Tomato Kuey Teow @ Restoran Megah Goodluck, Petaling Jaya

Just a short post today since I have been overloading on the pictures the past few days. Here's something which may or may not make home sick Sarawakians happy. There's a stall at Taman Megah which serves Sarawak food - the famous laksa, Kolo Mee and this very rarely seen item, Tomato Kuey Teow.

It's definitely different from anything I have tasted before in the Klang Valley. Although it uses the same ingredients like a Cantonese Fried Kuey Teow with the flat rice noodles, here the gravy served is flavoured with tomato ketchup. Slightly sweetish, it can take some time to get used to. The serving here is pretty generous with prawns, sliced char siu and vegetables making it a pretty substantial meal. I've also tried their Sarawak Laksa before which I didn't think was that great compared to the one served in Nam Chuan, Bangsar and the nearby Taman Megah stall across the road at Restoran Gembira.

Be cautious when you eat around this area, there seems to be a spate of snatch thieves here as that day when I dined here, I witnessed a lady getting her bag snatched right in front of this restaurant. It could be the thieves target this area since there's a bank. Besides this stall which serves Sarawak specialties, there's also the
roast pork curry noodles I had blogged before which is pretty good too.

Is this soupy or just with some gravy? I may like this since I like Singapore Fried Beehoon. By the way, got any recommendations where to get a good one?

Interesting. I can imagine what diluted tomato sauce tastes like. But I suppose once you add all the other ingredients (prawns, char siu!), the taste will be a lot better.

Haven't tried this here but when I had it in Kuching, it was a new eating experience and I liked it.

tummythoz - it's gravy. Think Cantonese fried noodles except they had added tomato ketchup in the gravy. Sorry no idea abt Spore beehoon as the one we used to eat had closed down already. So sad.

lemongrass - It's unusual I must admit, takes a while to get used to as it makes the gravy sweetish.

wmw - I suspect in Kuching it could be better but so far this is the only place I found in Klang Valley which makes this.

precious pea - this area is where Fatty Crab, Ming Tien Food Court and La Manila is located.

meiyen - I think it's a daytime place. At night was told there's the Soo Kee fried noodles.

xiu long bao - yeah, must be careful if want to eat hawker food nowadays.

teckiee - yeah, across the road from you I think.

jackson - LOL! Like experiment also. Place open during daytime only.

joe - This is kinda comfort like esp if let us say you like tomato soup.
