Close to you…

I saw some people…

At Bandong Walk
*The above photograph is blurred on purpose “to protect the innocent”. LOL!!!*

…buying the kuehs here and going over to the Bandong Walk hawker stalls close by to enjoy them with the very nice coffee/drinks from the stall there, just a few steps away. No, I did not do that even though I did buy quite a lot of stuff from there that morning.

I tried the mi goreng (fried mee/noodles) from this lady…

Noodles stall

…there before and yes, I did enjoy it.

This time around, I decided to try her kway teow goreng (fried flat rice noodles)…

Kway teow goreng

…and I did enjoy it as well. There was quite a lot of chicken in it but personally, for fried kway teow, for no particular reason, I would very much prefer shrimps and sotong (squid) and maybe, cockles even instead of meat.

That was RM4.00, the same as at most chu char places around town and considering that this is just a roadside stall, nothing fancy, I had expected it to be a bit cheaper. The sign says mee kampua RM3.00 and somebody told me that would be for the kosong (no meat), RM4.00 for the noodles with meat. Hmmm…I think I’d give it a miss, thank you very much.

This noodle stall is located at Bandong Walk, Jalan Bandong, beside the drinks stall to the immediate right of The NASI LEMAK BANDONG WALK stall (2.313869, 111.825808) somewhere in front of the block of shops where Mastura Delite and the what-was-formerly-known-as the 1Malaysia clinic are.

  1. The fried kuey teow with shrimps is so called Penang style they said wor… I am okay with chicken or beef, never seen the lamb version tho. I still prefer the one with chinese sausage. Haha!

    Unfortunately, this place is halal so no lap cheong and you can’t even bring your own. My friend shared on Facebook yesterday, very nice char kway teow in Cheras but no lap cheong so I suggested that when she goes again, she can bring her own – and her own made ones are simply the best, very special, not so hard and wine-infused. She says she brings some when going for claypot chicken rice.

  2. Even without cockles or sotong in the fried kway teow, I am ok with it. I do like mine with chicken meat, shrimp and lots of taugeh or greens.

    There’s taugeh and greens in this one but no shrimps. Shrimps will add to the taste and bring it to a whole new level unlike sotong which is quite bland and if they have cockles here, it is usually the canned ones, not something I would like.

  3. I am OK having fried koay teow with chicken instead of seafood. At RM4.00, so worth it!

    Well, at least it was nice so I guess that’s what matters the most.

  4. If it is fried on order and not prefried, then that price is ok. Roadside stalls and non-airconded coffee shops mostly charge the same price nowadays.

    Oh? Well, this is fried on order…but I did hear that the rent for the stalls here is very cheap, only RM200 a month unlike elsewhere and in the coffee shops, some around RM800 a month.

  5. If I go to any Malay fried stall, I would go for fried meehoon. Not so much on kway teow or yellow noodle.

    Bandong, been there once for steamboat and bbq in one of the roadside stalls.

    Steamboat? That would be one of the shops – they’ve done up the place very nicely now, got a roof…like India Street. Their YB is very good, very pro-active.

    I usually go for their mee mamak but their kway teow and bihun can be good too. Depends on the place.

  6. fried kuih teow is never complete without cockles

    Gotta go slow on those now especially over at your side. Word has it that those from the straits are highly contaminated. Eat at your own risk!

  7. with chicken meat, halal version like this lah! 🙂 ..

    for me, i want my char kuey teow with lap cheong 😛

    Yes, Malay stall. You are just like my friend, Annie. See my reply to Henry above.

  8. are great cockles as nearly impossible to find in char kuey teow nowadays in sibu as they are in kl? 🙂

    Not nearly. I would say impossible, never see cockles in char kway teow here but it may be a blessing in disguise…seeing how they may be contaminated and also the high cholesterol content and what not. Can live without them.

  9. Ha ha. I try to take photos without people in them too. None of my business to show who is where when 😉

    They may be people who will not want to be seen outside during office hours, gotta respect their privacy.
