Hor Fun

Sweating grease.

imageIt was a pretty quiet day at the office so a colleague and I decided to hop over to Jurong Country Club for a relaxed lunch.

Looking through the menu I realized they had slashed it down big time and unfortunately all remotely healthy dishes like the ‘Beef Udon‘ I had here before had disappeared. What was left were the usual hawker all stars like ‘Nasi Lemak‘ and such. Seeing there was no way to stick to my “diet” around here I ordered the ‘Fried Hong Kong Style Hor Fun‘ that I like a lot but never order not to become my chubby self from the past again but honestly, what choice did I have?

It was a huge portion and tasted quite nice for the first couple of spoons I shoveled down. The noodles were lovely sticky because of the charred soya sauce and the vegetables and sprouts still had a firm bite. At first I left the beef slices aside as I reckoned them to be tenderized. Positively surprised that they weren’t and because they actually were fairly tasty as well I finished most of them up together with the noodles. It was good, nothing special but good but after I had cleaned up my plate I felt pretty bad and guilty and super greasy at that. It’s always good to eat something ridiculously calorie intense in between but this one maybe just was a wee bit too much.

There was some sort of golfing event going on and the staff seemed to be a bit overwhelmed and confused by the crowd. First they brought my colleague’s food long after I had finished mine before then bringing me a second portion of the hor fun I obviously never ordered. Still a scenic view over the golf course from here and a nice change from the usual places we go but knowing now there’s nothing here to find for a light lunch it might be the last time for a long while before I’ll come back to ‘Golfer’s Terrace’.
