Been waiting…

Ever since I was here…

…that morning for the kampua mee and liver soup, I had been waiting to get the chance to drop by the coffee shop again to get to eat what they dish out at this stall…

…there. It has been around for a long long time and I’ve heard fave reviews about the food and finally, last Friday, there were lots of parking spaces available (probably because it was a public holiday in Malaysia) so I grabbed the chance and had lunch there.

It looked like they had all their fish coated with batter and pre-deep fried…

…and I did ask what flour they used. The boy told me it was shu-fun, whatever that is – possibly mùshǔ fěn (木薯粉) or in English, tapioca flour, not miànfěn (麵粉/wheat flour) so I guess my girl would be able to eat that should we come here with her to eat. She was not with us that day as she was out with her friends.

I saw some people having their stewed pork…

…with the intestines and what not and it looked really good but it was a Friday so I did not order that. I guess it will have to wait till another day.

We had the bitter gourd omelette…

…which was so very good, nicer than elsewhere, I would say. I don’t know why but don’t we have the same chicken eggs at home? How come the omelette we cook is not as nice?

I asked for the sweet and sour fish (RM20.00)…

…an ikan bawal hitam/or chio (black pomfret) and yes, it was very good, not like the one we had here recently.

The total for the food and rice was RM29.00 – it was cheaper at this other place but I do think what we had here tasted a little bit nicer and I sure would not mind coming back here again another day…if I can find a place to park my car, that is.

SYARIKAT KIONG CHUONG CAFE (2.291062, 111.827381) is located along Jalan Kampung Nyabor at the bend where one turns into Brooke Drive, a stone’s throw from Malaysia Hotel in the next block.

Ancient relic but very young at heart. Enjoys food and cooking...and travelling and being with friends.

  1. The bulk of the total price is due to the fish which is understandable as fish is expensive. I think they use more oil to cook the omelette than the amount of oil you used at home so that’s why theirs tastes better.

    I wouldn’t know, so very fragrant. Maybe they’ve a stronger fire. The fish here is reasonably priced, just a stall in a coffee shop – would be a lot more expensive at the bigger restaurants.

  2. The price of black pomfret at Stutong Market is RM26/kg. Just bought one yesterday. Bittergourd omelette, sweet & sour fish looks so good. Both are my favourite.

    Oh dear!!! You’re lucky to be able to get any, no fish, no prawns. That is either because of the current bad weather…or they are hoarding it all for Chinese New Year. 😦

  3. There must be a professional secret to cooking the omelette with bitter gourd!

    Possibly. Otherwise, why would anyone want to order omelette outside? Can always fry one’s own at home. Nice with Chinese sausage and onions too.

  4. I remember a tea that was fermented in bitter gourds that I tried a while back and enjoyed!

    Yes, bitter gourd tea has quite a following, good for health but I’ve never tried it as a drink myself. 😛

  5. I love the bittergourd omelette and sweet sour fish. These 2 is good enough for me.

    That’s all we had. Friday, we would abstain from meat…if we can. 😉
