I'm partial to this char kuey teow stall which I have been patronising for a long time. Although it may not be the best in town (some say), it always brings back memories for me. I can still remember the old days when his assistant was this short and hunched back man who you must place your order with. Now, it's his wife that helps him take orders and deliver the plates of char kuey teow while he fries it up. Usually it's advisable to eat this non peak times as during busy times, the standard drops me a bit as he is rushing to finish frying the noodles.
Besides this char kuey teow stall, Seng Lee also has two sisters running the wantan noodles stall which serves yummy curry laksa. I love their Chinese New Year cookies which I will buy to celebrate the festive season. Then there is also a pork noodles stall which is run by the people who also serve the drinks. That particular stall has gone through a few changes: there was previously another guy who served pork noodles who decided it was too hectic so he switched to frying cantonese noodles at the corner coffeeshop. You must also try the yummy rojak which we used to eat while waiting for our char kuey teow to arrive.
As coffeeshops are super rare in Damansara Heights, these two shops are always packed. Even though there's a new shop in the row, people still prefer these established coffeeshops. The corner coffeeshop is also pretty good with their roast duck noodles (the family who used to run it was originally from the corner stall which faces Central Market - it's now the McDonalds), pan meen and roasted meats.
