Parking Space

Browsing

Since its nearby my office, SS2 area is one of the frequent area that I often drop by for lunch especially Chow Yang area as I do not want to be stuck or hassle in finding carpark. Chow Yang area is easy easy to locate a parking space and walk to my favourite dining area just a few doors away not like the main area of SS2 you have to park far and walk to another side of your dining place. Restaurant Ho Ho Sek.

[updated 27/10/2015] – the Kopitiam had closed down – swap operator.

Chow Yang (1)

Well, this place caught my attention alot of times whenever I dine here, as this newly rebuild kopitiam to Restaurant Ho Ho Sek, I rate this place is a highclass kopitiam. It provides indoor dining with air condition and of course when it comes with air condition means you have to pay a bit more expensive drinks in this shop. One is because of the interior or the shop and seconds its along with air condition.

Chow Yang (3)

The hawker area are clean and all are park in order . .

Chow Yang (2)

Then my friend introduce me to this stall which is operate by her family members. Got a full time job then forgo to start a business in hawker which is kinda interesting. Their food is pretty unique in the market  . ..

Chow Yang (8)

Pork Ribs noodle’s is their signature and they only sell that in the stall.

There are 2 version of the noodle, either spicy or non spicy. For the non spicy, you can taste the aromatic soy mix with their special ingredient sauce that make it a bit sweeet in taste and my colleague love the one non spicy.

Chow Yang (9)

As I love my food spicy, I would definately recommend their Spicy Pork Ribs Noodle that for first few bites, you might not find the spiciness of it. As you eat more, you will find it will numb your tongue as it goes when the spiciness kicks in. Pork ribs were well braise till its quite soft and the taste of the gravy just soak it in. One of the set back that you cannot expect so much is their noodle, that it hardly will soak any flavour in as the texture is similiar to pan mee but their homemade version is more smooth.

This would be the third time I have dine here along with this stall and if you do come here, this is one of the recommended food. RM 6.50

When we walk around the place, my colleague saw this Siew Yuk is quite tempting, so we order a small plate to test it out. Turns out to be dry and it is not so crisp on the edge as I love it with a crack sound while biting. The only best is the chili sauce.

Chow Yang (4)

Next order Fried Koey Teow to share as observe in the coffee shop got alot people order it. When it was serve smells good and the texture and colour looks nice. The set back is it was not fried properly that I even ate a bite filled with chili. If the uncle fried a bit longer with ‘wok hei’ then it would be a perfect one. RM 6 comes with 2 big prawns.

Chow Yang (6)

Popiah taste not bad as it is a bit moist at the bottom and the prawn shrimp paste spread along bring up the taste.

Chow Yang (7)

This chee cheong fun version is something similiar I had in Ipoh and it is much better compare to this one.

Overall, not being biased I still love my bowl of Pork Ribs Noodle – Recommended as I know pork is pretty expensive and they do not give alot, it is understandable in those terms. The food that I try are pretty average  . .  Maybe will suits your taste bud as you can try it out. .

One of the places that Ken wanted to bring me here that not too far from our house is this Restaurant Koon Kee Wan Tan Mee. Many times that I did FFK (in a term of cantonese) and till finally I have decided to tag along this round. It is this wan tan mee stall that only sell wan tan mee in this particular restaurant over the morning till lunch.

Koon Kee (1)

He brought me here on weekend with one of the reason that its limited parking space available around the area and weekend timing is much better. If you do come here on weekdays, you will be like police patrol cars, touring around to get one fine parking spot!

Koon Kee (2)

A simple kopitiam that sell only Wan Tan Mee which is very famous that made its mark to many people that had live near and far to come hunt for this item.

Koon Kee (3)

One of the reason that Ken loves to come here often is because of the quality noodle that they serve and I find it pretty true to. Home made egg noodle (Wan Tan Mee) cost about RM 4.50 if not mistaken. You can choose to have Char Siew version or poach chicken and serve along with a small bowl of wan tan.

Koon Kee (4)

The noodle is just perfect that did not over cook, springy mix with sesame oil and soy sauce with a few slices of char siew top on it is just something perfect to kick start on my beautiful Sunday.

If you are looking for some nice Wan Tan Mee, I think you can opt for this one too . .

One of the places that I often heard alot which is this Andes BYO Pork Burger that located in Aman Suria, and finally, me and my friend decided to pay a visit as actually we were on the way back from Penang and since its on the way then just drop by. There are alot of bloggers are talking about this place and makes me wonder how good is the pork burger actually.

Well, its not so hard to find it actually which its located the same row as Betty’s Midwest Kitchen/ Kayu Nasi Kandar as its on the other side of it only.

Andes (1)

Ample of parking space you can find around the area, as it is a bit more quiet on this side. Therefore you do not have to worry that much even if it rains, that its just a few steps away from the nearest shop lot.

Andes (2)

On Sunday night, this place is a bit quiet as there are a few tables occupied.

Andes (3)

Love the setting of the outlet as its a bit more towards old English interior with red brick wall, old wooden tables and chairs.

Andes (4)

Food price in Andes BYO Pork Burger seems to be very reasonable and I am so keen on their pork range available.

Andes (5)

So what we order is this Porky Pork Grill @ RM 17.90. Looks like it had been perfectly grill with their own marinated sauce and turns out to be juicy and taste perfectly good. My friend is enjoying every bite of his pork. By dipping with the gravy along is very individual preference, either you find it spoil the taste or makes it better. For me, I prefer just to dine it original . .:)

Andes (6)

Aussie Bacon Burger Wrap @ RM15.90 is their signature pork burger and when I was serve in front of me, I am a bit surprise to see the thick and round the patty is is being serve. Smells good as their signature burger being serve along with bacon, coleslaw and fries.

Andes (7)

The patty is good, that able to maintain its juiciness of it and after cutting it, I can just see the cheeze oozing out from the patty. Indeed it was home made by the size and well mince that I get to enjoy mouthful bites from it and the problem for me is a bit hard to grab hold and need to open my mouth to the widest to get full bite of it. 😀

Pretty good for a pork burger being serve in this area, to make another visit back to this place, I would not hesitate as the price are very reasonable. One of the set back that I read from other bloggers that the QC in here are not consistent. Thank god that I had this meal in pretty good taste!

If you are hunting for Pork Dishes around PJ area, certainly would be one of the shop to look out for.

I have work around PJ for quite a while and it excites me during lunch time that I have seen many bloggers blog nice food around this area. It was something that I have discover recently as I have been craving for nice Koay Teow Th’ng or Koay Teow Noodle soup and asked my friend, he said. . You siau ah, one of the best Koay Teow Noodle Soup one just located opposite your office la which is at Section 17, walk also can reach. I am a bit stun when he answer me that.Restaurant Chang Jiang White Coffee offer a Penang version of Koay Teow Soup.

koey teow thing (1)

Then Ken (Foodpoi.com) with his good effort, he purposely drive all the way from Kota Damansara to bring me opposite to eat. kekek~ Its a small little stall that operate below the low cost flat and one of the BIG setback is the parking. Very limited parking space and some idiot drivers will double park infront of the shop to make it worst.

koey teow thing (2)

According to my friend, normally you have to wait for an hour to wait for it as its one of the famous one. Best to head to this stall before 12.30pm to enjoy the

koey teow thing (3)

This is where you place your order with what kind of noodle you want.

koey teow thing (4)

Lunch time its usually filled with office crowd. Its a bit warm here so you  might be just sweating away.

koey teow thing (5)

If you are a coffee lover, just do not miss their cofffee, strong and thick as to my liking. I had 2 glass and the ffect on me was dead sleepy after that. – Highly Recommended!

koey teow thing (6)

Here is my bowl of Koay Teow Soup Noodle

koey teow thing (7)

I always prefer mine in Koay Teow + Noodle for this and the koay teow is smooth and silky. Soup base is sweet that know they have make their efford in boiling it with other ingredients to make it there, add on with fried garlic. For add on’s they add on chicken for me which is also one of their signature as you can order the whole plate by yourself. as we reach there late, it was already sold out. Portion is pretty big for a bowl of RM5

I have dine here couple of times after that only just blogged about it. hehe

If you are looking for Penang Version Koay Teow Soup, definately this is one of the recommended place as its quite near to Penang taste version. Service is quite okay too on their buzy’ness level.

Last round when I back to Penang for Chinese New Year, a few days before the festive season, woke up early and went to one of the busiest market at housing area which is the Ayer Itam Market. The market had been here from many decades ago that start to originate people that stay up in the hill brings down fresh vegetable to sell. From time to time the market had develop till as what it is today.

During festive season, this market is super packed with people to do their last minute shopping and it is advisable to park your car a bit far as very limited parking space available, with its narrow street just enough for 2 cars to passby.

Ti Kuih is one of the item that must buy during Chinese New Year. After a short stroll, we head to a nearby kopitiam for breakfast.

Kedai Kopi Kapin is one a famous kopitiam around the neighbourhood  . . . One of the hawker stalls to look after is the Hokkien Mee (Prawn Mee) which have people lining up for it.

As we order too many food for 3 of us then we just order only just Wan Tan to try out and the skin is very soft just that the sesame oil is abit strong.

 Penang Curry mee is always one of my favourite, cuz they have ‘Pig Blood’ and the chili is their own homemade style that makes every one is different in taste.  RM3

 ‘Pork Noodle’ as I always prefer my version in Koey Teow with Mee and this are cook instant. The soup taste is okay only, as I prefer my soup base to be a bit thick in flavour and a bit more of pork lard. RM3

This is the signature of the shop ‘Prawn Mee’ with some of us like to add a bit of ‘Loh’ which is the soup base for ‘Loh Mee’ that makes it a kind of Prawn Mee (ying yong style) which is most of the people are ordering. The loh is a bit thick and the prawn mee soup base is sweet, that ‘pai kuat’ taste is in there, shows that used alot of pork bone. RM 2.80

Then we walk to a street next to it and I found something more interesting which is this whole street sell Curry Mee with at least around 3-4 stalls selling the same thing. Ken told me that every stall have their own style of chili and soup base which makes them have their very own customer base.

 We sit to this stall and I was very curious, this ‘Chee Cheong Fun’ stall is very busy and non stop customer coming in and I decided to give it a try. The chee cheong fun is very good, very soft ‘fun’ that mix with thick texture of shirmp paste ‘Heh Kor’ and their very own homemade chili and fried onions. RM1.50 

 Then I stroll around among other stalls and this stall which is family operated and this 2 ah ma working so hard preparing in a very traditional by using charcoal, and people keep pouring in to buy. I also give it a try.

 As what I said, every stall is packed and have their own style, and this ah ma different is the squid and the sauce of it.

 Mild sweet soup base add with their own homemade chili with squid makes this bowl of curry mee quite unique in taste. A bit spicy yet sweet and I quite like the soup base. Bought a packet for my parents and they don like it. I guess it depends on individual taste. A good try . . . 

This is located along the entrace of a Chinese School.

All of us we know that when we crave for Bak Kut Teh, the first location that pop into our mind is Klang or some where in Kuala Lumpur, never did it ever cross my mind that a new township that build by SP Setia at Shah Alam which is the new upcoming area that had attracted some restaurant to be operated around the area. Fang Xiang Bak Kut Teh

Restaurant Fang Xiang Bak Kut Teh is one of the new restaurant that had been operate in the area for just less than 2 weeks yet had attracted quite a number of crowd to the place, one great thing at this restaurant is that they operate long hours from early morning till night. The place is fairly easy to be sighted as you travel along NKVE highway towards Klang and will see Tesco Setia Alam and with one of the big sign board, that would be the restaurant.

fang xiang (1)

With a cartoon girl on the signage, there is a reason behind it and there are ample of parking space.

fang xiang (2)

As the restaurant is still new, future expension is under consideration as currently the whole restaurant, smoking is allow.

fang xiang (3)

With many parts of pork to choose from, and they sure do have one of their signature pork is one part that must order!

fang xiang (4)

This is our order, for da day . .. They served by bowl and limited soups is available as the owner had cook more than 100 times to get it right and also by trail and error, most important is the customer feedback given to them that had made her own style of bak kut teh out. The soup served here is very mild in taste, not too watery.

fang xiang (6)

As some of the customer loves ‘Tau Pok’ and for this restaurant, they are giving it complimentary.

fang xiang (10)

Yau Mak veggie with fried garlic.

fang xiang (7)

Go Hui meat which lies in between spine bones and ribs. The meat in this part is soft with fork poking through it easily split out that is sitted by the side of the bone.

fang xiang (8)

The pork belly meat (Sam Chan Bak) lives up to my expecation that cook till soft and thin layer of fats at the top of the meat.

fang xiang (9)

As I mention one of their signature dish, which is the back part of the pig as mention by the owner, she said that there are only 4 pieces of it at each pig and not many places sell this part. The best part of this is the skin fats with a thin layer at the top, as this part is easily obtain by the owner is because the dad is a butcher and always reserved the best part of pork for the restaurant. Only limited pieces are available.

This is Yvonne the owner cum chef for the restaurant. You never be so suprise that its just a young chef as usually Bak Kut Teh in our mind is cook by more mature people with their great recepi had been pass down from generation by generation. Most of the people working in the restaurant are mostly family members and most of them are very young. I did ask her why she open the restaurant, she is a big fan of Bak Kut Teh that makes  her own very first restaurant.

Price ranging from RM8-RM20 which is reasonable.
