A few days ago before Xmas, a couple of friends and I went for dinner. Initially we planned for BKT but eventually we went over to Gim Hin cafe instead.
This is a place where most of the USM students will head for dinner other than 'Plus 2'. Both places mentioned serves 'chu char'. I can't seem to figure out the 'chu char' hokkien term in English. Anybody?

There were only 4 of us so we can't order much.

First up "Fu Yong Dan". Fried egg with some spring onions, fine carrot strips, onions, prawns and some diced char siew. Not overly fried and not too oily. Well, I think its a standard dish where people can actually judge if the stall is good or not isn't it?

Next dish coming in would be stir fried mixed vege. There are some cabbage, canned button mushrooms, spinach and so on. Although the veges are only stir fried with some garlic and ginger, the gravy taste good. We ended up slurping it clean LOL

Finally, Marmite Chicken. Today it was a bit too saltish, probably too much Marmite. Yeah you read it right. Marmite with fried chicken. See there is another problem with translating Chinese name into English. What do you call "Marmite Kai Ting" in English?
3 Dishes is too much for 4 person. We were pretty much bloated.

Dinner total = RM23.80
Yeah I busted my dinner budget.
Whatever lah...*burp*

Location:
One of the old wooden houses beside Tesco Sungai Dua.
You can park at Tesco Sungai Dua and walk there.
