Love on top…

I heard a lot of favourable reviews of the noodles available at Stall No. 7…

…on top of the Rejang Park market…

…but I never dropped by to try until just the other day.

Even then, we did not have the noodles in mind – we also heard that one could get kacang ma at a stall there but luck was not on our side. It was not on the menu that afternoon and we did not fancy the options that the lady had for the chap fan (mixed rice) so we went back to Stall No. 7 instead.

The place has a unique feel to it, not quite like a hawker centre and more like some place for those people staying in the vicinity to get together and chit chat to while the time away. Why, there were these two guys playing Chinese chess by the side…

…even and I so love this antique-looking wooden cabinet…

The kopi-o-peng (iced black coffee) was only RM1.20 a glass…

…cheaper than at the regular coffee shops where prices may range between RM1.50-RM1.80.

The noodles are also cheaper than elsewhere – I had the fried kway teow (RM3.30)…

…which would be at least RM3.80-RM4.00 or more at other p[laces around town.

My missus had the Foochow fried noodles, also RM3.30…

…and yes, both our orders were very much to our satisfaction.

I certainly would not mind dropping by again…and I did see something stuck to the cabinet at the stall, going for RM5.00 so I asked what it was. The guy said something about noodles with stewed pork ribs or whatever and when I drop by again, that would be the one thing I would want to order and try.

Be forewarned, however, that this place could get quite congested in the mornings, especially on Saturdays and Sundays, but when we went around 11.30 a.m. that day, it was perfectly all right and there were ample parking spaces right beside the market.

THE REJANG PARK HAWKER STALLS are right on top of the (wet) market on the upper floor. The market is located among the shops in the commercial centre in that housing estate along Jalan Teruntum.
