too young to remember ?

...its gold 2 B 4ever old

SS2
, PJ is probably the most vibrant eating zone in the Kelang Valley . The Mondays only pasar malam ( 5 to 9pm) with its fantastic range of street/stall food is incomparable, having achieved cult status some many years ago. Its many "upstairs one" hairdressing saloons are legendary. And who can forget the mother of all food courts ' Medan Selera,SS2 " in the central square !

Many new shops/cafes come and go here and the turnover is fast ( remember to check first to see whether your "best in da world" noodle/kuih shop is still here before you bring your outstation friends over !) . You never know

cozzz...new unrecognisable young ones still rush here....furiously

...like this shining Old Taste Ipoh White Coffee (SS2, PJ)

situated on the Big 2 level corner lot , the other end of the KFC row

Hip n Trendy wi-fi plus oldies nostalgia they tempt, setting the trap for the
new breed of
under 2.0 kg laptop-on-the-coffee-table
left hand holding nokia 5310
right hand holding her
post adolescent youngish crowds

The Malaysian favourites we had tasted average, served by an army of black uniformed aliens ( probably) , in Xtra large shiny black & white bowls with food neatly displayed (RM7 to 9 a bowl / plate ) , ( RM3 to 5 a cuppa ) & (RM 5 to 8 for colored juices )

The "i m older than u" ambience is a shade or 2 away from the more matured even more old but polished Old Town White Coffee , who has more handsome (white) dressed waiters and classier older looking ( ya mean rustic , dear ) tables and chairs.

Both provide exceptional convenience ( n need we say comfort) , so its worth a visit ( especially if you need to bring her somewhere fast , say upstairs maybe ...)

mamak Rich

Ever since that fateful day when he single handedly dethroned the unsinkable Chinaman Chow Yeang off the building of the same name in SS2 Petaling Jaya and carved it into the form of the Wooden ( Kayu ) Icon , there has been no turning back for this 24 hour Maharajah wannaB.

One time ( what the nerve ! ) he almost took on the Genting Highlands Supremo up in the clouds, until something din happen.

Anyway he slyly positions himself strategic , always near the happening places with the happening crowds , like near the Curve and besideTesco Damansara Perdana, PJ for instance.

The discerning ( but greatly puzzling ) crowds seem to love him , even if they hated him (?)

Why , he has the enviable knack of transforming humble poor man's dishes into Gold , like this economy rice now become Golden Nasi Kandar.

We like to call it Nasi Mamak Royale

...coz its only RM7.60 for 2 wet scrawny lady's fingers + half a soggy egg plant ( raised from a browny pot of oily spicy broth) , a spoonful of cucumber carroty pineapplely acar-acar AND a baby-sized slippery curried squid with whiskers , + 3 to 4 Xtra quick & wavy sprinklings of different coloured oils , all sitting on top of
... 1/2 a plate ( or 7.6 table-spoonfuls of white rice )

Some say his kind of spread ( like the one above) is gorgeously to-die-4 delicious ( haha ! omg) , what about you ?

peaceful Chinese bamboo basket buffet

Chinese Cuisine is famed for its great diversity, legacy of the all-conquering Emperors fresh from their Conquests creatively pampering themselves vigorous with abundant wild women first and 2nd, passionate food.

Indeed the eunucky Palace Officials' sacred duty was to scorch the heavens & earth to come up with newer, faster more rejuvenating elixirs & tonics , so that his royal highness...

...may feast & play errr , like a proper King ... lest his angered Majesty cuts off a few more organs.

But then Triple Eyebrows Dragon King , in turn , to appease his long suffering concubines, will never fail to ushure one more stunning "dim sum" , a bountiful yet subtle, yet gentle , so warm and forgiving...... culinary masterpiece guaranteed by the Imperial Heavens to sooth even the most jangled nerves.

...that extra smooth flowing banquet flavored by 18 secret ingredients from the backyards plus 88 fragrant herbs high up in the 9 mountains .

And so the spillover treasures from a few thousand calming years has descended upon us mere mortals to share today.

First stop in Damansara Jaya , PJ . Corner shoplot ( near RHB Bank) Hong Kee.

A KL Big food bloggers favourite small jaunt.

2nd Estacy the Damansara Utama one ( near Village Park) , for a more than 30 maybe 50 different types of steaming hot......char siew pau, Chinese pastries , signature pork fatty meat bouncing balls , chicken feet , century egg porridge , flat noodles , sticky rice and etc and etc. Not forgetting also got prawns in slippery transparent skin.

The price of your dimsummy affair fluctuates around RM3 to 4 something per basket/silvery plate . A normal eater should be happy with 3 baskets ( RM10 ) while a Glutton will not stop until he hits minimum 8 ( RM 25 , for prosperity )

cannot come down already

Ever since petrol price / litre went up some many months' ago , the local eating out scene has changed. Predictably , gluttons are the first hit by this calamity as the shopkeepers take revenge and scaled their prices mis-accordingly, such that even when the petrol prices are now down to around RM2 a litre from RM2.70 , these same shopkeepers pretend dunno.
But never mind lah, this revamped retidied Teo Chew BKT SS2 Petaling Jaya with the yammy dark rice predictably mild on flavor is still acceptable to many people , even though it tastes more like meat soup.

Of course the price for 1 small bowl of this famed libido enhancer with some loose button mushrooms , fatty skins , bones and meat pieces peaks at RM8 per head on top of additional charges for rice RM1.50 and the fairy tea RM1.50 a packet.

Eating out has never been the same since that fateful night on June 2008

gold mine in the State

While not exactly a State , it nevertheless was so premier that it almost felt like one . Those days it housed such mavericks aka Black Sugar ( who can forget ! ) , the Unforgettable , Dreamland , the Submarine , Coolers Bar and El Etc... where Sri Melaka first nyonyaed & Blooming Flowers first bloomed wildly.

In fact this was where the sunken & sinking white elephant Menara PJ is and where PJ's one time most famous Hawker Square was situated, before it was rudely knocked off by that White Jutting Ugly Monster.

then this celestial Gold Mine... glowing in the dark , richly and orgasmically raped in between the HSBC and CIMB in PJ State.

A cool few RMmillions in the making still not letting go " why , I can still go much higher "

anyways it continues to serve this delicious colored rice with the fatty meats and squids to full houses each day as it rakes in more ...while it vulturally eyes yet another disparaged Big Building nearby err ...

...like another State Cinema , maybe ...?
