Was trying to type out those names in full but decided they were too long, hence used the acronyms. Now that I looked at them, these acronyms kinda widely used by us, no? CCF - chee cheung fun (flat rice noodles); YTF - yong tau foo (tofu/vegetables stuffed with fish paste); and ABC - air batu campur (shaved ice concoction).
We went to Chinatown recently to grab some stuff on a Saturday and decided to drop by Madras Lane, behind Pak Peng Building, to have a bite. Since my boiboi was with us, we ordered his favourite CCF and some YTF to go with them. As usual he went on his "don't wanna eat" mode and showed his puppy eyes protest but the moment the CCF arrived, he was tucking them in. Asked for fishball and helped himself to deep fried foo chuk (soy bean sheet) too! Now, that's my boy!
I can't recall the stall number of the CCF cos there were 2 there. Hubby ordered from the busy stall as he usually prefer to go by the flow. Later he noticed why the other stall wasn't so busy... cos their CCF costed a bit more, if not mistaken 20 sens more per plate. I like my CCF to be soaked in bean paste sauce, chilli sauce AND pickled green chillies (not shown on pic cos I added later)! Each piece of YTF is 80 sens which is freshly cooked and disappeared fast from the trays! The workers have to prepare, stuff and cook them non-stop as the demand is forever high.
We have ABC and cendol (pictured) later to cool down as it can get hot and stuffy at the hawker centre. Nothing to shout about these two but at least the cendol is not the frozen type.
Just a reminder, before you order, do ask the stalls where you can sit to eat their food. The hawkers are very territorial here! Other than CCF, YTF and ABC, my makan kakis like to come here for assam laksa and curry laksa too! Hmmm yumyum... thinking about the thick curry with loads of cockles now!
To access here without walking thru the market, walk thru Pak Peng Building, Jalan Petaling or via the lane opposite the Sri Mahamariamman Indian Temple, Jalan Tun HS Lee.
