Many years ago, when we were still dating, we used to go to Petaling Street pretty often. That’s because Hon’s office is downtown, and we like to kill time by going dinner and whatever lah, instead of stuck in the traffic jam. Actually find excuse to be together longer mah :P.
We enjoy the famous Ikan Bakar @ Petaling Street. You will definitely not miss this one as it’s just beside the famous Mata Kuching Drinks stall.
But ever since we got married, I’ve not tasted it!! Yes, as far as I recall, I’ve not eaten this for almost 8 years!!
A few nights before CNY, Sue and myself decided to take a drive to Petaling Street. Our mission:
1. buy some twirled bamboo for CNY
2. eat the food that we’ve not been eating. When you have kids, you gotta change your menu as well. So when chances like this comes along, we will usually go all out spicy food!!
Our first stop, assam laksa. We could smell it the moment we came out of Pak Ping building!!
Since we are so greedy, we decided to share 1 bowl of assam laksa, so that we can eat other stuff later LOL.
Next stop, Ikan Bakar. This stall has not changed since 8 years ago. You just go there, tell them what you want, the boss will say, “come back 30mins later”
So we placed our order:
1. Ikan Bakar
2. Sotong with ladies fingers, bakar also!!
We went shopping, 30mins later come back. Sat on one of the table, and our dinner were served.
It’s amazing how they can remember the order, even without us prompting!!
It still taste like before. Super spicy, super yummy!!
And guess what, it only cost us RM16, inclusive of 2 rice!! Very worth it lah. Where else can find such good food at a fraction of price in KL!!
These 2 dishes, goes down very well with the Mata Kuching Drink hehe…
As I’m writing this post, I can feel my saliva dripping. What about you?
Lets hope I don’t get some acne popping over to visit me after this spicy dish :).
