A couple of weeks ago during one of those days where my regular lunch colleagues were nowhere to be found, I decided to do a bit of exploration around Bukit Bintang looking in hope of finding something out of the usual lunch options.

After seemingly forever, I found myself wondering towards almost the end of Jalan Alor, and this is when I noticed quite a few people seated under colorful beach umbrellas enjoying something that smells pretty good.

And so I walked into Beh Brothers restaurant and stood in front of the one busy hawker stall – Sister Drunken Chicken Noodle.

Upon the operator’s recommendation, I ordered the drunken chicken noodle, with egg as extra.

it's hot, long wait, and expensive, but I'll come again, yums!

It took a good 20-25 minutes before my bowl of drunken chicken mee is served, and for a hawker dish at a kopitiam, it was a pretty pricey RM 12 too.

Then I smell it, and took a spoonful of soup into my mouth. It was laden with sweet, sweet taste of Chinese wine, the noodle was soaked with the very same sweetness, and there were intestine, chicken, liver, and plenty of those ginger too. It turned out to be better than expected, it was the best drunken chicken noodle (or soup) that I’ve tasted. By the time I was done the bowl was practically dry of all the rice wine broth.

The fried egg was an interesting addition to the dish but I think something that can be omitted without sacrificing anything.

The stall operates for breakfast and lunch crowd, and they have other options like fish, prawn, pork, and even frog. Looks like I’ll go there again pretty soon.

    RM12 for a bowl? that’s pretty pricey. I hope you didn’t get drunk
