Fish Ball Noodles @ Restoran Okay, SS2

Who loves fish balls? I do! I've had people tell me that fish balls are cheap stuff and not worth the money but to me it's not so much the price that matters rather it's whether we like it or not. It's as simple as that.

Fans of fish ball noodles might remember this place in Jalan Yap Ah Shak that's been closed a few years (refer here). Many people are really nostalgic about this place and so it's with delight that I announce that the fishball place has been reborn somewhat as a small stall in SS2.

The location is at Restoran Okay in SS2 at the opposite end of the same row of shops which Kayu Nasi Kandar is at.

As it's a small stall they don't quite sell the breadth of the varieties that they used to sell at their original stall. Also, the stall is currently being manned (I think) by the original owner's sister and not the original owner himself.

So what can you get here? There are the noodle of course. You can accompany your noodles with fishballs, taufu pok and some braised pork.

Personally I very much prefer the dry version of the noodles and I suspect most people will too. I have very good memories of the food at the original Yap Ah Shak place and I must say the SS2 branch is just as good as I remember.

The standout good food IMHO isn't the fish balls though, it's the taufu pok which is soaked in the braised pork gravy. If you're a fan of the taufu pok in BKTs I think you'll love this too.

So where did the original Yap Ah Shak place go to? From what I gather, they've been closed for at least 3 years. Stay tuned to wAntAn productions for the answer because I recently found them!

Special mention also goes to the chee cheong fun stall at the same place. Pretty good and reasonably cheap.

Hing Ho's Full Moon Party @ Coca Cabana

Regular readers will know I have a daughter named Kit Yi. Now I introduce to you my son Hing Ho :) So as you may have noticed Hing Ho was born slightly over a month ago but I was so busy with his birth and work (among other reasons) that I had to neglect this blog.

The full moon party was held on the 17th of October 2009 at my father in law's place; the Coca Cabana at Segambut.

If there's one thing my father in law is famous for it's his lamb chops. This time around he also barbecued a whole lamb. He couldn't get a good lamb for the party due to everyone wanting one for all the Raya and Deepavali celebrations going on all around. In fact he had to bribe one of the caterers to sell the one we got to him.

But truly the star dish of the night are the lamb chops. Marinated in my father in law's special secret sauce I guarantee this to be the best lamb in Segambut at the very least. Contact me if you want to book some of these delicious goodies.

As Kit Yi's birthday is mere days away and since there were lots of children around it was the perfect opportunity to get everyone together to do an early birthday celebration. Kit Yi enjoyed everyone singing the birthday song for her and she was really happy to blow the candles.

After the dinner some of us went into the pub for some karaoke session, including Kit Yi who had a really good time :)

Thanks to everyone who attended and even those who couldn't make it. Really appreciate it.
