When North Meets South

When Jian came from Penang for few days holiday, I planned to have dinner with her and Durianberry at Jalan Alor. But unbeknownst to them, I also texted a few floggers to join the dinner too.

And so I first met up with the girls at Pavilion. Then I left them at Starhill Gallery and went to Wong Ah Wah to met up with Citygal and wait for the rest to arrive. Tankiasu joined us not long after that.

As usual, we had the highly recommended barbequed chicken wings which still retain it’s quality. Smoky, slightly sticky, caramelised skin and juicy meat. I wonder what Jian think about this.You know, there might be a better one in Penang than Wong Ah Wah.

Wong Ah Wah also serves one of the better satay, it’s my must-order item whenever I come here. The chicken meat were tender, well marinated, perfectly grilled and goes well even without the accompanied peanut sauce.

As we planned to go for second round, we decided not to order too much here. So we had the roast pork noodle which is a bit oily but nevertheless, it’s quite good. The roast pork were first stir-fried with garlic and then serve on a bed of dry wantan noodle, choy sum and sprinkled with chopped spring onion. Tankiasu, however commented that it’s just mediocre.

We proceed to Tengkat Tong Shin after that, and we saw Man Sook’s stall was open, so we decided to give it a try. Man Sook as in Chinese means “slow uncle” and most of the floggers nicknamed him that because he cooks slowly. Which is true because we almost end up waited for about 45 minutes for the food to arrive.

So, while waiting, we took pictures. Just look at the fire sparks created from the high pressure stove. Took this with slow shutter speed, hence the sparks looks like red threads.

As the place we sat was really dark, our pictures became as dark as the surroundings. And we don’t feel like flashing our poor food with flashes, so Citygal helped to use his phone flashlight as light source for us (thank you~). The friend min sin although laden with prawns, sliced cabbage, bean sprouts and egg, it doesn’t have sufficient the so-called breath of wok.

Same goes for the fried kueytiaw. I personally found it tastes ok, the rest found it not salty enough and Jian said that it’s very salty. O.O Clashing of tastebuds?

Although there are some hit and misses, it’s still good to meet the girls a year later (the first time I met Jian & Durianberry was last year after the first inaugural floggers meeting at Sandias). Maybe for the third time meeting, it will be in Penang!
