Yes, i’m guilty again as charged of NOT updating my blog regularly enough – sorry, things have been abit other-worldly now that I am back to the workforce and the daily grind. Althought the daily grind’s …shall i say….inputs and outputs are rather different from before and time is definitely more flexible so I am not complaining.
Since our move to Shah Alam, we’ve discovered a very delish and apparently famous (deemed by the Malaysian Street Food Guide 2009 and most of the non-muslim public) MENG KEE char siew rice in Glenmarie.
The coffeeshop is clean enough although I absolutely must warn you that going there during lunchtime on weekdays between 1230pm til 130pm is nothing short of catastrophic. As there are many other hawker shops in that area and obviously insufficient parking spaces, cars brutally line the streets (on BOTH sides of the road) in a double-parking nightmare. So if you are the poor soul navigating past this street (which suddenly becomes 1 way), good luck to you.
Now, when we had discovered this shop, we had the chicken rice and char siew -which is proudly proclaims as Charcoal Stove roasted. Its very yummy. (I think my Muslim friends know well enough what Char Siew is, so its a NO NO for you guys!) The steamed Pak Chum Kai (white steam chicken) is wonderfully smooth and tasty as well.
One fine day when we managed to wake up in a godly hour, we headed to Meng Kee and discovered they had the wan tan noodles (only served for breakfast) which I discovered later (in yet another visit) that it lasts up to about 11am.
On weekends, people call up first to make orders and come to collect their to-go’s later. Again, waiting time during a weekend lunch period is about 30 minutes for a Ta-Pau! So yes, go real early. If you need directions, make the turn left after the intersection that leads you to Giant Shah Alam Stadium if you are coming from NKVE Bukit Jelutong exit. You will see shophouses and take the second right turn. The shop is on a row which is the 2nd turning to the left afterwards.
