Back in the streets of Jalan Ipoh, I was introduce to this little shop located around the area that this Bak Kut Teh Restaurant Son In stall used to operate on a 3 wheel hawker cart back in 15 years ago, with many people drive from far just to eat this stall and used to wait for hours that operate from 11pm onwards. Now they have move into a shop that Ken highly recommend me this place if were looking for nice pork stew soy sauce with Bak Kut Teh along as he had been one of the loyal customers for many many years.

The shop might not be pack with people but what I was told by Ken that he had tried all the Bak Kut Teh shop in this road and by far this shop offer one of the best. This stall use traditional method of cooking by using herbs to cook along with the pork ribs unlike others use only cabbage, mushroom, bean curd and others.

One of their signature is the ‘Oily Rice’ that must not to be miss, very fragrance with pig oil yet eat along with Bak Kut Teh is just something you do not want to miss out. I ended up having 3 bowls of this.

Then I order what they have and to start off with is ‘Bak Kut Teh’ Soup base with a mixture of all pork types and I love it with herbs taste on the soup base which is suits to my liking. The intestine and pork ribs all are soft, by dipping it with my mixture of dark soy sauce, chili and garlic is something I enjoy. This serve 1 pax.

In Penang, when comes to breakfast, there are a lot of places to choose from. One of the place that I have last visited was this very classic kopitiam, did came here when I was in college time but then did not manage to drag my ass up after that, since that this round I had become a early person, so I manage to drag my friend for breakfast at this place again.

For the very first thing in this coffee shop or consider signature stall for the coffee shop is the loh bak. It is now had become a family business with the dad as the deep fry person and the mom and daughter helping out.

The ‘Loh Bak’ and ‘Heh Chi(prawn cake)’ is kinda irresistible. I always will order at least 3 each. Well deep fried yet the loh bak is very fragrance with its 5 spices yet the meat is solid yet the heh chi is fried till very crispy and inside of it hidden two prawns.

Its even harder to resist when the loh bak or heh chi is dip in this very own starchy ‘Loh’ or the ‘Chili Sauce’. RM 3.90 for this

The ‘Hokkien Mee (Prawn Mee)’ with its very burning hot soup base is something which I prefer yet the soup is aromatic with the prawn shell that had been cook for hours and added on more chili had make me enjoy every drop of it and I was sweating all over when I finish it. RM2.50

‘Wan Tan Mee’ in this shop is reasonably price at RM3 with the way the auntie adds on the ingredient. The noodle had been bath in hot and cold water for couple of times makes it the noodle quite springy.

For early morning breakfast, I must say, its quite satisfying with the loh bak stall highly recommended.

This shop had been in my wanted list food hunting for quite long time, usually which the time is not ngam that me and my friends ended up eat other choices. So this round, we were totally lost do not know what to eat then remember this shop. The place is not big but always quite pack.

A modern living room style cross that came across my mind on their interior, quite a cozy place but it’s a bit warm after a while.

Besides the ala cart menu, they do offer set menu also which is kinda worth to try out.
We order set meal ‘3 Cup Chicken Rice’. Thick in sauce that goes along well with the rice but there is nothing special to comment on. RM 14.90

‘Pork Chop Rice Set’ RM13.90 with traditional method of Taiwan, their rice will always pour on with mince meat and the gravy. Its flavorful with the rice and . . .
The pork chop, was well deep fried and I guess pork cannot deep fried too long that will make the prok meat abit solid and chewy. I still prefer the fried chicken on Shin Lin Taiwan street food snack.
Their ‘Milk Tea’ is good, thick and quite fragrance with the tea taste and the pearl is the type that I like, chewy and a bit solid like chewing gum. RM3.50

After a while in this shop, I remember that, there is another Taiwan Food which is quite good mention by my friend and I heard during my colleage time long long time ago was the one at 1-Stop. Wondering is the shop still there.

We were out of idea of where to eat, very undecided then what they have suggested I do not like, what I suggest they don like. So ended up very cacat till went to new area to eat… Balakong~ Then Kenji mention that this place got very nice wrapped chicken. Then fast fast ask him to drive there.

When reach there and went in, I asked Kenji again, this shop can makan 1 ah… no people eh, he said you don talk so much, just wait and eat.

The very first order is ‘Yeong Tau Fu’. Its not bad but I have eaten better stalls compare to this, if their sweet sauce were a bit stronger in taste then would be good.

One of the thing that should not miss in this shop is ‘Chee Baw Gai’ (Paper Wrapped Chiken).When it was served, pass beside me, the keharum’ness of the chicken travels through my nose and instantly I was hungry.

Then they rest also ask me fast fast take picture la..hungry d..Then just snap 2 and even I cannot tahan wait to taste it. Finding difficulties to open the wrap but once open, its like just found a treasure buried inside the sand. The drumstick is flooded by the sea of thick gravy and the smell of it..damm nice!

‘Vegetable stir Fried’ Something simple and nothing to boost about.
‘Sweet and Sour Fish’ if I am not mistaken. Crispy on the outer layer yet the mild sauce had accompanied well with the fish and fish meat is soft on the inside showing the sign of fresh fish, accompanied by a bowl of rice is a perfect combination.
‘Butter Milk Pork’ is something I thought yewww.. but I ended up eating 3 pieces. A very thin layer of crispy skin and the pork was deep fried well that did not make it very hard in the inside. The sauce is nice, buttery yet taste a bit of the Thai sauce from Kentucky and eat it while its hot, the fragrance is there.

I cannot remember the pricing as I have lost the receipt but I remember 5 of us and each of us paid around RM12-13 which is quite reasonable for such a dish.

My choice of recommendation is the ‘Chee Bau Kai’ (Paper Wrapped Chicken) which is their signature dish here. If you miss this dish is you don plan to have sex after getting married.

Now is the Vegetarian season and in KL to do that is really a pain in the ass, that’s why I have hold up this posting and decided to posting around this time. I have to thanks to Sidney (BigBoysOven) for the invites. If its not him, then would not have known this shop.

This shop is currently managing by the daughter and the mom is responsible on most of the dishes. All their ingredient are very pure and some are important from a few countries.


Renovated with very nice and cozy interior that really suits on what they are serving.

A variety of food you can get there which is the same as the normal menu in any restaurant but its just that in vegetarian form.


The aroma of the dish was flying around the area and it smells good. Can’t wait to eat it. The food presentation is like the wedding dinner set. If I am not mistaken, this is the ‘Combination Platter’. A dish that you would not want to miss.

I like this the most, ‘Vegetarian Baked Bacon’ very chewy and abit crispy, the sauce that topping on top is a kick on your taste bud. Once eaten, it just cant stop cuz its taste very the same.

‘Shark Fin Egg’ well fried with ‘wok hei’ yet the structure is very similar and you will wonder how they make it till it taste so good.
‘Cuttle Fish with Satay Sauce’ chewy and springy texture, enjoying every bite of it with very fragrance satay sauce top on top.
Deep fried till the outer layer is crispy and preserving the softness of the prawns in it. The own made mayo had make it a great combination taste will be the ‘Golden Prawn Mayo’.
‘Ginseng and Turnip Soup’ taste like home cook, deliciously finish the whole bowl till the very last drop.
Toufu Topped with Preserve Vegetable’ salty enough yet mix well with the taste of the toufu.
‘Mixed Veggie’ a perfect fried of vegetable that the lotus root is abit crispy and the aroma of the nuts jus sunk in make it a good dish that you would not want to miss.
‘Sizzling Spicy Fish’ Sizzling hot plate with the gravy pour upon still boiling and the sauce taste so good that it had mix well with the fish. The homemade gravy is one of the signature in there. Anything that with this gravy, it’s a good try.

‘Stir Fried Prawns in Sweet and Sour Sauce with Man Tou’. Man tou was friend to perfection as expected the crust is crispy yet inside is very soft. Makes it a great couple. As we tried out the prawns, we could not believe the texture of it. Taste so similiar with springy feeling.
‘Terriyaki Mock Duck with Scramble Eggs’. Love the terriyaki sauce that brings up along the aroma of the vegetarian duck meat. If I were to go there for lunch, this would be a great order.

We enjoy the whole vegetarian meal is a good experience yet the food there is first class yet their price is very reasonable as you can see in the menu. Since now is the season, and having a headache where to find one nice Vegetarian Restaurant, this restaurant is highly recommended.

Was early on the Saturday morning and called Chris where was he. Told me that he is in mechanic shop and ask him wanna go out makan or not. He asked me to go find him and bring me to 1 to eat ‘Siew Yuk’ very nice 1. So he brought me to this place in the housing area dalam dalam. Never been to this area before. As Chris told me that during the weekdays it is very hard to get a seat and have to wait very long to get your turn. During weekend a bit easy.

It was only 11.50am when I reached there and to my surprise the coffee shop already full of people and the que of ta pauing is already there. At least 5-7 ppl in the que.

This is the famous roast pork that been the signature of the place. As I observed all the tables around there, all the customer at least would order 1 full plate of ‘Siew Yuk’ the same goes to all the ppl tau pau.

This is what I have for my lunch, ‘Mix'(char siew, siew yuk and chicken). Not cheap for a small portion which cost me RM7 and the pieces of it can also count by fingers. It is like 4 pieces of siew yuk, 4-5 pieces of char siew and 4 pieces of chicken. WTF!!! The char siew is okay okay onli and the chicken is noting special.

Totally cannot denied that why the business is so good. The Siew Yuk’ is totally crispy on the crust itself its like eating chips, the the fragrance in the meat is just nice along with it. The fats on the siew yuk and the meat is just perfectly the right blend. Not too much fats and not too much meat. Must get a taste on it. Highly recommended
