No other…

Well, where my dad is concerned, no other place does it better!

We took him out on two consecutive days last week, Friday and Saturday and on both days, he wanted to drop by here for his Foochow fried noodles…

…which is now RM4.50 a plate…

…and you have to add an additional 50 sen for the extra char siew on top. Yes, the prices are generally higher than most but unlike the regular coffee shops around town, the place is air-conditioned plus what they dish out is pretty good, worth that extra bit that you would have to fork out.

…was RM5.50 a plate though – the regular fried kway teow is RM4.50 like the noodles and one would need to pay 50 sen extra for the tomato sauce used and another 50 sen for the extra char siew on top.

Here, you can see that our local kway teow

…is thicker than the thin and smooth and translucent ones in the peninsula which I would prefer especially for kway teow, fried dry but I do know some people who like the one we have here more.

My missus wanted the fried glass noodles/tang hoon (RM5.00)…

She said she had never tried it before but looking at my old post here, actually, she did! Hmmmm…probably a prescription of gingko nuts is in order. Hehehehehe!!!!

I thought it looked nicer the last time around, the presentation, but this round, when it was served, I could detect the wok hei fragrance…

…and yes, my missus said it was good.

The next day, Saturday, my father wanted the Foochow fried noodles again and it being a weekend, my girl was home and was able to tag along with us. She wanted the fried rice (RM5.00)…

that she had had before and enjoyed a lot. It was not dark – our guess was that it did not have soy sauce in it or not very much, at least, so it would not be loaded with gluten, all right for her to have it.

The mum wanted the regular fried kway teow

…RM4.50 plus 50 sen for the char siew on top. She said it was nice but I do recall trying it once and personally, I would rather go for the tomato version.

On one of our previous visits, I saw the son of the couple running this place eating the kampua noodles so I thought that if it was good enough for him, it should be pretty good. That was why I ordered a bowl to try (RM3.50)…

…and yes, it was very good, so very fragrant with the lard used in the tossing and the complimentary soup was nicer than what you would get elsewhere though not as nice as some of those that I have had at some Malay food stalls.

Well, my mum has yet to be discharged from the medical centre so we would have to take care of my father too and take him where he wants to go in the morning and needless to say, the people here would be getting to see quite a lot of us round this time.

Y2K Cafe (2.294220, 111.825753) is located in the Tunku Osman area, round the corner from that block of shops where branches of AmBank & RHB Bank are located. The back entrance actually faces the side (right, not the main one) entrance/exit of Methodist Secondary School.
