Large Prawn Noodles at Kedai Makan Sow Mui

It was quite a surprise for me that when my brother told us that we can get large portion of prawn noodle one of the day during our visit to Kuala Lumpur when we were still deciding where to go for breakfast. And so, we decided to give the prawn noodle a try.

This prawn noodle stall is at Kedai Makan Sow Mui which is located in the village somewhere at Kuala Ampang; about 5-10 minutes drive from our condo. You can use Waze to find the location as it is in foursquare as well. It is hard to get parking here, so once you reach the village, it is best to quickly get a parking almost anywhere you can get. Don't expect to park right in front of the shop because I'm pretty sure it will be full. The place is still crowded when we reached there although it was past breakfast hour - my brother and I wake up late as we stay up late to watch football the night before that.

According to my brother, the fish porridge is also the specialty of the coffee shop

Spaghetti Aglio Olio at Ben and Lynette Maison Patisserie

If you want to taste the original traditional Italian pasta dish, ordering the spaghetti aglio olio is better choice than the normal spaghetti because the normal spaghetti usually get the taste from the sauce where as the aglio olio will give you the taste of the traditional spices.

During our last visit to Ben and Lynette Maison Patisserie, we also ordered a set of spaghetti aglio olio. Overall, I like the taste of the spaghetti aglio olio; in fact I would definitely order the same dish again, should I have another stop at Ben and Lynette Maison Patisserie.

The spaghetti is thin enough with nice texture and the way the noodle is lightly oiled makes the thin noodle smooth and you can just slurp the noodle. Because it is the aglio olio, the spaghetti is not served using tomato sauce; but rather olive oil with some spices which brings out the taste of the spaghetti.

However, I would have say that the portion served is rather small, so for those who are heavy on food, one portion might not be enough, but then again it might be a good idea so that one can order multiple of different dishes at the B & L, tasting different kind of food while enjoying the vintage environment of the place.
