Because I live in PJ...

Apart from the usual suspects, here are some other favourites for food - for cumi&ciki that is...

Did you know that this place in sec 17 has charsiew wantan mee that is pretty good. Not the cheapest of wantan mee, but damn tasty. This is were we go for wantan mee, when we cannot make it down to Taman Cheras.

At RM4.50 (large) per plate, the charsiew they serve here with their wantan mee is robust in taste and fatty enough to meet with my approval! Not as HUNKY and sexy as the Meng Shiang one, but a pretty close second.

This wantan mee stall is run by a brother and sister duo. They both speak impeccable english too.

Check it out if your are in Sec 17.

Here is a place we sometimes go for lunch, when we cannot make it down to Ampang or Pudu for the YTF (yong tau foo)...

Taman Selera, Jalan Othman, Old Town...


Ancient and archaic, this place may be... but, at RM1.00 per piece, the YTF from Seong Kee Hack Ka Yong Tau foo is crispy and tasty and to our liking. They stuff their sui kau with "real-life" veges.. i.e. you can still make out the carrots, the peas, the turnip - it's not just one huge messy slurry of brown stuffing, if you know what I mean.

And here is a place we sometimes go for dinner, when we want a quick fix of ikan panggang (without going down to Jalan Alor).
Tuck Kee in Kepong serves pretty decent Sting ray and Sotong panggang for approx Rm13.00

And this, is where we sometimes go to walk off that massive dinner we just had (when we cannot make it down to Petaling street)...
The Kepong Pasar Malam (Kepong night market) - see the uncle whose 'star is shining the brightest/highest' on that pasar malam row...

With such a cute, ingenious beacon, who can resist, giving him business?

We know we can't... and so does he (big smile on his face):D


D24 .. it's not a cupsize.. but isn't it just the round-est, full-est, sweet-est, taut-est, creamiest flesh you have yet to lay eyes on - it's nearly every Malaysian man's fantasy come true..

For those who do not know what a durian is....

The reputation of this fruit has gone before it as surely as its aroma trails after it... A good durian is sweet or bitter , or bitter sweet (depending on what you like) and has the texture of smooth, rich custard. Some call it the king of fruits and regard it as an aphrodisiac. I just plain hate it with a vengeance.

Too bad for me.. tis the season to get jiggy with the durian:P hurhur


Knock back a few cool mangosteen and be happy you are alive and well, on a Sunday night.

Tarry a while.. till the lights go low.. and the streets start to empty.

Lug your goodies home, and look forward to the next weekend- live to whack another day :D

Oooh baby, come here... my sweet... D24! Teeheehee.

I used to be a "PJ lang" before I moved to KL. Nothing quite like the variety PJ offers. I'm with you on that! :)

The luscious wantan mee! Sad lah, I stay near Taman Cheras but can't go over for the wantan mee cos it's always packed and hard for me to "rebut meja" (if you know what I mean).

I like to go Kepong pasar malam but find parking is so horrendous >_<"

I don'y know Tuck Kee have nice ikan bakar, must go n try ~.~

i have developed a weird relationship with the kepong baru pasar malam. i do visit them quite regularly but always end up buying stuff from tong kee instead...hehehe...

Criz Lai said...

I think I will need a guide if I were to go there. You know the way to write about the Pasar Malam is as if it is a Pasar Makan...yummy!! haha :P

oooh, which part of section 17? in the old sentosa cinema square there ah?

CUMI & CIKI said...


really? living in pj all my life, i use to think kl was much more exotic.. 'the grass on the other side.. ' !

yea.. we park on the curb, on the yellow line, on top of that kancil.. etc etc.. :P

really?! did i bump in2 u??! say hi next time :D

i know what you mean - the last thing you should do is go walk about a pasar malam on an empty stomach. u end up snacking on all the junk u see/smell!

yes! ye ole square

I have been going to Wah Cheong in Sec 17 for wantan mee, have to go try out the one at Mel's! Looks good.

Big Boys Oven said...

come come lets have durian party!

xin said...

is the mel's new? i stayed in 17 for 3 years and never saw tht shop name before. i think it probably took over the previous ownership.
