Browsing

In KL it is quite hard to find some place that serve nice instant cook Pork Noodle, and as one of the recent introduction by my friend Ian that turns out to be  one of his favorite place when comes to Pork Noodle soup, Restaurant Hong Cha that serve a mixture of Japanese home made sushi and their mains are Pork Noodle Soup.

Hong Cha (1)

Located in the heart of OUG right whereby pasar area, or infront of BP station if I am not mistaken is filled with a side by side kopitiam that flank this shop.

Hong Cha (2)

As I was told by my friend, they do sell in the morning/ afternoon session right behind at the corner coffee shop that most people would know and pricing its slightly cheaper compare to this shop that only cater for night crowd.

Hong Cha (3)

Price are pretty decent and there are other options too if you dislike pork noodle.

Hong Cha (5)

I was highly recommend by Ian to go for dry option that it actually separate the soup and noodle. Look at those chunky pork lard that they have added in and shredded pork along.

Hong Cha (6)

Then serve along with a bowl of pork soup that filled with some seafood. ‘Pork and Seafood Mee’ @ RM 6.50.

Hong Cha (7)

They are pretty generous with the ingredient that being added in with chunks of pork meat and best of all, which for the first time I came across they added some seafood, squid and prawns to make the soup base more sweet. Slightly salty to my liking with a fried garlic and oil being added on to make it a perfect bowl. Looking at the additional item I can add, of course egg is a must to be added to make it even better.

Overall, I still prefer my pork noodle soupy version and this place is still quite a decent place to dine for pork noodle during night time.  By my list so far, I still love the stall at Restaurant Win Heng Seng for the instant cooking pork noodle at Jalan Imbi.

Over the weekend, my best friend Ian was quite free then gave me a call ‘Woi, want to go have lunch? Go Batu Caves there makan’? I was like harr.. serious? Batu Caves? then he was like very good eh, will never introduce you wrong food, then I call Ken along too. Driving from my side to another side to hunt for this restaurant. Pan Heong Restaurant is one of a well know restaurant that attracts many from near and far. He also mention that why I should come here to makan is that they use Charcoal to cook! anything cook with charcoal always create another flavor out of it.

Pan Heong (1)

Pan Heong Restaurant is very well known to many locals especially their neighborhood area. With the quality of food and of course their very reasonable price had attracted people from all over then. It was Sunday morning and I was blow away on the numbers of customers queueing up for a table.

Pan Heong (2)

My other group of friends came earlier, therefore we got a spot pretty fast.

Pan Heong (3)

As when I dine in a new place, I always love to observe other tables on what they are ordering or what are the usual repeat order that they(diners) eat.

Pan Heong (4)

As my friend told me, they started off in under a tree and their business had grew so fast then they move to shop lot themselves.

Pan Heong (5)

Started off with a simple Vegetable @ RM 11

Pan Heong (6)

We did not order white rice therefore we go for their Fried Rice as I see many people order. It is a very simple dish that they fried it till very aromatic and ‘wok hei’ as I always love my fried rice to have chinese sausage. @ RM 15

Pan Heong (7)

This is one of their signature HOr Fun and supposedly to order their ‘Sang Har Mee’ but as majority would prefer this for this round. @ RM 15. I love the gravy texture, smooth with egg add up onto while it is serving very hot to let it cook itself while its hot. Smooth gravy and pair very well with the koey teow.

Pan Heong (8)

Next one of my favourite is their Kao Yoke Mee Hoon @ RM 17. Mee hoon was not fried too dry, moist as it originally suppose to be and eat along with the soft fatty Kao Yuk is just perfect. – Recommended!

Pan Heong (9)

Nam Yu (fermented bean curd) Pork is one of the dish not many places can cook well. I must say this place have done it well, that I nearly whack the whole plate by myself instead of sharing it with another 7 more pax. It is well marinated and deep fried to the edge is crispy, and the taste of fermented bean curd is there that do not over power the taste or too strong. – REcommended! @ RM 18.50

Pan Heong (10)

One of the dish that many table order is their Porridge. Then we opt for Fish Porridge @ RM 18. Silky smooth texture of porridge just like the one I had it in Hong Kong, sign’s of being boil long enough to come into this texture. Notice that the fish meat cook instantly under the super boiling hot porridge. Its a bit mild in taste yet just taste good~ Heee,, for sick people, it would be a good meal for you guys.

Overall, the food is not bad and the portion charge with the prices I would say its on the cheaper side as total bill came to RM 105 and dine with total 8 pax.

As on the way back to KL, and I just love my friend Ian as he always love to find food during his sales discover over the other states then will bring me there whenever he had the chance or when I follow him, cuz he knows I love to eat in those kind of hidden places. Kedai Makanan Rasa Lain is one of a good recommendation.

This journey, he decided to stop by Ipoh and bring me to this Bercham area which is the other side of Ipoh, that I will consider pretty outskirt already. If you consider coming from Ipoh town it will easily take about 30 mins – 45 mins to reach here.

Rasa Lain (1)

Neverthe less, if you ask me to drive another round again to this place, I think I am capable or driving myself here as I did recognise a few buildings. . .:D

Rasa Lain (2)

Okay, cut things short that we reach here pretty early as no wonder he hurry me from Penang, that he tried to reach here to beat the heavy dinner crowd. I notice quite a moment later upon our arrival, family by family start to pouring in and I asked Ian, that the people there “sot sot (means crazy in hokkien) one? so early come dinner? as it was bout 5.45pm – 6pm and near half full already.” He explain people around the area eat dinner early!

According to Ian, you must pre-order their signature item if not, its hard for you to order their signature item on the night itself as they are trying to safe the best for the customers either by choosing one of the item. As to order, I let Ian take care of what;s for dinner .

Rasa Lain (3)

Signature Claypot glass noodle

Rasa Lain (4)

It was serve boiling hot as when I took a few other picture it was misty and the side of it is still boiling. The soup is sweet with freshness that cook along with the crab and glass noodle cook to perfection. Crab were fresh and meat is hard.

Rasa Lain (5)

Another signature ‘Cheeze Prawn Claypot’ while it was servce right infront of me, the smells entrails to my nose and I istantly swallow my saliva as the smells is just too good! As we dig up, look at the cheeze ooze and flow around the claypot with its stickiness texture like pizza, I just cant wait to put it into my mouth. Cheeze topple nicely on the fresh prawn and eat it along with rice is just a match made in heaven.

Rasa Lain (6)

Vegetable nothing to shout about .. .

Rasa Lain (7)

As we finish our meal, I observe alot of table also order this ‘Saito Fishball’ which is homemade and being steam in high temperature then after that just add on some simple soy sauce with fish oil and garlic. To me is nothing to shout about too as its just another home made fish ball that are a bit bouncy.

I find the price is quite reasonable as 3 of us ate about RM 110 for all the above. It was another great and satisfying mean that Ian had intro me, as on the way back to KL he stop and buy 2 small bottles of mineral water and mee too. Only found out that the dish uses quite alot MSG as no wonder it taste super good!
