Chee Chap Tong @ Jalan Sayur, Pudu, Kuala Lumpur



Ever since I discovered the Wai Sik Kai (Gluttons' Lane in English) located along a tiny road known as Jalan Sayur which is off the main road, Jalan Pudu, it has been a favourite place of mine. There's a lot of good food at this small backside street begging to be tasted.

Here's something I rarely see around nowadays, this stall was serving Chee Chap Tong which is soup cooked with the pig's intestines, pork meat and other spare parts of the pig. Run by a couple, the husband will be manning the stove and the large wok. He keeps stirring the items in the wok which has the intestines and salted vegetable in the stock. As and when orders are placed, he scoops up the soup with a ladle and picks out the soup's ingredients with a chopstick. If the level of the stock drops, he will add more. Although intestines are cheap to get, it's not easy to clean them. Right behind their stall, you can see buckets and buckets of the intestines soaking in water.



Here's a close up of the huge wok they cook the soup in. It's on slow fire to keep it warm as and when customers order their meal.



We ordered a bowl of the soup to try which comes with a bowl of rice. The soup is quite mild tasting with just a tinge of ham choy (salted vegetable). It's a complete meal for the night especially taken with the rice.

(If you are driving from Pudu Jail, this is the small alleyway just before the turn off to Jalan Pasar. In the morning the Hakka Mee stall is along this road. This stall opens for business in the evening, around 5 to 6pm onwards.)

I have tried Chee Chap Chook but not the soup version with ham choy. I remembered they put deep fried intestines in the porridge. I have made ham choy soup with ribs, firm tofu and tomatoes. I like the soup with white rice too. Were you in the Marco pasta cook out?

flymeng - yeah, I find this dish unusual as I rarely seen this anywhere else. Nope not at Marco pasta cook out - not so privileged to get invited but food looked good.

There's a good one along Peel Rd where a number of stalls park by the road opposite Carrefour. Never been there for quite sometime tho. Hope the stalls are still there.

If I am not wrong, it's a Hakka dish. It's delicious. And they add extra soup for you at no extra cost, usually.

I used to patronise a shop selling this. It's a corner shop across the Air Panas market.

On another side of the market where the Rukun Tetangga pondok is, there is a medan selera with almost all Chinese fare. Excellent porridge there!

tummythoz - is this at the corner coffeeshop opposite Queen's Park?

mamabok - sending u lots of it vide the virtual h/way!

bahibhyap - where is the Air Panas market? Sounds fascinating.

Tummythoz said...

Only know that place as Peel Rd. If it's d same, it's among d hawker stalls on d same row next to the coffee shop.

Jalan Sayur is also famous for nyonya kuih. I love them.

Air Panas is in Setapak. Take the Jalan Genting Kelang road on the way to TAR College. At one of the junctions that lead you to the hot springs, turn right and go straight to the end where you will come to a T-junction. Turn left and the market and Rukun Tetangga pondok is in front of you.

tummythoz - must go explore Jln Peel, yet to try the food there.

puspha - I didn't try the Nyonya kueh that day but did snap a pix of it. Will put it up next wk.

bayibhyap - thxs for the info. Now must look for time to go try that place.

OMG! They have this in KL? I had this really long time ago in Seremban and it was really, really good! Though back then I didn't really realize how it was not too clean and not exactly healthy we did enjoy it.

I think it's a Hakka dish and don't think you can find it easily. Definitely an acquired taste :)

pinkity - yeah, it's those items you either hate it or love it.
