KY eats – Teow Chew Fishball Noodle at Restoran Mei Keng, Off Jalan 222

Restoran Mei Keng is one of my routine Sunday pre-futsal breakfast stops, located just off Jalan 222, the restaurant occupies the other corner lot on the same row of shop lots that also houses the more famous Ahwa Hokkien Mee (night)

I’ve decided to give the Teow Chew Fishball noodle stall a try. My reasoning was simple, if they are confident enough to deep fried that big bunch of fish paste, it must be at least decent.

Like most places, you get to choose from a variety of noodle, my pick was kuih teow, but you also have options of yee mee, yellow noodle, meehun, mee suah and such.

The bowl came with a piece of seaweed, 3 fish balls, as well as 3-4 pieces of fish cake. There’s also lettuce, some pepper, and garlic oil, and a side of cili padi as condiment. While the soup itself was rather subtle, I thought the fish ball and fishcake were really good, bouncy and flavorful without being overpowering, they claim that it’s made with giant garupa meat, and I think the quality shows.

Satisfying breakfast indeed, would not hesitate to order again.
