Street Food


I have always been very curious when this Seng Kee Chicken Rice Shop open in this Solaris KL area like a year ago. I have always wonder will there be people going for it. As I was walking to dinner gathering for Korean BBQ, walked pass by saw that they have Merdeka Pomo for Fish Head Curry in Solaris, Mont Kiara for only RM 6.60 with minimum spend RM 66 starting 6pm til 16th Sept.. I think thats quite decent and gather friends to came try following day.

I am quite suprise to see their system for take away, means they are actually quite well known for this area. Looking at their menu, I am also shocked to see that they actually got quite a huge offerings. I always thought that they were a famous chicken rice shop in Solaris. 

looking at the comments, apparently they are also famous for their dim sum that is available all day long.

Reading on their menu, only know that it is actually a brand from Johor. Curious how will this version taste like cause never had Johor Chicken Rice before.

Looking at the amount of chicken display they should be quite good business, siew yuk does look tempting and char siew.chicken rice in pj3 of us ordered, 2 soups. Lotus Root and Peanut Soup  @ RM12 and Watercress Soup with Chicken Feet @ RM 12,

Roast chicken 2 pax @ RM 16, Char siew mix Siew Yuk @ RM 18

Recommending their Thai Style Chicken Feet Skin @ RM 15 is good. Chew skin, cold dishes with well balance of flavours. curry fish head klThis is what we are here for. Their Mereka promo RM 6.60 for Claypot Curry Fish head. turns out to be better than expected. slight watery curry gravy, yet it is fragrant and got a bit of Penang style. I like it. 
curry fish head pjThe portion is surpsingly big. We then ask the waiter, this portion is for how many pax, replied is for 3-4 pax portion.  Normal price at RM 40. For a this portion of Curry Fish Head in KL at that price I think its pretty value.  best curry fish head kl

best roast chicken klRoast Chicken is actually quite good. Skin is fragrant, meant is soft and juicy. Soy sauce is salty to my liking. Taste is slightly different compare to the usual that I have come across.  Their Oil Rice is also different. It is oil rice, not the chicken chicken rice.

siew yuk in mont kiara

Roasted Siew Yuk with crispy skin, I like as every bite is with crunch. Saltiness comes from the skin and meat is soft and juicy.

Char Siew Sauce is also unique, as I forgot to request to give half fat half meat, ended up with lean meat but did order another portion just to try out. Of course the half fat half meat taste much better and more fragrant with its fats that is needed. Sauce is slightly sweet salty. totally different style compare what its in KL. 

chiliOh, you must add on their garlic and chili sauce to enhance the flavour of chicken. We finish one sauce plate each ourselves. chicken rice klAmong the oil rice and wan tan noodle dry, I like the wan tan noodle better. its slightly thin version. Love the texture, slightly chewy with nice handling of the noodle that is not overcook. Sauce is mix well. I would come back for char siew wan tan mee onlyRM10wan tan mee kl

kopitiam in mont kiarafor Hainan Cham and Hainan Kopi @ RM 3.80 each, I like the cham much more. Stronger fragrant tea taste with mild better following thru.

I read comments that many prefer their classic steam chicken. will definitely come back again for second round. I guess this is consider cheap food in Mont Kiara, Solaris.  Now this is making curious how would Johor actual chicken rice taste like.

I am sure many of you are as confuse as I am. is Robert Char Koey Teow a Franchise? Not only till recently a few people share with me that its actually a family chain and I was introduce to visit the Original Famous Penang Robert Char Koey Teow in Damansara Kim, PJ. To get a decent Penang Char Koey Teow in KL is not easy. 

I am sure alot of you have tried Penang Char Koey Teow and of course it is down to personal taste. While He was frying, I had a quick chat with him. This Original Robert Char Koey Teow was founded by him 40 years ago under his name Robert. Currently where he is operating is the latest location he was here.

Other location you see such as Famous Robert Char Koey Teow in Section 17, is actually run by his Brother in Law which I am a regular there. Follow by generous portion economical pricing which is nephew in Kota Damansara and a few other locations are all family related. 

While I was there I find it interesting that he do prepare a special dish out. Fried Koey Teow with fresh egg. I ask uncle what’s that he said you try la. Alot of his regular order that. Ended up I did order one too. I also found that his frying style is quite different and he ends the frying plate with alot of fresh taugeh in quick stir fry.

My first plate is actually very good which is his special signature with raw egg. Can see pork lard and the colour is pretty spot on. Full with wok hei with mild spiciness that I like. 

Second plate which is the original seems to be dissapointing as the colour of koey teow is big different. Then do not find hint of pork lard cubes. True enough that by the look of it and the taste is alittle off. Lack of wok hei and taste is very pale. Seems there is lack of consistancy.

Of course my first time there and I plan to go back again to give it another try. While I was waiting for him, I do see alot of take away which I am sure those are all his regular.

On weekdays and you are traveling around Penang and looking to enjoy night market in Penang, you can try out this Macallum Street Monday Night Market at Penang. This night market is actually quite huge as the time when I pay a visit, it was just after Chinese New YEar and only half of the vendors are operating. 

This place easily cater to at least 100 stalls. Packed with alot of Penang Classic Street Food. 

Enjoy the local Penang street food under 1 street. Be here by 5.30pm onwards before it gets too packed after 8pm. 


Macallum Street Monday Night Market

Operating Hours: Monday only – 5pm – 11pm

Penang street food scene have gain a notch up with the arrival of Michelin ratings in the shore of both KL and Penang. There are handful of hawker stalls being selected as Michelin Bib recipient and Penang Green House Hokkien Mee is one of them since Dec 2022

Of course with this, travelers like me would travel overseas just to hunt on the list. this have created a buzz for Michelin Street Food hunt in Penang.

When Green House Hokkien Mee was selected as the recipient it has raise alot of questionnaires on this. However, I am happy over the listing as let the undiscovered gem still remain as it is and let the commercialize be commercialize so I do not need to queue for my food. 

I still think this stall is decent as once a while I would go back for a classic normal bowl of Hokkien mee. Their unique is they are one of the stall that you can choose to add on ingredients ranging from prawns, egg, intestine, roast pork and others. 

I would always go for add on herbal egg and prawns. Soup wise to me is decent as more towards hint of end sweetness, chili paste that I would add in more to give me the umami spicy impact. 

Overall it is okay as this stall is on the high side. 

When you are craving for Penang street food in Pj, there are not many choices. However, there is this one particular stall that is super famous among the locals and Penangnites. This Famous Penang Curry Mee at Retaurant  Station 8, SS2, PJ that is also previously known as Restaurant OKay, ss2. I believe change owner already.famous curry mee in kl

This stall runs by both father and son from Penang that operates at very unique hour. This will be the first time in your life that see people operating a business for 60-90 minutes only. Yup, that is correct. Only that window. Worst of all is way early in the morning. from 7am – 8.30am ONLY. They only prepare 1 pot of soup. Finish then finish. Good luck. Previously I try my luck for more than 3 times to get this pippin hot bowl.famous penang curry mee in kl




penang street food in pjpenang curry mee in pjbe prepare to queue for 15- 30 minutes for a bowl as there are many regulars who come by to take away also. penang curry mee ss2best penang curry mee in kl

now one bowl is also cost about RM 9 for small and RM 10 for big. Big actually is quite big but now cause of inflation, food is getting very expensive. most important ingredient for Penang Curry mee is pork blood and taupok. 

best penang curry mee in pjthey maintain their quality as the last I had this bowl was like 6 years ago. One of the main reason is I could not wake up. Weekend I would just prefer to sleep. however the soup is still sweet and the most important is the chili paste. Fragrant and punch with mild chili spices. Perfect!
