Hooray that we had survived months of staying and working from home. I enjoyed experimenting homecooked food, but still, the cravings for outside food is real. Now, that we are in RMCO phase, I can happily get all these 8 foods which I’ve been craving for months. Not forgetting, to exercise personal hygiene and practice social distancing.
1. Wan Tan Mee
Believe it or not, this tops my list. Not really a fan of Wan Tan Mee but the cravings are real specially to get the ones at PJ New Town. Available for takeaway only, be sure to go there early before it sells out.
2. Chicken Rice
While I can make Hainanese Chicken Rice, but still I opt for the fragrant, silky roasted chicken and its steamed chicken.
3. Chee Cheong Fun
Nothing beats a plate of chee cheong fun that comes with rice noodle roll and fu chuk. Topped with your favorite ingredients like okra, fish balls, sausages and fish cake, this makes a perfect meal to kickstart your day.
4. Asam Laksa
Why not go for a bowl of asam laksa? Sweet and sour taste that is served in a tangy fish broth which is set to tantalize your taste buds.
5. Char Kuey Teow
Imagine a plate of char kuey teow that is filled with wok-hei and topped with abundance of bean sprouts and cockles – sometimes, it comes with slices of Chinese sausage too. It just reminds me of the famous Char Kuey Teow in Taman Melawis, Klang and Penang.
6. Fried Chee Cheong Fun
Heard of it? I tried it once and I have fallen in love to it. Introduced by my friend to Soon Kee Restaurant in Setia Alam, one of the signature dishes that you must try is Fried Chee Cheong Fun which is loaded with preserved radish (chai po).
Wish to have a mouthful of vege but not sure what is it? Just go for popiah that is filled with shredded vegetables from yam bean, turnip, bean curd, fried shallots and Chinese sausages.
8. Nasi Lemak Bungkus
Yes, that we can get nasi lemak everywhere but somehow, the joy of having a small packet of nasi lemak bungkus between RM 1.00 - RM 1.50 is the one that meant a lot. Go to the nearest coffee shops / kopitiam and get one today.
If you are unsure of what to have tonight, head out and enjoy the local food from the hawker stalls. Go and support them as they are now open for business.
