My husband and I went for curry mee on a Monday, late morning. It was jam packed. We had to wait awhile, but we enjoyed sitting and watching all of the action. The curry mee was delicous and well worth the wait!

Come and get a bowl of thick curry soupy noodles with variety of toppings at Chuen Fong. The dry version is as good, but, depends on one's preference. Top this up with a nice cup of local brew coffee or tea. A good start of the day with breakfast there. One may need to park behind the shop in case... More
