Lotus Rats Nuts Pancake Potatoes In Old Town

By the time the cock crowed three times this morning, we were already in old town having our stomachs filled.... We were very hungry... without waiting for the bell to ring, we were already sitting in the old coffeeshop, enjoying our first meal of the day.....

Old town is very quiet during the early morning...

along the way, there are authentic buildings in sight...

we have to walk through the lane before reaching our destination..

today's special soup is lotus, nuts and red dates soup..
RM4.50 per bowl with noodles ..

I ordered "rat noodles" immersed with in soup...
first time I am taking noodles with lotus...

Elin opted not for rats but mihun...
she was enjoying herself to the brim...

for desserts, we ordered groundnut pancake...
(apom balik - 70 cents per piece)

lastly but least, my meal is sealed with a big bowl
sweet potatoes in sweet syrup...
So.... after this heavyweight breakfast,
we skipped our lunch and went to zzzzzZZZZZZZZZ....


  1. The best way to end a lavish meal with the sweetest afters...

  2. hmmm, really a wholesome and heavy breakfast huh.. but i like all of them, the rat noodles, the peanuts and the potatoes.. :)

  13. Lotus root - good for heavy flow. LOL!!! I like when cooked terrayaki - not a fan of it in soup.
