Restoran Queen's @ Jalan Peel

After the strenuous hike of Bukit Apeh, we were dread hungry and tired. Iris was craving for steamed fish head, so we thought of asking for recommendation from Mei Kheng. Unfortunately, Mei Kheng told us that there was no great place around Cheras to be recommended at that time. However, Iris insisted on steamed fish head, and so off we went to a stall called Restoran Queen's near Jalan Peel. Were the food catered for the Queens?

I was surprised at the food they offered here, because it has a mixture of Chinese and Indian food. Maybe more hawker stalls should accommodate this kinda concept. So what do we had to have our hungry stomach filled?

Sup Kambing (RM 6)
The soup does come with a generous portion of lamb ribs. Personally I do not really fancy sup kambing. However, this soup managed to persuade me to have a few more sips after my very first sip.

Steamed "Sung Yu" Fish Head (RM 22)
Fresh fish, fresh meat. The meat was silky smooth thanks to the perfectly timed steaming. Meanwhile, the gravy was flavourful and it does come with a very generous garnishing of coriander and spring onion. Great stuff, that even the head does not go into the waste.

Blanched Lettuce with Oyster Sauce (RM 8)
A platter of vegetable to balance our diet.

Roasted Meat (RM 10)
They tasted very ordinary. The Char Siew is not juicy and succulent enough. The Siew Yuk meanwhile was decent, as it offers some crispiness on the skin.

Mee Goreng Mamak Style (RM 4)
This mee goreng tasted good. All the noodles were well flavoured and it does have some sweetness taste, much to my liking. However, it might looked a little bit oily for those who are health cautious. Not the best Mee Goreng I have eaten, but clearly one of the better one around.

We were waiting for the rain to stop at that time, and since we were so tired, we needed some food to keep us busy from falling asleep. The Char Koay Teow stall smelled attractive and we decided to give it a try.

Char Koay Teow (RM 4.00)
The smell from it was a lot times better than how it taste. It lacks the 'wok hei' and tasted bland. Besides, I do not why do they sprinkled some fried onion pieces on top as it clearly messed up the taste of a Char Koay Teow. Disappointed!

In the end we were all satisfied after filling our stomach. Obviously, my pick of all was the Steamed Fish Head of Sung Yu. Apparently, I was told that their Chicken Wings tasted good as well. Just too bad that the stall was not ready to grill us some wings yet.

Atmosphere: 4.5/10
Food: 5.5/10
Price: 6/10
Verdict: Decent food at a decent price.

Location: The corner shop, located directly at the opposite of Carrefour main entrance at Jalan Peel. There was a Shell station too as a landmark right across the street.
