A little bit later on…

7.30 a.m. on Monday morning, I was at the car wash – as they say, it’s the early bird that catches the worm. By around 8.00 a.m., I was done so I went round looking for something I could enjoy for my late breakfast.

I ended up at this food court, thinking that I would be able to go for the roast duck/siew yoke kampua mee

…but unfortunately, though the stall was open, there was nothing in the glass display cabinet. Perhaps I should have gone a little bit later as it was too early and the roast meats had not arrived yet (obviously they do not do the roasting and cooking there) and the young guy there was busy getting the stall ready.

The beef noodles stall was not open either and the Seremban guy was nowhere to be seen. Probably they and a few other stalls had taken the day off but looking at the photographs at the stall and the things on the latter’s menu, it sure looked like the guy had added a lot of things to his list of things that are available now. I saw Hakka mee in the list and I remember the very nice one I had at Yi Poh in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan…

I really must make it a point to drop by a little bit later on one of these days to give it a try!

In the end, I decided to order the fish balls soup…

…from the stall to the right of the Lok Lok stall in this section of the food court…

that they proudly declare are their own homemade with mackerel (bay kar/ikan tenggiri), no less.

As you can see in the photograph, there were not many people at the time after I had placed my order and gone to take my seat at a table and wait. Within minutes, a little bit later on, the place was full!

Perhaps it was an optical illusion but the fish balls looked big in the photographs I took…

…and the ones on display at the stall whereas in actual fact, they were flat, about the size of a 20-sen coin. I thought they were a bit over-beaten/whipped so it was a little too bouncy (QQ) for my liking. There could be no denying that lovely mackerel taste and flavour in the delightful soup though and I sure enjoyed it to the max.

A bowl of the soup is priced at RM10.00 and add an extra RM1.00, you can have your pick of any kind of noodles you prefer. Of course, I went for the tang hoon (glass noodles)…

…and that was good!

There were bits of minced meat in the soup but no minced meat balls like the ones in what I had here

…not too long ago. The fish flavour was not that strong in that one but then again, it was only RM6.50 a bowl, so much cheaper and I would say, it was much nicer too (plus there was no parking fee in the vicinity)!

Of course, I shall be back here again soon but I’d try something else, the Seremban guy’s Hakka mee perhaps, not this fish balls soup, not at that kind of price, especially.
