Pulled Pan Mee @ Restoran Hong Joo, PJ Old Town

Pan Mee.. Ah yes.. I am a huge fan of the Pan Mee. There’s nothing fancy or glam about this dish. When it’s torn with uneven edges, it is called Mee Hoon Kueh. The uneven shapes might even come across as rather crass and unpolished, but take one bite out of this comfort food, and […]

Restoran Famous Steamed Tilapia, Pudu KL

This restaurant, which isn’t even really a restaurant, has no name. So for the sake of this post, we will just call it, Restoran Famous Steamed Tilapia Pudu. And if you think that’s strange, what’s even stranger is the fact that this space isn’t even really a restaurant. It is the alleyway between to coffee […]

Chef Li’s Penang Hokkien Mee @ Taman Megah

While we KL folk call it Prawn Mee, the Penangites call it Hokkien Mee. Hokkien mee to us locals is the black colored thick noodles, stir-fried with pork lard, steeped in dark soy sauce, finished off with prawns, pork and serve with chili lime paste. So make no mistake, this is indeed the Penang version […]

Chun Kee Tai Bu Mee, Jalan Sayur, Pudu

What on earth is a Tai Bu Mee? There’s wantan mee. There’s fried hokkien mee.. but Tai Bu? Well Tai Bu (or Dabu) is actually a place China, densely occupied by the Hakka folk, and where they obviously cook food in the Hakka manner. So you could say that the Tai Bu noodles might also […]

Margaret Yong Tau Foo @ Subang Perdana

If you are a size queen, like I am, you will love this place. Margaret’s Yong Tau Foo is one of the best places to visit, for supersized Yong Tau Foo (YTF). It definitely ranks way up there on our top list of YTF Joints in KL. Priced at RM0.80 per piece, it is rather […]

Top 10 Hot Spots for Siew Yoke in KL

When I was little, I used to watch my dad prep his special, secret recipe, Roast Pork (Siew Yoke) in the back kitchen in Ipoh. I remember the distinct aroma wafting from the kitchen that got my salivary glands going – till today, he is still the best cook I know,  so any Siew Yoke […]

BBQ Pork Addictions at Hoong Kee

It seems like every week, we find a great new place for BBQ Pork (Charsiew) Noodles. It doesn’t take much to make us happy, but the pork has to be spot on in terms of flavour, and have a nice charred BBQ outer layer too. And now, we have yet another Charsiew place to add to our […]

Crazy about Loke Yun Ampang’s Chicken Rice!

All this marathon training and running has only succeeded in doing one thing. It has given me a huge appetite for carbs. And few foods exert as tantalizing a pull on my voracious appetite as rice and chicken. Not just any chicken. But good old fashioned, texture that has a bit of a fight, kampung […]

Back to Sin Hiap Kee for that Curry Fish Head Fix

Just as any South East Asian that’s been away in the West for too long, the immediate craving on the dining table is for something greasy, sweet-sour, spicy and hot off the stove. I am back in KL! And my appetite for all things spicy, greasy and generally eaten with a truck load of steaming […]

Wang Chiew Pork Knuckle

To some of my American friends, the words ‘pork knuckle’ summon horrific images of knobby, stringy joints and inedible parts and is usually met with a shudder and upturned nose. Luckily, my Brazilian friends, are totally 100% into the Pork knuckle. Too bad for the Yanks, and more for me (and the South Americans), I […]
