Warung Santai, Tesco Ampang

*sigh* No questions about it. The lazy blogging bug(S) took residence in me yet again. How you frequent bloggers do it? What booster, insecticide or disinfectant come highly recommended? Guarantee no overdosing here.
Now on with food.
I am a fast fan of Mee Bandung. I crave the thick tomato-ey broth very often. Pity that although we are surrounded by many Malay roadside stalls and spruced up air-conditioned cafes, a good bowl is not easy to come by. Sad bowls come with watered down broth, measly ingredients usually with the yellow noodles retaining strong alkaline taste. YUCKS. Personally, the latter is the worst. Why don't they do like the Chinese hawkers do ie par-cook or just dip the noodles into boiling water before cooking?
After many disappointed tries, I finally found a satisfactory bowl here:-
Mee Bandung
Phitoy is a stink-o bean fan so he had to have this. Oh how I 'suffered' in the name of love! Steamed White Rice with Hot Spicy Shrimps and Petai
Hehe. A crumpled bill due to being almost forgotten in the abyss of my handbag:-
No picture but the Teh Tarik here was real frothy and fragrant.
Just in case, this Warung Santai outlet is at Tesco Ampang, along the Middle Ring Road 2 between Ampang and Pandan Indah.

We know why you love Bandung dish.
One way is to imagine BSG is impatiently waiting for you , then surely you will post more , also faster a bit. What eatin-tiside you talk about ?

Breathing into an oxygen mask, standing 5 feet away from Life for Beginners.

backStreetGluttons, no prob with eatinside. Just need booster for blogging outside.

Little Inbox, one of the reasons it's packing crowd at most time.

thenomadGourmand, quite a number of outlets around, all with good crowd.

No canto drama, just (-_-)ZZzzZz.

Pass spare oxygen mask to Cumi&Ciki.

Yalor. Missed chance to pull genuine goatee. Hope opportunity comes around again soon, Nic(KHKL).

I never have mee bandung b4, wonder how does it taste?

sc said...

i've only been to the main branch in TTDI.. mee bandung looks the same though. should be similar quality :)

Tummythoz said...

mimid3vils, try it. Spicy, prawny with a sweet tomato sauce twist.

sc, similar quality means good? No good?

Jason said...

There's a Santai in Tesco Curve too, wonder if it's under same management.

Tummythoz said...

Jason, think there are quite a number of branches around..
