This is a very biased post because the moi stall belongs to my mother-in-law’s god-daughter. So, expect many photos and lots of promotion.
Location : At the beginning of Argyl Road, turning from Larut Road. On the left side of the road, there is a shack in an open ground. It is pretty interesting because you will be eating under the trees, with sands on your feet. Very authentic and kampung-ish.
Food : Sweet potatoes porridge. With lots of side dishes. My favourite is the dried oysters. Unique because they uses a lot of cili padi (small, fiery chillies) and soya bean paste (taucheo) in their cooking, not often found in most Teo Chew porridge stalls.
I am putting here only two side dishes photos of salted egg (‘cos it looks beautiful)
And a dish of salted vegetables cooked in taucheo and cili padi.
On hot afternoons, eating moi is a nice, refreshing change. I used to patronise this stall when I was working in Jalan Larut. Usually, a person’s food cost less than RM4, with many side dishes already. My god-sis-in-law charged me only RM5 for two persons, ordering 5 dishes! Beside porridge, they also have yam rice.
Do go and check out this couple’s moi. They used to be rather poor but with hard work, they are now living comfortably operating this moi stall. Large Mercs and rich taukehs are their regular customers. Errrr….don’t mention my name ‘cos she doesn’t know my name.
