Soon as we got there, Cat noticed a row of Tom Yam stalls opposite in the general vicinity of Chuan Hupp, and I sudden had a craving for sup ekor (oxtail soup). We abandoned our plans and went in the direction of the stalls, and settled on the first Tom Yam stall we found.

This is a pretty 'colourful' stall in terms of personnel, in that the waiters and cooks were made up of entirely ‘effeminate’ males (for the want of a better description).
|we were 'sweetly' served|
|... and a sweet dessert!|
We proceeded to order a bowl of Sup Ekor (oxtail soup usually cooked with a fragrant combination of dried spices and fresh herbs), a plate of Ayam Padprik (stir fried chicken done in chilli paste mixed with oyster sauce, originally a Siamese dish), a plate of Kailan Ikan Masin (stir fried Chinese broccoli, with oyster sauce and salted fish - usually king mackerel fish steak preserved in salt) and an omelette each.

|hey, they didn't wait for moi!|
To be perfectly honest, the dishes were just ma-ma (so-so) and we’ve had better Sup Ekor and Ayam Padprik elsewhere. Oh well, this gives us a good excuse to head to Seri Gombak next weekend to patronize our favourite Tom Yam joint. Stay tuned!
*In hindsight, with the coming of Ramadan, I guess we have to put our plans to visit our favourite Tom Yam joint on hold.
