Penang Jawa Mee @ Kedai Kopi Five Five Five, Bandar Menjalara Kepong

Due to my new business venture, I have been eating around Kepong a lot more recently. I thought I had discovered all the great food nearby but boy, how wrong was I. In the recent weeks alone I have found new spots for delicious yet affordable hawker food such as fish head noodle, claypot chicken rice, Char Koay Teow, Jawa mee, chicken rice and duck rice.

Jawa-Mee

One of the better Jawa Mee I have had in KL is at Kedai Kopi 555 located near Bandar Menjalara’s jogging park. The stall is operated by an elderly Chinese couple from Penang and everything about their noodle from the thick and flavorful gravy to the spicy chili paste to the crunchy prawn fritters taste wonderful with the unmistakenbly Penang taste.

Bun Cha Dac Kim (Grilled Pork Noodle) @ Hang Manh, Hanoi

Hanoi is a lively city with no lack of choices when it comes to street food. There is so much more to eat besides the already well-known beef pho and spring rolls. The way the locals eat is another unique aspect to Hanoi’s street food scene. As you might have known or seen before, most of the eateries here are a simple set up of a few small tables and stools along the five foot way.

Bun-Cha-Pork

The first dish we tried upon reaching Hanoi was Bun Cha at Hang Manh street. Bun Cha is a grilled pork and noodle dish served with a platter of herbs and a bowl of savory dipping sauce. Here’s how a typical serving of Bún Chả would look like. If language is a problem, just use sign language to indicate how many servings you want. Most Vietnamese food vendors specialize in one dish only so this technique works most of the time.

Bun-Cha-Set

Anyway, here’s the entire course for Bun Cha and it consists of the grilled pork, Vietnamese vermicelli, herbs (most of them are minty, with refreshing flavors), and a sweet dipping sauce with slices of young papaya.

Street Food @ Open Air Food Bazaar, Patong Promenade Plaza

The first thing we did after landing on Phuket was to look for food. There are many restaurants nearby our hotel alright but our sights were set on this open air food bazaar instead. It was located next to the Patong Promenade Plaza and there were easily twenty to thirty stalls, albeit some serve the same dishes.

Phuket-Night-Market
Grilled-River-Prawns

Grilled river prawns should be the most delicious dish we had, they are so fresh! Anyway, if you are wondering why the prawns always come out perfect, it’s because they actually boil them first before placing them on the grill. The grilling takes maybe only a minute or so on each side just for the extra aroma so the flesh is always juicy and succulent.

In Season Musang King Durian Buffet – RM49.90 @ Bandar Menjalara, Kepong

Dear readers and friends, some of you might already know that I am venturing into the F&B business specializing in fruit related products. In fact, some of you had already ordered durians via In Season’s Facebook page and I even delivered them to you personally.
I am happy to have your support and based on the positive feedbacks so far, I think we are headed the right direction and we will strive to maintain our service and quality. This is a very hands-on project for me and I have been cutting up a lot of fruits recently.
Currently, we are heavily focused on durian because it is a seasonal fruit. But when this season is over, we will come up with many other products such as 100% fruit juices, homemade ice cream, yoghurt and other handmade snacks.

Today, we will be launching our largest promotion to date, which is the Musang King durian buffet @ RM49.90/pax. If you had followed my postings on this blog, you will notice that durian is featured quite frequently – especially those related to buffet. As a consumer myself, I fully understand that honesty and business conduct of the seller whether it’s a huge corporation or a road side hawker stall, both are are equally important.
That’s why we hand-pick only the good quality Musang King durians from our own orchard at Raub to be served in the buffet. Also, we won’t serve a large yet low-quality fruit solely for the purpose of filling you up. If the durian served is not suitable to be consumed, we will dispose of it and replace accordingly – these are our promises.
However, if you find that durian buffet is not your cup of tea, you could still place an order via online or my personal mobile (provided in the In Season Facebook page). Thanks!
