Delicous Pork Noodles at Kg Baru Subang

>> Monday, April 28, 2008

As the title speaks, there's this one place which offers delicious pork noodles. Located in Kg Baru Subang, this coffee shop, by the name of Restaurant Maxis, has quite a number of stall offering a variety of food. This coffee shop is pretty easily located once you're in the area of Kg Baru Subang. You'll find both rice & noodles of your taste here & it's usually patroned by quite a good crowd.

The 'kuey teow' from this pork noodles stall is very smooth & the noodles are generally nice in texture. The soup is tasty, & I doubt it has a lot of MSG, since I don't feel thirsty at all after eating the bowl of noodles. The bowl of noodles comes with spinach instead of 'choy sum' (I think it's called Mustard Leaves in English) & is accompanied by an assortment of pig intestines, pork slices, & minced pork. The price is the standard RM3.50 for a regular bowl, but the serving is quite generous :)

If you happen to be around this area, which is after Terminal 3 in Subang, do stop by this stall for a tasty & porky meal! *lol*

Set Lunch at Supper Pub!

>> Sunday, April 27, 2008

I've never tried having lunch at a pub/bar before! Never, ever in my life! This is the first time that I've actually entered a pub in the afternoon & even sat inside for a meal. I think I can count the number of times that I've entered such a place. I generally can't stand the smell of such places & have nothing that I like to do there anyways.

It's actually Uncle Herbie's suggestion to have lunch here cos he used to patron this place during his uni days! Apparently, the set lunch used to cost on RM9.90++ then! This bar/pub (Supper Pub & Restaurant) offers a variety of Western & Asian food, & is located in New Town a.k.a. State in Petaling Jaya.

  • It's at the row of shops right behind the Telekom office,
  • It's right opposite the tall building next to MBPJ building/office (not the Menara MBPJ)
  • It's right beside Maxis centre...haha...
The set lunch that they serve here is quite alright in taste. For the price of RM14.80++, you'll get a bowl of soup of the day & a bun, a main course of either grilled chicken chop, grilled fish & chips, lamb, or beef steak, PLUS a piece of fruit, & coffee or tea! Not too bad for that price, considering the standard of living has gone up since the last time Uncle Herbie visited this place! Haha...how time flies :)

Oh ya...the only set back is that the place smells really bad of cigarettes. If you're not the type who bothers about such smell, this isn't too bad a place to have a meal.

Here are some snap shots taken of the lunch!

Mushroom soup + bun
soup is smooth, thick, & delicious, bun is warm & soft!

Chicken Chop+french fries+veggie
The sauce isn't very nice. It's like a combination of tomato sauce with chilli sauce. The chicken is quite alright, though nothing to shout about. Fries & veggie are so-so too.

Grilled Fish & Chips
The sauce is the same as the chicken chop's. The fish is slightly salty and flat in taste too. Hmm...I didn't quite like this one. A little disappointing la...

Depending on the day, I reckon, I saw them serving honeydew & watermelon. My friend got the watermelon instead!! No fair...hahaha...but this piece of honeydew is quite nice la. It's quite a good size too!

Tea to close the meal
The tea is not extremely fragrant. I believe it's one of those Boh or Lipton tea sorta tea...haha...I can't tell, but I know it's not Earl Grey! :D

Best Tong Sui

I had to blog this one! This place offers the BEST tong sui (dessert) ever! So far, I haven't come across any other place that offers such a variety of tong sui ;) Located at Section 17, Petaling Jaya, this humble stall is parked along the market street, which is a food area at night.

I call this street the 'wai sek kai' of Section 17 as it offers a good variety of food ranging from tong sui, pan mee, hakka mee, chee cheong fun, chicken rice, to roti canai, malay food, burger, & even apam! *lol* You'll be spoilt for choice since this place actually has quite a lot of tasty food! The chee cheong fun is quite famous & delicious (especially the curry gravy one), the chicken rice stall has one of the best 'pak cham kai' (steam chicken), & the Hakka mee is pretty worth eating too!

A bowl of tong sui costs RM1.40 only! It's a big bowl of dessert that you can get & you can even scoop it yourself! If you like more stuff, go ahead & take yourself...the aunty doesn't charge a different rate. If you want more 'water' & less 'fiber', you can help yourself to it. Oh, it's non-refillable, of course! But you can fill your bowl up to the brim & still have it for the same price!! ;) Good deal, right?

Here are some pics to whet your appetite & send you searching for this place!

Tong sui...what do u want?
There are red bean soup, black glutinous rice, sweet potato, bubur cha-cha, papaya & white fungus, sea coconut & white fungus, & the list goes on!!

More tong sui...
There are around 17 types of tong sui that night!! SEVENTEEN!! There are a variety of tong sui with fruits too...like apple, papaya, & lemon - just to name a few!
Sea Coconut with White Fungus & 'Moh Fa Kor' (a type of fruit)

Sea Coconut, Apple, Clear Jelly, & Lemon!
I looooove this one!! It's SO refreshing! (my mum begs to differ cos she doesn't fancy sourish dessert!). This tong sui is quite 'yun' (in Cantonese, which is generally good for health...I've no idea how to explain further) & it tastes great too!

Hakka mee
For RM3.50, you'll get quite a generous serving of noodles, cooked in Hakka style (if you're a small eater, you can opt to share this with another small eater :P). The noodles are best served dry, topped with minced pork & dried shrimp. It comes with a bowl of soup with flat meat balls. It's pretty delicious!

If you're around the area, do drop by. There will be days where the tong sui aunty may not open her stall, but don't give up trying to drop by this stall!! It's the only tong sui stall that you can find in the Section 17 market area :) There are loads of other food to eat there too!

You'll never regret knowing this food place!!

Good Deal: Pan Mee at Taman Bukit Serdang

>> Thursday, April 24, 2008

My colleague-friends & I had dinner at this 'new' place in our list. We'll usually have dinner at Equine Park or at Dengkil, but today, we patron another area, another place, & found yet another GREAT dinner place not too far away from Cyberjaya!! *whoot*

Located at Taman Bukit Serdang, this pretty large stall sells pan mee (yes, I had 2 bowls of pan mee in a day) & ramen. The bonus is that the overall is good, especially the price!!

Pan Mee in Soup (RM3.00 for regular)
Por Choy Ramen (RM3.00 for regular)

Sauna Experience in Equine Park

Anne & I had lunch together, & we ended in Equine Park, Seri Kembangan, for pan-mee. This place is actually a new coffee-shop, so we thought we'll just give it a try.

The area is rather quite, but the coffee-shop has its reasonable amount of patrons. Anne ordered the Mushroom Pan Mee (RM4.00 for large) that comes in soup, while I had the Dry Pan Mee (RM3.50 for regular). We actually had to wait for quite some time before our food was served.

The pan mee wasn't all that fantastic, although we must say that the noodles are very smooth! Apart from that fact, I didn't quite enjoy the entire dish by itself. It's lacking in texture & taste somehow... the place when we went for lunch was also kinda stuffy, but my colleague told me that they have air-condition. Sheesh...maybe they were just trying to save on the electricity consumption *shrugs*

Ah well, I reckon, it's up to each individual when it comes to food :) Go try for yourself if you're around the area & let us know what you think! ;)

The Search for Best White Coffee

I received an email from my friend, Jarod, who sent me some information on food! *delightful* Here at "The Ruthless Eaters" blogsite, we welcome any information on food with opened arms!

Here's what Jarod has to say:

Where can you get one of the best White Coffee?
--> Sun Yun Loong Rest.

Located at Jalan Bendaraha (Ask the locals, & they will be glad to tell you. This restaurant is quite famous. The picture has the road name), & surrounded by industrial factories, you would not have thought that there will be anything nice there.

The fact is that the best Ipoh WhiteCoffee is around the corner! The coffee is KAO KAO , full of aroma, not bitter and not too sweet! Many people like to flock that place for a drink. You will notice that the Original White Coffee will have a level of foam on top of it.

They also serve the best kaya bread. I've tried it before, & it was nice! According to my uncle, the boss used 3 years to earned back the money he invested in the shop! Just by selling the Ipoh White Coffee and the Kaya Bread! Geng! There are some other stalls there, but they are not as famous as the coffee.

If you're ever sleepy while you're in Ipoh, do stop by for a cup of aromatic coffee!

Cost of Ipoh White Coffee: RM1.50

That's all from my friend, Jarod :) Hope this piece of information will lead you to a good cup of Ipoh White Coffee!

Ruth goes window shopping

>> Wednesday, April 23, 2008

Yeap, I went window shopping today!! As if I didn't have much work to do in the office, eh?

In fact, I wasn't in office since yesterday cos I was at Holiday Villa, Subang Jaya, for a training by CX Management (and it was good!!...the training & friendships were good, but the food there wasn't anything to shout about, so I ain't gonna blog about it).

While waiting for my dad to finish work, I went window shopping at Subang Parade & Carrefour. There are 2 clothes shops which I would like to recommend here:

Love It, Subang Parade
This shops offers a good variety of clothes, from casual to formal. The best part is that the price is SO reasonable! Prices start from RM13.90 for a solid color tee, which I thought was quite neat :) I wanted to buy that already, but it wasn't something that I REALLY needed, so I passed :P But seriously, the shop has a good range of clothes at good prices :) Do check it out if you're at Subang Parade (2nd or 3rd floor)

I managed to get a photo of the shop!! Teehee...

What Women Want (W3), Subang Parade
This shop is situated at the ground floor, near HSL Electrical shop. The prices here are slightly higher as compared to Love It, but it offers an even larger variety of clothes, & also other items that women want i.e. make up, toiletries, nail art centre...etc. It's quite a big shop, or somewhat a 'mini departmental store' by itself :) They do have clothes around RM15 as well, but generally, their clothes are more towards the RM40-RM60 range. (didn't manage to capture any photo of this shop, but it's very easily located)

I actually saw one top that was quite nice, but it was very thin & costs RM39.90, so I passed again...hahaha...Ruth didn't bring much cash out :P

I reckon we could share with you all some shopping goodies next time when we come across any! This blog is certainly on food, but it's also on fun & adventures!

Stay tuned!!

Sunday Lunch

>> Monday, April 21, 2008

I had lunch with my church buddies on Sunday :) It has been quite some time since we had lunch together. Seriously, although we meet in church every week, we don't get to go for lunch together! Haha...most of the time, I'll join my parents for lunch :)

This time, we had a simple lunch at a coffee-shop in New Town a.k.a. "State" in Petaling Jaya. I was just too 'clever' that I didn't write down the name of the coffee-shop, so I can't remember its name now. Bummer. All I remember is that it's a corner coffee-shop with a very typical Chinese name like Kam Heong...or something like that la...lol.

The place was PACKED that day (and I reckon it's packed ALL the time during peak hours), but after waiting a while, we managed to get a table for the 5 of us friends :) We ordered different food, but here are some of the nicer looking & better tasting food:

Curry Laksa (my friend who's also a reporter for a local newspaper said that he'll give a 7.5/10 for this....not bad...)
Popiah (I had this, & I'll give a 6/10. I find the one in Chow Yang Restaurant in SS2 in still nicer)

Fish Head Noodles (my other friend gave this a 6/10 rating. It's not too bad, but he had one much better than this one...and I still think that the one in Pusat Bandar Damansara is still the best!! Find out more here)

Egg tart (I'll give this a 7.5/10 as it's pretty good, I can say...especially the egg part! Yums!)
After lunch, we adjourned to LY's new house! She's got a really pretty house & it's just great to chill at her place! *whoot*

I'm looking forward to more opportunities to explore Petaling Jaya for some good food!! *wheeee*

Ruth's Penne Ala Creme Fungi

>> Sunday, April 20, 2008

Wokay, I just have LOADS to improve on when it comes to naming a dish...ahaha...

I went into the crazee mode of wanting to cook. I had no plans for the weekend & needed something to fill up my time. Besides, I found out that there was just so much food stuff in the fridge (that needs some clearing up) & in the cupboards too!! So, here's what I managed to gather & plan out: pasta for dinner!

Oh yeah, I also managed to plan out a soup to go with it...ahaha....and besides, it's my mum's birthday on the 22nd of April, so I thought I'll make this a special treat for her as well (I haven't been cooking up a storm for a long time!)

NOTE: All recipes (measurements & directions) by Ruth may not be accurate cos Ruth doesn't adhere to such measurements...she goes by 'feel' & 'taste'.

Penne ala Creme Fungi - serves 5

300g penne
1 jar (650ml, I think) of Dolmio Mushrooms & Herbs white sauce
1 can button mushrooms, sliced (chop some up for a more chunky pasta feel)
1 can abalone mushrooms, sliced
3 sausages, sliced
1 tbsp of chopped garlic
1 1/2 tbsp of mixed Italian herbs
1 tbsp of ground black pepper
1 slice of cheddar cheese
Cooking oil
Salt & pepper to taste

The ingredients for the pasta
  1. Cook pasta as per directions on the packet.
  2. Remove pasta from pot, drain, & place into a big bowl.
  3. Add a little bit of butter into pasta & mix well to avoid pasta from sticking together. Add 1tsp of mixed Italian Herbs & mix the herbs well with the pasta (makes pasta more fragrant). Leave the pasta one side.
  4. Heat up sauce pan/wok. When the pan is heated up, add 1tbsp of cooking oil into pan.
  5. As the oil heats up, add in garlic & fry 'til fragrant.
  6. Add in the sausages & fry them until slightly brown (nicely brown).
  7. Remove garlic & sausages from pan & leave aside.
  8. Add 1tbsp of cooking oil, & add the chopped button mushrooms, followed by the sliced button mushrooms & sliced abalone mushrooms.
  9. Stir-fry the mushroom for about 2 minutes.
  10. Add in the Dolmio Mushrooms & Herbs white sauce into the pan/wok & mix it well with the mushrooms.
  11. Add the ground black pepper & mixed Italian herbs into the sauce, stirring it for 2-3 minutes.
  12. Leave the sauce to boil.
  13. Optional: Add 1 slice of cheddar cheese into the sauce (to give it a more "cheesy" taste), & leave to cook for another 2 minutes.
  14. Turn off flame & the sauce is ready!
  15. Scoop penne onto plate, then scoop one ladle-full of sauce onto the penne. Top the pasta with the fried sausages & serve!

Penne ala Creme Fungi with garlic bread for the borscht

Everybody in the family had a complete set meal for dinner!

Ruth's Borscht with "Chinese-touch" (tomato paste-based vegetable soup) - serves 5

1 medium Cabbage, cut (I used Chinese cabbage cos I didn't have cabbage in my house)
3 medium Carrots, cut horizontally/round (Ruth's style is lenth-wise)
2 medium Tomatoes, cut
1 tbsp chopped garlic
1/2 medium bottle of ketchup (if u can add tomato paste of some sort, it'll be nicer)
Salt, sugar, pepper powder to taste

Note: This style of cooking is to have the veggie cook faster & softer. The conventional style of cooking soup is to boil the water first before adding the ingredients.
  1. Heat up wok & put in 1tbsp of cooking oil.
  2. Add chopped garlic & fry 'til fragrant.
  3. Add the carrots & stir-fry for 2 minutes/'til it's slightly softer.
  4. Add in cabbage & continue to fry for another 2 minutes.
  5. Add tomatoes into the wok & mix the ingredients together, frying it for a 2-3 minutes.
  6. Pour 6 rice-bowls of water one after another into the wok.
  7. Allow the soup to boil.
  8. As the soup begins to boil, turn the flame lower & add the tomato sauce/pasta/puree, stirring it into the soup.
  9. Add in salt, sugar, & pepper to taste, according to individual preference.
  10. Leave the soup to boil.
  11. Turn off flame & the borscht is ready to be served!

Ingredients for Ruth's Borscht
My sister & I also made some honeydew pudding as the 'cake' for my mum. We found 1 packet of this in the house, so we happily used it :P Can't remember what's the brand of the pudding, but it's relatively easy to make- just follow the directions on the packet itself! :P

Cooking the pudding

The pudding 'cake' for my mum! (my sister made that little banner!!)

I had a GREAT time preparing the meal & I'm so proud of myself!! *lol* It's just nice to cook a meal for my family, especially my parents who've been working hard :)

Coming up, more food, more fun!!

Beef-flavored Ramen anyone?

Ahah! I haven't cooked such 'pretty' ramen for a LOOOONG time! The first & last time I recall cooking such ramen was... a year ago!! Sheesh...it felt like THREE years ago...bleagh...

This time, I had this beef-flavored soup ramen, which I also found in the cupboard at home...ahaha..I've no idea who bought it (and I can't be bothered anyways), so I happily helped myself to it & made my sister one too! Woohoo!

Here's presenting to you, Ruth's "Fwawer" Beef Ramen!!

Nice le... I HAD to make it look nice... if not, I'll be very disappointed with myself...hahaha...for me, if the food looks good, it'll make me feel good, & thus I'll be happy to taste it :P First impression counts!

Ah...it was a good lunch that we had...hehe...

So, anyone for Ruth's "Fwawer" Beef Ramen? (gave it such a name cos the arrangement of the sausages reminds me of the flower...heh) :P

A Lesson on Can Openers

A lesson on can openers??

You must have thought that Ruth has gone nuts. Well, she has always been 'siao' (crazy), but this is the one time that I really feel like I'm back in the stone-age. Bah.

All I had to open my 'square-ish' can of luncheon meat was this:
It's an OLD-FASHION CAN OPENER!! I found it in the kitchen & I've NO whatsoever idea on how to use this can opener!! All along, I've only used these:

It took me almost 15minutes to open the tin of luncheon meat with that old fashion can opener, & even after that period of time, I wasn't successful. My roomie & housemate had no luck either.

We resorted to using a bottle to hit the sharp part of the can opener into the tin!! Bummer! Like some stone-age person le!! *argh* (Anne, this is not my first time doing this stone-age thing! I've done it in uni once!!)

Anyways, after half an hour of struggling, I was about to give up on opening the can. Here's how my can looked like:

Super 'cacat' (mutated) looking man...

I still couldn't remove the luncheon meat from the tin with that sort of opening. Argh!!

I was about to give up until I remember that there was some strange looking 'key' that came with the can, supposedly to help open the can, but I didn't use it (cos I've no idea how to use it!!). The key opened my can of luncheon meat perfectly!!!

Tadaaa!! (just roll the little bit of tin around the 'key' as you wind it) Awesome invention?? -made in China! *lol*
I'm SO gonna make sure I have a delicious breakfast of luncheon meat tomorrow! After all the madness in opening the can...ergh...lesson learnt: bring the NORMAL can opener to Cyberjaya!

So, have you learnt an important lessson on can opening with The Ruthless Eaters?? ;P
