immortalised in hunky P Ramli / sex-bomb Saloma movies , the sidelane smoky grilled meats on pieces of small sharp sticks courtesy of the ever jovial satayman are going wide and UP. The classic open air smoky burnt charcoals with the delectable fumes have now given way to huge burners in concrete shops , lined with expensive looking table tops.

..and so it was harnessed to generate great energy ( Q i ) to power a big boat , to cross oceans and enrich lives , bringing a sense of great harmony & togetherness thus bridging the bland divide.
that was way back in the 1880 somethings. Today in PJ and elsewhere it resembles nothing like those ancient European vessels. Now it is stuffed with mostly some meats and marine things , some white vegetables ( why ? ) and those Chinese soya flakes . then again it doesn't cross oceans anymore.
must have at least 2 raw eggs and some noodles.
the Ying ( herbal soup ) and the Yang ( tomyam soup ) of the matter.
resulting in a delicious noodles in soup, or soup with salivating noodles ( or is it wet aphrodisiac ? ) ?

The banana leaf is today passionately associated with South Indian cuisine , and this olden style of eating together with the famed curries becoming popular in Kuala Lumpur/PJ as a haute cuisine , & complete with some ancient rituals too.
A few restaurants have gained an obscene following ( e.g. in Jln Gasing and Section 17 PJ ) for various reasons and some are so madly packed ( as to make it impossible to park your brand new 2008 edition Camry except 1 km away ? ) during lunch time ( especially ) that it has become a real hassle ( on your heart and spine ) to eat BLR.
Eating good as they say comes with a terrible headache, before or after ! But no worries anymore ...for we present below 2 alternative pleasant & easy going choices , and as good as any !
No more terrible crowds , no more mis-smelling of burnt meats on your eyebrows &/or immaculate neck-ties !
!. Krishna Curry House , Jln 222 PJ ( near Petronas petrol station )
really easy going place with superbly fragrant curries. from RM5 up
2. Sri Devi , Section 5A ( Kelana Jaya ) PJ
Just beside the FAM football court. The usual everything-got spread, including authentic come-from-behind India workers . Do use sign language sometimes to get exactly what you want !
Xcellent fresh fruit juices next door.
Beautiful prices guaranteed , to put some smiles back on your overloaded face.

Char Kuey Teow with eggs &
over-chilli sauce , only RM 3.50
does indeed look more bouncy ...and with more noodle taste.
Still , while the plateful has full rich voluptuous flavor the lady's masterpiece deviates pointedly from our chequered impressions of the X factored complete version aka da real thing
...though it is highly popular with the predominantly Malay crowd here.
interestingly this Mamak eatery has many Chinese stalls selling hawker favorites too ,
a truly total Malaysian Xperience...( no ? )
