One of my favorite 'tai chau' restaurants is New Paris Restaurant in SS2 PJ. This restaurant (called 'Par Lai' in Cantonese) used to be housed at a dilapidated zinc roof old shack in PJ (next to the Jasmine Towers). The dishes were very tasty and cheap and business has always been incredibly good. I still remember seeing cages full of really HUGE tin kai (toads) at the road side, waiting to be slaughtered and put on the tables.
Apart from the famous tin kai dishes, these are some of the popular dishes among diners, which we had:
Claypot tofu with fresh mushrooms...
Stir fried veggie...
Watermelon Chicken... you will notice that this dish is on practically every table!
Phai kuat wong (deep fried pork ribs in sweet and sour sauce)...
Stir fried tin kai (toad) with ginger and spring onions...

After lunch at Paris, we had cendol for dessert.
We stopped our car by the roadside at S17 to get cendol from this Indian man who sells cendol and rojak on his van.
It's a common sight to see a long bee line at the roadside next to this van...
The cendol was nice but the rojak was just so-so. Nothing beats the Pasembur Indian rojak from Penang. I so miss Pasembur!
