01042018 / Jia Xiang Wi Shi Fang

Mom and I just came home from sending Sister off at the airport. We left home at about 3PM for coffee at Kapra Coffee when Sister’s flight is at half past six in the evening. Mom ended up going for a hair wash at the salon on the same block as Kapra Coffee while Sister and I headed for coffee.

Sister and I headed out for breakfast this morning at Jia Xiang Wi Shi Fang before our manicure and pedicure sessions in town. I got Sister to choose between Asian or Western breakfast. She went for the former. She was craving for dough fritter and Jia Xiang Wi Shi Fang happened to be serving it as well.

Without further ado, let me show you what we had for breakfast this morning!

Green Bean Soup | B$1.20

Green Bean Soup might not be available at all time and it was stated on the menu to ask of availability before ordering. Sister had this for herself. There was ginger in the Green Bean Soup as it smelled strongly of it.

Yu Cha Kueh Set | B$2.00

Their Yu Cha Kueh Set came with a piece of dough fritter and a bowl of homemade soybean milk. Honestly speaking, the soybean milk tasted rather odd to the both of us. We were wondering if it was almond milk instead of soybean milk. However, the dough fritter was good in my opinion.

猪油拌饭 | B$3.50

As I had their Lu Rou Fan (Braised Pork Rice Bowl) previously, I went for their 猪油拌饭 this time round. I loved the gravy drizzled over the top of the rice. However, the braised pork belly weren’t good enough for my liking. They tasted strongly of five spice powder and the meat were pretty dry in my opinion.

Gua Bao | B$2.00

Sister was excited when she found out that Jia Xiang Wi Shi Fang was serving Gua Bao as the last one she had was quite some time ago when she was still living in Shanghai. Unfortunately, this didn’t live up to her expectation. She mentioned that the portion of preserved vegetables was a little too much and the steamed bun wasn’t fluffy in texture but floury.

Chinese Pancake with Pork | B$2.80

I got this order wrongly. It was the Spring Onion Pancake which I wanted. These were quite like the 生煎包 in Shanghai but deep fried instead of pan fried. The fillings were a bit salty with little bit of juice oozing out when you took a bite. However, the juice was greasy instead of the clear type. If you aren’t a fan of greasy food, this would be a big no in my opinion.

PS: Jia Xiang Wi Shi Fang is a non-Halal restaurant as pork is served.
