When mugging deep into the night, you started to have information overload and the growling of your stomach grew louder. Then the light of hope blinked on the handphone, one of your driving buddies asking you out for supper. Bring it on!
People staying in the west would probably know more about this stretch of shophouses opposite Beauty World offering excellent supper choices. We settled for the less-crowded Al Azhar and was spoilt for choice with its comprenhensive menu: Chinese, Malay, Indian, Western, Thai, they got it all covered!
Iced Teh Cino ($2.00)
I think this is pretty much a standard drink when eating at places like this. Would be better if its just a little bit less sweet.
Mee Goreng ($3.50)
With a deceptive fiery red appearence, the mee goreng was only lightly spiced and had a good charred taste to it. Fried with cabbage, eggs and minced chicken, the simple combination was good enough to satisfy my carbo craving!
Mee Hokkien ($4.00), Cheese Mushroom Thosai ($2.80)
This was our first attempt having hokkien mee in a non-chinese place. Honestly, it was not bad with "wok-hei"ness and a good mix of beehon and yellow noodles. But I think the savoury sauce lacks that bit of push factor that probably only lard could give.
I'm still getting confused by the sauces that came with the thosai, but luckily it was not the case of tasting alike and was rather good to dip in.
Chicken/Mutton Satay ($0.60 per stick)
We did not had the power satay that IeatIshootIpost raved about, but the normal ones were already pretty good. Even the mutton ones were well-marinated with a slight crisp coating the tender meat. Chomp down every single one gleefully!
