One of our fave places for weekday brunch and marketing will be Imbi Market. Technically the place is named Pasar Baru Bukit Bintang but because its really more Imbi than Bukit Bintang, its popularly known as Imbi Market. Closed on Mondays, I normally make this a 2 in 1 visit. I get my marketing done and I get to fill my tummy with some simple and definitely very yummy hawker fare.
Parking is convenient. Park by the roadside (at the legal bays unless you fancy a traffic summon) or pay for parking at the designated empty land. The market can get a bit warm after 11am but it is well ventilated.
And more noms...there are quite a bit to choose from and even has a halal stall that whips out very yummy Malay fare like nasi lemak and meehoon goreng with a potent dose of sambal. If you fancy vegetarian, well this is the place visit too.
The faves are as follows...and I will be posting up another post in the chee cheong fun, porridge and pan mee that I don't seem to be able to find the pics...
Drinks from Ah Weng Koh are a must. Love the coffee and tea. The waiters are friendly even if some sound quite fierce when they take and repeat your orders to the kitchen. None peak hours, its really nice to chat about the latest handphones and their travels.
Toasted bread with kaya (coconut jam) and butter.
Soft boiled eggs to go with your bread. They serve it to you in an aluminium cup and you keep an eye on your watch. For perfectly runny soft boiled eggs, its approximately 8 minutes.
A must for us every visit is the Sisters Crispy Popiah. Self service so make your order and bring your plate to your own table.
RM2.20 per piece but its definitely worth the price.
A nice bite to every slice of popiah.
Right behind the popiah stall serves an old school of what i call 'chicken noodles' (kai meen). Basically its noodles served with steamed chicken. The sauce may look simple but it has a nice balance of ginger and garlic to go with the smooth steamed chicken. This same stall also serves food curry laksa.
Pork ball noodles are not the best in town but its a decent dish with what I call the 'magic chili'.
The 'magic chili' is a very addictive mix of cili padi with a blend of pickled chilies.
Wantan mee by an Indian bloke who has the best customer service ever. While the noodles isn;t the springy kind that I like but its a generous portion of ingredients with every plate. The hubster's fave is the dry curry wantan mee.
I fancy the chicken feet with mushroom version with some curry gravy for that slightly spicy kick.
Not your regular plate of char kueh teow. Looks unappetizing but its a darn good plate that is wet rather than oily with a generous serving of plump cockles. The spiciness is a secret recipe of pepper and chili which explains the brown colour even when its an extra spicy version.
Comforting Bunn Choon egg tarts for a sweet end to our meals:D
A must visit for folks working around the golden triangle. Closed on Mondays, this place can get especially packed during the weekends and public holidays.
