Post-Drinking Bites from Jalan Alor

So-Called Mongolia BBQ

Here were a couple of things that I grabbed in the vicinity of Jalan Alor tonight, the first of which was labeled "Mongolia BBQ" on those lit yellow hawker signs (are those a new thing, BTW?). It seemed more like an attempt at Xinjiang skewers rather than a bowl of Mongolian BBQ. If it was meant to be like Xinjiang skewers though, then it failed due to the lack of one critical ingredient: cumin. I probably won't get it again as a result.

Ramly Burger

I thus defaulted to that old Malaysian street food standby: a Ramly burger. This guy out on Jalan Nagasari made the beef patty inside nice and greasy, although there was so much margarine in this thing that it almost tasted like chemicals. Well, I suppose that it probably wasn't any worse for me that all of the alcohol that was consumed earlier.

Hi! i'd like to suggest a highly recommended place and old institution (3rd generation now)where the locals flock to for this TO-DIE for beef ball noodles in KL!

Soong Kee
86, Jalan Tun H.S. Lee,
50000 Kuala Lumpur
Tel: 017-2727 507
Business Hours: Opens from Mon - Sat 11am - 10:30pm. Closed on Sunday and Public Holiday.

a long time rival would be a roadside stall in Jalan Alor (Ngau Kee) but the last time i was there, there's nothing much to shout about anymore. whereas for the former, it's as good as i could rmbr when i first had it back like 10 years back. my parents used to have lunches there when they have dates :)
