Night market (Pasar Malam) at SS2 runs every monday night. There are several type of fancy food sold there that you don’t usually find at local food courts or restaurants. One of them would be the noodle in a box, more appropriately, a plastic container, or in Cantonese, “hap chai min“.
Looks good, no?
This dish is sold by 2 young chaps, and they usually set up their stall nearby the Magnum 4D shop. It’s usually quite busy and frankly it’s hard to miss the stall since the set up is quite unique.
The noodle is similar to those you have in wan tan mee, but of finer variety. You can choose from the 3 ingredients: BBQ pork, pork in sauce, and chicken leg + mushroom. Noodle with single ingredient is sold for RM3.80, combination of any two for Rm 4.00, and all three for RM 4.50. Obviously I ordered with all, it was a no brainer. hehe
Slurps.. the little plastic container is going to be empty in a few minutes
Other than the main ingredients described above. The standard stuff are green onion, fried shallot, mushroom, fungus, green chilli, and of course, the noodle. A thick soup/sauce that tastes pretty creamy is poured over to give you that rich taste.
The dish tastes pretty good, almost like a cross of ordinary chicken leg and mushroom wan tan mee and beef noodle (though this is pork.) I especially like the fact that it is served in the plastic container, makes it easier to eat it at the nearby misai mamak stall. They even give you chopsticks.
Try it, I think you’ll be delighted.
