Mong Seng Kopitiam for some authentic Hee Kiaw Noodle @ Melaka

#sycookiesxmelaka

 

The coffee shop operates till late night, the only one lit along the street. On darker and colder nights, steams and lights from inside the shop and near the corridor at where a hawker cart is showcasing the Hee Kiaw is all that is visible from where parking is aplenty on the opposite road. The majority of items are less than RM 10 a bowl– you’ll get some spare change back when you order any of the noodle type, dry or soup, thick kuey tiao or yellow mee, bee hoon or even without the noodles if you choose to go with their tau kee alone instead. There is no hor fun noodles (I think), which is great because hor fun is only great and can only be fantastic as chicken hor fun. Sure, they are a lot chewier than kuey Tiaw, but it certainly isn’t going to replace kuey tiaw in certain dishes, especially in this case- it is going to be super clumpy put into dry hee kiaw noodle.

 

Unable to choose between yellow mee or kuey tiao, I went with mix of both. It’s an efficient operation, there’s no table service, customers order at the cooking station and the food comes to your table at lightning speed. A big bowl of noodle comes with basic fish cake slices, fish balls, and thick cut of smoky char siew. Sprinkled with fried shallots and topped with a generous dollop of chili sauce, with optional additional pieces of tau kee and assorted fish paste parcels, this shouldn’t be a supper portion at all. Take note the chili is a traditional sop for years so unless asked to opt out during when you order, you are getting the chili whether you like it or not. The chili though, was lovely if not great. Slightly briny from the shrimp or seafood alike ingredient that I believe was added onto it. Could be fish sauce, and while the saltiness isn’t to my liking, it’s hard to complain when you can get a decent meal for less than a tenner. Especially when the fish ball noodle and taukee pieces were so decently delicious.

Yu Jiao Me (Melaka)

 

When it comes to food, it is almost impossible to pick the best. Only what’s best to you or what’s best to her or him. Food is always subjective and there can never be right or wrong. I do however have an issue when business owners serve food without passion. And when a business runs for decades, there must be beauty in it whether you see it or not. Yu jiao Me is one that has expertly withstood the test of time for whatever reasons it is. I like it that it is simple and modest, and auntie is friendly. Smiles are everywhere and whatever plays on their choice of FM accompanies your meal time. Only a handful of choices available from both the stalls within the coffee shop – noodles or rice. Skipping rice this time around, we put noodles to our table. Egg noodle in wantan new was decently good without lumping and with no sticky starch coating the strands of noodle, and tasty char siew meat quite almost a little smoky in aroma, but really lack the vegetables. It seriously got me wondering as to why they are even bothered to even go through the trouble to put the two leaves onto the noodle? Laksa on the other hand didn’t appeal to me. It does deliver on this much-loved classic: the big, deep bowl has a rich broth, a good measure of coconut creaminess, puffy tofu, a good handful of beansprout and a nice warm hit of chilli that won’t break your taste buds mainly because of the heavy dose of sugar. I wish there were more kick to the laksa broth. They throw in fish balls and charsiew which would also appear in the rest of the noodle items on the menu but that’s good because it will then be fresh all the time.

I wouldn’t mind eating here out of convenient but to return on purpose would have to take more than just comfort wantan noodle and their overly sweet laksa.

There is a really delicious fish ball noodle just right next to this one called the Oriental Noodle. Anyone could probably tell who wins the heart of noodle lovers, just by looking at the crowd in both this side by side coffee shop.

Pork Rendang Nasi Kerabu at ANTE @ Solaris Dutamas

 

Celebrating patriotism with Pork Rendang Nasi Kerabu .Love it or hate it, this vibrant blue rice leaves a memorable impression upon the first sight. It is not unusual to see one but it is rare, and when spotted one, will be difficult to take your eyes off it. Served with ulam, the mix of flavour profile from the assorted raw vegetables that is being cut and chopped into tiny pieces puts together so much excitement on a single plate. Here at ANTE, kerabu meal is prep with some oink factor and the main protein source in this fiber and vitamin loaded portion meal is of course non other than their signature – pork. They celebrate patriotism this year with kerabu with pork rendang and I must say they are indeed some porky doyen when it comes to handling and serving them fresh in your dishes.

That is further confirmed when they rolled out other pork dishes and there’s absolutely a couple of it that was impressive. Pork come in all forms of cooking method—roasted, grilled, or even some frying until sizzling, with some being quintessential pork lover’s fav and some fusion twist that’ll guarantee salivating. And together with some booze, would be another perfect evening. Chermoula Spiced Pork Shoulder Steak was grilled so perfectly for amazing tenderness I will order this again anytime with add ons of more vegetables, not because I simply want my vege but because I also love their zucchini sides. Iberico Baby Ribs and House Smoked Bacon were charming. Meat is incredibly tender rand juicy, every bite tastes like luxury.

Soon Soon Pan Mee & Fish Head Noodle @ Mutiara Damansara

 

With those mismatched tables and plastic chairs for seats, this newly expanded coffee shop space is loud, crowded and unrefined- just the way many of us would enjoy a comfort meal before casual trendy gossips and news- both fake or real. This isn’t a newbie in town but the recent expansion means a lot to some of their hardcore fan. Many are drawn into Soon Soon Pan Mee and fish head noodle by the reputation, and there is not a time of day when a crowd can’t be spotted outside, lining up or waiting for a table. Most come with family and larger group. Now with a bigger space means more seats and tables hence it is now shorter time in the line, so scene as such is possibly no longer visible.

 

 

It is almost not necessary to look at the menu when you are here, you’ll find everyone else sorta eating the same couple of dishes, and you should too: they are famous for making the best fish head noodle within this area. You’ll spot a bowl of glistening noodle dish on almost every table. Unlike typical fish head noodle, the broth here is slightly starchy and has what’s close to broth-like consistency. Each spoonful delivers soup made from rich stock that’s umami with a hind of sweet tang from the tomatoes and the pickled mustard green. Soup is thick also because of yam chucks that contributes a little starch to the texture of the soup. While it is not merely about the soup, each pieces of fillet were thick, cuboidal and fried correctly for sufficient crisp on the outside and moist juicy on the inside. The deep fried also helps lock the flavor of fish from within so it compliments the noodles in the soup.

Skip the pan mee and char chan teng breakfast all together cause why waste your quota on those when you can have the delicious fish head noodle? Of course, unless if you are not a fan of fish head noodle of which if so then you shouldn’t even bother visiting this shop then. They do however bring some nostalgic memories to the root of local coffee shop menu. Eggs are always fresh, I would order the half-boiled eggs every single time and they never fail me.

Restoran Hua Mui @ Johor

Restoran Hua Mui @ Johor , Are they still the best in 2018?

 

Although it may, at first glance, seem a particularly right choice to hop on the bandwagon and just go right ahead with most websites raving and claiming how Restoran Hua Mui is the must visit when in Johor Bahru (JB), I for one disagree after this visit. And the continuous crowd and line became an unexplained occurrence and scene that baffled every single one of us, more so especially after our visit.

 

 

Coffee isn’t really the most amazing though it could be one of the best in consistency within this proximity, toast seemed ordinary with nothing much to rave about, and signature noodle simply wasn’t impressive to warrant a return even with a secured seat reserved ahead. I would beg to differ however, if anyone would totally have claimed that no one should be visiting and patronising the business, and I’m not saying they are lousy in anyway. With integrity accumulated from the years of operation, the business runs with great if not an obsessive attention to detail, passion, and quality of ingredients that perfectly reflects the multi-racial and culture of the local people. Anyone – local or foreign – can come here and taste a bit of the cultures that make up Malaysia. The typical kopitiam fare that most Malaysians and Singaporeans are very familiar with- toast and half boiled eggs, maybe the only thing that’s satisfying if higher grade of butter were to accompany the kaya for the buns or toasts. Upon the fall of that perfectly cooked half boiled eggs as it’s cracked open, you know they score when it comes to freshness. Every egg lover would be enticed the moment it falls like a droplet of wabbly dollop without breaking the yolk.

Older practice and breakfast culture in kopitiam might have been improvised and probably transited to the revamped spaces, but this place speak through its offerings. Despite being over rated, it doesn’t change the fact that they offer comfort and that is more than just the execution of their business profile so anyone seeking comfort flavour of home cooking, try the Hainanese Chicken Chop. Then again, you can totally skip this if you are limited by the amount of calorie input because there’s something fancier around the corner. It is, after all the taste of nostalgia. But, travellers hankering for local food will find satisfying experience here for sure.

There is a whole lamb marinated in a secret blend of spices and roasted to golden perfection and at the same time an unlimited dibs at the selection of their international spread.
