One of the biggest advantage of riding to work is the flexibility in breakfast choices. No longer am I confined to the route of LRT or just the food stalls within walking distance of the office. All I need to do is to leave home half an hour earlier, and so that’s what I often do these days, exploring breakfast places around KL in the wee hours.

The area behind Berjaya Times Square is one of my favorite places to explore. Being one older part of town, it’s littered with many old school eateries.

And it was by random choice that I ended up at this nameless kopitiam at Jalan Brunei just behind the Caltex gas station. Business always seems pretty brisk in the morning, so I thought I should give it a try.

There is only a stall operating in the morning, offering wantan mee and sui kao mee.

The wantan mee (a tad under RM 5) comes with everything you’d expect in a plate of wantan mee and some. There’s wantan, minced meat, spring onion, charsiu, pickled chili, and even lard. It can take 10-15 minutes before your plate of wantan mee is served, the noodle is springy, the combination of various pork ingredients work their wonders, and is everything you’d want in a wholesome hearty old school breakfast.

the sui-kao is very yummy as well

Their sui kao too are of top quality, packed with black fungus, minced carrot, pork, and prawns.

If you are a fan of wan tan mee or sui kao mee, this is a place to check out. I’ve been back several times since.

    • may your way to hell be a pleasant one.

      looking from the standard of hygiene at this place,
      most probably you’d be in hell because of food poisoning.
