Okay, enough of Japanese food, sweets and food fairs, it is back to good old Malaysian food. Long long ago, I once contemplated migrating from Malaysia to seek greater fortune somewhere else but at the end of the day, I just couldn't do it, as I knew I'll miss Malaysian food too much. Where else, would I get good food, almost 24 hours daily???? Okay not everything is perfect as our fine dining scene seems a bit pathetic but at least we have great street food to compensate the lack of haute cuisine.
I recently had a reason to moosey down town and grab breakfast at one of my all time favourite places - Pudu. I can never go hungry here as there's good food at every nook and cranny - you just have to look hard enough.
A place I often visit but have yet to blog about is this infamous yong tau foo joint. Just pick and select from an array of goodies - I love the vegetable selections they have here. Unlike other places that serve the run of the mill stuff, you get four angled beans and long beans wrapped in fish paste or soybean skin.
the BAD - sinful barbequed pig's intestines
Another point to dine here, is for the sinfully good barbequed pig's intestines. A bite of these dark brown goodies, yields a little but very flavoursome liquid oozing out that hits the tongue just as you are relishing the intestines. Simply out of the world delicious stuff!! While they are not good for the arteries, I try to balance it out with loads of vegetables.
Since one can't get filled up with vegetables, fish paste and pig's intestines, I usually eat a small bowl of chee cheong fun with curry sauce. The rice noodles are silky smooth with the spicy curry sauce. While the curry sauce and the dried prawn toppings are not as great compared to Jalan Sayur's fantastic curry chee cheong fun, this version is still pretty good.
