Kedai Kopi Jia Xiang

One of these nights when you had a light dinner because you want to loose those stubborn 2 kgs before Chinese New Year, and it is 10 pm and your stomach is acting like it is possessed, head out to Kedai Kopi Jia Xiang in Lintas, behind Brass Monkey Cafe N Bar. In my (humble) opinion, this is one of the best places for sang yuk mien (fresh pork noodles) in KK. I know I've told you that Kedai Kopi Kah Hing in Taman Mesra, Penampang is the best, and it still is very very good, but ? is equally good. The place is open for breakfast and lunch too but somehow the soup's not as good as at dinner. I'm told the mom runs the place in the day while the daughter takes over at night, and somehow daughter seems to cook better than mom. Another plus about eating there at night is that parking is easy whereas in the day--well, you know the parking situation in Lintas. Plus it always feels like an oven there in the day.

The best time to go is after 9pm, when the soup's concentrated after all the previous orders are cooked in the same huge cauldron of soup.

We had a rare supper there recently and you can see we are keeping to our dieting because for once we didn't have any offal. Wey also ordered pork belly in herbal soup (bak kut teh) from another stall in the same shop.

Soup sang yuk mee fun/fresh pork fine rice noodles. You have to ask for the pork crackling mince. I think they are a bit stingy on the meat toppings compared with Kah Hing.

Soy sauce-tossed wheat noodles with sang yuk soup.

Pork belly bak kut teh. I didn't find this very good but I only had one piece, in keeping with my diet control.

I will loose those 2 kgs. Then I can eat all I want again, especially in 2 1/2 weeks' time (CNY). But wait, my stomach is rippling and it's only 8:57 pm. Maybe I'll see you there tonight.

Is that wat they call the noodle in KK? We call it G-Yuk Fan (pork meat noodle) here and usually they will throw in pork balls and if you request, liver and intestine.

Hope you will lose your 2kgs soon.

Hi Terri,

ehh Salim in lintas do sell pork noodle ahh? or do mean the Chinese restaurant besides it? I go there quite often (especially when I got hang over - then I lazy to cook :P)

For Salim, yup I quite agree with (it's one of the best place to hang out for supper). My fav food there would be the crispy deep fried Bitter gourd and roti tisu.

The pork soup in the Chinese restaurant is really tasty! For a change, I would suggest another restaurant at 'Fuk koi' (nearby to KK High school area). They also provide a very tasty pork soup/pork noodle soup in generous amount!

Cheers Terri!

hA! I like this shop! I always go eat with my darl after 11pm!
hey, R u using d90 to take the pic? or may be i m wrong

Agnes aka Ric3y said...

Was the shop near to the Salim's??? There is two coffee shops selling Shang Nyuk Mee there if I'm not mistaken and there is one called something Sinsuran (Sinsuran has a coffee shop selling Shang Nyuk Mee) and another coffee shop not really knowing the name...

Hardly went to Lintas already, its always jammed!!!

terri@adailyobsession said...

val: no not salim, but the shop across the street. i'm going to check out 'Fuk Koi'(r u pulling my leg on this one??never noticed a coffeeshop by this ridiculous name in tt area. is it near pick n pay?

denise: no i'm not using the d90. it's too sophisticated 4 me. i'll wait till yi is good at it n show me how to use it.

agnes: ok, i really have to go check the name n update this post.

The restaurant name is Jia Siang.. its at the corner of the block, behind brass monkey right? if yes, then its the one.. btw, the indian restaurant opposite it is not Restaurant Salim, its Restoran Arifah or something, but definitely not Salim :D

How come nobody blog about the Original San Nyuk Mian in Sinsuran? It was started in 1982, and still in operation until today.

All the other shops are just imitating the original recipe, kinda sad to think about it.
