Do you know that there are many famous and popular food stalls in Taynton View, Cheras
? Do not underestimate this place, I tell you! I shall show it to you! Jom! Let’s go for another “Gila Makan” (crazy eating) trip!
1) LAI FOONG BEEF NOODLE SHOP (CHERAS)
An artist impression on the back of their menu
of the original Lai Foong Beef Noodle
We went to its branch
8, Jalan Nadchatiram, Taman Taynton,
Off Jalan Cheras, 56000 Kuala Lumpur.

Look at the menu!
I thought I snap the whole menu!
I missed the end bit of it where you can find the most expensive part
(the lowest and most private part of a cow)!
Anyway, just stick on to their beef noodle, okay?
Anything else served there is not recommended!
I ordered up to RM8 from the menu’s listing down items!
Clear soup and everything nice except the soup was not hot when served!
Look at the bubbles or foam on the surface of the soup!
Another disappointment was the chilli sauce
~ not thick and spicy hot as it used to be
or should I say that it did not taste like the original!
I still prefer to go to downtown, to their original shop, for the original taste!
FYI, this place is fully air conditioned.
See that smiling face on the Metro page?
That guy may be serving you or taking your orders!
2) RESTORAN LIM KEE PAN MEE
Restoran Lim Kee Pan Mee
53, Jalan Dato Haji Harun
Taynton View, Cheras
56000 Kuala Lumpur
Normal coffee shop environment and the menu is on the wall!
TV personality, Chui Ling, took some pictures with the staff and
they were plastered on the wall too!
Their dry noodle came with a bowl of “kow kee” (vegy) soup.
I had pan mee (flat noodle) soup.
The flat noodle’s dough was perfect; smooth, chewy and without a bite of flour!
Their chilli sauce was spicy hot!
I loved it! Another plate, please! Erm, one more plate!
I had three plates of chilli sauce complimenting my bowl of pan noodle!
Even their “sui kau” was tasty!
Overall, no regret!
Dear buddy said they used to sell in a small space opposite their existing shop
but their business was so good that they had to find a shop on their own!
And this was it!
3) KEDAI MAKANAN JIN MAN
Kedai Makanan Jin Man
71, Jalan Dato Haji Harun
Taman Taynton View, Cheras
56000 Kuala Lumpur
You would have no idea what this shop sells if you look at the English signboard.
Only the Chinese words say that they sell “Sentul” (ikan parang or wolf herring) Fishball Noodles!
This shop has two units linked as one.
Both gate painted in yellow ~ you cannot miss it one!
When I asked for the menu,
because I could not see one on the wall
since I was sitting at the walkway facing the stove,
I was told that they have none.
“Our menu is very simple.
We only have fish balls, fish cake and fish maw.
Noodles, we have mee, meehoon, kuay teow, loh see fun or tung fun.
Choice of dry or soup.
What do you like?”
Gee, I like the old man taking the order! Very polite and informative indeed!
One bowl of dry meehoon mee, one bowl of soup meehoon; both with fishball and fish maw.
One more plate of fish cake!
We ordered everything they sell with our choice of noodles!
I must say this shop serves the best food among all the 3 shops!
Their fish cake was deep fried and really yummy!
“Tan argh” (Bounce teeth) in texture!
So were their fish balls.
Since I am a fish maw lover, so no complaints there at all!
They also have branches at
Kota Kemuning, Seri Kembangan and Bandar Mahkota Cheras.
Call them for directions, okay?
