Chinese Style Snacks at KTZ, SS2

Nowadays you can find many restaurants in Malaysia that specialise in selling what can probably be called Chinese style snacks. They're usually dishes of small servings and they're usually pretty expensive. I think the pioneer of this concept may be KTZ whose original branch is actually a road side stall in Kepong called Kei Tak Sek (translation: Remember To Eat). From their humble beginnings they've expanded to several places in KL including OUG, Imbi and SS2. KTZ is also famous for their Sai Mai Loh which is basically shaved iced with fruits.

The other day me and ST went to their SS2 branch to have some dinner time snacks.

Shanghai Sticky Rice (RM2.60). This is something you often hear about in TVB serials. It's steamed glutinous rice with chicken floss fillings. It was quite plain and they were very stingy with the chicken floss.

Baked Stuffed Crab Shell (RM3.50). I'm not sure if there was any crab in this but the generic meat stuffing (generic because it tastes as you would expect it to but I coudn't make out what meat was used as the stuffing) didn't taste bad. The crab shell is really nothing more than a gimmick.

Mango Loh (RM5.50) and Kiwi Loh (Rm5.50). What happens in a Sai Mai Loh is they put lots of shaved ice into a bowl, pour some fruit puree plus generous helpings of sago onto it and decorate it with fruit slices matching the puree. The Mango Loh is always a good choice. My Kiwi Loh wasn't bad except that the Kiwi was way too unripe. It was sour and tough.

I think the Kepong branch is still the best. You can find it in Kepong's Wai Sek Kai (translation: Craving to Eat Street - a Cantonese term for a street with lots of food stalls).
