Ahh, the joy of discovering a new place to eat by completely by chance, something that I haven’t had for a while.

See, I ride a bike to work and whenever possible, I like to explore new places for breakfast en-route to the office. While trying to get a smarter route to work via Duke to Jalan Tun Razak by the way of Jalan Semarak, I got off one turning too early and ended up at this time capsule of a village just a few KMs away from the most developed part of KL.

this place is like a time capsule, stuck in the 80s

The place looked like it’s been stuck in the 90s – poorly paved road, half broken zinc roof, plenty of bikes by the road with helmets left on the seats. That’s when I thought I should stop to pull out my phone with my trusted Google Map app to figure out where I was, and since I was going to do that, I might as well grab breakfast.

That’s how I ended up at Wenl Senh kopitiam at Taman Ayer Panas and ordered by bowl of pork noodle with mee suah (you can have meehun, noodle, or kuih teow)

The pork noodle turned out to be rather good! It’s got 4 major ingredients – intestine, minced pork ball, liver, and my most beloved ingredient – kidney! I also particularly like the way they seasoned the minced pork with sesame oil that gives it a distinct taste.

The best part? This bowl was only RM 4. You’d be hard pressed to find pork noodle in other parts of Klang Valley that still goes for below RM 5.50 or RM 6, but here at this kopitiam next to Taman Ayer Panas wet market, someone hit the pause button 20 years ago.

I think I should check out the wet market in the morning next.

  1. Gosh, I’m looking at the map and I can’t figure out where this is, heh. Time to explore this territory someday =) hmmm, I like pork liver but not a major fan of kidney, I must admit 😀

    Have you tried the pork me at the Mayflower restoran near the BSN brickfields. Since you love pork you should try it.
    I love it so much i been going there since the 80’s.
    To be exact.. the restaurant is behind the BSN brickfields at the carpark.

    • Saravannan: I think I know which one you’re talking about, I’ve yet to go there but will do that soon! 😀

  3. I love old places like this, but I always worry when it feels like they’re undercharging that the stall will just vanish soon

    • Lainie: I think this place’s been around for a long time and will probably continue to stay for a long time. The surrounding places are all offering breakfast dishes at the same price too.

  4. Ooooo OFFAL! NAK!

    i like my pork noodle without innards one!!

  6. It’s years since I’ve been in KL, 30 to be precise. Back then I greatly enjoyed such small noodle places and I’m delighted learn there are still time capsules to be found. As I’m moving to Singapore early next year I’ll make a point of travelling to KL and visiting this precinct.

    • Maximos: this place surprised myself as well, I’m glad you enjoyed it and hopefully your trip would be a good one. 🙂

  7. Innards!!! Slurpsssss!!!!!!

  8. RM4! You got to be kidding! Can hardly find RM4 noodles in KL these days especially pork noodles.

  9. You should try SS15 subang pork noodle first… Very surprised till now you haven’t discovered it… 🙂

    • KC: Actually the twin stalls of it, the one operated by the brother, is right outside my house at SS3 and I do have it quite often. Only problem is the wait time. =D
