After staring at the busy restaurant that is SOD from the opposing mamak square for better part of a year, we finally decided to give it a try on one rainy evening. Since it’s a bit of a mess to eat at the open air mamak place.
note: this restaurant is no longer in business
look ma, i eat vege!
SOD stands for Source of Delight, however, the Cantonese Name “吃好的 – Sek Hou Di” directly translate to “Eat Better”, which wouldn’t be a bad name anyway. It is a one of the handful of Hong Kong style restaurants that recently surfaced around the area.
hungry or not?
The menu offers a huge variety of food. However, the shop gets its fame on porridge. Hence naturally, Kerol ordered the crab porridge. I had the wantan mee soup, while horny got the chicken rice. The food was pretty good. My wantan mee has the authentic taste too it, if not a little blunt, which suits me well. The wantan was pretty decent, and the noodle quite nice.
Horny claimed that his chicken rice was just alright. As for kerol, she loved her flower crab porridge. Do note tho that the crab porridge is prepared differently from the one at PJ state that I posted. The former is slightly soupy while the the PJ state seafood porridge is more to the mushy side. I prefer the latter though.
funky twisted straw, empty dishes
Overall the food was pretty good, and there is still a lot of other dishes we have yet to sample, will definately return. There is a 30% discount if you eat after 9:30pm, and for every RM 10 that you spent, you get a RM1 voucher. I don’t know how long they are keeping this offer though.
So you know how to get there, foo!
