My lunchies

This post is specially dedicated to my sister June. She's always asking me what I have for lunch everyday thru Skype. She misses the M'sian food so much and she's going to 'strangle' me for not taking her to have some of the specialties near my working place. The followings are my favourites and what I usually eat during my lunch time.
Savoury Rice Pudding (Woon Jai Kou) Taufuking (grilled taufu pieces, grilled sotong, meat floss, mixed veggie and sauce)
Chinese Rojak (Varieties of fruits in rojak sauce)

Minced meat porridge which comes in a set with a piece of fried pancake and a cup of herbal tea.

"Dai Bou Meen" (Wantan mee with wantans)
(what is special about this is dat the noodles are without black soya sauce) a
There are two stalls (next to each other) under the 'Big Tree' near my working place – one which serves Beef Noodles and another Curry Laksa and Noodles with Chicken. If u are familiar with Pudu, the stalls are just situated behind Caltex Station and the former Majestic Theatre. The stories of the Beef Noodles and Curry Mee stalls were featured in one of the Chinese Magazine – Famous Cuisine No. 34.

Beef Noodles

Curry Laksa Noodles
Chicken drumstick and Char Siew Noodles Soup
Pork Meat Noodles
"Yong Tau Fu", "Chee Cheong Fun" and my glass of "Kat Jai Suin Mui" (lime with assam boi juice)

I don't think June will be interested in the Yong Tau Fu cos she prefers the home-made ones from her dear sister (dat's me) *cough cough*

Salted Fish Fried Rice

Hahaha, drooling now?

P/s: Actually I have another pic of my favourites, Cendol and Indian Rojak, which I'm not going to post here in case I get "jeered" by Jason cos the Cendol is nothing compared to the Cendol in Malacca.

So many choice ler!!!LAst time i work not much choice :( everyday almost the same. The taufuking look so delicious ler.

There are still lots of food near my working place but those are my favourites. But I still find dat I've to think of what to eat everday *tongue out*.

Too bad u don't take beef. I only take beef noodles from this stall. The soup is very different from others.

Hahaha, u don't have to cook if u don't want. Just go out and 'da pau' will settle ur problem.

The stall is called "Taufuking" and its right in front of a coffee shop opposite Pudu Plaza. It opens at about 1.00 p.m. They have many other varieties, not only the sotong and meat floss (my favourite).

Dat's what my frens used to tell me. I'm so lucky with so many good food surrounding me and I still complain I don't know what to have for my lunch.

1+2 mom:
U used to work in Pudu too? Yup, the taufuking is really very delicious. Finish the packet and I'll be full.

in the middle of night but reading ur post makes me hungry!!!

Arrghhhhhh... how is missed malaysian food!!!!

You work in Pudu area?
I work in hwana area.. so everything halal, some more.. no coffee shop nearby, want to go coffee shop, must drive.. Sien.

Since I'd moved to Shah Alam and started working here, every morning I crave for a lomaiguy or chucheongfun.. tough to get. :(

i'm drooling...definitely drooling...
honestly, i have not tasted some of the food i.e. taufuking and even woon jai kau..

you are so lucky to have such variety of choice for lunch...esp those hawker foods.

At Wed Mar 15, 12:33:00 PM, Blogger Tracy said...

Hahaha, got u drooling too? Wow, 7.40 p.m., still haven't taken ur dinner yet? No wonder u were drooling.

Aiyo, 'dai tou por' must be craving for all the so delicious food.

The stall near my working place sells 'genuine woon jai kous' (I mean they're made from 100% rice flour, the Ah Po told me she had the rice grinded). I tried making the 'woon jai kous' from the rice flour in packet bought from the stores but they came out 'lum pet pet', not so nice.

U missed M'sian food too? U must come back often. M'sia has the most varieties of food.

Zara's mama:
Yup, I'm working in Pudu - the ulu ulu place but the food here is simply the best. There are lots of other good food in Pudu too like Chicken/Duck Rice, Ah Koong Fishball noodles, Pan Meen, Fish Head Curry, Steamed Talapia, the famous 'Tong Sui' stall, Prawn Mee, etc.. etc... etc.

Too bad to hear dat u're working in a place where food are HALAL.

Come to Pudu, I'll treat u to whatever u like to eat.

The 'taufuking' is very new, so, sometimes I've got to queue to order. For some ppl, they'll treat it as a dessert but for me, I treat it as one of my lunchies (sometimes I can't even finish the packet).

U bet, there're a lot of hawker food here and I think I'm very lucky to have so many varieties to choose from.

At Wed Mar 15, 04:34:00 PM, Blogger blurblur said...

Wah!wah!wah! i'm drooling like nobody's business here..;p

So much varieties, lucky you! For my lunch, it's either fast food, chicken rice or cai fan...pathetic...if i wanna try something else, i gotta take a bus or cab...:(

At Thu Mar 16, 01:53:00 PM, Blogger Tracy said...

Wah, u got to take a bus or cab to have a better meal of lunch? Poor thing.

Mom of Princess Yoyo:
Hahaha, I'm very sure u miss M'sian food too. I'm not sure whether there are any M'sian food over in Japan but if there are, I'm sure the tastes are not the same. Too bad to hear dat u've to wait for a year to have M'sian food. Never mind, the next time u come back, make sure u have the food u like and eat until 'song song', okay?.

Oh, my daughter's okay and the operation was a minor one. Thank u so much for ur prayer.
