This is their second outlet, with the first being in the North, and they are famed for the fried porridge, but I would like to give special attention to the mee sua. What I have gotten is the Mixed Pig Organ Braised Mee Sua ($5) which comes with chunks of pig organs from intestines and liver to sliced pork. The secret to this bowl and what makes it unique is the flavour and combination of pig organs, that are nicely cleaned with no funky smell. Topped with coriander, minced garlic and fried shallots, this bowl is super comforting, especially when you are having it during the recent cooling weathers.

What’s the star of the show is definitely their Pork Belly Satay ($1.20) which is charcoal grilled to perfection. Well marinated with the slight bitterness from the burnt ends make this meat on a stick an absolute joy to eat. The satay sauce is nothing to shout about, just focus your attention on the meat.

To prepare this dish, cooked rice grains is submerged in a stock and selected ingredient such as sliced fish, fried fish, clams and even lobsters are added. Depending on what seafood is added, the resulting pao fan will taste slightly different from each bowl but the difference maker has got to be the stock. At the self-proclaimed King of Pao Fan, the stock has an orange hue and fried egg is included in each bowl, which the flavours can get too rich if you order the fried fish option. My recommendation is to get the mixed fish or clams which will add a certain sweetness to the broth. Nonetheless, pao fan is a comforting and easy-to-eat rice dish that will be popular with many for some time.

While queuing you can clearly see the master-in-training on the frying pan and hear the clink and clank of the spatula chopping up the steamed radish cake before he pours in a huge amount of eggs into the mixture. The fried carrot cake is smaller in pieces and as a result, each bite has a nice char and bite to it as the edges are crisped up. If you like your carrot cake eggy and crispy, this is the place to go to satisfy your cravings.

After witnessing it make its rounds on Instagram and so many foodies raving positive reviews about it, I am glad that I can finally understand (and tasted) why this bowl of Signature Bee Tai Mak is worth my traveling time from the East to the West. On the first glance, it might look simple and plain, but you will be proven otherwise from the first bite. Without any chilli sauce or vinegar added into it, this bowl of bee tai mak packs so much flavour from their secret blend of sauce and pork lard that it can knock out a boxer in the first round. Throw in some chilli padi if you can take the heat, give it a good mix and savour the multiple layers of flavour and texture from the bite of the bee tai mak to the bouncy fishball, fish roll and fish ‘rulers’. This is definitely a bowl that will be part of my memorable eats’ list and a place that I will highly recommend you come try.

Another gem is the mee pok, and this particular type of noodle is something that I will usually avoid ordering as I am not a huge fan of its flavour and texture, however, the mee pok that was prepared here still retained an al dente texture without the alkaline flavour.

Fast forward a couple of years later from a hiatus, the original owners are finally back in business, now at a “cafe-esque” setting inside an industrial building. What they have stood firm from the beginning and now is their handmade soon kuehs, the one thing that’s in their menu with several flavours available in limited quantities each day. From the classic ($1.60), to ku chai ($2), haebi hiam ($2.50) and smoked chicken ($3), these soon kuehs are delicately made, with a crystal chewy skin and an abundance of fillings. There are no dark sweet sauce or sambal chilli served, the best way to enjoy these are as it is.

What gives this stall a unique identity is that it’s run entirely by an elderly man, who will probably retire anytime soon, hopefully with someone in sight to take over the hawker heritage. Before that day eventually comes that uncle retires, do drop by his stall and give him the much earned respect and support, and at the same time try out the chwee kueh which has a character and edginess to it. The cai po (preserved radish) is not the usual finely chopped up pieces as his version is slightly chunkier with a crunchy bite and has a saltier taste than sweet.

Probably we had too high expectations but this plate of roast meats with rice seem somewhat underwhelming for us. Probably it’s an off day for them which I believe on their good days, this would have been an excellent plate. If I have to pick something I like from this plate, it would have to be the roasted pork and the tangy chilli dip.

The moreish gravy, plus the homemade meatballs and fish flakes are the components that made this dish a must-try. Mix them well, together with the black vinegar and sambal chilli, and it creates a very comforting noodle dish.

The noodle is cooked to the right al dente texture while the sauce that is mixed in it has pork lard oil, making it very flavourful and appetising. And you can just look at the generous serving of ingredients such as pork liver, sliced pork and minced meat that comes with it.

However, we were truly amazed and satisfied with what we have gotten. The Signature Chicken Wing Set ($5.90) came after a 10-15 minutes wait, served on a paper box, with a scoop of coconut infused rice that is topped with a spicy hae bee hiam, deep fried ikan bilis & peanuts, a sunny side egg and a portion of the sweet spicy sambal. To me, the important elements of a good nasi lemak is the nasi and sambal, the rice they definitely got it right with the lemak-ness but I would prefer a spicier and less sweet sambal. The supporting cast, beside the rice and sambal, were done very well as the ikan bilis and peanuts were freshly fried and the chicken wing is nicely marinated with turmeric.
