Spicy Bee Hoon Soup with Beef Balls
I had to go run some errands but on the way home I stopped at 99 Seafood and bought some nasi lemak! I only intended to buy one for $2.90, but the owner asked if I wanted the last two for a discounted price of $5 for the both of them. It didn't take me long to agree!
416 William Street, Northbridge
I made a reservation for 7:30pm and we arrived promptly on time, only to be told that the people who were assigned to our table (first service) had arrived an hour late for their reservation and so our table was not available.
Not happy Jan.
The manager was extremely apologetic and asked if we wanted to take a seat (five of us at a square table meant for four) while we waited for him to clear a table for us. We sat down and waited probably just under half an hour for another table to pay their bill and vacate their table so we could move to it.
I have to say, we weren't impressed with the people who arrived an hour late. By rights, they should have been told to wait for another table to become available since we would be arriving for our reservation before they would finish dinner, or told that they had to be out before we arrived so that they could have the table ready for us. I think what really saved the night was the efficiency of the manager and the professional manner in which he dealt with the situation. He wasn't rude or patronising. Very friendly manner.
I'd already looked at the menus online and everyone was happy to go with one of the set banquet dinners.
They had little pieces of taro in them and really delicious crispy skin.
We wanted a prawn dish so we ordered this extra.
Afterwards, we walked down Beaufort Street and had coffee at Exomod Coffee House at 615 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley.
