[Repost on this blog with minor amendments and add ons as old picture was all gone]
I was on my way driving back and oh hell, forgot to ask the number of my friend, where she just came back from Melbourne and was at Ipoh. Totally forgot about that. Then dropping by at this Ipoh town where every one been talking about the Ipoh Nga Choi Kai at Restaurant Onn Kee. Came here for the 3rd time but the other stall did not open so try up this stall. No Choice. Either this or that. So it is this.

Trying out at restaurant Ong Kee. It was around 6pm and the tables was nearly fully occupied. This shows how good the business are but of course cannot compare with Murni @ SS 2 or Steven’s Corner @ OUG / Jln Genting Klang. They are crazee. Occupied the whole street.

 Not only that. They are quite well known for their chicken feet too.

As some of them order chicken skin with some spare part like chicken gizzard, none of the people on my table eat it besides me. Smooth chicken skin with soy sauce just make it simple and nice to chew.

To be in this town and eat chicken rice, their fatty juicy tauge (bean sprout) is not to be miss, and why is their tauge is thick and juicy. Well, I was being told by my friend that they grow in natural mineral water flowing from moutain. That is why the tauge here is fat, juicy and crunchy.

One of my favourite in this stall is their pork ball and fish ball. Something nice to chew and dip onto their chicken meat sauce.

Find that Onn Kee ‘Ngah Choi Kai’ a.k.a ‘Tauge Ayam’ taste much better than Lou Wong. Simply because of the method that they cook it differently. On my personal opinion i think that the chicken texture here is soft tender and juicy and of course what stood out is their sesame and soy sauce base make them more outstanding. This is because I had lunch on Lou Wong had dinner here. That is how I manage to taste on the difference even though I came here many times.

This is the Koay Teow Soup’ that to be eat with the dish. It is either this or rice. Usually all the people that eat here will take Koay Teow but honestly, after you finishing the whole bowl, a little tip. Prepare a bottle of mineral water after that. You will be very thristy with their secret weapon in there. You really need it. That is why with their secret weapon the food will definitely taste nice no matter what. (This was my tip on 2009) 😀

Looking at the way how I blog last time its funny~ kekekeke

This new edit post is a blend of my 2009 writing style and 2012. Spot the difference~ I find that overall, I like Onn Kee more also just realize that I have not blog about Lou Wong before.

Sometimes its a tough decision when the question of where to eat pops up. Just at times do not know what to eat and decided to make a round at my neigbourhood area to hunt for food. Then remember that there are 2 huge food court available around the area of Kepong. This round trying out Kepong Food Court.

kepong kopitiam (1)

kepong kopitiam (3)

No difference like any other food court in Taman Megah or SS15, its another huge food court and I am lost again without knowing what to eat and even walk 3 rounds and still cant make up my decisions, find that this Kepong Food Court is not really complete.

 Then ended up ordering Pork Burger that sells in food court.

kepong kopitiam (5)

 and by looking at the uncle serve his food out of his stall, certainly capture my attention that sells authentic Taiwanese Food.

kepong kopitiam (6)

Choices are pretty decent as like  Taiwanese food all the main selection are there and decided to settle for this stall too.

kepong kopitiam (7)

Ordered the Sour and Spicy Soup Noodle and turns out to be very good. Its quite sour and the spicy taste will hit you after a while and if gives us the challenge to continue eating. Sprinkle with some chili flakes to make it more spicy. The set back is only the noodle is slightly overcook. Nevertheless still a great bowl of noodle for RM5.

kepong kopitiam (12)

After finishing my noodle and looking at the uncle busy serving this Braised Pork rice, it look and smells good. Then decided to give it a go. Love the braised pork sauce was added in and shredded pork slices are soft and flavourful along with rice is just another perfect combination.

kepong kopitiam (14)

Then I was given complimentary Chicken Feet as the uncle see us eat till so happy on his food. Its soft and love the light herbal taste on it too. I must say that for a Taiwanese Food in Kopitiam and at the price, this is surely a highly recommended stall.

 My friend ordered Pork Noodle which is totally out. Don bother.

kepong kopitiam (9)

and here comes my Pork Burger from Big Boys Burger. Ordered it with extra cheeze and bacon.

kepong kopitiam (10)

kepong kopitiam (11)

No doubht for the pork patty is well prepared, season and quite solid. The taste is good for such a medium size patty that did not overcook with cheeze that just melted on the top that makes it perfect along with light saltiness from bacon. Overall its a nice burger pricing at RM 11.90. Find is slightly overprice but nevertheless a good try  . .

If you do come here, Taiwanese Stall is the most highly recommended and do let the uncle know that not to overcook the noodle.

Another Puchong discovery as I felt that there are alot of food outlet in this area. One of the latest discovery is this shop LSY-Pot which their signature is on claypot. One of famous chinese eatery by using claypot to cook the rice and with some add on ingredient as I love my version with alot of chinese sausage and one chunk of salted fish.

Oriental Claypot Chicken Rice @ RM6.90 small, RM13.50 large

This is how I like my claypot chicken rice to be, aromatic of a bit chinese wine, chinese sausage and the most important is they use a very good quality of salted fish.

If you prefer your Claypot chicken rice to be seperated out, they can do it ‘Chicken served on a plate on top of white rice’. To me, this taste better than the mixture of everything inside the claypot, as it manage to seperate the taste out of it and the watery gravy on top of it perfect to go along with rice!

When we were having good times at Songkran water festival (click here), Jonathan suggest that a restaurant that we must not miss and its highly recommended- Restaurant Kan Eng, which during last round of his trip there he did not manage to eat it as the restaurant is so sardine packed! Then on that day, he said that no matter what die die also must go, then lead us walk one big round in the city area as we read the map wrongly. As we walked towards there our stomach is already growling and we are all drench too as we constantly meet some people that station right out from their house to attack on passerby.

Kan Eng

Restaurant Kan Eng is one of the famous local restaurant that attracted a lot of Malaysians to dine there too for its quality and one thing that surely attracted a lot people which is the price of the food, Its very cheap!

Kan Eng (2)

In the menu offer a lot of local varieties, which is most of us would want to eat but that day we have decided not to eat something spicy as in the morning, we really had spicy food till our tears and sweat all dripping nonstop yet scared that we had fun during the water fight then stomachache.

Jonathan was our captain for the night, we leave him in charge of the order as we were busy eating food that we ta pau on the way walking here, would even said that we attack nearly all the stalls that we come across.

Kan Eng (3)

The food was served fast, and start off with ‘Salted Veggie Intestine Soup’, its a good dish to start off with, as I love the salty and sourness of the soup and the pig’s spare part was cook perfectly that it is very chewy and I love to dip it with soy sauce.

Kan Eng (4)
‘Otak Otak’ is one of my favourite that I would not miss when go for thai food, I just love the taste of it which is not very milky feel, yet its seafood in this. Juicy inside out, that it is not steam till it is solid.

Kan Eng (5)
‘Kerabu Chicken Feet’ which is one of the famous local delicacies, and it was marinated very well, that the sourness and spicy soak into the skin yet its juicy and chewy as it is suppose to be. Some people might find this eerie as its chicken feet skin.

Kan Eng (6)
If you go to thai, and a dish that you must order which is ‘Braised Pork Leg’ without eating this, the makan session would be complete. Braised till the skin its soft that you use fork to open it up, it slide in so smooth and the mean pop up open. The meat and the fats is so soft till it feels like melting on the tongue and eat it with white rice is just perfect.

Kan Eng (7)
I forgot what the name for this vegetable, but its one type of my favourite veggies, fried not so long to maintain the crunchiness of the veggie and cook it plainly to get the best taste out of it, or another way to order is with sambal but Thai doesn’t have sambal.

Kan Eng (8)
‘Fried Oyster’ Some of them love fried oyster, but for me I just love our Malaysian version.

We were very satisfied with the dinner and ‘katui’ serve our table really good, and in Hatyai, do not worry about language barrier as now they can speak Cantonese, Mandarin or Hokkien (which is quite shocking for me) Total damage for the night is around 1000bhat which is around RM100 that we feel is really cheap. A recommeded restaurant if you do visit Hatyai.

When you ask any one out there, where is the best place to get Bak Kut Teh, most of the people would always say….go Klang lah…there got nice one. I have heard alot about Klang on its famous signature dish, but when always thinking of driving all the way there, I will think twice on it. Restaurant Teluk Pulai, First, I do not know the way, second I am just lazy when think of drivvvinngggg all the way there.

Never have I know that manage to try out a shop around that area that I would called it Bak Kut Teh Zone which mean not this shop, there are a few other shops too. This shop was recommended by my friends. So headed here to makan which is the second round. (moster ler them, including me as since drive all the way so far don care la..for second round)

Even though that there are parking space available but I have to park quite far to get to this shop with the amount of people flocking in yet it was quite late already.
Of course ‘Bak Kut Teh’ would be the signature dish in shop which sell no other things than this. When we were there, as I said we were quite late and alot of things in the pot is the same, I love all those piggy spare parts had left like 2-3 choices which is quite a turn off for me but never careless as the moment now, the most important now is the soup base.

I have always love Bak Kut Teh soup base have those strong a bit of herbal taste and the soup when you drink like will paint a layer on your tongue but this shop does not have the feel. Just a normal one.

None the less, I just love this ‘Chicken Feet’ as it was boil till the soup base soak into the feet and it was quite nice, soft on the skin.

I would say this would not be the best shop, as I remember I have ate once during when I was studying in college that serve bowl by bowl instead of a big pot and that was one of the best but I do not know where is it that was brought by my friends dad.

Hung Kee Wan Tan Mee is one of a classic restaurant that have been operating for more than 40 years in the market. When you talk about such duration, not many operating restaurants are able to maintain that long in recent market. Therefore, it had been a word of the mouth thing from near and far that quite a number of people recommend me about this place or even sometimes in a conversation, they are people mentioning about it too. Even though I pass that shop daily but it did not came across my mind that I wanted to try out until last week, I ask my brother about it and he said it was so so only, but since A lot of people recommend so just try it out.

Hung Kee (2)

The classic type of kopitiam style with its marble table and wooden chairs yet if you feel that you need air condition room, it is next to this shop but with very limited place.

Hung Kee (3)

‘Kam Kat’ drink is very nice, as it was squash first then add in and created a very nice flavor in it. I had 2 glass of this.

Hung Kee (4)

My brother recommend that this is a must order dish ‘Mushroom Chicken Feet’. I cannot deny that what he recommended was good, as the chicken feet and mushroom was cook till very soft. It was flavorful that it taste a bit of Chinese herbs taste yet soak well it. I enjoy eating it.

Hung Kee (5)

You can order ‘Sui Kow’ by how many pieces you want as there is not limitation in a bowl. The taste of the soup do not have the wan tan mee feel but the filling in it quite compact yet just taste so so .

Hung Kee (7)

‘Char Siew Wan Tan Mee’ is the very normal version of it, if you order this, you must tambah order of char siew as it taste very good. Fats of char siew is 1/3 of the whole piece of meat yet it taste very nice cover with char siew sauce, soft and juicy. I did order another place with extra char siew. The noodle is not that springy as it has to be but it definately have their own ingredients for it as it is quite thin yet not bad.

Hung Kee (8)

They were pretty generous with the wantan given on each place as it have 5 pieces in each bowl.

Hung Kee (6)

‘Duck Meat Wan Tan Mee’ is not bad too me as my brother like it. To me, I do not like the duck meat as it is mild in taste yet the meat is a bit hard not juicy.

Hung Kee (9)

As I remember that most of the stalls have curry version, so I order another extra bowl to try out their ‘Curry Wan Tan Mee’. I love this very much, as the curry is spicy yet not to the extend is flaming hot(I added the curry chili given) , yet the soup base serve is at near boiling point(which I like my noodle soup base to be hot that can burn your tongue). This definitely is recommended by me~

The food there is quite okay and we did enjoy our meal. Total bill came around RM23. It is advisable that to go there a bit early on weekend as the crowd can be crazy yet the parking space is very limited, you can park directly behind the shop alley.
