Heritage Photos of Taman Tasek Kway Teow Kia 果条仔 Stall

Guo Tiau Zi 果条仔 Tasek is one of most popular kway teow kia stalls in Johor Bahru. The stall started on a wheeled push cart more than 30 years ago in Taman Tasek. 

MR and MRS Lee, the gracious owners of Guo Tiau Zi 果条仔 Tasek generously shared these heritage photos of their popular stall with us. Get a glimpse of the passion and commitment behind that humble bowl of delicious kway teow kia from these old pictures.

We've only just began..... in 1984.

Wooden push cart stall on wheels and with only a sheet of flimsy, flapping canvas overhead to shield it from the elements. Notice that small red charcoal stove at the front of the push cart stall?

Taman Tasek kway teow kia Gen 2 in 1995, the stall now "upgraded" with steel panels, moved into a more sturdy structure with a zinc roof overhead. The stall had gleaming steel folding wing panels, like one of those "Transformer" robots.

Dining under a big tree and on a bald patch of raw earth. Look at the number of tables. Even at that time, Taman Tasek kway teow kia already had a big following of fans.

Some things never change - still serving customers with the same cheer and one of the best kway teow kia in Johor.

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)
