KL Food (Non-Halal)

Whenever we eat in KL, that would usually be in the vicinity of Jalan Tong Shin area. There are about 5 places where we would eat from in that area and I'll be blogging a bit on three this time. Coming back to this place always brings back fond memories. I had lived in this area for the past 20 plus years since I came out from my mother's womb before I shifted up to Petaling Jaya.

When it comes to dinner or supper, we would usually adjourn to Ngau Kee Beef Noodle Stall. I had a short conversation with Ngau So (Ngau Kee's wife) who was doing the cooking the night we were there. Ngau So would been cooking once in a while (it would be once in a blue moon to see Ngau Kee himself) and this usually means tastier noodles since they are the ones who started this stall back in 1972~gosh! The stall is actually 34 years old! Most of the time though, it would be some other helpers cooking, still good, but not quite the same.


I usually order Lo Shee Fun (dry) and beef ball noodles. That night CC decided to get a mix of beef ball and tripe while JC have the same as CC but without the noodles. I like the generous mince meat and spring onion topping on the noodles. The tripe is tender and the soup is nice. I prefer this one to the Jalan Silang's version, and of course, there are those who prefer Jalan Silang's to Ngau Kee. A small bowl of noodles with your choice of beef balls/tripe/meat is about RM4. Oh, just a mention here, if you ever come here at night, check out the stall opposite Ngau Kee. It serves all sorts of fried noodles, and it's quite good too (prepare to wait if there's a crowd as they are quite slow-this stall has been around as long as Ngau Kee too!). They serve a mean Fried Min Sin (mee suah), lots of cabbage and eggs with short crispy pre-fried min sin along with the usual prawn and squid! Lovely!

Next would be the truly potent pork noodles, this stall is located at the Adik Beradik Chua Coffeeshop which also houses the famous fish ball noodle stall. For someone that does not really like pork, this is about the only place where I would order mince pork noodles (no, I don't do spare parts!).


It comes with crispy lard bits and lettuce and piping hot (as in temperature!). Believe it or not, still warm down to the very last bite of your noodles! They also serve the noodles loh mee style if you want and porridge is available too. The lady use to have the stall in the Blue Boy Coffeeshop but relocated after the coffeeshop started serving vegetarian food only.





When we are in this area for lunch, we normally pack RM10 worth of caramelised roast pork (char siew) from the famous Meng Kee stall and eat it here too. Once in awhile, they get it just right (half half) but once in awhile, it has too much fat! If it's too lean, one would have a tough time chewing! After a visit to the pork noodles stall and eating the char siew, I usually lay off pork for a while as I do not want to overdose! Well, that is until my next visit here!
