Recently we were within the vicinity of Petaling Jaya's town centre to do a spot of banking. The original intention was to try the char kuey teow at Melody which is next to the old State cinema but since the stall was closed that day, we ate at the other corner shop i.e. where the famous seafood porridge is located at. Since it was such a hot day, we decided to try other dishes instead.
I ordered the Penang white curry laksa which is similar to the one I had at Lorong Seratus Tahun. Sadly it may look the same but the taste was really not there. Definitely not something I will order again.
My lunch companion ordered the Ngau Lam (Stewed Beef in Cantonese) noodles from the wantan noodles stall. Big dissapointment as the Ngau Lam was cold.
We were feeling very despondent with the food at this place and then we struck gold with our impulse order of the char kuey teow. It was really great stuff with lots of "wok hei". In fact, it tasted so much better than the one I had at Tingkat Tung Shin. Excuse the raw looking cockles on top but we tend to like our cockles just cooked rather than overcooked and that's the only way to ensure it's just nice (You bury the cockles in the hot noodles when it comes and the heat cooks it). I know the next time when I am in this area, I will definitely return for their char kuey teow and give the rest of the other stalls a total miss.
