Petaling Street
The District - Chatswood Interchange
436 Victoria Ave
Chatswood, Sydney

Petaling Street is of course the hugely popular Chinatown district in Kuala Lumpur. We had the pleasure of visiting recently and loved it.

It's also the hugely popular restaurant in Sydney CBD, that has now expanded to have a "sister" venue in fascinating food hub of Chatswood known as The District.

It's kind of a take away place, as you order at the counter and eat nearby at communal tables for all the restaurants. This is certainly not a problem though and adds to the atmosphere of the experience even more!

We were there to grab a quick dinner and so we had only planned to have main courses each. However, like all the best plans, they can change, and they did once we looked at the menu and saw the crispy hawker style deep fried tofu. It came in a decent sized serving, considering how reasonably priced it was. The sticky thick dipping sauce was great too. This was a really good start to the meal!

Sir spied a dish he hadn't tried before - the nasi pattaya. He loved the unique look to it and everything else on the menu seemed to fade away to him. It was a really unusual dish.

It's basically a huge tasty bundle of nasi goreng (or Malaysian fried rice to some) wrapped in an envelope of egg - or omelette.

It was drizzled with chilli sauce and served with fresh slices of cucumber - and it was delicious!

Mlady fancied some noodles but rather unusually decided to steer away from her usual favourite of char koay teow.

It's actually called Penang Fried Koay Teow here at Petaling Street.

This time she saw the dry egg noodle with curry beef and decided this was the dish for her for dinner tonight.

She was certainly glad she chose it - even though the serving was almost to big for her to finish. The flavours were great and it was another lovely combination meal.

Petaling Street is a low key place but it has some lovely hawker food.

Sir and Mlady's visit to Petaling Street was supported by the Malaysian Kitchen Programme.
