Home Food Reviews Sungai Lembing Morning Market

I sometimes don’t get why my other half enjoys planning difficult activities at insane hours – 4am! We were on a food trip with friends in Kuantan, when he suggested a hike up Panaroma Hill to watch the sunrise.

That meant we had to leave the hotel at 4am to reach the bottom of the hill at 5am. The climb up takes an hour or slightly more, depending on how fast you climb. When we made it to the top, most of us were out of breath as the air was thin and some rarely exercise. But the view was beautiful and worth the climb.

After the hike, we went to the Sungai Lembing morning market for breakfast. The yong tau fu stall is the busiest of the lot, so we joined the queue. You get to choose the yong tau fu you want and cook it with the noodles of your choice – dry, soup and curry noodles. I was told the noodles were made using mountain water and the texture is smoother.

My huge bowl of curry noodles and ingredients cost slightly over RM6. Pretty good value considering the portion. The noodles were springy and I found the curry gravy decent. Simple stuff, but very satisfying after a tiring climb.

rif had the dry noodles, which was also quite good. If you want to enjoy the texture and flavour of the noodles, the dry version is best. He was less greedy, so his bowl of noodles and yong tau fu cost about RM5.

To get to the market, just follow the signboard that says Pasar Sungai Lembing. The stall is inside the food court of the market.
