Petaling Street, KL's Chinatown. Surprisingly small & narrow.
But no less busy, colorful & bright with a sharp noisy concentration of petty Chinese ( now Burmese/Indon) traders peddling everything and anything under the greeny ( leaking ) canopy that you never thought you ever really need,
....but still must see & try ....to believe.
A handicraft, souvenir, wet market, fruit, food, ( what else ?), imitation goods and copyright pain-in-da a** bargain-hunting bazaar and
...must-recommend-to-foreigners tourist hotspot.
Another must-try !
Famous Hon Kee porridge.
Clear overboiled rice in water + seasonings +Xtras.
Not Teowchew (salted this salted that mixed fish/meats/veges/eggs) style, ....that is different.
Watch da crowd !
Seniors mostly ? Becoz no need to bite ? Becoz gentle on tummy ?
You might have a point !
But not really because on normal mornings thousands (including kids) will jostle for limited cramped seats to try this one.
Version 1...of century egg slices (uniquely strong & dark pungently alkaline preserved chicken/duck eggs, aka authentic but not proven Chinese aphrodisiac ).
Tasty but piping hot ( danger ! ) so slow down...
Versions 2 (crispy fried pork body parts ), 3 (raw fish slices) & 4 ( chicken meats ),
....all in mixture of fresh ginger slices and springy onion leaf bits + Chinese secret sauce,
you may add Sarawak pepper + non-secret Chinese soya sauce according to personal preferences.
Unspicy, pungently fragrant free and
suitable for even the sick.
Try it soon...
