This is probably my favourite restaurant/cafe selling Malaysian-style noodles. The place reminds me of a Chinese Malaysian coffee shop, unpretentious, plain and simple. The price is also coffee shop prices, i.e.very cheap when compared with other restaurants and cafes in town. The quality of the food is average to good, depending on the item. My favourite is the mee rebus (as far as I know this is about one of the few places in Vancouver where you can find this dish). The gado-gado and the flour fritters are also good. Besides the usual char keow teoy, mee goreng, curry laksa, etc. there are also rice dishes such as curry rice, chicken rice, fried rice.

To all Malaysians/Singaporeans visiting, after you are in Vancouver for a while and are craving for some familiar food, this place is well worth a visit. Just take the Skytrain to Main Street, change to No. 3 Main-Marine Station bus and get off at the King Edward Ave stop.

This place is small, but the food and prices can't be beat.

This hole in the wall serves up some hawker style food reminiscent of the food from Singapore and Malaysia. The selections are simple with favorites like Char Kuey Teow, Mee Goreng, and Chicken Rice but things like Mee Rebus and Mee Siam are decidedly Singaporean dishes which many people would enjoy.

I had the chicken rice and it wasn't bad but the chicken were bonesless, much to my disappointment. The prices for most items are about $5-6 so you can't beat that for a quick lunch or dinner. I would definitely come back to try the rest.

There are two Malaysian restaurants I like in Vancouver, and this is the one I go to when I want to feel like I'm eating at a hawker's centre in Penang or Singapore (without the heat and humidity). There's not much atmosphere. Order at the window to the kitchen and pay (cash only). Prices are cheap. The menu is posted on the wall and has pictures if you don't know what the names mean. You can tell them how spicy (or not) you want it. Lots of choice for vegetarians here. You can serve yourself water or tea. Then sit at a table and the server finds you. The food is tasty and filling. It tends to get crowded so it helps to arrive a bit before standard meal times. Closed on Sundays.

Cheap and cheerful, with delicous food and seriously good prices. If you are in Vancouver and like Malaysian food I recommend this place for lunch.
