After trying the beef noodle at Lai Foong just a few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to have dinner at KL the other day, and naturally the idea of having the lala meehun from the same kopitiam would be a sound one, and it was.
The lala meehun stall usually operates from around 10 am in the morning and offers their various dishes, including Hokkien mee, lala meehun, and more all the way till around 8 pm.
I went there in the evening right, and with the restaurant around half full, the wait time was around 20 minutes or so. If you’re there at the usual busy lunch hours, expect to wait for quite a bit before your bowl of noodle is served. They do take their time to cook.
Luckily, the dish was worth the wait. Pretty good amount of decent size lala in a soup base that’s spicy from ginger and infused with decent amount of Chinese cooking wine, there’s also a hint of herbal taste to it as well, which I thought gives it a good depth.
If you’re hungry for some soupy lala in KL, this stall at Lai Foong would be a good choice, but I’d advise avoid the busy lunch hours and you’d likely have a good experience.
