Whenever I'm around the Imbi area, I'll usually head towards Weng Hing or the Imbi market. As I wanted to try something new, I ended up at this corner coffeeshop I always pass by. The Imbi road system is kinda chaotic at the moment as it's now one way hence if you end up at the wrong side of the road, they divert you at the back streets instead.
At this super busy coffeeshop which occupies two shoplots, quite a number of people were eating toast bread with kaya. The display cabinet with the rows of thick loafs of old fashioned Bengali bread looked so inviting. I quite liked the crispy bread coupled with the not too sweet kaya. As usual, a slab of butter is a must for this type of breads.
Since there were so many stalls at this place, I decided to explore further and ordered a portion of Dry Hor Fun which was topped by poached chicken. I didn't think it was that great - the noodles weren't as smooth compared to other stalls while the poached chicken was quite bland. To get extra flavour, toss it well in the soy sauce mix it is served with.
For another visit, I decided to try their Pork Noodles. Originally I wanted to try char kuey teow but decided against it as the stall owner was away and it was the servant frying. The noodles were ok, nothing much to shout out or make a special trip down for. One thing I notice which is prevalent here is most stalls are manned instead by the Indonesian maids versus their owners. Kinda irritating since I would like to test out the stall owner's expertise. Also avaiable here is curry laksa, pan meen, wantan mee, seafood noodles, steamed pau and etc.
