This is actually Part 2, since Part One is the FSF char siew we had a few weeks ago. I’m still in the process of unearthing the pics..which may be in my C,D, E, camera, or external HDD ;p
Anyhow, for this round of mid-week lunchies, we’ve got the memoir- babe with us.
We are out to sooth her poor soul after reading about her disappointing experience with the Jalan Batai’s Seng Lee Char Kuey Teow.
bangsar-babe came to the rescue with her recommendation of Robert’s Char Kuey Teow, in Say Huat Restaurant, Section 17, right in front of the make-shift morning market, which then becomes a parking lot at noon & further transforms into a food haven at night, with one of my favourite tong shui stall among all the hawker fare.
Now, I must say I love this area. I remember the short stint I had staying in Section 17, & it was the only place that I know to find food.
But this is Robert’s Char Kuey Teow is the first for me. As I trust bangsar-babe’s recommendations, I wasn’t too worried of getting disappointed.
And true enough, it wasn’t let down.
The chilli is the winning oomph!, and the all the necessary charred wok- fire aroma (wok -hei) was present.
Robert is an affable fellow who handles all orders patiently (no gruff, grumpy demeanor; a common trait in those hawkers whose business is too brisk for their own good). He speaks Hokkien too!
Man, I feel right at home 😉
Below: All the necessary ingredients for a good char kuey teow laid out. Cockles, chinese sausages, chives (kuchai), fresh bean sprouts (taugeh), springy prawns & loads of garlic fried with his own secret soy sauce brew.
Though sorely tempted to order a plate after helping myself to batch-fuls of bangsar-babe & memoirs-babe’s CKT, I stuck to my initial plan of trying the economy rice here.
Seriously I love my “chap fun” for lunch, and moreover when rif says the sweet & sour pork here is good.
Well..it was good. Which is why the picture is missing. Cos I finished it without realizing I forgot to take a pic! ;p
No worries, more visits to this outlet for lunch from now on. So I’ll save that for another post 😉
Here’s another picture for you to drool over 😉
So reasonably priced right? RM4.50 for a plate of this!
I was craving something sweet & cold too & was half-appeased with the ais kacang (ABC), RM2.50. Definitely not as good as the one in SS2 Wai Sik Kai – stall #41 as the sago wasn’t fresh & chewy.
I’m certainly having fun with our mid-week lunch trysts 😉 & this week’s chosen venue is Anuar’s Fish Head Curry in Bangsar! I can’t wait!
