yea, I noticed that too!:P Poor David...

Aud$280? Hmm...probably that price because of the snow crab.

David is my "boss" for that night because he treated us a dinner. Actually he's my senior in uni. ;)

Dr. Joy: When's your birthday? I guess all your Goddess will celebrate it with you eh?

bamboo: It's a "Singapore Restaurant" near Billy Lee at Northbridge there. The food is just so so lah I guess. Maybe can find better Chinese restaurants.

Aunt Judy is so observant. She never misses a chance to suan people hor. hahaha....

A Singaporean restaurant ah? The food looks yummy wor. Snow crab is expensive one. Did the waitress recommend it? No wonder David has no smile on his face. ^-^

WokandSpoon said...

Yum! love your food photos!! The crab looks so finger-licking good!

Kok said...

eastcoastlife: Don't play play. Aunty Judy just acts MCC sometimes. She actually very the lihai one leh! hehe.

Yea, snow crab is very expensive. Don't dare to eat also if David didn't treat. The waitress doesn't recommend to us. Just that, David said, give it a try. So we ordered. haha! She did suggest the way to cook the crab. That's actually Singapore style of cooking crab eh? haha! Poor David...:P

wokandspoon: The crab! Waiyooo...I don't think I'll have the second chance of eating it. hehe. Thanks for the compliment bout the photos. :)

Judy said...

Kok, I lihai?? No lah. Mmm, maybe a little bit but hor....psssttt...not as lihai as East Coast Life lah! Wahahaha. I think if you put ECL and I together, the whole of Singapore will cabut liow! :D

Tumpang lalu ah, I want to tell ECL something. Yeah hor, I think my parents should have named me Suan Suan instead of Bee Bee! Wahahaha.

Kok said...

Aunty Judy,
I know you lihai one lah. Don't malu malu lah. hehe. Yea, can't deny. East Coast Life really super! :P

Put you and East Coast Life together in Singapore? I think not only all Singaporeans cabut, Malaysians also cabut ah! hahaha!

Huh? Aunty Judy, you're name is Bee Bee? :P

Sasha said...

Muminmiri said...

Nice hor to be treated to a good dinner and no need to pay anything. I also want. :)

Kenny Mah said...

What a generous "boss" --- wish I had a senior like that in my uni days. Maybe if I had been a more good junior like you, I might have gotten more treats! Ah well, too late for that now...

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

that snow crab must be wat AUD200?

wonda said...

Just ate snowcrabs in a restaurant after the burial ceremony of my FIL. Guilty of the rise in my cholestrol. Have to confess to the doctor when the result will show a high cholestrol level after the blood test on this Saturday

wmw said...

So, you took the last photo after David paid the bill and that's why he wasn't smiling??? Hee hee....

xiu long bao said...

This meal must be super expensive! I recalled having dinner like dis, with different kinds of dishes in a chinese rest bck in aussie. The result? 10 of us were being potong leher for A$300 @_@

Shionge said...

Good food and good company is the best Kok :D

Kok said...

yenjai: Brother's Day mah! :P

sasha: Cheeks can full one meh? Me not full lah, stomach pecah only. haha!

muminmiri: You also want? You can wait till I work, then, maybe I'll treat you a dinner. How bout that?;)

kenny: Ya, it's hard to find such a good senior. Maybe it's just one out of a hundred. Nolah, I'm not a good junior. haha! You don't have a chance to be a nice junior? Never mind, you can be a nice senior to me too, can? *wink* ;)

joe: Suprisingly, the dinner is less than Aud$200 including the crab! I just found out from David. Cheap huh?

Aunty Alice: Alamak, crabs will increase your cholestrol level? Hmm... you should watch what you eat oh. Next time got snow crabs, don't eat. Call Kok to help you. :P

wmw: hahaha! How come you know I took the pic after David has paid the bill? hahaha!

xiu long bao: I just found out from David that the total bill was less than Aud$200. I think it's considered cheap when you have a snow crab as dish.

shionge: I prefer good company. hehe. That's the best. :)

jono said...

ive had snow crab a grand total of........7 times in perth so far. The chilli tomato egg style u had is still the best.
The dishshould be about AUD 150.

jono said...

I think david bluffed you. Or unless snow crabs are in season now cos its seasonal price.

Kok said...

jono,
I heard Danny says the deep fried is still the best? The price is about Aud$170 like that lah.

Muminmiri said...

Kok
I printed out to show as proof to remind you to "chia" me when you start work, yah!!

Kenny Mah said...

Hah! Good comeback, bro. Ok, come down to KL/PJ and this good senior will take you out makan too... er, have to kacau some floggers for recommendations on where to makan 1st, naturally. :D

eastcoastlife said...

oi... you two look me so up! I'm just a little woman. ^-^

hohoho.... I can't imagine Judy and ECL together! Explosive!

Judy is called Bee Bee (美美)! We shall call her suan suan (酸酸)hahaha...

jono said...

Eh if the price of the crab is 170 how come total less than 200???....u enginner kah? ROFL. I think the deep fried one danny is talking about is soft shell crab. Its not snow crab. Soft shell crab the shells can be eaten. Dat one oso burn wallets man.

Kok said...

mum in miri: No need to print out lah. Just remind me can liao. haha!

kenny: Hahaha! Set! I'll visit you whenever time and money permit. :P

eastcoastlife: You might be a little woman but you're the chilli padi! haha!

I also cannot imagine both you and Aunty Judy together. Don't know what will happen. :P

Serious? Aunty Judy is called "mei mei" meh? hahahaha!

jono: Nolah, $170 for the whole meal including the crab. Quite ok right, the price? Noleh, Danny told me is deep fried the snow crab. Soft shell crab? That one expensive lehhh....
