Pitt Street Koay Teow Th'ng 椰腳粿條湯

Pitt Street Koay Teow Th’ng – the original Koay Teow Th’ng from Hai Oan coffee shop that located in Burmah Road.

What’s attractive about this Koay Teow Th’ng is their fish ball and the pork patty and not to forget the chili that they make. Though it’s only chili padi, garlic and soya sauce, am sure they added either lemon juice or lime juice, otherwise, how could it be so tantalizing?

I remember CK blogged about them moving to a new place, thank god it was just a few doors away. As such, it would not be too difficult to locate them, after all, this is the place where you could see lots of tourists walking around with their camera, umbrella, drinking bottle and of course with a tour guide.

I’ve never try out this main branch before, and I always like to eat their KTT because of the fish balls is springy and the pork patties. It’ll good if you could add their specially made chili too. It is just absolutely delicious!!

This stall was also awarded for a special award in year 2002. Well, I supposed this couldn’t be wrong, right? (椰腳粿條湯 - 曾榮獲2002年皇牌小吃)

Fat Mum Seafood House 肥媽海鮮煮炒

Good food is every where in town, you just need to have the patient and time to check it out.

I came across this place when I had my breakfast next door, I was wondering would it be something nice down there and reasonable too?

Well, true enough my family had great time down there, yes down here in Fat Mum Seafood House (肥媽海鮮煮炒). It was our first time, and we didn’t know what best down there, the Tau Keh Soh / Si Tau Poh / 老闆娘 was very friendly, cheerful and helpful, she took our order and kept telling us what’s their signature dishes down there and also gave us some special discount if the drinks is not nice.

When we were wondering what to have, she was telling us they have Sambal Petai Udang, and that got my mom’s attention, straight way Fat Mum said, let’s have a small plate to try out their way of cooking petai. It wasn’t that bad smell, and the prawns are fresh and springy.

Then mom wants something like Marmite Chicken, I believe they deep fried the marinated chicken and glazed with Marmite and Honey. It was crispy outside and juicy inside.

Next was the Asam Steamed Fish which Fat Mum insists we should try. True enough it was the best dish for the night. It wasn’t sour and it was just nice for everyone of us.

A plate of vegetable which no one would want to miss it. Kai Lan with other ingredients like carrots, mushrooms and meat.

When my brother wants a plate of Foo Yong Egg (Egg Omelet), Fat Mum didn’t want to take that order, she was saying why don’t we give a try on their Mongolia Tofu, if ever we don’t like that, that plate of dish will be on the house. Thank God, at least it satisfied my brother. [LOL]

Oh yes, Fat Mum also recommended their 3 in 1 to us. That honestly puzzled each of everyone of us, before we could answer her we didn’t want to have 3 in 1 coffee, she said that’s something that we should try. Again,… here’s a trademark, if it’s not nice, this glass of 3 in 1 will be on the house. 3 in 1 is actually Cucumber, Green Apple and Sour Plum (酸梅), she said it’s cooling especially we are being attacked by this heat wave.

And 2 bottles of Carlsberg for the men.

Good food, good drinks, and a friendly Tau Keh Soh, isn’t that making our dinner a great one?

113 台牛后 Lebuh Melayu Koay Teow Th'ng

The advantage of reading food blog is to look for food when you’re running out of idea what to have for breakfast, or where to go for breakfast.

I actually read about Food Paradise blogging about this place and told hubby about it. So, we drove all the way to cross the bridge just to have a bowl of this Koay Teow Th’ng.

Well, isn’t that spontaneous per say, I was dragged to get up early for hiking instead. While I was still on sleeping mode, I was dreaming for a steaming hot bowl of soup.

Anyway, early in the morning it was many customers in the shop, but I could still see a few of its regular customers patronizing the stall… what makes me so sure they are regular? Well, from the way they talk to the boss, the way the boss react on their request that could tell it all.

For a first timer like me, we didn’t have anything extra but something ordinary.

The duck meat, fish ball, fish cake, and even the duck liver were nicely blended with the soup and the noodles.

In fact, they have duck intestine, porridge (鴨粥) and also Koay Chiap (粿汁) of which I have not try out personal, and I bet it would be good.

Oh, I didn’t mention how clean and hygiene is the place, didn’t I? It’s clean and the service was absolutely satisfying. At least the person that came and asked us for our order was friendly.

It isn’t a bad idea to get up early for this bowl of nice Duck Meat Koay Teow Th’ng.

Perut Rumah Nyonya Cuisine

A century old heritage has turned into a nice Nyonya Cuisine Restaurant that established for a year plus which located along Jalan Kelawai awaits for all the Nyonya food lovers to try out their food.

When CK published her post on Perut Rumah, I was basically driving around to look for the building. It’s something that is not noticeable if you do not pay attention, well, it’s a bright orange heritage house that on your left if you are coming down from Pangkor Road.

One of the weekends, we both have nothing to do, so spontaneously we hop into this place. When we both first stepped in, we have that ‘WOW’ kind of feeling. It’s beautifully decorated, it’s full of cultural colours, and it’s pleasant to dine in a place like this. Furthermore it could definitely help to boost your appetite.

We were greeted by an elderly man and also the service was attentive, within few minutes our food was served.

Let’s allow the food that speaks for me down here…

A plate of Sambal Petai (RM14), this plate is surely our favourite, though it stinks but it’s definitely one of the best food that doctor would recommend.

A bowl of Tau Eu Bak with 2 Hard Boil Eggs (RM14) apparently is a famous dish for all to order when comes to Nyonya food. Don’t you agree?

A Asam Pedas Stingray (RM15), it taste sour and spicy and it has a little bit of sweetness from the pineapple that cooked together with the paste.

2 cups of home made hot barley (RM6) that give us a soothing throat after such a delighted meal in this hot weather.

And I am pleased to share some of the interior deco as well as the external deco to you... it was pleasant.

Everyday Supreme Restaurant 天天大酒樓 on Mother's Day

When comes to May, there’s 1 important day for all the mothers, and that’s Mother’s Day.

We had celebrated Mother’s day with my in law last Sunday, and the gathering was organized by my youngest sister-in-law. 6 dishes and 1 dessert, most of the food ordered can be consumed by kiddos and old folks.

Since in law’s family is huge and with all the sons and daughter are back, we need about 2 tables to accommodate the members, thus food order got to be considerate in terms of it has to be able to consume by the elderly and the young ones.

First dish was served was the Butter Baked Code Fish. The butter that covered the fish are thick and fragrant. It does taste like cheese to me, it didn’t over cooked but yet you could still taste the fish’s freshness.

Followed by Nutmeg Chicken. We believe they deep fried the marinated chicken and stir fried with nutmeg and honey.

Vegetable is a must for many of us, due to fiber intake. Since we have kiddos around, we have vegetables with chicken stock.

The signature bean curd… Steamed Bean Curd with Chicken Dice. The bean curd is as smooth as Tau Hua. You just can’t resist it.

Honey Glaze Ribs, this is absolutely my new favourite. It was fantastic.

Steamed Cod Fish… simple and delicious. Kiddo can have 2 bowls of rice because of this.

Last…. The dessert, which is Soya Bean with White Fungus and Ginko. Bottom line this is good for the ladies’ skin.

Total damage for 2 tables is about RM638 plus. For other review can check out from here.
