Woon Chai Koh (Rice Cakes) @ Section 17 Medan Selera, Petaling Jaya



The great thing about having a food blog is my friends always give me food tips. This is a treasured tip as I've been looking for yummy Woon Chai Koh for the longest time ever since I ate the supposedly famous one in Kedai Kopi Khoong which turned out to be a huge dissapointment. My fascination with Woon Chai Koh started ever since I tasted the famous rice flour cakes in Tiong Bahru, Singapore.

Found at the same food court I discovered yummy fishball noodles, these ground rice flour cakes(RM1.50) come in four tiny pieces. They're just the right texture balancing between soft but yet firm. Another great plus point is they add a lot of preserved radish (Choy Poh in Chinese) which has been fried in garlic and soy sauce. Do give them a try as they're great for a light lunch or a snack.

Stall No. 11
Section 17 Medan Selera
Next to Section 17 Wet Market
Jalan 17/21,
Petaling Jaya

(Opens from 7.30 am to 2.30 pm)

Jackson - Congrats on the arrival of yr niece. She's so cute in the pixs. The topping is preserved radish or what we call choy poh. It's a nice combo and this is so far the best I have tasted.

where exactly is this stall ya? is it in a coffee shop or part of the wet market? and is this the market located in the square or the one opposite sin chew jit poh? thanx!

Wow! I have never seen such a dish in the USA. Looks yummy!

boo_licious said...

moochie - it's in a seperate building next to the wet market. Inside the building is a small food court/medan selera and you look for stall 11. Yes this is the mkt opposite Sin Chew Jit Poh.

lannae - it's pretty simple to make as it's just steamed and then the topping added on top. Getting the texture is a problem too as it can be too soft or too hard. I think Jo's Deli has the recipe, google for it and you can make it at home.

moochie - hope u like it. Try the fishball noodles also which is nice.
