An ex-student of mine suggested that I went here…

Leong Hock Cafe

…right across the road from this restaurant, to try their kampua mee and very early on Sunday morning, I decided to do just that.

It turned out to be another ex-student’s shop, his family’s business – the mum manned the kampua mee stall…

…while his dad ran the drinks business. There are two other stalls, one is a Malay/Muslim stall, I think, but it was not open that morning and there is a chu-char place at the back but I did not go and check what they have to offer.

The kopi-o-peng

Kopi o peng

…was good, RM1.80 like most places elsewhere and I thought the pian sip (meat dumplings) soup…

Pian sip soup

…was all right too, just that it was RM2.50 a bowl. Elsewhere, when I ordered the small, it would only be RM2.00. I did not count the number of dumplings though so I would not know whether one would be getting a couple more here or not.

The kampua mee

Kampua mee

…was nice too, very original/authentic but I would not say that there was anything in it that made it stand out above the rest and at RM3.20, same as this very popular coffee shop here, it is more expensive than most by 20 sen and there are places where one can get a nice bowl of the noodles for even less.

I would give them due credit for not using any plastic plates or bowls and I guess they do have their followers as there were quite a lot of people dropping by for the noodles even though it was so early in the morning on a Sunday.
