We wanted to find something yummy to eat and I thought of Korean and where else can you get the best in KL? Well, in little Korea right at Ampang of course. So we headed there and the place have like 3 rows of Korean restaurant to choose from.

After some rounding we thought we try out Ampang Duksoo-Nea Restaurant. Its a simple but decent looking Korean BBQ place, the owner is Korean and they have all their meat lined up in the display fridge as you go in.

For bbq, the minimum order is 2 dishes, so we tried the Mok Sal, its like 2 thick pieces of pork steak at RM19 and Kochu Jun which are sliced pork marinated with Korean Chili paste at RM22. To top things up, we got a Kimchi Chike (soup) at RM13.00 to share too.

The bbq was really yummy and as traditional goes, you get many small plates of starters, vegetables (with garlic and green chilies) to take with the bbq meat and of course rice.

The food is good and authentic but best part is all the vege, rice and small appetizers are no charge and total bill is RM54.00 very reasonable for what we had.

I had always been wanting to visit Jalan Sayur in Pudu to check out the food street there… finally on a Sunday afternoon, I had hours to kill and while driving out for tea, I decided to head to Jalan Sayur. Parking on Sunday was ok, I parked at Jalan Pasar and cut through the alleys to Jalan Sayur.

It’s basically a hidden street in between shophouses in Pudu converted into a food street with stalls offering all sorts of varieties with tables and stools all along the street. From what I observed, this place is mainly serving the local market as their main customer as it is the usual KL street hawker kind of environment, not many tourists may be able to take it but for people like me, its perfect!

Some of the offering I noticed here are things like chee cheong fun (quite popular from the crowd), homemade pau, porridge, all sort of noodles and my main objective, fried chicken! You will notice this small stall with crowd around it waiting for take aways. Winner’s Fried Chicken offers fried chicken drumstick RM2.40, wings RM2.00, L shaped drumstick RM 3.80, etc.

Although I am just looking for a snack, I took the L shape drumstick plus a pack of gizzards for RM4.80 and then headed for the tong shui stall for a big bowl (noodles size bowl) of leng chee kang at RM2.80.

There’s definately a huge varieties of food here and this place provides a very good local feel as well, worth checking out for a good street food feast!

Mui Hiong is known for their salted fish dishes… this humble makan place is located right at busy Jalan Medan Imbi. They specialized in salted fish dishes and the most popular one here are their steamed pork cake with salted fish.

I visited this place during lunch time with Andrew after one of our meeting in town. Most of the folks that comes here seems to know the lady boss very well, I am assuming mostly their business are from regular customers around the Imbi area.

We ordered the famous steamed pork cake with salted fish, braised pork with yam and a very unique dish, taugeh fried with salted fish and bittergound. The steam pork is very good as usual, but the portion is small as usual too. I would recommend each person to have his/her own steam pork then add on one or two dishes, its about RM5 each.

The braised pork with yam is so so only, cost about RM15-18, not really worth it. The taugeh with salted fish and bittergound is good, bittergound give a slight bitter but cooling taste then balance up with the salted fish, very nice!

Overall, it cost RM42.60 for 2 persons with rice plus drinks. Not that cheap but next time I will just order each person a steam pork and then share 1 nice dish like the taugeh. They also serve steam soup here if you fancy. Food is delicious and living up to its salted fish name, will visit again, wanna see what other salted fish delicacy they have ;).
