Thunder Tea Rice @ Food Republic, VivoCity

I have never heard about Thunder Tea Rice until I read about it at Camemberu's blog.

So the other day when I was at Food Republic Vivo City, I saw the Thunder Tea Rice, I thought I should try it. Hey, I actually like it! All the veg and stuff on it reminds sis and I of korean bibimbab. I had the brown rice version. $4.50



After stirring it, it becomes a tasty and lovely mess.



Oh, this is the yukky part. The green stuff that you are suppose to pour into the rice. When I tried the soup, urrghh..... horrible. Then I remembered, it is suppose to be good. So I forced myself to drink it. I did not finish the soup though. I ate it by scooping a spoonful of soup and adding rice into the spoon. :-P

I finished the rest of the delicious rice without this soup.




Sis did not want to have that rice. She had Brown Rice with Basil Chicken instead. $6.00
She did not enjoy this. She said the my vege rice taste better. LOL....



OK Confess up. Did you finish your vegetable today?

Oh, I had my first try at thunder tea rice here too! Agree, the soup is horrible. I only managed three spoons of it, but I liked the rice, especially the crispy ikan bilis, french beans, and chai poh. :)

i simply love thunder tea rice.. when i saw the heading.. i've to stop awhile to digest what is thunder tea rice - which translate to Lui Cha Fan.
If you come to Kuching, look for me, i shall bring you to the best Lui Cha in town. Coz people who hate Lui Cha, learn to love it after they ate from this stall :)

The soup on its own is not so nice. You have to pour it in to the rice and let the ingredients soak in it and flavour it a little. Tastes wonderful when infused with the ikan bilis and dried shrimp.

But I don't pour in the whole bowl, just half. :)

Hey we must go and try the Geylang one, next to Old Mother Hen, they say is nicer than this Suntec franchise.

Janice,
Which stall? I have colleagues who are Kuchingites. Maybe they know which stall. Kuching = Kolo mee & Sarawak Laksa in my mind. hehe...


Camemberu,
Yes, next outing! :-)

Sis and I, we were still thinking of the Hokkien mee whilst in Darwin! LOL..
