Win Heng Seng

Once a month, during Sunday or a Public Holiday, we would take the trouble to drive down to Imbi just to have breakfast.

Pork noodles - MYR7 - with pork intestines, livers, pork meat slices and pork kidney in a sweet porky soup.

My favourite Char Kway Teow - MYR6 - dry and not salty as I requested the vendor not to put any salt in it and he kindly obliged. The portion is small so between the both of us, we will always order another bowl of noodle as this is a once a month visit.

This is the other bowl of noodle that we will order every time - Pork Meat Balls Noodles (Sam Kan Chong) - MYR8 - the noodle is full of the taste of lard with the minced pork in it. A glass of Cham Ping (iced mixed coffee and tea) costs MYR2.20 and there are many other stalls here - selling mini egg tarts (very popular and long queue), chicken rice, chee cheong fun and etc but every time we will only order from these 3 stalls.

The Char Kway Teow Stall

See the cars parked alongside the shop - it is always fully packed with customers inside so you need to be really early if you want to avoid the crowd.

Nice and early with the bright blue clear sky

  3. So once a month, on one of those days when the traffic is at its worst, you will drive down to Imbi LOL! Did you grow up in that area? Otherwise I can't imagine anyone willing to get caught in KL traffic just to visit a coffee shop. My dad parents know this place well (their original bag shop was in Sg Wang before moving to Central Market), but not me..

    2. By the time you finish eating, already jam, no? :D

    3. Finish eating will be only 8.30am or 9am, not jam yet lah. Sunday most people will sleep in until lunch time, hehehe!

  4. the first thing I have in mind after i read this post is.. very expensive!! haha.. but I guess with many people eating there in the morning, you and your spouse would drive all the way there, there are a few things you never failed to order, the conclusion is that, though expensive but so good that patrons are willing to pay the price.. :)

  6. I always heard there are lots of good food at Imbi especially at the morning market. Normally, I will get a quick fix of CKT at pasar malam nearby my place.

  8. I've only eaten the "sam kan chong" noodles here bcoz each time I'm in Imbi, I end up at Mei Sin (off Jalan Imbi) for the hor fun soup, wantan mee, chicken rice, pork noodles, CKT...and the best curry laksa!

    1. I have been to mei sin but find it very hot and crowded there so prefer here.

      Delete
    2. Ah well, places with good food are always crowded (something that we have to live with, I guess). If it's not (crowded), we'd probably think the food is not good.

      Delete
    3. Only crowded not so bad but I find the place very dirty.

      Delete
  9. Wow, I love that pork noodle with all the spare parts! Fried koay teow too. But I find it quite a chore to go to that area. Which probably explains why you only go there once a month.

  10. CKT without salt. That's interesting. Maybe I can try that but I definitely cant do without cili :D

  12. Never been to this restaurant. I only been to Imbi for breakfast once with friends. Mostly dinners or suppers at night.

    I like that char kuaw tiaw. Not the liver soup as I am not fond of innards. Hehe.

  16. My colleagues used to like going to this shop when we were working near Pavillion. For me, I wouldn't bother with the jam and the rm3 parking hehe. Food is ok la but rather expensive for a coffee shop.

    1. Working near Pavilion can walk there, no need to jam and pay parking.
