Fried Chili Balitong (Siput Sedut) and Fried Hokkien Mee (no pork), Steven’s Wok, Damansara Utama Uptown.

Last week, I went back to Steven’s Wok with three lovely ladies (Amy, Shirleen & Kath) to try out the Balitong (Siput Sedut, a type of longish shellfish, scientific name is Cerithidea obtusa) Dish. I ate Steven's ee mee on my last visit. (see the links below) After attending a conference at downtown KL, on the way back home, we decided to stop by Uptown Food Court for our dinner. I wanted Amy and Kath to try out Ah Keong Yong Tau Fu. The whole Damansara area was jammed up and I made a U turn in to the inner Damansara Utama inner roads to avoid the heavy traffic. When we reached there, we found that Ah Keong Stall was still closed. I called Ah Keong’s hand phone and his wife answered in Hokkien, ‘Wa lang tua Balai’ (we are at the police station). I had thought that Ah Keong and his wife got nabbed by the police. Then his wife said that they should reach the food court in around 20minutes time. Ha Ha, I was mistaken; they were actually stuck in the traffic jam outside the Damansara Utama Police Station. Since Ah Keong stall was not open yet, we ordered Fried Chili Balitong from Steven’s Wok. The price per plate is RM10. The Balitong was fried to perfection and I can taste the sweetness of the spicy sauce with bits of ginger in it. Thumb up for the Balitong!

The mee had generous amount of vegetable, squid and prawn in it. The black soya sauce sweetness and saltiness of the mee are just nice. Another thumb up for the Steven’s Fried Hokkien Mee without lard!

Do you know UpTown also got one very good Nasi Lemak, near Bank Rakyat, by the name of Village.

Cheap and good. For RM6, you get a quarter chicken.

cleffairy said...

Wah, Pete... you eat balitong! I can never suck that thing! So weird and the meat is so less! My husband loves balitong though!
