serving and very affordable.

Ganggangsullae Restaurant@ Desa Sri Hartamas.



Eating Korean's food seems to be the trend in major cities in Malaysia.

Mention Korean's food and kimchi is the word.

Kimchi was voted the 5th Healthiest Food in the World.

It is cabbage- fermented for months and has a spicy, salty and sourish taste.
with lots of vitamins, calcium,iron and lactobacillus to aids in
digestion (no wonder my tummy feel so nice).

Ganggangsullae Restaurant located in the Desa Sri Hartamas's neighborhood 
offers quite an extensive menu.

The restaurant was quiet with not many diners during our visit.

Service was commendable and the food was fullfilling and fresh
with lots of banchan.

Eleven types of banchan.

Pho @ Restoran Sin Loong.


Section 17 in Petaling Jaya is a watering hole for all types of food.

This Pho stall in Restoran Sin Loong is run by a pretty Vietnamese lady.

Opened a week ago and business is good.

Located at a corner double storey shoplot-same row with 7-11.

Pho is usually serve with either beef or chicken but here, the pho is serve
with pork.
I ordered lai fun (rice noodle) and was surprised by the size of it's serving -come 
with two pieces of fat pig's tail, pig's stomach, minced pork, fresh lettuce, 
lots of coriander leaves, beansprouts in a clear, sweet peppery broth and 
garnished with lots of deep fried fragrant shallots.

@Rm6/bowl it is well worth the money.

Wang Kee Bak Kut Teh@Teluk Intan.


This is my second day's breakfast of Bak Kut Teh @Teluk Intan.

The locals just love their BKT in the morning.

Almost packed in this simple and no frills place.

soya sheet and fresh lettuce(average compared toKL/PJ standard)
stir-fried sliced big squid- koong poh style with lots of dried Bombay 
red chillies, onion and spring onion-steamed, Grouper fish's tail (fresh 
and full of flesh) and a plate of beansprouts/lettuce combination.

Pu-er tea to go with the satisfying meal.

Ah Chai Bak Kut Teh@Teluk Intan.


Eating Bak Kut Teh in the early morning is a habit or should I say
is a culture in Teluk Intan.

For breakfast, you will see people and families of all ages downing 
plateful of rice with their BKT.

Located in a ramshackle wooden house along a busy main road 
leading to Sabak Bernam (by now relocated to their new and spanking 
new shophouse in Taman Indah Jaya 2)

We had a piping hot claypot filled with pork ribs, pig's stomach, tofu
puff  with fresh lettuce, a plate of sweet, spicy and tangy Grouper's fish
head and a plate of Choy Sam garnished with deep fried pork lard and shallot.

This BKT is different from KL/PJ or Klang- a bit dark with a diluted soup
rendering the meat to be dark, too !

It was a wholesome for the two of us.
