Breakfast in Petaling Street : Kuala Lumpur’s ChinaTown

Hotel Food can be boring sometimes so after checking my emails and a quick shower, I headed to Chinatown to find a good breakfast place. Since its too early when I arrived and most places are still closed, I decided to walk around Petaling Street and look for something interesting. I discovered an alley that’s being converted to a flea market every Sunday and spend almost an hour for a good shopping finds.

At the end of the alley, a found a hawker place that sells noodles and chicken rice. It looks like everyone is ordering Wan Tan Mee so I decided to get one as well.

Wan Tan Mee is a popular noodle dish in Malaysia that is served with slices of char siu (Pork Asado), leafy vegetables, wan tans, and mushrooms. The noodle is very much similar to Pancit Lucban but its thinner and the Malaysians are cooking it differently.

After the meal I started to walk around and found another interesting stall that sells Chinese Burger. Out of curiosity, I sat down and ordered a single serving just to taste and find out what makes these burger “Chinese”.

After tasting the burger, I found out that instead of using a beef or pork burger patty, they used a gold coin meet with chicken floss with tomato and cucumber. The taste cant be compared to the American burger that we are used to eating but its really worth trying.
