Your best…

…may not necessarily be the same as my best. Like I always say, to each his own. After all, everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion.

When I blogged about the very nice mee sua (longevity noodles) in the traditional Foochow red wine chicken soup that I had here, an ex-student of mine went to try and he placed it as his No. 2 so I asked him which one would be his No. 1 and he said the one here…

I was there around the end of last year and had their pian sip kampua that I thought was good and the pian sip was big and had a lot of meat in it. The very instant I shared the link to that post on Facebook, somebody commented that it was the best kampua mee in town. Ah well! I would agree to some extent but there are a whole lot of others who would insist that what they have had elsewhere are the best. In fact, there have been some that people praised to the skies but when I went to try, I thought they were quite mediocre, dunno what the excitement was all about. Ah well, as the saying goes, one man’s meat is another man’s poison.

That morning, the moment I stepped into that coffee shop, a guy greeted me. He used to be a teacher at a private secondary school and later, he opened his own art school while his wife was running a cake shop at Rejang Park and was later employed by a leading hotel in town…and out of the blue, he was operating a stall selling fried kway teow with see ham (cockles) and or chian (oyster omelette) at Chopsticks. Now, he and his wife are here…

…but I had already placed my order for the mee sua (RM5.50)…

Yes, it was nice…

…though a bit too red for my liking. I did blog about how to go about getting the meat and soup so red here so you can click the link to go and see if you are thus inclined.

It was cheaper than most elsewhere though, by 50 sen and though there was no egg, no shitake mushroom, there were 3 pieces of chicken…

Usually, you would get only 2.

For some reason, it did taste a little different from the rest, the ones that I like, not necessarily better – just different but yes, it would be good enough if you happen to be in the vicinity and are thinking of having mee sua but I sure would not bother going out of my way to go for it especially considering that the area is always so congested and finding a place to park can be quite impossible.

The guy at the aforementioned stall suggested parking at the basement car park at the mall down the road and walking over. WALK!!!??? Makan free, is it? Otherwise, no, thank you. LOL!!!

KING CAFE (2.291589, 111.826200) is located right next to the RH Hotel, at the corner of the Jalan Kampung Nyabor and Jalan Sanyan/Causeway junction.
