Any one who works in FTZ area will know Batu Maung area, especially near the primary school, there are many shops offering lunch.

From Hilir Sg Kluang Satu, turn to Lintang Bayan Lepas 3, go all the way straight until almost reach Pentamaster on your left, turn right into Lintang Bayan Lepas 6. Go straight until T-junction. Turn left and follow the road (you will cross very small bridge) till you meet another T-junction in front of you (Jalan Baru Batu Maung). Turn left and drive straight until you see a primary school on your left. The stall is beside the road of Tingkat Batu Maung. The location is exactly same with my previous post on Batu Maung Char Kuey Teow.

Auntie still camera shy...

Another 20 years veteran of cooking Hokkien mee. My personal preference is more on prawn fragrant. I almost will visit this stall within a week or two weeks. Kinda addicted :-) I know I will control the possible high cholesterol. Thanks for your inner mumbling and kind intention :-)

Maggi noodles option, but I still prefer the yellow noodles taste better :-)

In fact, few months ago, I informed auntie (the stall owner) - I will bring camera to hunt photos. I think she thought - this fellow must be kidding. Ended up I brought another two "kaki" to enjoy the hunting moment - Rob & PJ. Three of "tam-chiak" fellas brought out our arsenal to capture like mad on food porn :-P

Addictive or mad?

For the soup base, you can check out the differences in between prawn fragrant and meat fragrant. I personally prefer more prawn fragrant because when they cook the soup base, they won't throw everything into the soup to cook, even after the soup base already cooked, they don't put the extra material into the soup to enhance the sweetness.

Who is this? Intruder!!!

You can also learn up to observe and taste the differences. If meat fragrant, check out the possible extra order like meat ball, "fan-cheong" and etc will cook as well. I managed to get this insider information because I have one sifu explained the tricks on cooking :-) Share the trick here? No way :-P I prefer face-to-face sharing :-)

Oh not wrong channel to post this picture - you can get it from the kopitiam taukeh. Nasi lemak also tempting over there :-P
