Restoran Ten-Tien Fatt @ Subang Jaya

10 07 2010

A while ago, my colleague introduced a famous pork noodle stall at Restoran Ten-Tien Fatt located opposite of USJ 6 along Persiaran Kewajipan. Ten-Tien Fatt is one of those local coffee shop which consists of many small stalls that are commonly seen around town. When we arrived there during lunch hour, the place was already packed with people which is a good indication of its popularity. Apparently, the pork noodle shop is single handedly run by a foreigner which I presume is employed by a local Chinese.

Since the coffee shop is situated right on the ground floor of an apartment do expect limited tables and lack of air-conditioning. We sat at the back of the coffee shop which is an open area with make shift ‘pasar malam’ type of umbrellas to shield customers from the hot sun.

But for what it is worth, the pork noodle (RM 4,30 for a big bowl) was really good. It came with a generous amount of pork lards which definitely gave a distinctive flavour to the soup.

The pork balls have a springy texture and tasted fresh. Thumbs up.

Besides the pork ball, the stall also included mince pork meat which goes very well with soy sauce with sliced chilli.

Overall, I am really happy with the meal. The soup has the right amount of taste (sweet and flavoursome) with a healthy dose of lards for the extra ‘kick’.

Ka Fei Tiam @ Subang Jaya

4 07 2010

Having been to Ka Fei Tiam recently, I thought it would be a good idea to eat there again, albeit trying something different this time around. After ordering their Western dishes, my impression of this place wasn’t as positive as compared to my first visit.

I should have know that Ka Fei Tiam being a local coffee shop isn’t going to offer any good Western dishes. The Mongolian Chicken Chop (RM 13.50) didn’t taste great at all. In fact, for the price I that I was paying for, I would have expected something better.

The Oriental Chicken Chop RM 13.50) also failed to impress me. Whoever came up with the dish must have a good explanation of putting the word ‘Oriental’ into a Western menu. The chicken tasted as if it just came out from the freezer for deep frying. The tomato sauce was the same as the sweet and sour pork gravy. Talk about using the same type of sauce for cost cutting measures… or a good reason for having the word ‘Oriental’.

Both dish came with the usual french fries and coleslaw which were at least edible compared to the meat.
