Kuala Lumpur - Superb KL-style Fried Hokkien Noodles @ Kim Lian Kee (金莲记)

In Search of Otak otak

good otak otak is getting harder to find even in singapore bc alot of it is commercially made stuff, which is pretty weak compared to the real deal.

here's some places that may have it (you should probably call ahead): http://www.yelp.com/search?find_desc=...

Best roast duck and pork in Chinatown

yah its basically poached alot of places say braised but its more like poached bc they dont roast it on fire first

if you want to see what it looks done right here it is (this is ridiculously good):

unfortunately teochew food (cantonese: chiu chow, mandarin: chao zhou) is extremely difficult to find in the US. most it i find it viet areas where chinese from vietnam cook teochew food. However, if you are ever in HK, singapore or malaysia its very prevalent (also you could go to chao zhou although not sure how much there is to do there). i fell in love with teochew food when i lived in singapore, its one of my fav chinese cuisines. in fact all of my fav chinese cuisines are basically from the same area (cantonese, teochew, hokkien) all right next to each other

Best roast duck and pork in Chinatown

howdini - that duck is different than cantonese style roast duck, its teochew style lu wei duck, which is extremely difficult to find in the US but is amazing when done right. its not roasted its basically dipped in this master stock (the sauce you had). in asia the famous places will tell you that their sauce has been cooking for like 40 years bc they just leave the sauce in the pot and keep refilling it under low heat

Wei Lu 圍爐酸菜白肉火鍋 – Amazing Hot Pot in Taipei

there is a very similar thing to this in sichuan, i had it when i went to chengdu. you pick out skewers like this then dip them into a fiery oily hot pot, there is no sauce, but they did give you sesame oil to dip it in after bc its coats it to make it somewhat less spicy. it was really good

Wei Lu btw is different than this bc the hot pot is much more focused and when it comes out there is already suan cai and pork in the hot pot. the menu of what you can get is also much more limited, its really good.

klyeoh - def try it next time as i know u go to taipei sometimes

Wei Lu 圍爐酸菜白肉火鍋 – Amazing Hot Pot in Taipei

well its cooked in the same broth and then u can make different sauces. its kind of comfort food, but i find it delicious although i think the average hot place is really very similar across the board

that said, Wei Lu is much better than most places

2015 questions re: beef noodle soup in Taipei, inc. b'fast? Diagnose me!

yah the quality was really poor, i was a bit shocked, im not sure how they let it be so bad. its dumb on their part, if you had good quality niu rou mian in irvine you'd have a 1-2 line out the door everyday

Wei Lu 圍爐酸菜白肉火鍋 – Amazing Hot Pot in Taipei

yah i think hot pot is like that everywhere, in that it tends to be a bigger group social affair and i think chinese in general like big group dinners (even though i consider myself pretty amercanized, i love them haha)
