It was a hot Saturday afternoon (it's always hot anyway) and my partner suggested Curry Mee at Damansara Kim (at a coffee shop know as Restoran Golden Kim Wah). As far as he was concerned, this one is way superior to what he had at Annie-1.
Of course I was keen because, well, the Curry Mee at Annie-1 was not that great during my last two visits. Since we ventured out quite late (after 2:00pm), he told me that the stall might be closed since they sell out pretty fast. And if there was no curry mee to be had, our next option would be fried kueh teow.
As predicted, the stall was closed. I wasn't too disappointed because there was fried kueh teow to look forwards to.
There are a few Robert's Penang Fried Kueh Teow branches around and my partner told me that this guy here (the one standing in front of the wok) is THE Robert. I have eaten Robert's fried kueh teow before but that was quite some time ago.
Our drinks. Teh-O no sugar to hah..hah...wash away the fats. My partner gently chided me for wanting iced tea. He said that the oils from the fried kueh teow will coagulate in my tummy. Really.
My partner's order arrived first, no chili.
Lots of big fat beansprouts there. But no, there were no cockles.
Mine came shortly after, with (very scant) chili.
It looks like mine had less taugeh. Somehow I felt that the kueh teow was lacking in wok hei. I did not mention this to my partner as I didn't want to come across sounding like a fussy old pot. Nanti he won't take me out for makan again. But hey, I still enjoyed the fried koay teow and hope to catch the curry mee someday.
