an ex-colleague who lives in PJ Old Town brought me to this hawker area known as “Under the Big Tree behind Chen Moh“. Lol. Sounds so vague but it’s not for the locals who are familiar with this chinese elementary school. The hawker stalls cover quite a big area so it’s not easy to miss.
There’s quite a variety of hawker fare available here and apparently the economy rice (经济饭) is very good and cheap. Must try that the next time. But this time we opted for something hot and soupy, hence our choice of Prawn Noodles. The uncle manning the stall also sells curry noodles but it was already sold out by the time we arrived. And that was before 1:30p.m too! Brisk business eh?
My verdict on the Prawn Noodles is that it was very flavourful and tasty, with the sweetness of the prawn stock. Finished every drop of the soup. Only complaint was perhaps the accompanying sambal which wasn’t “oomph” enough. still, it was a very satisfying lunch.
