Ah Boy Kwayteow T’ng, Penang

Have you heard about this stall?  Apparently most of the locals in Penang want to keep this secret. In a recent trip up north to Penang, we were told to search for this place along Argyll Road.  So the Sunday before we left the island, we dutifully drove along Argyll Road looking out for a [...]

MyKuali Penang White Curry Noodles

Lately, these instant noodles have been the talk of the town.  I’ve seen people raving about it on social media too.  Thanks to a fellow blogger friend who passed me some to try not too long ago, I was able to taste them and find out what the fuss is all about. First of all, [...]

The Best Prawn Mee in Kota Kemuning at Uncle Vincent’s!

The first thing I did was to taste the sambal that came with the bowl of Prawn Mee.  I could discern freshly-ground dried chillies (not the preservative-laden commercially produced type!), belacan and dried shrimps and laced with sweet fragrant pounded shallots.  Yes, that definitely passed my acid test. Next… the broth.  I scooped a whole [...]

The Taste Garden @ Kota Kemuning

Five years ago when we moved into this neighbourhood, it was a quiet residential enclave, with lots of matured shady trees lining the roads and ample parking spaces everywhere, even right in front of the banks.  These days, well… the shady trees are still there but the roads are no longer as quiet and horrors… [...]

Penang Food Stories (Chapter 3): Song River Cafe @ Gurney Drive

I know some people scoff at Song River Cafe being a good place to eat in Penang, maintaining that it’s only meant for tourists and that most self-respecting Penangites would not patronize that place.  Well, I’m not really bothered about this, because I have my favourite dishes there and yeah, I am not a Penangite [...]

Gurney Delights @ Kota Kemuning

No, you didn’t read it wrong – there IS a place called “Gurney Delights” in Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam. It’s a neat little café, unpretentious and simplistic in its set-up, located in the midsection of a block of shoplots in the Kota Kemuning commercial centre. I first noticed this outlet some months ago, yet had [...]

Mum’s Kitchen Restaurant

The lunch we had at Mum’s Kitchen Restaurant was most memorable because it was the meal with the most no. of claypot dishes we’ve ever had!  Pot after pot, they came… smouldering and bubbling, giving out the most heavenly aromas even before the pots touched our table. Recently relocated to Subang, Mum’s Kitchen Restaurant, which [...]

Chee Cheong Fun @ Yap Hup Kee, Pudu

Growing up in Ipoh, one of my all-time favourite food is the humble Chee Cheong Fun.  Literally translated from Cantonese, it means “pig’s intestine noodles”.  I have often wondered why it’s named as such?  Maybe because they do come in rolls and I guess in some way they resemble “pig’s intestines”?  Anyway, my favourite has [...]

HK Food Trail: Pt.3 – Wantan Noodles!

So there’s a major water cut here in almost half the Klang Valley today until Friday. Many of us are reluctant to go eat out because of this and I believe those restaurants not affected by this little inconvenience are doing a roaring business these 2 days. So that explains why I’m having my own [...]

Uncle Seng’s Homemade Noodles @ Subang Jaya

The other day LL came home all excited about some noodles joint he’s tried and was all eager to introduce me to. He was raving about the special noodles he’d eaten there and couldn’t wait to take me there!  “So where is this noodles place?”, I asked LL.  He said “I don’t know”.  See, that’s [...]

Noodles Party @ Chef Choi’s

Let me tell you something:  I love my noodles, I do.  I’d go for noodles, any time, over rice. So, when CS decided to hold a Noodles Party at Chef Choi’s and I was privileged enough to be on her invitation list, I was almost ecstatic. If my previous dinner experience at Chef Choi’s was [...]

Kung Fu Pan Mee @ Taman Sri Sentosa

“I’m going to bring you to eat the Best Ever Pan Mee in town!” – that was what LL told me one fine morning.  It is not very often that LL would actually bring me anywhere for food (it’s usually the other way round) and I wasn’t too sure that his promise of the “Best [...]

Awesome Porkball Noodles @ Kota Kemuning

I started this blog in December 2007 and I can’t believe it’s now almost 3 years since my first post!  Since the Merdeka mood is still prevailing, with everyone reminiscing over things from the past, I couldn’t help thinking back to that first post I did for this blog.  I thought it’s a good idea [...]

I Lost & Found Mr Mak

For the records, let me declare here that I don’t simply eat Fish-head Noodles. What I mean is I’d never order that if I walk into any coffee-shop which has Fish-head Noodles in one of the many stalls. Simply because I find that generally most Fish-head Noodles are really not that nice… most of them [...]

Lusting for Kar Heong

Rainy mornings are bad.Don’t you hate them?I do… more so when it’s a working day.It becomes worse when you get stuck in a horrendous jam on the road caused by an 8-car pile-up. But that’s really not as bad as… When you start shivering in your cold office, facing a mountain of papers and… hankering [...]
