Travel → Makan Makan KL Trip 02072013-05072013

Makan Makan KL Trip
"Cari Makan" is always one of the main highlights when traveling to a city like Kuala Lumpur. It's surely a city with many food cultures, - anyone from any part of the globe can surely live in KL and live in the culture of their food. Here are some of the most awesome places I pigged out during my recent KL Trip >,< *nomnomnom*

1 → SS2, PJ (Petaling Jaya)
A: Selera Malam Hawker Center
Best for dinner or supper - serves various authentic local food - Chinese and Muslim.


(Clockwise from 1st left hand corner)
→ 1st: 六味汤 (or either called Leng Chi Geng莲子羹) → I really quite miss this chinese style dessert, is a kind of my "college-hood" comfort food.
→ 2nd: HongKong style Char Siew Chee Cheong Fun → thin soft skin with tasty char siew, simply delicious, made fresh on the spot when you order it.
→ 3rd: Yong Tou Fu noodles soup → Tasty soup base & awesome Yong Tou Fu with crunchy bean sprouts → perfect match
→ 4th: Grilled Ikan Bakar → Heavenly yummy, smoked taste which totally feels good when you savour it.

B: K.T.Z Foods
(pronounced as Gei Tak Sek, which in Cantonese means "Remember to Eat")
22 Jalan SS2/63,
Petaling Jaya,
Selangor 47300 

After dinner, we just walk over to KTZ Food for our desserts.


We came here mainly for the "Tong Shui" (in Cantonese this means Chinese Sweet Dessert Soup)

(lower left hand corner picture)

→ 1st: Waterchessnut with sweetcorn → sweet but u wont get sick of the sweetness, is very light texture, strong sweet corn taste with "granule" waterchessnut. LOOOOVEE it.
Top right hand corner → Peanut butter soup → super fine grinded peanut paste. Very smooth texture, very mellow peanut flavor. SINFUL!

2 → Sun Fong Bak Kut Teh
37 Medan Imbi, 55100 Kuala Lumpur,
Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Tel: +60 3-2141 4064
Lunch time can be very crowded. But definitely worth the wait.
Top: Ginger Garlic fish head (almost every table ordered this) → waiting time is around 20 minutes. If u like garlic, this is definitely is a must try.
Bottom: Bak Kut The with chili padi is a must ! Pork ribs are soft and the intestines well cleaned and there is no taste nor smell of stinky intestines. The soup very fragrant, spicy and herbal. We drank up all the soup. IS TOO GOOD ! We didn't want to waste any single drop !
3 → Ong Lai (Goh Kee) Restaurant
60A, Jalan Raja Laut, 50350, Kuala Lumpur,
WP Kuala Lumpur, 50350, Malaysia
Tel: +60122599332
 This restaurant is hidden in an alley way off Jalan Raja Laut. The staff are still using the old 1957 "retro" kind of signboards. Is definitely a very traditional kind of Chinese family style zhi char. 
You wash your utensils in hot water before using them. That's so nostalgic right ? They serving crunchy snacks as appetizers. The Birds Nest is ordered separately and is so sweet & comforting.
Now - our main courses are finally here. Although the dishes may not really look tasty - but once you bite into them - they are truly addictive. These dishes are the traditions past down from fore-fathers of these chefs almost 50 years ago.
(Clockwise from top left hand)
1st: Fried Sweet Soy Sauce Prawn (the prawns are big. The taste is sweet)

2nd: Pineapple pork ribs (like normal sweet and sour pork)
3rd: Oyster Omelette (the oysters are huge - they taste really good, there is a general servings of egg and there is almost no starch)
4nd: Razor Clams (personally I think this is my favorite of the night, the spring onions & garlic & also  pork lard really enhance the flavour of this dish - when I accidentally bit into the shell - it was quite crispy & I could even crunch and swallow it.
4 → Pavilion Shopping Mall - Madam Kwan's Café & Cuisine
168 Jalan Bukit Bintang,
Bukit Bintang, 55100
Kuala Lumpur,

We only queued for around 10 mins to get in.  Madam Kwan's is serving a kind of fusion Malaysia food. Signature dishes are Nasi Lemak & Nasi Bojari which can truly reflect Malaysia multi-racial society.
(Top) Nasi Lemak → Normally I hardly eat rice. But this nasi lemak rice is full of aromatic coconut fragrance & also rice is moist and so inviting. Served with curry chicken, sambal, shrimp floss, hard boiled egg & acar (in separate saucer).

(Bottom) Sang Ha Noodles → Sang Ha Mien is a KL invention and people come all over the world to taste KL's Sang Ha Mien. Is a kind of Hong Kong cantonese style noodles in egg sauces with a huge water prawn. Like the eggy taste, and the half crispy & half soggy kind of noodles texture. You can enjoy 2 kind of different texture in same time.
5 → Lot 10 - The Hutong
Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur
This is a food court called Hutong - and is a food gourmet heritage village where the best of KL hawker food is invited to set up a stall. Offering the best of the best KL hawker traditions under one roof - the Hutong is a fast and easy way to taste KL street food without going onto too many places and streets.
Hutong has a super retro 70's or 80's feel. Nearly 30 eateries are waiting for you to try. Hutong - I will be back next time for you !
Penang Duck Egg Fried Kwey Tiao (this one is memorable: heat hot & spicy hot & a little burnt lap cheong chinese sausage - this stall has long queues, so be patient if you are planning on savouring this one.
Thank-you for reading !
