Kak Ros 911

I just enjoy eating good food but it doesn't qualify me a foodie.

Attended to a client for signing some where in Ampang Hilir quite close to lunch time. Kak Ros of Kak Ros 911 masakan nogori (Negeri Sembilan food) came to mind. Made a quick dash thereafter to Kg Pandan where Kak Ros' situates and lucky me because it was off peak. Otherwise I would have to join throngs of corporate wigs eating masakan kampung (traditional food)!

This place was introduced to me by wifey some 13 years back. Her colleagues, then, used to drive all the way from the Golden Triangle to Kg Pandan for their masak lemak (dishes cooked with coconut milk) fixes. We used to frequent this place at least 4 times a year but because of the location we have given it a miss a number of years now. Just two weeks back, wifey and her office mates went for lunch at Kak Ros and she hugged her asking where she's been all this while! Apparently she serves traditional kuehs now and her badak berendam and lepat pisang are to die for according to wifey which I have yet to try.

They serve mean gulai lemak daging salai (smoked beef cooked in coconut milk) - mmm.. actually they serve mean gulai lemak (very thick and hot - not good for the heart but who cares?); period!

How to get there? Drive towards Kg Pandan via Jalan Kg Pandan. You drive straight on at the traffic light which turns into Desa Pandan. You will see a huge modern-looking Naza Motors show room on your left and get ready to slow down... You'll see Kak Ros 911 to the right (it has a mango tree in front of it, if I'm not wrong). Another landmark will be - huge cars parked in her compound and around the vicinity during lunch time.

Why the name 911? I dunno really...we never gotten around asking since we normally get engrossed with the food there!
