Last Sunday was one of the rare occasions I managed to eat a late breakfast with my mother since Splashie Boy was out of town. We headed towards the coffee shop, Yong Len at Taman Tun Dr Ismail for her current favourite "makan" i.e. their prawn mee. The prawn mee(RM4.30 with extra ingredients) is excellent here and I find the soup broth is sweeter versus the ones they serve at Lim Mee Yoke. There's lots of great food at this coffee shop, their char kuey teow is not too bad and full of fat and crunchy bean sprouts. There is also a pretty good curry laksa at one of the stalls which I had earlier blogged about.
Besides the hawker items, we also love their char siu pau (RM1.10). Although it's the run of the mill kind you get in a tall steamer in front of the restaurant, their paus are from a brand called Onn Onn which is excellent. You can get them at selected coffeeshops but for us, we usually get them at this place. They also have a vegetarian pau filled with grated sengkuang which is not too bad.
In front of the shop, there is a stall which sells Nyonya cakes. A must have here are their ang koos i.e. sticky red tinted rice cakes filled with green beans. The green version on top is filled with grated coconut that is not as good as the traditional red ones.
