We had an early meeting yesterday, which lasted till 11 am. By the time we were done, all of us were hungry and ready to head out to indulge in some good, hearty meal.
We had fully intended to pay Kei Suk Wantan Mee a visit. The stall, which is located in Restaurant Good Friend, is highly rated and is said to serve up some real good wan tan noodles. It is located in Pudu and from where we were – Berjaya Times Square, it took us barely 10, 15 minutes to get there. We parked and happily walked over, all excited and filled with anticipation only to be told that they were closing because all items were sold out. Say what??? Their time of operation is from 7 am to 1 pm and we were there at 11.30. Business must be real good, huh? I guess it is a good problem to have. An hour and a half before closing time and you’d done for the day. Wowza! Oh well, we will make a conscious effort to pay them a visit earlier when we drop by next.
The good thing about this part of Pudu is that everywhere you turn, there is food. So, it is no surprise that it did not take us long to find a replacement. We walked around for a bit, surveying whats available and decided on Kadai Kopi Yuyi as soon as we saw ‘Fried Kuey Teow.”
Fried Kuey Teow, 7.50 ringgit (Big)
If I am not mistaken, This restaurant is known for their pork noodles. You’d be able to fine numerous reviews/write ups online about this popular dish. There are 3 stalls in this restaurant, two offering the pork noodle variety (pork noodle soup and dry pork noodles) and one offering fried kuey teow. For some reason, all of us immediately opted for the fried kuey teow. I suppose after having to squeeze your brains to its maximum usage, being stuck in a 3 hour long meeting brainstorming – fried tasty noodles does sound way more appealing than pork noodle soup. Having tasted it, I can almost guarantee that not one of us regretted our decision because it was tasty yawwww! A big plate would cost you 7.50 ringgit and a small plate would cost you 6.50 ringgit. The dish came with plenty of fish cakes, prawns, taugehs, cockles. It was delicious. I’d certainly be back here. It is surprisingly understated, I think. Despite its popularity, it was rather quite during brunch/lunch. Naturally, that meant that food arrived really fast too, which is another plus point.
