Here's another part of Petaling Jaya which I never knew existed until I recently read an entry on Vincent's Waisikkai. Although I'm familiar with Sungai Way for Ah Sang Bak Kut Teh, the market and the area surrounding it, I was astonished when I read Vincent's entry on a place to eat within the village. Armed with my handy roadmap (I didn't have Splashie Boy's superwoman GPS who sweetly tells you which turns to take to reach your destination that day), I found this place quite easily. One thing that struck me about the surrounding area was the roads are super narrow (they're one way streets) and there were so many Indonesian stalls around. With signs proclaiming they sell Minang food, Bakso, Pecal, Lontong and etc, you will think it's actually Kampung Baru. I guess due to the proximity of the village to the factories means there's now a high number of Indonesians residing here.
Once you get your bearings right, it's pretty easy to get here. Although the restaurant does not sport any signboard, you will see the Mixed Pork Soup sign and the huge metal container used to boil the pork soup. An old man runs the stall together with his young helper. Remembering what I read from Waisikkai, I ordered the works - stewed pork trotters, mixed pork soup and yam rice. The mixed pork soup was my favourite. The bowl came chock-full with all parts of the pig like the stomach, liver, lung, intestine, belly plus pork balls. I really loved the tiny pork balls which were tender and mixed with bits of dried cuttlefish giving it additional aroma. Served with lots of coriander and chopped preserved vegetable (ham choy), the soup was slightly peppery.
The yam rice was aromatic with chunks of soft yam and dried prawns that went really well with the mixed pork soup and the gravy from the stewed pork trotters.
Although the pork trotters' gravy was quite full of flavour and thick, I didn't like the fact it was full of lean meat. I guess next time if I revisit this place, I will have to ask him to give me the trotters rather than the lean parts. Pricewise, this place is great value for money. An order for mixed pork soup and yam rice is RM4 while the stewed pork trotters is about RM4. The place also serves char kuey teow and chicken rice.
