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 shops, that’s been converted into one, using zinc structures and awning.
Now that’s super strange.
Anyway, not to be confused with Thim Kee, this one gets filled up in the evenings, and folks pack this little makeshift coffee shop for its Chinese dai chow, and it’s famous steamed Tilapia, of course.
Needless to say, the food here is cheap. If you’re a coffee shop in Pudu, chances are, your food isn’t astronomically priced. That’s why we like this area for street food so much!
Taste wise, the Tilapia was good. It’s not the best fish we’ve had, but for RM30 for a massive serving, one cannot complain. The gravy was delicious. Our fish though, was slightly overcooked – I prefer fish to be more firm than powdery. But the fish was fresh tasting with no fishy smell. Loved the chives, garlic and dark, thick sweet sauce, it was served in. This is the trademark sauce of the restaurant.
Other than that, they do tasty stir-fried vegetables and Pai Kuat Wong (sweet sour pork ribs) here.
Total bill, under RM50. No, not much to complain about at all. This is one of the nice, affordable, late night daichow places to visit in KL, if you are in the Pudu area.
