Cheong Kee Curry Laksa, Petaling Street

Curry laksa is one of the things I can eat over and over again without ever getting sick of it. A good bowl can lift my spirits when I’m down, while a disappointing encounter can ruin my mood for the day. Yes, I get quite drama when it’s not tasty or when the auntie gives me yellow noodles instead of hor fun (kuay teow).


Petaling Street Curry Laksa

While I wished the Pudu curry laksa is within walking distance from my office, I find solace in this curry laksa from Petaling Street. I’ve even learnt to eat alone as my colleagues refuse to brave the heat in their work clothes for this.


Sambal chilli and a squeeze of lime makes it yummier!

You get three options (yellow mee, vermicelli and kuay teow) for your laksa, with the standard steamed chicken slices and cockles. They also offer fish ball, fish cake and char siew, which you can add with additional charge of course.


Chicken pieces, cockles and tofu puffs

The broth isn’t thick, but it is flavourful especially when you add a dollop of sambal chilli into it. Half a lime is given for that added oomph, and it really does make a difference. Best part is, the auntie is a lot friendlier that the lady from the other curry laksa shop I go to, and a large bowl only costs RM5.20 (RM4.70 for small). I also find this tastier compared to the curry laksa from Madras Lane.


That’s a small price to pay for a bowl of comfort. Of course, be prepared to sweat if you’re ever going to try this. The stall is located next to the tong sui stall along the small alley (opposite Koon Kei Wantan Mee), where the sweet potato ball stall is at the entrance.

Seng Lee, Jalan Batai


That famous Char Kuay Teow in Seng Lee

I’ve never been a fan of Seng Lee at Jalan Batai although my parents enjoy going there. The food here is overpriced and not particularly tasty, at least to me. But we’ve been eating here since I was a little girl and seeing how the coffeeshop isn’t going to be around in 2014, I might as well blog about it. For old times’ sake. And also because I happened to be there last weekend with my parents and had my camera with me hahaha! 😛


Full house


Char kuay teow

The char kuay teow stall is the most popular here especially on Saturdays so expect to wait at least 30 minutes for a plate. That’s because the father does the frying then and his CKT is tastier than the daughter’s. That said, I’m still not a fan.


Char kuay teow with extra egg

While the char kuay teow is said to be one of the best in Klang Valley, it had little or no wok hei and did not come with lap cheong slices and pork lard. That said, if you live around the area and can’t be bothered to drive too far for a plate, this will do.


Curry laksa

Another popular stall at Seng Lee is the curry laksa stall and that too, requires waiting. Truth be told, it’s just an average bowl of curry noodles and portion was on the small side. If you’re ravenous, you’re better off ordering a large bowl. Even so, you’ll only get a moderately sized bowl.


Cockles add flavour to the dish

The curry broth was moderately spicy and thick, but it lacked depth in flavour. I did however like the sambal because it gave the noodles a lot more oomph.


Pork noodles

My dad loves eating the pork noodles here because the broth isn’t not overly porky. I dislike this because I love a good pork broth. There is a reason why it’s called pork noodles…

It gets pretty hot and stuffy in the afternoon especially during peak hours so do have a packet of tissue on standby. A bowl of noodles cost RM5.50 on average and can go up to RM7.50 depending on the ingredients you add on.

*Seng Lee at Jalan Batai will cease operation this 31 December 2013. So you have about 3 weeks to eat your fill.

Curry Laksa at Sin Hoy How, Jalan Tun H.S Lee

My love for curry laksa started when I was 16, after my very first bowl at the coffeeshop in Lucky Garden. Since then, I’m always on the lookout for curry laksa. There’s this curry laksa stall in KL (Restoran Sin Hoy How) which I find decent. It’s located across the road from Hong Ngek and LOKL.


The wait is long and this auntie’s temper can give the Lorong Selamat CKT auntie a run for her money. I hate that she’s so short fused and that I need to wait 30-40 minutes for a damn bowl, but when the craving strikes, I cave.

This curry mee is fuss-free. Comes with slivers of fish cake, tofu puffs, chicken and your choice of noodles. There’s also dry curry mee which I find tastier than the soup version, but I’m soup person so the latter is what I go for every time.


A bowl cost RM5, but it’s so tiny I need a large one (RM5.50). Even so, the large one isn’t quite as filling and I like it to be so I always add on some yong tau fu (RM1.20 per piece) to tame the monster in me. The iced coffee is pretty good too but cost RM3.50 per cup. Still, it beats paying RM12 for latte across the road.
