With the start to the new school year our weekend schedule alters to accommodate Brendan’s need to attend tuition. He’s been attending Cikgu Ramlah’s Bahasa Malaysia (or is it called Bahasa Melayu now? I can’t keep up) classes in Ampang since he was ten years old, and this year it would be no different.
Once his class was over, we thought it would only make perfect sense for us to pay a visit to our favourite Chinese food court. A clear indication of how much we love this place, we’ve already posted about Chuan Hupp no less than three times here, here and here.
|hello there, our old friend|
Today is a strange day, in that we’re been visiting past haunts and that we’ve had nothing but noodles. And even stranger? Brendan asked for his customary 1Char Kueh Teow while I had my perpetually beloved firm favourite, the Beef Noodle Soup. It’s turning out to be a sort of Groundhog Day for us, if you know what we mean. To buck the trend Cat thought to try the 2Hokkien styled Yee Mee.
1flat rice noodles stir-fried over very high heat with light and dark soy sauce, chilli, a small quantity of belachan, whole prawns, de-shelled cockles, bean sprouts, chopped Chinese chives and egg
2chewy noodles made from wheat flour and egg braised in thick dark soy sauce with pork, squid, fish cake and cabbage as the main ingredients and cubes of pork fat fried until crispy and stir-fried over a raging fire
|a quiet stall at the back|

|my darling stall|
|my darling dish|
|but Cat adventurously tried something new|
|chia̍h kah pá!|
The verdict? The fact that we’re been here oh so many times should undoubtedly speak to our adulation of this food court. And the damage? Even with a rise in the price of the Beef Noodle Soup (RM5 to RM6) it weight in with an incredibly inexpensive sum of RM20.70 which includes herbal tea all round. Restoran Chuan Hupp absolutely epitomizes the everyday food for the everyday man, so it's no small wonder that we keep coming back here, eh?
