When you've had your fill of Happy Hour beer in the dai-chow desert of Bangsar Baru, and you're craving for nothing but lard-laced carbs, who do you turn to?
Mel ponders over late afternoon draught Tiger in Bangsar, confused... should we risk unpredictable uncle at Tengkat Tong Shin? Head for Thai elsewhere? So many choices, yet all requiring the nasty (and irresponsible) task of getting into our car clearly befuddled. But then someone recalled......Restoran Seafood Mak Koh on Telawi 2! Sticks out like a sore thumb among the rows of sleek bars, hideous pubs, first-floor boutiques and overpriced mamaks.
We skipped the impressive menu of typical and premium dai chow dishes and headed straight for where the carbs were at!
Salted Fish Fried Rice for 2, enough to feed 4!
The details - strips of deep fried salted fish, shrimps, fresh lettuce, Chinese sausages. You can tell these were just jumping off the behemoth of the golden wok no more than a minute ago!KL Hokkien Mee - caramel darkness that oozed warmth, inspiring sobriety. Lard therapy never fails. Jane, however, declared solemnly that this wasn't all that good, for the prominent flavour was still the dark soy sauce and not the requisite balance of flavours for Hokkien Mee. She mentioned something about Setapak. Didn't take notes, too busy shoving it in.
We did good, four of us polishing off everything. Bill was a very manageable RM32 for both, given the neighbourhood. Rendered us sober to take on the dreadry Sunday drive home, the prospect of a full week of work ahead no longer fazing us.
