Recently, I had an opportunity to try out the vegetarian fare served at this food centre located just off Tengkat Tung Shin. Babe in the City - KL has been talking about this place a few times which got me curious. It's quite easy to find with her instructions and it's basically a food court serving all kinds of stall food with vegetarian ingredients. There is also a small shop selling frozen vegetarian items and cooking ingredients if you wish to recreate the dishes at home.
I must admit I absolutely love their char kuey teow here - it's fried to perfection, not too oily and fragrant with lots of eggs in it. Although it does not have many ingredients in it except bean sprouts and vegetarian fish cake, it's an extremely satisfying meal. What is also amazing is the man who fries it is an Indian fella called Ah Wah who speaks perfect Cantonese Chinese. He's perfected his technique of frying it as he has been doing this for the past twenty years.
Every hawker food is represented here including Assam Laksa. This wasn't too fantastic as the assam sauce wasn't tangy enough versus Yue Yee Chai's version.
We also had their Mee Jawa which came in a thick broth that is thick with sweet potatoes. Big mistake trying this out as this was horrible hence this is definitely off the list of items to try again at this place. The only thing I notice about this food centre is majority of the people working at these stalls are Indonesians instead of locals. Only the Char Kuey Teow stall has some form of continuity since the man has been frying his kuey teow for twenty years.
