Lo Sang @ Restoran Petaling Kam Kee Seafood.

Restoran Petaling Kam Kee Seafood is a small family owned restaurant and every year Yee Sang (raw fish salad) is on it's menu one month before the Chinese New Year festival.

This year, we were the second table of diners to taste their San Yee (Snake head fish) Yee Sang (raw fish salad) made with fresh and pickled ingredients without artificial coloring and a yummy sour plum sauce.

We ordered a half portion of Yee Sang @ Rm28/

A good opener to prep up our appetite with it's sweet, sourish flavor and crispy textures before the main dinner.

Happy 2012 to everyone !!!!!

Yee Sang @Rm28/-is refreshingly good, affordable and comparable to some top restaurant.

Location: 9 & 10, Jalan 5/44,
off Jalan Gasing,
Petaling Garden. Petaling Jaya.

Lunch at Ring Road Restaurant.

Ring Road Restaurant is a coffee shop located in a secluded spot right in the heart of the city off Loke Yew road.

For our lunch we tried out the steamed fish head stall and was quite satisfied with the outcome-a wholesome, simple home cooked style experience.

Shoong Yee Tau-steamed Big Head Carp fish with tau cheong, garlic, Bird's Eye chillies and light soy sauce-very fresh with no fishy aftertaste but the chillies were too overpowering-Rm22/
Kwang Si Tofu Puff- well stuffed with fishpaste and Chinese Chives-airy and puffy-Rm4/
Steamed minced pork with coarsely chopped Chai Poh ( pickled Radish)-goes well with white rice-Rm6/
Blanched Lettuce topped with garlic/oil and Oyster sauce on the side-Rm5/

Kai See Hor Fun.

Kai See Hor Fun (Shredded chicken with flat rice noodle) is quite an interesting bowl of noodle.

On it's own the flat rice noodle is quite bland but to the accompaniment of shredded chicken, prawn dumpling, beansprout, Chinese chives, a drizzle of chillies oil and a tasty broth of chicken bones and prawn shell-it is delicious ! 

This stall get it's daily supply of flat rice noodle from Ipoh- through a transportation's network whereby the vans or lorries will pick up the noodles in the afternoon from Ipoh and deliver it to a central location (usually a house) in KL or PJ -the stall owner will then collect it in the evening.

The noodle are cut not too wide and are extremely smooth....

Kai See Hor Fun-Rm4.50 plus two whole fresh and sweet tasting prawn dumplings @Rm.80/each.

Location: a stall in Restoran Uncle Meng,
Lorong 1/91,Taman Shamelin Perkasa,
Cheras, Kuala Lumpur.

Tofu Hailam.

Tofu Hailam is a super easy dish to make in a jiffy.

A simple, refreshing and nutritious meal with sliced green cucumber.

A good dip or spread of chillies sambal belacan with a combination 
of grounded six cloves of garlic, white vinegar, salt and sugar to taste.

An addictive appetizer to the main meal.

Tofu Hailam- Nyonya's style-either eat it with a dip or spread it over the tofu and cucumber.
