Chee Cheong Fun @ Jalan Hang Lekir, Chinatown, Kuala Lumpur



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.

this is the stall la, that i calculated whilst waiting to get my packet of 20 tahpaus, that probably earns 90K a month easily. some more CCF so easy, chop chop, pour sauce... not like pork noodles.

oh, i think the premises also sells bak kut teh at dawn. once cos of jet lag we ended up there at 4.30am, and lo and behold, got bak kut teh leh.

That's the best chee cheong fun I've ever eaten. Dad's fav dish whenever he comes to Chinatown. In the same area, there's a stall selling fried fuchuk, with lucious sweet sauce served together with them, another complementary dish which goes together with the CCF. Yum!

lemongrass - can park at the place we found the last time we ate Hokkien Mee and walk here.

precious pea - this place has the green chilies but not the soy sauce type. Worth it just for the smooth texture.

someone who is constantly craving - lucky you had breakfast or you will call be evil again.

wmw - quickly go then. Very yummy stuff.

fbb - no wonder uncle and auntie so smiley and nice to me. Must admit this place, the service is with a smile vs those sour faced hawkers I always encounter.

lianne - hee hee, time to make another visit?

kampungboycitygal - wonder if it will match the Ipoh std of chee cheong fun?

meiyen - congrats!

whisky - thxs for the tip on the fuchuk, sounds good.

kenny mah - LOL, can diet then just looking at the blog.

boo_licious said...
