We are besotted and obsessed with Restoran 33’s noodles, our current fave hole-in-the-wall, Chinese coffee shop.
Smack in the middle of one of the busier blocks in Taman Bukit Anggerik, Cheras, Restoran 33 is a modest coffee shop that’s popular with local residents for its succulent Chinese dumplings (sui kao) and Pan Mee. Though the pace tapers off somewhat toward the later part of the afternoon, this place does a brisk business at lunch and on weekends. Restoran 33 is open from 6am to 2:30pm and we normally get there around 2pm for a late lunch, so the place is less busy.
There are many combinations of noodles and soups, and the photos are on displayed proudly on the wall, that doubles up as a blackboard. You can have spicy or not, with or without broth. You may choose your type of noodles, from spinach made noodles to the regular ones, there’s something for everybody. There’s even the option of dry wantan noodles with chicken feet and mushrooms or a soup version if you don’t like pan mee. There’s pork ball noodles, noodles with offal, fish balls /meat ball noodles, wood ear fungus pork noodles and finally chicken curry noodles too.
the big display – you can’t miss it
once you mix the spinach pan mee with the black sauce, you can’t make out the green noodles any longer
this nice man is the friendly owner who loves to chat with us
Milo Yoyo – a nice milo frappe that Cumi loves to drink
The shrimp and pork dumplings are big and succulent
it’s a lady cook at this noodle shop
I can never give up the temptation of spicy pan mee so.. this is my bowl. Hot and spicy.. I like!
Generally the noodles are springy and cooked al dente. You can taste the spinach in the green pan mee so that makes a change from other pan mee that are not made fresh. The sauces are good as well. You can check this place out, if you’re ever in Cheras.
Oh, and don’t forget the Milo Yoyo!Add:
