Noodle Station

Semasa kami meronggeng kali kedua di Poney Fair itu, kami had lunch at Noodle Station. Sebenarnya, banyak kali dah kami usha Noodle Station ni, sebab kat Alamanda pun ada satu outlet, tapi tak pernah jenguk sebab we thought it would be some average kedai yang jual mee je. So sebab Mummy teringin nak makan laksa asam, when we saw Noodle Station at SACC Mall, kami pun decide la nak try.

We were pleasantly suprised bila kita tengok menu dia - sebab extensive jugak la, not just mee goreng, mee sup, mee kari - mcm Laksa Shack atau Lemongrass Cafe. Noodle Station has a lot of noodle varieties to choose from - sampai tak reti nak bezakan dari satu item ke satu item yang lain. Everything looks, and reads good. Finally, Mummy chose the Springy Noodle in Tomyam Seafood, Wen chose the Springy Noodle with Crabstick and Fishball, while Daddy (tak ikut konsep) pilih Tomyam Fried Rice with Prawns.

Lagi satu, menu beverage dia pun very extensive, memang banyak choice. From smoothies, ice-blended, coffee, tea, shakes, fruit cocktails, fresh juices and to the ordinary drinks, memang kalah menu kedai mamak. Daddy ordered Iced Teh Tarik Hazelnut, Mummy drank I Love You Lemonade (Curacao with Lemonade), Wen minum Pink Guava Lemonade and the kids shared Strawberry Milkshake. Semua air ni sedap and refreshing.

The meals pula - springy noodles dia sedap dan cara masaknya kena dengan taste buds kami, rencahnya cukup - tak pedas sangat, tak masin, tak masam. Nasi goreng Daddy pun okay cuma kurang isi dan prawns. We do recommend this outlet for some fast, healthy and tasty noodle selection. Do take time to examine their extensive noodle and beverage menu - pilih mee dan air yang sesuai supaya berbaloi dengan selera anda!

Old Timer Kopi

There is one simple-looking kopitiam in Seksyen 9 Bandar Baru Bangi, called the Old Timer. We think it is named that because it plays classic Malay songs, which is very refreshing. Old Timer might lack one significant signature dish, but it is the quality in their dishes which stands out. From their Kuey Teow Soup, Mee Kari, Soto Nasi Impit, Pulut Rendang and Nasi Lemak, everything is simple yet tasty and delicious.
Besides that, the owner, though we do not know them personally, is a very friendly and attentive lady.

We will not recommend a particular menu for you to try out. But if you want an alternative to a franchised kopitiam (yeah, like Old Town - boring or Bangi Kopitiam - dwindling standard), head to the Old Timer, relax, listen to the Keronchong, and indulge yourself.
