Ayam Berlado

Ayam Berlado, originally uploaded by tidaknama.

This is actually an Indonesian dish of fried chicken marinated with lots of chilly and onions. One of my favourites at this small indonesian restaurant in town. I will put up a map soon. Surprisingly it is not that hot, but very tasty indeed.

Born in Penang but working in KL, my trips home are not complete without buying tau sar peah for my KL friends. But during my last trip back during the school holidays, I had a bad experience at the Him Heang shop.

They were out of stock of TSP and my conversation with the staff went like this:-

Quite lengthy, but please bear with me)
me: 3 big boxes TSP please
staff: big one no more
me: (desperate) any small boxes?
staff: yes
me: Can i see how small? I need to estimate how many i need (I've never bought small boxes before, excuse me)
staff: flat one la
me: give me 6 la (being just as rude as him)
staff ignores me and turns to another girl who has just walked in standing beside me.
girl: do you have salty type TSP?
staff: No more
girl: What about other biscuits?
staff: yes, sweet one
girl: can I see them?
staff: all look the same la
The girl is now confused and does not know how to proceed. That's when i decided to cancel my order and walk out.

I went to Ghee Hiang's new place which is a nice white bungalow at the end of Macalister Rd with ample parking).

They were also out of stock but the girl in uniform kept apologising for being out of stock and asked me to come back after 2pm when they will have stock fresh from the oven. But I said I am driving back that morning - she even said "Have a safe trip"! She also recommended their famous sesame oil.

What a difference in customer service! I am definitely not buying from Him Heng anymore. Anyway, although Ghee Hiang TSP have less of "ewe chang" flavor they are less sweet & better for health.

So I really hope all Penangites will start to support Ghee Hiang - and tell your non- Malaysian friends that ppl at Him Heang are not the typical courteous Penangites

PS: BTW the way you described the beh teh saw sounded more like pong peah (which Ghee Hiang has too)
