I’ve arrived in KL and this morning went for a wander in Chinatown and got some pork mee in soup for breakfast at a cafe… I diligently wrote the name and the address of the cafe down on the back of a ticket stub so I could let my dear readers know where to find this. Then, later at a cafe when I was eating some kaya jam on toast, I decided to clean out my wallet and get rid of all my old ticket stubs. This was obviously a rather foolish error.
Anyway, the kedai kopi where I got these noodles was located on the corner of Jl Tun Tan Cheong Lock and Jl Tun HS Lee, I can tell you that much. The soup had a beautiful smoky pork flavor and was not too salty, which I’ve found can often be the pitfall of a pork soup. The noodles were good but otherwise unremarkable. But the real star of this dish were the clumps of minced pork, that had been mixed with garlic and shallots and then boiled, resembling the inside of dumplings, that were served with on top of the noodles along with green vegetables and some slices of pork meat.
Here’s a pic of the seller, if that helps any further with the identification process.
