Throughout the years, this restaurant have been popping up here and there but I never got around to trying it though, until now. First, a bunch of my friends raving about the delicious fried laksa served here and secondly, it was covered by Jalan Jalan Cari Makan and several other TV shows – it has to be good, right?
Been attempting to try this restaurant for ages, somehow every time I pay a visit though, it was closed. I gave up trying for a while cause luck just wasn’t on my side. Since it was towards the end of the Chinese New Year holidays, what better time to pay this restaurant a visit? Less people, more vacant parking and etc. Lets just hope it was open though.
Was it open? Yesss! yay 🙂
The restaurant has a ‘family’ vibe? The kind of place you’d bring your family to. Yup, one of those simple, relatively spacious that serves delicious food. During my time there, literally every walk of life pays a visit here – families, grandmas, grandpas, uncles and aunties to bunch of college kids having their ‘gatherings’. It has a pretty boisterous feel to it – chatters, laughters all around, just all around energetic and cheerful.
Naturally, since this eatery is known for their fried laksa, I had to give it a go (they were also known for their Popiah but sadly, that dish is NOT served anymore). Most definitely but while I was waiting for the dish to arrive, I decided to give their green bean ‘soup’ a try. I remember buying this weekly from the uncle that used to sell a variety of these ‘soups’, in front of TMC Bangsar – until he disappeared. *sob sob* Soooo, here I was hoping the one sold here is at least half as good? (fingers crossed)
So, was it?
Tong Sui Special Green Beans, 4.50 ringgit
Yessss! It was as good. Considering how difficult it is to find an eatery that serves delicious green bean soup – too much santan? too watery? too sweet? too little green beans? This one here was perfect. Loads of green beans, just the right amount of sweetness. Yummmmmm
Fried Laksa, 9 ringgit
Looks good, ey? Yup – it sure was. believe it or not, this was my first time eating a fried laksa. What I was used to comes with gravy and it is usually wet and drippy, not dry and fried. I was skeptical but loads of people raved about this dish served at this particular restaurant for ages, so, it cant go wrong. Besides the fact that the ones served here is dry, everything else is the same. As soon as you take the first mouth, you can taste the usual flavorful flavors that accompanies a laksa. By usual flavors, I mean the kind of flavors associated with laksa and only laksa, that if you were to be blindfolded and given a taste of this dish, you’d go “aha!! It’s laksa, yawwwww.” There was shrimps, chicken, onions, eggs, bean sprouts, pineapples, cucumber, bunga kantan, lime and laksa sauce, with lye fun for noodles. This was delicious. I totally understand the hype now.
Fried Koay Teow, 9 ringgit
This was the usual fried koay teow that you would come to expect from many local restaurants here. While it did not have the same “wow” effect as the fried laksa, this dish wasnt bad at all. I just wanted a lil taste of this noodle and this fit the bill. There was plenty of shrimps, ‘kerang’, egg, fishcakes, bean sprouts. I most probably will give this a miss the next time I am here and try another dish instead.
Would I head here again?
Ooooo yes, I most certainly will. Did I mention how yummy the Fried Laksa is? Certainly worth a return.
