Snacks & Tong Sui @ Kedai Kopi Khoong, Seapark, PJ

I have been taking lots of soupy food ever since I caught a nasty flu bug that had me sniffling throughout last week. Once I got better, I started hankering for tong sui (sweet soups in Chinese) for dessert. To satisfy my crazy craving for tong sui, I have been hanging out at this corner coffee shop that has a pretty good dessert and snacks stall. It's advisable to go early to this place which opens from 4.30 pm. Everytime I am at this place it's a hive of activity and popular items get snapped up really quickly by 7 pm. They serve all kinds of snacks here: Yam Cake you see above (Wu Tau Ko in Chinese) which is steamed and sprinkled with fried shallots, fried popiah, glutinous rice, fried mee hoon and etc.

Unlike the other tong sui stall I had earlier blogged last year in
Section 17, this stall only sells the classic tong sui items such as red bean, wheat, green bean, bubur cha cha, barley beancurd gingko. Each bowl costs about RM1.30 and you can get it piping hot as they rotate the big pots on a fire. My favourite is the barley beancurd gingko - not much in terms of ingredients inside the tong sui but it's smooth and sweet.

They also serve two kinds of chee cheong fun (rice sheets); the plain ones to be eaten with the brown sauce and the stuffed ones known as Teluk Anson Chee Cheong Fun as it originates from the
Teluk Intan(Anson) in Perak. This version has no meat inside it and is stuffed with mushroom slices, fried shallots and preserved turnip. I really like it as it gives a kick to the plain ones with it's crunchy filling.

Most stall in KL/PJ selling bad Teluk Intan Chee Cheong Fun, except this one, taste ok... But the real Chee Cheong Fun in Teluk Intan is a bit oily, best one still the one I tried in Bidor, Perak, just eat it with soysauce already d*m* nice.

Alicia - wow, you have been everywhere! Did not see any pulut hitam - must have been a long time since you went there.

tulan - thxs for the tip as I'm no expert in Teluk Intan chee cheong fun. I actually had the last piece of the chee cheong fun for the night as it was so popular.

kampungboycitygal - lucky you! I spent 1-2 hours in Ipoh and the food was delicious already. Can imagine the fantastic stuff you can get when you stay there longer.

This place normally rocks, but somehow after the tong sui cools down in transit home / not eating it for an hour ... it lacks the oooomph!
