Best Curry Noodles - Restaurant Kum Chuan, Subang Jaya

This Kum Chuan delicacy is a cross between KL and Ipoh styles. A good compromise if I may say.

KL is lemaky. Alot of santan and milk lots of oil giving it a bright red sheen on surface and also a heavy dose of sweetness. Too much will get you jelat.

Ipoh style has more spices, much less reliance on on oil and santan. You can find lots of the ground spices suspended in the broth. What I like is the savouriness that gives a sense of well-being. Too much santan causes bloatedness.

The bowl here is savoury but still has the some amount of santan and sweetness but happily it hit a sweet spot in me. I found a happy balance of the Ipoh and KL styles. Enjoy

Choy Kee Curry Laksa - SS19 Subang Jaya

My friend took us to this little gem in SS19. Just in front of SJKC Lick Hung. The Curry Laksa is very similar to those in Ipoh. Strong on the rempah (spices) side and low in santan (coconut milk). Savoury rather than sweet and laden with extra cockles, what a treat. Get extra meat from the roasts stall and other sides.

There was an extra bonus. They allow me to add extra cockles toppings. Much appreciated as this lovely half-coooked molluscs are a treat and it's no longer so well received by the younger generation who finds its rawness not palatable and also the health issues involved with unhygienic farming. Lovely lunch

Jyu Raku Japanese Restaurant - Subang Jaya

Happy camper for the diners. My 2nd visit and certainly not the last. They have been the marquee Japanese food for SS15 for ages. Mind you competition is tough here as there are numerous other eateries around. I think within earshot there are 4 Japanese joints.

The sashimi set is fresh and tasty as the meat speak for itself. This set is to die for and this time we managed to order the sea urchin. Sweet and lively in the mouth, the taste is a combination of the earthy sand it crawled in and the salt of the sea.

Another dish to shout about was the Teapot Seafood Soup. Superior ingredients and stock made this dish so delectable and it is a must order for next visit.

Jin Xuan HK Dim Sum - Dataran Sunway, Kota Damansara

Another day another dim sum for the Cantonese. Yum Cha (drinking tea) is kind off associated with Dim Sum and also breakfast in the general sense. It is also used for tea time. Dim Sum is the famous bite-size food probably equivalent to sushi and tapas. The ability to have Dim Sum is blissful and brings plenty of smiles all round.
The Dim Sum here is of standard since I started eating five years ago. Sadly those that are average will only last a few years. Also maintaining the standard of food is not easy especially as the restaurant age and people just fail to notice standards are going south and competitors are moving in. Seen this often enough

Pork Noodles, Restoran Sing Seong Teck Mui - Kuala Ampang

Another day another rbowl of noodles. Malaysia is so blessed that we get to eat anywhere and at anytime. Most stalls close at 2pm but this fills the void. 3pm is like the graveyard shift. But the hungry soul needs sustenance sometimes due to job irregularities.

And here we are. Faithfully it opens at 3pm. A nourishing bowl of good soup, noodles and pork slices, minced and spare parts. Thumbs up!

shudaojinli Chinese Restaurant - Sunway Nexis

I got a treat from my classmate. He runs a business nearby and wanted to take us out for a meal at a newly opened restaurant. These food fed 5 male adults.

It is of the Mainland Chinese/Malaysian Chinese fusion style. The dishes were good. A mix of rich and simple food.

The 2 tastes Chinese Carp head was opulent. It came last and we were not able to do justice to it. The collageny skin and bits and parts of the head were most sought after.

The white chicken was by no means white. The skin told us a different story. It was a bit like the salty chicken. Thumbs up for flavour.

The 2 plates of shrimps were simple and savoury, done the Cantonese way. Crunchy prawns with simple direct style to let them speak for themselves. No remnants left behind.

Finally a simple peasant dish. Potatoes with vinegar and spiced up with dried chillis. Lastly the comfort food for many who have links to the farm land and villages. Cabbages with slices of pork belly. Simply got lost in a fit of nostalgia
