Chua Brother Coffeeshop, Tengkat Tung Shin, KL


This coffeeshop is located along Tengkat Tung Shin.  It has been around for years, being passed down from the father to his sons.  Yeh yeh always yearns to come here when he craves for fish ball noodles though I find it's nothing to shout about as one can easily find better fish balls around klang valley.  Guess it's the nostalgia factor that keeps him coming back as he literally grew up on that street.

Tengkat Tong Shin houses rows of impressive heritage structures, once a place to call home by some families, have been around since the colonial times. The exterior still exudes a bit of history but to keep up with the times, the street has been modernized and turned into an entertainment area.

Walking down memory lane, holding hands,  yeh yeh and mah mah pointed at a spot in front of the coffeeshop where a cherry tree once stood and how beautiful it was when it blossomed.  They pointed out to Ian the house they lived in during their early years of marriage, now being converted to a reflexology centre and that hubby was born there.  When they craved for beef noodles, Ngau Kee was just across the road.  They just had to place order and it would be delivered to the doorstep. 


The taste was good though nothing to shout about.

We all love the loh mee, thick gooey gravy with generous amount of lettuce and "liu"

On a Sunday during lunch hours

I heard that the pork noodles was pretty good too and it's already in my must try list the next time we visit the coffeeshop.
