[repost from year 2011] – updated pictures with all broken links.

In this neighborhood, I always thought that the area only I know is on the Food Foundry area that side which only filled with food to hunt. . never did I know that actually there is another small kopitiam area located on another side of it which is quite famous for its lunch crowd among all my colleague and one of the shop that they introduce me which is Hong Seng Kopitiam which is famous for its BBQ Pork (Char Siew) and also their Chicken Rice..

Chicken Rice (1)

Left office around 12.30pm where was told to head there earlier to avoid the crazy queue. When I reach, the queue is already up to the next 2 shop lot.

Chicken Rice (2)

Chicken Rice (3)

Just a simple chicken rice stall like that which is only famous for its BBQ pork can attract many pork lovers out there. Roast pork hanging and the feel and look of it doesn’t attract me much, also decided to give it a try.

Chicken Rice (4)

Chicken Rice (5)

Then we order the Char Siew of 6 pax, that comes in whole big plate like this with a bit mix of Roast pork and chicken was not in the list cuz they said its not good. BBQ pork is good, with burn end is crisp, soft juicy meat that well coated with their own special sauce and I just cant stop eating it. Roast Pork did not impress me that much as I had better ones before, as here the head is not that crispy as I like and the meat is quite dry  even though the meat with fats are my type just doesn’t give me a kick in it.

Chicken Rice (7)

Ahhh, this sure impress all of us, sour and spicy soup, which is quite sour enough that boiled till a bit messy with the ingredients and just lack of not spicy enough. If it had add a bit more of dry chili then would be perfect but no complain as their version win a lot of places.

Chicken Rice (9)

Then I saw next table order some pig innards then I was wondering where to order that, its located behind section operate by a old uncle that sell s porridge and I order pig intestine which is good! Chewy, and flavorful from the soy sauce he is cooking. RM 8 for this portion which is pretty reasonable. . .

Chicken Rice (8)

Our whole lunch meal comes to a total of RM8 per pax after divided out with 6 pax.. which is a good value and satisfy . . I would say, just attack the BBQ pork here, do try out others too if you like . . Just be there early to avoid the heavy lunch crowd at 1pm.

In the city, there are actually lots of things to eat. There are one street in particular that pretty well know for a lot of beef noodles. It really depends on your taste preference as many of them love this stall, Lai Foong Beef Noodle that located in Jalan Tun H.S Lee that operate inside a kopitiam called Kedai Kopi Lai Foong. There is one opposite too that some of my friends prefer over that stall.

For this stall, it had been ages since I last visited this place and few years back I was firstly introduce to it as my ex company boss love this stall alot and the secretary have to drive all the way down here to make a take away for him.

lai hong (1)

An early coffeeshop place that you might wanna consider to drop by for some good food or a beef noodle soup in Pudu.

lai hong (2)

I was also told that not to miss their Char Koey Teow and I tried ordering using Hokkien and obviously they don really udnerstand me. Means not Penang Char Koey Teow but the next stall auntie is surely from Penang that sells Jawa mee and stuff. Would try that next round.

lai hong (4)

Beef noodle here are pretty good as you stand nearby the stall you can smell the aroma of the beef noodle soup already. Imagine how many times those beef slices have to dip into the soup to make it cook and towards noon, the soup will be thick enough to make it extra kick.

lai hong (5)

You can actually choose your ingredient. Of course mine, I would love it to have a good mixture with alot of other spare parts.

lai hong (6)

this is what I mean the soup is pretty sweet and aromatic with bones and meat are being boiled along./

lai hong (7)

 

lai hong (8)

here is my bowl of slice beef noodle that some Louise & Anna order.

lai hong (9)

Their Beef balls is a must order. Springy and a bit solid that good enough to chew. I finish half of it. Hehe~

lai hong (11)

Here is my bowl of beef noodle. A good mixture. .

lai hong (12)

I have always love mine with a good mix. We were there around 11.30 am and the soup is strong and aromatic. You can even taste some spices that they have added in there. Beef Slices are good, done medium then let the hot soup make it cook. For an early weekend morning to have this, its sure satisfying. One of a good bowl of beef noodle soup in KL.

If you are new here for the first time, do give it a try~ Parking there is a big issue. You can consider park at Central Market then walk over.

Sometimes its a tough decision when the question of where to eat pops up. Just at times do not know what to eat and decided to make a round at my neigbourhood area to hunt for food. Then remember that there are 2 huge food court available around the area of Kepong. This round trying out Kepong Food Court.

kepong kopitiam (1)

kepong kopitiam (3)

No difference like any other food court in Taman Megah or SS15, its another huge food court and I am lost again without knowing what to eat and even walk 3 rounds and still cant make up my decisions, find that this Kepong Food Court is not really complete.

kepong kopitiam (4)

 

kepong kopitiam (2)

 Then ended up ordering Pork Burger that sells in food court.

kepong kopitiam (5)

 and by looking at the uncle serve his food out of his stall, certainly capture my attention that sells authentic Taiwanese Food.

kepong kopitiam (6)

Choices are pretty decent as like  Taiwanese food all the main selection are there and decided to settle for this stall too.

kepong kopitiam (7)

Ordered the Sour and Spicy Soup Noodle and turns out to be very good. Its quite sour and the spicy taste will hit you after a while and if gives us the challenge to continue eating. Sprinkle with some chili flakes to make it more spicy. The set back is only the noodle is slightly overcook. Nevertheless still a great bowl of noodle for RM5.

kepong kopitiam (12)

After finishing my noodle and looking at the uncle busy serving this Braised Pork rice, it look and smells good. Then decided to give it a go. Love the braised pork sauce was added in and shredded pork slices are soft and flavourful along with rice is just another perfect combination.

kepong kopitiam (14)

Then I was given complimentary Chicken Feet as the uncle see us eat till so happy on his food. Its soft and love the light herbal taste on it too. I must say that for a Taiwanese Food in Kopitiam and at the price, this is surely a highly recommended stall.

kepong kopitiam (8)

 My friend ordered Pork Noodle which is totally out. Don bother.

kepong kopitiam (9)

and here comes my Pork Burger from Big Boys Burger. Ordered it with extra cheeze and bacon.

kepong kopitiam (10)

kepong kopitiam (11)

No doubht for the pork patty is well prepared, season and quite solid. The taste is good for such a medium size patty that did not overcook with cheeze that just melted on the top that makes it perfect along with light saltiness from bacon. Overall its a nice burger pricing at RM 11.90. Find is slightly overprice but nevertheless a good try  . .

If you do come here, Taiwanese Stall is the most highly recommended and do let the uncle know that not to overcook the noodle.

[update: Jan 2014 uncle and auntie had moved. dont know where they are now]

How many of you often crave for food? I often crave for a few food and Curry Mee is one of it. In Klang Valley/ Selangor area, it is definately very hard to find Penang Curry Mee and one which is the nearest to Penang few years ago is Lorong Seratus Tahun in SS2. After they have converted to HALAL status, I no longer go back to that shop anymore. The different between Penang Version and KL version is Penang soup base is more towards coconut taste and KL version is more towards curry chicken ..

 

Well, the auntie previously did their business at a kopitiam behind KFC and now they have move to Millennium Eighty Six still inside seapark. thanks to Bangsarbabe as I borrow her pics. . :D, the sipek good in food hunting, introduce us this auntie which is from Penang that cook authentic Penang Curry Mee. We used to dine alot and now she move we also follow along.

curry mee (1)

a simple stall that locate inside the shop which is next to the kopitiam coffee making stall.

curry mee (4)

This picture was taken at the old stall in Seapark but I did not retake the new one at the new stall as the most important is the curry mee still the same.

curry mee (5)

They have a few condiments that is available in the stall as it depends on what you order.

curry mee (6)

This is the thing that you must not MISS. A bowl of simple Penang Curry Mee @ RM4.50 for small bowl and RM5 in big bowl. The auntie is really generous on the portion.

curry mee (7)

This simple Penang Curry Mee is the killer that often makes me crave for it. A bowl that comes along with tofu puffs, prawns, cockles, cuttlefish and best of all got pork blood, mine this round I add on with Pork Ball (RM0.80 additional each). The important is the soup base that hint of coconut, a bit clear, sweet that the auntie use alot of prawn heads to cook the soup and with a hint of pandan too. Then the chili that given separately, as I prefer mine to at least add on 1 spoonfull of chili to make it super chili red and spicy.

Anyway, if you do crave for Penang Curry Mee, I rate this by far the best and its a MUST TRY! The auntie also used to serve Koey Teow Soup and Penang Hokkien Mee (prawn Noodle) which is good too, as currently this is her new location, she will bring back her signature soon. Do watch out if you do go . .

___ Updated on 18th Jan 2013

Not only that, my friend introduce me the WEstern food next to the curry mee stall and I must say its a bomb.

2 huge slab of Pork chop that cost only RM10, definately very fresh piece of pork meat being slowly grill on the pan and drench with rosemanrry black pepper sauce is just very satisfying. Another thing to aim for in this coffee shop. – Highly recommended.

It had been quite a while since I last visited this shop that used to be one of my favourite shop to come for ‘Tong Sui’ and some kuih when I used to stay in Loke Yew. Kedai Makanan dan Minuman PMK still maintain one of my favourite place to come by as I usuall come here pretty late around 9’ish whereby most of the stuff sold out but still can get those what I want.

PMK (1)

Kedai Makanan dan Minuman PMK is located nearby Pudu Plaza where its not hard to find. A simple coffee shop that offer local delicacies that are pretty well known for their Chinese deserts and snacks that can satisfy my crave easily, would say one of the best stall in KL for tong sui.

PMK (2)

PMK (3)

Price in here are very decent . . .

PMK (4)

Its a simple kopitiam seating arrangement. . .

PMK (5)

Some of their signature kuih .. .

PMK (6)

My Ginger soup with Tong Yuen, is one of my favourite. I used to hate ginger soup as time pass by I learn to accept and start to like it. Ginger soup base here is slightly strong and spicy and those who do not prefer the strong taste would end up disliking it. Comes with sesame filling and pair perfectly with the soup base.

PMK (7)

Another one of my favourite is Herbal Egg Tea, that not many places can cook this tong sui very well. One which I often make a take away as its too good to be miss. Mild in taste yet light fragrant on herbal taste make it a good soup to turn down. Comes with an herbal egg too.

PMK (8)

As when I crave for dumplings, here would be an option that price is reasonable yet comes generous ingredient.

PMK (9)

If any of you do pass by here, here is definitely one of the place to drop by for visit especially on their ‘tong sui’. Well, another recommended place by me.

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.

Cheras (1)

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.

Cheras (2)

Price is pretty cheap  . .

Cheras (3)

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 :

Cheras (4)

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.

Cheras (5)

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.

Cheras (8)

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.

Cheras (10)

And there is only 1 bus stop here.

Cheras (11)

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.

Cheras (13)

Dad making the dough . .  Mom frying on it and son taking orders and take away. Friendly uncle. . .

Cheras (12)

One of my friends favourite is the Prawn Fritters that sells here. as in the picture you can see its on the far right.

Cheras (14)

Cheras (15)

Cheras (16)

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.
