While my fellow Pinoy Travel Bloggers are away from the City, I decided to stay in the City Center to have a little bit of street photography, try the street foods and discover more food places:)
One of the most famous food stalls
Earlier this morning, I got an email from a local prominent blogger named Rebecca Saw of RebeccaSaw.com thanking me for posting my appreciated for Malaysian Food. We exchanged emails and finally decided to meet for dinner along with her friend Jo Ling.
My favorite Char Kuey Teow Stall
She recommended that we try another nice eating place in KL that is better than Jalan Alor in Bukit Bintang. The place that shes recommending is called Pudu Wai Sek Kai which literally means Glutton Street in English.
Char Kuey Teow
When I heard about her recommendation, I immediately said yes… There no one who can recommend best places to eat other than the locals themselves right and besides For a gourmet nomad like me, I prefer eating in hawker areas rather than in regular restaurants.
Desserts served with shaved ice
We arrived at around 9pm and the street is so much alive and full of people who came from different parks of KL just to enjoy the food from various food stalls lined up along the street. Food Stalls there are usually selling a variety of hawker fares.
Jo Ling accompanied me and introduced some of the food choices from various stalls and the first food I recognized was the Char Kuey Teow. For the unfamilliar, Char kway teow is a “stir-fried ricecake strips” noodle with belachan, whole prawns, deshelled cockles, bean sprouts and chopped Chinese chives.
Pak Kou with Chee Cheong Fun
The noodles smells really good and I love the way it was cooked. Was it spicy? Yes as they normally cook it that way but you can instruct them to lessen the spice if you are not really into spicy food.
Another food we ordred was Char Koay Kak – a fried rice cake which is also known as Chai Tau Kueh. The cook is from Penang and no wonder, this street food is very popular on the island of Penang.
Wan Tan Mee
Pak Kou with Chee Cheong Fun – White Rice Cake made from ground rice flour with pork skin cooked with curry gravy.
Winner Fried Chicken
True to its name, the fried chicken is really a WINNER and its best eaten with chilli sauce.
With Jo Ling and Rebecca Saw
Another nice noodle dish that we tried is Wan Tan Mee – another noodle dish popular in Kuala Lumpur. I like the fact the way they cooked it and the pork toppings is heavenly:)
Most of the food are single servings and the price is ranging from RM2.5 to RM7. The food here are so affordable and soooo delicous. Pudu Wai Sek Kai (Glutton Street) is located in Jalan Sayur off Jalan Pudu, 55100 Pudu in Kuala Lumpur.
