It was a lazy Sunday afternoon and I only managed to get to having brunch past 1pm in the afternoon. We decided to go to the nearby restaurant New Yew Sang at SS5 to satisfy our stomachs.
note: Not in business anymore, owner passed away from heart attack.
Since the steamed rice stall has pretty much sold off everything except a couple different choices, I decided to try something else and spotted this oddity in a Chinese kopitiam, a mee goreng stall. I figured if an Indian guy can stay in business in this environment, the food can’t be bad.
mee goreng, extra spicy and extra sotong
For the uninformed, mee goreng traditionally comes with yellow noodle, bean sprout, fried tofu, cucur udang, potato, vegetable, and of course, the all important marinated cuttle fish or squid.
I ordered a plate of mee goreng, extra hot, and with extra cuttle fish. When it arrived, the dish was smelling great and looking great. I snapped a couple pictures and squeezed the lime on the noodle before burying myself in right away. The taste was just great, all the ingredients provided their different texture and taste, contributing to the overall savory and spicy satisfaction. The extra cuttle fish was well worth the money too, it was firm and tasted just the way I like it.
I didn’t leave anything behind
The plate of mee goreng was RM 4.00 due to the extra sotong option, otherwise it goes for RM 3.00. The same stall also offers mee rebus, rojak, as well as maggie soup and maggie goreng.
New Yew Sang is on Jalan Bahagia, a stone’s throw away from KJ Giant
