Once you have tasted the Yong Tau Foo here you will never eat Yong Tau Foo in other places again. My family and I have been eating the Sister’s Yong Tau Foo since their humble beginning operating from their wooden house by 3 Hakka sisters in Serdang Chinese Village.

Kah Ping/Food Court Centre – Klang

38132840322_270bbbf97b_o

Since this food court has no name to it we the locals call it as Kah Ping which is the name of one of the more popular stalls here. This is our regular breakfast hangout area after our morning tennis session on weekends.

Crunchy golden keropok-like skin paired with a sinful combination of tender Sakura pork marinated with various herbs (more than 10 of them) and melt in the mouth fat… simply delicious!

The Char Siew was just as good.

All goes well with the Wanton Noodles.

Rojak, Cendol n Vadai – SS15 Subang Jaya

RojakCendol01.jpg

Rojak and Cendol is one dish most Malaysians will definitely know about, be it from a roadside stall, a food truck, a mamak shop, or your typical coffee shop.

27022058169_6b7fb3f66b_o

Not having any registered brand name is not a problem for this very celebrated and popular Rojak, Cendol and deep fried Malaysian Indian snacks vendors along the main road in SS 15; its very existence is already an icon by itself with customers making a beeline everyday. Offering a no-frills experience of eating by the roadside.

Arguably the best in town, it draws crowds of fans who will wait patiently for their rojak. The rojak biasa is a mix of coconut fritters, crispy prawn fritters, deep fried bean curd, shredded cucumber and yam bean. You can also add sotong, a piece of hard boiled egg or a combination of both items. Since turnover is so high, the crunchy fritters and sliced vegetables are rather fresh.

This Cendol goes about the usual approach with coconut milk, Gula Melaka and shaved ice served in small colourful plastic bowls and packed with the typical ingredients. If you are seeking more bite in your Cendol, the addition of some pulut (sticky coconut rice) will give your Cendol some added texture and a more full-bodied taste.

This Uluntu Vadai is shaped like a mini donut. It’s made with flour and then mixed with finely chopped chilies, onions, ginger, spice and deep fried. Unlike the sweet donuts, this Donut shaped Vadai is both salty with a hint of spiciness.

As far as Lui Cha is concerned this could be the best I have ever tasted.

Really generous amount of ingredients. In fact, as soon as I dug in, I realized that there were way more ingredients than rice. Brown or white rice is your choice.

Croissant – Le Bread Days Bakery Cafe

Croissant

People often think of France when they hear mention of the croissant, but Austria is the true country of birth for this famous pastry. Its Viennese, not French! … Another origin story comes from Vienna, where the delicious, flaky pastry was created to celebrate the defeat of the Ottomans by Christian forces in 1683.

Croissants are a tasty pastry made by folding sugary-buttery dough to create a layered look. The dough is then formed into a crescent shape with tapered ends and baked. This gives the croissant an appearance of order and structure

Croissants are one of my favorite pastry to eat and they come in plain and other stuffing as well. In Le Bread Days their signature croissant is the Molten Salted Eggs Custard Croissant. This was introduce to me long time ago when everyone was talking about it but I never had the opportunity to try them until recently.

Imagine warm, yellowish, gooey, aromatic molten egg yolk custard flowing out as you munch through freshly baked, golden brown croissant that is shatter-crisp at the outside, buttery at the inside. So yummy.

24090148467_89d47ced99_o

We tried a few different types of stuffing and still the Molten Salted Egg Custard was the best tasting. Must try this croissant if you love all food which involves Salted Egg.

Mutton Puttu Kottu

This is my first time eating Puttu and I loved it.
It wasn’t as spicy and it reminded me of fried couscous. It was like a flavored fried rice with chunks of  mutton meat.
It came with a side of sweet chutney and some crackers.

Iddiyappam – string hoppers

Sri Lankan recipes make copious use of strong spices and hell lot of chillies; resulting to dishes that are fiery, utterly delicious and rich in flavours such as this fish curry which made my tongue on fire.

37911250425_95efe9465f_o

A must-try at Lankan Cafe is the Appam. The Appams are fluffy and chewy in the centre and crunchy on the edges. A light coconut taste fills your mouth with each bite. If you’re feeling a little bit adventurous, try the egg Appam with a sunny side up egg.

Eat to your heart’s content when you are in Taman Eng Ann

37758122162_9396c01ddf_o

Hari ini dalam sejarah

My father’s driving licence in early ’70’s when Taman Eng Ann was known as Eng Ann Estate where our family house was in No. 10, Jalan Merbok.

Perhaps Taman Eng Ann was one of the oldest if not the oldest Taman in Klang.

23875048888_64f8fe6105_o.jpg

These are some of my classmates since 1971 when we were in standard 1 from School 1 in Taman Eng Ann School and this year we celebrated our 46 years of friendship.

The school we were in was built in the early 1960s, started operating in 1963 and was previously called Sekolah Rendah Kebangsaan Jenis Inggeris Jalan Batu Tiga, Klang.
In 1967, the school was divided into School 1 and School 2 as to accomodate the increase in pupils.

Today the school is called S K (1) Jalan Batu Tiga, Taman Eng Ann, Klang.


Breakfast

All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This Hainanese coffee shop is bestowed with slightly more than half a century’s worth of legacy in Taman Eng Ann of Klang. It was known as Heng Lee Coffee Shop back in 1963. This is the only coffee shop which I still have memory of when I was still residing there until mid of 1973 when we moved out. At that time I was only 8 years old.

Breakfast here is an ensemble of thickly brewed coffee, tea or Hainanese Tea which in its essence should be renamed to ‘cham’ and not forgetting the half-boiled eggs with runny yolks to envelop the toasted breads sandwiching a cold slab of butter and ‘kaya’.

Lunch

When people you greatly admire appear to be thinking deep thoughts, they probably are thinking about lunch.

Pan Mee, literally means flat noodles. With the help of a noodle flattener, the dough can be extruded to flat noodle strands – thick or thin. The strands of noodles are then cooked in a boiling broth and served together with all the other essential ingredients.

In this stall this young lad offer something which is not common – the charcoal and pumpkin pan mee. I prefer the charcoal done in the dry version and the pumpkin with broth. Yummy!


Dinner

My favorite thing is to have a good dinner with friends and talk about life.

The Chicken Rice is served with sliced cucumber, homemade chili sauce and pounded ginger and dark soy sauce. There are different variants of rice as well, including the aromatic ‘oily rice’ and the rice balls. Chicken rice must be accompanied with a bowl of soup and we ordered additional chicken gizzards and livers. As for the chicken itself we opted for the free range chicken.


Supper

After dinner we wait for a while and after supper we walk for a mile.

Mamak culture

You can’t claim to have been to Malaysia if you have not visited a Mamak stall. The Mamak Phenomenon is the hottest, and probably the longest lasting “cultural” scene in the country. To see and understand the true meaning of “melting pot”, you’ve got to pop by at the Mamak stalls when in the neighborhood.

The term ‘Mamak’ is widely used to describe Indian Muslims. Its known to be a confluence of Indian and Malay culture and is derived from the Tamil word for maternal uncle, or ‘maa-ma’.

Typically the locals including Chinese and Malays sometimes call the Mamaks, “Ah neh”, which means brother as a mark of respect. The Malays, address them as “Bang” which is the short form of “Abang”, meaning brother.

The Mamak culture is extremely popular among young adults and teenagers who find it a safe place to hang out with friends during the night and also because it is quite affordable. The modern Mamak stalls have a cafe aspect, which are furnished with decent seating arrangement and televisions which lets them catch the latest programs or live matches as they dine.

Most Mamak stalls start their business at about 5 PM and remain open till midnight, and the ones that are similar to cafes usually operate 24 hours a day.

This Mamak stall beside 99 Supermart in Taman Eng Ann is one of the oldest here.

This Mamak stall serve some delectable delicacies like Roti Canai, Nasi Lemak, Mee Goreng, Mamak Rojak, Thosai, Indo-Mee, Ayam Goreng, Teh Tarik and more.


 

Medan Selera Taman Eng Ann

A convenient place to indulge in a wide range of good quality and tasty street food at a low cost. A fantastic food court where you can get anything from a snack, a desert to a full meal predominantly Chinese Malaysian dishes.

This place is usually super packed with hungry people during peak hours.

2 of the most popular stalls – the Popiah and Yong Tau Foo stalls.

Popiah, Asam Laksa, Curry Laksa and Kedondong Juice.

Lin Chee Kang and Chendol

Basically there are more items here that are good like the mixed fried noodles, Char Kueh Teow, Chicken Rice, fried banana fritters and such, Beef noodles and much more.


 

Bak Kut Teh

How can I blog about the good food in Taman Eng Ann without mentioning Bak Kut Teh at all. Fortunately we have a fantastic restaurant offering just that.

36289324042_1df5784b95_o

36411979356_a9f5d46510_o

I like the dry Bak Kut Teh which were prepared with dried chilies and cuttlefish with the addition of fried shallots to give it a boost of aroma. It’s also a lot spicier as well.

As for the soup version I prefer them to be in the bowl rather than in the claypot as to maintain the original taste of the thick aromatic spice broth. As for the meat choices if you order the ribs and big bone you can never go wrong.


 

Chee Cheong Fun/Yong Tau Foo

IMAG2824_HDR

Chee cheong fun, or rice rolls, are one of the most accepted and loved Chinese dishes in our nation. Chee cheong fun are essentially steamed rice rolls that are served with a savoury or sweet sauce. The Cantonese version (or Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun) is usually filled with either prawns or mince. Our local version, instead, is hollow but served with sesame seeds and a prawn pasted based spicy-sweet sauce.

Yong tau foo is of Hakka origin where fish paste is used as stuffing in tofu, bitter gourd, brinjal and fresh chilli.

8224522_u-PLLCmdyCgMTbrDHanL8AvmKKdYkTacQ_StrcUWpWs

The selection of Yong Tau Foo here is among the biggest I’ve seen anywhere. There’s green chili, brinjal, bitter gourd, fuchok, pork skin, various types of fishball/meatball, deep fried stuff, tofu, cuttle fish, and even kangkung, spoilt for choices really.

80069516_Qnbjknj0Es6Dz1QK0G4W_h29J77wP31g_V9bQO5a5wA

This is a family run business and so you can rest assured that the quality of food is consistent and taste great all the time.


 

Taman Eng Ann is a food heaven for food lovers and when you are there just find the first place available to park your car as parking can be a difficult chore. On the plus sign every eatery are only a stone throw away from each other.

Bon Appetite!

What I find unique about this place is that it’s the only place that serves, White Chicken, Roasted Chicken, Roast Pork, Char Siew AND Roasted Duck all under one roof – one stall. This is what I rarely see. Goes well with your rice and noodles.
