Traveling is also part of discovering new eating places. This second part of my Kuala Lumpur food article continues with many more interesting dining places.

It is an absolutely great meaty meal at El Cerdo located on Changkat Bukit Bintang. Together with some friends, we sampled El Cerdo’s notable dish of suckling pig and other dishes like Iberico ribs, sausage platter and seafood paella.

The half size piglet is priced at RM188. The waiter gestured us to cut the piglet with a plate. Not only is it a memorable experience for us but the food also delighted our taste buds. The suckling piglet done with amazingly crispy skin and soft meat with melting fat had everyone asking for seconds.

Among the choices of desserts, we had the raspberry sherbet and the rum and raisin ice cream. The latter is far better of the two.

Our trips to Kuala Lumpur had us visiting many places, savoring the city’s food and staying at Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral. Recommended by friends Alison and Narelle, the hotel with a casual, hip vibe offers solid bed to help us sleep through the nights.

The hotel is a convenient place of accommodation, especially for those who do not have transport as it is located opposite the KL Sentral transportation hub.

We were in Air Itam area on a lazy Sunday afternoon and since we were nearby Kafe Pantai Timur, we decided to stop over there for lunch. Located in the residential area of Paya Terubong, this coffee shop is home to many hawker stalls which mostly operate in the night. Among the sea of stalls includes the Pei Pa Duck stall.

It was relatively quiet, with only one stall selling Yong Tau Foo – an assortment of ‘ yeong liu’ which has fish paste stuffed in a variety of vegetables.

Yong Tau Foo is a famous hawker food in Ipoh and is commonly found in food court and coffee shops around the town. I personally find the Yong Tau Foo in Ipoh tastier, and was delighted when my friend KS introduced me to Nam Fatt Fish Ball Noodle House.

My family visited this air conditioned noodle shop which was located along Jalan Kampar on our recent Ipoh trip. Our meal started off with a plate of Stew Beef Noodles @RM6.80. It was served with plenty of vegetables, indeed different from those serve in Penang.

The best deep-fried yong tau foo that we had eaten is in Ipoh. The stall which looks a bit shabby and rundown is one of the many stalls cluttering under a big tree “tai shue keok” and located nearby Tuck Kee Restaurant in Jalan King, off Pasir Pinji.

It serves many varieties of fried yong tau foo like stuffed chili, brinjal, bitter gourd, fish ball, fish cakes and crispy foo chok. The fish paste is very fresh and has a springy texture.

The stall also sell different types of noodles …. curry, assam laksa and even dried ones. The curry is very lemak and the assam laksa although different from those in Penang is just as tasty.

Crispy deep fried prawn fritters with vegetables are fried on the spot.

Recommended drink… Hong Tau Ping (Ice Red Bean Shake). Unusual and very tasty – (give it an “A1”). The texture of the shake was smooth, creamy and the sweetness was just right. We were wondering how much blending is needed to make the red bean drink so creamy when this type of bean is know to be powderish when made into paste. It was so irresistible that my son had two glasses!!!


We found out a little too late that they have Loke Tau Ping (Ice Green Bean Shake) too. Already too full to have another glass, we plan to have it on our next visit to this place.


*Prices of food is generally cheaper and bigger in size than those sold in Penang*

What is “Kampar Fish Jelly”? Well everyone will presume something sweet. Actually it is Yong Tau Foo, which is mostly found in Kampar, Ipoh and KL. There are a few shops selling Yong Tau Foo in Penang and we usually visit this shop located in Sungai Nibong town (near Queensbay Mall). The clean and brightly lited shop is airy though it is located in middle of a row of shops.

Yong Tau Foo is basically fish paste stuffed into varieties of vegetables and tofu. The fish paste is very fresh and springy.


Fried ingredients are served separately and the rest of the ingredients comes in a bowl of clear and tasty soup. All goes well with choices of white rice, yam rice and even Hakka noodle with minced pork.


Another side dish – Beggar Chicken.

It was an enjoyable Yong Tau Foo lunch with glasses of  barley drink (foo chook yee mai).
