For something as ubiquitous as wantan mee, you'd think it's easy to find one that's delicious. Not really. After trying dozens of mediocre ones, I think I have finally found one that I feel is good enough worthy of recommending - Kei Suk's (Uncle Kei) wantan mee stall in Pudu.
Kim Kia sells pan mee and pan mee only. That's why they call themselves the pan mee specialist. It used to be a stall but with the overwhelming support of their customers, they moved into a proper shop located just a stone's throw away from its original spot. Waiting time could get excruciating so make sure you are not in a hurry before eating here.
If you ask me where to get the best satay in KL (note: Selangor excluded, especially Kajang), my answer would be Pak Din satay in Gombak. It took me almost a year to come up with this conclusion, one that I could only make after tasting all the well-known satay restaurants and stalls around the city.
The list includes Satay Station, Zaini Satay, Nur Satay, Hj Senen of O Mulia, Klasik Satay, Satay Sri Melaka of Datuk Keramat, Zainah Ismail, Kasim Satay, Sen Kee, Sate Atok and many more. So you know I am pretty darn serious about this.
Operated by an elderly couple, the stall has been in business for the past 40 years and still going strong. Since there's no signboard whatsoever, this fried noodle stall is known to the locals as 'Fei Lou Chao Fun'. Pork lard oil is a key ingredient and it's used liberally when the uncle fries the noodle. If you want a healthier version, jut tell him to use less oil.
This is John, he sells one heck of a good Penang prawn noodle in Sungai Buloh. He's from Balik Pulau, came to KL since 1989 and had a short stint as a chef at SS2's New Paris Restaurant. Shortly after that, he picked up the techniques of cooking prawn noodle from his sister, who now operates Say Huat coffee shop in Section 17.
He manned the prawn noodle stall at the said coffee shop for almost 20 years, before deciding to relocate to Sungai Buloh about 7 years ago.
Now, he's stationed at Golden Kim Wah, a new coffee shop that just opened for less than 2 weeks. It's the most spacious and cleanest coffee shop in the vicinity.
If you find yourself in Selayang one day and craving for something light and tasty, I highly recommend Soon Kee Teochew seafood and porridge at Canton City coffee shop. The stall is a hidden gem and it's manned by an uncle who has been selling at the same spot for more than 10 years.
Well, this is surprising. I did not have the slightest clue that the famous Line Clear nasi kandar will relocate to Kampung Baru after they were ordered to vacate their original premise in Penang.
Today is the second day of their operation in the new outlet, so I decided to drop by to check it out. I also read from the news that 70% of the kitchen team has moved here, which include the cook himself.
