Environmentally friendly civic conscious Restoran Wei Yip

Yesterday night I had dinner at the Restoran Wei Yip again and got surprised. Yes, more than 1 pleasant surprises.

As mentioned, I got some gifts for eating at that restaurant on Christmas day. Yesterday, I received another one - an environmentally friendly reusable all cotton shopping bag from, very handy for shopping and helping us to break that bad habit of using throwaway plastic bags.

It was a Saturday and I remembered that the very responsible Pakatan Rakyat Selangor state government had dedicated Saturday as the No Plastic Bag Day and it looks like Restoran Wei Yip has adopted the No Plastic Bag Day. Ah a civic conscious small restaurant is adopting CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility).

Then I noticed an interesting light fixture:

I asked one of the owners, are those LED lights? I was told they are. Another environmentally friendly feature - low electricity consumption LED lights. How much? RM 60 plus (about USD$18). Wow, there are 18 of them in one fixture. That is 18x60 = RM 1080. Not only that, it seems the restaurant owner made the light fixture himself.

And the final surprise, we were served a small cup of Chinese tea each, no charge. And the cost of a plate of what seems to me to be fried chicken with lettuce for 2 and 2 bowls of rice plus 1 glass iced Chinese tea - RM10.90.

  1. so what if they pull a CSR stunt? Their food sucks man. Not fresh and expensive. Any ordinary coffee shops stall with fish head noodle is better! All my colleagues went there at different times. All come back with bad experience like me.

  2. this shop is terrible. They don't even know how to boil their noodles properly. Soup was lousy too. Other dishes i ordered, no standard at all. pricey as well.
