Come back

I said, I wouldn't come back here because the place was packed and the new supermarket, Everwin has opened. However I had to eat my words and did so not so long ago.

It was a weekday, the last week of the school holiday. My 12-year-old girl had her tuition in school that day so left me and Jay at home in the morning. Jay wanted kolo mee (as usual!) and he specifically requested to go to 38 Food Street. I wasn't particularly interested to go there but for my son's sake,  I had to accommodate to his request.

We reached there slightly after 11am and we managed to find a decent parking space right in front of the food court. Maybe it was a weekday, so the food court wasn't so full and we were able to find a table to have our lunch.

The last visit was when I had chicken rice and Jay had to wait so long for the kolo mee to be served then. Before that I did tasted the kolo mee and it wasn't that good and authentic.

I was more clever this round, asked the stall how long that I would need to wait for the noodle. Thankfully not long as they whipped up all the queue. So my boy had his kolo mee in quick time while I went to this char chu (stir fry stall) named Chai Shu which is next to New Satay House.


My lunch? This nest of crispy noodle! Yes, tomato crispy noodle. I was actually a bit disappointed when my noodle was served as it wasn't what I expected. Dull-looking tomato gravy unlike some that serve with more tomato (red or orangey in colour) thicken gravy but to my surprise, my noodle gravy tasted good when I tasted a sip of it.


Not too strong with tomato base but just enough flavour to dip and mix the nest of deep-fried crispy egg noodle in. I quite enjoyed the noodle except I prefer them to omit the livers in it. But it was worth the price paid (RM6.50).


I also ordered fried rice with egg (RM5.50) for Jan's lunch. Bet she enjoyed it as she finished the whole pack.

I miss that Kuching-style tomato crispy mee! This one looks rather pale though.

The only time I tasted tomato sauce in noodle was in Singapore. I was told that they don't use black sauce for the dry version, instead they used tomato sauce.

You were early, so lesser crowd and easy parking spot.
The tomato crispy noodle is something new to me though it wasn;t cooked to your liking.

Everything looks good. I still haven't had a chance to try tomato noodles.

I love noodles and fried rice.
Too bad you didn't like the noodles that much.

I believe I would like your plate of crispy noodles in tomato gravy but must share it with someone because I would not be able to finish it on my own.
