We brunched at Kek Seng Kopitiam which is located along Penang Road, just across from Komtar. I remember having ice-cream here when I was really young like perhaps 7 years old? Geee... been so long since I last stepped into this kopitiam. I still remember the booth seats haha... and they're still there.
I got myself fried mee jawa (RM2.50), yeah FRIED. First time I came across a fried one. It came dry, like normal fried mee but this one tasted a bit tangy. Not bad at all and luckily the portion is not too much cos my hubby went overboard and ordered so much stuff.
Hubby got a plate of char koay teow which is nothing to shout about since there were better ones.
We ordered 3 pieces of popiah basah and 4 pie tees (RM5.80) from a stall, opted to have some broth over the popiah. Sighhh after the Padang Brown's version, this really pales in comparison but its really not that bad. We loved the pie tee though with my boiboi finishing two. Topping the turnips fillings were strips of omelette. The chilli sauce went very well with the whole combi.
We also have a plate of loh bak (RM6.80) which consisted of 2 items ie. ngoh hiang and something like cucur udang.
My boiboi got a bowl of koay teow tng (RM2.50) which he can't finish. Not that it wasn't good, just that there were too many other distractions like pie tee and popiah on the table haha. Moreover, he was eyeing the ice-cream and jelly at our next table. Most prolly saving space for that later, smart boy there.
Thank goodness the portion were quite small, else there would have been wastage. Anyhow, we packed up those stuff that we can't finish. We need to leave room for these yummy homemade durian ice-cream!!!! They're so fragrant and smooth. They were served on an old school plate and came in the tiniest scoops ever! Darn... lucky thing we were quite stuffed, otherwise, not sure how many scoops we could down in one go.
Since my boiboi doesn't take durian, it was rather funny to see him telling the ahpek in his angmoh slang Cantonese (yeah yeah they understood Cantonese here haha) that he doesn't want durian ice-cream in his ice-kacang with jelly. Kekeke the ahpek ask him what flavour and he replied strawberry. There were a few options of ice-kacang here, the one here is red bean and corn that came with one piece of jelly and 2 scoops of ice-cream. Other than the strawberry, the other given is a peanut which if I'm not mistaken is another of their famous homemade ice-cream. The ice-cream plus ice-kacang costed RM5.20.
Hubby was craving for durians after all these and ask the ahpek where to get durians hahaha... Luckily they told him not to go Balik Pulau as they may be too expensive and gave him directions to get them else where. However, it's too bad we were too early for durians. There weren't any and told us to come back the next week for them! Sighhh... I missed all those thick, bitter sweetish ones from Balik Pulau.
On our way back to KL, we got caught in a massive jam for more than 2 freaking hours, well just to pass thru Jelapang toll! The next time we're going to skip PLUS! @$%&
