Jalan Alor


Ah Hee Claypot Chicken Rice is another piece of hidden gem at Jalan Alor. My ex colleague introduce this place to me as this is one of their favourite stall. Was told that ah Hee is an old player in this area as he had been preparing Claypot Chicken rice for over 30 years and there are no successor after him. Currently only he and his wife is operating this little stall and do have patient if on that day is too pack with hungry diners.

Love their salted veggie soup as it gives you a very homecook taste. Sourish enough, yet clear to give you hint of sourish, sweetness of chicken meat that makes it a good pairing with their clay-pot chicken rice.

It is a simple street dish that takes about 15 minutes to cook to perfection where Ah Hee topped it with generous of larp cheong (Chinese Sausage), chicken meat which is tender and juicy, with a little hint of fragrant burn soy smell when it served. Loving it as, this gives you a very simple street dish that is not overpowering. Price range RM 8 – RM 16

If you love something classic, this is one of the place to hunt for.

This is not a ghost house yet is indeed a miniature landmark for Tengkat Tong Shin (a street next to Jalan Alor). It was a wet day yesterday, while walking back to carpark to pick up my car, my colleague told me this little black kiosk is a new player in this neighborhood and it seems they sell pretty good patisseries.  Then decided to check em out later in the afternoon. I must say, Le Petit Rococo is a new hidden gem in this busy street of TengKat Tong Sin that is run by this young chap from Tajkestan (another country that I just learnt yesterday), where only a month old.

This this little cafe only operate with 3 Ikea tables and 6 chairs. Do imagine the limitation of the seating area.

Le petit Rococo (4)

I am in love with their homemade Patisseries as was told is French style inspired cooking from their main kitchen down the road in a hotel.

Le petit Rococo (9)

Since it was a rainy day, I am in love with the cool breeze, sipping my coffee under this felt like heritage area (which is not), under this run down building and the moment is just perfect.

Le petit Rococo (11)

Ordered a large Scones @ RM 4.50 and Espresso to try on (the only drink he serve). Totally in love with the cutlery he used as there is a branding in it, with this pair of heavy gold fork and knife is indeed impressive! Scones is perfect to my linking where he use oven to head it up, where the outer layer is crispy on its crust yet soft inside. It is aromatic and with a little cut of butter to eat along and a sip of his espresso is PERFECTO!

Le petit Rococo (13)

Their coffee taste is quite different where for the first time I do not know how to describe as I am not really an espresso lover however this is quite acceptable for me. Since scones was good then decided to order another piece of his best seller which is Red Velvet (which I am not a big fan of it) since is his best seller and done in a loaf version, certainly it is unique.

Le petit Rococo (14)

One of the best Red Velvet that I have come across that it does make me confuse a bit, first it is being heated in an oven to make the outer layer crispy yet inside is so soft yet not too sweet, and enjoying every single bite of it.

Then the owner told me that this stall Le Petiti Rococo is actually to create awareness for the restaurant and he is pushing all his guest to his full scale restaurant, Rococo Cafe Restaurant that located down the road in Hotel Melange on the 7th floor. Certainly I am going to check them out!

Total Damage is RM 19

Friendly owner whom is from Tajikstan where I totally have not heard about this country and found out in Google.


facts from Google : Tajikistan is a Central Asian country bordering Afghanistan, China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. It’s known for its rugged mountains, which are popular for hiking and climbing. The Fann Mountains, near the national capital of Dushanbe, encompass snow-capped peaks that rise above 5,000 meters. Within the range is Iskanderkulsky Nature Refuge, a noted bird habitat whose namesake, Iskanderkul, is a turquoise lake formed by glaciers.

Heard alot about this place and only manage to came by visit once when half drunk 2-3 years ago and still remember clearly it does taste good. Not till recently with my new job and I am base at Jalan Alor and visited this place once so called famous Ngau Kee Beef Noodles, to me now is no longer a great one.

Ngau Kee (1)

It used to have a huge crowd for it and I reach around 9pm and there were only a few tables.

Ngau Kee (2)

Style of setting up still the same and now the difference is only foreigners is managing it now while the owner is at the side chit chatting with friends.

Ngau Kee (4)

Ngau Kee (5)

Their signature is their home made chili sauce that is mild spicy yet fragrant with some herb taste along with sourish end.

Ngau Kee (6)

I ordered their signature which is Dry mix Beef Noodle, top with mince meat and a side bowl of mix spare parts at RM 9

Ngau Kee (7)

Ngau Kee (9)

Noodle is alright as pretty much the same with wan tan mee noodles.


Then went back another round for their soup base and surely to say that their quality had dropped so much, where the soup base is no longer pungent in taste and blend where I believe there are better ones out there.

I am sure many of you are familiar with this brand Sangkaya, hail all the way from Kuala Lumpur which is our proud local made products. Original plan started off to be toast and kaya product that had made them ended up with Thai Coconut Ice cream. Started off with a mini stall at this famous street Jalan Alor in year November 2014, along with a huge buzz from local media and bloggers for this famous Thai inspired street coconut ice cream had made its mark to many foodie that is one of a top dessert to hunt for. Since then, Sangkaya have emerge as one of the most famous Coconut Ice Cream in the industry.

Sangkaya (1)

Till date, this famous brand have grown to a huge franchise chain with current standing of 39 outlets all over Klang Valley and some other states where they just started from a small stall at  Jalan Alor. Since January 15th, their small stall have now migrated to their new flagship outlet that just opens its door to public that offer more products now.

Sangkaya (2)

This is their new cafe ice cream concept that offering some new desserts and coffee.. 

Sangkaya (3)
Sangkaya (4)

This is their classic menu with range from their Signature @ RM 10.50 with 4 scoop of ice-cream where most of us is having, along with Cup 3 scoop @ RM 7.30 and cone @ RM 3.10.

Sangkaya (5)

My usual is The Signature @ RM 10.50 that we get to diy our own 3 toppings. Usually I have their coconut ice cream as this round, I choose 2 of their new flavours which is Cha Yen and the other flavor is

Sangkaya (6)

Sangkaya (7)

Here you go on some of their new upcoming products, with Caramel Pudding with 2 flavour ice cream of your choice.

Sangkaya (8)

Sangkaya (9)

Waffle at RM 7.20 would be my choice as I find the belgium waffle to my liking, slightly crust on the outside and inside it is soft. Certainly pairs well with their signature coconut Ice cream and dress with their home made gula Melaka.

Sangkaya (10)

Another two things which is new to me, one pair as below their new SangCoffee which is long black with infuse coconut and SangLatte also infuse with coconut milk. Totally prefer their Sang Black as love the strong coffee taste and a hint of refreshing coconut taste at the end. Certainly a more unique cup of coffee compare to other cafe. Found out that its a local blend coffee beans. 

Sangkaya (11)

Sangkaya (12)

Another product that is new to me is this Sangkaya Cendol @ RM 10.50. Serve with their signature coconut ice cream, topped with grass jelly, corn, peanuts, Gula Melaka and coconut Flesh. (They do not have red bean in their version)

Sangkaya (13)

Other than their Signature Coconut Ice Cream which is the crowd favorite, you should try out their Coffee and waffle. No doubt, this Famous Sangkaya Coconut Ice Cream had attracted many foodie from local and internationally.
