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.

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 my 5th time visiting this place, but only this time I brought along my camera. The first time I came was brought by AC. He recommended me the taro balls (yam flavoured glutinous rice ball). He likes the chewy texture of it. So far, I’ve tried the Snowflake Bestseller, Soya ice set and Taro ball set. Soya ice set comes with shaved ice made with soya bean, while Taro ball set was soaked in sugar syrup, very sweet.

Anyway, I preferred best seller because it has the combinations of the 3 sets, which is grass jelly, taro balls and soya bean based ice. Then it was simmered with grass jelly syrup, which has herbs flavour in it. I preferred the grass jelly syrup cause it’s not too sweet.

EDIT: AT said the best seller is not soya based ice. So I guess it’s only combination of 2 sets.

Went to meet up with EL & AT in Sunway Pyramid. He tempted me with XM because the latest SFCC outlet just opened in Maxis Centre in Sunway Pyramid. So, I went up there in a jiffy, met him up, had a cup of Buy-1-Free-1 XM, waited for AT to rendezvous with us then we decide what to have for dinner.

EL specifically said, “something cheap.” I then recommended the ayam penyet in Sunway, the area just opposite Sunway Pyramid. They were OK with it, hence I went on ahead. Luckily I had the GPS coordinates for Ayam Penyet-AP I got from KY Speak’s website, which pointed me to the wrong building block of the place. Duh! Anyway, AT managed to find the place for us in the end.

... almost asked for an iced lime, but since I'm day off of my strict diet. Might as well try out their cendol.

The cendol was quite sweet but not too overly sweet. It reminded me of those cendol served by those Indians with a mini truck by the roadside. The ayam penyet was nice, despite the portion was small. It seemed really flattened compared to those earlier ayam penyets that I’ve had. It was crispy and crunchy which I kinda like yet the meat was not too dried. Tempe wasn’t sourish or bad either. Probably the best tempe, or least worst tempe of all the 3 ayam penyet places I’ve been. Might go back for more if I want a quick fix.
