That's Kampong Koh chili sauce.
Found in many Chinese coffee shops across
the country. Together with this garlic vinegar
thing, will turn a mundane noodle dish into
a gastronomical delight.
This is K Koh's version of
wantan soup ( pien neet thung, ) with the
rice sheet wrapping so fine that it literally
melts in your mouth !
One half of the 'twin noodle wonders' of
Kampong Koh. On my frequent trips to
Paradise Pangkor I will normally have a quick
stopover by this quaint roadside shop which
specialises in noodles such as this wonderful
'loomien', flat noodles in a thick brownish
gravy of bamboo shoots, cabbages,cuttlefish,
pork lard, fungus and some strange vegetables.
Very tasty and unlike the typical ' lor mee' of KL.
And great with a dash of the vinegar garlic !
Not just any wantan mee
This is the other half of the 'twin' noodle wonders
known as 'kampuang' and the equivalent of
our dear old 'kono' wantan mee in KL. Much more
than a match for Petaling Street's version, with
double the portion but many ringgits cheaper !
The above are but only a fraction of this sleepy little small town's extraordinary Foochow food heritage. Joining me for dinner ?
