素菇茶+金瓜与紫地瓜面(胡椒口味) Mixed Mushroom w/sweet patato & pumpkin noodle (pepper flavor) @ Simple Life at KL Pavilion Elite

28.07.2017 Lunch
@ Simple Life at KL Pavilion Elite (click to Google Map)
Pavilion Elite, 168, Jalan Raja Chulan, Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur

素菇茶+金瓜与紫地瓜面(胡椒口味) Mixed Mushroom w/sweet patato & pumpkin noodle (pepper flavor) $13.90
Thoughts: Within walking distance in Bukit Bintang, there are already 3 "Simple Life" vegetarian restaurant; one at Suria KLCC, another at Lot 10, and the latest one at Pavilion Elite opened in May 2017. I think there is one at Sunway Pyramid, Sunway Velocity, as well as Mid Valley's Garden Mall.
For lunch, instead of the menu, I ordered the "cheapest" promotion set (ie: Mixed Mushroom w/sweet patato & pumpkin noodle pepper flavor). The soup comes with a generous amount of 玉竹 yok chok (yu zhu) and 杞子 wolfberries and quite herbally taste, but covered by the peppery taste as well. Can't tell if the noodle is pumpkin-based. 
For around $20, you will get other Ala-Carte menu noodles; $25-$40 are other more elaborate meal sets which looks quite appetizing from the menu.

28.07.2017 Breakfast
@ Hawkers street at KL Jalan Mesui (click to Google Map)
(next to Menara PMI) Jalan Mesui, Kuala Lumpur, 50200 Kuala Lumpur

叉烧雲吞麵 Wan Ton Mee w/Cha Siew $6.50 
菊花茶 Chrysanthemum Tea $1.50
Thoughts: Was at Lorong Ceylon for Tosai breakfast 2 mornings ago; Jalan Mesui Hawkers stalls is around where Lorong Ceylon and Jalan Mesui meets. The prominent building here is Menara PMI and ParkRoyal Service Suits. 
There are 2 Chinese Noodles stalls here next to each other; both selling Wan Ton Mee and other noodles. This one I visit this morning offers Wan Ton Mee, Lam Mee, Pork Meat/Ball Mee, Fish Meat/Ball Mee at $6.50 (S) and $7.00 (L). While Tom Yam Mee and Seafood Mee are $9.00 (L) and $9.50 (L). 
The hawker stall also offers Tea/Coffee/Herbal Tea at $1.50-$2.00. It is managed two 2 elderly folks and a younger woman. The Won Ton Mee with Cha Siew and Wanton was OK.

马来西亚华人街头街头小吃 Street Food @ OUG Night Market (click to Google Map)

27.07.2017 Dinner
OUG Night Market (click to Google Map)
Taman OUG, 58200 Kuala Lumpur

臭豆腐 Stinky Tofu $1/pcs 
炒罗白糕加蛋 Fried Redish Cake w/Egg $5.50
客家烧饼 Hakka Pancakes $1.40/pcs
泰国猪肉串 Thai Pork Sticks $3/stick
阿榜糕 Apong $2/3pcs
苦茶 $2.80 华联药行 
Thoughts: If you are into Malaysian Street food in a "mostly" Chinese style Night Market, then OUG every Thursday night is what you need. The only thing challenging is the Parking! So, I chose to park opposite the OUG Night Market at Jalan Awan Kecil; you have to then walk across Jalan Awan Besar to the Night Market. Otherwise, you will have to try your luck looking for a parking spots along the residential areas behind OUG Night Market. 
OUG Night Market offers a variety of Chinese street food, some are for quick bites and others are a dinner meal in itself. For those hawkers who offer meals like noodles, there will usually have a few small tables for the customers. 
Opening hours: 05:30pm - midnight (Thursday)

Stop#1 臭豆腐 Stinky Tofu $1/pcs
Thoughts: Last time tried the Stinky Tofu here is Feb 16, 2017. The stall offers 4 variants (原味 Original, 起司 Cheese, 素 Vegetarian, and 软身 Soft). Both Feb 16 and tonight, I am having the original version. (next time will definitely try the other versions). In Hong Kong few weeks ago, I tried stinky tofu once in streets of MongKok; that one is definitely a little more stinkier than this one in UOG. Personally, the stinkier the better. For the original version, you can order 4,6,8,10,12 pcs all at $1/pc.

Stop#2 炒罗白糕加蛋 Fried Redish Cake w/Egg $5.50
Thoughts: with egg $5 (S) $5.50 (B) and minus $0.50 for without egg. I remember this is something I often had or try to sneak out after tuition classes at night to SS2/10 Chow Yang's Night Market before walking home to SS24. This reminds me maybe I should schedule an evening to visit Chow Yang's Night Market at SS2/10 or the other one at SS2/61. It really has been a very long time I last roam the SS2 Night Markets. There all have Fried Redish Cake hawker stalls. 
To prepare my order, the lady scoops some Radish cake cubes in that large frying plan to fry with garlic, pepper, stirring with the egg, until golden and crisp before she adds the bean sprouts. Very nice!

Stop#3 客家烧饼 Hakka Pancakes $1.40/pcs
Thoughts: The Hakka Pancakes comes in Red/Green bean, coconut, chicken floss, and Peanut flavors, all at $1.40/pcs. I like the Red bean over Chicken floss version. Eating the Red bean steaming hot is really nice.

Stop#4 泰国猪肉串 Thai Pork Sticks $3/stick
Thoughts: Not everywhere one can find Pork Sticks in Malaysia, this kind of Pork Sticks are very common on Thailand streets especially Bangkok! This one here at $3 per stick is very nice, very tender and well marinated.

Stop#5 阿榜糕 Apong $2/3pcs
Thoughts: A snack I am familiar since childhood days, the Apong. Apong is a thin crusted light weight pancake with flaky edges, that nevertheless does melts in the mouth. I remember in the 70s, it is $0.05 or $0.10 a piece; something we can buy at the wet market behind the shop lot we rented at Taman SEA in the 70s. Typical sellers are Malay vendors, but also popular among Chinese vendors. Something perhaps easily can be found in morning or night markets in residential areas.

Stop#6 苦茶 $2.80 华联药行
Thoughts: I end my food adventure tonight with a bitter herbal tea. Bean here many times during non-thursdays as well as parking is easier. There are no herbal tea shops which offer the variety in USJ like 华联药行 at OUG. Parking near the shop lots are easier on other days when the Night Market is not opened.

泰式葡鱼 Thai Style Ray Fish @ Jom Makan Place at KL Wisma UOA2

27.07.2017 Lunch
@ Jom Makan Place at KL Wisma UOA2 (click to Google Map)
19, Jalan Pinang, Kuala Lumpur, 50450 Kuala Lumpur

泰式葡鱼 Thai Style Ray Fish $14.90 
Thoughts: Last having lunch here is right after Chinese New Year on Feb 11 on 咖喱鸡云吞面 Curry Chicken Won Ton Mee. Today, I wanted to try the Thai Style Ray Fish, quite disappointed as I think the fish is really an old-old-old one from the corner of their refrigerator! I only have 2-3 pieces of it, and the rest just on the vegetables and fried egg, the Thai Style sour curry isn't my cup of tea. The set comes with a drink (herbal tea or barley) and melon. Sorry for a disappointing lunch. 
Jom Makan Place is the longest eatery at Suria Food Court in Wisma UOA2, at least 15 years if not more! may today I am just the unlucky one on an unlucky menu choice for lunch!
