Dapur Asiah: cheap and good?

Search the net, and you will find a few raves on this stall. From Makansutra Forum, to I decided to drop by Shunfu Mart to have a taste.

When I arrived about 9am on a Sunday morning, there was a rather long queue. Must be good...or because its cheap. $2 a plate for mee siam or mee rebus.

I ordered one of each. The mee rebus

Not a bad tasting dish. The gravy was thick, savoury, but with a hint of sweetness...probably from the kichap manis. Spicy without being overpowering, even with the chilli sambal mixed in. The green chillies provided a crunchy freshness. The noodles were cooked nicely. Not the best mee rebus I have eaten, but certainly not the worst...far from it, perhaps above average even.

The mee siam:

The gravy was nice and made from solid stock...a nice blend of sourness and saltiness with the spicyness of the sambal. The bee hoon was nicely done, and the taugeh was almost raw, but provided a nice crunch. Bits of crunchy beans were floating in the soup, making it quite delicious.

I also tried some of the Malay kuihs...not bad too...for 50 cents each:

Considering the very reasonable price, and generous portions, it is no wonder why the stall attracts a perpetual queue. Worth going for the budget concious.
