Cup Rice, consist of fragrantly steamed fluffy white rice, covered with shredded roasted pork and roasted chicken slices.

The white rice is steamed in an aluminium cup (where the name came from), which is later turned upside down before getting covered with all the shredded meats and slices.

This mountain of goodness is then drenched generously with dark braising gravy before serving.

The dish also comes with complimentary soup, served in the same aluminium cup that were used to steam your fragrant rice (when you dine in).

Pickled green chili padi is definitely recommended to go with the rice for extra zings.

All of these good stuffs only costs like RM5, which the portion is big enough for most people.
