I had Tong Kee’s (唐記) egg tarts (蛋撻) eons ago when they still have a stall in Mid Valley. Until they decided to close down the section, I’ve been craving for it but too hassled to get them all the way from KL. One fine day, I decided to hunt for traces of the Tong Kee’s egg tarts locations on the net. Finally, I found a few reliable sources. One of them which is in Sri Petaling. It was a bakery shop by itself.

So, on one fine day, my friend came bearing fruits…


… it was half a dozen of egg tarts actually. Courtesy from my friend, probably for telling him where he could get his favourite egg tarts, after missing it for so long.

I’d usually rate this around 7.5 to 8. Best thing about Tong Kee’s egg tarts was, even when it’s cold, it still taste so good, probably because the tart content was mixed very well with sugar. Somehow, the skin needs a little improvement. Otherwise, it would always score a 10. This time being a 10, because I got these egg tarts for FREE!

I found out about this flat flour noodle from some food blog. Apparently, the stall was quite famous for the teared flat flour noodle. Very much like the infamous 1 in Klang. Though I preferred the one in SS19 more than the one in Klang, because I like mine dried, mixed with black sauce. One day, my friend came to visit me and wanted to go Mid Valley for a walk, so I suggested to eat here. Since Mid Valley is only a stone throw away.


… my friend ordered a soup 1, with added seafood. See that prawn?


… while, as usual, I’d take the dried one.

Frankly, I’m not a flat flour noodle lover. In fact, I used to hate it quite a lot, because I always have hard time holding them up with my chopsticks and putting them into my spoon, due to the odd shapes they were in. Until I started working at where I’m working at now, there is this nearby flat flour noodle at SS19. It wasn’t all bad actually and it serves dried one.

As for this dried one, the black soy sauce was sweet. Odd, but not all bad. As for my friend’s, he said it was nice to have big prawns in his noodle. His cost only RM5, with 2 or 3 prawns swimming in it.

Oysters

It was my first visit to Pavilion KL today. After a long walk with another 3 fellas, we decided to stop down for a while to rest ourselves. We saw this attractive blackboard with chalks drawings, stating that RM2 for each oyster. It was rather long ago the last time I had oysters. So, what the heck, it wasn’t even expensive, I thought.


… started off with 4 oysters. One for the each of us.


… a plate of cheesey nachos with jalapeño slice.


… a basket of fries as well.


… after we finished the first four, we ordered another 4 morel


… my buddying showing us how to correctly eat the oyster. Firstly, squeeze your lemon…


… then add on plenty of tabasco sauce.

It was fun prying out the oyster from its shell, but the second batch of oysters were too frozen. There were deposits of ice in the meat itself. Would require some time to thaw the ice before eating it.
