Last weekend, we played host to Roger and Sue from Food Tourist who were here for a short visit. After cracking our heads on where to eat, we ended up at Sek Yuen for dinner which was packed with diners on Saturday night. No pictures of what we ate since we ordered old favourites from previous visits. After dinner, we took a walk to the nearby "Wai Sik Kai" or Gluttons Lane at Jalan Sayur.
The last time I visited, we didn't get to visit all the stalls so this time round I saw the lok lok stall (one of those old ones which you sit down and eat), ling chee kang (dessert) stall, chee chap chuk (fried intestines porridge) and the grilled tofu (tauhu bakar) stall.
I was keen to try this grilled tofu (tauhu bakar) which I have heard a lot about. Covered extensively by the local press - this stall has been featured in the chinese paper, radio and television.
A small set up, there's just two people at the stall. One who is manning the hot charcoal grill to heat up the fritters and grill the tofu puffs. The owner, a lady who has had this stall for almost twenty years plus will prepare the grilled items to serve. First, the grilled tofu puffs are stuffed with shredded cucumber. Then drizzled with her own made chili sauce and topped with thick and pungent prawn paste (har koh) and crushed peanuts. She also serves tiny grilled sotong drizzled with more har koh and crispy prawn fritters on the side. A standard order with all these costs RM6. Tastewise, I thought it was pretty good but not fantastic. I still prefer the curry chee cheong fun topped with those crispy dried shrimps and the steamed egg custard here instead per my previous reviews.
