SWEE SEN CAFÉ REVISITED: KOLO MEE @ KOTA PADAWAN


Went visiting our distant relatives at the Semenggoh Wildlife Centre again. As usual we stopped by Swee Sen Café for a bite and some refreshments. As we had a heavy breakfast before embarking on this mission, we just settled for 2 bowls of Kolo Mee .

For those who haven't read the earlier post on this place, this first corner coffee shop at the 10th. Mile Bazaar, now called Kota Padawan, is famous for its big-size fresh shrimps and home-made fish balls/ shrimp balls Kolo Mee. (See above) Beneath all those Char-Sui, shrimps, fishballs,
shrimp balls and wonton is a bundle of noodle. It used to be RM6 for a bowl like this, but I didn't get to pay the tab this time (it was taken care of by Tim while I was out taking shots of the exterior. He said it was cheap, by his standard).

I was told by Khim Chui (middle pic. below) that the shop has been in existence since 1962. I further kài-pó and ask if he knew of any Wongs, who lived down the road ages ago. I drew a blank... you're not that notorious in your old neighborhood, eddie!

ABOUT THIS BLOG

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
