I went back to that food court where I had the lor mee the other day but I did not feel like having anything from that same stall so I walked around to see what I could have instead.
The people at this stall…
…seem to imply that they are selling some nyonya stuff but what caught my attention was their char kway teow…with prawns and cockles!
Of course I wanted to try that so I placed my order and took a seat to wait for it to be served (RM7.50)…
While I was waiting, my Facebook friend whom I had never made the acquaintance before, happened to walk past, the one who shared the photograph of the much nicer bowl of lor mee that day. I was surprised that he was able to recognise me – I, of course, had no problem telling who he was as he has shared a lot of his photographs online. We chatted a bit but he was busy and had commitments elsewhere and had to go – it sure was nice to bump into him, small world indeed!
Anyway, back to the plate of kway teow, no, there were more than three prawns…
There were at least two more hidden under the noodles unlike one place here where you will only get three and only three, no more no less, never mind big or small. It is like some kind of trademark.
I liked how the prawns were very fresh and succulent but unfortunately, though there were quite a lot of cockles hidden in the kway teow, they were so tiny, barely visible to the naked eye. However, despite that and the fact that I could not detect any wok hei fragrance, I thought the kway teow tasted great – you really can’t go wrong with prawns (and cockles).
Of course, I would be back again – I might try something else from this stall or the previous one and I spotted another stall that might be of interest to me – the photographs look interesting but everything is in Mandarin so I would have to go and ask to see if there is anything I fancy the next time I am here.
GRAND WONDERFUL FOOD COURT (2.309601, 111.845163) is located along Jalan Pipit, off Jalan Dr Wong Soon Kai, on your left just before the Petronas petrol station a short distance from Delta Mall. You can also go in via Lorong Pipit 4, turning left into the lane at the junction where Starbucks Sibu is located and go straight ahead from there.
