Ah Heng Food Center, Off Jalan Raja Laut

I have noticed this shack many times before since I patronise Ong Lai Goh Kee nearby. However due to the big steel pots it has I took for granted it is just another bah-kut-teh set-up. Due to that perception, I was not inclined to try as there is no customary appetizing herbal whiffs emanating from them. That and coupled with the sight of only one or two tables seen occupied usually by a few old-timers.

Disclaimer:- No insinuation meant to insult the elderly taste buds. It is strictly a personal observation that this free and easy company tends not to be too fussy with food when the intention is only to while the time away debating world issues.

Then I came across Pink Parisian’s post. Woo-hoo! *hand pump action emphasizing underarm flap Mexican waves – quite mesmerising, Itelu*

Once seated, a foreign waiter will quickly approach to rattle off a well rehearsed (albeit off-key) string of soupy or braised porky and chicken-y dishes – soy, vinegar, peppered or Chinese wine based.

2 of us lapped up our bowls of white rice with sinful fatty Braised Pork Bones (the bowl pictured in front) and a throat burning Peppery Hot Pig Stomach Soup.Ahhh .. comfort food on cool nights.

The limited number of patrons I mentioned was actually due to the fact it has 2 sitting choices – al-frescoOR in a brightly lit shop which is quite hidden from the main road.Note:- Being well-cushioned (read heavy bums) I did not change seats under the tin roof for better lighting hence the sinisterly dark pictures. (-_-)”

Bill:- RM14 in total with RM6.50 for Braised Pork Bones and RM5.00 for Peppered Pig Stomach Soup.

Location:- Diagonally opposite Citrus Hotel

j2kfm, enough to numb lips, tongue all d way down to tummy!

Njoe, not exactly an area where a well dressed office slave will simply grab a seat & enquire what's being offered. =P

sc, PJ-ian of course-lor.

jason, spare? Where got spare? *munching & gobbling before anyone else reach out for more*

team bsg, no-lar, I don't have strength to fight bodyguards for the best pieces. Times are baaaad less men more share. ;)

big boys oven, hopefully prices/serving portions maintain after the 41% fuel hike. =(

Peppered pig stomach soup, yummy, it's my favourite, provided if the pig stomach is properly cleaned up.
