Meng Fang kway teow kia 茗芳粿條仔 (JB's version of kway chap) is one of many hawker stalls in popular Cedar Point hawker centre along Jalan Musang Bulan quietly tucked at the back of Hotel Grand Paragon in Johor Bahru.

The humble looking stall may not stand out among the other stalls in Cedar Point but it has a regular clientele based on word of mouth.

See where the students from a nearby school are drawn to during recess time? Judging from the cheerful, familial banter between the students and the stall holder, they are obviously very close.

I ordered a mix of pork and innards along with a bowl of kway teow kia. The bill came to a grand RM5 for the whole set.

The pork and innards were delicious - relying just on the meat's natural sweetness and flavours with very little saltiness unlike those kway chap stalls that use salt liberally to boost the taste and mask the smell of the innards. The innards at Meng Fang are fresh and very well cleaned.

Meng Fang's pig skin is done just right. Springy yet tender. Not too soft nor too stiff. Sliced expertly with no excess fats clinging onto the skin.

The large and small intestines are sweet, tender and chewy.

Every strip of pork was cut just right. Each piece has three layers - lean meat, fat and skin. Pork tastes best when eaten 3-in-1 together like this.

I am so glad to have the opportunity to experience such a gem of a stall and highly recommend Meng Fang 茗芳粿條仔 to kway teow kia and kway chap fans.

->> Love coming here for KTK in the morning. Parking is easy, the place is comfortable and the food is delicious :-D

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is the same as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
