Big Family

Finally we went to eat the fresh fish slice noodle at Sungai Buloh after reading about it so many times on Claire's blog. After driving for a long time we reached the place at 11.30 am in time for lunch. Before going, I tried to find out on which day the stall is closed but this information is not available online so we decide to try our luck and just go there.

Happy to arrive at this corner coffee shop.

I couldn't believe my eyes although I did know that there is a possibility that the stall is not opened for business when we reached there.

Ok, take another look from behind just to make sure. Correct, not opened for business but all the other stalls are opened for business so we can just eat other food.

Ordered this bowl of Estuary Grouper fish (Loong Dan) balls mee hoon mixed with hor fun noodles - MYR6 - from another stall that only sells fish balls and fish cakes but no fish slices. The fish balls are very "bouncy" and "springy".

We ordered another bowl of just the Estuary Grouper Fish Balls and Fish cakes without any noodles to share - MYR6 also.

2 rolls of Chee Cheong Fun (ccf) with jicama in it and 1 beancurd sheet, 1 pork skin, 1 fried fish ball with curry - MYR5.60 and because we have leftover curry we bought another 1 sheet of plain flat ccf and 1 roll of plain ccf - MYR1.60 to eat with the extra curry. The ccf tastes good.

Kolo Mee - MYR5 - I like this kolo mee due to the soft noodle and I can tell that lard is used instead of normal cooking oil.

Mix pork noodles - MYR5.5 - decent enough and we ordered hot coffee (MYR1.30) and iced cham (coffee mix with tea) - MYR2.

On our way back, to make full use of this trip, we stopped by the Waterfront at Desa Park City to look around since I have always wanted to visit this place but kept putting it off due to it being located very far from where I live.

  1. Ahhhhh!!!! Kuching kolo mee for the win!!! Hehehehehehe!!!! Not open kah? Did you find out which days it closes...so next time you can go again and not on those days? It would be good to give that info...so others intending to go would not encounter that same problem as you.

  6. aiyoh, what a disappointment that you purposely went to the place and only found out that it's not opening.. but at least you still have many other things to try, and what you have ordered seems to be not at all less interesting than the fish noodles alone.. :)

    i love those fishball, they really seem to be quite springy even just looking at the photo

    the CCF with curry gravy, wow, have not been having this for quite some time.. and like you, i would love the pig skin to go with the curry :p

    haha, the kolo mee should and must use lard right?? i cannot imagine if they are not using lard but just normal cooking oil.. that would taste awful!! :D

    the pork noodles.. hmmm, i will ask not to have any internal organs but just plainly the pork slices and minced pork..

    1. Halal mee uses normal cooking oil, right? Or do they use ghee instead?

      Not that disappointed because I was prepared to face the possibility that it is closed.

  8. Wow! Kolok mee found in Sg Buloh. Not bad. Look just like the Kuching kolok mee. But RM5 was expensive.

    I like the fish soup. Slurp.

  10. This is near my workplace but I am not sure where it is exactly. I need to ask Mamarazzi for directions. She is like a food compass to me. I think RM5.00 is the standard price now.

    1. The fish slice noodle is MYR22 a bowl! This place is very easy to find. It is along Persiaran Sungai Buluoh.

  11. Ah it ate my previous comment.

    Oh ya, I was talking about Min Yee, they sell out very fast coz they don't carry as much fish as Ah Po (the other stall in this coffee shop, which carries everything from white pomfret for RM 14 to estuary groouper for RM 22).

    It's operated by a mother-daughter team and they will also sell out by lunchtime so your best bet is to go early in the morning. We usually go around 9:30 am or latest by 10 am.

    1. Oh, so sorry to hear this. Thanks for writing again. Ah, I don't think I can manage to reach there so early since I have to avoid morning rush hour unless I go on weekends. Maybe I try to go early one weekend. Thanks again. :)
