Restauran Ah Koong Eating House


I went out with some colleagues today for lunch. It was a farewell lunch for JW... her last day with the company will be tomorrow. Actually, I was just a filler for one of the no-shows... a girl who was on MC today.


We went to Restauran Ah Koong Eating House at Jalan Changkat Thambi Dollah, Kuala Lumpur. There are bound to be many posts on this famous eating stall. I think the last time I was there must be at least several years back. Don't normally go there as I am rather lazy to drive out, with only 1 hour lunch time... it can be rather stressful.. trying to come back to the office on time.



There were 4 of us. We ordered 2 curry and 2 soup plus extra fried fish cakes and foo chok.









It was really very yummy. One of the workers there asked me why I was taking their photos (in chinese). I told them that I was going to put them on the internet. She got rather excited about it and made an attempt to explain to her Indonesian co-workers but she was at a loss find the right word for "blogging" and "internet".

So, she turned to me to asked me how to say that in Bahasa Malaysia.... I was stumped for a minute.. Me.. the dimly lite bulb replied "naik internet"...literally translated from chinese.."go up the internet"...buahaha...

With all that plus 3 coconuts and a coca cola... the bill came up to RM50. Not too cheap but definitely a treat :)

The soup is flavourful but a tad salty. Need to drink lots of water after that :D

hehe... I think got porky.. coz for the clear soup. Coz the lady ask me if I want it on my soup. Of course I said yes.
Hehe... we wont say more.

Thanks for coming for the lunch.. save me from being grilled about the IR over and over again.
