Today, CTSW came looking for me for lunch. Since we don’t have anything to do, so I recommended that we head on to KL and have lunch in the foot court at Lot10. This time around, I get to try out the BKT, at last.

... a place not suited for certain ethnic of people.


... the bak kut teh looks delicious. I wonder how's the taste.

Rating: 8/10

Though I don’t really fancy Klang’s BKT, but this particular Mao San Gao (毛山稿) BKT really changed my mind. It tasted really really good. The soup was thick and black, with quite heavy scent of herbs, which I’ve never tasted before from Klang’s BKT. The meat was tender and the guy was nice enough to pick the leanest piece of meat for me. As such request was usually turned down. This BKT cost me around RM16 for a bowl of rice and a bowl of meat and soup. Steep, but it was really. I will definitely have this again when I’m back to Lot10 again for meals.

... suddenly I felt like eating bubur cha cha when I saw the picture on a stall. But this was lacking in sugar and coconut milk. Rather runny.

Rating: 3/10

Despite its look, this dessert tasted quite bad. Now I really wonder, did their quality dropped or the owner of the food court liked the plain runny taste of Bubur Cha Cha? Definitely not to my liking. It was quite runny as if they’ve mixed a lot of water in it to make a few more bowls to earn the quick bucks. Stay away from the dessert stall.

... this oysters omelette was so-so only.

Rating: 5/10

The oysters omelette was just mediocre, nothing to shout about. Though it was better than the one I had in HK, which was smaller and cost more than this.

On the very same day for dinner, I had the same Mao San Gao BKT again, at the Bandar Puteri Puchong’s outlet. Unfortunately, it doesn’t taste as good as the 1 I had in Lot10, though the price was cheaper. It lacks the herb flavour in it which I preferred.

This is the place that I’ve been wanting to come very often, and at the same time, would like to introduce it to my fellow friends and colleagues. Because this is a seafood place that worth every penny. This time around, I brought along ALGJ and MSF. MSF said she wouldn’t have join us if it wasn’t for my birthday celebration. It was because Jinjang is just so far away from our office. The time we took to reach here was more than 1 hour, due to the after office hours jam.

As usual, the fried little squids that I won’t miss, while MSF said she has been craving for crabs all this long. Hence we ordered 2 XL sized crabs. A sweet and sour flavour and baked style. The crabs were magnificent because the size of the pincers were about the size of my palm. Sweet and sour flavoured crab was not a simple dish to make. So far, I haven’t had a good sweet and sour crab in KV before. The last best one was from my home town, which I think the place has closed down. Now, I have finally found a sweet and sour crab which I could put in my mouth. Not that I’m biased, but it was really good. As for the baked crab, it was very salty though, similar to what I had in Seremban.

Fortunately, both of them were quite satisfied with the food and find that the bill was reasonable. Before we left the place, MSF said she has to come again for crabs next time. Generally, all the food we had for the evening were quite good. This place has never disappoint me so far.

... 2 strips of roasted pork, each costing RM13.50.

Brought ALGJ to try out the best roasted pork in town. I wasn’t too sure if the place was open or not because it was Sunday. Our chance was 50-50. Based on my last visit, the place should be closed on today. Anyway, we went to give it a shot after our stroll in Berjaya Times Square.

Similar to my previous visits, the taste was pretty much the same. Which was a good thing cause I was here to have some good roasted pork. Though we were quite late (it was already 1pm+), but there were still a few pieces of roasted pork hanging up. I guess Sunday is just a quiet day for them. No wonder they opens every fortnight for Sunday.

Please check my previous experience for more details.

This was probably the best roasted pork I’ve had in Klang Valley. It beats my favourite roasted pork at Mooi Mooi. The lean meat was so tender and it seriously melts in the mouth. Despite the crispy skin, it melts as it touches my saliva. The taste and fragrance of the lard filled my mouth immediately, just like a nuclear explosion. Each slice of the roasted pork cost RM13.50. We had 3 slices and the meal cost RM51.10. Even the 10c was being charge by the lady instead of waiving it off for convenience sake. What the…

If Indonesia was having a Richter 7.9 of quake, this could easily shakes my world with a Richter scale of 9.7!

A must try!

On a side note, I’ve read a blog comparing this to the roasted pork in Mooi Mooi, saying that the service here was very lousy and bad. I went there quite early and the roasted pork was still being prepared. The boss was so kind enough to actually waited for me to snap a photo of the 3 pieces of delicious roasted pork before he continues his work. The service was ok, probably because there weren’t many people the time I was there. It was Sunday morning after all. Perhaps I’ll try to go again on weekdays to feel the wrath of bad service as mentioned by the blogger.

My sister has been telling me about this newly opened steakhouse. Since we were in Giant today, after the little shopping spree, we stopped by here for our late lunch. Though I hesitated at first due to my strict diet’s restrictions. But I went ahead with it anyway cause I won’t be back here so often.

The watermelon juice was very sweet and I don’t see any sign of sugar water. It doesn’t have the taste of watermelon skin too. The lamb chop with butter caught my attention. The marinated lamb meat was nicely done and the butter goes so well with the lamb chop as well. It was perfect for a piece of RM14.90.

After our 2nd round of lunch at Koon Kee, we adjourned to the nearby infamous longan drink stall. This stall was the 1st ever famous food I’ve heard of since I started staying in KV. It’s a must try for everyone.

... the crowds.

After so many years, the taste was still as good. It felt like the 1st time I had it. Though the last time I had this longan drink, it was very bad, bitter even. I guess now the boss took over his/her own stall and manage it all by him/herself. Another downside was the ice was quite a lot compared to last time where the ice was thin.

After our terrible 2nd dinner at Restoran Lou Wong we decided to find some place for a drink. While on the way there, we managed to stop by and see the other car went to flirt with Ah Kua by the corridor.

The environment was nice and cozy. The seat was nice at first, but my back starts to ache after a while. Price was reasonable as well. Finally, my bottle of ESPriT was being used as a model for photoshoot. I could see her breaking sweat from the beginning. My somewhat cold drink turned into a not-so-cold drink.
