In Chinatown or known as Petaling Street in KL, is a place that used to be famous for a lot of nice eatery. However, most of them had turn into commercialize and taste had change over the years including China Town Seng Kee. Used to be one of a famous dinner place in Petaling Street or hotspot for after clubbing.

Seng Kee had been operating in this area for easily around 20-25 years.

China Town Seng Kee

after drinking at a hidden bar nearby, we decided to drop by this place to check em out again on the food as they are famous for a few dishes.

The original founder of the place is left with this ah ma, where she sits in the shop most of the time. She build this place together with her husband. I forgot who was the chef, is either relative or son.

Claypot Lou Shu Fan

Claypot lou shu fan is one of their signature. flood with sea of mince pork and of course must topped with an egg. (this is upon request where many of their customers prefer not to have an egg) whyyyy????

Another great dish that you should not miss is this Stir Fried Intestine which is one of their signature dish.. Fried with wok hei and it is punch with flavor on every bite. Chewy yet a bit of heat at the end as it is stir fried with chili padi.

Seng Kee Chinatown (9)

Seng Kee famous pork noodle

This is one of their famous dish. The Siew Yoke Mee (Roasted Pork Noodles). It is like a must order dish. The noodle is alright and Siew Yoke is not too bad. I still remember that the noodle sauce used to be darker and their siew yuk is more caramelize which is on the stickier side.

Seng Kee Hokkien Mee

The Kl version of Hokkien noodle is not too bad. Thick noodle which is not overcook and, cook to abit thick in sauce. As above, its quite like their must order item when you come to this stall.

Indeed the quality of cooking and food had dropped. But still decent enough to pay a visit whenever you feel like it. It is still here than better its close down. Support some local businesses to make them sustain is perfect.

If you are a traveler, I think it is worth to pay a visit here if you want some local stir fried street food in KL. Just my own opinion.

We drank till late on Saturday night, then my best friend NEO say Bak Kut Teh for breakfast next day. We all asked him, are you serious? He said yes, lets go to one of his favourite 155 Bak Kut Teh at Pandamaran, Klang. One of the latest addition of bak kut teh added into the Bak Kut Teh street in Pandamanaran. They so called it “bak kut teh kai”

They are well know for their Claypot bak kut teh style but Neo said, he prefer it to be serve in individual bowls. You get to taste the best of the soup and the quality of meat. So 4 of us and he ordered nearly all the parts of the pork.

155 bak kut teh (7)

best bak kut teh in klang

From big bone, small bone, soft bone, pork ribs and  others.

It is indeed very satisfying, as I love the taste of the soup. Punch with flavour as they are thicker in taste, not only that which is also slightly more on the herbs taste. You can taste the tong guai abit more prominet that gives you the sourish bitter end.

Pork meat is soft, tender and juicy. Since after that day, I came back and tapau 2 rounds whenver I pass by.

Pandamaran Bak Kut Teh

Best of all, the soup is refillable.

Price point, refer to the picture with auntie above as I did not make payment that day.  But my tapau 2 rounds easily cost RM 38 for 2 pax. which I order cham cham.

It was before MCO I went to check out this cafe in ss15. The Toast House 多士號 at Subang SS15 was pretty hit before then. An white mosaic interior that gives  minimalist feel. Making them a  place which is pretty instagramable.

cafe in subang

Toast house x Kuala Lumpur is located the same stretch as the famous pork noodle or can say a few doors away.

cheese toast (1)

Menu is rather direct . .

Since were here for a quick breakfast decided to try out the charcoal grill jumbo series with : Jumbo Bacon and Hashbrown sandwich with Cheese @ RM 15 – pork bacon, hasbrown, cheese, egg, cabbage, tomato slice

sandwich

The sandwich itself is pretty big, is more like a double toast x 3, so it is more like a sandwich stack for me.

the toast house (5)

Crispy inside out and their own sauce is not bad.

the toast house (6)

since the word Special Royal Coffee (Hot) at RM 5 do attract me to try. Well, I guess kopitiam version is better. Not to my liking. you guys can give it a try.

the toast house

Then try out Taiwanese Pancake , Bacon Pancake @ RM 8. It is not too bad on the flat bread, slightly chewy to my liking and I guess worth to give it a shot.

Its simple food for breakfast or you just want your sandwich.

Ramen Lovers will be joyful with this ICHIKAKUYA Ramen hail all the way from Yokohama. An authentic Japanese ramen all the way from Yokohama had landed in Subang, Malaysia. Operating in this newly develop UOA business park.

Ken had been telling me that I must come to his current new all time favourite ramen place. After 3 weeks, finally I am here for the ramen.

gyoza

best ramen in kl

Their menu is pretty standard. what they are well known as they are using exclusive wheat flour, to make ramen noodle from it. For Malaysia, they imported it all the way from Yokohama and made the noodle fresh every morning. making them like Authentic Japanese Ramen from Yokohama.

Japnese Ramen

Do check out their menu as this place offer variety of style in your noodle.

  1. authentic way is of course :
    1. hard noodle
    2. normal taste
    3. normal chicken oil
  2. soup:
    1. soy sauce base
    2. salt base soup (best for first timer)

Ichikakuya (5)

Ichikakuya (6)

Ichikakuya (7)

  1. however we love our taste strong so our order are Max Ramen with Soy Sauce @ RM 25
    1. hard noodle
    2. strong taste
    3. xtra chicken oil

Ichikakuya ramen(8)

authentic japanese ramen

Every ramen shop got their own signature noodle and soup base. I quite like this as the noodle is thicker than usual, however love the chewie’ness of it as I order mine hard. not many locals will like this texture as when I was in Japan, they thought me to go for Hard which is most of the Japanese dine in that way.

pork slice

the thinly slice char siew is perfect. thin like near paper, torch burnt that give the slight burnt umami that I like and the fats is near to melt in your mouth.

yokohama ramen

The soup is quite thick to my liking, punch with flavour as the soup base is being cook for 36 hours. I chose my soup with strong chicken oil that gives a very nice “chicken’ish” aroma (some of you might not like it) but balance well with the soup. The first instant hit is the chicken flavour then after taste is smooth and not too pork bone taste.

The best of all is not their onsen egg but is their QUILL egg. Do give it a try and if you do order add on, I will definitely add on quill egg with Asahi beer.!

First timer, it is advise for you to go everything normal. 

Ichikakuya (12)

Ken style of eating is to order Sutameshi Rice Bowl – pork bely rice @ RM 18. We have to eat our noodle till all clear and left with about 3-4 spoonful of soup base, enjoy 1 or 2 bite of this rice then pour the rest of the balance of rice into the ramen soup with rice. (this is how I was taught in Japan too). To get the best aroma of different flavours.

Overall, it is very interesting as each combination gives me different layer of taste. How we eat it, I get to enjoy at least 4 layers of different taste when comes till the pork belly rice. The rice is good cause of the soy sauce used. Damm good!

this is another type of ramen as usually ramen is hard to compare Apple to Apple as every chef have their own specialty. This is definitely one of the top in my recommended list. One of the best Ramen in KL.

In Pudu, there is this famous Hainanese Kopitiam that used to operate inside the Pudu Pasar which is Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea 阿榮哥海南茶. Since there was a new Pudu wet market that being build to replace the old one, most of all the classic famous market street food had move into this ICC Pudu building.  . [I still like the old classic pasar feel(click here)]. Of course in here is cleaner and cooler.

Currently it is helm by second generation if I am not mistaken, that is a shop that had been operating more than 40 years.

 

Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea (1)

Well, many regard them as one of the best Hainanse Coffee shop that you can get in KL. It is well known not only till attracted local tourist yet many foreign tourist too.

If you come during long holiday, do prepare to fight for a table. It is a warzone!

Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea (2)

this is their menu. The classic Haianese breakfast set that you need to order is 3 items.

  1. Signature Hainaese Tea/ Cham (means coffee mix tea)
  2. Signature Kaya Butter toast
  3. soft boiled egg

Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea (3)

It can be so busy till you have to pick up yourself.

Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea (4)

Inside this kopitiam, there are a few other stalls too.

Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea (5)

I find that the yong tau foo is pretty good too.

Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea (6)

Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea (6)

Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea (10)

My usual order. Cham coffee + Signature hainaese tea + kaya butter toast.

Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea (12)

Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea (13)

If you are here during long weekend, do prepare for this crazy crowd. If you are  tourist looking for breakfast in KL, this is one of a classic place to be. Tons of local food for your breakfast as you walk towards behind, you will easily find another 50 stalls.

Some people say its so so and some say its very good. Again depends on your taste bud. My foriegn friends prefer Ho Kaw which is at China Town, Petaling Street.

Happy eating.
