A few days ago, I decided to head up to Bandar Seri Damansara to join Kim and Gareth for dinner. I usually avoid going there in the evening, but since Kim tempted me with the promise of “very good pork tripe soup“, I made an exception that ultimately proved to be the correct decision.
UPDATE 18/10/2010: unfortunately the uncle’s retired…
Kedai Kopi Matahari with pork innards soup at night!
Kedai Kopi Matahari is arguably the biggest and busiest kopitiam this side of Bandar Seri Damansara, there’s about a dozen different hawker stalls with most of them serving different foods in morning/afternoon and evening/night sessions.
As fate would have it, our table happened to be situated right next to the stall I was most interested – “lou yau kei” (老友记) – serving braised or soup version of pork innards + meat + yam rice.
braised or boiled, pork innards for your picking, yam rice too
I went to the cheerful uncle at the stall and ordered a bowl of soup with everything in. 10 minutes later what I got in front of me, for mere RM 9, was a bowl of very fragrant and peppery soup with plenty of coagulated blood, 3-layer pork, tripes, intestine, and something that looked & tasted like pork tongue. It was delicious!
The accompanying yam rice was very good too, with plenty of yam cubes to chew. The dinner turned out to be much better than I had anticipated, the availability of coagulated blood really made my day.
Kim, KY, Gareth, and Kerol
Kim also swore by the curry mee at the same restaurant, Gareth and Kerol too were happy with their Hokkien mee and wantan mee. I should return to the same restaurant and try out other dishes, there’s even laksa sarawak in morning/afternoon session, intriguing.
this isn’t something I would order though – Cum for RM 1.60
I also spotted this interesting drinks at Kedai Kopi Matahari, Cum selling for RM 1.60. Don’t think I’ll be ordering that. :S
