It was a rainy day, and also on weekend which I usually dine with my family on sat night or Sunday night then wanted to go a street nearby Campbell street to eat the char koey teow, mana tau did not open..aiii~ so switch to my dad’s favourite area. Northam Beach Cafe whereby a kopitam with East Meet West Meet Local food paradise. This Cafe a.k.a more standard kopitiam, offers variety of food like Western, French, Mexican, Japanese, Italian, German, Pizza and local food. One of a few stalls that must not miss which is the French, Italian, German, Jawa Mee, Char Hor Fun and Hokkien Char.
My mom was having ‘Hokkien Char’ which is one of her favourite in this hawker center. It is from the same stall as Char Hor Fun as as strong wok taste, not too salty, mix with some sambal given, wow, the taste is just nice, plate licking good.
This is the ‘Char Hor Fun’. Highly recommended. Got the wok taste and got the hor fun feel not like the one in KL a bit different in taste. The soup is thick in taste and the egg is perfectly match the taste in there which is my dad’s favourite.
This is one of the worst food I had in there, a fried potato with, don know what and what as all three pieces is different flavour but turns out to be all the same. Forgot to ask my parents as they said that they food on that stall not nice which is just next to the French Food stall.
This is from the Mexican Food stall and it is ‘Mexican Combo’. Well,was told by my dad it is nice so decided to try, before ordering the food, I was standing in front of the stall look at that lady cooking. She seems alright in cooking so decided to order. To my disappointment the food does not taste nice. Maybe I have taste before a better one and this is just not my choice. RM11 for this.
This is the firewood pizza as I order ‘Chicken Hawaiian’. Thin layer for the base, nicely baked in their special oven. Has some herb taste and maybe the pineapple that they use that day a bit sour if sweeter abit, will be very nice piece of pizza which I don mind to recommend.
This is from our favourite stall which we rarely miss. One of their signature is ‘Chicken Pie’ with a chicken and mushroom soup base in there. The soup is not too thick and not too watery, goes along very well with the crust of the pie and they were never ‘kiam siap‘ as inside the soup is rich of ingredient like chicken, mushroom and some vegie. RM9.50 for this.
