Cheap And Tasty 'Tai Chau' Food @ Old Klang Road, KL

We had lunch at this 'tai chau' coffee shop housed in a shack located along 4 1/2 Miles at Old Klang Road KL. From the outside, the place looks really uninviting but the food is tasty and reasonable. This restaurant is famous for their 'phei phar ngap' (roast duck). We went there for lunch on a hot and sunny Sunday. Though there was a misty fan in the restaurant, I was sweating profusely and didn't quite enjoy myself. The place is not baby/toddler-friendly and if you are a health / clean freak like moi, you will not enjoy your meal there.

Here's what we had:

Phei Phar ngap (roast duck), which is the restaurant's signature dish. Almost every patron who goes there will order a roast duck.

Roast char siew and siew yoke...

Stir-fried lala with ginger and garlic....

Steamed pork ribs....

Deep fried chicken with 'nam yue' (fermented beancurd)...

Deep fried tofu, which iLike!

Steamed fish. This restaurant is also well known for its steamed fish dishes. We ordered 3 types of steamed fish!

Deep fried prawns...

Stir fried koong poh sotong...

And after lunch, hubby walked outside to a nearby roadside stall to buy mangosteens, which everyone had as dessert.

I can't recall the name of this 'tai chau' restaurant but here's the name card, written in Mandarin, which I could hardly read, except for the word 'meng' (the shop's name). This 'tai chau' is located on the same road with the Old Klang Road market.

The bill came up to RM247.20 for 10 adults and 3 kids. Pretty cheap eh?

Overall, the food is tasty (plenty of sauces, seasoning and MSG used) but I wouldn't go there again in the afternoon because of the hot weather and the restaurant isn't air-conditioned. It's also not toddler-friendly and hygiene is not up to my standard.
