New Water Garden

This article is part of my 2016 Langkawi trip.

New Water Garden Hawker Centre Langkawi (新水乡小贩中心) is breakfast place in downtown Kuah. There are around 10 stalls in total. Most customers are locals, which is a good sign for me.
The bowl of Kuey Teow Soup (粿条汤, RM5.50) contains several fish balls that are made from wolf-herring (西刀鱼). I think there is too much flour; I prefer more fish. I also feel that the soup is saltier than necessary and lacks savoriness from meat or fish. The good news is that a lot of choy sum (菜心) is used.
The plate of Char Kuey Teow (炒粿条, RM6.00) is on the spicier end of my tolerable range. I think it is prudent to tone down the amount of chili paste, or at least check with customers first. There is also a general lack of "fiery aroma" (镬气) that I would like to see in this dish.
Kopi (RM1.30) is my caffeine fix before another lengthy sightseeing trip. Basically, the coffee is prepared from locally-roasted beans and sweetened condensed milk.
At night, New Water Garden operates as a seafood restaurant called Rootian Seafood Restaurant (露天海鲜饭店). I wonder how it compares with Wonderland Food Store?
