I have seen the signboard for a long time already but the name Mangrove just doesn’t appeal to me. I moved here for two months and am still looking for the perfect hawker centre near my area, Tanjong Bungah. Yet, I have found none to rave about.
Anyway, if I have no fish, prawn also can do (a Hokkien saying that we grab the second best if the best is not available). All the photos are taken with my Nokia N97. Quality is not up to my standard but I don’t have a point and shoot camera and am too lazy to cart the DSLR for meals around the neighbourhood.
So, one late Sunday afternoon, all six of us got into the family car. None of us had breakfast nor lunch yet and it was almost 4 pm. Ok, my little boy did had his lunch but not the rest of my sons and I. We are one hungry family.
My #3 son had some Simon’s pizza. Not sure how it tastes cos he ate it all. RM7.
I had the oyster mee. Not too bad. The stall also sells tai lok meen, char hor fun and hokkien char.
Kampung Malabar Lor Bak. Actually…I have never even heard or try the original stuffs so I cannot comment. But the heh-chee must be nice because my sons ate all four and I didn’t get to sample.
Taman Kuda poh piah. I am not sure if it is the Taman Lumba Kuda one which is the Shangwu school afternoon hawker. But the taste is too plain for me. No crab meat flavour at all.
My eldest son ordered the char koay teow. Three of us ate one plate and we kept saying, ‘Not salty enough’ and yet no one wants to walk to the hawker to bring the soy sauce. So, yeah, so-so as well.
And that concludes the not so nice but ok lah Mangrove Food Court review. It is hidden in Prima Tanjung block of buildings so you are not likely to find it unless you stay there. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to make a trip there but if you are in the neighbourhood and looking for a nicely ventilated, clean and quiet coffeeshop, this is the place. The Thai food sucks. My son ordered pineapple fried rice that he said tastes like cake icing??? WTF?
