Changing partners…

I happened to be in the vicinity that morning and I decided to stop by here at this coffee shop…

e Cafe

…right behind the Delta Mall…

…the first one in the block before this somewhat more popular one, the second one in that same block.

I had the kolo mee there a long long time ago, in 2011, but it looked like somebody else is running the stall now, a very pleasant lady…

The coffee that I had…

e Cafe kopi-o-peng

…was good and I liked the very nice and efficient workers (male) waiting at the tables – I think they were Indonesians. I took my seat at a table and one came quickly to wipe it clean and take my order. After he had served the drink, when I moved the glass for the “photo shoot” and the table was a little wet again, he came right away to wipe it again. At some places here, you would have to wave frantically and at times, even holler out loud to get some attention.

I ordered the kampua-kway teow combo…

…to see if it was any good.

Yes, if you do not want the kampua noodles, at many places here, you can ask for kway teow or bihun or even ngiau choo boi (rat’s tail) instead, tossed in that same manner and served. These are gluten-free but I would be a little wary as I am not sure if there is any wheat in the chio cheng ( light soy sauce) used like how there is wheat in the bottled dark soy sauce.

Having said that, if you are not that fond of kway teow or you do not want the kampua mee, you can always ask for a different combination or change partners, so to speak. LOL!!!

Back to what I ordered that morning…

…I thought it was all right, not anything to get me running back for more.

Gee!!! I can’t even remember how much I paid for that but if I am not wrong, that was RM3.00 a bowl…and looking at what the other customers were having, it looked like her fried kampua would be a better bet.

e-CAFE (2.311913, 111.846213) is the first shop right behind Delta Mall, Jalan Pedada – the block a little to your left if you are coming out of the mall via the back entrance.
