Lat Tali Lat & Ho Li Chow @ Damansara Kim

This winsome new neighbourhood cafe founded by friends Joanne (she manages stuff) & Li May (she cooks stuff) infuses a homey, personal touch into its setting & food - Papa Yong's Spaghetti Bolognese (RM17.90) strives to replicate the pleasures of a pasta that Li May's father relished on a trip to Switzerland in 1975, while the GNS (RM10.50; a glass noodle salad) is a nod to the northern Thai heritage of the chef's mom. Fresh, no-fuss flavours, washed down with lemongrass tea & cha yen.

73 Jalan SS 20/11, Damansara Kim, Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Lunch & dinner, Wed-Mon. Tel: 03-7733-7373






Kitchen commandant Aunty Sue, whose family hails from Penang, keeps a steady watch over Ho Li Chow's Malaysian comfort-fare offerings; the selection is compact, but everything's worth sampling, from the rich, hearty lam mee (RM10) to the assam laksa, enjoyably tasty though more mellow than Air Itam's (RM7), to the firm, fairly fragrant nasi lemak (RM10 with tender pork curry & chicken). On Saturdays, household-recipe specials such as painstakingly prepared acar fish are available; Ho Li Chow is becoming a popular neighbourhood kopitiam, & its menu is expected to expand over time (siu yuk & duck rice?).

  1. I like the name.... Lat Tali Lat reminds me of the childhood game we used to play. Decor is very cheery too :)

  2. It looks like they're trying to invoke our childhood memories with the cafe's name and iced gems ;) I think I can contribute to Auntie Daisy's retirement fund if it's for a Sam Smith concert! ^_* And that bowl of lam mee seems very different to the ones I know.

    1. Contact.ewew: my childhood was so long ago that it's almost in-invokeable now, heh! :) I wanna go see Sam too! :D ooo, it's meant to be a more Penang or nyonya-style lam mee, I think - but I don't really know, cos I don't know lam mee very well, heh ;)

  3. I take it that the ""Lat Tali Lat" comes from "Lat Tali Lat Tampong" hee..hee... Looks like quiet a cosy place. Those little gem biscuits remind me of my kindergarten days where I bit off the icing and eat that first much to the distress of the nuns.

    Ho Li Chow's fare look pretty good too. I would go for the nasi lemak. Very near my place, I'll go check it out.

  5. Kopi O and the biscuits (in Lat Tali Lat) are definitely part of everyone's childhood! Seeing that reminds me of the time spent in the country towns. Omg, siu yuk and duck rice are the tastiest!

    1. Rebecca: heh, i actually didn't taste the laksa myself, but my lunch companion did, so that was his evaluation - he did seem to enjoy it, as he finished the whole bowl without any problem :D
