The pricing consider one of the very reasonable that they are offering with the portion being served. There is usually a queue when you go at, wrong timing. This is the crowd that ta pau, have not include the crowd that are dining in.Those people that ta pau were at least 4 packs and above. Celaka
This round, lets head to the local favourites that was told this stall operate in an ally back in those days, as their business boom up, then now they have gotten a shop right at the corner busy junction. A local favourite that miss by many locals around the area is this little Halal Abang Is Char Koey Teow, which is more towards malay version which is located in Bukit Mertajam, Penang.
It might look very empty, as I was their during dinner hours, which they just started operation, as it heads towards woo hours, the crowd will start pouring in.
In their menu, they have limited choice of food to chose from as this is what they are good at according to my friend, also very reasonably price.
This is what they are famous for, wet version of Char Koey Teow or what I called it Koey Teow Basah as I order a small one, because I just had dinner at another place before heading here. One reason that attracted many people to drop by is their soup base koey teow, taste a bit sweet, salty and a bit thick in flavour, every spoonfull you get to drink with soup that is just perfect. Portion is just right at RM3 for small. You can try their special as filled with more seafood that price at RM5. Pretty good deal.
I have tried before a few Malay version Abang IS Char Koey Teow and definately this stall hit the top at the moment. Its a crowd favourite around the neighborhood, if you do drop by, you can give it a try. . .

I travel to Bandung last month and alot of my friends told me that town is not only famous for factory outlet is also a food paradise. I felt that there is like Penang where Bandung Street Food is also one of a must to do. Most of their hawker on the street are very nice. Simple just dip into one of the road side hawker then get the taste of it. Our first stop for the day while we were shopping at Dago area, we try out Durian Ice Cream which cost RM3.50 for a cup with durian meat in there.
A few scoop of ice cream. . .
and add on their local brand Indomilk Susu Kental Manis Cokelat and carnation on the topings.
The ice-cream is soft and it taste like the one I had when I was a kid, not too sweet and the durian meat flavour was not strong enough as I like. . .Overall its quite a good catch for RM3.50. . . You can just find it any where along most of the streets . ..
As we walk further up nearby Citibank there are a few Warong located next to the bank and we were already very hungry as walk n shop the whole morning. . . try out de Robi Batagor with Kuah Kering. . .
Indo version of fried wanton and fried taufu mix along with peanut sauce and sweet sauce. Freshly fried dip with the sauce is not bad lah` ID 6500 . ..
Usually in Indonesia, Baso is one of the food that I would not miss. I just love their chili that added into the soup.
The ingredient steam first then added their very own style of soup.
This is Baso Soup with Bee Hoon and Mee added. Added with lots of their chili to make the whole bowl spicy in taste. Just that this soup sold by this guy did not meet my expecatation.
Then head to next area while we were shopping at House of Mode, Setiabudi area. . We try out ES Campur Special that added many ingredient inside like coconut, sago jelly, cincau, lychee and some others. To me, if it is less sweet abit then it would be perfect.
Next to House of Mode, Batagor Riri is one of the stall that highly recommended by a few blogger from Indonesia. Batagor means (Fried Taufu) which is originate from Bandung and it had been so famous till spread to many places in Bandung.
As the lady saw me doing some photoshoot, the offer let me take pic of the taufu before fried.
This is after freshly fried and you must eat it while it is hot. Fried Taufu and Siew Mai squeeze with lime and a bit add on with the stall special chili, is just nice, crispy on the edge and the peanut sauce is thick and nice.
Then when we saw a Warung filled with many people which is the Mie Ayam Pangsit Special.
Its is filled with half bowl of soup and chili sauce with another type of local special sauce to add in the kick of it and after mix it till all the chili coated onto the mee as what others do. . .The noodle is a bit springy and for a local taste like that I would say it taste pretty good for just ID 5000.
Next to it Den Han Klappertaart is another one of a famous brand in Bandung.
A few flavour is available.
Use bread to baked with huge slices of coconut yet have to eat it warm as if eating custard.
This street snacks I had it at Setiabudi (next to House of Mode) . . .
Part 2 of street food is coming soon .. .
One place that we have been talking for months that Ken keep mentioning how good this place was till I tak boleh tahan and request to go but for the last round we head here, it was half way through as it was bloody jam after the Shah Alam Klang Toll. Till few weeks ago, I mention again and directly Ken agree and we drive all the way to Klang just to hunt for one particular restaurant that served Fried Chicken, Ayem Percik and Yao Yao Ping. Kedai Makanan & Minuman Yao Yao Ping
Based on the crowd and people, this place is famous to its neighbourhood and during public holiday draws crowd as far from other states, as I were here on weekend, I find that this place is more like a family gathering as it draws those family with their young children. As I understoond, kids love Friend Chicken, so am I when I was a kid escially I would just go for only Drumstick.
It was an old kopitam that located some where in Klang Valley as Ken knows the way as he is a regular customer there.
One thing to start off with is that, I must order this Yao Yao Ping and Mango flavour @ RM1.50-RM2 is the best among all. Ken and Andrew directly order 2 glass each and me, since they order that, I decided to try out other flavour.
Ayam Percik being grilled and served hot top on with their own special gravy.
Besides their speciality, we get to choose an option of Ham, Hotdog, Crab – China Hamburger and popiah too.
Do not expect the place to be air condition but consider the style of it, it is considered clean already.
Then I start off with my China Burger – Ham that taste much better than the ones available in pasar malam, which is not that oily yet the big slice of ham is there.
Then here comes their signature in the house, ‘Fried Chicken’ @ RM2-RM3.50 as I start off mine with two drumstick, then Ken and Andrew asked me seriously! “Are you sure that two is enough for you?” I said might be, then they said don siau la..where got enough. . . .
This is the reason why they ask me a serious question as this is their portion. After finish my two drumstick, I ended up ordering another 4 more pieces which is two thigh and two wings. I would say, this is one of the best fried chicken that I have tasted so far with the skin is crips, hot, aroma with those kind taste that the meat in it is soft and juicy. Dip with the available normal chili sauce is good enough!
This is my Yao Yao Ping as I mixed it with two flavour, ‘Red Bean and Asam Boi’ both taste good but under this hot weather and after I ate those fried stuff, Asam Boi stands out more as it is more refreshing and I love the sourness of it.
Then there is one kid ordered this, all mix. I just wonder how it taste.
For this kind of environment with the food quality like that total damage for my share around RM11 with drinks and Chicken is quite good, sure I am a satisfied customer. If you ever do food hunting in Klang, just do not miss this great Friend Chicken and Yao Yao ping, just be here early before 1pm to get the Mango, as I finish and want to ta pau the Mango Flavour, its all sold out and the rest are available. Next great taste is Watermelon and Asam Boi. A Recommended place by me.

I still remember when I was a kid, I used to follow my mom to wet market in the morning, and after that will head for breakfast with lots of hawker stall to choose from, not until that I have been reading about Imbi market about variety of food there with one of famous stall that stands out among the rest is this very traditional, Hainan stall which serve half boil egg, roti khawin, Signature KOPI that make the whole market so merry. Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea
It was not until last Sunday, woke up early and my friend drag me to this market after she knows I have been talking about it for quite some time. First time being here and we reach there around 11am and most of the food stalls are like ready to pack up, as they usually operate till 12pm.
After walking in, the first stall surely caught my attention, as I do not know what food it is and a few uncle are buying it, seeing it with a few ingredient to mix and match.
Most of them are made from bean curd, bean curd skin . . . .
and specially bean curd roll till a stick. The uncle sell it a mix and match for small RM3 then if you want bigger portion its RM4 and RM5. He do sell it seperately.
My mix and match which is everything is available, then add in chili sauce and the best is mustard sauce!
I just love the taste of it with the bean curd is soft and juicy after soaking in the soup base to get the aroma, the pork taste so soft and chewy dipping with mustard and chili taste good as I find the taste is unique but I am loving it. Recommended if you are adventurous.
Then I walk to the other end, saw this auntie sitting there and frying ‘Yau Char Kway’ or ‘You Tiao’ that looks so tempting that just fried hot from the wok. Then the auntie so funny, as she saw me holding a camera and ask her husband faster act a ‘posey la’ (make a pose) and the uncle so shy and said don wan la, yet the auntie asking him a few times.
Deep fried ‘You Tiao’ that just came out from the wok, with outer layer so crispy and soft in the inside, if I were given a glass of warm soya bean would be just perfect. RM0.70 each.
Besides that, most of the stalls that sell Yau Char Kway do sell ‘Ham Chee Peng’ which is another type of Chinese kuih that insert with sweet, salty, red bean paste in it.
