I have heard about this famous char kuay teow at Restoran Seng Lee, Jalan Batai, Damansara Heights for some time. Since it is a 5-10 minutes walk from my company and that I am free at this point of time (given that I am serving my notice period), I decided to walk down there for lunch. Well, I actually passed by the hawker shop few times, but after having looked at the way the char kuay teow was cooked, I was disdained initially – as a major portion is cooked at one go.
So, I placed my order with the man owner, who jots down the order. It is difficult to find a seat there, but given that I am alone – I was contented to share a table of four with three seated persons. Besides the char kuay teow, I made my drink order – which one single man handed. The drink was RM1.90, it is 20 cents more expensive than it is in the Chinese economy rice food stall in Pusat Bandar Damansara.
I waited for around 30 minutes, till my char kuay teow order came in (cost RM5). Well, quite disdained looking actually – to me. I made an order with chili but it came without – never mind. After tasting it, though hungry, I don’t think it is “that” delicious. Quite disappointing for a 30 minutes wait, I would say. So, will I return? Unlikely, unless I have a HUGE craving for char kuay teow.
