One thing about Facebook is that you may be reminded of things a long time ago via its memories feature. The other day, a photograph of my favourite kampua mee from here popped out of nowhere and of course, I made up my mind to go and eat it that very morning.
The lady had closed shop owing to personal reasons and I sure was delighted when she emerged again here. Of course, I went to enjoy her noodles a number of times before this COVID-19 thing. Unfortunately, when I got to the coffee shop that morning, she was not there. The guy running the coffee shop said that she had not resumed business and he did not know whether she would be back or not. Oh dear!!! Don’t tell me I’ve lost my favorite kampua mee place yet once again!
Disappointed, I made my way here for the nasi lemak…
…another thing that I had not eaten since the lockdown started.
I asked for the sambal sotong (squid sambal)…
…to be added and the nice lady boss gave me a bit of her rendang kerang (cockles rendang)…
…on the house to try.
That sure was good. I guess the kampua mee will have to wait till another day – hopefully, the lady will show up eventually.
KOPI KOPI Café & Kitchen is located at the blocks of shops, at the back facing Bandong Walk (2.313869, 111.825808) and the main road.

Oh cockles rendang, interesting, will like to try that.
I prefer her chicken rendang.
I am sure your Kampua lady will reappear soon. Give her a call. :p
About the extra rendang kerang on the house (so generous), it sure looks yummy from here.
Have never tried rendang kerang though. Usually just sambal.
I should have asked the guy at the coffee shop if he called her and whether she will be coming back or not.
Now you see me now you don’t apply to the kampua lady. Hopes she will reappear soon. The nasi lemak looks good especially the cockles rendang. May I know whether the nasi lemak is lemak enough to your standard.
Yalor! Like Chipsmore! This one is among my favourites in town, lemak but could be more lemak. My former favourite isn’t that lemak anymore – that is why I do not go there these days…but it’s still good.
Somehow I can’t get my head around rendang kerang. I would very much prefer chicken or beef rendang.
I would agree with you on this. The lady’s chicken rendang is very good, her beef did not tickle my fancy as she would cut the meat into tiny bits, not the way I like it.
i won’t say no to rendang kerang! a nice change from sambal kerang 😉
I can’t remember how I ate kerang other than boiling and eating it dipped in sambal. I think they do fry it with soy sauce and serai and lengkuas and what not at the shops too.
I hope the kampua mee shop owner will be back soon. So nice of the lady to let you try her rendang kerang. Looks good leh
Yes, I hope so. Will be very sad if she decides not to go on. Welcome back! Have not seen you around for a long time!
Nasi lemak looked good. So nice of the lady. Bet the rendang kerang was delicious. I never tasted such.
Hope your favourite kampua lady would be back to action soon.
Fingers crossed. I was not into the kerang rendang so much, I prefer meat rendang. Probably would be nicer with the nasi lemak sambal.
I try to stay off Facebook but I appreciate those pop-up memories too.
I do browse through those every day. May come across some interesting ones sometime, good to refresh one’s good memories.
