Occassionally one comes across some standout dish. Like this glaring eye popper from some strange corner somewhere. It is a kind of chicken soup but really red and can get you hot
& horny if you get carried away especially after a whirlwind beach fantasy the nights before.
On solid land after a roundabout ( end of Jln Yew ) in Jln Pudu, Kuala Lumpur inside a non-chalant shop called Hup Yick (Restaurant Fuzhou Original Fish ball ) you can order this thing (see boo-licious ) for about 5 bucks, that is if you think the famous meaty Fuzhou fish balls which you were really here for are still not enough & you need to see what's those red things the noisy table next to yours are having.After the initial apprehension at the strange dark deep colour ( sure or not ? ) it actually tastes not too bad and you can feel plenty of delicious gingery biting high flavours .
In fact you will probably love it at first mouth.
When we were here in Manjung, Perak we tried this similar but simpler version in a backStreet restaurant ( where else ? ) without the blacky & greeny Xtra things like the one in KL.
To pique our pent-up curiosity we moved behind to the kitchen to see for ourselves what V could find. Da strings unplugged ! Pure, glistening and curvilicious, the 'mee suah' or known locally here as string noodles, is a bristle and soft wheaty specialty from Kg Cina, Sitiawan & many parts of Sarawak and Johore ( so now you know where to find them good ones ! )
It used to be a cottage industry before where one can see the long sagging white strands hanging by the poles outside many houses to dry with a head and a tail each. So really there is a beginning and an ending. In fact to some connoisseurs they avoid the mee suah heads if they can !
For our next few bowls we sort of DIY to enrich our higher Xperience by adding more and more..of this one-of-a-kind-thing ( or is it cheers more and too much ? )
to get this final Red Wine ( its high baby ! ) Chicken ( make sure Kampong one )
Noodles H i g hsation of Sitiawan !
...it is bloody unique... its different ( then sommore got those Xploding post-natal tales 2...)
...go get em tigerrr (there is still hope Lyrical Lemongrass ) !
