Mr Duck Teow Cheow Porridge & Pontian Wanton Noodles @ Sri Petaling

No one can accuse Sri Petaling of lacking options for fans of Chinese rice & noodle recipes. 

Paying homage to piping-hot porridge: Mr Duck Teow Cheow serves one with sweet potato ...

... combined with briny duck & stewed pork to counter its relative blandness ...

... plus pork intestines & egg. OK for RM15, but not as flavorful as this could be.

Also on this row of eateries: Pontian Wanton Noodles.

For RM5, we get nicely firm noodles slicked up with tomato sauce ...

... & partnered with slivers of char siew & some dumplings for a simple lunch.

Mr Duck Teow Cheow & Pontian Wanton Noodles,
Jalan Radin Bagus, Sri Petaling, Kuala Lumpur.

    1. KY: ya, braised and steamed meat seems to be their specialty. didn't notice any roast duck hanging in the shop, unfortunately :D

  2. I think the stewed pork would be pretty good. I would definitely skip the intestines. :) I like the name "Mr. Duck".

    1. Ulric: ooh, i guess rice might work quite well with the braised meat. the porridge was a bit too close to tasteless for me. and ya, reasonable price for the food, but i figure most of the restaurants on this row serve fairly priced meals. too bad the parking's tricky. i have to park at the open-air lot near The Store and walk over =)

    2. Haha...my usual parking place too...hsve u tried Kanpai yet? =)

      Delete
    3. Ulric: nopes. that one too far away to walk from the parking lot, with all the construction stuff blocking it. and to be frank, i don't really have a good feeling about it, though of course i could easily be wrong, heh. ooh, there's also a japanese buffet outlet called hana-ichi on that row now, a few doors away from kanpai ... hana-ichi does daily lunches and dinners for about RM45+, and its menu looks all right, but i kinda have the suspicion that it might be value-for-money but not value-for-taste-buds =)

    4. I visited Hana-ichi last month...definitely value-for-money...not value-for-taste-buds sad to say =)

    5. Ulric: heheh, okies, thanks. maybe i'll visit it when i feel like a stuff-my-stomach japanese meal that won't cost me more than a RM50 note, yeah =)

  6. Porridge! Think I will drop by for some porridge that should be quite easy on my tummy today after a session of food poisoning.
