The good thing about visiting Digital Mall in Section 14 besides being able to boost the economy is also being able to visit the Medan Selera located behind it in the Section 14 Wet Market.

There are 2 levels to the food court and I usually visit the lower one. The Siam Laksa here is very good and unique but what caught my eye on my last visit is their Fried Pan Mee. There are quite a few places selling this and one of them is a shop specialized in various cooking style with Pan Mee in Kota Kemuning.

Anyway, the Fried Pan Mee is done as hokkien mee style… so its technically a Hokkien Fried Pan Mee at RM4.00. The pan mee is very thin and doesn’t look like pan mee at all at first glance. Its the usual hokkien mee fare with prawns and cabbage and a nice big spoon of sambal chili to go with it.

To cool things off… the drinks stall here offer a vast varities from coconut juice, sugar cane, juices and dessert as well. I had a bowl of leng chee kang at RM1.80.

The food choice here is good and reasonably priced for PJ standard ;).

Miharu was telling me about this place and we had wanted to go there one Saturday morning but the queue was long with people waiting outside for a table, so we decided to skip… then one morning I picked up Sky and decided to have dim sum and decided to come here since Sky also high recommend this place.

Jin Xuan is nicely renovated with half open and half air conditioned. You are then given a piece of paper to mark your order of dim sum and drinks, so your dim sum are steamed to orders but for fried stuff and all they will bring it over.

Since there are only 2 of us and couldn’t eat much… we decided to stick to the conventional dim sum of har kow (prawn dumpling), siew mai (pork), steamed fishpaste, pork ribs and a bowl of porridge. The dim sum range from RM 3.50 to RM4.00 each and RM3.50 for the porridge. A pot of jasmine tea for 2 persons cost RM3.00. Prices are ok since the size of the dim sum are quite decent too.

Dim Sum means “touching the heart” in Chinese, so character it should have includes being fine, elegant, well prepared and so delicious that it touches your heart when eating it. I would have to say that the dim sum here is quite good, above average but have yet to touch my heart la… hahaha… but pricing is ok and taste is good, so no wonder they have such long queues. Hope that they can maintain their quality of food plus service here, doing a good job so far :).

I was introduced to this place some 10 years back when I was working Taman Maluri, Cheras. Those days after work for some occasion the whole office will go there for a good and cheap makan. Prices here have gone up over the years but food is still good la.

The thing I missed most about this place is the mini yau char kwai which comes with a very nice creamy kaya. The yau char kwai cost RM3.00 for a 2 person portion and for dine in, the little kaya provided is free. The taste of the kaya is marvellous, no wonder they charge extra for take away.  The idea is simply to dip the yau char kwai in the kaya, it serve as a good thing to eat when your tongue is burning from all the spicy thai food! Take away is RM4.00 per pack with RM1.00 extra for a small container of optional kaya.

I ordered a seafood tomyam at RM10.00, chicken feet kerabu at RM 8.00, grilled sotong at RM14.00 and fried kangkong at RM9.00.  The tomyam is good with generous amount of prawns and sotong. Chicken feet kerabu is the besssst… soft, spicy and sour and Miharu can’t stop eating it. Grilled sotong is nicely burnt like how I like it with 2 type of thai style chili sauce provided, yummy! Kangkong is good too, not too spicy and very tender.

Food is still very good and it is always crowded… we even say the myFM DJ dining here as well ;).
