This loh mee store was recommended by Ah Hien if you are his fans. I love it due to it’s still carry a traditional loh mee taste (古早味). I would say, people goes to the coffee shop also just because of loh mee. Tryout yourself and see you have the same taste as me.
Got up at 8am during public holidays is kind of impossible mission for me. But due to good food cari-cari makan, pushing up myself for it. Heard for friend that you can find traditional good local foods in Chowrasta Market. This round, we just target for only Koay Tiaw Soup and chee cheong fun. 1st high recommendation is chai kuih which located just beside soya bean store. The skin is very soft and tender when bite. Fast selling items in that market. Be there before 9am or else, please come back next time. Koay Tiaw Soup just located inside the coffee shop behind the chai kuih store. Please bare in mind that you have to share table if you or your group are not many people. If you wanna wait, 30min is minimum and still not guarantee that you can get a table to seat. The people there just waiting for koay tiaw soup are really scary. Hong Kong style chee cheong fun store is just beside the corner food court that you should try out.
I like this restaurant is not because of I am vegetarian lovers but because of the restaurant providing lots of different kind of local hookers foods with good taste rather than traditional vegetarian foods that we usually goes. 3 of us ordered 7 dishes total and all are above expectation except nasi kandar. May be because of the curry that cook totally not my expectation or because my mind had programmed with traditional nasi kandar flavors already. I love the chee cheong fun. It taste much better than traditional chee cheong fun that we usually ordered. Yam popiah is another highly recommended dish that must try.
Went with a few good photographing kaki for food hunts. This is my 2nd time went to the place for dinner. The restaurant was decorated with full of trees and plantations providing very cozy environment to relax, gathering, enjoying nice foods and tasting a wine. Different anger having different ambient. Foods served in very big portions. So, do ask before ordered as you might not able to finish it. We took a lots of portrait photos around restaurant. Highly recommended for those dating couple, functions and gathering.
Padang Brown food court is famous for yong tau fu, seafood popiah, Kelabu Bi Hoon, Tau Kuah, and char koay tiow. But all are only available after 1:30pm or even later. This round, my friend and me tried out few items especially seafood popiah. For me, I would recommended Seafood popiah. If just asking me going to “Q” up and wait for it, I would not do so but just happen to go for others like yong tou fu, I don’t like to ordered. Next round, I probably go for yong tou fu, kelabu bi hoon and tou kuah. Any how, taste is up to individual. My recommendation might not meeting others taste.
