Our local kopitiam

I am glad that Malaysia has many nice eateries around, be it high end or economical. We are never tired of exploring good food around, and it does taste better with the right partner around =)
I have managed to explore 2 local kopitiam which has been around in town for many years, and i found the food to be awesomely delicious!
Jalan Ipoh kopitiam
the row of shop next to the mosque at Jalan Ipoh,
near Sungei Mas building, Jalan Ipoh

some local beverage for our brunch

Wantan Mee - RM4.30 (Medium)
I was actually quite surprised with the quality of this wantan mee. Springy noodle and the charsiew was quite tender. The most interesting part was they used pork lard! So this is their little secret for such a humble dish....
We went here twice and he ordered twice!

This kopitiam has a stall that sells Teochew style porridge and noodles, with ingredients such as lala, fish balls, and a few kinds of fish (MaYao, ikan bawal and etc)
I ordered MaYao noodle soup
Like this very much, very clear soup, sweet as well, and i doubt whether they added any oil in it!
Fish meat was fresh too....
Very suitable for girls on diet like me...haha....

Restoran Mee Yoke Lim @ Chow Yang SS2, PJ

Busy saturday with big crowds around

The famous Prawn Mee - RM4.00
Right kick of spiciness in the soup, and thick broth as well
But overall was a normal Prawn noodle for both of us.....
nothing extraordinary indeed....

There is a stall selling Penang Char Kuay Teow and we decided to try, and it turned out to be a right decision!
Huge shrimp, full of wok-hei...the right Penang version that we seldom see in town...
I am definitely giving thumbs up for this!

Craved for popiah so i ordered this, and the minimum order is 2 pieces, at RM1.50 per piece!
A very good tactic in doing business ehh?
But it was only averageeeeeeeeee!

I know there are many good local kopitiam around which serves good and affordable foods...will definitely explore it!

  1. Hey, looking at the picture of coffee...reminds me a lot of our old kopitiam. Till now, I still prefer our traditional shop, and sad that the taste won't be coming back...
