    Eu-char-kueh

    ANy1 here have any idea?
    other than just on wednesday mid morn till 2?3?pm outside the magnum4D ss19/6 where else can we in SJ/USJ/PHts find freshly oily deep fried devils?

    It is so frus when i got the sudden gian to have the oily deep fried devils nicely steeped in a hot cup of kopi-o kaw...and there was none to be found here. I am too lazy to go back to my old haunt in ss2 'penang' lane...or maybe until when that gian became too unbearable...

    There used to be one van vendor (Malay boys) along USJ 9/1 until last year. They made excellent ECK and Bean buns..typically the chinese style and I used to buy..till I reckon they got chased away..sigh!
    Neigh mind lah..perhaps I should eat less..its damn oily stuff you know.. ok ok..once a while ok.. but when it taste so good, temptations get better of me.. kenot lar!

    There is one very near to you. It is right at the corner of Asia Cafe fronting Starbucks and Inti College. Heard it opens at 7am for business.There is another one which is my favourite at Taipan at the Sin Kong coffee shop. (diagonally opposite the Taipan Polis station) But it opens only mid day around 12 noon and wraps up by 4pm. Don't buy those sold by the Tong Sui shop which is next to the Taipan Maxis Centre. I don't think they make them.

    If you go to these stalls when they just open for business, you may have to wait until their caudron of oil reaches boiling point. They will also be busy rolling the dough. Go there 30 minutes later. By the way, as I am typing this, I am eating the eu char okay and the hum chim peng and not forgetting my favourite which I call it the "Chinese doughnut with pulut in the centre."

    If I'm not mistaken, the 'uncle'....told me he's there 3X a week......Wed, Thur[or is it Fri?] and Sat.....unless, he decided otherwise of late....anyway, his stuff is the best!

    Up the road, opposite 99....the malays boys who sell goreng pisang also do char-kyeh, but its not freshly fried in batches....go early, they are open around 2pm.

    Of course you guys have heard of people putting plastic (from melted plastic straws) into the oil so that the yew char kwei remains crispy despite our humid climate? I suggest the next time you leave one uneaten stick of that yck in the open and see if it will get soft eventually. If it don't get soft, I suggest you stop buying from that outlet

    So blardi far... Your petrol to n fro more than cost of ECK. Drive from Subang to Kepong is longer time than I drive to Malacca lah, ironic?

    Another urban myth or sedih tapi benar? Did someone tell me it started in that north island with lots of goody food... and by some bastardly vendors? lei sek, lei sei, lei ke see!
    Anyhow, I think ECK is the epitome of "fast to cook, good to eat" and "fast food". Therefore, right to your mouth soonest after its fried. Take home and it'll taste like cardboard. Rite or not?

    I have left USJ 9 years already but I think I was there about three years ago and it was still there....

    Go through USJ1... if I remember Giant was on the left and then Mydin and just keep on driving and there is a block of shophouses on the right where Magnum 4D, Damacai and Sports Toto outlets were located. Right smack in there is a stall outside the corner coffeeshop is the Yu Char Kuai fella - always there Saturdays and Sundays during 3pm to 6/7pm.... the coffee at the coffee shop also not too bad....

    I buy my lucky numbers here... easy parking and all three gaming outlets next to each other and then soak one or two YCK in hot Kopi O Kow Gelas and then drive home through the back come out at Metrobus area...

    Steady supply in the morning at Taipan, between the two Chinese restaurants at USJ 10/1D. Another place is at Sunway Mentari, near the corner Chinese restaurant. You can have the oily kueh with your bah kut teh at the SS14 Bah kut teh restaurants. This double fix will mess your cholesterol and uric acid levels, but worth enjoying?
