Ever since I was back from my Kuching trip in July, I have been craving for kolo mee. The nearest kolo mee fix I could find in PJ would be the stall which operates inside Ming Tien food court at Taman Megah (dinner only), but it is pale in comparison with the one I had in Kuching.
Then one day, while Googling about kolo mee, I saw Masak-masak’s old post about this kolo mee place at Restoran Gembira, Taman Megah!
CK and I decided to drop by the shop on one sunny Sunday morning. The shop was packed to the brim with hungry patrons but we managed to secure a table at the corner. It doesn’t take long before we spotted the stall, manned by an elderly couple and helped by a younger lady who doesn’t talk (the daughter, maybe?). The elder lady, also the cook dons a fancy, round hat and cute apron – really easy to recognise.
Both CK and I agreed that the noodle’s is thicker here, resembling instant noodle’s texture. Although the noodle is tossed with a mixture of garlic oil and some lard, the lardy taste was quite mild. The minced pork was okay, but as expected, the char siu slices were a tad dry and hard. While CK lamented that the noodle doesn’t taste any similar and as good as Sin Lian Hin’s version, I personally feel that it is way better than the Ming Tien food court’s.
The search for the best kolo mee in Klang Valley is still ongoing…
