When adopted by a different culture and people, food often gets adapted as well. Bit by bit, the authenticity gets assimilated to the local taste, and after decades, you get something that bears very little resemblance to its origin. This however, does not mean that the end product is necessarily inferior.

Two such cases on the opposite sides of the world are Chinese food in US, and western food here in Malaysia. You can’t find General Tso’s chicken (my fav!) in a traditional Chinese restaurant here, nor can you order chicken chop with Hailam sauce in Washington DC.

Update 27/10/2013: The owner has sold this stall, it is no longer Freddy Western

Which brings us to today’s topic, Freddy Western Food, comes with awesomesauce, literally.

We discovered this stall by chance one day when Kerol ordered chicken chop from this stall that looked surprisingly… clean. Her verdict was very positive, and if Kerol said it is good, it must be, she’s got one of the fussiest tongues among the gang.

A couple nights ago we headed over to give this place an introduction to Suanie since she just got hit by a chicken chop phase (to go along with her Teow Chew porridge and pan mee phase concurrently)

I had the pork chop with hailam sauce (RM 9),  Haze ordered lamb chop with pepper sauce (RM 9.50), Horng had pork chop with mushroom sauce (RM 9), and Suanie, of course, ordered chicken chop with mushroom sauce (RM 8.50).

While the pork could be just a bit juicier (due to the cut, I think), the sauce was really, really good. Good enough to overcome the slight dryness of the meat. Suan was very happy with her chicken chop, as does Haze with her lamb chop that came with a bit of bone marrow too.

There’s another secret under the meat – mash potato with freshly fried bacon chips. The little touch really made the dish yummy max!

While there are other more famous Western Food stalls such as those in SS3 near Shell petrol station, this is the first one of this kind that I found worthy of a blog post. Give it a try, I think they serve pretty good spaghetti too!

  1. myhorng

    so far i still think the chicken chop with hainam awesomesauce is the best.

  2. I pass by this place very often (even now!). Haven’t tried the chicken chop though.

  3. myhorng,
    yah I’m gonna try that one next!

    Huai Bin,
    do it! 😀

  4. LOL at 1st i thought it’s like a fancy western restaurant!

  5. Tey Cindy,
    heheheh

  6. It has been awhile since I had chicken chop. I think I may had it at the Coliseum Cafe on Jalan TAR many many years ago. BTW, does the restaurant still exist? I don’t live in KL at the moment.

  7. wow nice post..i’m gonna try it!

  8. is it available during lunch time?

  9. Meng,
    yah Coliseum Cafe is still there if I remember correctly!

    cindy tong,
    do it. 😀

    yoyo,
    actually I don’t know, but I doubt it.

  10. Dude, Most people go there for Ahwah(阿華) hokkien noodles. Do check out his moonlight kuehteow…It’s ze BEST!! If you want authentic Hainanese chops, head over to Yut Kee or Coliseum Cafe!!

  11. gnoey,
    Yah Ahwah is nice but this chicken chop’s really good too. You can’t exactly brush it aside and recommend only Coliseum/Yut Kee without trying it first, kan? Plus those other 2 places are not exactly nearby for PJ folks

  12. myhorng

    Authentic Hainanese chops? i doubt there’s such thing. LOL (no offend ya)

  13. KY,
    As a matter of fact, I did try Freddy’s already. While his serving is quite decent,I reckon he’s still a level below those 2 places I’ve mentioned earlier. Maybe as you’ve said, it is a closer place for PJ folks when they fancy some localise western food cravings!

    Horny,
    There ARE authentic Hainanese chops around. It is not necessary for an object to originate from Hainan to be able to use/carry the Hainanese name. It could have been that these hainanese chops cooking style were created by Hainanese working in Malaysia during the colonial days. Now, go out there,get a life and don’t get so techie about it. (no offend ya) 😀

  14. myhorng

    gnoey, get a horny life? LOL. u explained a lot… it just weird to call Hainan sauce lar, just saying. :p

  15. Horny,
    How can you say Hainan sauce is weird when you can accept:

    1. Tartar sauce (Why? got so much tar inside until need to to put 2 “tar” words in the name??)

    2. Thousand island sauce (WAAAH! got so many islands inside the sauce one ah?Damn Keng!)

    3. Bad Ass Coffee (Now now.. don’t tell me you really believe these coffee originated from a bad fcuking ass now, don’t ya?)

    The list goes on. and on.

    Get a life, mate. Yes a horny one will do just fine, thanks!

  16. Oh and I forgot me smiley. 😀

  17. If I remember correctly, that coffeeshop has a good Hokkien mee + Wat Tan Horr at night. 🙂

  18. myhorng

    gnoey, i tot accepting and weird is 2 different thing? no? and dont forget the emoticon lar. later i got u r serious and offended by me with all your harsh response.

  19. myhorng,
    hahaha cos u’re hainan!

    gnoey,
    haha chill all, in fact I know why it is called thousand island sauce, a little googling will get you the answer. I shall try yut kee and coliseum when I get the chance.

    J,
    oh yes! famous too!

  20. It’s cheap indeed!!!! Must go try!!!

  21. my my… affordable western food 🙂 don’t have to break the wallet! I don’t really care about the ambience as long as the food is good

  22. mimid3vils,
    yes, do it 😀

    Leo,
    yes!

  23. You should go there earlier in the evening, and try their limited German meatloaf. It’ll blow your socks off. Yes, its that good.

  24. Why your baby so cute one cover her forehead one?

  25. Eh, KY, you’re not with Mellissa anymore?

    • we’re not longer together, been almost a year already but we’re friends ya. 🙂

  26. Wow, the Porkchop looks good. Aside from Yut Kee or Coliseum, I think the one at Champs is not bad too.

  27. why is Haze covering her forehead?

  28. my next is to try their spaghetti!!! Looks good tho~ 😉

  29. Hey KY…you can find General Tso’s (yes, American Chinese take out kind) in Paris. Not France, but the SS2 Paris 😛 I couldn’t believe it at first but yeah, they do have it there!! 😀

  30. omg best news ever! 😯
    thanks thanks

  31. Reminded me the ABC foodcourt western food stall in my hometown Mentakab, Pahang . Some good stuff just hidden at the most random foodcourt huh..

  35. Ok. Will try it out when I go Paramount later.

  36. ahhh freddy western is no longer there!! ;(

    i saw a stall for let sign on the shop

  37. swift Falcon

    Haha :mrgreen: , i agree with you about food changing to suit local tastes. i am an expat Malaysian living in New Zealand and i cannot find any western food like the type at Freddy’s in new zealand at all. I quite miss it actually.

    At the same time, Chinese food here is strange as well, either because its cooked mainland China style, or suited to local tastes which is totally different.

    Luckily, there are still pure malaysian restaurants here to remind me of home.

    Looking at this site is making me a bit homesick, especially for the food.

    Give me a yell if you want to know more about NZ.

    • swift Falcon: ahh, NZ, always thought of it as the.. little brother of Australia. It’s a good thing that Malaysian food is now pretty much everywhere too.

  38. It’s Confirmed, Freddy is gone and replaced by Eddy, who simply and lazily just removed the “FR” from FREDDY, to become EDDY WESTERN. The Food’s lousy and very forgetable and the fries are of the cheapest grade and quality.

  39. Anyone know Freddy western move to where? 😥
