ShenZhen09 Day 1 Dinner & Supper: AirAsia & 福建沙县小吃@益田村

Back from Shen Zhen and I don’t wish to be home. Time was like fast-forwarding for me during the lovely home-stay in Shen Zhen. Well, I would never regret for cashing out my saving to purchase the air ticket and support myself with the limited pocket money.



Precious Pea has raved about Air Asia’s Pak Nasser Nasi Lemak and I decided to have a try.


The portion was rather small. It came with piping hot fragrant coconut rice, sambal, rendang chicken, boiled egg, peanuts and ikan bilis. I was happy with the pre-ordered system because they give priority and privileges for those who pre-order their meals online. Well, no waiting and no starving for me.



Due to the H1N1 problems that the world is facing now, we were not allowed to enter the airport hall once upon arrival. There were the Chinese health authorities with the masks came on board for the one-by-one passengers’ health and temperature checkups. This took about 30 minutes.


The small portion of Air Asia’s Pak Nasser Nasi Lemak did not really fill up my stomach. Me and sis then visited to small little shop selling 福建沙县小吃 for supper. Their business runs almost 24 hours every day!



We had a bowl of hot piping wanton soups 馄饨汤. There were about 12 to 16 pieces of wanton in my bowl. Priced only at RMB 4



A big portion of 拌面 (priced at RMB 4) is something I like a lot. The noodles were covered with scoops of sesame + peanut sauce. It must be mixed up quickly once it is served. However, this is something not everyone can accept it as one may feel it is too greasy and yucky. But, I love it.



Steamed dumpling 蒸饺. The 12 of these cuties are only RMB 4. Cheap hor???


The steamed dumplings are best dipped with their house’s peanut sauce and also black vinegar. I love them with peanut sauce + black vinegar. I myself can finish up ¼ bottle (big) of their vinegar. :P


Finally, a plate of green veggies at RMB 3.


Tummy warmth and filled up. All of these are huge in portion and cost at only RMB 15 which is equivalent to about RM 8 J

the 拌面 sounds like dan-dan mee but actually it is not. a different version of mee. it is not spicy but there is strong peanut and sesame taste.
