Last round went for costume hunting for company dinner, and we were short of time due to traveling time then for the past round that we went there, we saw this shop that its kinda pack with people and might thought that, hrmm…would be a good place to have lunch since the price is quite cheap. Chong Ko Hakka Noodle

I am not a big fan of hakka food, but then still acceptable as did try a few disappointed restaurant and also good ones.

Chong Ko

‘Original Hakka Noodle’ is something plain that add in with some mince meat and small cubes of ‘chu yau’ which taste something simple and clear. RM 4.30

Chong Ko (4)

‘Curry Chicken Hakka Noodle’ Would be one of my favourite, not so thick curry soup base yet the santan is not so thick too, the flavor of the soup is just nice yet the chicken meat is soft. I just wish that my bowl is added on some pork balls. Yummm~ RM4.80

Chong Ko (5)

‘Pork Ball White Noodle’ with the look, I have underestimate the taste of it. Among all, this would taste the best with its thin noodle compare to the rest which is the thick one. Springy like wan tan mee noodle, with mild taste of the soup and I just love their pork ball, solid chewy type. RM 4.30

That is why we order another bowl of ‘Pork Ball’ RM 3.50

Chong Ko (7)

‘Dumpling’ is nothing to praise on. Just a normal one. RM 4

With the price and the food in this area, I would say its very reasonable and no complain.

I have always been wondering when I pass this shop no matter day or night, its always quite pack. It is that nice were the question I have been asking myself…cuz I have a very bad experience with their Sunway Branch. Till we went to lunch for the Shabu Shabu next door and they said, har..not that kind they prefer then we shifted to this shop and I start to say, weiii..don wan this shop can ah, then most of them agree here then what can I say some more. So just tag along la..

Papa Rich interior design is always kinda exclusive kopitiam concept as when I stayed at my aunts place at Seapark there are 1 Papa Rich also which is quite pack with people and the same with Old Town. Currently I would rate that Old Town main competitor is Papa Rich which had been mushrooming like crazee. Popping up in most of the makan makan area.

In the menu, picture illustration is even better than Old Town but the only thing to test on was their quality of food.

Kopi Si Peng was strong in coffee flavour but disappointing the ais is to much which for a few sips its gone. Left the ice-bone.

Their Kaya and Butter Toast’ which is a bit different because they separate it out and let you spread it over yourself and the best part is the give you the whole slice of butter. The bread was bakar to crispiness on the edge and spread kaya and butter given is just very nice.
Nasi Lemak which the rice is cook with some santan which we prefer and the curry chicken is not that spicy, a bit lemak and the sambal is just nice. Not too spicy but eat along just pull up the taste of the dish.

I love their version of ‘Curry Mee which is very lemak and a bit thick in soup base. A bit spicy yet the soup is boiling hot which suits to my likings and I eat till sweating all over.
‘Prawn Mee look very disappointed but we were surprise by the taste of it. It was serve very oily base and we slowly scoop it off and left a bit which its original version should be and the soup base is very flavourful, taste like they had take the prawn shell to crush and cook with it. Its very sweet prawn shell base aroma and added in the chili making it spicy is just perfect yet its boiling hot.
‘Dry Ipoh Koey Teow which I find it nothing special to talk about as there are better ones.
I have lost the receipt but I can say that the price is slightly more expensive than Old Town but for this branch I definitely do not mind to come here again and its a good place for hang out with friends too.

Just found these pictures back and nearly forgot about it. Wok café seems to be quite famous and been visited by a lot of bloggers, that created my curiosity on their food quality, as it has been given thumbs up. The shop is also famous with mostly Penang Hawker variety which recommended by most of the blogger.

Then so coincidently my friend from pg came down and known the chef of the café as she told me that they are good friend. Of course gladly I am taking them there which is not too hard to locate.



The shop is decorated in a very classic Nyonya style filled with wooden chair and marble tables which I rate it as a kopitiam style.

So our pesta makan starts.
‘Hokkien Char’ Filled with wok hei, yet pour in the sambal given just add in the extra taste. RM8

‘Char Koey Teow’ Me and my friend enjoying as it was fried to perfection, yet filled with si ham, and prawns. I would prefer if it was a bit more spicy. RM8
‘Otak Otak’ It is soft, with a big piece of fish chunk in the middle but I have eaten a better one. RM4
‘Ju Hu Char’ Was a complimentary by the chef to my friend, which we always take it and wrap with the veggie an eat. A bit sweet in taste but I prefer my grandma’s style which is abit salty.
‘Roast Pork with Garlic’ We enjoy this dish, which is quite a bit sweet and salty, yet the fats of the roast pork are just what we prefer. RM16
The ‘Lorbak Set’ ss one of their signature, is quite big in a roll, fried till crispy on the outer layer filled with meat but I prefer other stalls. RM8

‘Kerabu Mango’ Sweet and sour create sensation on our tongue which is one that I would recommend. RM8
‘Sotong KangKung’ It is quite watery after got served, which they did not dry out the kangkung enough, the shrimp paste have to be added in with some of the chili added to bring in the kick. If the shrimp paste is a bit thicker it would be even nicer. RM10

‘Sago gula Melaka’ RM 3.50 Find it too sweet with the floating layer of santan and thick layer of gula Melaka.
‘Mango Cendul’ Unique in the name which I have not tried before, but just not my taste which the mango doesn’t go along with cendul and gula Melaka. RM3.50
I would say that the service was prompt as the dad were seated next to us which is the cashier, and the dad got quite surprise that 3 person of us eating so much, which is me and another 2 girl.

As overall, I don think I know how to enjoy eating Nyonya food but I would surely return for the Penang Hawker food.

Remarks: please go there early to avoid disappointment which is the signature like Hokkien Mee and Curry mee already finish. Be there b4 8.30

Previously my friend did told me about this place, never really got a chance to try out. Just so coincidence that happen to find my friend around Wangsa Maju area and I thought of this place for lunch.

The outlook of the shop which is kinda hard to get spotted cuz its located at the very corner.


Their plain menu with all black.

The set lunch menu to be choose from RM7.90 – RM15.90. After ordering my food, I decided to walk around to see its very own 4 section. What I have in my thought its someting like Quattro club. The restaurant occupied 2 story.

So start off from the top floor, which I came into this room. Interesting~ Definately suits me, but the section was closed, open more for dinner. This is their ‘Winter Room’

Pretty amazed of their interior, with this the sofa area sure very comfy.

The other section of the winter.

Walk out from winter room, this is ‘Autumm’ which is under the sun light. For smokers, I think this area sure will be a nice place to hang out, especially at night. This section also opens at night only.
Followed by the ground floor which lead by the spiral staircase to this ‘Summer’ area. The decoration of fan, lighting and the coconut tree sure makes the environments feels more summer.
This is the ‘Spring’ area which open up for lunch. Have a very nice interior which is pretty comfy and enjoying your lunch.
All set lunch comes with this set of appetizer. From very left is the
Jack fruit desert: not much taste at all, the santan is very diluted. The jack fruit is not sweet.
Cake: hopeless, its a bit hard, the chocolate top more on powdery taste.
Watermelon: okay lah~
The karipap: One word. Taste Geli!
Given a complimentary ‘Green Tea’
This is the extra side order which is ‘Vietnamese Cripsy Prawn Roll with Mango’. Mentioning with mango, the first bite, we could not detect any mango taste only can see a mango slice in there, the prawn is just average and the roll was friend to perfection with sesame seed around it. With the sauce in there, we feel that the taste does not really match as it covered up the mango taste. RM 8
My lunch order ‘Chicken and Cheeze Pasta’. Which noting much to comment on it. Just taste very normal. RM 9.90

The next order is ‘Chinese Style Roasted Chicken Rice’. Quite a large portion with the chicken they are giving consider alot. They sauce taste quite mild, just nice to go along with the chicken, the chicken meat is soft as were given breast part, to eat it with white rice perfectly goes along very well. RM 9.90

The next order is ‘Americian Club Sandwich’ RM14. With the price tag slap on the sandwich, sure it is not a disappointment. It is very nice, the veggie is fresh, the turkey ham is nice, fried egg and some chicken pieces and with the dressing the put on, its a sandwich you would be asking for.

 

Honestly, I would give them second chance for their food, most probably would try to dine at night to see what is the difference but of course I would say that this would be one of the best spot to hang out with friends especially the Winter and Autumm area. Dissapointed on food of that day but impress with the ambiance.
All the price are nett~
