Uncle Sunny Wong’s Home Cooked Food | KL Best @ Off Jalan Ipoh

Having the time to track down anything that is delicious can be really exciting and be fruitful as the time spend is so worth while is like having a pot of gold in your hands. Two weeks ago CK and her hubby took a break from their hectic work and had visited Kuala Lumpur. During that few days we went food hunting with Ken and we end up at this little half concrete and half wooden house cum restaurant. My first sight of this eatery was not impressive at all due to the surface look but as you may read on, my views are totally changed . . . . . “never judge a place or a person by it’s cover”.

Uncle Wong's Home Cook Food 1

This place reminded myself of my childhood life where the village I stayed that called my hometown. Everything was very basic, you get a wooden round table, wooden chairs and simple basic cultery. This is so remindful and so authentic. Uncle Wong is the name of the proprietor of this little restaurant and run by his wife and kids. Uncle Wong basically the main cook who handles 2 to 3 stoves at one go and his wife does the prep work. The kids will do the serving and looking after the customers beverage need.

It was a simple open kitchen concept where we can see him cooking our dinner. This really reminded me of my little adventure at the Palace of the Golden Horse where I dine in the kitchen while the chefs mastering the dinner. I got to say that this restaurant served the best home cooking food without any frills, trust me. Dining here reminds me of my mum’s and aunt’s cooking, simple yet delicious.

This restaurant don’t have a name, so I called it Uncle Sunny Wong’s Home Cooked Food. This restaurant is located along Ipoh Road, just next to the Ipoh Road School or just opposite the Ipoh Road Indian Temple.

    This is one of the places that I would want to go often but looks like I have to wait for a while before I can taste Uncle Wong’s dishes.
    So at the meantime, I really envy all of you for able to drop by his place anytime…haha

    Simplicity at its best! I am always in awe of folks like the chef who can handle multiple orders from different tables so gracefully! Will be a bit tricky for me to get to that part of town but well worth it!

    This restaurant free hand for you to suggest the chef how you want to cook your meal. And most interesting is no menu also. 😀

    Hi big boys oven! haven’t been by in a while, looks like you are eating well! that restaurant sounds like a wonderful find and is best indicated by the fact that you returned the next week! I love the rustic appeal and it’s always nice to dine alfresco.

      hi foodhoe, yes it is difficult to find a rustic place to dine in the city this days! The food was simple and delicious at an affordable price too, something that is hard to find in the city.

    All the dishes look so homely! My MIL’s vinegared pork trotter is very delicious. Unfortunately I am not a great fan of that. Hehehe!

      hahahaah noted this, next time when we dine, I will not have this! :)

    Pork trotters!! outdoor air!! I am booking a plane ticket. Some of the greatest restaurants I love to eat at are absolute hole in the walls. Heck I almost drug friends physically into the place to eat there but once they eat there they have learned never judge a book by its cover too. Sad that so many people can’t get over their fear of nasty looking places and barge in and sit down.

    Awesome write up!

      well find food in this place can be so rewarding just like what Selba is doing in Jakarta, I too loves her finding in the city of jakarta. I guess modernization had cause such heritage food just gone missing and disappear just right infront of us, such food should be continue.

    The steamed egg is really working my appetite up. Too precious to chew and too rude to suck just let it flow and savour the goodness.

      mimid3vils, truely not oily at all rather dry, well drained I think. The sotong was good but I felt the chicken was slightly burn which has a bit bitter taste but still not bad, the meat was strangely moist.

  • April 30, 2009 - 1:46 pm | Permalink

    very homely indeed. and hey for a moment i thought it was your stall -_- !

    p/s: my mom can make very smooooth and silky steam egg. I think its the time factor. And she usually will add water to the egg so it wont become hard

    Hi,

    Can you please give me a detailed direction to uncle sunny’s place? I’ve tried finding for this place many times but couldnt find it.

    Say, I’m coming from dynasty hotel direction. I go straight & will be able to see shell station. Abit down the road there’s a school & just side by side is the indian temple.

    Is sunny’s place on the same side of the road I’m on? Do i need to turn into any small road? Or is the place on the opposite side of the road I’m on? Meaning I have to U-turn at the traffic light? Please advise.. Thanks
