Sri Nibong Cafe

Sri Nibong Cafe (理旺茶园) is a small hawker center at the entrance to Taman Sri Nibong. There are roughly a dozen food stalls here. The eatery is very popular among locals; it is difficult to find a vacant table after 8:00am.
The most popular hawker stall here is probably Sungai Nibong Koay Teow Th'ng (天桥下粿条汤). It is open from 6:30am to 3:00pm. The stall receives uninterrupted orders during breakfast and lunch hours. Fortunately, the noodles are cooked rather quickly. In the evening, the proprietor operates in another shop in Bayan Baru.
The soup for Koay Teow Th'ng (粿条汤, RM5.30) is very tasty as it is infused with rich flavors of pork. In addition, the minced pork is heavenly indeed. Meanwhile, the fish balls here are made from whitefin wolf herring (西刀鱼). Also included are fishcakes and egg. I cannot recommend this dish highly enough.
Pancake (曼煎糕) is also known as "apam balik" in Malay. It is made from flour dough that is cooked in a round griddle. The crêpe is topped with a variety of ingredients, and then folded over once the dough is cooked.
There are several choices of ingredients. I opted for opted for Peanut (花生, RM1.20) and Brown Sugar (黑糖, RM1.30), which are more common ingredients. More exotic choices are Peanut Butter (花生酱, RM2.20) and Cheese (芝士, RM2.70). I think the shell is thicker than it should be. It feels a bit doughy; I prefer it to be crispy.
My caffeine fix comes from a hot cup of Kopi Susu (RM1.40). The black coffee has a layer of condensed milk at the bottom. Good cup of coffee is my way to start off the day on the right foot.
