Now with last weekend’s trip to Kuala Lumpur, that makes it the only city where I have been to by air, land and sea. The last time I was here with the (almost) same bunch of guys was also for a card tournament about seven years ago, the Lord of the Rings collectible card game to be exact. But my friends have all been to the city at least a dozen times more than me so I let them show me around.
I forgot to take a snapshot of the shop exterior but it’s at Bukit Bintang, a little old corner kopi tiam that’s a short walk from Jalan Alor. It's right next to hotel Royal Bintang.
Our gang of five strolled in at about 10am and a Chinese uncle ushered us to an old school round kopi tiam table. I ordered a cup of tea but my friends the house specialty, teh (tea) with milk and gula melaka! They ordered in Cantonese and I didn’t know!
Back to the star attraction, the kolo mee was heavenly. Hands down the best kolo mee or wanton mee we had that weekend, and my favorite meal. The noodles were all delicately handmade upstairs and were akin to the finest angel hair pasta around. When ordering, tell the uncle you want the one with the mushrooms and chicken, done local style.
Coming up next, another late night jaunt to Jalan Alor but first, check out what I found in a KL grocery store. Not 3-in-1 but 4-in1 instant Durian Coffee! Who dares?!?
