Tua Thow Kueh Teow Soup (大头果条烫)

Kueh Teow Soup from Tua Thow (Big Head) in hokkien.
Is another kind of soup broth that is cooked with various type of seafood. Here this Kueh Teow Soup is a bit different from my last blog Ah Hwa Kueh Teow Soup.
here their signature is their Seafood. Fresh Fish Meat, Fish Maw, Fresh clam thats why when you are eating here. Always ask for the Medium or Large size of the Kueh Tiao. The bigger size not only big on the quantity of kueh teow but it also give you more variety of dishes in the soup.

though this is not my favorite, i would give it 3.5 star for the taste of it. it is still a nice lunch you could have. the only flaw is their shop drinks service is bad (not enough waiter cos 1 person working only) and it's hot enviroment. do try to go there only on cooler weather. else i bet you will get yourself wet on a hot sunny day!

2nd generation of Delicious Rojak from Penang (Johor Jaya Jalan Seroja 12)

Mr Goh's Rojaks 
This small stall under the shades of tree is selling one of Malaysia's all time favorite's Tea time Desserts. ROJAK. but it will be eye catching in the afternoon with the continuous patron over the stall. The patrons will more often buy more than 1 packets of rojaks. Of course to bring it back to office to share with colleague (good Malaysian Culture)

Rojak is a desserts with mixture of many small pieces variety of fruits and in addition of Special 'Hei Koh' (Black prawn paste) give a touch of perfection to this dessert.
Local will always heard of rojak joke such as Bahasa Rojak, Rojak knowledge. Rojak in this kind of event will be defined as 'Mixed; Variety'. So you can now imagine that how Rojak is Mixture of variety fruits.

Whats makes this rojak so special?

  1. it's well prepared Hei Koh sauce has strong sweet prawn smell. 
  2. 'chef' is a good fruits picker. it's fruits is sweet and fresh. 
  3. a good variety of fruits. one of my enjoying moment is guessing types of fruit by using my tongue. it is unusual for a rojaks to use too many types fruit. they had use cempedak, jambu air, pineapple, timun, guava and a hell lot more that i cant possibly remember all. it is so enjoyable like opening gift box on birthday. No joke man! 
not sure when is their off day. but they seldom failed my wish. they are always open on afternoon and even on weekend.

They are now on their second generation of selling rojaks. we need to give more support to them for them to stay survive by eating more rojaks. such good authentic food is now very very hard to find anymore. as it is not lucrative as opening shops.

Ah Hua Kueh Teow Soup (Tmn Century Branch)

So sorry for not updating my blog for the past 1 month. mainly is due to i am busy for my biggest day of my life (Wedding). after 1 month of busy now life has goes back to normal. now can start back to my Spicy Johor Sharing site. Cheers!

Okay back to the main title, this Ah Hua Kueh Teow is a new branch in Tmn Century nearby KSL City. its old shop is located in plentong. a lots of JB ppl had eaten before in this old shop. I happen to found it while looking for food after shopping in KSL City. Ah Hua is an family business. this shop is opened by another sibling of their family business. Better ambiance from the old shop, temperature is Better (Old shop is just too hot sometimes when we are having lunch).

Their main dish is selling Kueh Teow soup with pork and with port liver, and pork skin. So what is so special?

  • 1st thing that is special is it's smooth and tasty Kueh Teow. Kueh teow soup must come with tasty Kueh Teow right!? well they have it. 
  • Soup - Tasty soup that is strong with sweet pork bone taste. 1 thing that i am surprisingly disappoint is it's soup is not as hot as it should be. of course it is a hot soup. i would personally prefer it is VERY hot type with lots of smoke coming out of it. 
  •  Pork Liver - They had the skill to cook the Liver to perfection. A overcooked liver will be too Powdery.. it feels like you are biting a wet cookies. an undercooked liver will taste too bloodied.. but a perfectly cooked liver will taste juicy and tasty! I must say that not many people has the skill to do that. Bravo!
  • others such as pork meat, pork skin is good too. 
Lastly you will need to know how to eat. you must try their Dry Kueh Teow - then ask them to add vinegar and their red sweet spicy paste. that will do the job you will definitely be happy with your meal! Cheers!
