12.09.2010 | 經濟便飯

平時出街食, 限限地都要十幾廿蚊一餐係嘛?? 趁呢個長週末, 心血來潮學人去街市買餸, 發覺原來自己整一餐可以好平架噃.. 譬如話,嗰日我煮(係啊, 我親自下廚呀!!)嘅簡簡單單一餐, 就係唔駛十蚊搞掂!! 有少少嘅成就感, 哈哈..

when dining out, it can easily cost you RM20 for a decent meal.. during the long weekend, i had a whim to shop for dinner at a local wet market, i realised how cheap a meal can be if you cook it at home.. for example this simple meal that i cooked (yes, me!!!), was just less than RM10!! i feel very contented, haha..
豉油皇干煸四季豆, 仲有配角洋蔥同甘筍絲, RM1.90咋.. 對於食米唔知米價嘅我嚟講, 兩蚊都唔到係好驚訝哦..
stir fry french beans with onion and carrot in superior soy sauce, cost only RM1.90!! for someone who seldom buy vegetables like me, less than RM2 is just surprisingly cheap eh..

椒蔥雞柳, 五件雞柳RM2.20, 其他佐料係買四季豆時候菜攤送架!! 街市買餸就係人情味呢度好, 可以搭兩條辣椒一棵蔥, 哈哈~~ :D
stir fry chicken filet with spring onion and chilies, five pieces of chicken filet for only RM2.20, spring onion and chilies were free with the french beans from the vege seller!! perhaps this is the nicest thing about wet market, you always can tag along some little freebies~~ :D

洋蔥炒蛋, 一道非常之經典嘅家常餸, 原來RM1.80就有得食!! 出邊酒樓一份大概都要五倍價錢啦係嘛?? 我呢個仲係少油少鹽靈味精好健康噃~~
onion and spring onion omelette, a very classic and common home-cooked dish, and it's done at only RM1.80!! i guess the same dish if dining in a restaurant would cost you more than five times the price right?? still my version is more healthy with less oil less salt zero MSG~~

  14. 几经济。但山城就不是如此情况了。不过,住家菜总比街边饭健康的多。
    博主是个住家男人哦!失敬,失敬。

    ReplyDelete
  15. YES! Definitely a lot cheaper to cook and eat at home...and nicer and healthier too - reduce the oil, the salt and the msg...or don't use, even better.

    Last night, went for evening service in church and stopped for dinner outside on the way back. The whole night, that lingering msg taste in the mouth...and in the end, ceret-beret!!! Must be the excessive use of stale cooking oil in the dishes! And so expensive - 2 persons...around RM30! One meal!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yum! The food sure looks appetising and I'm sure that sparkle adds more taste to it. LOL!

    Good for you that you can cook, SK, and it's a lot cheaper shopping at a wet market too so that's double savings.

    ReplyDelete

  44. I agree cooking your own food was cheaper and your are also sure of its safety.

    ReplyDelete
  45. and one more thing you can easily customize your food.
    for that there will be no wastage.

    ReplyDelete
  46. have a great day by the way

    ReplyDelete
  47. wo... you cook by yourself.

    The fry french beans look a bit old...

    ReplyDelete
  48. Your parent sure feel happy for these dishes expecilly your mummy.

    ReplyDelete
  49. overall, i prefer the chilken fillet with chilies.. hehehe i like spicy food.

    ReplyDelete
  50. i found that your prefer to eat onion. i noticed that all the dishes with onion as well.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Eh Thamby ~ I think the mamak Indian food is still cheapest! I was salivating at your food pixs!

    ReplyDelete
  52. It definitely is healthier to cook at home but not necessarily cheaper. For $3-$4, I can have a 杂菜饭 dish with maybe 3 dishes... I can't do that at home especially when I am cooking for just one or two....

    ReplyDelete
  53. Wah! Nice! I can hardly cook to save my life!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Yes cooking at home can save you $$$!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. So when can u cook a nice dinner for me? : D

    ReplyDelete
  56. 食米唔知米贵,我地个个都系咁~哈哈。偶尔自己煮下都唔错啊,而家出边D野几咁唔卫生。洋葱炒蛋我经常整架,有家乡feel咯有营养又经济!你一定系师奶杀手啦,第一次去街市买菜,D auntie就送辣椒同葱俾你啊~

    ReplyDelete
  57. 哗!你会煮啊!
    还很像样呢!真被你吓到!
    原来你也是‘入得厨房,出得厅堂’哦!
    我喜欢吃住家饭呢,可以自己控制食物的用料,吃得更安心健康,而且又省钱。
    哈哈!你敢‘买鱼搭葱’哦,我不敢向老板要,都是拿去给他算钱的。
    你的菜买到很便宜呢!我平时买没那么便宜啊!不过还是比外面吃的便宜啦!^^

    ReplyDelete
  58. 山城卖的经济饭菜大概三、四零吉左右。我家附近甚至有两块三至两块六,两肉一菜的经济饭菜。
    当然那些高档食肆就另当别论。近来在怡保Jusco附近就来了一座总合食肆,不过是否值回票价就视乎个人口味了。

    ReplyDelete
  62. OMG, you cooked those dishes really?? looks very delicious lah!! i want to eat, can?? hahaha!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  63. i agree with you, cooking at home can actually save more $$$, but then if there are more sharing lah.. if only cook for 1-2 people, maybe eat out is better.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. but one thing is always true - cooking at home sure more healthy and hygiene..

    ReplyDelete
  65. i take a peep back at your photos, all with glittering effects!! haha, funny, but i guess they enhance the "deliciousness" of the food right?? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  66. thanks for the idea.. the dishes looks simple to cook, maybe i'll give it a try during the weekend.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Wow, how I wish my husband can cook like you do :D

    ReplyDelete
  78. @ Shirley @ Kokken69:
    true also, if there are more people of course cooking at home will be more economical.. if eating alone then better go out tabao rice lor, more convenient and less the cooking hassle.. :)

    @ foongpc:
    errr, do you actually know how to cook at all?? i really doubt so, hehehe.. you always go out for nice food, that's what i know~~ you want to try my cooking?? you not scared ah?? :D

  79. @ Rebecca Kheng:
    偶而一餐兩餐自己整係樂趣囉, 不過要我日日煮就係一種負擔囉, 哈哈!! 係啊, 我經過呢餐之後, 先覺得原來出邊啲嘢真係賣得好貴囉.. 哈哈, 我買得少, 個auntie都唔知點收錢, 兩條辣椒一棵蔥, 佢請願送都費事計囉~~ :D

    wkw:
    嘩, 現在還有两块三的雜飯?? 還要是兩肉一菜!! KL這裡沒有囉, 最便宜也要五塊錢囉, even沒有肉也要三塊錢.. 真羨慕!! 哦, 你說那些foodcourt嗎?? 現在的foodcourt也不便宜了, 要RM10一餐的~~
