Tong Yat Sum

A half eaten bowl of mini tong yun in ginger sweet soup at MYR 8.70 nett. My friends wanted the normal sized glutinous rice balls with fillings in ginger sweet soup but I ordered the wrong one for them.

Tong Yat Sum is a play on words. Tong is sugar and sounds like together. Yat Sum is one heart. So this sweet soup (Tong Sui) eatery has a name that could mean Together with one heart or Sugar one heart.

The kiosk at the top floor of Midvalley Mall, same floor as Mr DIY.

The seats/ open dining area is opposite the kiosk. Don't think I will eat here again as for this price, I could almost eat a slice of cake at SR.

WG Five Fingers

My friend recommends this vegetarian eatery near Atria Mall, PJ to us.

Cantonese style Yee Mee at MYR 11.90 nett. It has a lot of Napa Cabbage.

Nyonya Curry Laksa at MYR 11.90 nett. I took a sip of the curry broth and it was too salty for me.

My order: Ten grain Lo Mai Fan at MYR 6.90 nett and fresh sour sop drink at MYR 7.90 nett. I find the Lo Mai Fan easy to eat because it is very soft. This ten grain Lo Mai Fan is also sold at the Frozen section of the grocery part of this shop.

Simmered ginger with black vinegar rice at MYR 13.90 nett. This dish contains half a hard boiled egg. The ginger is very "lat" (hot and zesty).

Rice meals section of the menu.

I ordered one item from this section of the menu.

 Noodle meals section of the menu. They also serve vegetarian economy rice dishes selection (chap fan).

MYR 53.50 nett for 4 pax.

7 gathers

Pork neck salad - MYR 19+ (6% SST = MYR 20.14 nett). My friend likes the texture of the pork neck slices.

Seafood Tom Yum Clear Soup - MYR 29.91+ (MYR 31.70 nett). Sourish which is appetising but a bit on the salty end.

Mango salad - MYR 16+ (MYR 16.96 nett) which is very appetising and a portion of plain rice at MYR 3+ (MYR 3.18 nett).

Stirfry 3 types of mushrooms at MYR 19+ (MYR 20.14 nett) for mushroom lovers.

Pineapple fried rice at MYR 19+ (MYR 20.14 nett). There are cashew nuts, pork rind crackers, prawns in the rice but no pineapples. Wonder if they mistakenly left the pineapples out.

Siu Yuk fried rice at MYR 19+ (MYR 20.14 nett). The siu yuk rind is crispy but some may find the meat to be on the dry side.

MYR 145.65 nett for 7 pax  at Thai Hou Sek, One Utama as we only ordered 1 drink. Seems like they revamped their menu recently.

Desserts from Chateraise, One Utama during tea time.

Niu Niu Kulai Beef Noodle

The menu - 5 types of noodle, soup or dry.

All beef products

Oink Oink noodles

The story behind Niu Niu.


Exterior - Niu Niu Kulai Beef Noodle House at OUG. Their stall at Swee Hing coffee shop, Sri Petaling is no longer operating. Not sure why they decided to pull out from Swee Hing.

3 types: Handmade beef balls - very tasty because they put some herbs inside to balance the strong beef taste (2 x MYR 1.5 each so is MYR 3); beef meat balls (2 x MYR 1 each so is MYR 2) and beef tendon balls (2 x MYR 1 each so is MYR 2). Must buy a minimum of 2 meat balls so the 6 meat balls here cost MYR 7 nett.

Takeaways to eat at home: Soup beef hor fun mixed with mee hoon with beef shank, beef tendon and raw slices of beef which is more expensive so the price is MYR 10.50 nett.

Takeaways to eat at home: Dry beef lai fun noodle with beef shank, beef tendon and tripe (beef stomach) at MYR 9.50 nett so two packets of beef noodles with 6 beef balls cost MYR 27 nett. Next time we will dine in whenever we feel like eating beef noodles.

Two days in a row

Mee Rebus at MYR 15.21 nett (after 5% discount with member card) at Medifoods, SS2 PJ. I chose mee hoon and my friend could not accept the thought of eating mee hoon as mee rebus. The ingredients seem to be the same as Lontong, Medifoods but the broth is very different. This broth is a bit on the sweet side.

I also bought Rainbows Sprouted Bread 7 Grains.

The next day, we went to Chow Yang Kopitiam where I ordered mee rebus again with yellow noodles thiis time at MYR 6.50 nett and one coconut juice at MYR 5.50 nett.
