Ah Niu Fish Ball Noodle @ Sri Damansara

This fish ball noodle shop looks pretty new from the outside the new sign board and the new paint work. It is situated at Sri Damansara at a road called Jalan Tembaga SD5/2A. It was 12 something in the afternoon and the shop was near full, I guess business here is always good and popular.

I could not try much except for a bowl of dry noodle comprising of yellow noodle (mee) and koay teow.
Of course the fish balls are not only springy but also fresh and tasty.
Thank you to Siew Wah for this recommendation. I will try their fish cake the next round. Happy hunting….

Old Images From Friends Around the World.

The feeling was good and nostalgic when I came back home from my Friday night drinking session after seeing these images. Thank you to Yen Ling, Sahat & Kannika for contributing these 2 materials.

From KK, Sabah, Sahat took the pain to scan and distribute this priceless image of us in our Debating Society during our Form 2 days (1972 if I am not wrong).

Chicken Rice @ Sg Buloh New Village

I have been attracted by this chicken rice shop several times and today I had the chance to savour the chicken rice at this shop located at the bustling New Village of Sg. Buloh.
All these dishes below for a price of RM7.00 which also includes a glass of Chinese herbal drink.

A bowl of soup with 4 fresh fish balls which were not so springy.

The poached chicken was delicious.

The bean sprouts were good and crunchy.

This is the rice of the chicken rice, not that oily as compared to others...

Restoran Tuck Kee - Re-visit for More

Another visit to Restoran Tuck Kee at Taman Bukit Maluri, Kuala Lumpur but this time we were able to try different dishes as compared to our previous visit. We were lucky that Ah Tuck de Boss was around to entertain us.

Sai Toh fish balls were superb, bouncy, and juicy. The feeling of your teeth sinking into the balls was fabulous. What a wonderful fish balls of Tuck Kee.

The next dish was braised sea cucumber with mushroom and broccoli. The sea cucumbers were turgid and lovely when biting the pieces, such a well prepared sea cucumber dish.

A Sang Poh clay pot of a big cat fish (Ling Yue) with lot of young ginger in it was good.

Oyster omelet was not that good, the oysters were over cooked and was a bit too dry.

Sambal squid was above average nothing fantastic about it but palatable.

These Lady Fingers were lovely, with prawn meat on it. The center cores of the Lady Fingers were removed. What a great and delicious plate of Lady Fingers.

Thanks to Ah Tuck for showing me the uncooked fish baits, he even went back to the kitchen to dress up these fish baits.

Deep fried white baits went with the whiskey. I got it wrong on my previous post mentioning it was some kind of dry anchovies.

Pork rib soup with white tofu was delicious, a bit tangy but bloody tasty. It must be the Ham Choy (salted veggie) and the tomatoes in it. I do not mind having it again the next time I visit Ah Tuck.

Smoked Duck finely sliced just to the right taste for the Chew Kooi (Drinkers).
The great and famous Ah Tuck’s Tai Pau quarterly cut with a shower of steamed pork ribs Dim Sum over it. Very good neh. Almost every one of us went back home with a packed Tai Pau.

And a sweet dessert ball for each of us something like Muar Chee on the outside coated with pounded peanuts but with a hidden treasure inside. It’s black, warm and juicy sesame seeds paste. A must try dessert of Ah Tuck RM1.40 per ball but not available everyday.

After our dinner it was time for food sampling???, Ah Tuck fish out with his Siew Mai for the new comers to taste. It was fresh and good.

The sampling continued with Joo Hoo Eng Chye (Penang Cuttlefish with Kangkong). I must say this is the best JHEC in Klang Valley. The sauce was good, the cuttlefish was succulent and it was really tasty despite our tummies were already full to the max…..

One Night in Kepong Baru Wet Market - Pak Thong

Let's dine...... in the wet market of Kepong Baru.

These were participants of the night who came here to Pak Thong Restaurant with 2 bottles of Dimples and expecting a good and memorable evening.

Kow Kia disappeared into the kitchen and came out with this specially fried dish by himself, a dish with oysters, squids, prawns, bean sprouts and eggs. It was something different and good. And the noodle soup on the right is actually Kow Kia’s signature dish his Pork Rib noodle, this one you must try.

Steamed fish head – fresh and tasty and a dish of vegetable stir fried with fermented bean curd.

The pig tail was hot favourite which finishes within seconds, that was how wonderful his pig tail was. On a healthier note a nutritious dish of steamed herbal village chicken. The gravy was heavenly good.

The pork intestines and the “Too Kar Wan” Pork were truly sinful but also truly delicious leh.... Worry later and let's enjoy the food.

The fried “beehoon” noodle with braised pork belly was simply delicious, there were silence from the table everyone was busy eating Kow Kia’s gorgeous food. The whitish jelly dish is a Hokkien delicacy which supposed to eaten together with the gravy of those porky dishes. Simply yummy…..

In deed it was a good evening for everyone, a night of good food and company. Thanks to Kow Kia and his marvelous dishes.

Early Morning Dim Sum @ Paramount Garden, P.J.

6.30am - out of the house to ferry 5 kids to Li Meng school, one of my fortnightly chores, something like this.

7.10am - I was at Paramount Garden having Dim Sum with my Father in-law at his favourite place “Restoran Key Way”. It is the joint where he and his buddies would meet everyday except for Saturday & Sunday. And they will “yum cha” all the way for the whole morning.

Here you see the Boss or Commander of Key Way Dim Sum with a beret cap chatting with my F.I.L. What they were talking I was totally blur, their HockChew lingo is just like German to me…

I saw a picture of “Guy Pu Pao” Chicken Nest Bun and gave it a try for the morning. The last I had such “Pao” was at Pan Ki Dim Sum @ Seri Petaling. A bun with glutinous rice in it.

This place is always packed during the weekends and the pricing is very affordable with reasonable good quality local Dim Sum.

Robert's Char Koay Teow (Penang Style) @ Damansara Kim

Penang Char Koay Teow is very common and easily available in Malaysia. As for Klang Valley, there are only a few good ones serving authentic Penang CKT and one of them is Robert’s Char Koay Teow. I have been eating the one in Damansara Kim but I understand there is another Robert’s Char Koay Teow in Section 17, Petaling Jaya.

Which one is better? Can anyone enlighten me? Thanking you in advance.
