Restoran Okay @ SS2 PJ

We were on our way to another place for breakfast only to find it closed.  As my husband circled around the area, I chanced upon a restaurant by the name "okay".  We even made fun of it saying the food here must be just okay.

Since I ordered some fried "yau char kwai" (Chinese crullers) from a stall nearby (for pick-up later), we didn't want to venture too far away for our breakfast that morning.  So, we ended up at Restoran Okay @ SS2 PJI was surprised to find that the coffee shop was full of people and we had to wait a while before securing a table.  As we've never been to this coffee shop before, I didn't know what was good here, so I just went with what seems to be the busiest stalls.

And one of the busiest stalls here seems to be the wantan mee stall.  Noticing that there was a swarm of people at the wantan mee stall and the fact that the stall owner said (or maybe more like shouted)...must wait one ah, I realised that my wantan mee order will take some time to arrive.  That was when I saw the dim sum stall next to it. 

I overheard the stall owners telling their customers that 'this and that' were already sold out...and it was barely 10am.  On hearing this, I inched myself forward and asked if there were any more dim sum...and she said 'yes', there are still a few types available.

Don't ask me what type of dim sum they're coz I just pointed at whatever's left and the sellers don't have time to tell you what they're either....so, just eat only-lah!

I particular liked this one...some kind of minced meat roll :)

As this post has been lying in my draft folder for a while now, I too can't remember what I ate.  All I remembered was they didn't stinge on the fillings, they were all very plump and they tasted decent and the total price for all 4 plates of dim sum was just RM13.60...quite cheap, don't you think?

Finally, my order of wantan mee @ RM5.50 arrived.  I liked the texture of the noodles and the flavour of the sauce it was mixed in but the "char siew" (barbequed pork) was negligible.

The "wantans" (soup dumplings) were passable too.  It was only after I returned home and googled the place, I realised that this wantan mee stall is quite well known...bingo!....at least I zeroed in on the right stall :D

My spouse had the "siew yoke" (roast pork) rice @ RM5.50.  This is the rice (which had the colour of a good chicken stock) with the complimentary soup....

......and this is the siew yoke.  *Holy crap*  That's like 17 pcs of siew yoke for RM5.50!  Okay, okay, taste wise...it was just okay but the price and portion were more than just okay.....get my drift!

This was my son's "char siew" (barbequed pork) rice also @ RM5.50.  *Holy crap 2* Just look at the ginormous amount of char siew.  I think these 2 plates of rice can feed a family-of-four....wakakakaka!!

My Personal Opinion

I do agree that this coffee shop is aptly named....the food here is just okay (the ones I've tasted anyway but maybe others are better than okay) but the prices and portion sizes are certainly more than okay.

I didn't know (until later) that there's a good Penang-style curry mee here...ah, well...some other time, perhaps.

If you're looking for a budget meal (with a generous portion) to fill you up, especially during the 'dry' month end :'(.....this could be just the place!

  1. So they win by serving decent portion instead of delicious fare. That's wonderful, we need more of such eateries around!

    1. Ya, I agree coz there are people who eat for the sake of filling their tummies...and taste is secondary.

  2. Brings to mind the traditionalists - "Okay is not o.k.!" I think it's American so the British would not want to hear of it.

    Dim sum looks pretty okay all right and I'm all into the wanton soup. Wow!!! Wanton mee is RM5.50 now??? The pork belly's so fat....and I guess that's the sauce not the oil on your son's char siew. Shudders!!!

    1. Practically most types of mee cost RM5.50 now!! It's pork belly, of course got fat-lah. You don't like sauce on your char siew?

    1. I think it was a foreign worker chopping the meats. When the boss realises they have been giving out too much, then they'll kena :D
