Soooo, after our meal at 8Haus – 8haus @ Jalan Sin Chew Kee – Pork ribs da bomb!, as we were heading back to our car, we noticed the house directly opposite us – House no. 9, had lots of people outside, sitting and eating and yapping away. The ‘kepochi’ in me made an appearance and I was intrigued. The crowd certainly was not the crowd you would see at an Open House or any other personal events, nope, the crowd here consisted of just normal day to day people simple having a meal during their lunch break.
Sooo, I went to investigate lah ….
This sure was something different. So, there is a house – house no. 9 and on the driveway of that house, there is a stall 🙂 Cool, ey? This stall offers Wantan Noodles, Laksa, Soup Noodles, fishballs, dumplings and etc. They seemed to be doing well for lunch. They had about 4,5 tables around and it was all occupied and when those occupants leave, the empty tables were replaced within minutes. I assume that most of their customers are repeat customers? I made that conclusion based on the communication between the stall owners and the customers. They seem to know almost everyone.
Wantan Noodle – Dry (Regular), 5.50 ringgit
The noddles were in its simplest form, it did not have fancy taste and etc. It does however give you what you want and in this case, a plate of filling wan tan noodles. You would most probably not see this in the list of Top 10 Best Wan Tan Noodles in KL, highly likely not. This is one of those simple establishments that offer simple, good food for the day to day working folks in the area. For 5.50 ringgit, the serving was pretty generous, lots of noodles with some pork meat. It comes with dumpling soup on the side and I like the dumplings. The dumplings were good – filled with meat and tasted awesome.
There were predominantly 2 types of folks visiting this house/stall – the oldies and the younger working adults. The working adults come and go while the oldies sit for a good hours or so just chatting about random stuff.
Some eateries you go to, the food is soo utterly delicious that it speaks for itself and then there are other where the food is okay, not bad but add it the environment, location, ambiance and the overall feel – yea, these factors elevate the overall food experience from okay to good/ Yup, this stall falls under the latter category. I will certainly pay this stall a visit again, planning to give their Curry Laksa a try. That is not the only reason why I am returning. I liked how welcomed I felt when I visited. A lot of times, when you visit an eatery the first time, they dont really pay much attention to you, especially when they have a big number of returning customers, the first timers are often forgotten. Here though, the guy took time to chat and tell us to come back and give his other dishes a try. It was a nice feel 🙂 Plus, watching the group of oldies yapping and laughing and simply enjoying themselves were a treat by itself. I did also mention that I like the whole place, ambiance and etc right, so yea. Need I say more?
Would I head back here?
