Breakfast @ Restoran Kam Fatt, Tengkat Tong Shin, Kuala Lumpur

After having a dissapointing breakfast at Mei Sin, I was kinda stumped on where else I could try. Luckily WMW from You Get Want You Give Sometimes suggested this particular place to me along Tengkat Tong Shin. Packed with people getting their breakfast before they head off the work, it's a breeze getting a parking space in front of the shops. Right in front of the shop, you'll find a stall selling chee cheong fun, cakes, snacks, steamed pau, fried beehoon and glutinous rice. It's popular with everyone and you can even get a plate to eat it within the shop.

The shop only has one stall run by a lady which serves assam laksa, curry laksa, dry curry chicken mee, fish porridge, chicken porridge and fishball noodles. Since they sell so many items here, you can actually pick and mix your own concoctions. For instance the curry laksa can include whatever you wish whether it's more bean sprouts, chicken shreds or cockles. The laksa is thick and creamy - you can feel your arteries clogging up after you eat this.

Taking WMW's advise, I ordered a plate of sinfully good deep fried intestines to accompany the laksa. It was good stuff and I mixed some inside the laksa or just crunched on them when eating my noodles.

One day when I was here, I decided to try a different concoction and saw them preparing this unusual dish - chee chap noodles. Usually this is eaten with porridge but here you can have it with dry noodles or noodle soup. Packed with crunchy deep fried intestines, braised intestines and slices of the lung, it was good stuff.

Also good at this place is their toast bread with kaya and butter. A man will prepare the toast by using the small toaster oven and then add small pieces of butter. What makes this place's toast to be exceptional - it was beautifully toasted on all sides so it's nice and crunchy when you bite into it. The man who makes this is quite funny too as he goes around telling you to eat it quickly before it gets cold. If you're within this area, do give this place a try as it's so much nicer and cosier compared to Mei Sin plus I didn't spy any Indonesian maids preparing the food so it felt very authentic.
