food. what is cheap and good? mine is 'ayam penyet' although i find it difficult to find where i live now. but there is one restaurant here which serves good 'ayam penyet' which i never fail to patronize regularly. the place is always full with the afternoon diners but it's worth the wait. back in indonesia, it is served on banana leave on a wooden plate-like (not sure of the english version) with steaming rice, home-made hot chilli-sauce or sambal and raw cabbage, raw long beans complete with a piece of chicken, duck or freshwater catfish. i prefer chicken and mine is usually roasted. what is cheap and good food for you. let's hear it from my dear myLotters. have a nice day ahead:)

Hey, I had no idea just what ayam penyet was but I just looked it up and it looks absolutely delicious. I would like to say that chicken curry from a Chinese Restaurant is something that I quite enjoy to have but it cost like nearly 20 dollars to have. Is not that cheap nor that pricey but that is all I can think about right now. $-MrDollars-$

Chicken curry sounds delicious to me too. If you really love the food I think it's worth to spend $20 on it.

Hi Tom, Mine, is the Chopsuey (Chinese Zasui), it is a mixed pieces, consisting of meats like chicken,pork,beef,shrimp and cooked with vegetables. It is cheap and healthy food fit for a diabetic person. I just love the idea of staying healthy and not spending too much money. I am making use of my resources, like for the vegetables that I can only pick them at the backyard. And the meat, I can buy them cheaply at the market; a 1 kilo of pork meat will only cost you $2 and consumable for more or less 1 week. It is not necessary to add more meat just a little sliced of it will make the Chopsuey delicious.

hi mack, oooh my mouth waters now. based on what you described it's called 'chap-chai' here, i think it's a fukienese dialect which literally means 'ten vegetables'. and it's great to have a backyard where you can plant and pick these vegetables. i'm convinced that good, delicious, healthy food does not have to be expensive. great. thank you for sharing mac. have a nice day !!! :)
