Wander down the streets of Chinatown during the daytime and you'll find lots to eat at every nook and cranny. At the crossroads of Jalan Hang Lekir better known to locals as Cecil Street and Petaling Street, you'll find a rundown wooden shack painted a pale green colour hidden behind fruit stalls. During the day, this stall sells chee cheong fun. When night falls, it transforms to Kim Lian Kee where you get Hokkien Noodles. Incidentally for those who crave those black charred noodles during the day, Kim Lian Kee's branch which is just across the road is open from 11 am onwards.
Right next to Hon Kee Porridge, this chee cheong fun stall has been here for ages. They make their own chee cheong fun on a daily basis. What's interesting is in between the thin layers of rice flour rolls, you will see chopped spring onions and tiny slivers of tiny dried prawns (har mai).
As and when people place their orders, they will chop it up for you. A generous portion is served just for RM2 (small) and RM3 (big). Although it's slightly cheaper within Madras Lane (it's RM1.80 there), the portions here are substantially larger. Doused with a sweetish sauce with hints of soy bean (tau cheo) and lots of sesame seeds, it makes a really nice and light breakfast. The chee cheong fun here is also smooth and silky - made by hand by the couple who run this stall. Incidentally with so much food in this area, it's best to snack on small portions at each stall to sample the food.
