Restaurant O & S is another treasure trove of yummy hawker food.
The place is located in a corner shop next to Caltex petrol station in Taman Paramount.
On Hari Raya break, the xes.cx makan team made a trip to the place for lunch. It was packed with people. It was so packed until we had to wait for an empty table.
Check out their dish washing system. Communal dish washing area 😀
When this place was suggested to me, I immediately did a google search to see the recommended food.
My first hit was a blog post recommending its Penang prawn noodles. It was dubbed as the best prawn noodles in town.
However, it was just so-so. The one behind Restaurant Yut Kee is so much better. It is served with pieces of mutton in it. However, I think Timothy Tiah didn’t like it as he found a bug in his bowl. Nevertheless, NO BUGS CAN STOP ME FROM MY MEAL!!
Anyway, O&S’s Assam Laksa is commendable. The soup is sweet and not spicy. Good for people like me who can’t take spicy stuff a lot.
The best meals which tasted best so far are chee cheung fun and pork noodles.
Their chee cheung fun is served with prawn paste! Other than prawn paste, you can try chicken curry.
Pork noodles is served with generous servings of minced pork.
Introducing my new addiction, Chilly Pan Mee from Restaurant Super Kitchen Chilly Pan Mee!
Unlike the usual pan mee that I have, this pan mee comes poached eggs. The noodles are slightly thicker and also firmer. The usual anchovies, minced meat and shallots are also mixed with the noodles.
Other than those I have mentioned, you also have a choice of unlimited amount of chili paste which you have mix with your noodles. The chili paste is a little bit too spicy for me and I usually give it a skip. However, the pan mee still taste good with it.
This restaurant has 4 branches. The one I frequent the most is the one located at Chow Yang, SS2. Map is below.
If you have been following my Twitter, I’ve been pimping Pappa Rich’s steamed bread for the past few weeks. I’m not a big fan of food served by chained restaurants but Pappa Rich is an exception.
I must say their steamed bread, which comes with a slice of cold butter and a generous serving of kaya, is orgasmic.
Taste better than its looks!
Coffee and half boiled eggs are excellent too.
However, the price is a little bit too steep. Its almost RM10 for steamed bread, half boiled egg and coffee! I could get the same thing at Yut Kee for rm5.50!
Pappa Rich has couple of branches. The usual ones that I go are those in Kuchai Lama and Uptown.
Last week, I woke up early to go to Pappa Rich for breakfast. Court starts at 9am so I have to wake up early. But when I reach there at 7am, it was closed! I was told that they only start at 9am!!! ZOMG WHY THEY SO LAZY ONE!!!! KANASAI!!!
Then today they served me with odd half boiled eggs…
Can eat one ar??
I asked the staff why the eggs are like that, she answered, “I don’t know. The chicken laid the eggs”
Sometimes I wonder why so many KL-lites love driving up to Penang to eat. Why drive few hundred kilometers for Chinese hawker food when you can have something equally great at Old Klang Road?
This round’s review will be on Restaurant Choy Kei, located at Happy Garden. The restaurant has great food but doesn’t look appealing. The ventilation isn’t that good and it gets really hot in the afternoon. Bring loads of tissues along. Notwithstanding all these unappealing factors, Restaurant Choy Kei is a treasure trove of great food.
There are three stalls that are worth mentioning in this restaurant namely the stalls that sells pork noodles, chicken rice and fish head noodles.
My personal favourite would be the pork noodles stalll. The pork noodles stall serves excellent dry version of pork noodles. Their noodles come with a generous serving of minced meat also black pepper minced meat underneath the noodles. The soup on the other hand comes with pieces of soft and tender pork meat and also a half boiled egg. The stall closes around 2pm.
The fish head noodles stall is also quite well known. Its somehow related to Win Soon – Restaurant Ah Soon Fish Head Mee. I was told that the taste of this noodles is around the same with Win Soon’s fish head noodles. Thus, I believe it is good. Check out Kuchai Boy’s review at his blog.
House of Fish Ball is a Chinese restaurant which serves, among otheres, Teo Chew fishballs and fish cakes. This place is fondly known as the “No Piggy Place” because it claims that it doesn’t serve pork.
I was told that there are a number of branches for this restaurant. My usual branch would be the one at Uptown Damansara.
My favourite meal is not only their homemade noodles but also their lime juice. It comes in a clear glass with a piece of pickled lime sour plum on the bottom. Once mixed, the drink becomes brownish!
It’s so good that you can actually but a container of it.
Once you’re done with your meal, they have numerous desserts for you to choose.
The other thing that really interests me is thing particular gadget which can trap flies. It has two rotating cylinder which some how attract flies. The flies are thereafter trapped in a clear casing. I wonder how it works.
[Edit: Video of the creator of the gadget. Thanks Henry for the link]
This was recommended by Sui Lin after she read a review by masak-masak. Sui Lin organised a so-called ‘singles’ dinner at Chuka Zanmai couple of months back. Unlike Chuka Zanmai’s sister restaurants e.g. Pasta Zanmai, Sushi Zanmai, to me, this place doesn’t live up its standards. Perhaps it’s because I’m not a big fan of “Chuka” (Japanese styled Chinese food).
I ordered a bowl of “hot stone rice” with unagi. I am not sure whether the rice is meant to be burnt and dry. The only thing that intrigued me was their coffee that comes in a special bag.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t very tasty. The milk in the bottle tasted better.
Price is quite reasonable. My hot bowl costs me RM22. Oh, the place is Wi-fi enabled too!

YHK Yong Tow Foo is one of the famous Yong Tow Foo restaurants in the Klang Valley. Their main shop is located at Pudu. This review would only be on their Damansara Utama branch.
The only thing that attracts me here is their chee cheung fun. If you order the ‘big’ version of it, you’ll get a bowl of noodles in the shape of Mount Kinabalu. Their chee cheung fun has a soft and springy texture and its served with a generous serving of sweet sauce.
Big & Small
Unfortunately, their selection of yong tow foo is poor and is unhygienically displayed. So far so good, no diarrhea.
The drinks on the other hand is nothing to shout about save for one drink which appears to look like orange juice with barley extracts on the bottom. When I first saw it, I thought it was orange juice with barley. But it’s actually barley water. It tasted good!
Located in an alley between two coffee shops, this small curry noodles stall is quite well known in OUG. Its only open in the morning (until afternoon). One can enjoy alfresco dining underneath the morning sun.
The curry noodles come in a thick curry sauce with pieces of chicken and barbecued roasted pork (char siew) thrown in it. The char siew is quite tasty – you may order extra. Further, it’s not very spicy.
Nescafe is not bad too 😀
If I’m not mistaken, the stall is closed every Tuesday.
One of my newest makan hangout is Kedai Kopi D.U (Edit: Now known as Mang Chuan Kik). My favourite stall would be the the stall which serves pork noodles. The taste of their noodles and soup are quite distinct.
Other than pork noodles, the said stall serves pan mee (home made noodles).
I would highly recommend that the dry version be ordered so that one can enjoy the noodles and soup separately.
