Chiak Taiping Lang

Min Chi Chi was down in KL with Sien Yee and Ping CC brought us to Restoran Taiping Lang in Puchong. Never actually heard of the shop before, but when I mentioned this restaurant to Stanley, his eyes bulged and he excitedly told me that the restaurant was also featured in 8TV's Ho Chak and also Astro's Axian.

It was a near-miss place to dine that night as we were all in 101 Mall and most of the restaurants were almost closed as it was nearly 10pm.

Whoops. Truncated R.

I must say, the unexpected near-miss turns out to be pretty close to the bull's eye.

Interior is very homely. Quirky ornaments perched on some equally quirky furniture. Love the place and ambience. Crowd is getting thinner by the time and on a busy day I think the single shoplot can seat up to 60-70 people?

Antique clocks on the walls, even a miniature tiger dance costume.

RTL alternates 3 different types of menu every 2 days. Each set is enough for 2 people to dine. Ping CC finally decided on this Set A, and a few other side dishes ;) I got excited looking at the menus available. Some of my favorites, no doubt!

Oh, btw, I never knew that Taiping offers almost the same dishes as SP/Penang!

Come on out!

Kali Kay (chicken curry)
Gravy is thick and tastes pretty authentic too. Potatoes boiled soft, chicken also kinda tender. But couldn't get too excited over this one because kali kay is not one of my favorites -_-

Bak Kian (fried pork sausage nonya style).
Love this one to bits! Minced pork, and a few other key ingredients like yam bean stuffed into thin beancurd skin (I might be wrong here) and deep fried, taken with chili sauce. Syok. Tua Yee used to make killer bak kian (or we call it lor bak) but not anymore :(

Behind the heaven-sent bak kian is the Achat Hu (fried fish pickled with ginger and turmeric). The fish has to take the back seat, behind the bak kian because it lacks the oomph. I think the chef has added a tad too much vinegar into the fish, making it too sour to taste. In fact, this Achat Hu reminds me of the same dish made in Little Penang Cafe. That's too bad la, because I think if the sourness is reduced, this can take the passenger seat beside the bak kian too.

Side dish of Chai-Por Nooi (omelette with preserved radish)
This omelette we typically have it with our Teochew porridge. But the omelette is disappointingly just an omelette. Not chai-por nooi. Chai-por nooi should have more of those preserved radish that adds the crunch in your porridge.

Kiam Chai Buey (salty mixed vegetable stew)
Normally we cook kiam chai buey to settle all leftovers (especially after one of those huge dinners/steamboats that has siu yoke) in a not-so-simple stew. TPL nailed it heheheh. Best, without being too salty. Finished to the last drop.

Bee Ba Special (Belly Pork stewed with special soy sauce) - though I would call it Tau Yu Bak.
Apologies for the out of focus picture lol. Didn't know it would turn out like this otherwise I would have taken another one. But you get the picture la. Oily and greasy fatty belly pork in soy sauce. This is my favorite pick! Pork belly is tender, the stew is cukup bi. This is one more dish I would love to try cooking. Sien Yee said that it's pretty easy to make this, belly pork, boiled in water and mix with a few different types of soy sauce.

The set also comes with soup of the day (which was old cucumber that day). Soup is also good, according to my preference la at least. Oh we also ordered another side dish of Hu Pau (rofl why la they call it liddis) which is actually otak-otak or steamed fish mousse according to the Taiping Langs. No complains either with the otak-otak. Beats BibiChik hands down!

Nom nom nom.

And finally my gross-looking drink hehehehe. It's just because of the flash la but this is just the Leng-Kak-Chee Leong Fun. Min Chi Chi said it looks like frog eggs Lol.
