Restoran Teow Chew Meng, Subang Jaya

We were in the Subang neighbourhood couple weeks back and it was dinner time. Cruised around and stumbled upon this shop with lots of photographs of its dishes pasted on its entrance wall. Great!

Hubby has this porridge craze going on, so he ordered the Seafood Porridge (RM10.00). It came loaded with ingredients. The soft, plump fishballs were especially memorable.

I ordered the Seafood Fried Rice (RM10.00) which was not bad, though I would have preferred it spicy. It was teeming with prawns, so I was happy!

This restaurant also sells a variety of other dishes such as Mee Sua Tow, Seafood Noodles, Octopus, Kerabu Mango, Seafood Tom Yam Noodles, Seafood Roll and 3-Taste Oyster, to name a few.

WMW has a post on the SS2 branch of this restaurant too. I believe the menu is similar in all its branches, be it Penang, Subang, SS2, Kepong or PJ.

Chong Yen (Steam Fish Head) Food Stall, Jalan Chan Sow Lin, Kuala Lumpur

We have been searching high and low for this restaurant, ever since watching Anthony Bourdain having a feast here. Hubby and I are fish enthusiasts, so last Saturday we went a-hunting.

Amidst mechanic shops and scrap yards, we found a steamed fish head stall under a tree. There were 2, actually. We chose the one with more crowd, obviously!

That's how the restaurant looks from outside.

That's how it looks inside....kinda dodgy, but who cares! The place was packed with customers.

We saw the workers busy cleaning and trimming fish gut/stomach.

We ordered the Hong Kong choy sum (RM6.00), steamed crispy goodness with a dash of soy sauce and browned garlic!

The piece de resistance. Cheong cheng (salted bean paste) steamed fish head with fish gut/stomach (RM26.00). It's cheaper without the fish stomach, but we were feeling adventurous, having never eaten such fish stomach before. The fish was meaty and steamed to a perfect tenderness. The sauce was heavenly; sweet, salty and tangy.

A close-up of the fish gut/stomach. It's really quite tasteless, with the texture of chewy squid. Not at all gross and slimy as I had imagined it would be. It goes really well with the bean sauce and steamed fish, absorbing the taste of the gravy.

Vote For CHANGE!

This post will remain at the top till 8th March 2008. For newer posts, please scroll down.

Come 8th March 2008, it will be the first time I am voting, having just registered late last year. What prompted me to register? Blog-savvy folks would have read countless political blogs, and while this is not one of them, for this month, at least, I will join in the campaign to oust the incompetent degenerates. Too long have we been voiceless, taken advantage of and taken for granted, governed by a disgraceful bunch of lawless, immoral, parasitic invertebrates (aka leeches). But with the rise of people power in this country, it is time to make every vote count! This year, I have "vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition". So in view of the upcoming election, here is a reminder to all of you to vote for change!

Eating in

It's always good to cook and eat at home, we get to experiment with ingredients, and since we are both voracious eaters, we usually end up cooking big portions so nobody goes hungry. Here are some of the "casualties" from our kitchen.
