My bowl runneth over

It's Sunday! Where do we go for a good wallop session after church... hmmmm......

<span class=
When we 1st saw Queen's Park, once upon a time, many-many moons ago, we were pretty excited. Queen’s Park is located on the corner of where Jalan Shelley and Jalan Peel intersect (a really OLD part of KL town!) and has an unusual open-air concept that distinguishes itself from the traditional shopping malls or retail outlets in KL.

Unfortunately though, this place has never quite picked up. I remember a year or so ago, they even had open-air concerts for local talents of Malaysia to strut their stuff. Even as things were picking up, the crowd began to dwindle insidiously. I guess this sort of retail concept is no rival for bigger shopping malls such as MidValley Megamall with more ‘eye-candy’ to offer in a better more strategic location.

Anyway, we like Queen’s park, if nothing more than to just browse the MNG and Esprit Factory Outlets… however, dwindling or not, the more important fact is that, it is situated directly across from Carrefour and a corner coffee shop which we love to frequent!

I have heard of wall-to-wall carpeting.. but this looks like wall-to-wall eating! Those little yellow signs and those hungry patrons packing this old coffee-shop tight, with hardly any breathing space, tell us that we have arrived:D

So, what's good here?
.

At RM4.00 only....

THIS!
Gosh, the bowl of Har-Mee (Prawn Mee) is so huge, it's literally spilling out of the bowl. And the prawns they give you are big too (not just the tiny dried shrimp, but the fresh bigger ones). Also, not just one or two, but FOUR prawns!
And not just prawn, good old fashion sotong(squid) too;D

See? I kid you not...

When my parent's visit, it's a real EAT-FEST! Like, we also put away,

<span class=
THIS (curry mee at RM4.50)
.

<span class=
...this which is a little sweet for me, but which the husband loves, (mee rojak RM4.00)
.
.
and,
<span class=
THIS - the killer amazing Char-Kwey-Teow. (fried noodles). Extra SEE-HUM gives it one helluva kick - yummie! (ask the man not to cook the see-hum, but to put the raw see-hum on the piping hot noodle, and just fold it in!) That way the heat cooks the cockles .. but ever so slightly! Ooo yea.. the runnier the better! haha

Check out this makan place the next time you are in the area:D
