Often, simplicity is best.
The chinese condiments of soy sauce never failed to work wonders for a dish. A bit of this, and a dash of that, then a flurry of shallots over the top & there have you a tasty noodles dish.
This particular stall in Restaurant Megah Good Luck, Taman Megah gussies up their simple noodles with soft, crackly – top siew yoke (roast pork) & at your request, a ladleful of watery but aromatic curry.
The blanched noodles & bean sprouts (taugeh), drizzled with of their own mix of soy sauce & some spring onions made the base for this dish of RM4.50. The result is a simple, delicious & economic lunch item that never fails to satisfy.
Unka loves his with curry, & the mix of soy sauce & curry certainly adds a new dimension of taste to the dish.
Another reason to drop by was to check out Robert’s Char Kuey Teow after my mid – week lunch tryst at Say Huat Restaurant in Section 17, PJ.
Apparently Robert has branches all over PJ, & I couldn’t resist a comparison.
Here, his protege dishes out quite a mean plate of char kuey teow; which although is good, can’t hold a candle to Robert’s at Say Huat’s.
hmm… How should I put it? It tasted almost the same but it ain’t the same? 😉
But of course, if you are in Taman Megah, this version is almost as good as it gets.
Unable to resist economy rice, I heaped myself a plateful of my favourite items; stir fry vegetables, sting ray in sour assam curry (not very fresh), sweet & sour pork ribs (more batter than actual pork) & chinese cabbage with fermented beans.
And, yes, there IS rice underneath all that ;p
For foodies wanting to try something out of ordinary, this stall promises some twists to decades old creation of Sarawakian favourites.
Needless to say, I ordered something to try, and my RM4.50 Tomato Mee was a pure disaster; or to me at least it was.
For lunch, the roast pork noodles is highly recommended. The chicken rice stall does brisk business too & would probably be my lunch on my next visit 😉
