Still there…

The last time I dropped by this coffee shop was in 2017…

e-cafe

…and that same lady running the kampua mee stall in front then is still there…

Gee!!! She must be doing something right to last this long! That morning, not even 6.30 a.m. yet, there were a lot of old guys there, having a drink and sitting and chatting and a couple of parents stopping by with their school-going kids for breakfast.

I had the the kampua-kway teow combo the last time I was there and I thought that, at best, it was o.k. and I guess that was why I never went back for more.

Well, this time around, I had the kampua mee (RM3.00)…

…and the pian sip, dry (RM3.00)…

…and I don’t know if after all this time, she had improved or I was hungry as I had not had breakfast that morning but I thought both of them were very nice.

I liked the complimentary soup too – it had a light ginger taste and I put some of the pian sip in it…

…to bring it up to a whole new level. I noticed at some of the places where I had wanton mee in the peninsula, they served the wantons in the soup but of course, the taste is quite different, and the texture of the skin too despite the fact that they look similar and they’re both meat dumplings.

Since it is 20 sen cheaper than that very popular place at the other end of this same block of shops, RM3.20 there – both are nice and both are very near my house – it sure makes a lot more sense to come here to eat or to buy home. Incidentally, I saw something at the stall that aroused my interest – chili and sour mee.  I think I will drop by again one of these days to give that a try.

e-CAFE (2.311913, 111.846213) is the first shop right behind Delta Mall, Jalan Pedada – the block a little to your left if you are coming out of the mall via the back entrance.

Ancient relic but very young at heart. Enjoys food and cooking...and travelling and being with friends.

  1. I sure wouldn’t mind having this kampua mee and piansip since the price is good and you say the taste is good. What is sour mee? I am curious to find out.

    Curiosity kills the cat! LOL!!!

  2. If me, I won’t be as adventurous as you to try the chilli and sour mee but then again if you don’t try you will never know what is it. So let me know the verdict soon as I am curious like the others.

    My good friend/ex-classmate, Robert, was telling about some very nice belacan kampua too – yet to go and try! I’ve tried tom yam kampua, pandan kampua…nothing to get excited about.
