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.

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

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.

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.

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.

My sister’s friend bought us dinner today. She recommended the grilled lamb, which was quite famous around her area there. I’ve heard of such grilled lamb before, but not too sure if it was in Klang. I’ve heard that grilled lamb is nice and I’m a sucker for lamb too. Hence we proceed with the place. While we were travelling there, I tried to look for “grill” keyword on my GPS and found Hing Ket.

Upon reaching the place, I realised there is another grill house right next door. But we ended up with Hing Ket, as it was POI in the GPS and it has an * on the name, which denotes it’s good.

Firstly, the fried rice was humongous in portion. I was surprised and almost fell off my chair just by the size of it. I guess it was made to feed 5 adults as there were 5 of us adults and my niece. The taste was so-so only though and lacked of wok hei (鑊氣). I-wouldn’t-want-another-bowl the kind of fried rice. My jalapeno in soya sauce doesn’t taste good either, so I had hard time swallowing those fried rice.

Then the fried oysters omelette was rather disappointing. The last of its kind that I’ve had was pretty good. The oysters here were overcooked and dried. The omelette part of it was dried and a tad crispy too. I was expecting soft moist omelette with medium rare or raw oyster with explosively innards. I was ended up chewing bubble gum instead.

Next, the grilled squids. I was reluctant to have it as it goes strongly against my strict diet. Unfortunately, I was succumbed to the good looks of it, ended up I had a few pieces too many of it. Despite the looks, it was rather tasteless actually. It’s alright since it’s not seasoned with anything except the reddish sauce. But it also lacked the great fragrance that squids let out when they were grilled or fried. Which was kind of, disappointing for a squid lover whom can’t have too many squids, like me.

When the grilled lamb was served, the lamb smell filled the area. I kinda like how the mild fragrance let out from the meat itself. When I had the first piece, it was totally awesome. Nicely marinated, not too much salty stuff. Despite it was well done (there were no traces of blood in it), the meat wasn’t sinewy at all. Just right and chew able. The previous 2 items no longer falter my impression dining here, all thanks to the great lamb. Definitely a must have.

After a while, the grilled stingray was served. It looked pretty normal, except it was cut in checkered box shape. The top layer of sauce was lightly taste, while it doesn’t overwhelm the original fish meat’s taste. After a few scoops of it, I realised that the fish was grilled to perfection. It was not overcooked nor it is raw. It was just right at the borderline where most of the moisture in the meat was retained, yet not sticky and smelly if it’s too raw.

Finally, the crabs were served. It seemed to me the crab was not prepared prior to sending to the hot grilles. Our host guessed that the crabs were dabbed with oil while it was being grilled. I was expecting grilled crabs similar to Seremban’s grilled crabs. Unfortunately, it wasn’t as tasty as what I expected and it was just plain grilling. Something which you could do with a BBQ grill if you managed to start the fire. Anyway, I managed to wallop a shell with plenty of roe in it. It was juicy, just like how a grilled crab should be. So, no complain there.

EL and I were in Sunway Pyramid for some window shopping spree (yes, men do go for window shopping too!). We were unable to decide on what to eat for dinner as he said he’s on financial crisis, hence premium food were definitely out of the view. I told him to check out the top floor in new wings where there are a lot of eatery shops. Lastly, we decided on Formosa as I wanted to see if the oyster mee suah gonna give Shihlin a run for its money.

The bubble tea was normal. No where near the best bubble tea I’ve had in 100C Steamboat. Then came the oyster mee suah. I thought it would be served in similar bowl as Shihlin’s. Then I dived into the mee suah. The oysters were little and small. The soup was not as nice too and lacked of oyster taste in it. Finally, I found a black noodle lying in side the mee suah. If only it was a gold wire. The boneless chicken was pretty good. The fried powder wasn’t as thick as those from Shihlin, though the chicken meat itself was not as tasty as Shihlin’s. The meat was pretty tasteless, not salty. Somehow, the mee suah just doesn’t go well with the boneless chicken. Back to Shihlin I go!

Meanwhile, EL was very satisfied with his bowl of braised pork rice.
