This Chee Yok Fun Is Da Champ!


The last time I went up to A Foodie's Nest@The Starling, I tried Kom's By Kompassion which has since closed down. Business at this food court has picked up a bit since I last visited but I can't say that it is bustling.

I decided to come by again to try the Chee Yok Fun@Champ's (CLOSED) upon my sister-in-law's recommendation. She also works nearby and has given the oink-oink noodles the thumbs up.


I actually headed to Prawn Noodle King outside the mall but found that they were closed (on Mondays) and that prompted me to drop by Champ's.


There are four variations of the pork noodles and I opted for the Chee Yok Fun (Soup)@RM16.50. Yup that's quite a premium price to pay for a bowl of noodles.


But it was a big bowl filled to the brim with lots of goodies inside.


I chose koay teow and in the soup I found loads of minced pork, pork slices, intestines, liver, Chinese cabbage, mustard greens and big pieces of fried pork lard. 


The soup was very flavorful and I may have discovered the secret. I found two small pieces of fish bone in the broth.


Salted fish?


That was a very hearty lunch and I will definitely be back for more.

  4. I only know of Champs being very famous for their 'damn shiok' prawn mee. Don't know about the pork noodles though. They were the rage when they started about 15 years ago but later years saw complaints of drop in standard and too much MSG (their outlet in Centrepoint closed but the one in BSC is still operating).

    This one the broth is the cloudy type (may be too robustly-flavoured for me, I prefer clear soup base). I wouldn't be surprised it there's salted fish in the stock since it's so flavourful. Do they sell prawn mee here as well?

    1. The broth was very robust in flavor, so could be a bit too strong for you as you prefer more subtle taste. If I remember correctly, I did see prawn mee on the menu. That's something I'd like to try too.

  8. What a good timing to drop by to salivate at this post! I have been thinking what I should have for dinner since wifey has late night meetings. The Champs have been around for 2 decades with outlets at Centrepoint and Bangsar Shopping Centre. They have many other delicious food too!

    This oink oink is yummy and calling me!

  12. The pork noodles at their main outlet at Centre Point is charged at a more premium price tag, have you tried before?
    When you mentioned about fish bones in your soup, I thought they were those tiny bones which can hurt one's throat is accidentally swallow it. But bones found in broth/soup is a no no, right? =.="
