Kuala Lumpur - Breakfast at the Bukit Bintang Market

I'd always had a liking for KL-style "chee cheong fun" - its sauce a sweet-salty blend of "taucheo" (fermented brown soy beans), "hoi sin" sauce, sesame oil and other condiments. What I also really liked about KL-style "chee cheong fun" was that one gets to choose from "yong tau fu" morsels: tofu, bittergourd, eggplant, tofu puffs, large chillis - all filled with minced fish forcemeat.

I had a *very* good version of the KL-style "chee cheong fun" this morning at the insanely popular Bukit Bintang Market - its over-flowing enclosed food court reminding me very much of the old Tiong Bahru food centre back in Singapore, before it was upgraded about a decade back.

The most famous stall there was reputedly the "Ah Weng Kor", which served Hainanese coffee, kaya toasts and soft-boiled eggs. To get a seat at Ah Weng Kor, I guess I should have gotten here at 6.30am. But it was 9am this morning when I was here, and folks were standing around waiting for an empty table which, from the looks of it, might take an hour at least!

I had my coffee fix from another stall - and it was thick, delicious and not too sweet, unlike those one would get at a "mamak" (Indian-Muslim eatery) spot in KL. I'll be back at Bukit Bintang Market again soon!
