when you think of saving money but you want to have some healthy food, you can think of this bee hoon. they were called economy fried bee hoon as one packet only cost rm 1 to rm 2. it is very cheap and at the same time it can fulfill your stomach. it is just normal fried bee hoon, nothing special, but tastes okay, not too oily or salty. most importantly, it do not contain much MSG。
this stall is located in the morning market of taman berjaya. they use the small prawns to cook for the soup base, so it tastes a little bit seafood taste, fresh and nice. if you are a spicy-lover, you can add in as much as sambal you love then the colour of the soup will turn red. you can choose whether you want yellow mee or mihun or mixed. it is served with a few slice of cha shao too. and the price is really cheap, only rm 2-3 per bowl.
this is the other type of food you can never find in whether central or southern of malaysia, it is only a food from northern of malaysia. some people will curious of is it koay teow and koay chap is the same thing? actually it is not, koay teow is the type they fried with taoge but koay chap is the type they serve with many types of braised food such as braised egg, braised meat and others. so if you came to northern of malaysia, u can give a try of koay chap if you love strong herbal taste of soup.
when i first came to kuala lumpur, i tried the loh mee in kuala lumpur. surprisingly, it was different from the one i used to eat in kedah. now i am going to introduce the loh mee in kedah. the loh mee here have super thick soup, dark in colour, with yellow mee, some cha shao and vinegar garlic. so do not order it if you are not a garlic-lover as they soup have a strong garlic smell.
this stall is located at taman berjaya ( some people call the place as pasar pagi which means the morning market ). there are many stalls at that place selling different kind of foods, one of it is char koay teow. the important thing to make the char koay teow tastes better is not to be too oily. luckily this stall's char kuey teow still considered as okay. they also sell fried indonesia mee. i never tried before so maybe i will try out next time. overall it is just okay, nothing special.
