Rocky Restaurant in Bangsar

I’ve lived in Bangsar almost all my life – having moved to the neighbourhood when I was two – hence the name “Bangsar Babe”. The area has changed tremendously ever since; shops come and go, and some relocated to a different street. Like Devi’s Corner.

Basic interior

Rocky Restaurant is one of the few shops that has been around for the longest time and I remember going there as a little girl with my father, who enjoyed the prawn mee. It’s been more than 10 years since I set foot in this coffeeshop and it was the same as I remembered it to be. 😉

Light prawn broth

They don’t have many options available, unlike Sun Huat Kee in Lucky Garden. There is a stall selling char kuay teow, pork noodles, chicken rice, mix rice and the most popular of all, prawn noodles. Truth be told, I never found the prawn noodles all that great as the broth lacked flavour and sweetness from the prawns. That said, portion was pretty generous and the sambal chilli added a bit more kick to the noodles. A bowl cost RM5 or RM5.50, if I remembered correctly.

Minced pork and vegetables

More disappointing was the pork noodles which I ordered ‘kon loh’ style. The kuay teow was tasteless and had little or no aroma. I didn’t care much for the soup with minced pork and vegetables. Unless you fancy something “ch’ng”, skip this.

Char Kuay Teow

P1240241

Generous portion

I reckon the best thing to order here is the char kuay teow (RM5.50 for a large plate), although I find it a tad oily. Sure most char kuay teow are oily, but there’s a big difference between an oily but full of wok hei version, versus an oily one. This plate fell under the latter category. Still, it’s pretty decent if you’re looking for an affordable bite in Bangsar Baru.

A tad too greasy for my liking

What I like about Rocky is how clean they keep the place. Eating here is pretty comfortable (sometimes hot because of our humid weather) and the owners are pleasant. Unlike the service you would usually get at the coffeeshops in Lucky Garden.
