Most good restaurants and eateries have very interesting and passionate owners. This is definitely one of them.
"Kick Yo Mao Sak and eat your food!!!" Not bad. This fella can spiak England.
(Translation:Keep your mouth shut)
This Uncle is 65 and he zooms up and down, taking orders and occasionally stop by tables to chat. His wife does the cooking.
Anyway, the Chao Chai Bee Hoon is thick bee hoon cooked in Chao Chai soup (This is foochow version of perserved mustard like ham choi or mui choi. Chao Chai is Foochow). According to Uncle, he has to treat his Chao Chai first and he buys the most expensive Foochow red wine to cook his soup. All his fresh fish and prawns are express ferried all the way from Sibu! This is the menu:
Patin and Tapah fish and King Prawns are the highlights.
Chao Chai Bee hoon with Tapah fish. The fish is so fresh that they can still jump out of the bowl. The soup is so sweet and nicely sour befitting the definition of Choa Chai. Each bowl cost RM12.
The King Prawn version. See the prawns? They're as big as my arm! This bowl costs RM18.
The owner's concept is that he only give the best and he believes that his patrons do not mind paying more for quality. Well, he is right. We would wince at the bill but still happily pat our tummies after the meal.
By the way, the owner is actually a very nice guy lah! He came up to us and told us that he'll be letting go of the business by year end as his children had all grown and wanted them to stay with them in KL. So hurry up guys! You still have till December for authentic Foochow noodles! Dont miss it!
