           Jotaro's Food Review          
Taman Bunga Raya, Setapak, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia  - June 2014
Every once in a while we chance upon a simple food that is so good that it surprises us that good food can come out from a simple place. One such place is Mali's Corner, a road side stall at Taman Bunga Raya in Setapak. They serve very, very good Goreng Kuey Teow Basah (Wet Fried Flat Noodles).

What is Kuey Teow Basah?
Well, basically it is flat noodles fried such that it has some gravy when done cooking. Bean sprouts are added during the frying. This one here is different as they use lots of prawns and prawn soup in the frying.

The dish ends up with a lovely prawn flavour as the thick gravy coats the flat noodles well and perhaps partly seep into them. I ate slowly, savouring the prawny taste with each mouthful and then slowly attacked the prawns.

Although the stall is located on a wide roadside island in front of a row of shop-houses in Taman Bunga Raya, it is well patronized nightly. There are shaded seating and open air seating. In front of the stall, a queue is always there.
A lot of students patronize this stall too as close by is Kolej Tengku Abdul Rahman.

The cook is good and fast, frying several plates at a time. With a woomph, flames get caught in the wok; perhaps this is part of the frying process to make the kuey teow slighlty burnt in order to bring out the flavour.
There are two frying woks and several cooks, they take turns to fry as the cooking seems to be non-stop. 

Soon plates of Kuey Teow Basah we lined up waiting to be served to patrons.
Are ours among those? Hopefully, as we were getting pretty hungry.

For drinks, I had this Ais Bandung (rose syrup with evaporated milk). This one looks slightly fizzy, perhaps they have "pulled" it like those Teh Tarik. It was nice and thirst quenching.

For some variety, they serve Fried Chicken too. This can be taken by itself of with rice.

The fried chicken is crisply good and they are fried there and then.

Their priced list (at time of this blog); a small plate cost RM5-00, a big one RM6-00. The special cost RM7-50. They special comes with lots of prawns (at least 10), if you are into prawns then it's okay. But if you are watching your health then perhaps order one big and a special to share the prawns with a friend.
