Opposite of New World Park is a lane called Lorong Selamat (turn left when reaching New World Park which is on your right). It is famous with expensive Char Koay Teow. While saving some money to review this fried rice noodle stall, we paid a visit to a restaurant of the same row – Low Eng Hoo Restaurant.
There are some stalls outside of the restaurants. One problem is that the place is flooded with people asking for donations and I had been “entertained” 3 times that afternoon :noword: Sometimes it is just difficult to determine whether the donation is as described or not.
Anyway, the restaurant seems famous with its Ice Kacang so I ordered one even it was a raining day. It tastes good with a scope of ice-cream on top, crunched with peanuts. Yummy~
There is a stall selling Char Koay Teow as well and my friend ordered one. To our horror, the price (RM6.00) is almost similar with the famous one :wtf: The dish is small and I probably need 3 plates to fill up my tummy. Anyway, the Char Koay Teow is fragrant and served with fried pork-fat.
We also ordered some Loh Bak (RM5.00) as well and it is just average.
I ordered one Koay Teow Soup (RM4.50). It come with minced port meat and liver. Unfortunately the fish balls just taste average… like a commercial product for me.
At first glance, the shop provides some decent foods but the price can be better. Rumors said that even though the lane is famous with Char Koay Teow among foreigners, locals are actually not interested to have their meal there for some reasons.
