An hour after our breakfast and check-in into hotel, headed to this placed called Jonker’s walk area. To try out the Chicken Rice ball. A thing that was told must not miss.
When we reach there, the crowd is just so gilar.. a bunch of people waiting outside including us under the hot sun. Luckily, we did not wait long to be seated inside. This picture of queing is after our meal. Siau..even people take umbrella to que.


The ah pek never stop chopping on the chicken.


The reason of so many people waiting outside is the shop have limited space.


What I have been told by my friend, that the chili here is very nice. Me being want to try on everything, so just take lah~

The most famous thing in this shop is the ‘Rice Ball’. I find it its quite sticky, yet tasteless. If it was abit dry and flavourful, surely it would be nice.
The chicken chop till so geli and was inform that the ah pek had help us to remove the bone. Nothing special on the chicken to comment about.
This shop is nothing special about it which I feel, there is other chicken shop in KL or PG taste much better than this. Just that its in Rice ball form but one of the most famous shop around the area. What I feel on this shop is OVERRATED!

We are so full till walk is also a problem. Then after coming out from the desert shop, a ah pek selling ‘Pumpkin Cake’ caught my attention. Some more the ah pek was telling me, I must eat. If I don eat I will regret, then I ask the ah pek. SO hoh liau boh..?? he said Guarantee hoh liau! If boh hoh jiak, money back. I was like…wah, so geng boh. Okay la. I grab 2 piece. One with chili and 1 without.

Looks like ‘Chai Tau Kuih’ but doesnt taste similiar. The one with chili sauce taste nicer. Soft texture yet orangy yellowish in the inside, and the taste is there. Would say its the best but its above average. Supporting ah pek under the hot sun, well I would say worth it.

Walk walk walk down the street, then Karen was like…woiii..I want to buy this. Icy cool like ice blended on the street with fruits flavour.

got passion fruit, mango, watermelon and other fruits available Only RM2.50 for a cup of street ice blended. Its cheap I would say.
Sip and sip under the hot sun walking this street is just no complain.
Then the shop next to the ice blended stall, the aroma of fried cempedak fly me to this stall. The Keharum’ness of the smell is just fantastic.
‘Fried Cempedak’ yit lat lat from the kuali….just cant wait to salivate it. Still so full yet hiau, so bought a piece from the ah ma. Smell nice but doesnt taste good. Kena con by the aroma. RM0.60
Location:
Jonker’s Street.

When we reach this place, it was already evening. Inside our stomach already pre-occupy with Satay Celup that we thought eating abit ended up taking and taking from the fridge. Now a bit regret.
 
Choe did work here for a period of time then she mention that this is a good and famous place by the sea. I had some imaginations in my mind as she said that the seafood here not cheap. So given a pre-picture of pricing, thought that it would be a ideal place with restaurant by the sea.

Mana tau when I reach the place, I was like Down! Its’a food court feel. Even the one is Esplanade, Penang is even better with the environment.
 
Maybe I just came back from Macau not that long, as my concept of Portugese Settlement is something like the concept there. Never thought that it would be totally different.


There are 10 stalls of seafood here. Wonder how they do business. Mini Jakarta..that’s what i thought off. Then Choe said that this stall served better seafood as the first stall is popular with the tourist. Then what I heard the story was very fuuny. If you are a DAP or any opposition supporter they will have conflict with that stall owner. Then I was like har..like dat also can ah..thought is 1 Malaysia?hrmmm…..

The order of ‘Kangkung Belacan’ cost RM 6 taste not any much different from what we eat in any part or any corner.

‘Fried Sotong’ seems to be a bit dissapointed with too much flour is like eat flour more than sotong. RM10
 
‘Butter Prawns’ if not mistaken cost RM15. Lack of the taste of butter and the kick in it. Its at acceptable level.
 
‘Lala’ is something slightly better in taste wise, covers with ginger and the chili spicy taste. At least make our taste bud working. RM10
 
Never a big fan of ‘Bendi’. Pale in taste, prawns nearly not fresh yet okay loh. RM6
 

Among all the dish, ‘Black Papper Crab’ is the best of all. Fresh slices of crab meat, pangang with black peper powder and some springkles. RM32 

In the end, we were quite full from the previous satay. Havent come to a stage with the satisfaction feeling yet.
When we about to go off, here is the amout of crowd that pour into the place. Every of the each individual stall got their very own crowd. By walking around the area, still feel that the food presentation of STall 1 looks better and tempting. Next round I susppose.
This is the stall that located next to this shop.
 
Its a ‘Mango’ drink. Something very unique yet freshing and appetite oppener. Guess how many cups I drank. If not mistaken 3-4. Its blend with young mango, that’s how the sour flavor got juice out. Very nice. Highly Recommended by me even though you are around the area. RM2.50

Seafood wise, even the price is cheap but the food quality is above average, maybe would encourage you to try other stalls.

After dinner at Portuguese settlement, we head back to hotel to park our car and head to Jonker’s street night market. Where this is one of the famous streets everyone in town is talking about.

As it was weekend and the people conquering the streets is like Sparta, most stalls also got people buy, and the people that walking up and down is like morning market + night market + a lot of Singaporean + a lot outstation people = human traffic jam.

Yet we are still quite full from our dinner which is like 75-80% full but then still hiau, wanna try out the food. So when I came across the very first stall is this ‘Nyonya Delights’.

The auntie is enjoying brisk business and I am squeezing in to take my shot and seeing what variety she is having. Quite unique in the shape and flavor itself and ask the rest to share. Every one with one bites.

What I remember is the ‘Nyonya Sri Muka’ is my most preffered compare to the rest.


As the daughter also helping out on the stalls, the price range from RM0.50-RM2.

I see a lot of kids and young couples holding this one stick eat eating while walking. Thought its something unique mana tau its this Taiwan street snack stall. Taste so so only la..not my type of desert.
As walking down the streets and the amount of sweats accumulating on my body is going up. Then while waiting for the rest to catch up and waiting, saw this stall which is usually doesn’t attract me but the new flavor surely get my attention.
 

Usually I get peanut with corn and sometimes angry with egg also.

I have never tried ‘Durian Pancake’ and with my stomach already going to its full capacity yet still want to try.
 

 

The best part is they use the original durian meat and put upon. When the aroma was flying around, me and Kenji was like hmm..not bad not bad.. uncle add one more…hahah…all already full but got tempted by this piece.
Hot from the pan, crispy yet flavorful and the durian taste is what I prefer, a bit bitter yet sweet and with the crust around just taste good. All of us enjoy every bite of it. If we have room for more, surely we are going for second piece.
This stall is located at this street or this corner of the shop. The only stall serve with durian. Something you should try.

The stall opposite which looks colorful pulls me to that stall. Hot steaming good for facial yet with the amount of tim sum they are offering, cannot fill in liau. Just skip this stall. Maybe those who have tried can let me know.

Few stalls down the road, Kenji already start complaining that we all are animal. Do not know the word called ‘STOPPED’. Eating from morning till night yet still eating, Nagging all the way after the pancake.

 

Then came across this stall, that the uncle sell left 5-6 pieces of the otak-otak and Karen sapu everything + order additional 100 sticks to tapau back to KL. We asked her is she alright or not. Buying so many to eat. 50 is just enough, she said that can put in fridge and last 1 ma. I think she is going in to winter and need to stock up food for hibernation process.  

Walk towards end of the street, Choe and Jon was saying wanna eat lala. then I said you guys go ahead. Never a fan of lala..yew..geli with the blood some more. Yucks~
 
 

 

 

  

  

Then ah Keh pull me along to eat the jap stall which she wanted only to take the picture of the stall, so jap feel but then the pic that I took was blurr didn’t post up..deng!~

I have never seen a Japanese stall outside on kopitiam or pasar malam or night market enjoying brisk business. These guys never stop wrapping up sushi.
This is one of their signature item in the stall. We find it quite nice. Should not miss if you came across this stall. Can’t remember the name but you will get to see a lot people ordering that.

 

Another signature was ‘Fruit Sushi’ serve in apple and a few other fruits. Something unique which you can try out, didn’t try the fruit as my stomach already put a stop sign for foods. NO MORE FOODS in my body.

Of course I am not eating that, cuz I was seating in front of them in the stalls, I am taking most of the pics I can.

This is what most of Karen’s order. Order then I have to become recycle bin.
The sushi that the prepare was fresh even for the salmon, no complain for a street food.

 

The sushi that was prepared is fresh even for the salmon, there is no complain la..for such a street food can get that kind of quality.

After the sushi, for my very own personal last stop which I saw a kid licking this so tempting cuz the weather was hot and surely its the thing that I need for at least its very refreshing and cooling. I took the Lime flavour which taste like you buy in Kedai runcit when I was a kid. Happily licking all the way to beer session.
Remarks: do not miss the durian pancake and the Sushi signature.

It was early morning and we are quite hungry. Each of us were given a coupon each and I thought that its a buffet style. When we found a place to sit on the outside for the smokers to get their early fresh air that they needed then only realise that its ala cart. 14 sets of food to choose from. All Look about the same, so we go for their most heavy breakfast set they got.

‘Theow Chiu Porridge’

The most heavy breakfast they got ‘English Breakfast’.

‘Nasi Lemak set’ was nothing to shout on that the rice is not warm, the curry chicken is mild and thick with spicy powder flavour.

After checking out, and drive out of town about 20-30 minutes, this place was introduce by our friend Choe as she mention that this place serve nice seafood. The night before we had a disappointed seafood meal, hopefully and cross finger this is good.
When we arrive, I thought that this place looks kinda cool but surprisingly, we were the only guest there. Then I thought to myself that, hrmm…this place can go or not…*doubting.

An empty restaurant with we the only guest, so what kind of quality you can think of.

They have indoor and outdoor area. I was told by Choe that in the afternoon, the business is like that but during dinner time, you better get your ass there early as its sardine packed. This place is usually dine by most of the CEO and manager level people.

The food that we order, by the looks of it, it did not disappoint us, looks tempting yet delicious.

Start off our meal with ‘Duck in Kiam Chye soup’ that is totally a great start, sour that opens up your appetite with the flavor in the soup is just perfect. Walap the soup within seconds.
If I am not mistaken this is the ‘Prawn with Pineapple in Coconut Sauce’ is one of the dish that you should not miss. The not so thick in the gravy yet perfect and filled with the sweetness of the pineapple and the prawn that cook in soak in the flavor. Freshness of the prawns detected with hard texture yet juicy. RM20
Next don know what is the name of this dish, as the receipt given very cacat. Only written, prawn, veggie, chicken and this and that, only a key word.

Another good dish combination that goes along very well with rice.

 The ‘scallop’ is a bit small in size but it was pan fried with the gravy topping on top, a bit sweet yet salty is just something you would enjoy.

If not mistaken, this is the ‘Nyonya Fish’ quite big in the size yet the gravy showering on it, sweet, sour and salty with a bit thick in gravy, its good. RM43
This is one of the worst dish of all, not to say that the gravy is not good. Just that the crab that they serve is totally not fresh. Fresh crab meat suppose to be in slices but this crab meat is like soft like toufu. Damm Geli. Complain to the worker, yet he keep saying that they get the grab in the aquarium and its still alive when they capture it. Then told them why is it not fresh yet they keep saying the same thing. If we were given only 1 dead crab or not fresh we understand but the problem was the whole plate is a gone case.
We told them that we are not going to pay then the waiter was like lost and sad yet we ask him to ask the chef to check on the quality and the chef is like flipping in and put back out again. its like WTF! like dat also can ah~ Since the manger is not in that day, we told him that what is the minimal that we have to pay. He mention half and I told him max RM30. That’s all. The whole plate of crab cost RM80 and paying RM30 for that dish is consider overpaid. Wish that the manager was there that day.
I have nothing against this place, the food is quite nice compare to the 1 we had yesterday. Just that dissapointed on the crab.
