SS2 Wai Sek Kai (Food Court)

I love to makan-makan at food court! It’s a local culture among Malaysians to frequent food courts as it provides a wide variety of street foods. In Malaysia, food court refers to an eating place with a concentration of many small food stalls (mostly street foods) with a large seating area for patrons (usually free seating). Whenever I am blur and don’t know what to have for dinner, I would consider going to a food court and would favour SS2 Wai Sek Kai if I am in the vicinity. Wai Sek Kai loosely means glutton lane in Cantonese language. This place is located along Jalan SS2/64, Petaling Jaya and is also known as SS2 Selera Makan. The food photos featured here comprises of a few visits. With so many food stalls, one cannot possibly try everything at one go even if you bring friends! Lol! Three different cameras were used for the trips to the food court, the Olympus E-PL3, Sony NEX-C3 and Canon EOS 550D! Also took photos of the food stall, in case you want to go check the food out, coz there are lots of stalls here!

This food court is usually busy with patrons during dinner time and it’s very packed with people during weekends. So you have to be patient to find a seat. Opens from 5pm and most of the food stalls closes at 11pm.

Another one which I really enjoy (sparingly coz it’s rice with fat meat!) is the Claypot Rice with sliced pork and salted fish. Yummy. 8/10.

The Claypot Rice stall. There is another similiar stall at the other end of the food court which I would also wanna try out. Notice the stall number? That is how you look for it when you go there the first time.

Fried Oyster Egg is a popular here, with 2 -3 stalls. This one is not bad, 6/10….but I resent them using Styrofoam plates, plastic sauce plates and wooden chopsticks. Unfortunately many stalls here practice this trend and therefore not really environment-friendly.

This fried oyster stall is often busy with orders from patrons for take-aways.

Also tried the ‘Ice Kacang’ here. Below average coz the shaved ice is too coarse and not enough condense milk or coconut milk  1/10

Pork satay is so-so only…5/10. Another stall using Styrofoam box which I resent, especially for deep fried and barbecued foods.

I guess I’ve only tasted about 15-20% of the stalls here and there are many more which I haven’t tried. Gonna go there again for another few visits! 🙂
