Restoran Pak Lan Tom Yam
(Coordinates: 3° 8' 41.50", 101° 45' 59.50")
We try to limit our rice intake to once a day (a noble and lofty concept indeed). Since we’ve
had rice for lunch at Ibramsha
this afternoon we thought we’d have noodles for dinner. With that in mind, we
headed out to Ampang with the intention of going to Chuan Hupp
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.

|time to dig in|
|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.
