Lunch at Wang

Thursday, time to go to a restaurant that I have not been two years ago .......... wow

There's the great wall of china that I have to go pass to reach the Wang Restaurant. They serve chinese dishes.

Friends are asking me why blog has became a food review column in the last few days .......... need to get some other inspiration to write others ........... it will come

Their garden on the way into the double storey bungalow.

Their menu which was nicely done up compared to the last time I was here which was just a wordings and prices on few sheets of laminated papers.

This was the sweet and sour fish fillet. Somehow each fish fillet has lots of fish oil ...... those fattiness part ...... making it not that nice and can't feel its freshness. The tangy sauce was just good to go with the white rice.

This is the Chicken Cubes with Green Pepper. Not a spicy dish and this was superb.

But one bad point about this dish was that the cook used way toooooooooooo much oil. The last few cubes have to wait for its oil to drip off before I dare to put into my mouth ....... you know, it could be cooking oil from China.

The restaurant has a cabinet at the that displays a number of their special dishes. Can't read those chinese characters and the restaurant worker explained to me ...... didn't order from this cabinet as upon hearing the price it almost gave me instant heart attack.

Their restaurant counter really depicts those restaurants found back in China. This is the counter where we paid for our lunch ................ this time for that two dishes, one 2 liter bottle of pepsi, six bowls of white rice and three small mineral water bottles ............... 70 Sudanese Dinar (US$35).
On our way out of the restaurant, we noticed a large bird cage that has a number of bird species. Saw some baby parakeets (do you call them baby ?????).

Yes you are blogging about food nowadays! This Chinese restaurant looks interesting. Too much oil - that's typical of Chinese food. After a meal, I think our cholesterol also rise : )

Melut Fish Market. I miss that place!

Where the fish comes straight from the Nile. Deep fried with local spices. Served with fresh garden salad and some chilli on the side.

After meals there's always the friendly tea lady serving freshly brewed tea and local coffee.

Ahhh perfect ingredients for diarrhea.
