Pusat Penjaja Jalan Tiong
Jalan Tiong, Batu 3 off Jalan Ipoh

We were here yesterday patronizing Face to Face Noodles House
been reacquainted with the area we vowed to come back, and we did just that.
Jalan Tiong and its surrounding vicinity are known as the Chinese food district
of Jalan Ipoh, with a wide variety of cuisine ranging from noodles to dim sum.

Cat remembers Pusat Penjaja Jalan Tiong (or Tiong Road
Hawker Centre) to be a lively and vibrant place many years ago when Brendan was
still a toddler. Today apart from Restoran Kam Kee there is only one other
nameless food truck (as Foursquare categories these types of eateries) selling
a variety of noodle-based dishes. How times have changed.

|dinner on a grassy plain|
We were seated at table laid out on a grassy plain beside
the restaurant, and it was getting dark. We ordered the Japanese tofu cooked in
a Claypot, the Kam Heong (Stir Fried Golden Fragrance) Chicken and the Deep
Fried Pork Ribs, with a round of herbal tea for everyone.

The Kam Heong Chicken came as a surprise to us in
that it came with thick starchy gravy, unlike the drier variety we’re used to.
It was just so-so, but we quite enjoyed the Deep Fried Pork Ribs while the
Japanese Tofu was pretty average.
We like this place for that fact that we get to dine under
the stars, but where price is concerned it is borderline everyday food for the
everyday person as the total came to RM45.20, which is not bad (but we’ve had
better). We’ll be back though, as we later found out their signature dish is the
Pandan Chicken (fried chicken wrapped in screw pine leaves, which infuses the
chicken with a sweet and fragrant aroma).
