Getting Hot and Sweaty over Hokkien Mee @ Pom Pom Restaurant

Ah.. what can I say about old school hokkien mee. Apart from the fact that it’s really difficult to find a good one these days. You see. It’s not about how black it is. Or how greasy. Or how many prawns it has in it. By a skilled hand and over a blazing wok heat, […]

Of Steamed Fish heads and Wantan Mee – downtown KL

So the first visit to this area in town, brought us to the famous Ring Road restaurant, famed for its fish head noodles. Dissatisfied that we had yet to try the neighbouring coffee shop that was packed with tables of people sucking the life out of fish heads, I told Cumi I really wanted to […]

10 Ways to fill your belly, on a Subang Jaya Food Trail

So every weekend, it’s customary to go find some place new (to us anyway), to go for good food. A foodie trail if you like. And since Subang Jaya is so foreign to me, Cumi decided we would go there, on a food hunt. We found at least 10 tasty dishes we liked, on this […]

Fish Head Noodles @ Ring Road Restaurant, Jalan Gelang KL

Once upon a sunny afternoon, as me and Cumi were walking around the Loke Yew area, we noticed this place which was packed with folks, all eating one thing. Fish head. The fish looked huge and fresh and the sauces looked amazingly varied. Steaming hot and reeking of a fishy freshness, we found ourselves drawn […]

Slurp Worthy Ramen @ New Yew Sang Restoran

It’s hard to hate a huge bowl of steaming hot, salty, meaty broth with tender, slow-cooked slices of charsiew (BBQ pork) that sits like a crown, on top of a pile of bouncy ramen noodles. But there’s a difference between ramen you eat for a quick fix, and ramen that’s so good, you want to eat it a […]

La Mian & Beef Ball Noodles @ Taman Bukit Anggerik

Ah… for the love of noodles. And for the sake of art.. there is La Mian. For the lore of La Mian that comes from China, is a beautiful art to behold. Not only that. The outcome actually feeds stomachs. La Mian is one of my favorite dishes.. and eating it is only topped by […]

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 […]
