We drove downtown and was hoping to find a nice place to park
in Madras Lane - a good axis point to all of our makan places,
but alas a foreign filming crew and their vehicles occupied
the whole parking lot.
We then drove around and was lucky to find a parking spot
(Rm4/hour) next to a Chinese Temple at the entrance of Petaling Street.
First place to eat was Lala in rice vermicelli soup and Beef noodle
at Restoran Lai Foong, a good ten minutes walk from one end to the other.
Well worth the walk - lala was delicious, gingery, refreshing and intoxicating to
the taste buds while the beef koay teow noodle was passable - nice
broth and generously sized.
Next we took a slow walk through a side lane to Sang Kee
(a stone throwaway from here), famous for their fried noodles.
We had a two pax fried beef koay teow noodle with ginger slices
and spring onion - good wok hei, gingery and tender beef slices.
Plus a plate of delicious Yin Yong noodle with an eggy gravy for my wife.
After the meal and a hot pot of Puer tea to wash down, the 1 pm afternoon
sun was at it's full fury.
We walked back to the crossroad of bustling Petaling Street to takeaway half
a salted roast duck (Rm28) for dinner from Sze Ngan Chye.
Merchant's Lane for some snacks of Port Klang (seafood fritters
with Thai sauce) and coffee.
A nice, cozy and bright air conditioned place to rest our weary legs, too !
It was like a food marathon to us and get to exercise, too!
