I said I would go and try their mee goreng (Malay fried noodles) but I changed my mind when I got there and I never got down to doing that since.
Well, the other morning, I stopped by again and I did not feel like having anything in that coffee shop nor the one next door so I decided I would give their mee goreng special (RM7.00)…
…a try, at long last!
Yes, I would say the noodles tasted great but no, they were not the same as the old lady’s here – I think I would prefer the latter a lot more. The special over at the other side had a bit of masak hitam beef and one fried chicken wing for RM6.00 plus a ringgit more if you want a fried egg as well.
Here, in their special, they were very generous with the chicken nuggets…
…and you would also get one fried egg…
…too. The egg was perfectly fried the traditional way, in a wok…with its beautiful golden fringe and its egg yolk still runny, exactly the way I would love it.
Yes, I would say that even though this was not as nice as the one at that other place, it was more than just okay and besides, if you are in this area of shops around the mall, you would be hard-pressed to try and find something halal (suitable for Muslims), only at this stall in this coffee shop and there is a roti canai stall (if it is still open) at one on the other side (facing the Methodist church) unless you go for something from Colonel Sanders or from that Taiwanese chicken franchise inside the mall or from our Sarawak’s own franchise over at the other side and those do not open till at least 10.00 a.m.
It sure looked like this one has its following too. While I was there enjoying my order, somebody came and ordered a takeaway – it was the same at the aforementioned old lady’s stall too. I also noticed a lot of people tapao-ing her noodles and nasi lemak and one more thing that I would add about this one here in its favour is that the serving I got was really huge and it was quite a struggle for me to finish all of it – in fact, it could be shared by two and there would be enough to go round.
