The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land.” – G.K. Chesterton

Food court eats @ Main Place USJ 21, Subang Jaya (Malaysia)

When we were in Kuala Lumpur for my cousin's wedding in May, we stayed at my parents' new apartment at the newly completed Main Place. My parents had waited more than 16 years for this apartment to be completed, as development had been fraught with delays due to abandonment by the original developer after only 60% completion, and then by two other developers who took on the project only to back out shortly after. I think my parents had essentially given up hope of ever seeing their apartment completed, but a fourth developer took on the project five years ago and saw it to completion. Now it's a highly sought-after residence above an upscale retail mall with a nice supermarket that stocks organic products! On our final night in KL, we had dinner in the food court in the basement of the Main Place mall, where my parents often have their meals. Their favourite vendor is Oyster King, so that's where we parked ourselves. My younger sister also got food from other vendors, but I ordered from Oyster King and the adjacent stall selling rojak and popiah. Pretty good quality for a food court!

Oyster King, where my parents are regulars and on familiar terms with the manager. The following three items are from this store:

Oyster King's O-chien, fried oyster omelette:

Fried rice:

Fried noodles:

The rojak and popiah stall, where we got the following three items:

Delicious Penang-style rojak:

Popiah - spicy and regular:
