Kedai Makanan & Minuman Cheong Fatt @ Hulu Bernam, Selangor

Kedai Makanan & Minuman Cheong Fatt is another very old coffee shop in Tanjung Malim that has been around for more than 30 years. We have been going here for decades now and coincidentally, the owners son was my classmate in school. They are located along Jalan Changkat Asa, just 500 meters away from the first turning from Jalan Ulu Bernam and they would be on the left. This is the very first proper row of shops and they occupy the very end corner unit.

Interior of the Restaurant
This restaurant is fairly simple in design and caters mainly for breakfast to lunch. They close relatively fast and hence if you do not want to miss out, it's best to be there around 12.30 latest. They mainly specialise in their Curry Mee which I find is really good.

Here it is more like a very friendly environment where we even walk into their work space and select the type of noodles that we want along with the Yong Tau Foo items that we want to be included into our dish. They have a range of noodle types, Pan Mee, Mee Hoon, Yellow Mee, Wan Tan Mee and Kueh Teow to go with the curry.

Yong Tau Foo items in Curry @ RM 2.00
Well, the way the food is served here is fairly unique. The Noodles and the Yong Tau Foo items comes in two separate bowls. What makes the curry here really good is the non usage of coconut milk. If you look at their curry closely, it is slightly yellow but somewhat clear and that is contributed by the fact that it is without any coconut milk and this makes it a healthier option. Even with this preparation, the quality and taste of the curry is not compromised in any way. Their curry is still delicious and I would rate their Curry Mee at 8.8/10 . I still find this much better compared to the famous one in Jalan Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur. At the price of RM 2.50, it is also fairly cheap and makes this place a favourite among the locals. If you happen to be in this part of the world, this coffee shop is definitely a must try. 

Address: Jalan Changkat Asa, 35900 Hulu Bernam, Selangor, Malaysia.
