Hainanese Food

Browsing

It has been a while since I wake up early head out for breakfast till my friend came to my house and drag me out. Usually I will have a simple breakfast at home, either cereal or bread spread with peanut butter. It was not that early when my friend came pick me as she brought me to one of her favourite Hainanese breakfast food place to eat.

This little hawker area that operate in Taman Midah, in front of Public Bank if I am not mistaken. All these hawker area, do not have a proper name like Ah Meng Kopitiam or something something that you are able to recognize as this stall is famous among its neighborhood.

It is a very busy stalls and the amount of customers packing up this place is amazing, even the tables and chairs have to be extended to some parking lots or infront of some shop houses.

Price is pretty cheap  . .

Full house as we reach 11am . . As we start ordering, quite number of items had been sold out left with only 2-3 items in the menu, as we got no choice  . .. Look around to see what other customers order the most and turns out to be :

Curry Mee @ RM 4.40 is one of the famous dish here I suppose that 70% of people are eating this or are only left with this few choices. Its pretty unique that I did not know that Hainanese Curry Mee is a very simple version that filled with ‘cockles, taupok and pig skin’. Its a very simple dish actually that taste is just perfect for not heavy taste bud eater. Mild curry fragrant santan taste that is not so spicy and I ask for another scoop of chili to make it fiery red, yet its not too spicy. I guess have to just enjoy a plain style in the morning.

Scouted another thing is most of the customer’s there order Kopi and the colour of it looks good! solid dark brown that show’s the umph of the coffee. . .Order in 2 version, one cold and one hot.

Cheras (6)

Hot Kopi – its thick in flavour and you can taste strong robust coffee flavor and just comes to my liking. Perfect way to enjoy my morning coffee. . – REcommended – either in cold or hot. 

Cheras (7)

Prawn Mee @ RM 4.40 serve in small decent bowl that looks just fine for me on breakfast. Soup base looks pale yet can smell the taste of being cook with prawns. First sip of soup amaze me that it had a Penang version Har Mee and the slight different this Hainanese stall version bends towards more sweet. Taste pretty good tho.

After finish our meal and look around wonder why so many people order Wan Tan mee, and we decided to order along. Noodle is slight springy and I see many people order it in curry soup base. Then I put into my curry soup and turns out to taste better. If you do order this, order for Curry soup base with Wantan noodle.

This stall operate from 7am-12pm daily (I think)

Cheras (9)

I know its a bit hard to explain on this place, therefore I took some pictures on how to recognise it.

And there is only 1 bus stop here.

After finish our breakfast, she brought me to hunt another stall which is famous for ‘Ham Chi Peng’ which is a few stalls away from then Hainanese stall. Filled with variety that you can choose from and its family operate business.

Prawn fritters are good, crispy on outside and all edges and soft on inside. Add on with their chili sauce just pair very well. Do drop by to this stall if you are here for the Hainanese breakfast. Worth to buy as its cheap too . .:)

For morning breakfast that you prefer something not so solid in taste then this is one of the stall that you can drop by. I am sure that i will be coming back to try out their other stuff by being early.

It KL it is not easy to find nice and cheap food, especially those neighbourhood cafe which is now quite a trend but one cafe is quite well known in the neighbourhood is Ting’s Cafe which is located in SS2 that I find the food is nice and cheap or I would say worth recommending, a cafe that serve a mixture of Hainanese, Western and some Penang Hakwer Food Selection.

Tings Cafe

For smokers zone

and of course we prefer some where cold and let the smokers walk out to smoke.

Being a Hailanese myself, I actually have not really tried how this traditional cuisine taste like except the very famous and located most of the coffee shop the Hainanese Chicken Rice not until Lingzie and CK introduce us this Restaurant Hailanese Delights  newly open restaurant at Hotel 1926 which is located at the very famous Green House Coffee shop.

Hailanese Food Delight

But this newly open restaurant does not only offer authentic Hainanese food but also a cross over with western also which turns out that there are a few of their signature item.

 

Hailanese Food Delight (3)

Lets kick start off with the very authentic first dish which is ‘Hainanes Mushroom Soup’. As I heard the name I was like ‘WHAT’? puzzle in my head that is this consider authentic dish? It’s a clear soup style (which I thought the creamy soup or Campbell soup) as in the soup base is cook with chicken gizzard, mushroom, and some veggie ended up with ‘Tang Hoon’.

The soup base turns out wonderfully flavorful as I have not taste before, a bit of the gizzard taste yet chopped mushroom did not over power the soup. RM 12 for small and can serve for 4 person.

Hailanese Food Delight (4)

‘Braised Lamb with Lady’s Finger’ carefully cooks and stew of the New Zealand lamb that cooks till very juicy and tender. The gravy is just as good if you eat it with rice. RM18 If you are a lamb lover, this is a dish you must try.

Hailanese Food Delight (5)

‘Inche Kabin (Deep Fried Marinated Chicken)’ is deep fried till crispy on the skin and soft on the inside. RM15

Hailanese Food Delight (6)

‘Choon Piah (Hainanese Spring Roll)’ as I get to know that its different from Popiah. As I know the way the prepare, skin and ingredient used is different yet when it was deep fried out, the outer layer crispiness is different too but when diff with their very own homemade sauce its totally thumbs up.

Hailanese Food Delight (7)

RM 6 per roll

Hailanese Food Delight (8)

‘Chicken Curry Kapitan’ is a bit different from all the curry I have eaten before. The spices taste is different not really spicy yet its fragrant and is cook till dry. RM12

Hailanese Food Delight (2)

Another dish which is different And abit of western style which is ‘Macaroni Pie’ . I did not know this is also consider one of the Hainanese food but to me is more like a bit modern dish. Perfectly baked till the crust is a bit soft and crispy on the top yet when the fork is poke down to the bottom the aroma just flew out and make us very hungry. The macaroni is soft, cook till flavorful with chicken, button mushroom and carrot. RM 25

Hailanese Food Delight (9)

Hailanese Food Delight (10)

Next is the ‘Chicken Pie’ RM 25 as its about the same with pie but I prefer this more. We ended up having 2.

Hailanese Food Delight (11)

This is the dish that is very famous among the local crowd or among all Hainanese people which is the very traditional ‘Hainanese Chicken Rice’. The chicken is steam and cooks till the meat is juicy and soft then mixed with their very own style of soy sauce make it very flavorful. If you dip with their homemade ginger and chili sauce taste better. RM10

Hailanese Food Delight (12)

‘Fried Koay Teow’ I just had taste better ones before.

Hailanese Food Delight (13)

If you are a coffee lover, their ‘Black Coffee’ taste good too, brew aromatically.

It’s a great exposure to Hainanese authentic food. If you would want to taste something different you can look for this restaurant.
