Sg. Lembing Noodle & Yong Tau Fu (Non-Halal)

Sungai Lembing was once the richest town in Pahang, known as El Dorado of the East. This tin mining town is located in Kuantan, Pahang - Malaysia.

(The only access road made of wood connecting Kuantan and Sungai Lembing)

(The famous "hanging bridge" where tourist can have their adrenalin pumping)

Everything seems nostalgic here: the buildings, the people and the price of food too!

Curry Yong Tau Fu Noodles: The curry soup was creamy and deliciously spicy! The fish paste for the Yong Tau Fu was fresh and tasted out-of-this-world!

Yong Tau Fu Noodle: The same amazing fish paste for the Yong Tau Fu and the Noodles were different. Nothing beats the home made and fresh noodles here!

I call this the economy version of the Yong Tau Fu Noodle: Same paste, same taste. The soup tasted less of MSG.

Overall, you get quality but simple food at cheap prices when you are in places like Sungai Lembing. If I could remember clearly, it only cost us about RM3 or RM4 per bowl of noodle.

There are many back-to-nature attractions in
Sungai Lembing. You can also see more pictures and hear more from Sungai Lembing boy blogger and videos of home-made-video expeditions.

Yes! Yippie! Tastybananas was in The Sunday Star!


Hoo Yee Kee - Prawn Noodle (Non-Halal)

"Nothing beats the prawn noodles in Penang", says one of my blog readers.

Now I say, "What if Penang brought their Prawn Noodles to KL, isn't it the same?"

Restaurant Hoo Yee Kee is known by many for their tasty prawn noodles. The sardin-packed-crowd at their newly opened outlet in Desa Setapak is a sign of confirmation.

Surprisingly, the menu is not limited to only a single type of Prawn Noodle. You can have Lala, Rib Bones, Crab, Seafood and many more.

The ordinary bowl of Prawn Noodle I ordered was up to the mark. The soup was not too salty and diluted (although the prawns were miniature in size).

Kate's Rib Bones Prawn Noodle was delicious. The Rib Bones did not not have the strong porky smell and taste. It blended very well together with the soup.

For Prawn Noodle lovers, this is a must try. You can visit their website to find out more.

"Hakkakaya" - translated as RICH HAKKA

TCK 1920 Hakkakaya is one of the funniest restaurant names I have come across.

Don't you think so?

When Kate brought me here, I thought they served Japanese food till I read the fine lines: Old Pasar Road Cafe.

HAKKA KAYA, must be the influence of feng shui. Here are a few names I thought they should have tried: Hokkienkaya, TeoChewKaya, Mestikaya, Cepatkaya or Manyakkaya.

I did not know what to expect from a "Rich Hakka" restaurant. When handed the menu, a list of East meets West dishes were available.

Having craved for Nasi Lemak for the whole day, Kate ordered Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang. It tasted very good indeed. Tasty chicken rendang, addictive anchovies, irresistible sambal and delicious coconut milk pandan rice.

Since Kate went East, I ordered West. The Carbonara I ordered came with a little cup (yes, a little cup) of mushroom soup. Though small in amount but it made up in quality.

I began to realize that the chef must have a fetish for "fine dining" presentation of food.

The Carbonara, served with
sufficient slices of chicken ham and mushroom was not bad considering I was already half full from the "kau kau" mushroom soup.

Getting bored of settling for either soft drinks or chinese "leung shui", we ordered "Bu Bur Cha Cha".

Once again, Hakkakaya did not fail to surprise us with the quality of food. It was served tasty creamy, rich with coconut milk or "Santan".

We were already beyond our expectation at this point. Do try the food here if you are bored with the extended choice of food served in One Utama. Located at Old Wing One Utama, it is tucked between to Kenny Roasters and Mardigras Pub.
