love @first bite

Our quickie adventure away from Kuala Lumpur the last new days re-acquainted us with these past & present lovers.

Happily they are still 20 to 30 % less expensive than the comparable ones in the capital tho not less tasty nor less lovable.

the open air evening stall , Off Giant Manjung , Perak


local woman local meatballs in
hot soup


sweety & slighty spicy RM3
...a rare item of Indonesian origin
under-performing sidekick rated only average

Opposite the Toyota 3S along the Sitiawan-Lumut road is this rare flat & white foldable bread , a Punjabi ( Indian ) staple with its trademark brown /black charred spots. Tear the flimsy bread with your bare hands then dip into the normal curries just like you do with roti canai .

Its an efficient filler that rapidly dulls your senses to your other loves

the dangerous, rough & burning oily hot fry with cut-short yellow noodles,
in messy black sauce & chillis with tofu fritters ,
and some vegetable stalks

a typical mamak ( Indian Muslim ) offering in Seri Manjung, Perak
RM 0.80 & 3.00 respectively
bsg rated 2.9 ( of 5 )

this Peninsular Malaysian East Coast darling of firm brown rice
( which some misinformed critics say are under-cooked rejects )
with trademark tuna fish slices in thick & grainy orange curry
& pickled cucumbers, red chillis, carrots and raw onions

today no tuna so daging also can

a bsg top 10 dish

followed by the mandatory Malaysian no 1 ( ...everybody is an expert !)

inside a popular breakfast/lunch Malay restaurant in Seri Manjung
RM2.50 each

joe
yeah , we do that all da time !

nic
soon we believe you & pal nikon shud do a closer post like some jungle 150 km east of KL or maybe lake 300 km north to current really hot volatile epicenter KT ,notwithstanding the overwhelming yogic transcedental Indian Ocean near sri lanka which will then midway poise you strategically to unleash your full & final potential as a representative of the finest photo-gastronomic center in the world. That will be real awesome , Malaysia Bolih !

j2kfm
the next time call this no 012 - 324 6808 if you are in Sitiawan area for some local recommendations !
