I was in the vicinity of this coffee shop again the other morning so I decided to try the Malay/Muslim stall to see if there was anything good.
The nice lady has the usual fried stuff – mee (noodles), bihun (rice vermicelli) and kway teow (flat rice noodles), nasi lemak (coconut rice) and nasi ayam penyet (clobbered chicken rice)…and I think she has nasi campur (mixed rice) come lunchtime.
I remember the kway teow goreng (fried) we had from the Muslim stall here…
…was very nice so I ordered that to see if the one here was any good.
It looked all right (RM3.50)…
…and tasted all right too but then again, the fried kway teow elsewhere, never mind if it is at a Chinese or a Muslim stall, is all right too…and for that same price, the one I mentioned earlier came with one fried egg but that was in 2016 – with the escalating prices of things these days, I would not be at all surprised if it costs more now.
I would give due credit to the lady for not using a plastic or melamine plate (though the complimentary chicken soup came in a striking pink plastic bowl) but what pushed the one here a cut above the rest was the sambal…
Boy! It was so very nice, spicy and nice and with that, I truly enjoyed my plate of kway teow…
…to the max. I sure would not mind having that again the next time I drop by here and I certainly would ask for more of that so very delightful sambal!

I like my char kway teow with lots of taugeh. Over here, char kway teow with only taugeh cost 4 -4.50, with ingredients will be 5.00-5.50.
I remember a mobile stall at Padungan (just like the one at Cloud Estate, Green Road) near Longhouse Hotel. We used to go there to tapao, 50 sen only…char kway teow goh kak, kway teow chay chay, tau geh chay chay, nui chay chay…and the man would retort lu lang air goh kak any tua kah? So funny! I’m just ok with taugeh, too much may trigger a gout attack, high content of protein.
Prices of things escalating here too!
It’s the same everywhere, I guess. Sighhh!!!
wonder if they made the sambal themselves – maybe that’s the x-factor that elevated it! 😀
I’m also happy when I see places using reusable crockery and cutlery. It’s odd that it has gotten to a stage where it is no longer the norm.
