You have to make prior appointment to enter this distorted world and walk-ins are strictly not welcomed. The vibe here is just so contagious and drinks so unique that it transports you into an entire new universe upon stepping into the world of ShaungXi.

Located beneath an apartment block, 7th Mile Kitchen's nondescript storefront sets it up to be a real hidden gem discovery, if only their excellent East Malaysian eats would stop making constant foodie news. Open only from 7am to 2:30pm, the kitchen doles out a succinct Sarawakian menu made up of only four items. That's all they need. As it is, the lunch crowd snaps up every seat in their two-shoplot space, which is why we recommend swinging by for a more enjoyable experience of breakfast noodles instead. We can never decide between the Kolo Mee (from RM5.50) and the Sarawak Laksa (from RM6). While the former is a meaty treat tossed in minced pork and lard, the laksa broth surprises with a glorious hit of sweet, spice and zest every time — come with a friend and share both. True blue Sarawakian owner-chef Alex will also advise a serving of Kiaw (RM5), a delicate side of slippery wantons served sans soup. After several visits (and your fill of their top dishes) comes high time to attempt the lesser known (but also delicious) Tomato Noodles (RM5), kueh teow doused in a thick red concoction of wholesome tomato gravy.

Really enjoyed this Kolo Mee, more simple than anything. Minced pork, char siew and a touch of greasy lard come together to elevate the stringy, Sarawak noodles to its height.

It’s easy to quickly slurp this all up, so it really doesn’t feel like filling meal. Alex, the owner-chef, recommends having it for first thing in the morning for breakfast like the Sarawakians do.

The Rojak didn't disappoint too, generous spread of peanut sauce and we added sambal sotong for a good dose of kick.

Did I mention how cheap the meal was! Definitely suited for the current scorching weather in KL ☄️ Cendol RM1.40
Rojak mee sotong RM5.50


This new under-the-radar restaurant is powered by two good friends, devoted to bringing Penang's Hokkien mee buzz here to KL. Housed in an air-conditioned shoplot with easy four-seaters, perfect for lunch with a few colleagues, Prawn Mee King is a notch up from your usual neighbourhood haunt. Choose to have your bowl laden with Pork Ribs (RM14.90), Pork Belly (RM14.90) or even Mantis Prawns (RM18.90), which will add an extra bite to the robust meal. If you're in the mood to splurge, the Four Heavenly Kings is a whopping meal featuring all of the above plus large prawns at RM48. Prawn mee purists, fret not — you can also have the Original Prawn Mee (RM6.90) done to tradition's way. The secret is in their full-bodied broth, bolstered by a strong whiff of prawns and chilli. The owners credit this inimitable flavour to the long, painstaking cooking process, taking after a 37-year-old recipe from Penang. Also order the homeboiled Luo Han Guo (RM3.50), meant to be more bitter than sweet to help offset the heaty effects of the meal.

In order to feel, one must experience. In order to experience, one must do something wholeheartedly. Be a player, not a spectator. Go do something now!

Best prawn noodles I’ve had since Penang’s GreenHouse experience. The broth is stocky, spicy AND you get to add yummy add-ons like ribs, roast pork or mantis prawns. I got the latter and enjoyed it thoroughly, but I will recommend the ribs or roast pork over it. The meat gives a good contrast since the entire bowl already supplies enough briny flavour.
