We covered this restaurant some time back. After 'migrating' to Kuala Lumpur in September 2002 we lived for a time with my sister in Subang Jaya before finding a condo to rent here in Taman Miharja, so coming back here every once in a while can be nostalgic. For a while, Brendan used to attend the kindergarten 'Tadika Intelek' nearby. The roar of the trains (from the LRT tracks a stone's throw away) was something we eventually were impervious to.

The restaurant is located at the corner of the intersections of the main road, Jalan Lombong and the turn off to Taman Miharja, Jalan Bijih. This and Restoran Miharja were our default Chinese restaurants when we used to live here. Apart from these, there are also a slew of Malay, Tom Yam and Mamak stalls as well and living here we were not spoilt for choice when it came to dining out.

Coming here, I will always order the 1Curry Mee Hoon, and there was no exception this occasion as well. Brendan tried the 1Curry Kuey Teow while Cat ordered her favourite 2Kuey Teow Soup.
1Mee Hoon (string thin rice vermicelli) and Kuey Teow (flat rice noodles) with spicy curry soup, chili/sambal, coconut milk, and a choice of dried tofu, cockles, prawns, cuttlefish, chicken, egg and mint leaves.
2Flat rice noodles in a soup with minced pork and/or pork cuts typically made of pork and/or chicken bones and dried squid garnished with fried minced garlic, thinly sliced scallions and fresh cilantro (coriander) sprig

The curried noodles here have never failed to impress me, and it was no different this time around. The curry is thick, flavourful with the right amount of salty and sweet; generous portions of chicken cutlets always warm my heart. Cat enjoyed her Kuey Teow Soup as well; sometime she’s been having time and again since way back when.
Despite the dishes undergoing a recent price hike the damage (including a round of the evergreen herbal tea for everyone) came to a mind-bogglingly low total of only RM21.50! The everyday food for the everyday person? Heck yeah! Would we be coming back (a silly question, don’t you think?) here? Heck, HECK yeah!
