It has been a while since I wake up early head out for breakfast till my friend came to my house and drag me out. Usually I will have a simple breakfast at home, either cereal or bread spread with peanut butter. It was not that early when my friend came pick me as she brought me to one of her favourite Hainanese breakfast food place to eat.

This little hawker area that operate in Taman Midah, in front of Public Bank if I am not mistaken. All these hawker area, do not have a proper name like Ah Meng Kopitiam or something something that you are able to recognize as this stall is famous among its neighborhood.

It is a very busy stalls and the amount of customers packing up this place is amazing, even the tables and chairs have to be extended to some parking lots or infront of some shop houses.

Cheras (2)

Price is pretty cheap  . .

Full house as we reach 11am . . As we start ordering, quite number of items had been sold out left with only 2-3 items in the menu, as we got no choice  . .. Look around to see what other customers order the most and turns out to be :

Curry Mee @ RM 4.40 is one of the famous dish here I suppose that 70% of people are eating this or are only left with this few choices. Its pretty unique that I did not know that Hainanese Curry Mee is a very simple version that filled with ‘cockles, taupok and pig skin’. Its a very simple dish actually that taste is just perfect for not heavy taste bud eater. Mild curry fragrant santan taste that is not so spicy and I ask for another scoop of chili to make it fiery red, yet its not too spicy. I guess have to just enjoy a plain style in the morning.

Scouted another thing is most of the customer’s there order Kopi and the colour of it looks good! solid dark brown that show’s the umph of the coffee. . .Order in 2 version, one cold and one hot.

Cheras (6)

Hot Kopi – its thick in flavour and you can taste strong robust coffee flavor and just comes to my liking. Perfect way to enjoy my morning coffee. . – REcommended – either in cold or hot. 

Cheras (7)

Prawn Mee @ RM 4.40 serve in small decent bowl that looks just fine for me on breakfast. Soup base looks pale yet can smell the taste of being cook with prawns. First sip of soup amaze me that it had a Penang version Har Mee and the slight different this Hainanese stall version bends towards more sweet. Taste pretty good tho.

After finish our meal and look around wonder why so many people order Wan Tan mee, and we decided to order along. Noodle is slight springy and I see many people order it in curry soup base. Then I put into my curry soup and turns out to taste better. If you do order this, order for Curry soup base with Wantan noodle.

This stall operate from 7am-12pm daily (I think)

Cheras (9)

I know its a bit hard to explain on this place, therefore I took some pictures on how to recognise it.

And there is only 1 bus stop here.

After finish our breakfast, she brought me to hunt another stall which is famous for ‘Ham Chi Peng’ which is a few stalls away from then Hainanese stall. Filled with variety that you can choose from and its family operate business.

Dad making the dough . .  Mom frying on it and son taking orders and take away. Friendly uncle. . .

One of my friends favourite is the Prawn Fritters that sells here. as in the picture you can see its on the far right.

Prawn fritters are good, crispy on outside and all edges and soft on inside. Add on with their chili sauce just pair very well. Do drop by to this stall if you are here for the Hainanese breakfast. Worth to buy as its cheap too . .:)

For morning breakfast that you prefer something not so solid in taste then this is one of the stall that you can drop by. I am sure that i will be coming back to try out their other stuff by being early.

On or last trip on our enjoyment stay at Philea Resort & Spa for the night, then me, Ken, Jason(Our Melaka  Food Guy) that bring us for a food hunting during the stay introducing the very local delight the non-tourist spot. One of his favourite restaurant he rate the best for him which is Restaurant Chuen How served the best Char Siew or know as Best BBQ Pork in Melaka. Restaurant Chuen How

Seriously, if you ask me how to come here, I am sure I will be lost as pusing here and there to come to this coffee shop as it feels that it quite out from the city center. This shop is famous among its neighbourhood. . .

Look at the long queue, and we were far behind. This shop actually served economy rice, with its signature many people come here to take away the BBQ.

Prices and dishes all are written in chinese and I do not know what it crap about . . .

In our mind, usually BBQ Pork comes in a long strips and this version of BBQ Pork is totally different which is prepared in a very short and thin strips, then you can choose what kind of meat you want, by the look of it I was already swallowing my saliva and just cant wait to bite one strip!

 

Besides BBQ Pork, many people also order Roast Pork and also order his side dish to be added on for rice for dinner.

Economy rice section for you to choose from . .

Very plain style of kopitiam seating as you don see many dine in, most of them came here to take away . . .At first we are here just to test the BBQ Pork only, after heavy influence of Jason, all of us ended up order many dishes and ended up eating rice also . .

Potato in soy sauce I would say, boil till soft and fried along with pork that makes it nice to go along with rice.

The ‘Asam Gulai Fish’ is one of the dish that must take, with its taste of sour, spicy which is at the right level and we just drink it like soup. Recommended~

Roast Pork is nothing much to shout about and I would say it’s above average.

Super star of the dish, which is the BBQ Pork, as this version is not those version that going to melt in your mouth, and I like this BBQ Pork very much too, as I got to know that it marinate overnight with various herbs and spices then head to chargrill spread with honey to give its sweetness, roast till the edge is burn and crispy. With its super thin slices, and thin fats in between layers, soft meat and aromatic caramelize by it,  once start eating, you will never stop, ! One great BBQ Pork to go after! Highly Recommended!

I am surely going to be back again if I head back to Melaka. Please be there early as usually the Char Siew is sold out after 7.30pm. Average a BBQ Pork Rice starts around RM4 . .

this is what I got ..

It’s not in the town center but rather outside the town. Find your way to Siemens or National Semiconductor and you are on the right route to the shop. After passing by Siemens or National Semiconductor, drive straight until you see a big T-junction and a Perodua center (corner lot) at one corner. Turn towards the Perodua center and go straight until you see Chuen How Restaurant on your left.

Most of the time when I am back to Penang, I would always try to dine in this place or my friend would eventually suggest this place also. This western food stall is quite well known to alot of people in Penang for its price, serving and the quality but it is always a pain in the ass as have to wait quite long.

This is the point where you order your choice.

With the price list and variety available, it sure wont disappoint you.

I do not know why, most of the time I would order this ‘Mushroom Soup’ which had a style of its own, taste a bit like Campbell soup but with their own recipe, a bit thick in flavour yet a very small pieces of mushroom chunks in it and also button mushroom slices. RM3 (if not mistaken)
‘Chicken Chop’ which happens to be one of our favourite in our ordering since from high school till now. A very plain style but the best thing was the gravy that shower on it. Well fried with crispy on the outer layer yet the chicken taste soft in the inside. RM6.50

‘Chicken Maryland’ not my type of order which comes out to be everything very dry, but my friend do like it very much. RM8

My usual order ‘Mixed Grill’ RM15 which had a price increase already but still with the amount of meat I got no complain, as it comes with lamb, pork, beef, bacon, egg and sausages. One plate is enough to kill me. My order of this as I always request for the ‘Chicken Chop Gravy’ which goes along with it perfectly.

Advisable to go there early or after 11 to avoid long wait. If you are very hungry, I would not advise to go there also. The usual wait if you are lucky 20 mins is the fastest. One of my favourite place to look for western food, which I still think the price is quite cheap. This place is very easily spotted as its just right on the roadside. Recommended~
