Let’s try…

I dropped by here…

Kiing Huat Kopitiam

…the other morning. It has been around for quite sometime – ever since some of the shops in that area started to open for business and I did see quite a lot of people there. The food court in front does not open very early, talk about the early bird catching the worm, but anyway, I wasn’t planning on going there. So far, I have not heard anybody saying anything about this coffee shop so I thought I would just go there and try.

This guy…

Yew cha koi guy

…was selling yew cha koi/yeu tiau (Chinese crullers) at his stall in front and I ordered one (RM1.00)…

…to try. Unfortunately, it was not anything like those that I grew up eating, the taste and the texture and I thought the ones I bought before from the old couple here were much nicer.

I went to the kampua mee stall at the shop…

…and ordered the kampua mee

…with mackerel fish ball soup set (RM8.00)…

The noodles were all right and so was the soup, just that I thought RM8.00 was a bit on the high side. At most places, you can get the set for RM6.00 but then again, usually, they will not give any meat with the noodles.

By the time I finished eating, a few of the other stalls were already open – perhaps I shall drop by again another day to see what they have to offer but when I do, I guess I will have to come a little bit later – it certainly looks to me like the worms don’t get up and about so early these days.

KIING HUAT KOPITIAM (2.301323, 111.843642) is located among the shops along Jalan Dr Wong Soon Kai in the vicinity of Gafu Supermarket, behind Kim Hock Premier Food Court to the right of the newly-opened Nam Heong Ipoh.
