price-increase.jpg

Everyone’s talking about the state of economy in Malaysia, so I figure I’d join in the bandwagon.

Petrol price has increased. Chicken too. Which means …. price of food too. I read that even the price of food in school canteens have increased their price.

So what about us foodies? Guess we’ll have to make more money to sustain our interest in food blogging.

Here’s a pop quiz for you. With RM10.00, where can you find a healthy, nutritional square meal? KFC ? I doubt that’s in the ‘nutritional’ category. Well, you could always opt to go for your common “mixed rice” or more popularly known as “chap fan” but dining ambiance is hardly part of the package.

Here’s one you could consider.

For wholesome meals, try Ah Yip Herbal Soup. Ah Yip serves a very extensive list of more than 40 different types of traditional Chinese herbal delicacies such as Ginseng soup, Bird’s Nest, Abalone and Cordycep herbal soup. Aside from herbal soups, Ah Yip also offers a complete meal of rice, chicken, and other dishes for diners.

Ordering from the menu is effortless as well. Usually, chinese herbal soup outlets such as these would probably serve their menu in chinese which is a hassle for non-chinese reader like me (banana!). But Ah Yip Herbal Soup has prepared their menu in both chinese and english with information that describes the benefits of the individual soup such as improving eye sight, refurbishing lungs, provides energy and such.

As for the price, it ranges from RM6.90 for soup a la carte and RM9.90 for meal set which includes a soup, rice and chicken with sauce. Of course, the more benefit the soup provides, the more pricier it gets …. i.e. the American Ginseng. Some soup can cost up to RM99 a bowl.

Here are some of my favorites.

Dry squid lotus root soup
Scallop Groundnut Soup
Chinese Cucumber Stew Chicken Soup

Generally, I would recommend you to try out this place. As mentioned, prices of practically everything has increased due to unforeseen factors but that shouldn’t stop us from dining out. Places like Ah Yip Herbal Soup still provides a decent meal for a fraction of the cost of eating out these days. I only hope they do maintain their prices.

    I love their herbal duck soup and also salted veggie soup! At times, so much convenient to eat here than to boil at home. But i find the set lunch portion a bit too small. The last time i went, 3 TINY pieces of chicken meat only.
