I bet my socks that some of you might have not even heard of black chicken, let alone having eaten it before. According to this site, black chicken is also referred to as the Taihi chicken, Silky chicken, or Black-boned chicken. I was so delighted when I found out that a stall in Chow Yang, Mac Roy Steam Duck Mee, carries such a dish. The last I hat it was at my hometown in Penang cooked by my mom, probably years back.
once you go black, you never go back
I ordered the black chicken in herbal soup with mee suah (fine wheat noodle.) The chicken was very well cooked and requires very little chewing. The flavor of the herbal soup was reasonably strong, and as most well prepared herbal soup, the taste of the chicken are a little weakend due to it’s flavor lost into the soup, which is actually a good thing. The mee suah was quite good, too, without being sticky nor too hard.
If you are one that loves Chinese herbal soup noodles, do try this out. At only 5 ringgit, you can’t go wrong.

it was kerol, horny, and myself
So we were hungry and we were at SS2, if you have ever been to the area at dinner time, you know it’s not easy to find a parking space. When we finally did, we were not far from this Melaka Street Restaurant. After taking a look on the menu to make sure that it was within budget, we were off to the uncharted water.
drool? drool anyone??
The place is reasonably new. I believe they might have taken over the old Vietnamese Kitchen shop lot after the former decided to concentrate on it’s 1 Utama establishment. Interior decoration is pretty basic but rather comfortable. It does try to create an old school Melaka’s atmosphere, I think.. not that I’ve been to Melaka yet..
check out our traffic light drinks!
We ordered fried asparagus with belacan, sambal squid (kerol’s favorite creature to eat), and this fried chicken with the name that has escaped my mind (something like aunty lam or .. .) The asparagus was absolutely fabulous, squid was equally good but not too spicy. As for the chicken, it came with some chili sauce for dipping, the taste gives a hint of belacan and a pretty decent job at marination. The rice served was well cooked and in a pretty soft texture, I usually avoid restaurants with hard rice no matter how good the food is.
Overall the meal was pretty good, though I am not sure if it’s a true representation of Melaka delights. The taste was just right and we did not even need any soya sauce or chili padi that usually goes with every meal. The price was rather reasonable too, for a proper restaurant setting with air conditioning.
So easy to get there..

Night market (Pasar Malam) at SS2 runs every monday night. There are several type of fancy food sold there that you don’t usually find at local food courts or restaurants. One of them would be the noodle in a box, more appropriately, a plastic container, or in Cantonese, “hap chai min“.
Looks good, no?
This dish is sold by 2 young chaps, and they usually set up their stall nearby the Magnum 4D shop. It’s usually quite busy and frankly it’s hard to miss the stall since the set up is quite unique.
The noodle is similar to those you have in wan tan mee, but of finer variety. You can choose from the 3 ingredients: BBQ pork, pork in sauce, and chicken leg + mushroom. Noodle with single ingredient is sold for RM3.80, combination of any two for Rm 4.00, and all three for RM 4.50. Obviously I ordered with all, it was a no brainer. hehe
Slurps.. the little plastic container is going to be empty in a few minutes
Other than the main ingredients described above. The standard stuff are green onion, fried shallot, mushroom, fungus, green chilli, and of course, the noodle. A thick soup/sauce that tastes pretty creamy is poured over to give you that rich taste.
The dish tastes pretty good, almost like a cross of ordinary chicken leg and mushroom wan tan mee and beef noodle (though this is pork.) I especially like the fact that it is served in the plastic container, makes it easier to eat it at the nearby misai mamak stall. They even give you chopsticks.
Try it, I think you’ll be delighted.

Many of you ah bengs love to enjoy fine food, but don’t really want to lose an arm and a leg for a meal. Well here’s something for you, awesome authentic Italian food that is easy on the pocket. How does RM 9.90++ for set lunch sound to you? Great, me too.
RM 9.90++ in an authentic place, you can’t ask for more?
The place is located at SS2 next to Public Bank, or, directly behind Maybank. Parking might not be easiest to find during weekdays, but weekends should be alright. The restaurant is run by actual european white boys (ok, maybe old men), and the waitresses wear the Italian football jersey as their uniform. The interior decoration is not overly complicated, but definately with an Italian taste. And yes, the toilet is clean.
Big plate of spaghetti, GONE!
The RM 9.90 set lunch is the cheapest combo. You can choose between mushroom or minestrone soup, a glass of soft drink, and a main dish. Usually I go for spaghetti primavera, all vege. You can also get pizzas, rossito, and more.
The food is great, the price is good. Dating a chick when you’re on a budget and yet you want to go to a quiet place with great food, go there!

Some of you might have heard about the Segambut seafood noodle, but do you realise that they have an SS2 branch? and in fact, a Subang branch too. Now if you are a seafood lover like me, you should definately try Restaurant Yu Ai.
Got clean toilet too, what more can you ask for?
The shop at ss2 is located behind the slighty famous Chow Yang kopitiam, and a few shops next to KAYU nasi kandar at Jalan SS2/10. Pretty easy to find, there is sometimes a yellow Lotus Elise sports car parked right in front of the shop, rumours to be the shop owner’s.
The main branch is on 42, Jalan Segambut utara, and the Subang shop is at 28-1, USJ 9/5P. The business card claims that the place is air-conditioned.
See the prawn? All peeled except the head and tail, very the pro! I like!
The seafood noodle comes in 3 flavors, clear soup, curry, and tomyam. Personally I like the curry flavor the best, it carries a very rich and creamy taste. They provide chili paste in a container on every table, all you crazy people who loves to have their food overly spicey need not be worried.
The noodle, or kuih teow, or mee hun, comes with 3 big prawn, fish meat, sotong, and a generous serving of dried oyster and lala. Very very sumptous. At a price of RM 11 ringgit and RM 13 ringgit per bowl for the small & big size respectively, it is not exactly cheap (how else do they finance the Elise?), but it’s worth every penny.
My stomach is full, how about yours? hehehe
