Foodies day out – OuG market & Loke Yuen Chic Rice

The OUG hunt continues…

This time, we got bangsar-babe and rif joining us..

at 830am..

on a Sunday..haha..

Of course we had to visit the van of the super – yummy butter cake, of which I sampled last week and returned this week for more.
This time we were earlier and managed to grab a box of the coffee marbled version. It is just as good, if not even better. The chocolate one tasted as decadent as it looks, with a layer of chocolate-y stick to the top- of- the- mouth “crust” , for the lack of a better description.
Spongy, moist and utterly sinful..this is worthy of a return trip!

Corner of Jalan Hujan Rahmat and Hujan Emas 5. Look for the van “Leong Hup Roast Duck” or THE queue.

Sadly, the donut and potato ball Aunty was only selling dumplings this weekend, but fret not, we appease ourselves with these…

Alley next to TMC Kopitiam on Jalan Emas 3. Mornings only.

curry mee
We see RED. Literally. And I meant the colour of course šŸ˜‰
While it was good, it failed to beat the one in O&S Paramount, PJ.
7/10 from UnkaLeong (who sampled it last week) and 4/10 from bangsar-babe. Myself felt that the soup was anemic in both flavour and richness a good bowl of curry mee demands.

The open air stall.

curry mee
Unka noticed that the aunty from this pork noodle stall (in Restaurant Lucky; which is right beside the “alfresco” dining alley) while we were chowing our curry mee last week, takes a sip from EVERY bowl that she dished out, giving it a seal of approval before it leaves her “kitchen”.

Fascinated, we ignored the much famous version at the Sun Sea Restaurant which is a road turn away, & headed here specifically for this bowl of porcine specialty.

curry mee

Generous, definitely, for RM4.30.
An egg, loads of veg, minced pork balls, pork slices and liver in cloudy broth that looks extremely promising but somewhat still fails to topple the standards of the Subang SS15 one or even PJ SS3 Kean Fatt’s.
Maybe the Sun Sea one would have fared better? Well..there’s only one way to find out šŸ˜‰

curry mee
My choice of brekkie?
This superbly fragrant nasi pandan of which I spied last week during the queue for the cake. Full infusion of aromatic pandan and lightly coconut milk coated rice with fried dried shrimps and anchovies. A BIG wow in a small package. RM1.20.

curry mee

Manned by an assiduous young couple, they were really friendly and quick to pack for the growing crowd. I rate this a MUST-TRY, as not only it is uncommon, it is darn tasty.

The really fragrant and crisp dried shrimps and anchovies in separate containers.
The rice is tinged light green, which hints at pureed pandan leaves boiled with the grains.

curry mee

The black urn of witchcraft..

curry mee
As I walked pass this stall, a whiff of warm comforting ginger scent assailed to my nose, stopping me in my tracks.
Could it be??
For I dare not hope
…does this stall has the ginger sugar syrup that I longed for??

And the answer is YES.
Hmmm..The hint of spicy-sweet coupled with the freshly squeezed soya bean.
Perfect start of the day for the tummy. I so dig this market!!
RM1.80 for a 500ml bottle normal soya bean milk & RM2.50 for the Black soya bean version.

It was one happy Sunday morning šŸ˜‰

And the adventure continues.. Next – Lunch!!
