Boss: “I can’t find any parking space. You hungry yet?”
Me: “Em… not yet but it’s lunch time anyway.”
Boss: Come, let’s go out and eat today.”
Me: “At where?”
I went down to find her and off we go to a nearby place for lunch. She claimed that the Lam Mee here is nice.
Tucked away at a little corner of the shoplots opposite the single storey linked houses at Taman Cheras, Yulek, the premise looked a bit worn down. But that didn’t deterred the crowd to come here for their noodles and yong tau foo. But to eat here, one have to prepared to be seated beside the drain and withstand the heat from the warm weather.
Since boss raved so much about their Lam Mee, I decided to have the original one (RM4.00). Thick yellow noodle, beansprouts and chicken strips swimming in the dark, slightly eggy gravy (I gave all the shrimps to my boss :p ), I feel that their Lam Mee is above average. The good is the absence of the alkaline taste which sometimes come with the yellow noodle. The gravy is smooth and not too starchy.
We also order few pieces of their home made yong tau foo such as stuffed okra (lady’s fingers), fish ball, squid ball and stuffed fu chok which costs RM0.80 per piece. The fu chok is good while the others are just normal. The okra is kinda tasteless.
Boss went for the Meehoon Lam Mee (RM4.00). Sorry for the messy pic cos she dug into the noodle as soon as the noodle arrived on the table. 😛 Ah, I almost forgot that they have a very good home made chilli sauce to go with the noodles too.
I heard that their prawn mee and curry laksa are not too bad, maybe shall drop by again to try them.
Directions: Take the Cheras/Kajang route from Jalan Loke Yew, go straight till you come to Taman Midah (on your right) with Toyota Showroom and Old Town Kopitiam (on your left). You’ll see the Middle Ring Road 2 (MRR2) flyover. Instead of going on the flyover, turn left, down to the roundabout and take the 9 o’ clock direction. You’ll come to a traffic light, turn right and go straight up (pass BHP petrol station) till you see 7-Eleven. Go further up, into a narrower lane and you’ll see Cosy Corner on your right.
