Hawker food is something I enjoy eating and despite the occasional incidences of diarrhoea and tummy aches, I’m still not sick of it. There are plenty of choices ranging from mixed rice, chicken rice, soup noodles, fried noodles and so on. While the hawker stalls in Bangsar are pretty convenient for me, I do like exploring new places for my food fix.
CK Kopitiam in Taman Miharja was a random discovery, when our initial plan for pan mee didn’t work out. Since this coffeeshop was a few metres away, we decided to give this a try. I’m very accustomed to pork noodles, but noodles with herbal pork broth was new to me.
I found the broth sweet from the meat and bones, with a slight hint of herbal goodness. It’s like having herbal soup, only, this one was mixed with pork broth. That aside, the noodles (RM5.50) were quite delicious and I thought the herbal factor helps offset the richness of the broth.
We also tried the fish head noodles, which I liked very much. The noodles had a nice, chewy texture while the broth (packed with flavour from the tomatoes and preserved vegetables) was rich from the addition of evaporated milk. I liked that there was a good amount of fried fish slices and for RM6.50, it was good value for money.
The Cantonese Fried Kuay Teow (RM5.50) looked promising, so I ordered a plate to try. Tastewise, it was above average and came with a generous amount of ingredients. That said, I thought it could have done with more wok hei as the aroma wasn’t quite there.
Curry mee, chicken rice and fried kuay teow are also available in case you’re not a fan of the three items above.
