Ever since reaching Melbourne, Mr. C and I go to The Glen for when we have cravings for Malaysian food. I usually crave for either Hokkien Mee or Wah Tan Hor. We've tried Grand Tofu and Petaling Street (which I've yet to blogged about) but we like Claypot King, which was initially first intro-ed by NiNi and her boy boy.
In the first week of May, after my girly day out with NiNi, Mr. C, Jo and I went to Glen Waverly for dinner. Glen is an area where you will find lots of Asian food and even places to sing Karaoke! Which reminds me, got to check them out one of these days...
We managed to get a seat outside as it was pretty packed that Saturday night...
From the outside looking in...
Wonderful heater for those who can't tahan the cold weather!
Claypot King at 72, Kingsway, Glen Waverly, Victoria, has two other shops in Box Hill and the city!
Menu shows that they serve pretty authentic Asian/Malaysian food.
Testing out the panoramic function on my Nex 3 - supposed to be famous for it!
Pretty much similar to our claypot chicken rice but the taste is different somehow - less tasty but still good nonetheless!
Good portion of meat for those who must have chunks of meat and rice, definitely a feeling and good meal to have!
This Hokkien mee definitely beats the one at Petaling Street (a shop in Glen, too) ,
pretty much similar to the ones back home in Malaysia!
Jo ordered this Siew Yoke dish... according to him, it is tasty but a tad too oily!
Looks yummy though...
After this wonderful meal, we left and walked back to the car. However, I realised that I left my Nex3 back at the shop on the table!! We hurriedly walked back to the shop whilst my heart pounded with trepidation that the newly bought camera might be lost... forever!
But this being Australia, even in the so-called-Asian area, the staff kept my camera safely and returned it to me much to my heartfelt gratitude! Mr. C, too was really nice not to scold me (especially since this is an early anniversary gift from him to me!) and that's what I really appreciate about him. =)
Overall, the food at Claypot King in Glen is good. I like the service too especially the white haired uncle. I do try to practice my retarded Mandarin skills every now and then. It's the same everywhere, you'll find you have the good and the bad.
Occasionally, you'll get the not-so-friendly staff on their bad days. Even so, I will definitely head back there every once in awhile as the overall dining experience is enjoyable. I even brought my mum there just last week!
So, now you know where to go in Melbourne when you have cravings for some good Asian food!
