Paru Goreng at Teh Tarik Place, 1 Utama

Simon Says: I foresee a 5th By-election is coming. Elizabeth Wong might resign as the State Assemblywoman for Bukit Lanjan. When long will all this By-election shit stop?

Walking around 1 Utama and I have a sudden pang for a glass of teh halia and light snacks. There it was, Teh Tarik Place in a quiet and cosy corner near the entrance to Rain Forest the same floor as Kluang Station which is doing quite a brisk business despite their mediocre food. Opposite 港士港啡 which is quite contrast, while one is serving Hong Kong style 奶茶, the other is serving teh tarik. You can really find it all in 1 Utama it seems.

After ordering my teh halia, I am looking at the menu thinking of what to eat. Nasi lemak will be to heavy because it's just tea time for me, I still have to go to Pavilion for dinner. Then it caught my eyes. Paru goreng - RM 2. So there I put my order to the waiter. He re-confirmed with me, "Paru goreng saja?". "Ya, paru saja", I replied.

Paru Goreng (I got 4 pieces for RM 2)

Not that crunchy because it's not freshly fried for you. Nevertheless the texture of the cow lung is still there. Also the indescribable nice taste that one find the lung. Those that scurried away on hearing the word lung will not know what they are missing here. I will gladly exchange my glass of teh halia for a glass of cold Hoegaarden White to with the paru goreng.
