Forlorn but at least fed, by Mama's Kitchen, TTDI

I am a Taman Tun resident aspirant. While I continue to trudge in circles in the hunt for property, I have sadly resigned to writing off this area, given the price bracket vs the humble size of my planned loan. The conveniences and choice eating spots, the green leafiness, location and proximity to the park must be accounted for. Still, one can continue to hope. And return to eat here again and again.

I'd been poking around other food blogs' archives and read about Mama's Kitchen's in Taman Tun here and here. So one Friday evening, we arrived to check out the goods.

The place was busy busy busy! Tables were filling up as we arrived at around 7.30PM.

Claypot Lou Shu Fun - Runny yolk fever! The sight of it perks me up from my real estate despondency!

Mix everything in, the wonderful minced pork, the slices of liver, egg yolk - very important to distribute evenly top to bottom, side to side of claypot so no strand of lou shu fun is slighted. Inhale, exhale and dig in! Fragrant, fatty and moist.
Kong Nam Noodles arrived looking rather bland but the first slurp confirmed otherwise. The gravy was mildly eggy but flavourful and very tasty with the yee-mee and the interesting mix of ingredients, almost like they dumped in everything leftover in their fridge. But how has century egg ever wronged anyone? NEVER!

We also ordered the 5-piece Yong Tau Foo, arrived hot, fresh and substantial.

Great place for more than just lou shu fun! The noodle menu alone warrants another visit. Also noted with interest Claypot Brothers next door. Once again, this has got to be the best neighbourhood ever!

This surely a must visit place for comfort food. Loh Siu Fun is my favourite.

The rat tail is the must order dish as you know they are hard to come by in Penang.

Ciki, the only part of the rat to love!

Unka, looking to purchase... and yes keen on those areas too but there's just that something about TTDI!

Ai Wei, go try! But dinner time's jam packed though. Be prepared to wait!

Sean, ooh, Sri Petaling's easy access indeed! You sure nothing good to eat there? I've read otherwise! Cutting back on artery clogging stuff...hmmm, believe it when I see/read it!

WorldWindows, as comforting as your favourite blanket!

Pure Glutton, I like mine dry the best! Have you tried wrestling with slippery lou shu fun swimming in soup? It's hard work! :-P

CK Lam, yes don't remember seeing much of it in Penang. Here, it's available in practically every noodle stall.

550ml jar of faith said...

SC, you read my next visit's order! Roasted pork noodle! That was on everyone else's table, along with the lou shu fun.

Allie, I read on Criz's blog sometime ago about the moonlight hor fun place? That's about as close as I can think of... just the runny egg part, that is!

Food Paradise, and it's well worth the wait, trust me!

Nomad Gourmand, you're doing Stan Chart too?? All ze best to you! You'll have every reason to indulge after that!

Babe KL, I read about the Pregnant maiden fried rice at Claypot Brothers somewhere, can't remember where! Ever tried it?

Timothy Low, it's the pits isn't it?? When poking around food blogs on an empty stomach?? Hope you found proper nourishment!

Selba, ooh yes I think you would too!

sakaigirl said...

I love Lou Shu Fun! especially when its pippin hot, with egg please!

Nic (KHKL) said...

at first, i told it was an abandoned kopitiam cos it's closed everytime i pass by the area. during daytime..haha!

there's something very interesting with the lor shu fun/mince meat/raw egg combo. and the punch is always some salted fish! oohhh, orgasmic!

Bangsar-bAbE said...

Haih...property in TTDI is wayyyy out of my budget! It's a nice neighbourhood to live in, but if I were to pay for the installment every month, I'll have to close my food blog! =P

550ml jar of faith said...

Sakai Girl, yes I think I could've used a couple more eggs in the claypot myself!

Nic, salted fish on top of all those ingredients?? Now you're talking!!

Bangsar Babe, yeah, it's heartbreaking! :-( The landed property was just so far off my budget, I started looking at condos in the area, but they just aren't really my cup of tea.
