Its a bit smokey in Kwai Lock as most of the hawkers fried their servings away on the street just outside the coffeeshop. There are just so many good selections of hawkers food to choose from over here. I started with the stall outside selling chee cheong fun and various local kueh. The chee cheong fun looks good and I see a lot of people ordering but wasn’t in a mood for it that morning, so I went for some chai kueh instead. I think it was 9am then and only a few pieces left. The chai kueh is pretty ok with some red sour spicy chili sauce to go with it.

The wantan mee here are served with bbq pork, mushroom and wantan… every stall seems to have their own style! The hokkien mee here is quite ok but didn’t really satisfied me, so I ordered a plate of fried mee suah. The fried mee suah is a bit wet with prawns and pork and the chili to go with it is superb, love it!

Surprisingly the curry mee here does not have pig’s blood but it was ok. Most of the noodles cost RM3 each, still ok. The roti bakar is cheap, at RM1.00 only and they provide you with a satay stick so you don’t have to get your hands dirty and sticky, pretty good idea ;).

    To be honest, i dont like the food here.. but it’s still good enough to eat 😉
    The one just oppo is better (esp the wan tan mee w gravy!) and the famous Hokkien mee is there too. The Apom (cooked in claypots) is heavenly..(but i’m sure u hv been there, since u cover so many plcs already!)
