Three…

I dropped by the Farley food court again the other day and noticed that they had something new…

…their 3-bean drink at only RM2.00 a glass.

Farley's 3-bean drink 1

It is a combination of red and green beans…with a sprinkling of ย crushed peanuts on top…

Farley's 3-bean drink 2

I decided to give it a try and found that it wasn’t too bad – quite nice, I would say though I’m not really dying to have it again and in comparison, I would much sooner go for the ice kacang or iced red bean (ang tao peng) at Rinta Cafe which I feel is a lot nicer even though that would cost a lot more.

While I was there, I also tried their kueh chap

Farley's kueh chap 1

…the name kueh being derived from kueh-tiao/kway teow – flat rice noodles except that it is not cut into thin narrow strips like the latter but in big pieces instead…

Farley's kueh chap 2

…and chap means mixed, so you will get a mixture of braised meat with all the innards – intestines, liver and so on plus some eyew-char-koi and half a hard-boiled egg.

I had the special which cost RM5.00. It seemed a bit too soupy but on the whole, I thought it tasted pretty good. I’ve had better elsewhere though and if I were to drop by again and had to choose, I think I would opt to have the beef noodles special that I had previously for that same price.

  1. No thanks to the soya drink… but I’d go for the kuih chap anytime. LOL.

    Don’t think there was soya…santan, I think…and I’m not a fan of santan in such drinks. Prefer evaporated milk. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    1. Oh… so the picture was peanuts! Mistook it for soya beans. I thought there would be red, green and soya bean inside. So it was just peanuts. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      I would prefer it without peanuts. The taste sticks out like a sore thumb…and are nuts beans? LOL!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. I tot nuts are some sort of beans? Not kah? LOLOL.

    Dunno…you’re the expert in nuts! And they come in pairs? Hahahahahaha!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. hey, the drink is something very new, i would love to try that too.. wonder how it taste with the crushed peanuts as toppings.. they should put some corns too.. lol..

    Then no more 3-beans… Have to give new name liao! ๐Ÿ˜€

  4. errr.. am only ok with red bean. lol! never like green bean! >.< btw, the kueh chap nice!!! eyerrr pork i wan!

    Green beans also nice leh? Wah…you love pork? Hahahahaha!!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. I think I’ll skip the peanuts on top!

    Ya…don’t make much of a difference in taste, anyway. Just a bit of kacang taste when you bite into it.

  6. I think the 3 beans drink is healthy & refreshing. Hope to see this new drinks here sure I’ll try it ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ya…it’s good that they’re trying out new things – at least, can have something different for a change sometimes. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. The drink is so special. But I will prefer crushed peanuts on ice cream anytime. Yummy.

    Oh no… I miss kueh chap. We can’t find them here in S’ban. sob sob…. and I don’t know how to cook. sob sob……

    I dunno either… Crushed peanuts with ice cream? Not for me, don’t mind things like chocolate rice…sweet with sweet, more compatible.

    1. Crushed peanuts on ice cream… chocolate ones, especially are nice! Heavenly! ๐Ÿ˜›

      Oh…I was thinking of chocolate on vanilla. Dun really fancy peanuts on icecream.

  8. I love the drink, but can request to omit green beans ar?..hehehhehe

    Another one who doesn’t like green beans… Not bad leh? But I too would prefer red beans! LOL!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  9. The *NEW* looks good. Ohhhh… love kueh chap missing them dearly like your sharp pixz.

    You have kueh chap there too? I know Kuching has. Last time, if we wanted to eat, we had to go to Kuching…but now we can get it at a few places here…

  10. 3 – beans drink? Something new…but i don’t think i will try that, because i don’t like beans. HAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHHA

    No kuei chap for me too..how it taste? Sweet?

    Something similar to bak-kut-teh…but all the yummy innards instead of pork bones. LOL!!!

  11. OOhh Kueh Chap is very famous in a stall in Penang, Kimberly street! You have to try that one day ๐Ÿ™‚

    Must take note of that…when I go to Penang again…probably in 2012! LOL!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. I wanna tag along to Penang… den can ask that Eugene bring us go makan makan at Gurney. Eee… I wan… you let me kno… Penang I wanna go… den can go Ferringhi Beach to collect seashell… or Pete’s kampung at Pantai Bersih to collect some remis to eat! LOL! Oh gosh! Pantai Bersih… I used to live there. The best time of my life!

      2012…when my daughter will be back in SP. Gurney? Eeeee….not nice – food not nice, place not nice (all the uneven wobbly tables and stools), people rude and grumpy. Went once, never again…and so crowded! Overrated….other places a lot better! Pete’s in KL…don’t think he’ll make his way all the way there for our sake.

  12. Not much of a fan of kueh chap when i think about the ‘chap part.. There’s one kueh chap shop which i used to patronize a lot once – Yummy Cafe.. the kueh chap there is nice too !

    Oooo…I love those spare parts!!! Just mustn’t eat too often – high cholesterol, they say! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yes, I think it’s still there – the one at Yummy…but parking in the daytime is a pain.

  13. Eeek! Seriously not into kueh chap at all….the smell is “uek-y”

    Hey! Come to think of it…I remember that smell! When I had it in Singapore…long long ago but no kuih – they had the chap to eat with porridge at some roadside stalls. I was ok with it though. I have not had kuih chap in Kuching since the 70s – can’t remember whether got or not….but those that I’ve had here do not seem to have that smell. Maybe they do not clean the innards…especially the intestines? Then they will look nice and round…but may taste a bit bitter. The thoroughly cleaned ones may look like tayar pancit! LOL!!!

    1. It sounds gross-ier after your explanation! LOL!

      LOL!!! I’m not known for being refined… Have you heard of the kuih chap at Padungan Market? Puan Sri used to buy every Saturday morning (and the let-tau suan also) when she went marketing. They found a rat in the stew…or was that the guy who accidentally chopped off his fingers and threw them all in with the innards? ROTFL!!!

      1. I think that’s the one at 3rd Mile shops, unless it’s a common occurrence among the kway chap stalls!!

        Oh? Dunno… Thank goodness, never had kuih chap there. But I used to have a share of what she bought home from the Padungan market. Was very very nice! Hahahahaha!

  14. wah…new drink there…3 beans …i know the 3 layered tea only….now coming up with beans…

    same here, prefer evaporated milk

    Ya…we’re two of a kind! ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. KUEH CHAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! T^T

    Yum! Yum! That’s the one you went to but did not get to eat… Hehehehehe! ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. 3 bean drink is something interesting..
    RM2, not expensive la…

    Ya…the price is definitely ok. The taste is also ok…. Not something that I would go all the way back there to drink again.

  17. wooo!!! I’m gonna try that drink once I got back to Sibu in September wou!!

    September? Still a long way to go! Hehehehehe!!!!

  18. Just now i feel really hungry saw the chap kuet n the special 3 bean drink.

    I just finish my dinner …. woooo yet…. feel better now.

    the chap look a bit oily and a lot of fat skin. hehehe

    Oooo…I love the fat and the skin and everything! Hehehehehe!!! But mustn’t have that too often. Once in a while, ok. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  19. the drink.. so beany.. how to drink? more like eating..
    haha.. =)

    Hahahaha!!! Kill two birds with one stone? Drink and eat… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  20. Well, da drink is something new to me. Have not encountered something like dat before. Would love to try it though… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Worth trying. Quite nice..but not something to shout about…or drag friends there to try.

  21. Kuey Chap looks delicious to me,(my kind of food)I love soup, braised stuff…lol! Most of all, I like the beany drinks… looks nutritious and thirst quenching!^o^

    Nice! But all those innards, not so healthy…so must refrain from eating too often! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  22. I used to have kueh chap at Aloha – Sibu last time.. But now, I can have all the kueh chap I want in Kuching.. LOL.. Can’t find this is KL!

    The fella has moved to Yummy (opposite Ngiu Kee). I had once at Aloha and once at Yummy. His is quite good, just that I seldom go to town…so seldom get the chance to eat plus the parking in that area is real bad. But hey…I saw somebody posting on kueh chap in her blog the other day, West Malaysia…!
