Hi, I'm and my email is . Please link my name back to my website .

Last week I had a day off during the weekday and decided that it was a good opportunity to visit the dentist for a bit of check up and scaling, something which I do about twice yearly, and encourage you to do the same.

By the time I was done, it was time for lunch, and conveniently, right below the dentist was this brand new pork noodle place by the name of 66 Chu Yuk Fun, so pork noodle it is then!’

The restaurant is located just opposite the Taman Megah morning market, and operates for breakfast and lunch. Parking around the area can be sometimes a little challenging, but if you’re OK with walking a few steps, it shouldn’t pose a huge difficulty nor it is an exercise in patience.

On to the pork noodle itself, the soup is sweet with porky goodness, and the bowl comes with meat slices, liver, intestine, and minced meat you’d expect. There’s also bits of lard and decent amount of vegetable to go with. If you are like me who loves an egg in your soup noodle, the do it perfect here too.

Over all I found this version of pork noodle rather competent and a worthy alternative to the more famous Kean Fatt SS3 and Ah Or pork noodle, mainly also because the dining area is a lot more comfortable, with air conditioning.

If you’re hungry for some pork noodle at PJ area, this is one to check out.

Hi, I'm and my email is . Please link my name back to my website .

For those of you who’ve been following this blog and my Instagram feed, you should know that I’m quite big on breakfasts, a big part of my daily routine is figuring out how to start my day with a good dose of morning makan that fuels the rest of the day.

Petronas Gas Station, with Morning @ Mesra
PETRONAS Station, with Mornings@Mesra

Apparently PETRONAS Kedai Mesra shares the same sentiment and now comes up with their very own breakfast offerings that goes by Mornings@Mesra – a range of breakfast combo that includes Mesra Bites, their range of buns that includes cheese stick, sambal ikan bilis, sambal udang, and kaya. There’s quite a selection here to suit anyone’s tastes.

CAPTION INSTA: Breakfast at PETRONAS Mornings@Mesra with nasi lemak, karipap, and a piping hot coffee at RM 5! Now available at close to 500 PETRONAS stations in Peninsular Malaysia! Can’t get any more convenient than that. Try it and share with me which breakfast snack is your favourite?
#MesraBites #MorningsAtMesra #BreakfastOnTheGo

nasi lemak? Mesra bites buns? Goodday milk? Take your pick

Of course, in addition to Mesra Bites, there’s the usual suspects of donuts, karipap, sandwich, and of course, our national favorite – nasi lemak!

The combo consists of Big Bites for RM 5 with a nasi lemak, karipap, and a hot or cold drinks, or you can go with Light Bites at RM 3 or 4 and have a bun + drinks, while kids can opt for Mesra Bites buns + a Goodday chocolate milk for RM 3.

nasi lemak + karipap + drinks = RM 4.90
nasi lemak + karipap + drinks = RM 4.90

I got myself a Big Bite breakfast just the other day with their signature nasi lemak, karipap, and a hot hot drink. A simple yet satisfying breakfast, and I do like the fact that they have set up simple dining table & bench within the Mesra store, very convenient and comfortable, not to mention getting to avoid that whole finding a parking space issue at your typical breakfast stopovers.

dine within, or grab it on the go

The new combo is now available at close to 500 PETRONAS stations with Kedai Mesra within the Peninsular Malaysia, a quick dine in or tapao to be consumed on-the-go, it’s your choice!

Hi, I'm and my email is . Please link my name back to my website .

Many of you know that one of my favorite restaurants in the whole Klang Valley is this fish noodle place called B & Best at Kelana Jaya, a place I go without fail at least once a month. To me, a proper bowl of soupy kuih teow or mee suah with fresh seafood is the ultimate comfort food one can ask for.

Knowing my preference, Alan, a diving friend of mine texted and suggest that I should also give this other seafood noodle place a try – Pong Kee at Jalan Ipoh, so I did.

Pong Kee is a stall located at Restoran 88, a kopitiam at Jalan Batu Ambar, just off the main stretch of Jalan Ipoh. It is the biggest stall in the kopitiam, you can’t miss it. Parking can be slightly challenging at this area but shouldn’t be a problem if you’re willing to walk a few steps.

Like most seafood noodle places, they actually offers both noodle (kuih teow, yellow noodle, mee suah, mihun), and porridge to go with a selection of seafood, including different species of fish, lala, oysters, abalone, and so forth.

My choice of the day right after a rigorous futsal session was tiger garupa & oyster (RM 24) in kuih teow. The soup base was subtle, and the portion was actually pretty decent with probably a palm full of decent size oysters and expertly cut fish fillet. While there’s no awesome sambal like they have at B & Best, this version is more than competent in itself.

For those who are from this side of Klang Valley, this is definitely a worthy fish noodle place to check out, and Pong Kee also definitely has some die-hard fans. Check out the exchange below after I posted the short video on my FB page.

Hi, I'm and my email is . Please link my name back to my website .

I supposed it is about time I post another bak kut teh entry on this blog, after all, of the some 3-500 bak kut teh restaurants in Klang (and more in other parts of the country), this is only entry number 59 of this awesome dish in this blog. My job is far from done!

For this entry, let’s go to Taman Eng Ann’s Kee Heong bak kut teh.

Kee Heong bak kut teh is one of the older names. Situated at Taman Eng Ann by the morning wet market, it is usually quite packed in the morning, while stream of customers usually tapers down towards brunch/lunch time.

You can order bak kut teh here in old school individual bowl style, or in claypots. The standard choice of cuts are available here  – big bone, small bone, ribs, soft bone, kahwan, etc. They also have yao char kuai (disappointing texture, like all Klang bkt places I’ve tried so far), and more importantly, there’s fried shallots if you ask nicely.

The texture of meat and fat here is as good as any, with soup carrying a decent herbal note, tho not nearly as strong as the likes of Mo Sang Kor or Ah Her, but plenty good enough for claypot type fare.

In terms of tasting note, I find Kee Heong pretty close to Weng Heong for me. It certainly has my endorsement for anyone who wants to have a good soupy BKT breakfast in the morning.

Hi, I'm and my email is . Please link my name back to my website .

A couple weeks ago I was invited to check out Mo-Mo Paradise at J’s Gate Dining at Lot 10. Do read up on J’s Gate Dining here if you haven’t heard about this fantastic new Japanese dining area before. It is literally a paradise for those who loves food from the land of the rising sun.

Back to Mo-Mo Paradise, this latest outfit at J’s Gate Dining offers shabu-shabu and sukiyaki in a no-frill, all-you-can-eat buffet style within 100 minutes. In another word, eat as much as you want, or can, during a 100 minute period and pay one all inclusive price for the food offered.

At Mo-Mo Paradise, the asking price is RM 68++.

The restaurant is founded in 1993 at Shinjuku Kabukicho in Tokyo with the aim of providing the ultimate shabu-shabu and sukiyaki experience by focusing on a wide variety of fresh and high quality ingredients. On top of the traditional ingredients, they also aim to provide a modern and inviting ambiance with good hospitality to diners.

From our experience, I think they got it down quite well at this outlet.

Well, what do they really offer then in terms of food?

First off there’s a vegetable bar where you get all your greens in self served style. There’s a good selection of vegetables, tofu, mushroom, onion, and even fuchuk and some fish balls.

Then there’s obviously the most important ingredients – the meat. For this session we were served 3 different types of beef and pork each, with a total of 6 varieties. My favorite was the “bacon” cut of pork (probably isn’t the best for my cholesterol level?) but all 6 types of thinly sliced meat were all so delicious.

We had the shabu with ponzu and gomadare sauce, and raw eggs for sukiyaki.

We ended the night with a couple scoops of ice cream (included in the package), and I thought the experience overall was rather positive, good was very good, and while it isn’t the cheapest meal option, it does offer pretty good value and way above average in terms of quality. Will return.
