Tang Pin Kitchen @ SS2 PJ

My husband who has eaten here before brought us to Tang Pin Kitchen @ SS2 PJ for breakfast one Sunday morning.

Looking through the menu, I realised that the food was very similar to what I've eaten before in Pandan Indah at the now defunct The 60s Teow Chew Fishball.

Then I saw the words "wholly owned by Tang House of Fishball" on the menu which confirmed my suspicion (The 60s Teow Chew Fishball used to be known as Tang House of Fishball).  But they have also expanded their menu to include rice dishes like nasi lemak, nasi kerabu, nasi dagang and chicken rice and desserts like ice kacang and cendol.

My husband had his usual Fried Chu Cheong Fun @ RM5.40 made of smooth and very thin sheets of chu cheong fun stir-fried with egg, Chinese chives and taugeh.  I liked that they use those fat, crunchy bean sprouts here that I absolutely adore.  The style is very much like fried char kway teow, only wetter.

Both my mother-in-law and son had the Tang Pin Mee Pok @ RM7.60 which is their signature dish of doughy yellow noodles with minced pork and crispy pork lard tossed in flavoured oil and vinegar.  It tastes rather similar to Hakka or kolo mee but will be bland to those who don't like subtle flavours all that much.

The noodles came with a separate bowl of soup with some fish cake slices and spring onions.

I had the Fried Fish Noodle & Chu Cheong Fun @ RM8.40 that was very similar to the previous dish of fried chu cheong fun in terms of taste and texture.

Except this one had the addition of fish noodles (aka noodles made from fish paste)...similar to those you can get in steamboat restaurants.

I ordered their signature combo dish of Fried Fish Cake, Tau Kan & Fu Chuk @ RM10.80 for sharing as I remember liking this before...and I still do.  The fried tau kan (thick bean curd sheet) is still my favourite of the three (the one in the centre)...crispy on the outside with an abundant fish paste filling inside.

We also had an order of Fried Mini Dumplings @ RM7.60 served with a dipping sauce of shredded fresh ginger and black vinegar.  These are like Esquire Kitchen's wor tip (just not as good!).

I have not had their Yam Cake @ RM3.80 before, so I ordered one to try.  These ones were slightly dense but I did like the minced preserved radish and dried shrimp on top.

We had Kopi-o-ping @ RM3.20 (not worthy by my standards), Pineapple with Lemon @ RM4.30 (which turned out to be tinned pineapple with syrup) and Chinese Tea @ RM1.

My Personal Opinion

If you like subtle flavours, then you'll probably enjoy their mee pok.  Otherwise, go for the more robustly flavoured dark sauce stir-fry noodles.  All in all, not a bad place for cheap noodles with some delectable snacks.

  1. Their menu is quite interesting and just fish ball dishes alone might not attract the changing customers' eating patterns. I was eyeing at their yam cake and fried dumplings. This restaurant is quite far from your place but your family is very adventurous! I must stop eating around PJ areas only or else I might rot. LOL

    1. We're usually around PJ areas on Sunday mornings (after church) as we're already half way there :)

  4. The fried mini dumplings look good. Shame they didn't follow through in flavour.
