Hungry people like us, we would need food to start off with and of course we would want to order back the food what we had last round to ensure the quality is there. Verdict 70% near.

Potato Leak soup is good, thick, creamy and  just prefect as what I like. Have to eat it hot right after its been serve. After it is left cold, it taste weird.

Fried Jalapeno

Beer lovers would love this, as it pairs well with my Guinness. Not really spicy as it is as we believe its a tone down version.

One of the best dish or my favourite is Gammon Steak with Pineapple & Fried Duck Egg @ RM45. pan grill to perfection that the steak is cook well, soft and easily cut. Sauce that added along make it moist and not too dry. Loving it. – recommended

Dirty Nelly (9)

DIRTY NELLY’S – Mix of PORK, BEEF & LAMB with their own secret herbs. Garnished with English pepper and Jalapeño peppers, topped with grilled bacon and sunny side up duck eggs and mustard mash on the side.  RM53

This burger have a sligt different taste compare to what we have 2 months ago. Meat did not mince well this round as a slight cut the meat are broken into pieces. Taste is pretty different too as its slightly dry. I guess it was full house crowd that cook have to give a bit discount.

Dirty Nelly (10)

Nelly’s Belly Served with steamed vegetables, onion and apple sauce @ RM 45. Pork lovers, you will fall deeper in love with this as this huge ass rack enough to KO you, with pork fats belly that melts in your mouth, soft cut meat that easy for you to chew and I pair it with my beer and mustard. Its satisfaction. – Recommended

I get to know KL Live as a place to hang out for events with their huge club space on second floor. As the place now had went over major renovation and currently host a few F&B outlets that is quite promising. One of the outlet is Dirty Nelly that serve nice Non-Halal Meal, that is quite well known over their Damansara branch. I guess, by opening at this place is good news for KL people or those who work nearby.

I got curious about their name and ask how did they actually come out with the name itself and here is how the story goes:

Over a hundred years ago, a middle aged farmer and his faithful pig, Dirty Nelly lived in a small village in Northern England which was engirdled and secluded, for the most part untrodden as yet by tourist or landscape painter. It was a fact known to all that Miss Nelly was the oldest in the land, even the border Reiver clans of Southern Scotland had no doubt on the subject.

One unfortunate day, the village was cursed with famine. The crops were dying and the villagers were starving. Having nothing to eat himself, the farmer stood before Dirty Nelly, and contemplated. Finally, he made up his mind to sacrifice Dirty Nelly for the sake of the people. It was a relief to the others for Dirty Nelly was so large that she fed the village for an entire week which regained the villager’s morale and uplifted their spirits.

Yet, at this new age, few understood and still fewer knew this but with that, that little village went on to prosper… [Sourse from: Dirty Nelly website]

tEK seng (4)

Start off with Fish Maw Soup @ RM 20 a bland mixture of many ingredient that during CNY this is one of the soup that many people ordered. Clear in taste that makes it a perfect soup to start off with.

tEK seng (5)

Every restaurant has its signature item and in Tek Sen, this Fried Roast Pork is one of their best seller that many customers will have to order if they dine here.

tEK seng (8)

Not many people like this dish, Bitter gourd fried along with salty duck egg and mince meat, as the bitterness of it had prevent many people on liking it including me, I used to dislike this dish yet I have been tought on how to enjoy it. Since then, I do order it when I have the change. A dish that fried simple that bitterness of the vegetable is not too strong and mix well with the taste of salty duck [email protected] RM 12

tEK seng (9)

Another one of their signature range is their curry. So we ordered on their Curry Fish (sting Ray) @ RM 23, As I like how my Asam fish is sourness is stronger and after taste of it is a bit spicy at the end.

One of my friend always dine here and he never miss this dish which is 3 steam egg. Different types of egg which is (century, duck and normal egg) to steam on it. A dish which is very simple, fragrant as just add on some garlic oil on top then add on some soy sauce, you will enjoy this simple dish alot~ @ RM 6

At Tek Sen, which is a restaurant that many of my friends love to dine and no doubt too that they have gain international popularity from a few types of magazine came by to feature them. A place to hunt if you are looking for nice homecook meal without disappointing.

Continue our food hunt, as direct after the Wan Tan Mee (click here), then our next station that Jasonmumbles rarely miss when he is back to Melaka is one of his favorite stall, Hajjah Mona Asam Pedas which he rate one of the best Asam Pedas that he come across so many stalls which Asam Pedas also know as one of Melaka delicacies.

Asam Pedas (1)

As I have been to the famous Jonker Street (from Donald and Lily’s Restaurant) and I did not know that by walking distance of around 5 – 10 minutes you are able to reach this stall which is located to the newly build hotel by the river if I am not mistaken.

Asam Pedas (2)

This place is damm pack with alot of people with its famous asam pedas that attracts many outstation customer also.

Asam Pedas (4)

The Asam Pedas is prepared fresh daily to cater for their demanding crowd. . .

Asam Pedas (3)

Then you just choose what type of fish you want and choose the extra side dish like egg, chicken, fried fish and others.

Asam Pedas (5)

This would be the normal set that every one would order, asam pedas with a plate of white rice and smack with a fried egg.

Asam Pedas (6)

Of course I always prefer mine with salty duck egg . ..

Asam Pedas (8)

Asam Pedas (7)

Famous for Asam Pedas with their mild curry which is not so spicy yet a bit fragrant and perfect to eat with rice.

Asam Pedas (9)

According to Jason, their taste is not consistent as usually he would usually order a plate of Asam pedas to try first as if the taste for the night is at the best, he would order more. . and if the taste is not on par, he would just finish just one plate, and on that night we had, he said that their quality was not at their best so had just only one order.

I have been reading a lot of status this morning, yeah, I know its hard to drag our ass to work since most of the people start to work today yet with very heavy Chinese New Year Mood and bombard with tons of work after a few days off, its kinda pain in the ass. Since now I am at Penang, let me start off with Penang Street Food first. Lebuh Kimberly hawker center had always been my all time favorite area to eat which I had been long time did not visit this place. Its a very cheap place to eat in.

Sua Tau Keh

It is usually pack with local crowds after 7.30pm. It is advisable to go early or if you would want to enjoy the local feel with standing and waiting for tables and manning your area then anytime would be good. Most of the hawkers here had been operating for more than 10 years already and its had been a signature area.

Sua Tau Keh (2)

Let’s start off with the street famous Char Koey Teow. In this stall, its famous that you can add on additional item, such as Mantis Prawn, Chinese Sausage, Duck egg or prawns. It is best that they uses charcoal to fried, the taste would be different.

Sua Tau Keh (3)

This is my plate of ‘Char Koey Teow add with Duck Egg and Mantis Prawn’. Perfectly fried, dried and a bit sticky yet with wok hei and duck egg build in different aroma in it, is something which I expect. RM5

Sua Tau Keh (4)

Next a stall which I would not miss is the ‘Tong Sui Stall’. Cost RM1-RM3.50

Sua Tau Keh (5)

‘Almond Soup Tong Sui’ is the signature of this stall. Not many people enjoy the taste of it but I have learn the fair taste, very thick in almond taste, not very watery yet add on with the yau char kuih, I can just still imagine the taste of it. Good for health as what I have been told by my grandmother when I was young.

Sua Tau Keh (6)

Next is the ‘Cham’ I always had too. Clear tasty non very sweet tong sui base that goes along very well after eating of so many street food.

Sua Tau Keh (7)

‘Red Bean Soup’ that had been boild to build up the aroma yet the bean is not soft and a bit solid as that is how the preserve the tasty’ness of it.

Sua Tau Keh (8)

Heading to next stall is the ‘Koay Teow Soup’, again as not only they sell only the noodle yet you can add on additional dish with their famous signature ‘Cham’ (consist of egg, chicken feet, pig intestine and taufu) or if you do not like som eof the item, you can just order randomly.

Sua Tau Keh (9)

‘Dry Koey Teow’ taste quite good, not very salty as expected yet the koey teow is silky smooth yet a bit oily make it taste good. RM3

Sua Tau Keh (19)

One of my favorite ‘Pig Intestine’, been boil and steam very very soft, yet very juicy when bite it as the watery home cook soup soy base had made it very aromatic.

Sua Tau Keh (10)

Another stall which is very famous with local folks is this stall that you must not miss. ‘Kuih Chap’ that serve with homemade kuih style as noodle base yet add in all the Duck spare part in it. Besides their famous signature, they also do serve porridge which is a top notch too.

Sua Tau Keh (11)

can add on this part if you like.

Sua Tau Keh (12)

This are all the ingrediants that going to add into the bowl.

Sua Tau Keh (13)

Here comes my very ‘Kuih Chap’ with all the duck spare part.

Sua Tau Keh (14)

With the home made kuih that replace noodle which is a must for ‘Kuih Chap’. I just miss this alot, very aromatic soup base that filled with duck and salty taste yet the meat of the duck is very soft, and my mouth watering meal. 1 bowl is enough to kill me off. Small RM5

Sua Tau Keh (15)

Another stall that I discover which is the ‘Belacan Fried Chicken’ which walk a bit further down from that 3 stalls.

Sua Tau Keh (16)

Sua Tau Keh (17)

Deep fried as very crispy on the edge, yet the chicken meat is very filled with belacan taste as I buy it hot from the wok.

Sua Tau Keh (18)

One of the thing I fell in love with this stall is the ‘Deep Fried Salted Fish Taufu’. Although its not similiar like ‘Chou Taufu’ but it something I love. Deep fried till the outer layer is solid yet when you bite on it, you can taste the softness of the taufu yet salted fish aroma is there and dip with the chili sauce given, is something I could not ask for. RM 2-RM 3 sell in 10 pieces.

This is one of my favorite Penang Street Food area. Recommended~

I did heard about at Bukit Mertajam there is one famous Char Koay Toew stall located along a road side. Then went over to find my friend she do not really know the place so ended up in this stall which is she familiar with. It was quite late though around 1.30am looking for my supper over the mainland..hehehe

I do not know what is the name of the stall call but then there is a Chinese name I also do not know how to interpret.

The funny thing is that when I went to took the picture of what they were doing, both of them were actually trying their best to pose for me. This is how they ended up look like.

The place was rather empty because of the time.

When the plate was serve, I was quite shock that this is actually my very first time I seen a ‘Char Koey Teow’ add egg is the bulls eye type instead of fried it along. The taste is so so, nothing to boast a bout yet it is a bit oily yet cannot duck egg been fried doesnt taste much diff compare with normal egg.
