At the intersection between Lebuh Melayu and Lebuh Pantai, we sort of intrigued by the crowds around these two hawker stalls at the nameless corner coffee shop. We made ourselves to try them out during one of our dating night and we are delighted with what we found.

Char Hor Fun was ran by an old couples, they may be a little disorder on customer orders and sequence. Aunty made some mistakes on serving late customer before us, also missing out adding egg. However, their char hor fun was great with strong wok hei.

The flat noodle and vermicille were wok fried with strong wok hei, coated with sticky starchy gravy, salt to taste. The extra creamy egg has then lightened up the dishes, add on the given pickled chili for some sour kick.


Aunty was mistakenly served us Char Hor Fun without egg, we thought just save the hassle and give this version a try. The gravy was starchy, coupling with mild oyster sauce, a little bit peppery. The char hor fun does not come dull without prawn and fish.

We did not want to missed this Koay Teow Soup, so we have this as extra after Char Hor Fun. It was never easy to make a bowl of delicious koay teow soup, as the the soup has to be plain. The chef did a good job on creating the soup which balance between sweet and salt. Chewy fish ball and chicken slices usually come with the koay teow, sprinkle of spring onion and garlic flakes have definitely heighten up the taste.
