I woke up wanting to cook beef stew and "Cencaru Sumbat" but decided to eat out instead.
I drove to Bestmart in Taman Nusa Bestari 2, Johor Baru, to have the "Lei Cha" aka "Ham Cha", a Hakka vegetarian comfort food.
The 百家乐客家擂茶 at the Bestmart food court serves one of the best "lei cha", in my opinion. The green tea is made from a mixture of leafy greens and nuts blended together.
Some like to pour the tea into the rice, which is underneath the radish, beancurd, long beans, cabbage and spinach, all nicely chopped and diced, and sprinkled with white sesame seeds. But I prefer to savour the rice and tea separately. I always tell the lady boss to exclude the peanuts, which is one of the ingredients of the dish.
This is how the dish looks like after you stir it. Patrons can choose white or brown rice.
This is the stall. The meal is affordably priced at RM5.
From Bestmart, I drove over to the Ramadan Bazaar outside the Perling Mall.
So I bought the ayam penyet instead.
Inside the Perling mall, there were several stalls selling a variety of head scarves and other fashion wear for the Hari Raya celebration.
When I got to my car, it was so jam-packed with vehicles, the only way to get out of the car park was to drive in reverse to the exit.
Well, that was my day. How was yours?
