Chinatown's Chu Cheung Fun

chinatown chu cheong fun

If you see the above place in Chinatown area, do stop by for some plain old chu cheung fun (flat rice noodles). The name of this place is Yui Kee (Correct or not??? Sorry I can't read Chinese. Anyone can confirm??) It's on Jalan Hang Lekir, opposite the famous Air Mata Kuching stall or besides the Hon Kee Porridge. Cross order of porridge and chu cheung fun is allowed when you sit at either places. Yui Kee is opened for breakfast and lunch.

Chu cheung fun here is entirely different from your usual chu cheung fun stall as they serve chu cheung fun without any other condiments, read - yong tau foo (stuffed variety of beancurd and vegetables)! Yeah, you eat them plain with the special sauce which tasted different from your normal fermented soy bean paste sauce. This sauce tasted a bit like peanut sauce but then I really can't tell what's in it. I liked mine with some chilli sauce and pickled green chillies. The smooth chu cheung fun topped with some sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds, wahhh bliss! A wonderful tummy liner in the morning.

There is another stall nearby serving similar chu cheung fun. The stall is located at Madras Lane, behind Pak Peng Building. Over here, you can order the yong tau foo from another stall to go with your plain chu cheung fun. I don't really like going there as the stalls tend to be territorial. It had gotten very confusing as certain stalls allowed cross ordering only from certain stalls. Urrghh...

  1. I've tried the one behind Pak Peng building... very nice also. Sigh... brings back poignant memories lor - the last time I makan the CCF there was with my late father a couple of years back.
