I made it! I finally made it! I went somewhere to have some nice food when I’m back in KL! Woohoo!!!!
I guess there are people who are more excited than I were about me going to this oink-derful place. Okay, okay.. since you can’t wait, I’ll do the blog post now…
So, the reason I was able to come here was because I was going out to meet up with a friend, again. This time, the friend is actually an American blogger, the lovely Anna of Slightly Astray. She is currently in the middle of a one month stay in KL. She has been here for 2 weeks, and she has sticked to within a 2 kilometers radius from where she is staying for most parts, in downtown KL. So today, since I’m back in KL, I made it my mission to “kidnap” her to some place far away. And I immediately thought of this place, because this was the top of my list of must visit cafes in the Klang Valley, top by a few thousand miles from the second contender. So she gets to accompany me to become white mice…
It’s not as bad as it seems. She wanted to experience what the locals do on a weekend. As you all know, the locals don’t go around hunting for char kuay teow or nasi lemak or roti canai all the time. The locals (at least the Chinese) go out and about looking for nice little cafes to have coffee and some porky-licious noms on weekends more often, right? Right???
And the menu here is mostly locally inspired creations, so that’s definitely something cool too, right?
Wahahahahaha!!! OMG I’m so happy, I’m barely coherent… Let’s have the pics…
I know, these are all items that Eat What, Eat Where have eaten and featured in her blog. I really should have been more original and adventurous and try other items not seen in her blog.
But… but but but… those other items do not have stars right next to the item names. And the reason I came here was because I saw those pictures in that blog post. I know I wanted to try them!
If I ordered something else but got disappointed instead, I would have only myself to blame!
No, no no no. I can’t take that type of risk. Not when I think I’m only going to come here once. I must have the food items that attracted me!
And so I had. How was the food? Well… I came here with high expectations. Let’s just say, my expectations were not misplaced. My expectations were met, brilliantly! Anna said it was very good, but since she is American, I don’t know if she’s being honest. I think she is. But actually I don’t really care about her opinion on this one, regardless 😀 . I’m sure it will be damn good for the local Malaysian Chinese palate.
I’m not going to describe in minute details how each dish tasted. I’m no food expert of that level. You can go to the link above for that, she’s a better food blogger than I am and ever will be.
Still… there’s one minor disappointment. Not because of the food. Well, yes I guess it is because of the food. It is because I did NOT get to eat that food!
Tsk!!! While I was happily digging in, I noticed this plate of salad looking thing served to a couple seated next to our table. At that moment I thought, “What? A salad? WTF is a salad doing in this place??“.
And then I noticed a platter with 3 mini glasses of… things being served as well. One of the glasses contained what looked like bacon bits. Another glass contained pork lard croutons! And another contained some liquid stuff. Pork lard oil???
And then I saw the couple poured the contents into the salad, and began tossing it. What the…??? And then it hit me. Is this Yee Sang?? Pork lard and bacon Yee Sang??!! Man…. fuck! That’s exciting! I should’ve gone for that!!!
And then I began to pay attention to my surroundings and noticed a big poster showing that they are offering this Yee Sang for Chinese New Year. What?!! Why didn’t I notice this before?? Noo!!!! Argh!!!!
Don’t tell me that I should’ve just ordered that as well and stuff both of us silly. That’s bad manners to my traveler friend, and I’m not like that. Sigh… I guess I’ll have to wait until next year’s CNY to come here for this again. Hopefully I will remember it by that time…
Anyway, the point is, yeah, Flingstones @ Subang Jaya is pork-some! Flingstones is pork-mazing! Flingstones should be worshipped by the pork eating fraternity in Malaysia! And Flingstones is doing a kick-ass pork lard and bacon Yee Sang sempena Chinese New Year so you must definitely pay them a visit if you love your oinks!
Sekian, terima kasih. Thanks for reading…
