Restoran Tian Fatt @ Kepong, Selangor

We were visiting FRIM (Forest Research Institute of Malaysia) this morning. As we had to be there fairly early in the morning, by mid morning we were already feeling quite hungry. I was looking for a Nasi Lemak place inside FRIM which I had previously visited but was told that the previous operator, who used to serve some excellent Nasi Lemak, had moved out. Having learned that, we drove out of FRIM and just at the very exit, we noticed this Chinese Food Court called Restoran Tian Fatt which was attached to a Chinese Temple located exactly at 2 o Clock when standing at the entrance to FRIM, facing outwards. 

At The Food Court

Huge Parking Space Available

Pretty Busy Morning

It is difficult to miss this place as the Chinese Temple is quite prominent. The rest of the area looks like a Chinese Village. This locality is called Kepong Ulu. From afar, we could clearly see that there are quite a number of stalls selling various food items. We drove up a short distance which was merely 50 meters and we were already at their car park. They had a huge parking area. Very close to the parking lot, the Kepong Ulu school is also visible. These are all landmarks which one could use to locate this food court.

Various Stalls

Various Stalls
The food court was not too huge but sufficient for this locality. The spread was good too and the place was decently clean. These stalls operate daily from 5.30 am up to 2.30 pm . Some stalls start later at around 10.00 am and are usually sold out by approximately 2.00 pm. Hence, it is best to come here before 1.30 pm if you are coming here for lunch. Fortunately we were here around 10.30 am and all the stalls were already open by then. The last one that was in the midst of setting up was the Chicken Rice stall, and they too were ready for business before 11.00 am .

Barley @ RM 1.30

Local Coffee @ RM 1.40
We ordered the drinks with the waiters and within minutes they were served. The drinks were pretty nice and the local coffee was very good. I would rate their coffee at 9/10 . We then took a walk individually to check out the stalls and then placed our orders at the respective stalls. 

Curry Mee Stall

Checking Out What They Have

Curry Mee @ RM 5.00

Curry Mee @ RM 5.00
The first dish that we ordered was Curry Mee. This came in a huge bowl and had some Tofu, sliced Boiled Eggs, Clams, Wantons, Long Beans, Chili Paste, Yellow Noodles and a thick creamy curry. The Curry was really tasty but may ward off those health conscious people as the curry came with loads of coconut milk which was clearly visible. Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed this. If you are looking for a delicious bowl of Curry Mee, then this would definitely be a good choice. I would rate this at 9/10 .

Char Kuey Teow Stall

The 'Aunty' Busy Preparing

Char Kuey Teow @ RM 4.80

Char Kuey Teow @ RM 4.80
The Char Kuey Teow stall is located on the far left. A young lady was manning this stall. Priced at RM 4.80, the Char Kuey Teow was really good, not the best that I have tried, but still good! The 'Wok Hei' was intact and it was extremely delicious. I would rate this at 8.9/10 . Worth giving it a try! 

Prawn Mee @ RM 5.00

We also tried their Prawn Mee and that too, was quite impressive. Not as good as the one in Taman Kok Lian in KL, yet this was almost there. Very impressive! Another dish that I would recommend here.

The food here was reasonably good and both of us had a sumptuous breakfast so much so we decided to skip lunch. If you happen to come to this side of the world, then do make it a point to have breakfast here. One that you would not regret.

Address: No. 88, Jalan FRI, Kepong Ulu, Kepong, 52100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Opening Hours: 0530 - 1430 ( After 4 pm, it is another set of stalls operating here)
