So, I’m going to be mean today and show you some of the calories I collected from my weekend KL trip.
1. Seafood Curry Noodles
Located in a quiet alley in the town of Segambut, this noodle outlet enjoys a thriving business selling seafood noodles in three flavours: curry, tom yam and clear.
Curry is the hot favourite and that’s what we’ve been craving to eat since our last triip there. It’s really the best curry noodles I’ve eaten. Not that I’ve eaten much to begin with. Haha.
Each bowl is so chock full of seafood (mussels, clams, big prawns and squid) that I wanted to donate some to the goonfather. But I didn’t because it was so delicious I had to finish the bowl even if I exploded doing it.
The curry soup is literally to die for!!!
2. Fried Chicken Claw
We had this as part of our dinner in a dirty street filled with small hawker stalls lining both sides.
The chicken claw is mostly a novelty, although it does taste quite good. I enjoyed the regular chicken parts more. The stall was quite popular, too, judging from the neverending queue.
The taste and quality of this satay is about on par with the best satay in Singapore but there are a few special things to add.
There’s a bigger variety. Besides chicken, beef and mutton, there’s also rabbit and venison. And beef tripe. And chicken heart and liver — my favourite!
A chilli oil sauce is available for adding to the regular peanut sauce (you can mix and match the quantity) to spice up the taste. It’s very spicy but very good.
The price is ridiculously low for such good food. It’s RM$0.60 per stick!! That’s like 25 Singapore cents, half the price of an average Singapore satay! The rabbit and venison are priced higher, at RM$1.20 and RM$1.30, respectively, but that’s still cheap!
The stall is located in a rest stop along the Kesas Highway and we have to drive a great distance to get there and back but it’s so worth it we do it every time we go to KL.
This time round, we ordered 60 sticks for three of us and almost died trying to finish it. I only managed to eat 15 sticks! Guess how many the Goonfather ate! Haha!
4. McDonald’s Grilled Chicken Foldover
We drove up to Genting Highlands to eat this. I know it’s crazy, but the Genting version tastes so much better than the Singapore version because the bread is more crispy and there are more vegetables. And the patty is juicier. Like how KFC tastes better in Malaysia than in Singapore. Sometimes we drive to Malaysia just to eat KFC.
5. Hong Kong Milk Tea
This isn’t food and I don’t really want to talk about the tea, except to say that it’s really good.
I actually want to highlight the ice. This was at a Hong Kong style cafe called Prince Cafe in Mid Valley City.
Each glass of iced milk tea comes with a giant chunk of frozen milk tea to keep your drink cold without diluting it. How I love that because I hate my drinks getting diluted by melting ice cubes.
It was a huge chunk, too. By the time I finished my meal and my drink, the chunk still hadn’t totally melted.
I think all cold drinks in the world should be served like that!
I hope you enjoyed helping me count my calories as much as I enjoyed consuming them. =)
