They are gone…

That morning, I asked my girl if she would like some yong tofu for breakfast and she said yes so we headed to this shop…

Sing Long Cafe

…located opposite the nursing college…

…to the left of the roundabout somewhere in front of the bak kut teh place…

…at the junction and this coffee shop is at the other end of this same road.

She ordered this set (RM7.00)…

…from this stall there…

I do not know if there are others in town but we do like this one and if we feel like having it, this is always the one we would go to.

My missus had the kampua mee and also the pian sip soup from that stall in front and she liked them very much. The guy was closing shop once and we spotted him fishing out one whole Chinese cabbage from the cauldron with the bone stock. I heard that some do that so the soup/stock will be sweeter and very much nicer. On the way there, I was thinking that I would want those but when we arrived, it appeared to me that the guy was no longer there.

I noticed that the lady presently running the stall was not that familiar and everything there seemed to tell me that she was not in any way related to the guy there before and when I asked her, she confirmed that she was new there and the previous guy had called it a day or gone some place else.

Other than that, I saw that the zhi-char (煮炒/cook and fry) section at the back was no longer there too. The place was vacant so obviously, they too, like the kampua mee guy, had terminated their business or gone some place else.

The very nice roast meat stall

…is still around but it was too early in the morning for me to have that. Funny how I do not mind nasi lemak for breakfast but not chicken or char siew or whatever rice.

In the end, I went to the yong tofu stall and ordered their RM9.50 set…

…and seeing that my girl did not have any stuffed brinjal in hers and knowing how she would love that, I gave her mine.

There was also one stuffed chili in mine…

…and though I love the ones that come with a plate of nasi kerabu

…I can’t say I am all that fond of the one in yong tofu.

All in all, we enjoyed our orders very much – the clear soup was really very good and everything went superbly well with the very nice and spicy sambal belacan dip…

…that was provided.

My missus went to this fried noodles stall…

…at the other side of this coffee shop, behind the Muslim stall which was still closed, probably because of Hari Raya and she had the Sibu Ah Tor-style fried kway teow, wrapped with egg (RM4.00)…

…and she said it was very nice. I saw the photograph of the lor mee at that stall and it looked very good. Perhaps I would want to try that the next time we drop by here.

  1. The fried kway teow wrapped in egg looks so delicious! I only know of the place in Ipoh that serves it like that and have not heard of any in kl yet. For the Yong tofu sets can’t you choose the items you like? Here for the sets they will say 3 pieces for xxx price n 4 pieces for yyy price and the customers can choose the pieces that they like.

    Yes, you can pick the basic set – fish balls and glass noodles, RM6.00 and add on whatever you want, individually priced. I’m not too sure, maybe a bit more expensive that way plus everything at the stall is written in Mandarin and that’s Greek to me.

  2. RM4 for that huge portion of CKT with an egg added is indeed a good deal and it looks so good. Here, CKT with taugeh only cost between 4.00-4.50. My first time seeing yong tofu comes in set. Usually, one can pick and choose what he /she likes in his / her bowl of yong tofu. All in all everything looks great.

    Yes, only here – more convenient, the sets…especially for people who cannot read Mandarin, everything at the stall in the language and maybe a bit cheaper going for the sets like those value meals at the franchise places, just a bit but you do not have a choice.

    Fried noodles, I think, RM4.00 is the standard price these days though some places, it may be more expensive. Was RM3, then RM3.50…now RM4…and no going down, even without GST. Tsk! Tsk!

  3. Love the kway Teow with such egg on top. Only can be found in Sibu I guess. Haha.

    Yong tau fu. Long time didn’t have that but could be pricey.

    Have not heard of any in Kuching – my relatives in Kuching would want to eat this everytime they come to town. Not difficult to cook – just fry the kway teow in the regular way, push aside, break an egg and spread it in the wok. Pick up the kway teow and dump it on the egg before it gets cooked completely. The skill is, of course, getting it all in one piece without it breaking apart.

    Yes, the danger when one can pick and choose like when we used to have that in Penang – one person no less than RM10!

  4. Yeah, come to think of it, like you I have no problems eating nasi lemak for breakfast but not chicken rice! hee..hee…
