Second try…

I was here a week earlier but did not think that the beef noodles that I had were that great even though I quite liked the kompia stuffed with minced meat and even those, I would not say that they’re the best in town.

Well, I went back again soon after, together with my missus, to try some of the other things that they are selling at the stall there…

Colourful, food stall

My missus had the claypot noodles (RM5.00)…

…and it was very good. I do not think it is a bit pricey at all considering that there is that huge slab of pork in it plus half a stewed hardboiled egg.

I had the bitter gourd mihun (RM4.50)…

…which is 50 sen more expensive than what I had here but there is a poached egg and I think there are more ingredients as well in this one. Taste-wise, I would think this one has an edge over the other – both are nice but comparing the two, this one is a bit nicer.

I did not have any tummy space to try the kampua noodles but I did order the pian sip (RM2.30) to share…

…from the other food stall in that particular shop. They were very good, I would say…and 20 sen cheaper than elsewhere.

Well, since this place is not very far from my house, you can be sure that I would be dropping by again sometime to try the other stuff that they have all lined up for the taking…

  1. how could you how could you?? how could you have no more tummy space for your favorite kampua noodles?? oooh, so bad of you kampuaking arthur!! πŸ˜€

    Hmmmm…I had kampua yesterday and if I had kampua again today, then you will come in and slam me even though they are from different places and I am only trying to share with my other readers regarding the ones I’ve tasted and whether they are any good – so many coffee shops here and each has a kampua stall and they are not all the same, some good…others not so…so you can imagine how many there are to try. Now, no kampua, also you come and slam me. Really, my life is so miserable. Serba salah…nothing I do is right. 😦

  2. As usual the food looks delicious and appetizing. You are so calculative to remember all the dollars and cents in details. My head is always blurr, just eat and eat nia.

    My memory’s still good…but sometimes, I type & save in my hp…or if there is a menu, I will take photos of it. I know a KL blogger who has a little notebook and she will jot everything down…

  3. Eh the price here slightly steeper noodles selling nothing below RM4.50

    Well, the kampua is cheaper than elsewhere by 20 sen. This stall, ya…the prices higher but lots of ingredients and the most important thing – it is very nice. Not like some of the stuff I have had at Jalan Alur or some places here even…expensive and hardly edible! 😦

  4. Bitter gourd mihun with clear soup looks good. So generous with the minced meat. Love the pian sip too but the claypot noodles looks different from ours.

    Ya…never had anything like it before. Original recipe, I guess. Was good, not bad at all…but I prefer the bitter gourd mihun. I love clear soup.

  5. Is the bitter gourd mihun bitter? I never quite like bitter gourd because of the bitter taste. My dad is the only one in by family who likes it.

    No. That’s the thing these days – bitter gourd is not bitter, chili is not hot, Dayak brinjal is not sour…. It has the green bitter gourd taste but not the bitterness…and not overcooked, still nice and crunchy. I love it!

  6. Happy holidays, STP!
    I’ve never tried bitter gourd mihun before cos I scared it’ll be very bitter… my grandma cooks the best bitter gourd cos it’s never bitter :p

    Bitter gourd these days is not bitter, dunno why. Last time, we were taught to buy those with wide ridges…not bitter but sometimes, not very reliable. These days, just buy…all not bitter anymore. The world is changing….

  7. No, you can’t have kampua everyday, and that bitter gourd is much better for you. They say anything bitter is good for you. Looks like second try’s a charm.

    One place that is worth dropping by when you’re home next month! πŸ˜‰

  8. hot, soupy comfort food for these rainy days, rite (yes, it’s raining in kl now as i type this, again) πŸ˜€

    Not raining here… On the whole, weather’s been pretty good. A bit of rain sometimes and not hot – I like! πŸ™‚

  9. the pian sip looks good with its thin skin! its quite interesting to see how this stall sells so many different things together… ppst.. I am also a huge bittergourd fan! πŸ˜‰

    Ya…I would prefer it if they just offer a few of the best that they can dish out. No need to think too long to decide…and dunno which is truly good.

  10. The pian sip nampak sedap.Claypot noodle tu if letak kaki ayam lagi shiok.

    Phew!!!! Thank goodness! Lucy doesn’t eat those…and neither do I! LOL!!!

  11. So, how many times do you reckon you need to sample all they have to offer? πŸ™‚

    I guess I would just have to go by instinct and choose what I think will be nice. Can’t be trying all…and looking at the photos may help – pick the more photogenic ones.

  12. Good to see they are generous with the ingredients not like some shops

    Where? In KL? These are pretty good…no complaints. πŸ˜‰

  13. I would like to try the bitter gourd mihun.. it looks very “ching”.. clear.. not oily.. just nice for a cold nice day.. πŸ™‚

    Ya…should be easy to cook. Just don’t overcook the bitter gourd, keep it nice an green. πŸ™‚

  14. aiyo bittergourd meehoon! That day i had bittergourd noodles and posted on FB. It was very good! The next day went back there William kaypoh ordered mihun but ended up the mihun absorbed all the soup away left me with nothing to slurp 😦

    You have it there? How did that happen? They took too long to serve or you’re so slow in eating till all the soup went into the mihun? πŸ˜€

  15. The bittergourd mihun soup is something that I cook up sometimes for a quick lunch. Nice and healthy! And yummy Bian Nuk~ πŸ˜€

    I certainly would want to do it myself sometimes… Shouldn’t be difficult, I think. Ah…I guess you’re Foochow? πŸ˜‰

  16. Hmmm…I must try cooking bitter gourd in soup. Did the mihun soup have any hint of bitterness from the bitter gourd? I usually stir fry my bitter gourd with garlic salt and then add eggs. But can’t get it as nice as the one in the restaurant. No “wok hei” 😦

    Nope, not bitter at all but has that green taste of the bitter gourd. I like it!

  17. claypot noodles in soup?

    Nowadays you love bitter gourd soup a lot? hehehe..good good..good for health.

    It is actually a “hit”, there is a time, when this bitter gourd things just out. I heard my friend said you can find a row of shop all selling bitter gourd soup and many way of it. So far i have not try, i don’t mind to try, if i come accross one.

    Not that many here. So far I have seen three – One Cent’s closed down (your favourite mee sua stall) but available at the laksa stall there in that same shop (the parents of the girl at this one), and one more at Red House, so still three that I know of…

  18. it looks just the same with the catalog there in the windows thats a huge point for me

    I think I take nicer photos… Wink! Wink! Hehehehehehe!!!!!

  19. the kampua is not bad! next on your list: sui jiao, tom yam, kampua

    I’ve tried the sui jiao at the parents’ stall at the other coffee shop. Nice but a bit too expensive, I think… 😦
