Restoran Aik Yuen, Off Jalan Pahang Kuala Lumpur

Once upon a post long longgg time ago ...

Ranting on.
What a let down. All the buzzing hype just led to a ‘poop’. No POW WOW or a squeak of KABOOM! A grand scale? Yeah, a notch above my eons ago Sketsa Hari Penyampaian Hadiah (For non-locally schooled, Prize Presentation Day Sketches).

Yes, talking about Mama Mia the musical (yeah yeah this is a much belated post too). Plenty of scenes with the main actors just standing around with not a memorable squawk. Put it another way, the supporting cast outshone the main characters. Read all the yappy yap high notes about the special props brought in vide humongous airplanes in the People’s Paper and what would one see? 2 partitions turning left and right for the whole duration of the show! Blah! If I have not stopped reading and believing the local papers earlier, that would had been the final straw.

Okay, maybe my opinion is in the minority since quite a large crowd lifted their bums to clap immediately when the show ended. But just maybe they can’t wait to leave, like me?
Ranting off.

Fortunately we had a lardy good dinner before show to help stomach the disappointment.
Crunchy Greens
Smooth Cantonese Noodles
Clams aka Lala. However given a choice, skip this.
Last but never ever least, Lardy Hokkien Noodles
Went Dutch with RM8 to RM10 per pax (I think).

Where else but at an old favourite
with its al-fresco kitchen
Easy to find: The corner shop is at the back of Tawakal Hospital, Jalan Pahang, right after the Pekeliling Roundabout.No supper. Lost appetite.

Haha... poor Mamma Mia! Quite a challenge to live up to the evening, especially after you kick it off with Hokkien noodles THAT good...

worldwindows said...

This place is famous for its Hokkien me and those loving in that part of the town really have it very good.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

i think it has got to do with seating in the upper circle..

their accent at times were hard to catch despite seating in the 3rd row!!! so i cant blame u for thinking that..although i thought the show was marvellous..

but wow, u got to eat hokkien mee b4 that!

Selba said...

Seriously.. when I look at the lardy hokkien noodles, my first tought is what kind of sambal (chili sauce) that is... hehehe... but then who cares about the look as long as it delicious :D

Tummythoz said...

550ml jar of faith, we were all buzzed up looking fwd to a nite to remember. Well, it was, in a way. *sigh*

worldwindows, it's known for stir fried pig intestines too.

NJoe, we did blame it on our seats a little but hey, I am more relief we did not rush for real pricey ones (that is, if I can afford it).

Nevertheless glad u enjoyed it so much.

Selba, think for certain dishes, the yuckier looking the better.

Oh Oh Oh Celeb alert Celeb alert! Oh no, how to preserve my red cheeks. Hello ideas please! I've been touched by lyrical lemongrass, hokayy!

Eerrr it's not thaaat good. Nic (KHKL) dear, a little faint will do. Die is way overdone.

Tummythoz said...

*drumming fingers waiting for backStreetGluttons*

sc, obviously u no katak. Afterall, have not noticed any insect post in your blog so far ..

cumi&ciki, err I rather eat on your behalf than bring over. Hehe.

babe_kl, yue pheng good? Thx for the tip.

Big Boys Oven, pity not so lovely for some quarters who mind sitting near roads with drains, sucking in polluted city air..

mimid3vils, actually am not sure whether this is the famous one you have in mind. Come check it out?

Life for beginners, personally I prefer my food dead quiet.

Selba, TQ for the thought but me-hor, very the lazy one-hor.

foodbin, it is lardy but I still find the 'crunchy bits' not fragrant enough.

teckiee, obscenely many. Yes, movie was thumbs+toes up. That was what made me go for the musical.
