It was a fine Sunday evening after a heavy downpour in the afternoon. My dad called and suggested to have dinner in the old town of Batu Kawa. It is right after the big river so we hardly go there. To some, it is out the way as very far from the city. Some may called this part of the areas "jungle". It is indeed surrounded by jungle and the town is small and secluded from the main road.
However do not look down on this small town. It is burst with activities and trading during the days. Not forgetting the unforgettable Batu Kawa's famous meatballs shops that never lack of loyal patrons.
Now back to my Sunday dinner. Dad wanted to have fried mien sien (threaded noodle) so we went to this B. K. Corner Restaurant.
Luckily it was not packed otherwise you would need to be patient in waiting for your food to arrive. In no time, our fried mien sien (thread noodle) came!
Fried mien sien (front) & mui chai pork belly (back)
I have been here once before this and I did enjoyed its fried mien sien previously. This round it did not disappointed me. Very tasty and fragrant with generous amount of dried prawns, eggs and cangkuk manis. Salty enough and the noodle was fried to dry perfection.
Next was its signature deep-fried beancurds. Very yummy. Soft inside yet crispy skin outside but watch out! It was warm inside.
Lastly was the mui chai pork belly (preserved mustard green pork belly). Highly recommended by the captain so we decided to give it a try. True to his words, it was very delicious. Meat was tender and with mui chai, this dish was simply appetizing.
It was a wonderful dinner. And price was reasonable too. If too expensive, we would not be driving all the way here. Lol.
It is actually about 15 -20 minutes drive from my house, depends on traffic. For my dad, it would take him about 20 to 25 minutes drive from his house to my house and pick us up before we go in one car to this old part of the town! To him, it is not far. Anything for good and reasonable food.
