ONE of the most recent discoveries I made was a kari laksa stall in SS19, Subang Jaya, Selangor.
Thanks to sifu Lee Hong Leng and his makan kaki Franky Lim, I was able to give the kari mee at Choy Kee coffee shop a try.
Lee, a kari laksa enthusiast, would travel the width and length of the country in search of stalls and coffee shops that offer this spicy noodle treat.
He said the kari laksa stall in Choy Kee was managed by a woman who also serves chap fan (mixed rice).
“Hey Sam, this multi-tasking woman can really cook up a storm.
“The kari laksa comes with siew yuk (roast pork), watt kai (steamed chicken) and fresh cockles.”
I decided to give Lee’s recommendation a try and headed straight to Choy Kee (GPS N 03 g03.930, E 101 34.599).
For landmark recognition, this coffee shop is behind the Lik Hung Chinese school.
Okay, having heard sifu Lee?s description of the noodles, I decided to order a large bowl (RM6.50) with everything thrown in.
The taste was excellent with the exception that the gravy was too oily for my liking.
I found the portion to be quite generous and the siew yuk that comes with the kari laksa tasted great. Now, there aren’t many places that serve good kari laksa with roast pork.
And on the Samo-scale, I would give Choy Kee’s noodle dish a five-and-a-half out of 10.
Sifu Lee and Franky also mentioned another kari laksa stall at Sunway Giza, which I will try out when I have the time.
