[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.

[Repost on this blog with minor amendments and add ons as old picture was all gone]
I was on my way driving back and oh hell, forgot to ask the number of my friend, where she just came back from Melbourne and was at Ipoh. Totally forgot about that. Then dropping by at this Ipoh town where every one been talking about the Ipoh Nga Choi Kai at Restaurant Onn Kee. Came here for the 3rd time but the other stall did not open so try up this stall. No Choice. Either this or that. So it is this.

ippoh (1)

onn kee (1)

Trying out at restaurant Ong Kee. It was around 6pm and the tables was nearly fully occupied. This shows how good the business are but of course cannot compare with Murni @ SS 2 or Steven’s Corner @ OUG / Jln Genting Klang. They are crazee. Occupied the whole street.

onn kee (2)

onn kee (3)

 Not only that. They are quite well known for their chicken feet too.

ippoh (2)

As some of them order chicken skin with some spare part like chicken gizzard, none of the people on my table eat it besides me. Smooth chicken skin with soy sauce just make it simple and nice to chew.

ippoh (3)

To be in this town and eat chicken rice, their fatty juicy tauge (bean sprout) is not to be miss, and why is their tauge is thick and juicy. Well, I was being told by my friend that they grow in natural mineral water flowing from moutain. That is why the tauge here is fat, juicy and crunchy.

ippoh (4)

One of my favourite in this stall is their pork ball and fish ball. Something nice to chew and dip onto their chicken meat sauce.

ippoh (5)

Find that Onn Kee ‘Ngah Choi Kai’ a.k.a ‘Tauge Ayam’ taste much better than Lou Wong. Simply because of the method that they cook it differently. On my personal opinion i think that the chicken texture here is soft tender and juicy and of course what stood out is their sesame and soy sauce base make them more outstanding. This is because I had lunch on Lou Wong had dinner here. That is how I manage to taste on the difference even though I came here many times.

ippoh (6)

This is the Koay Teow Soup’ that to be eat with the dish. It is either this or rice. Usually all the people that eat here will take Koay Teow but honestly, after you finishing the whole bowl, a little tip. Prepare a bottle of mineral water after that. You will be very thristy with their secret weapon in there. You really need it. That is why with their secret weapon the food will definitely taste nice no matter what. (This was my tip on 2009) 😀

Looking at the way how I blog last time its funny~ kekekeke

This new edit post is a blend of my 2009 writing style and 2012. Spot the difference~ I find that overall, I like Onn Kee more also just realize that I have not blog about Lou Wong before.

I always satisfy my craving for Ramen (Menya Musashi) inside Isetan as this new Japanese Eatery,area EAT PARADISE  was added since Isetan open its door in 1-Utama. I only always walk on the customer service side wing and never did I even bother to walk on the other side, till I read Bangsarbabe’s blog on this restaurant, Tonkatsu by Ma Maison, I was like why did I never walk to that area.

Before you walk into the outlet, they have a huge cabinate located at the near entrance that feature all their food and what you can expect when its been serve. I must say the portion is pretty huge.

This cozy little area hidden in the back corner of Eat Paradise house this Tonkatsu by Ma Maison. Ambiance is cozy and all staff are friendly.

 Open Kitchen Concept. .

tonkatsu (7)

Menu are pretty straight forward as they only serve Tonkatsu series and there are a few types for you to choose from. I am quite impress that they design the menu and order of food like steak. Small portion with about 180-250G of meat(your choice of selection chicken or Pork), or large with 250g and above if not mistaken. All order comes with rice, soup and unlimited refill of cabbage. For rice we get to choose White rice or Multi grain rice for healthy selection.

tonkatsu (8)

Before you dine, we are given a little ball of Oroshi (white reddish) with tamari dressing to eat before the main course. I read on the pamplets, the reason of this is to help refresh the palate and digestive process. Interesting.

tonkatsu (10)

On the table itself, they have special sauce, soy sauce, sesame, sesame dressing.

tonkatsu (11)

tonkatsu (12)

 On the table there is a guide for you to show how should we eat our meal.

tonkatsu (9)

I ordered extra with Potato Salad @ RM 5.90 Something simple, not to heavy mayonnaise and its a perfect balance. Love it~

tonkatsu (13)

 Here comes my Nameton Set @ RM 32.90

tonkatsu (14)

Its a mix with fried prawn, pork loin & Pork fillet. Both the prawn and pork were fried to perfection with crisp on outlayer and pork is still moist and juicy. Prawn is very fresh and pressing lemon brings extra taste in it.

tonkatsu (15)

 Dipping with Mayonnaise is not one of the best option for pork but goes well with my prawn.

tonkatsu (16)

 The miso soup is way too salty for my liking.

tonkatsu (26)

On my set also comes with Tonjiru, noodle is cook well, warm enough to finish the whole thing in seconds.

tonkatsu (17)

 My healthy multi grain rice.

tonkatsu (18)

 On our tray we have a sauce tray that we follow on the instruction for our pork cullet dipping area.

tonkatsu (25)

 with Salt, spicy sauce and original sauce.

tonkatsu (19)

 Jumbo Rosu Katsu Set @ RM 28.90

tonkatsu (20)

 Jumbo means you have your pork loin in bigger cutting.

tonkatsu (21)

and look at how the pork is being fried, will still pale red meat left behind  and with well balance of fats in between makes it yummy!

tonkatsu (22)

 Love the wasabi mustard that pairs uniquely with the tonkatsu.

tonkatsu (23)

as all our set comes with finely cut vegetable and of course dressing for it is to enhance the flavour and I ended up refill twice. The sauce is perfectly good~

tonkatsu (24)

Since our sets doesnt have  Tonkatsu house special miso sauce I ordered it and try. I prefer their house special sauce. @ RM 2.

tonkatsu (27)

It looks pretty decent when it was serve and Anna end up cannot finish her jumbo Rosu which is about 300g of pork.

Tonkatsu is not bad but certainly one of the best I have come across so far. Price I think its slighlty expensive compare to the normal ones. Worth to give it a try.

It has been a long long time since I last came back here and hunt for Chuan Chiew Bak Kut Teh in this area. Used to be one of my hang out spots when I was studying, till I have a few disappointed bak kut teh hunting around my housing area till have to come back here for a decent one.

bkt ss14 (1)

SS14 is already quite well know with a street filled with Bak Kut Teh with many offerings. Every shop have their very own customer base and down till which stall you prefer. As too many years back and little did I remember which one was the best and start off with 2nd outlet on the street which is Chuan Chiew.

bkt ss14 (2)

Early dinner it is as the uncle already busy preparing all his ingredient and cutting it off for waiting customer.

bkt ss14 (3)

To dine Bak Kut Teh of course the ambiance must be in Kopitiam Style ..

bkt ss14 (4)

2 types of soup base, one which is all the ingredient being boil along and another one is to mix it around.

bkt ss14 (5)

After mixture or order, and putting it into claypot, its left on this stove to boil till pippin hot.

bkt ss14 (6)

I quite like the Dry Bak Kut Teh here as its cook along with dry shrimp, taste of squid that make the slight saltiness and thick soy sauce to make it thick, along with chili padi to make it slightly spicy. Just perfect.

bkt ss14 (7)

My pippin hot claypot bak kut teh ..

bkt ss14 (8)

I have a mixture of meat, variety of parts, meat is not too tough yet cook till soft as i prefer. The sad part is always remember to order your needle mushroom to be separated if not the taste of it will over power the taste of the soup. As I order another portion without it. Soup base here is mild not so herbal which most of the locals prefer. Soup definitely can be refillable. I prefer mine to be strong in herbal taste but this is good enough to satisfy.

bkt ss14 (9)

Overall came up to RM61.20 for soup with portion of 4 and dry bak kut teh with 2 portion and 3 of us just whack it.

Chicken rice is a very common food in our country. I am sure every one do have their very particular chicken rice stall including my best friend Ken. I found out that whenever his favourite stall is, its sure sardin pack, well hidden and of course expensive. Well, Restaurant Choon Yien or known as James Chicken Rice is no stranger to many foodie and despite I work nearby I did not know this place is famous for chicken rice till my friend curse me how could I not know. .

Choon Yien (1)

For most of famous place there are only 2 types of service you getting. One is super good or excellent near to first class service or another type is bad. This place certainly fell to errrr .. . Special case. This place is very well known for the boss being very ” lansi ” (snobbish) as he will scold his customer if :

1) they do not order properly

2) no patience you can leave

3) Please wait your turn

4) Please do not double order as I am still young and have good memory. You will make my process line Jam

the list goes on. Most customers will turn off or just walk away when the cook or server is like that but this place is very unique as despite people being scold including you are DATO, Tan Sri or who every is still same treatment yet keep coming as you can see branded cars park nearby.

Choon Yien (2)

Here comes our order, as the rice is fragrant. . .

Choon Yien (3)

Salted, spicy sour vegie soup is well balance with sourness of veggie that do not overpower the dry chili and asam skin cook along to tone it down. Nice~

Choon Yien (4)

I cannot deny that this stall here definately have one of the best char siew with lean meat being cut in between and can you see the balance of fat in between the meat is just as I love it. Caramelize edge with slightly burnt is something that I enjoy alot~ Recommended!

Choon Yien (5)

Chicken meat is pretty decent as what makes it good is the soy sauce base that the chicken had roast then soak along that make it good. Mix with its fragrant rice is just perfect not to miss their own chicken rice chili which is not too spicy and little sourish end is just the right combination.

Chicken rice is cheap in most kopitiam but not this stall. Total damage per head on that day is RM20 and being price at that way, it had shot up to first spot in my list for being the most expensive Chicken Rice stall.

You have to reach here early as stuff here sold out pretty fast. Best advise reach before 12.30pm and Char SIew is very limited per day. Most of them call in to reserve!

Remark: is it best advise not to visit here if you do not have the patience or got scolded by James. That is how he is~

Hmmm, in Puchong certainly there are many places to hunt for food especially in Bandar Puteri. With a stone throw away, you can easily find any eatery shop. The question is how many outlet serve nice food? When I was staying in Puchong few months back, then craving for Bak Kut Teh, asked my brother where is the nicest one and he brought me to this place which is quite deep inside Puchong. Apparently Yap Chuan Bak Kut Teh is one of a famous one around the area . .

yap chuan (1)

Located in 2 rows of busy shop house then reach this bright red orangy sign board on the corner unit.

yap chuan (2)

The tradition of ordering BKT is one pot with soup base and another one dry version.

yap chuan (3)

Right after the BKT being serve in pippin hot, smell of it is pretty good with herbal smell and ingredient is pretty generous by the owner. Trying out to sip the soup turns out to be good, slightly strong in herbal taste as the soup is not too thick, just nice to my liking and ingredient been cook to perfection. A perfect combination with my rice and I drank a lot of the soup.

yap chuan (4)

Just love the spare parts that they put along and look at the intestine, multi layered chewy and good!

yap chuan (5)

Next is the Dry BKT, being cook in thick soy sauce, little sweeten yet the gravy being cook till all well coated onto the pork ended with mild herb taste. I find that both are pretty good and just that the dry version stood out better.

Overall, I would find this BKT shop are pretty good that can go on par with those at Klang and I am sure that this Yap Chuan Bak Kut Teh is one of the best can be found in Puchong. Set back is, its too far for me now as I have move to Segambut. I guess I have to start hunting BKT around these area.
