On Food Hunting in PJ - SS17

DSC_0383-800 by you.

So there we were hunting for 'tai chao' nearby the university weeks ago when the parents were here. Given a choice, the chicken rice in the open air stall would always be the choice if I were to find my dinner in SS17 PJ alone. But with the family over where mum and dad's got pretty irritable bowels, sis brought us over to this corner shop opposite Jackson's, as in across the empty parking lot.

And dad started telling the stories of the years when he was studying here, the one where he came over to the burnt down cinema located on top of the parking lot 20 years ago. Good ol'days...

We ordered 4 dishes in total. Fish, pork, tofu and vegetable.

Teochew Steam Fish by you.

Teochew style steamed fish wasn't as nice as the one I had in Klang. But it was alright. Mum thought it's a bit too sour while sis thought my tastebuds were all spoiled to complain it wasn't salty enough.

Tofu by you.

Tofu was cooked in the recommended style of this shop, with some minced pork spread on top. Am a lover of tofu, so it'd be biased if I said this is nice.

Stir fry vege by you.

Stir fried vegetable was pretty so-so like how you could get in any shops outside.

BBQ Pork by you.

But the pork was... FAT. It was basically the whole front limb of perhaps a small pig. All the layers of fat underneath the crispy skin of the pork was visible. It would be amazing if anyone could take a second piece. It was pretty... disgusting towards the end.

Lily roots soup by you.

The great point of this place is, we were given a free bowl of soup. Even though it's just boiled water with some sacred lotus root inside with no other ingredients at all, but to consider it was free, one shouldn't complain more.

All in all, the dinner came up to 80bucks for 5 person. A real bargain if you ask me. :) Just that we shoulda ordered pork ribs instead....

Location: Corner shop in SS17, the next block but of the same row as Caring Pharmacy.
