Change my mind…

My girl wanted the sambal bihun that she enjoyed very much here that day so of course, I took her there.

I went in search of the mee sua in traditional red wine chicken soup that I would rank among the best in town but it was all sold out.

In the meantime, my girl went with her mum to place their orders and I did not know what happened along the way but it seemed that she had changed her mind and she ended up having the tom yam hung ngang (big bihun) from one of the stalls instead (RM8.00)…

The mum declared that she had it before, praising it to the skies and insisted it was really very good and kept saying repeatedly that they made their own bay kar /ikan tenggiri (mackerel) fish balls and so on and so forth.

It did smell very good…

…but halfway through, I noticed that my girl was struggling away already – maybe it was because it was a rather huge serving for her to manage so I just asked her not to force herself and just finish off all the added ingredients and leave everything else behind.

The mum herself had the sambal kway teow (RM5.50)…

…from the fried bihun stall with a special request for it to be extra spicy…

…and it came with the wok-fried egg that sure looked perfectly done on top. It was quite obvious that the kway teow was indeed really spicy as while the boy was frying the dish, we could hear a lot of people in the coffee shop sneezing away. Of course it was very much to her liking and she enjoyed it to the max.

I also ended up ordering from that same stall, something new on their menu – the Happiness macaroni (RM5.00)…

…they called it. I would say it was much nicer that the one I had here a long time ago and I do prefer this bigger version…

…to those that look like the rubber tubes in bicycle tyres. On the whole, I would say it was all right – it had its own texture and I was thinking that I probably would enjoy it a lot more if there had been more added ingredients, prawns and squids perhaps – never mind that one would have to fork out more for it…or if I had requested for it to be extra spicy as well like my missus’ fried kway teow.

  1. The happiness macaroni looks good. I wouldn’t mind trying it.

    It was all right, has its own texture. Would probably be nicer with added ingredients and chili. As it was, I do prefer fried kway teow.

  2. Char Kway Teow and Macaroni for me anytime. Tom Yum looks so fiery red. All the servings looks huge too.

    Used to fry macaroni char kway teow style when in the UK in 1994, no kway teow there – somehow, everything tasted nicer there, maybe it’s the weather.

  3. Wow! Spicy day that day with your family huh? Hung ngang looked fiery and the kway Teow extra spicy.

    The fried macaroni reminded me of a stall in King’s Centre. Used to serve nice fried macaroni. That time, not many serve macaroni that way. But no longer there.

    Sugar Bun has it on their menu – personally, I thought it was so-so, nothing to get excited about.

  4. Tom yam looks spicy and oily to me. Fried macaroni is so special. Good pick!

    It wasn’t spicy but looking at the photos, it did look rather oily, didn’t think so at the time – must be the reflection.

  5. The macaroni looks good…

    The fried macaroni I usually see here is from the Malay stall in pasar malam who is hmmmm….

    Oh? I do not know any other place here other than this one…and Sugar Bun, our Sarawak’s own fast food franchise.

  6. Tom Yam Hung Ngang indeed huge serving. But looks oily.
    Char Kuey Teow & Macaroni looks good. Sometimes we do eat that fried macaroni at home.

    I never fried pasta, Asian style at home. My girl would frown at it – she’s a purist, pasta must be western, no other way.
