After visiting Wat Chayamangkalaram, I realised it was time for lunch. Despite the sky threatening to rain at any time, I walked towards Jalan Burmah hoping to find the famous Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng.

On the way, I passed by the Pulau Tikus Police Station.

And the Sin Hwa Coffee Shop which is famous for their Penang char koay teow.

Soon, I reached this building which on one side faces Jalan Burmah and the other faces Bangkok Lane.

It's Seng Lee Coffee Shop.

In this coffee shop is the famous Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng, so called because the mee goreng stall faces Bangkok Lane.

To readers who are not familiar with mee goreng, it is actually fried noodles. In this case, it is Indian fried noodles. You can order your mee goreng plain or with squids and eggs. You can even mix the mee goreng with mee rebus if you like.

How did I find it? Well, it was a bit too soggy to me. Other than that, it was pretty fine. I have to say though, that I am not a huge fan of mee goreng as I feel it is oily and not very healthy. Haha! I guess eating it once in a while is OK.

Interestingly, the Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng stall has been around for more than 80 years. That's a very long time!

If you plan to try this mee goreng, do take note that the stall operates everyday from 8am to 6pm except on Mondays.
