Wonderful Pork Noodle @ OUG Wet Market, KL

I have been craving to visit this stall @ Sun Sea Restaurant for a long time, the last time I visited this place would be at least 8 years back. I recognized that Teochew man, he used to be only helping in the preparation of the noodles. Today he is the main cook!

The business looks better than 8 years ago, they are now armed with more helpers and the production line is so busy and fast. You don’t have to wait like 45 minutes as in Pomander (Subang Jaya SS15).
I love this pork noodle because you can get prawns and squids in it and most importantly it’s tasty. Since I have not been to this place for so long, I ordered one with extra topping and it’s RM8.00 for this bowl.

It was really a satisfying meal and a worthwhile return to Sun Sea Shop. I would recommend you to go there after lunch hour but not after 3 o’clock….

Pearl Blossom Restaurant @ Platinum Walk, Setapak, KL

Platinum Walk is generally comprises of 2 blocks of building, the Front block & the Back block. The Front block is vibrant but not the Back block, hopefully in time to come, the Back block will flourish, if not I really pity the buyers of these properties.

I have been to Mali’s Corner @ the Front block for Char Koay Teow "de basah" version and now I am here again in Platinum Walk for a “Tai Chow”.
Pearl Blossom Restaurant is strategically located at the Front block with very good exposure and it has successfully attracted me to visit it.

Braised duck & egg was of average grade only.
Steamed red Jenahak fish with assam sauce, could have been better if it was served warm and steamy

This was a promotional Tofu (RM6.80) – with blanched Pok Choy and oyster sauce topping. What do you expect for a dish of 6.80?

Kailan Veggie fried with Tow Foo Kan – I enjoyed this this dish.
The foods were all served at the same time, some of the dishes could have been cold. I would prefer it to be served dish by dish as we can slowly enjoy the food and the drinks.

Chef Chan Seafood Restaurant @ SS2/10 PJ

There are so many eating outlets along this road of SS2/10. Not too soon, it is going to turn into a Glutton Street. On one end is “Kayu Nasi Kandar” and on the other end is “Okay Restaurant”. Some have opened and some have closed shop, some are still around. This will be a case of the survival of the fittest, if the food is no good, then bye, bye, its Sayorana… and new ones would take over and try their luck.

Together with my in laws, we ventured into a new outlet “Chef Chan Seafood Restaurant” (formerly used to be an herbal soup shop). Despite the good crowd in the shop, the service was reasonably good and fast.
Special Pork Belly cooked with leek in a clay pot was something extraordinary and delicious. Apparently, this is their signature dish.

Tang Po meat in clay pot, was not as good as I expected. A little bit dry & plain.

The steamed dumplings for the Tang Po dish.

Another signature dish Tofu with thick crab meat gravy, mushroom and broccoli was interesting and good.

Another must order sweet and sour pork for the boys.

A clay pot of glass noodle with Chinese cabbage, mushrooms, carrot, tow pok. I find it dry and oily.

Steamed Red Snapper with soya sauce was great, it must be the good soya sauce they used. It was indeed a yummy red snapper.

Fried chicken with special mint sauce, the chicken tasted flat.
Everyone complained that the dinner was over priced and has no valid and good reason to come back again. Well, if that is the case, I hope the owner could do something about it in order to be part of this Glutton Street of SS2/10.

Fabulous Prosperity Burger is Back !!!

It’s a petrol station, with a McDonald’s outlet including a drive through, and it’s a supermarket and also a post office. All these outlets in one building and this are the first of such petrol stations in Malaysia. And the first is at Taman Setiawangsa, Kuala Lumpur. This concept has been very successful and well accepted by the consumers.

Every year end and until Chinese New Year is over there will be a promotion by McDonald’s, the great Prosperity Burger. This year McDonald’s has introduced a new Chicken Prosperity Burger besides the normal Beef Prosperity Burger.

The set of Prosperity Burger comes with curly fries and a soft carbonated drink. The curly fries are also fun to eat, the fries are crispy and yet soft in the inside. May you be prosperous after eating this burger in the coming year……

This has been my favourite burger at McDonald’s. I like it because it is juicy, spicy and tasty. The spicy black pepper sauce is fabulous, the beef is succulent & tender and the raw onion supplementing the great taste of the burger. The first bite is the best part of the meal, truly heavenly and satisfying. But not the last bite, cos I find it a bit too much of it at the end.

Delicious Fish Ball Noodle @ Ayer Panas, KL

Kampung Baru Air Panas was an isolated Chinese New Village situated at Setapak which has now merged with other surrounding developments such as Genting Klang, Sri Rampai and Titiwangsa and has becomes a popular place to market our daily consumables. It is now easily accessible from all areas. The most prominent feature used to be the famous hot spring which has now becomes a history.
Kedai Kopi Wah Chue is an old wooden shop sited at the corner of Jalan Ayer Lombong, near the DBKL wet market. The fish ball noodle is very popular among the locals and as usual business is brisk.
A wet version of noodle with extra topping of fish paste, small fried fish balls (but succulent in the inside) and fish cake. The soup is slightly salty but it was delicious.
“Kon Loh mee” noodle (dry version) with fish cake.

Special Clay Pot Dishes @ Subang Village

“Chong Fue Bak Kut Teh” is located at the main road of Jalan TUDM of Subang New Village.
This is my 2nd visit here and the last was December 2007, it was nearly 2 years ago. Most of the dishes are served in clay pots, be it noodle, Bak Kut Teh, soup or their lovely fish dishes.
A pot of braised pork Bak Kut Teh was good.
This dish of a tilapia (black) was yummy and juicy with plenty of cut onion in the pot.

Mee Suah (rice flour noodle) in clay pot with fish balls, lean meat and tow pok was delicious and refreshing when sipping the tasty soup.
I would recommend to all foodies to try this place if you happened to be in this neighbourhood and looking for food. Try it and let me know your verdict.
