Kedai Lontong Mak Yah @ Section 14, Petaling Jaya

I'm still digging up old pictures as I have accumulated quite a stash of them plus I haven't had much time to take new ones yet. It'll probably take me a while to build up my usual store unless I work very hard on it. By the way, I recently had lunch at Tang House of Fishball (read my February 2006 review) and that place has expanded from one shoplot to three shoplots. Business must be really good! Although the food is on a slightly pricier side (RM0.80 for yong tau foo), it tastes great as the filling is full of fish and not pan fried making it a healthier alternative.

I have read a lot about this famous Lontong served in Section 14 hence one day I made a special trip to search for it. It took me a while as I thought the stall was at the bottom of the complex but after tracing the sounds and smells, I managed to stumble on an upstairs food court which was bustling with people. The lontong stall is tucked behind a column hence it was not easy to spot.

It has been ages since I ate lontong and although the stall's variety is slightly different from the one I am used to - it was really fantastic. I ordered the lontong with sotong and egg (RM3.30). Basically lontong consists of nasi impit which is compressed rice cakes cut into cubes. You add sayur lodeh which is a vegetable coconut curry. Depending on each person's preference, the vegetables will be cabbage, long beans, carrots and fried tempe, a kind of beancurd. Tofu is sometimes added into the curry which is very creamy. A peanut sauce is then added on top completing your lontong meal. At this stall, they added slices of sotong (brown calamari), hard boiled eggs and grated coconut which tasted great. The curry is quite mild since it has a lot of coconut milk.

If you are in the area, give this a try as it tastes great. After writing this, I feel like having some for breakfast now!
