... steamed silver grunter, Thai style.


... chicken fried in special sauce. No idea what was the sauce called.

Rating: 6.5/10

Lunch with DL and YMH. Ordered the usual stuff, but this time we have a steamed silver grunter in Thai style. It was really nice, sourish gravy with plenty of jalapeno which sends you sky rocket into the moon. I will probably keep this in mind for my next visit there when they don’t have stock on cod fish.

... fish head soup with vermicelli.


... look at the size of the bowl compared to the saucer of condiment.


... there were more bones than meat.

Rating: 4/10

PG’s cravings for fish noodle still remains, hence today he suggested to try the one in Salak South. The size of the noodle was huge, and first impression was that there were plenty of fish pieces on the bowl. Though the taste was mediocre, unfortunately the fish meat has quite heavy muddy taste. Aside from that, there were way too many bones in it.

... this fruits rojak was quite delicious. A rarity in Klang Valley.

Fortunately, our dessert was quite good. I’ve never had such good tasting fruits rojak for a while, especially in KV area. The paste was not as thick as usual, but it has the kind of deep taste which can’t be found from most fruits rojak. I would want to have this again, but unfortunately it’s just too far from my place.

PG told me that he has been craving for fish head noodles lately. I do not know why was that. My only guess was probably because he hasn’t been having “women” for quite some time. I guess having fish head noodle is healthier than the other type of meat. So today he planned to bring me to OUG for a fish head noodle, which he spotted some time ago. Unfortunately, when we were there at the market place, the stall was not opened, hence we had to adjourn to somewhere else. We went to the Win Soon shop in Kuchai Lama. He said this place wasn’t bad either, just a bit costly.

This was probably the best tasting fish head noodle I’ve ever had. Not that I had a lot of fish head noodle in my life, nor do I fancy it. But the soup just taste good, and the fried fish cutlets were good too. Aside from the higher price tag, which I don’t really mind much, this was a good place to visit, once in a while. Besides, the location was quite far from my reach, which might hinder my frequency of visits.

... steamed nuts, not as sweet and juicy as Tai Thong's nuts.


... sweet and sour fish fillet rice.


... Kung Pao Chicken Rice.


... the bill. Seems like the steamed nuts were free of charge.

First time patronising this restaurant. Our set cost us only RM9/pax. Apparently, the steamed peanuts were complimentary. The taste were mediocre, but for such cheap price, you have a plate of rice with 2 types of vegetables and 1 meat as main course. Then you have a choice of hot or cold Chinese tea, bottomless. It’s really no complain if you are looking for a budget meal.

The sweet & sour sauce on fish fillet was acceptable, but the fish fillet was rather foul. I guess the fish was not as fresh as it could be. As for the Kung Pow chicken, it was nothing Kung Pow at all. Avoid the Kung Pow chicken set at all cost.

In the end, you’ll end up with a rather farty lunch.

... char cheong noodle.


... fish slice noodle soup.


... dumplings.

Rating: 4/10

First time having lunch here. Last time I came here was having breakfast and I tried the various flavours of the dumplings there. Today, I had something more filling. I ordered the char cheong noodle, which looks delicious, yet it wasn’t. The fish slice noodle was not bad though. Dumplings were nothing to shout about.

A place I’ll reserve when I ran out of stuff to eat and in desperate moment.

... we occupied 2 tables despite the place was packed with people. But 1 table was too small anyway for the 4 of us.

At first, I’ve got no idea where was this place when my sister told me about it. While on the way, I realised that I’ve came here before, but that was eons ago. Probably 7-8 years back. When we were there, I was thinking we probably can’t get a table cause it was already packed with people. Fortunately, there were 2 tables side by side which could fit the 4 of us, nicely. Though 1 table would do, but I don’t think the table would fit our dishes anyway.

Upon ordering, the lady boss said there are no chickens. They served only “魚、蝦、蟹” (fish, prawn, crab). It sounded funny because “魚蝦蟹” means “et cetera” in Cantonese term. Anyway, we proceed with our order of fried rice as my sister has been praising it. I requested for Tom Yam. What would it be like without Tom Yam when we were in a Thai restaurant, right?

... it was so long ago since I last had a Thai coconut. It was so refreshing and sweet.


... these Chinese crullers similar were little. Probably Thai style crullers. It came with green kaya as condiment, which wasn't too sweet. But the crullers were very oily.

These drink and snack were separately charged. RM4.50 for one coconut was very very costly. The crullers were RM3 per plate. There were only like 11 pieces of them on the place. If given RM3, I think I could have Chinese crullers to my heart’s content.

... condiments for the stuff that we are about to receive.


... there were only 2 choices of vegetables. Kailan and this mixed vegetable.


... this was only plain fried rice, not Thai style fried rice or anything that I was expecting from this place. But there were countless number of prawns in it. Only RM15 for 3 pax portions, very cheap.


... I wasn't too hungry yet, so I wanted something sour to boost my appetite for the dinner.


... this was probably the best tasting grilled squids I've had so far. I was expecting bland tasting grilled squids at first, like I used to have most of the time. But these came as a surprise.


... steamed tilapia. It was somehow prepared in Thai sauce, probably to negates the foul smelling meat of the fish.

Frankly, the nice fried rice was an overstatement. There were a lot of prawns in it for the price of normal fried rice, which was commendable. I guess that’s the reason why most of the tables ordered fried rice, instead of white rice. At only RM5/pax of fried rice, I had at least 5-6 pieces of prawns, average. They were not small either. But in term of the taste department, it tasted like white rice fried in soya sauce. Yup, I could only taste the soya flavour in the rice, nothing else. The egg doesn’t produce any fragrance and the prawns don’t make the rice taste any sweeter either. Anyway, I guess there’s no complain as the portion was big. Mixed vegetables were nothing spectacular either.

The Tom Yam which was prepared in clay pot was acceptable. It was sour and quite thick. Plenty of squids in it and some prawns. Though I prefer a thinner soup base. Grilled squids were my favourite dish of the night. Unlike most grilled squids that I had, this actually tasted salty. And of course, it was best served hot. After it was cold, it no longer taste good anymore. Lastly, the tilapia which was fortunately enough, not very smelly. The meat was soft. Probably because it was prepared in Thai sauce, hence the foul smell was reduced to minimum. Anyway, the sourish and spicy sauce used was very appetizing. I found myself dipping my grilled squids in it and also mixing them into my fried rice.

Our initial plan was to have steamed frog vermicelli here, but ended up they don’t have it tonight. Hence we went with the rather ordinary meal. The drunken chicken soup looked thick and there were so much of ginger in it, though I preferred sliced ginger. The soup tasted quite sweet. Everything else tasted moderate and I don’t have much appetite on them. The fried shrimps only filled on 1 piece of the bean curd while the other was only soaked in oyster sauce. Talks about fair. The fish cost RM8 every 100 grams. Being a freshwater fish, it doesn’t have the mud taste in it.
