Taman Selera Jalan Othman, PJ Old Town

Do you know that Oldtown Bhd was listed on Main Market in Bursa Malaysia? Yes, old kopitiam selling white coffee in Ipoh is now a listed company. Talk about growth. Now we all can be a shareholder of this coffee chains phenomena.

Okay back to my post hahaha. I went to have dinner in Taman Selera Jalan Othman, PJ Old Town during Chinese New Year way back in Febuary with my sister and bro-in-law. Of course with my two adorable niece and nephew too. This is the Nth time that we've been here because our maternal hometown is in PJ Old Town. So, we've been eating here since we were kids.

It's been a while now that we didn't come to this food sanctuary because we don't come to PJ Old Town as often as we used to. In the past, we come back almost every week with our parents.

There are so many stalls here selling different kind of hawker fare. One of the most blogged about one is of course the Chinese satay stall that sells pork satay. One have to way a long time for the uncle and auntie to dish out the satays.

No worry there, we ordered a lot of other dishes from neighbouring stalls. The Penang rojak is very good. But if you can't take spicy one, remember to ask the boss not to put in chilis because it's quite hot.

I see many customers eating Oh Jien (oyster fried) too. So, we also ordered a plate. True enough, the oyster is quite big in size and juicy. Yummy.

My sister ordered WatDanHor (fried rice noodle with egg gravy) for her kids. Not too bad too.

After like 30 minutes of wait, alas came the pork and chicken satays. The auntie told me, pork is darker colour than the chicken but I still can't quite differentiate which is which until I bite into them lol.

Now I know why so many people rave about the satay here. First, it's not overly grilled like some that the meat is burnt. Second, the satay sauce here is very creamy and have a strong peanut base. It's not so spicy, so even children can take it.

I also ordered TomYam from a Thai stall there. It's so-so only.

Another popular stall there is the ice kacang (ABC, Air Batu Campur). Too bad when we wanted to order they have already sold out (it's about 9pm ++). So next time have to go a bit early to savour that ice kacang.

After dinner we went to my mom's old home to visit our cousins and aunts there. This picture of my niece and nephew on the old swing reminds me of my sister and I when we were their age. I think we took a picture on the same swing before. Too bad I don't know where is the old pictures now.
