Heard it all before…

Well, if you’re one of those who habitually drop by in the middle of the night or those who do so early in the morning at the break of dawn, you probably would have seen this before – last week. Yes, I did blog about it all once but the post met with an untimely demise – I removed it and delegated it to trash as it seemed that what was mentioned either in the post or the comments did not go down too well with a certain individual but I will not elaborate further on that and will just let the matter rest.

In the aforementioned post, I was talking about my breakfast outing with my friend, Philip, currently home from the US, and how we went looking for some kolo mee that a friend told me was very very nice. To get there, I turned left at the 2nd roundabout, along Jalan Wong King Huo on the way to Farley, not into the first road – that is Jalan Jerwit but the second one, Jalan Bukit Lima Timur.

We drove around the first block of shops on the right and we did not have any idea which the one with the very nice kolo mee would be so we just stopped at the coffee shop with the most number of customers (2.277403,111.853582) where there was this stall in front…

Front stall

The stall behind it sells stuff like pan mee, Sarawak laksa and lor mee and I noticed there was somebody frying at the back so I guess one can opt for fried noodles, kway teow and the like here as well.

I ordered the beef tripe soup…

…that came with a ย plate of kampua noodles, no meat (RM5.00 altogether)…

Kampua kosong

…and yes, it was good!

Philip had the kolo mee (RM5.30)…

…which he liked very much and like the one he had here, he also liked the coffee at this place – after having had a few disappointments at his regular favourites in town.

All in all, I would say that we enjoyed our breakfast but considering that this place is more towards the other side of town, not really near to where we stay, we probably would not venture this far, or not too soon, at least, and would settle from something else closer to our homes.

  1. Now that’s a valuable recommendation of a restaurant – is it worth driving for?

    I did mention it in the post – good if you stay around the neighbourhood or if you happen to be in the area. Otherwise, one can get more or less the same things at a lot of other places…closer to home.

  2. Looks like an interesting place! Not sure how the weather is in your area, but it reached 40 today here in Montreal and even though I didn’t go outside it is affecting me. I am not feeling too good and am trying to keep myself hydrated. Take care of yourself, dear friend. ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s not as hot, mid-30’s perhaps…but it’s very humid here, a lot more uncomfortable. Yes, good to drink lots of water in the heat!

  3. Rm 5.30 for a plate? Almost the same price here!

    I would agree with you on that. Did not check the prices when I paid and I was quite shocked to see that on the menu. Maybe it was supposed to be RM3.50, typist typed wrongly. I would fork out RM4.50 to the most for that…or RM5.00, definitely not a sen more!

  4. Ops I saw my name listed at the right side bar ๐Ÿ˜€
    Such a great thing to be your friend’s tour guide to bring him around eating cheap and nice things

    Yes, I’ve linked you in my blogroll. My pleasure really – I enjoy doing that. If you come, I’d take you around too…for the best in town.

  5. Seldom venture there too. A bit far.

    Nice breakfast. The best is in the company of good friend. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes, definitely not so convenient for us, from where we stay.

  6. I didn’t get to read the post but you should have just left it there….why let one rotten apple spoils the whole bunch!

    Never mind. Keep the peace and spread the love…

  7. Beef tripe soup, I super like! I missed your “trashed” post and it’s too bad that some people are so sensitive.

    I guess it takes all kinds to make the world – can’t please everyone so we gotta please ourselves.

  8. Oh, the pictures looked familiar, not sure I came by or not last week to comment…the time difference might led me to your blog then.. Anyway, I have a nasty experience too and I have set my comments to moderation just a few days ago… Sigh… I thought of discontinuing with my blog.. But still hesitating..lets see how it is later….

    No wonder I saw my comments disappearing into the blue. You too? Why would anyone want to do a thing like that? Sighhhhhhh!!!!

  9. oh, i’m glad you revived this post, cos the food looks delicious … i’m normally not the biggest fan of beef tripe (don’t really love the texture or the taste), but i wouldn’t mind helping you finish your bowl of that ๐Ÿ˜€

    Not much taste – a lot would depend on the chili dip provided to go with it. Come, come – let’s share! ๐Ÿ˜€

  10. No wondered I read through the whole post like so familiar but can’t find my comments down here. And that was weird also because that was my first time see you have two post in feedly in a day.

    Ah well! Things happen. Always expect the unexpected.

  11. I have not found a place in KL/PJ which sells Kolo Mee as good as the ones from Sarawak! The photos of the food are making me hungry!

    Tried 7th Mile at Kelana Jaya? Aunty Christina has very good laksa – if I am not mistaken, she sells kolo mee too – at Lucky Gardens Bangsar.

  12. Glad you put this up again. Some people have no sense of humor! They take offense at the slightest thing, as if they’re just out there looking to cause trouble. Well, thanks for a good time and a good trip my friend!

    It takes all kinds to make the world, not the first and definitely not the last and I’d let each pass everytime – life is too short to sweat the small stuff, cherish all that is good and beautiful. Thanks for everything – sorry for the late reply, had a really early night after the long day.

  13. Aha, I thought these pictures looked familiar. You know… I love seeing your food posts even if I don’t comment on all of them. I’m always drawn to your noodle dishes, since my daughter loves noodles so much. I have not made noodles in a little while. I do believe I’ll make something with noodles later today.

    Yes, noodles are always the favourite of many. My girl has grown out of it, it seems, these days but no problem, she can go for something else. Lots of options to pick and choose.

  14. That’s a lot of beef tripe in the soup. Well worth the RM5 since there is a plate of plain kolo mee as well. Good that both of you enjoyed your meal.

    Yes, good place…just out of the way for us.

  15. Sounds like an interesting story. I didn’t get to read the original comments though.

    The food looks good and at RM 5, quite reasonable. I had the same thing for the same price but it was pork liver, which is generally prefer, unless they run out. This would be a solid second choice though, tripe.

    I love them too, liver! And intestines and tripe…all the sinful stuff. Hehehehehehe!!! But I guess it’s ok if one goes for it once in a long while, not on a regular basis.
