It was a Saturday morning when we went to Batu Kawa old town for breakfast. I know, it is not our usual breakfast spot and it is the other way out of the city. It is totally out of the way! We hardly come here! But there was a reason that morning to drop by so we thought of having breakfast there before proceed with our intention.
The Batu Kawa kolo mee with meatballs is on the right side (blue roof)
This is the famous Batu Kawa Hakka kolo mee with meatballs which is right next to the roundabout of the old settlement. It is believed that the 1st Hakka immigrants came and settled in this old town many many years ago.
The famous kolo mee stall used to operate in the community hall (red roof) before they built a smaller roadside stall right next to it (blue roof).
The Hakka operators were friendly and ready to serve you. The place was very fast filled up within a minute and luckily we were early that morning so we would not need to wait that long.
Ooohh. I spotted these old crates of bottled flavoured drinks. Green is banana flavour while the red one is cherries. No, none of us ordered them.
Here was my bowl of kolo mee. If you are wondering what Hakka kolo mee should be, it is usually just minced meat and lots of spring onion on top of the noodle. Of course like any other food, they evolved and changed to fit the local taste and time.
Meat balls and char siew were added in for added taste. I like this old school kolo mee. And we did ordered a bowl of meatballs soup to go with our noodles.
We didn't really need this chilli vinegar dipping for the meatballs but it was nice and taste good.
And my day must started off with a glass of teh c peng. I was expected the original teh c peng but it came like this. With the gula apong. Like those 3-coloured teh c peng. The gula apong was too sweet to my liking.
