Gone are the days when food stalls were stationed under huge rain or cherry trees (except for dai shu keok) and along back lanes of shops. We now have modern covered food courts like Golden Point (GP) that opened in late 2009 and operates from 6am to midnight everyday. On the upper level is Frank Fitness Centre; it is apt that after a good workout one can come down and have a scrumptious meal.
There is a multitude of Chinese fare like: Penang Fried Kuey Teow, Singapore Fried Noodles, Hock Kee Bak Kut Teh, Western food, Fish Head Noodles, Curry Fish Head, (Pik Lan) Seafood Fried Rice, Claypot Chicken Rice, Pan Mee, Prawn Mee, Chee Cheong Fun, Sizzling Lo Shi Fun or Yee Mee from Sweet Heart and of course, the signature Pau Langkap. Try the ‘lemak’ Curry Mee – RM4.20 and delicious Rojak – RM4, all from the same stall, the al dente Heng Kee Wonton Mee Bercham – RM4. ‘Something Special’ has homemade noodles either with plain sauce or curry (for a change try the wild boar curry) – RM4-4.50. Suntei Sushi has a wide variety of sushi.
Mee Goreng, Mee Rebus, Roti Canai, etc. will satisfy those craving Indian food. Su Nasi Kandar serves spicy and flavourful rice and curry dishes from RM4.80 for rice, chicken curry, vegetables & poppadom; fish cutlets are RM1.50 and there is also chicken varuval (dry), mutton and different vegetables.
Some stalls open at night from 7pm onwards include Pinang Lobak, Satay, BBQ Fish, Popiah, etc. Pizza buffs can have thin-crust Chicken Supreme Pizza at Elro’s Deli Pizza Australiana; RM13.80 for regular and RM19.80 for large.
There is also a good selection of fruit juices and desserts available and a must-try is Wan Tou Long (yellow jelly) – RM2.30. The Fresh Fruit stall sells sengkuang, mango, guava, etc. from RM1 to RM2.
GP First Garden has not less than 35 food stalls and has something for everyone.
