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.

 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.

 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.

I am very sure that many of you or 90% of you out there have dine before in Old Town White Coffee, which I have one in my office area in Jaya One. We often have headache during lunch time and when I suggested Old Town White Coffee Signature for breakfast or lunch most of them reluctant to go along because of the food quality.

When I received an invitation to review on Old Town White coffee food I am very surprise and why do they need to do a review since its pretty well know. Then decided to give it a try to check what is going on.

Old town (1)

Heading to Old Town White Coffee Signature outlet in 1-Utama which, there are only limited outlet and food choices in here are more.

Old town (2)

They event do sell your favorite coffee pack and instant.

Old town (3)

Old town (4)

Menu in here is definately different compare to those normal Old Town White Coffee Outlet and pricing also different which is slightly more expensive.

Old town (5)

Range in here are 20% more . . .

This is one of their latest edition to their new range of food product.

Old town (6)

Ice blended range is very impressive which is totally out of my expectation. Flavors are blended well and not too sweet, surely for a price like that its worth recommending at RM7.90. I love their mint series.

Old town (7)

Garlic Butter Toast @ RM4.60. Sometimes I do take this for breakfast and its pretty much different compare to their normal outlet. Its much stronger in taste and the small of garlic while its serving already tempt us.

Old town (8)

Fried Dumpling @ RM5.90

Old town (14)

One of my favourite when I was introduce by my colleague during tea time is their  Curry Puff @ RM4.90 as she bought as many as 20 pieces to treat all of us. Its slightly pricey of course but when you have the nearest outlet then this is one of the obtion. Ingredient in there is pretty generous.

Old town (10)

This is the first time I see they do have Tomyam Rice in the menu and decided to try it out. Smells good and taste nice, not to strong of tomyum spices which is just nice and rice is fried with wok hei. @ RM 11.90

Old town (11)

Their signature item which is Supreme Rendang Chicken Nasi Lemak @ RM13.50

Old town (12)

Supreme Javanese Mee is pretty good too. Gravy is thick enough and well presented, surely I wont mind to order [email protected] RM9.50

Old town (13)

oh, this is the star dish of the night that caught many of our atttention, even with some say you serious wanna order this. I say why not give it a try. Came out every one finish this dish within seconds. For a Halal Fried Kuey Teow in Egg Gravy/”Wat Tan Hor” @ RM10.90 it taste marvelous. Fill with ‘wok hei’ with gravy just thick enough to pair along with the koey teow. Surely one of the best this in the whole menu and I did came back dine again on this dish after our review. It still taste good in this 1-U outlet. (others I have no idea) – highly recommended~

Old town (16)

Strawberry Snow Ice @ RM6.90

Old town (18)

Peanut Snow Ice @ RM6.90

Old town (17)

Mango Snow Ice @ RM6.90

 With their new desert on the menu not long ago, its a great addtion and among 3 flavours I like Peanut and Mango. Soft shave ice, just nice for our hot weather (opps not, rainy season)

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.

Just right before I went back to Penang for my friends wedding 2 weeks ago, few days before that I received an email from my ex-colleague that some one mention in a blog that a blogger mention Pulau Aman served nice fresh Prawn Mee aka Mee Udang in Malay, then as I am excited and decided to go explore this round, and to double confirm I went Google up about this place, surprisingly quite a number of bloggers been before since as early as 2008. Then I told him I am going during Raya Break, then he said, u sot liau..Raya who opening for you including Ramadan? I was like super disappointed but yet lucky to go back early and just ngam ngam a day before bulan puasa start.

In adventurous mode, so went back to Penang can call my best friend and propose this and timing is so ngam that they also do plan to go to this island which is just perfect. Woke up early on Sunday morning look at Google Map that to travel there is very straight forward. Just head towards KL bound highway then exit at BATU KAWAN exit, –> find Batu Kawan Stadium then just head alllllll the way straight only till and turn left at a junction. It is just about 30-45 minutes from Penang island.

 

Pulau Aman (1)

 Then you will reach this place with a huge carpark and we are amaze with one thing.

Pulau Aman (2)

Hidden deep inside here and a beautiful future mini port that just build up which I believe going to host some cafes or restaurant that over look the sea and Penang Bridge, shows that there are quite alot of crowds coming here.

Pulau Aman (3)

You can just park your car anywhere as you can find a spot and you will be charge RM5 which certainly alot more expensive compare to the ones in Penang if you consider this kind of place. . I guess its tourist attraction then.

Pulau Aman (4)

Then you will see this mini jetty that will take us to the opposite island which is known as Pulau Aman.

Pulau Aman (5)

This is the list of schedule and rates to take us over the other island as according to the boatman or the ‘penjaga’ there are no specific pick up or departure time. Just come to this jetty and just wait for the boat as they charge RM6 for 2 ways which is quite reasonable.

Note: the boat start as early as 8am (depends on luck as official start around 9am then last boat depart from the island back to the jetty is 5.30pm). IF you cant get back there are damm less accommodation and I would just wish you good luck in getting back.

Pulau Aman (6)

 my 2 best friend which is the 2 siau poh’s . .Collen and Nancy and cam whore abit while waiting for our boat ride.

Pulau Aman (7)

 Yayyy… finally our small mini wooden boat had is coming with the slow sound of engine ‘tutt ttuttt tutttt tutttttt’

 

Pulau Aman (8)

This is how small the boat is and maximum I think can transport around 25 pax.

Pulau Aman (9)

This is how small and low the boat is and I think I stretch my hand out I can touch the sea water already.

Pulau Aman (10)

 This is what I mean small boat and quite a lot people purposely travel there for fishing.

Pulau Aman (11)

 about 10 minutes slow boat ride we finally approaching Pulau Aman. Pulau Aman which is actually a small fishing village.

Pulau Aman (12)

Pulau Aman (13)

Pulau Aman (14)

Pulau Aman (15)

 

Pulau Aman (16)

 We are surprise to see here got a map to tell us where we are and what do they have, and best of all, we do not know where the restaurant is located. The island seems small in this map and if to walk, will take quite a while. Then something struck our mind, just follow where everyone is going, you wont be wrong. Either ended up in 2 places, fishing area or the restaurant.

Pulau Aman (17)

 this is what they have in the island for tourist attraction . . at this junction we took a turn on LEFT where everyone is walking.

Pulau Aman (18)

 they have road names tooo!

Pulau Aman (19)

See, I told you wont be wrong as its just a few steps a way from the Pulau Aman Jetty that you turn left at the T-junction then you will reach this RESTAURANT TERAPUNG PULAU AMAN.

Pulau Aman (20)

As I mention here is a fishing village and according to a few blogger you can grab mantis prawn and crab at a cheap rate. SO you choose what are the seafood you want then you bring the pale to the restaurant and let them know that you want them to help you cook.

Pulau Aman (21)

For being a virgin in this area, we do not know the rate of it and order Mantis Prawn and just 4 pcs cost us RM89 I was like .. kena chop already . . Then ask the other customer around there cuz I saw a big group of teenagers and ask how much is their price and a table sit next to us how much was theirs. Apparently there are 3 rates:

Small medium Size: RM50-RM60 per KG (recommended this size)

Medium Big Size : RM60-RM75 per KG

BIG SIZE : RM 85 above per KG

Please be remember to ASK the price and do not go on Sunday as very less boatman went out to sea to catch fish or anything,

Pulau Aman (22)

As many bloggers mention the signature dish here is Mee Udang, so that must not be miss and we order the rest of it. What is the different between Biasa (Normal) and special, as the difference is less prawns and more prawns. So I would advice just try on their BIASA can already.

Pulau Aman (23)

It was just 10.30am in the morning and its nearly full already.

Pulau Aman (24)

Here comes our order which is the signature dish of the restaurant known as Mee Udang / Prawn Mee malay version. I would say, the soup is not bad as you can taste from the sweetness from the fresh prawns and you just have to squeeze the lime to make it taste a bit sour. RM 6

Pulau Aman (28)

Pulau Aman (25)

Nasi Goreng Udang turns out to be quite good too, that many stores that I have tried in KL on the road side is not as good as this @ RM6

Pulau Aman (26)

Bihun Udang @ RM 6 that this plate certainly beats alot of malay stores out there which is quite fried quite fragrant.

Pulau Aman (27)

 Mee Goreng Udang @ RM 6

Pulau Aman (29)

 Koey Teow Soup Udang @ RM 6

Pulau Aman (30)

 Our Giant mantis prawn and flower crab. The Auntie Charge ADDITONAL RM5 jus to steam on the seafood.

Pulau Aman (31)

Pulau Aman (32)

 This is how giant our mantis prawn is and there is one even longer than Nancy’s face

Pulau Aman (33)

One of the reason not to order big mantis prawn is hard to peel the skin off as its shell is filled with a bit of torn and if you do not handle it properly while cutting you might hurt yourself. So the simple step for me that how I usually do it is

1) Cut the head off

2) cut all the legs

3) cut the side shell

4) just peel from the tail up to the front and just becarefull.

Pulau Aman (34)

After eating we had a short stroll to explore around what to see in this area and reliase that there is a Telaga Emas to see ( Gold Well) then walk for 10 minutes we find that its quite far and decided to turn around and also the area and the area is very Kampung and resides mostly malay here.

Pulau Aman (35)

Then I think there is a chalet here just 4 units. Then we head back to jetty and return. IF you ask me would I return, I would say yes, just for fun . . I will return again another round during Raya Week as the uncle said he will be opening.

What to order – Mee Udang and you can try out the Prawn Mantis small size.

Note: last boat is at 5.30pm
