Cedar Point food centre in Taman Century (near to Hotel Paragon) was the venue for our second WGOIJB (What is Going On In JB Facebook Page) Makan Blitz and it was great to see our Johor Kakis grew quickly in numbers!
We had a great time making new friends and trying out Johor hawker food together.
There were so many food stalls at Cedar Point that we had to confine ourselves mainly to a third of the stalls, towards the back part of the food centre. That just means that we will be back for those stalls which we did not managed to try out tonite. (If you need a landmark for Cedar Point, it's just at the foot of Hotel Grand Paragon.)
Pork satay from Tampoi Satay
Chicken wings and pork satay from Kimdo BBQ
The signage on this stall says Taman Sentosa Kimdo BBQ. Besides pork satay, it had Kimdo's signature "one-bone" chicken wings which were well liked by our Kakis.
BBQ sambal stingray from Ikan Bakar Sin KeeSin Kee Ikan Bakar was another favourite. We had their popular stingray in spicy sambal. The stingray was tender and fresh while the thick spicy sambal was greasy, almost creamy. Everybody loved it.
We also had Sin Kee's grilled lady's fingers and petai. Petai lovers must try this :)
Cuttlefish kangkong from stall no. 85
One of the more adventurous Kakis couldn't resist ordering these giant cockles (also from stall no. 85). I am not sure who, if anyone among us, liked it. I and Alan Cole tried it, and felt it tasted salty - Alan said it reminded him of a mouthful of sea water. To me, it was like blood. The taste we got when we were young and when we licked our open wounds after we skinned our elbows and knees, because our buddy said it'll help it heal. Anyone, remembers? Anyway, the taste of blood lingered too long in the mouth for my liking. By the way, these giant cockles moved off stall no. 85 rather fast, so there are connoisseurs who have acquired the taste and know how to appreciate these.
BBQ chicken wings from Hong Kee
The stall owner MR Yong and his wife had been running this same stall, the same way for 27 years!
Mango salad from Thai Food stall
Claypot chicken rice
Claypot mee sua
One of our Kakis Thomas was a big fan of this claypot mee sua and was recommending it to everyone. The broth was syrupy in consistency and was quite tasty. The skinny and soft mee sua soaked up the broth very well. The pork ribs were tender and sweet. This claypot mee sua got some new fans tonite. I forgot to take a picture of this stall. This claypot noodles stall, is just beside the claypot chicken rice stall on it's left hand side.
These are just the few stalls we tried last nite at Cedar Point, there are many more interesting stalls that we need to come back for.
