Pasembor and Mee Rojak along with some Pork Satay @ Bangkok Lane (The Jalan Burma End)

Just a short walk away from the Appom place, is Bangkok lane.

The place is a real beauty for photography, a mixture of old shop houses, refurbished with hints of western, nyonya and chinese. However by the time we walked from Jalan Burma into Bangkok Lane, i was instead lured to the uncle doing this thing.

Frying his mee.

Off the others went to snap away at the buildings as i sat down and admired how the man fried his mee with style, swirling his wok and making a symphony of noises as the mee cooked under the fire.

While you admire him frying his mee rojak, enjoy a plate of pasembor (also known as Indian Rojak, to me). The lime definitely plays a big part in lighting up the dish and tones down the big flavours you usually find in the sauce. The fritters, squid and the lettuce, oh so yum.

Looking for something more substantial, and they permeate the pasembor flavours into the noodles by tossing them all in the wok. What you get is a substantial meal or a great way to have a light snack for a few fellows.

The Pasembor and the Mee version is worth a try.

Not enough? Meet the uncle and auntie selling pork satay down the street. For 50 cents, what you get is a rather toned down version as compared to the heavily infused ones in Kajang. Some of us tasted tumeric, but my poor tongue could taste nothing much except that it is pork. The mildly sweet sauce and the bread did the satay no good too. I would be much happier if i took the pork down to the satay guys in Kajang to plead them to cook it for me.

I would have rather not ate the above.

Moving along as we ate everything up, should i continue with Penang Food? Or shall we start on our Prawn Fest?

Stay tune.

nice shots nipples! i like how the lettuce makes one 'feel' like the entire dish is less unhealthy. very comforting though misguided sensation:P
