A Walk Down Memory Lane

Restoran Foong Wong - This is the place where I used to have lunch (either economy rice or wantan mee) together with my coursemates during the uni days. The makan place is located strategically, just opposite the hospital (GHKL), and next to MMA building.

I miss their Char Siew Wantan Mee (叉烧云吞麵). I love their char siew wantan mee, and up to date, i still couldn't find any other stalls in KL or Penang selling better wantan mee than this place (my personal opinion lah of coz). I finally had the chance to savour my beloved wantan noodle again end of last year ( after not tasting it for almost 9 years!). I'm still lovin' it. The same person is still operating the stall (husband and wife), but he has grow much older, put on weight with more wrinkles and grey hair. What to expect? I also grow old liao over the years :P And the price of wantan mee has increased from RM2.00 during those days to RM 3.50 (in December 2006). I dunno what is the latest price.

The next morning, i took the Tungku Kai Keok Mee/Braised Chicken Feet Mushroom Noodle (冬菇鸡脚麵). Can't remember the exact price. Either RM4.00 or RM 4.50. Since I hardly get the chance to eat here, must sapu kaw kaw when I have the chance. I will come back to this stall again.. soon.. very soon...next week ! Lao hao sui liao... Slurp... hou hou sek... YEAH !

After 9 years, still going strong.. they must be dishing out super yummy wantans! Must have brought backk heaps of memories... 9 years. If it were me, I'd probably have gotten emotional, even, while tasting the food.
