Vegetarian Food Court @ Blue Boy Mansion, Kuala Lumpur



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.

Has anyone ever tried this Char Kuey Teow stall in PJ old town called Ng Teow Lay? This was at the old food square close to the bus station. It was a long time ago, about 20 years. My mom was still talking about him when I was in KL 2 years ago. Have a safe holiday Boo. Hope you get to go out and eat more:)

Wah, more memories. I used to stay in the flats (above the coffeeshop) since I was born! It was a normal coffeeshop with the usual hawker food before it became solely vegetarian. I had actually eaten the CKT before it became a vegetarian dish. It was good then and it's still good now albeit no meat. The tasty pork noodles from this place is now located at Adik Beradik Chua's (I've mentioned that to you before, boo_licious. Have you tried it before?).

just sharlene - hope you enjoy it. The CKT is really good!

flymeng - I've tried one in PJ old town but can't remember it's name. Will try and snap a pix of it next time for you.

babe - we were feeling adventurous as we ate a very late lunch that day!

KY - LOL! Too far from IBM's offices though since they are now next to 1Utama.

wmw - great childhood memories. I love the old staircase leading up the stairs in front of Corona Inn. That will look great in an advertisement as it looks like somewhere in HK rather than Msia. Nope, yet to try the pork noodles, will give it a try the next time I am there.

flymeng, Ng Teow Lay has been relocated to Taman Selera in PJ Old Town (next to the new market in Jalan Othman) after the redevelopment of the former KL Klang Omnibus Terminal into commercial shop lots.
