through the fire
Don't ask me what I was doing here. I was quite close to the flame. All I know is that was my order of Fried Rice and yes, it was delicious. In and around KL, there are stall/restaurants, mainly Chinese owned, that we call 'Tai Chao' (loosely means big fry). Probably the best 'homecooked' meals you can get. The one I frequent is in Jalan Ampang next to the Ampang Mini-Market and the wedding photography studio. Finding this Tai Chao isn't difficult, getting there is. Jalan Ampang is known for its awful traffic. So, it's good you're ready for dinner no earlier than 9pm on weeknights.
