Chill ‘n’ Chat at Nyonya Restaurant, Subang Parade

Filed under: Uncategorized — kpkhoo @ 9:00 am

I caught up with another old friend, Jeff Ooi, who is a well-known blogger turned politician for a chill and chat over food. We settled for a nyonya restaurant located at the ground floor of Subang Parade. From the outside, it looked cosy although it occupied only a half of shop lot space.

I generally like what we ordered, roti jala, laksa and pai tee, but I am most impressived with the laksa. The roti jala can be better served. I found the roti jala abit soggy and wet (tasted like pre-prepared and heated over oven). Overall, the food is decent although I think we have tasted better nyonya food in both Penang and Malacca. However, the price is decent and reasonable. If you crave local Penang nyonya laksa and find it a hassle to travel 400km, this restaurant may not be a bad choice.

Chill ‘n’ Chat at Hoe Kee Chicken Rice, Jonker Street

Last Friday, I was invited to visit Malacca by YB Wong Nai Chee, the Member of Parliament for Kota Melaka, for a food review and to chat a little about politics. It was a nice breezy trip down (drizzling along the way) to the cultural state of Malaysia. We started our journey from Puchong at 10.30am and arrived at Melaka Raya almost past 12.30pm.

Upon arrival I gave Wong a buzz and the ever friendly politician quickly agreed to meet up at the Mahkota Parade. I told him about my food excursion and he suggested chicken rice ball at Jonker Street.

We headed to Hoe Kee Chicken Rice Restaurant to try out the Hainanese chicken rice. My elder brother was excited at the opportunity. It was his first visit to Malacca and he had wanted to try out the famous chicken rice.

The lunch was marvelous and the host, YB Wong, was warm and friendly. We would like to thank him again for showing us around.
