Good looking…

We went out with my dad one morning and as always, he would want to stop by some place for a bite to eat before going home. Where eating is concerned, he is not that adventurous and is quite happy to drop by the same old places and this is one of his favourites.

My girl wanted the kway teow

Y2K Foochow fried kway teow

…cooked with sauce/gravy, the same way they would cook the Foochow fried noodles…

Y2K Foochow fried mee

…which the rest of us had.

As always, it was very nice – they do it quite well here. If I am not wrong, the regular comes at RM4.00 a plate but with our special request for the extra slices of char siew on top, it was RM5.00 each. I did try a bit of my girl’s kway teow and I thought it was not that nice – the mee/noodles were better…or the tomato version that I had had before.

However, where the Foochow fried mee is concerned, personally I feel the one here (RM4.00, minus the egg)…

…has an edge over that one except that they do not have anything special – you just take it as it is, no liver, no innards, no prawns or sotong (squid), nothing. The only thing extra that one could request for would be the fried egg…

…and yes, that’s the way…ah ha ah ha…I like it!!! Unlike those miserable ones that I have had elsewhere, you can see the delightfully fragrant golden fringe in this one and instead of flipping the egg over and overcooking the yolk, you splash the hot oil over it to cook the top of the yolk lightly and inside, it is still nice and runny, exactly how I  would want it.

My missus had their fried pek koi, moist/wet (RM4.50)…

…while my girl had the pian sip, soup (RM2.50)…

…from the stall in front. I did mention in an earlier post that a young and handsome boy had taken over the stall and I thought his pian sip, soup was really very good. That was why I took her there to try and she agreed that it was nice.

I did go and try the kampua noodles and the pian sip, dry from this same stall one morning but I was not all that impressed. They were all right but not what I would go running back for more. For one thing, I did not see the good-looking guy…

…around that morning and a lady, someone older, was doing the cooking. I wonder if that made the difference. Perhaps I should go back there again one of these days and insist on him doing it for me…
