SKH River View Seafood Village @ Ulu Klang, Ampang

If you are after a Klang or Teluk Gong type of seafood restaurant and do not wish to have a long drive. SKH Riverview Seafood Restaurant in Ampang had it all (perhaps a little pricier !). It is in the Ulu Klang residential area and parking is never a problem.

The >2kg river Soon hok or Live Sand Goby (notice the sand?!) costs us a whopping rm200+ at least. It was supposed to be more tender and fresher (cause it's a alive? or from the river?).

House + Co @ Bangsar SC

House + Co is a home furniture show room with an in-house cafe. This makan place is pretty obscure, I would not have realized if the waiter did not approach me with a Food Menu.
For appetizer,
Top Hat
Pumpkin Soup with Garlic Bread
a hearty dose of cream soup
We were there for dinner and thus, most of their signature dishes were gone, no Laksa.

Nasi Lemak
Sotong/ Rendang/ Chicken accompanied with the almighty Kangkung
Cream based Fettuccine
with lots of Clams and two Mussels
Before leaving, we spotted some great cakes on display, Prune Layer Cake that prompt us to return for Lunch perhaps..

Grape Juice
very refreshing, great for Post-Spicy-Meal

Food court [Seong Kee YTF] @ PJ Old Town

My dad told me that I used to come here when I was little. Frankly, I couldn't remember this place at all and probably my taste buds weren't fully developed that time. So, in order to bring back some memory, we had the NG TEW LEE [intersting name - in canto] Fish Ball, which was here almost 20 years ago.

very soft and springy
(good stuff - comparable to TongShin Fish Balls)Ng Tew Lee Fried TongFun

Ng Tew Lee (gosh, I love the name) used to be the busiest stall in the food court. However, 20years later, this is what happened. .
Seong Kee is featured in the recent TV foodie show and this is why they drew such a crowd to this heaty open-spaced area. They 'wrap' each of the Yong Tau Fu on the spot and fried each dish of yam abacus individually.

We waited for an hour under the afternoon sun for the following delicacy..

Hakka Kao-yuk
Hakka Yam Abacus Bead (Shun Pun Ji)
Hakka Yong Tau Fu Besides the Hakka dishes, they are also popular for thier Assam Fish.

It was quite worthy of the wait, but we were half-fulled when the Seong Kee orders arrived. This is because during that one-hour, we had been ordering from their neighbours.

Ice Kacang

Lin Yuan Pumpkin Steamboat @ Peel Road

Golden Pumpkin Porridge steamboat is Lin Yuan's signature. The soup base is rather special unlike the usual watery-base or perhaps the clear porridge (in Pudu). One could taste a slight sweetness from the pumpkin in every sip of the light porridge. And I like the concept of cooking in a clay pot.


RM12.90/pax for standard

Besides the steamboat, they do have some side orders, crabs (remember to ask for the price..) as well as the fried noodles/ rice.

Cantonese Fried Noodles
Where? Queen's Park Cheras, Jalan Shelley, KL

Open from 5pm till 12am
