Restoran Tua Huat, Sec 19 PJ (Non-Halal)

I'm back from Spain. Took lots of photos of this beautiful country; more on buildings rather than food ;o) While I sort them out, I thought I should do a posting on local food, food which I'm longing for after spending almost 2 weeks in Spain.

I had previously blogged a bit about Tua Huat but didn't take more photos as I was using a toy camera back then. They specialise in Ulu Yam Loh Mee and also Yam and Pork Rib noodles. However of late, I have been eating more of their stewed pork vermicelli (bee hoon). I had gone there recently when my friend, Lawrence, from the States requested for it as he said he can't find such noodles back there.
This is now a favourite of most of my friends that I bring to this place. We all love this deliciously sinful noodle!
Another regular order is their fried rice. Done with bits of lap cheong (waxed meat) apart from the other usual ingredients, it's good too; simple yet tasty.
The other item we normally order is the Parang Fish Cake, nice and springy-it goes well with the fried rice!

This no frills restaurant (it does look like a small town restaurant) offers these goodies at reasonable prices. Drive down SS2 road, passing Mungo Jerry on your right. Just at you reach the junction, turn left into the service road or onto the main road on the left (you can park on either side). It's further down the same row as Nanking Vegetarian Restaurant and parallel to Greenview Restaurant (which is on the right side at the junction). They open through lunch time till 9.30pm and if I can recall, are closed on Tuesdays.

Now, it's time for me to get some sleep and hopefully I can get my timing reset to Malaysian time. As much as I had enjoyed my Spain trip, there's no place like home!

I miss my bed, but most of all - I miss blogging! - wmw

Welcome back! Ah, this place. I've read they serve Ulu Yam's famous Loh Meen but not tried it at all. Must do so and compare it with the real stuff we sampled in Ulu Yam. That stewed beehoon looks good.

Welcome back! Good to hear from you again. You travel alot. No need to work one? There is nothing like home. Strange though, when I stayed 2 weeks in Malaysia and have eaten what I wanted to eat, I crave Japanese food. Malaysian food has become too oily or spicy for me.

fatboybakes said...

Wow2 said...

next time u take food photos, bring a touch light... the light will make the food look more delicious... try this technique and compare the results ok..

wmw said...

boo_licious : Feels good to be back. Do try it...I had the one in Ulu Yam itself many years ago. Have forgotten how it was.

wonda : This was a co. incentive trip. A group of us extended another week on our own covering the coastal line of Spain. We work according to our own schedule so, don't need to have our leave approved. We approve our own leave! Ha ha....

mama bok : Hang in there..."akan datang"

lyrical lemongrass : I've miss all of you too! Where else can you find good stewed pork vermicelli??

precious pea : Wait ah....be patient ;o)

fbb : Yup, time sure flies. Carpe diem! Bake when you want to bake! :o)

wow2 : Torch light you mean? I don't want to attract more attention by holding a torch light and camera, unless got assistant! Ha ha...I should use the light from SE's flash light.

kat said...

Hey! Back and refreshed from enjoying Spanish air?? So fun!!

This stewed pork beehoon - does it used those canned stewed pork ah? I've heard that it tastes out of this world!

Is this place same row as Nanking Vege Rest?

Kok said...

wmw,
Welcome back! And you almost never fail to make me crave for the food back in Malaysia. It's 12a.m. now and I was just back from Uni! I'm hungry just because of your food post! haha! Anyway, I won't have any supper. No time to do so. Going to sleep now. Looking forward for your Spain's post! Should be lots of churches. My dad told me that after his trip to Spain few months back. :)

teckiee said...

weee! tai kar che is back! LOL! can't wait for your pictures from Spain.
I see the big piece of "fei chu yoke"... so tempting to bite the screen.

Someone who is constantly craving said...

Lyrical Lemongrass said...

wmw ar, I've tasted really great stewed pork vermicelli at a makan place in the Batu Caves area. Wait ar...I blog about it one day. :-)

Kenny Mah said...

Just glad to know you're back and back in business, the business of blogging, I mean. I'm sure you had a great time in Spain and can't wait to hear all about it! :)

In the meantime, I'm developing a craving for hot (panas-panas, not spicy --- I always love spicy, hehe) foods these days cos of the rainy weather. Brrrr.....

team BSG said...

V request at least one full delicious spread post on dark sunny Spanish girls' only,
4 all yr overdue admiring male
Fan Base when u r ready,

with or without flash hahaha !

Tummythoz said...

Eh? No flamenco stuff yet?
But that pic of stewed pork bihun sure more than makes up for it! Never had that before but can already imagine d joy of sinning. Drools.

jason said...

Oh wow! Welcome back, it's great to hear from you again. Guessed you had a good time there. Btw, the mee hoon looks superb!

kat : I don't think so...I've actually tried cooking the vermicelli with the canned ones. The meat is thinner and smaller and falls apart easily. The ones here at Tua Huat are bigger slices and have more oomph! Yes, it's the same row as Nanking....I forgot about it (brain not functioning from the jet lag). Will add that in the directions. Thanks.

kok : Yup, lots of beautiful churches in Spain. Gaudi's Sagrada Familia in Barcelona was out of this world!

teckiee : Hey little sis! Yeah, wait for me to get the pics sorted out first. Meanwhile, go find something to bite into for real. hee hee...

someone who's constantly craving : Can I address you next time as someone??? :o) Mmm...are you a fan of K.D. Lang (her hit song Constant Craving)? Spain was great but there's no place like home. Thanks for the compliment.

lyrical lemongrass : Oh yeah, I have eaten one at Batu Caves before. Dunno whether it's the same one. They also have the kung po "har ko" (mantis prawn) which I like and frog porridge (which I don't eat). I find the noodle at Sec 19 better than Batu Caves, try it at both places and let me know your verdict.

kenny : Thanks for the welcome! I just satisfied my craving for Char Kway Teow last night...still missing Malaysian food, all sorts! Hey, read that you live in SS2 too unless I made a mistake?

team bsg : Ha ha ha...Sadly most of my shots are without "flash"! But the flesh industry there is big business, they are already out on the streets and soliciting at around 5 p.m.!!!!!

tummythoz : Go try the noodles and do a review. Flamenco? Wait ah....

jason : Thanks...mee hoon looks good and tastes good as well!

Xiu Long Bao said...

i always miss msian food when travelling! guess i suffered the most when studying @ aussie.

Kenny Mah said...

Yes, I live in SS2. You too? Wow, we should meet up one day for a bloggers makan-makan lah...

Keropok Man said...

wah. u must really miss blogging and visiting food blogs :-)

welcome back wmw!

wmw said...

xiu long bao : When you were in Aussieland that was for quite a while, must have been hard for you! For me, two weeks in Spain it's enough. However, being in the States isn't as bad.

Kenny : Ha ha...we'll do a crossover...litfood bloggers meet!

keropok man : Yes, miss blogging...but now missing sleep! :o)

Kenny Mah said...

That sounds great! :)

I'll email you my contacts, maybe we can gather some other bloggers too?

wmw said...

Kenny : This might have to be in May or June as April is full for me. Lotsa of work to catch up on and peppered with 8 days of training to attend. Sigh...
