Jojo Kitchen @ Kuchai Lama

21 03 2011

While searching for a nice place to eat pan mee (flat flour noodle), I came across Jojo Little Kitchen which received positive reviews across numerous food blogs.

There were a variety of pan mee served at Jojo Little Kitchen. I ordered the dry pork pan mee (RM 6.50) which came with strips of black fungus, fried anchovies, minced pork, sweet leaves and fried shallots.

The appeal of pan mee lies with the smooth noodle mixed with the crunchiness of anchovies with the savory taste of mince pork.

In this sense, Jojo Little Kitchen’s dry pork pan mee was certainly tasty.

Once all the ingredients were mixed up with the noodle, a bowl of delicious pan mee was waiting for me to feast on.

While not the best I have tasted, it was certainly good enough to warrant a second visit.

The traditional soup pan mee (RM 6.00) was equally good.

The soup was rich with pork taste which I believe was prepared differently compared to the usual pan mee soup which is cooked primarily with anchovies.

The noodles were springy, the pork was also sweet but the serving was a slightly small.

Overall, I was satisfied with the quality of food at Jojo Little Kitchen. Although comparatively more expensive than coffee shops, the quick service and air-conditioned environment do make up for the steeper price to pay for the food at Jojo Little Kitchen.

Hawker stall @ Jalan Klang Lama

31 08 2010

Every time when I drive along Old Klang Road, I can’t help but to notice scores of people eating at a make shift stall opposite the BHP Petrol station near to the turning to Kuchai Lama from Old Klang Road. Hence, I decided to try out the food one evening just to find out for myself if the food are worth eating. There are actually two stalls there. One is selling ‘Tai Chow’ while the other, Wanton Noodle.

First up, I ordered ‘Wat Tan Hor’ or Flat Rice Noodle with Egg which costs RM 6 per plate.

One of the main criteria for a good plate of Wat Tan Hor is the smoothness of the noodle.

Here, the dish did not disappoint at all. In fact, the noodle has ample ‘Wok Hei’ which made it so tasty. The prawns were also fresh.

Not forgetting, the slices of pork…

The Wanton Noodle (RM 5) was equally good. Slices of barbecued pork complement the dish very well.

Although not as good as Meng Kee Wanton Noodle, it was nevertheless still delicious.

The two stalls are opened from evening till late at night. Good place for people hunting for food at the wee hours of the night.

Restoran Ful Lai @ Kuchai Lama

22 08 2010

Mention the word ‘Dim Sum’ and the first thing that comes into my mind is Restoran Ful Lai at Kuchai Lama. Located just opposite of Pappa Rich, this coffee shop is usually packed at any time of the day. In fact, their business is so good that their operating hours stretch all the way till 3 a.m.

Two words can probably sum up their Dim Sum; fresh and delicious. The price is not really cheap by comparison (our meal costs RM 50++), but the food was really good. I shall leave you all with the pictures of the food we had. Highly recommended if you are a Dim Sum lover.

Hawker stalls @ Jalan Kuchai Lama

15 04 2010

Food lovers who frequent along Old Klang Road must have come across this wonderful row of hawker stalls in front of Wisma FGA along Jalan Kuchai Lama. These hawker stalls are opened in the evening and it is not unusual to see people crowding the area by 6:30 p.m.

What makes this place so popular is the tasty food that are sold there. Cao Cao Lamb is probably one of the best known stall there. While I have no idea how long it has been there, the old lady who is running it has a knack of barbecuing lips smacking BBQ lamb. Beside that, they also sell BBQ chicken wing which is equally good as well. The skin is nice and crispy while the meat is moist.

Besides that, there is a stall selling tong sui. I took the longan with sea coconut. The taste was just right. Not too sweet and not too bland either.

Customers will also spot a peculiar prawn mee stall called ‘Ha! Ha! Har Mee’ which presumably is a marketing gimmick to catch people’s attention.

Putting marketing aside, the prawn mee was worth ordering. The prawns were of reasonable size while the the soup has a rich aroma.

Lastly, we also took the fried kuey teow. Unlike the usual ones, this particular stall uses duck egg instead of chicken egg to fry with the noodles.

As a result, the char kuey teow has a distinctive salty taste to it. It was very delicious and the long queue of customers was a clear indication of its popularity.

The best way to look for this row of hawkers is to find Wisma FGA. They are just along the roadside as you turn in from Old Klang Road.
