When school holidays and heavy rain combines – you get terrible traffic jam in the evening. To look on the brighter side, traffic is rather light in the morning – not that it’s a concern especially if you drive out of the house at 6.30am when traffic is extremely good, it makes no difference. Only on those overslept days it’s very much appreciated.
Anyway… approaching TTDI yesterday a little past 7pm, we saw Doli Kuey teow Goreng at the row of shop lots opposite TTDI Plaza. Being a fan of Kuey Teow Goreng (both me and Mr. Hubs), Mr. Hubs decided we should just perform the Maghrib prayers at the TTDI mosque and then have our dinner there – tension sgt dengan traffic jam actually. And so we did.
And I’m glad we did! Mr. Hubs had the special (bigger portion with more prawns), and I had the normal. It suits our tastebuds definitely. Mind you, we somehow or rather, always find places people go ga-ga over not as nice as claimed. Maybe our tastebuds are to be blamed. Like last weekend up North, we managed to try the famous Char Kuey Teow at Permatang Pauh, and I think I’ve tasted better, less famous ones all the time. But we discovered the satay there was marinated to perfection – extremely juicy! A must go the next time we’re there since Mr, Hubs and Imtiyaz are HUGE fans of satay.
Just googling some info on the place itself, I found out it is already very popular in Taiping. IDB would know, I guess.
At least when the traffic is really bad, we found a new place to eat!
