I would like to thank two of my good friends, Marzie of Wishing on a Falling Star and Jean of A Great Pleasure for tagging me with this food meme!
Soong Kee Beef Ball Noodles in Jalan Silang - This place has been around for ages. My Mum first took me there when I was seven. That's more than 30 years ago. I remember having my first coke there too. A typical order would be wanton noodles with minced meat sauce (where have I heard that term before) and vegetables. The beef soup would contain the succulent beef balls (we always order more balls)! And the chili sauce is simply the best. I usually finish half a pot, I'm not kidding! My friends will vouch for that! Each element of the meal is enjoyable on it's on and that's the beauty of this place! Only problem is the lack of parking. But there is always the LRT! This is my all time favourite place!
Chutney Mary's in Bangsar serves authentic Indian food. However for lunch they serve banana leaf meals. No you don't eat the leaf...it serves as a plate! DOH! Banana leaf meals is fast gaining popularity among all the races in Malaysia. Restaurants are mushrooming up all over the place. Even with all the competition they remain crowded throughout lunch and beyond! A meal consists of several types of vege dishes, chutney of the day, papadam (google it) and usually chicken/fish/dahl curry. Meat dishes are available and they a huge renage to choose from. Problem is can get very crowded and stuffy. This is where Chutney Mary's comes in! They get most of their business at night because of the Bangsar night activities. SoO during lunch they have special menus that have really reasonable prices for good quality food! It's cool and cozy and we can bring daughter without any problems. One time she even slept through the entire meal on the cushioned seats by the wall that quiet and cozy it is! My favourite Indian food place since I discovered it. Before that it was Sri Paandi's in Section 11 which serves the more tradional banan leaf meals but is just too crowded to enjoy the meal!
Chilis - We used to love the steak and protebello fajitas until they took it off the menu recently. So we switched to Mushroom Jack with Steak Fajitas. Turned out pretty good so that is now our new favourite dish at Chilis. Then again because I was lugging a camer aroud they might have thought I was a food critic or something because the service that day was better than usual! Daughter likes the grilled chicken with veg nad kids eat for free too!
Old Town Char Kueh Teow - under the Yum Yum Tree - Actually I don't think this place has a name because he sublets from a larger restaurant. I discovered this guy about 25 years ago. He fries in the morning at one restaurant and in the evening at another. Both times there is usually a long queue and sometimes the wait can take up to half and hour or more. But people still come back because it's just plain good! Instead of reinventing the wheel I'm just gonna use Marzie's description because it's the csame everywhere. Hope you don't mind Marz! "Char kway teow is a popular noodle dish in Malaysia and Singapore. It is made from flat rice noodles, fried over very high heat with light and dark soy sauce, chili, prawns, cockles, egg, bean sprouts and Chinese chives. "
Tai Thong Dim Sum - This place has a chain of restaurants and serves some pretty good dim sum. The dim sum is very fresh and they have a lot of varieties to choose from. We usually go there for lunch. We're also planning on introducing this to the little one soon becaue she loves prawns! Since everyone knows about dimsum I won't elobrate anymore and let the picture do the talking.
