Happy Day Chicken Rice @ Permyjaya (Miri)

There are many chicken rice shops in Miri. Some are good and some are franchised outlets.

The Happy Day Chicken Rice is slightly different from so many others. Firstly it is a family business with a simple system of operation. Secondly there are three types of tables - one section is in the five foot way. The second section is near the meat section where you can see the operator work and prepare the meat in the open transparent way. Inside is the airconditioned section where customers can seat in a certain kind of serenity not found commonly in Miri.

Here I found myself sitting with my friends and enjoying the special ambience. As the eatery filled up I could feel that the atmosphere was very different. Customers sat down gently and spoken in soft tones. I did not get those hard vibes where diners shout at each other or try to show the Rolex waters they were wearing. And worst still appetite can be diminished when people start talking very loudly on their huge handphones leaving their wife or girlfriend tweedling their thumbs or perhaps texting on their own.

You will also find that you can order some special vegetable dishes here. The chef is Indonesian and he has been working in Miri for the last ten years!! The food was good especially when my Stir Fried Bean Sprouts came out crispy hot and fragrant!! That made my day.

You find five tables welcoming you at the shop front. This place is still very airy as  a huge open space  is still available. No development yet opposite this block of shops.
The proprietor provides two types of chili saurces for customers - and you can see that he is not stingy with this. Waiters continue to top up the chili sauce as soon as the bottle is half full.




Very nicely and freshly fried chicken pieces. You can choose what you like by  picking the piece and the  proprietor will personally chop it for you. If you like you can have the piece whole. You are charged according to the pieces you order.
Well cooked bbq pork done in the traditional hong Kong style.



The ever popular salad chicken rice (The rice comes in a separate plate)

The place is fabulously clean!!
Very succulent indeed. You  got to try this Honey Black Pepper Chicken..You will want to come back for more. The Honey will call you back!!
Two person can have a very quick lunch and served within minutes!!
Lovely iced three coloured tea.

You must give this outlet a try...It may give you one Happy Day!!

not the straw, but this photo, may be just a hint of pink.

Oh I see..Ann...that is the mayo (home made by the mum of the chef)...ithas a slight pink colour from the chillies added..and may be it is the reflection from the lenses of the camera too...
