It’s true…

…what my missus said that the fried kway teow/flat rice noodles from the Muslim stall here

…was very nice. I loved it – very flavourful and very spicy too, anytime nicer than those at the Chinese stalls where what you will get usually is nothing more than the noodles fried with garlic and soy sauce plus bits of some green vegetable and/or taugeh (bean sprouts) and egg and lots of msg…like what my missus had once from the stall at the back (RM3.50)…

…but there was a bit of meat in this one.

If I am not mistaken the ladies are actually Melanaus…and they have been around at this shop for as long as I can remember. I had the special (RM5.00)…

…that day though personally, I thought it was not really worth it, an extra RM1.50 for one fried chicken wing, not anything to shout about. The biasa (ordinary) is only RM3.50 and you get one telur mata kerbau, literally translated as buffalo eye egg, with it. At the end of the day, it is the taste of the kway teow that makes it stand out over most of the rest that I’ve had around town.

I also ordered their murtabak special (RM4.50)…

…to try and it turned out to be roti canai on the outside, a layer of egg and some bits of pulled and minced chicken inside. I did not think it was all that special – I would much sooner go for their roti telur (RM2.00)…

…at less than half the price. I enjoy that a lot more, I think.

Judging from the crowd at the place, it is pretty obvious that the shop is doing very well…and yes, I certainly would want to drop by again sometime.
