    Kedai Kopi Memang

    Tucked in the middle of Menggatal Plaza, Kedai Kopi Memang has proven its eligibility to be the crowd’s favourite hot spot owing to the fact that the place is always filled with people.

Its red-looking broth seems to send of a rather pleasing taste, and devilishly lure its first-timer for a second trip. 

    Tips

    Menggatal Plaza is the place for some morning meals, so do head down there early

    Things to expect

    Packed after 6pm other than that, perfect time for the lots to come.

    Wisma Merdeka happens to house a really decent prawn mee stall that is famous among the crowds manned by Ah Lim Penang Mee Udang. A little off than the typical thickened prawn broth that is loved by many, as a matter of fact this stall prefers a much clear soup to make a much obvious noodles and prawns to its eater and not to mention the generosity of Ah Lim in providing a wealthy set of bowls packed with noodles.
