Many of my JB friends and readers who are fans of Tasek kway teow kia are adament that this is simply the best kway teow kia stall in JB. They are the ones whom when asked where is the best kway teow kia in JB, will answer instantly "Taman Tasek!" with an exclaimation mark!

I tried Tasek kway teow kia yesterday and sure enough joined its fans - I liked it very much too. The feel of the taste and flavours was delicate, understated, subtle, mild, and gentle on the taste buds  -  classy, lah. And all these delicious food for RM31.

At Taman Tasek Kway Teow Kia, the different innards are braised separately in a different pot, so we can taste the unique flavour and texture of each type of innards. (The average stalls simply dump everything into just one large pot and every part tastes pretty much the same as any other.)

Let's take a closer look at a sampling of what we ate.

The pork intestines were thoroughly and perfectly cleaned, and beautifully braised till smooth, soft yet still retaining that gentle spring.

The braised pig's skin was soft and smooth like baby's skin, I dare say.

Excellent soft preserved vegetable in braising sauce. That lovely herbal taste with a nice balance of subtly savoury and sweet.

Tasty soft, porous tofu that sponged up loads of flavourful braising sauce.

The kway teow kia in a tasty, clear, drinkable mildly herbal broth perfumed with aromatic shallot oil and bits of fried shallot crackles.

The kway teow kia is smooth, tender and complements the pork innards perfectly. I had two bowls of this :D

Ate and drank everything in it.

    1. Hey, I tried this kway teow kia place last weekend. To each his own. I would like to suggest this other place in Johor Jaya. It was showcased in the local show Ho Chiak. Give it a try and let us know your thoughts. It's just next to the Caltex station.

    1. Yes, it is very good value. No too far from Causeway. It takes about 10 minutes by car (when the road is clear).

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
