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.

  1. I like that picture of those two guys playing Chinese chess. It is such a great activity for the brain. I need to start doing Sudoku again as I can feel my brain withering away as I do not think much these days -.-

    Good food with even better pricing will surely pull the crowd esp since it is above the market.

    I hear the rent is very cheap and there’s a stall vacant. Maybe I can set up a business there, do a little something to make ends meet. 😉

    Yes, have to keep mentally active or it will be a case of going…going…gone!

  2. I also like the antique-looking wooden cabinet, so nostalgic

    Oh gosh! The prices! If convert to S$, only S$1 per plate, so affordable

    The fried kway teow looks good

    Yes, just around SGD1, bet you can’t get anything like this at that price there.

  3. From your photos the place looks so airy and well ventilated. Must be a pleasant place to eat at.

    Yes, it is, all open on one side and not many stalls, clean plus the people are very friendly and nice…which is more than what I can say about the one at the Sibu Central Market. Not fond of that place at all.

  4. I like that antique wooden cabinet. Both dishes looks great & being a noodle lover, definitely Foochow fried noodles for me. Nice glass of kopi-o-peng to drown down everything. Pat pat your tummy.

    Yes, reminds me of our kitchen cupboards in the old days. The noodles and the drink add up to only RM4.50 – at some places here, that is the price of one plate of noodles! Sure makes more sense to come and eat here instead.

  5. I’ve just arrived back to KL at 6 am this morning after 6 weeks overseas and that kway teow is looking mighty delicious.

    You miss our local delights? That’s nice. 🙂

  6. There is always something you could find in the market hawker centre. In Kuching, nice hawker stalls centre would be in Hui Sing. Kenyalang and 3rd Mile market hawker centres above wet markets are good too.

    I have been to the Rejang park hawker stalls once. I dont remember what I bought there. Lol.

    Yes, I used to frequent the one at Kenyalang. Very nice but that was a long long time ago. I did tell you about the kacang ma here – I guess you did not manage to get hold of that either. We certainly hope to get to try it some day.

  7. More cheap and good food – Sibu is a real foodie’s paradise!

    Yes, sure am glad to find all these places and the best thing, of course, they’re nice and at the same time, cheaper too!

  8. Were the chess players gambling?

    I wouldn’t know. How do people bet on chess? Is there a point system or the winner takes it all?

  9. My area, i ever see some Uncle’s playing chess at the market…

    Ever or never? I guess when one’s old, this is one good way to pass the time, keeps the mind thinking.
