This place was a pretty good one, amidst the bad lighting conditions. The clay pot pork belly with salted fish was quite nice. PG was asking for all lean meat at first, but the lady boss assured him that it has to be taken with fats on the meat and no one asked for lean meat only for such dish. I was chuckling away at my table corner (though the table was round, somehow I managed to find a corner for myself). The gravy was sweetened though. Then the stir fried kai lan was amazing. The taste was just right, not too salty and the feeling of healthy dish as it wasn’t too salty like other places. I felt so contented with it.

Hot plate bean curd was nice, but I still preferred my favourite hot plate bean curd laden with superb mushroom sauce. Only to be found in Subang Hi-Tech. Finally, when the fish was served, I was almost blinded by the acidic vapour billowing up from the plate. The soup was super sour and super salty at the same time. A pH2.5 kind of soup. DL loves it, I can’t take it any longer. I thought I lost my tongue from the corrosion.

A place worth another visit, maybe not going to challenge the lady boss for an “extra sour” Teo Chew style steamed fish.

Our plans to go Wong Mee Kee’s roasted pork has failed again today. After our trip to Direct Photo, Wong Mee Kee was on the brink of closing shop at around 1pm+. PG then recommended this roasted pork, which he claimed was nice, right opposite of Pudu Plaza. Since it was nearby, I have no complain on it. Better than having yong tau fu again.

Firstly, the roasted pork wasn’t up to my expectation. I guess PG must’ve been at the home town for too long, it corrupted both his mind and tastes. Time to send him to Mooi Mooi to refresh his taste on what’s considered a good roasted pork, or even Medan Selera in PJ Old Town will do too. The roasted pork was a bit run air (soggy) on the skin, reminded me of my home town’s roasted pork style, which I don’t like. The roasted chicken on the other hand was rather nice though. Despite being a roasted chicken, the meat was tender and moist. Felt like steamed chicken. But then again, I don’t really like steamed chicken anyway. The BBQ pork was glazed with abundance of sweet sauce. It was nice but not awesome. Then the roasted duck, which I preferred not to have it. It lacked the herbal taste, just plain roasted duck with not crispy skin. Bean sprouts was torrent with pepper.

Didn’t managed to catch the stall’s name, even PG doesn’t know. It doesn’t really matter as I won’t go there again anyway.

PG begged me for lunch today, sort of, because he was in Toyota waiting for his car to be serviced. Something which took him a whole day. Since I’m so nice, so I decided to pick him up from there and let him join my colleagues for lunch. At first, I thought I’d only get a few people from my side and go for lunch, later it turns out that there were 9 of us in a total of 2 cars, hogging this place. This was the first time I’ve been here with such large group of people.

This was downright the worst yong tau fu I’ve ever tasted. The chilli sauce was nothing and the sweet sauce was bad too. The bean curd skin with fish ball was bad too. Don’t even get me started on the soup. The bad ass-ness of this was comparable to the chee cheong fun stall in SS2 by the road side. They were both probably operated by the same people or relatives to each other.

I was glad my plate of fried kuey teow was rather nice today. Despite the egg yolk was punctured, as usual. ALGJ got a bad copy as she got her plate of fried kuey teow much earlier than me. I let her tasted mine, she said mine was better, while hers and LGFL’s copy was charred badly. I thought the fried kuey teow fat lady has finally got her act together by keeping up with her consistency. I guess she still flops once a while. Fortunately, she doesn’t flop on my plate. Kudos!

Fried bean curd was nothing to shout about. The taste was mediocre. The good thing was, the fillings didn’t spill out as I pick it up with my chopsticks. Unlike some fried bean curd place, they put mines in it. Once you had your chopsticks over it, the fillings will explode right onto your face. The same sweet sauce was used on the rojak as well. It was lacking in the prawn paste taste that I preferred. The crackers were nearly non-existence. Too precious to give more, perhaps.

Hidden behind the hustle and bustle of Jalan 222 Petaling Jaya, I always wondered where is this famous nasi lemak is located. I’ve been hearing my colleagues and friends raving about it, little that i know that the famous nasi lemak is sold everywhere in this food court. Basically there are 2 major `suppliers` for the nasi lemak which also operates in this same food court, the red and the blue. That is how you get constant supply of forever `warm` nasi lemaks as they only pack as of when those put on the table are sold out !

Apart from that, they also serve some good mutton soup and otak otak, which I think very good condiments to go with your piping hot packet of nasi lemak.

The red labelled nasi lemak which IMHO, the best served here.nasi-lemak-red

Red labeled Nasi Lemak, which served with 1/2 hard boiled egg and sambal with crunchy anchovies.red-label-opened

The blue labeled nasi lemak…..wet spicy…taste just like our schoolday’s canteen 50 cents nasi lemak.IMGP0216nasi-lemak-blue

Sup kambing, rich n thick, nicely spiced with a huge tinge of pepperIMGP0205

Otak otak served here are also supplied by 2 different stalls. I did not try them as I always get a stomach upset whenever i put otak otak into my stomach 😦IMGP0213IMGP0208

Conclusion is, the red label nasi lemak rawked overall while the sup kambing makes a good side dish to go with your nasi lemak. Be prepared to get into a state of confusion when you dine here as the moment you sit down, the waiters from the drinks, soup and other stalls flock around your table and starts to offer you their specialities.

Tonight PG was in town. DL brought MH along and we dragged PG out for dinner, or more like he preferred to tag along. A usual, no one could think of anything or place to eat, DL recommended Seafood Ler. Quick and dirty choice. Went there straight from 1 Utama, since DL was on tight budget. As tight as his pants.

Our special little request on 3 heavenly vege turns out pretty surprising. DL asked for more lady’s fingers, but instead, we got plenty of long beans. I was wary of it as I wasn’t sure if it was good for my strict diet. While MH was poking fun at me for having too much stink beans, as he remarked, “those are beans as well.” The clay pot curry fish head was good, as usual. Except it was lacking a little on curry fragrance. Should have put in more curry powder. The special spare ribs took quite a while before it was being served. Aside from the charred bottom, the taste was rather exquisite. Probably dunked with plenty of marmite, which was bad for my strict diet. The pork smell was rather heavy despite the preparation steps. I guess any ordinary marmite spare ribs would’ve tasted the same.

Started off with the stir fried vege. It was just right, not too salty or tasteless. Next, the curry spare ribs. It came as a surprised yet I can’t help myself by have to have at least a couple of pieces despite my strict diet. The curry was nice and the coconut milk was thick. Not too thick which made the curry dull. The meat was tender and just right. Then the steamed chicken. I don’t fancy steamed chicken, but this place is famous for its chicken, so I just had to try it. The extra condiments was given especially for the chicken only. It was pretty neat, better than having plain celery leaves in soya sauce. Lastly, the bean curd, which has plenty of little anchovies on top of it. Trapped, but I was satisfied with the dinner here.

I don’t usually order yee min but I don’t really have much choices when I’m on strict diet. Firstly, I was served with chopsticks that had cloth lint sticking on it as well as the spoon which was 1/2 way soaking in the soup. The yee min was all soggy by the time they got the utensils replaced. The taste wasn’t exactly appetizing. Fortunately, I have jalapeno with me, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to finish it though I was dead hungry. The fried rice tasted a bit sweetened and mildly spicy. But it doesn’t have any nice fragrance to it at all, probably because it was cold.
