Jalan Burmah – Bee Hooi cafe Char Koay Teow

Bee Hooi coffeeshop is located along Jalan Burmah, next to EON bank. It is right across Bellisa Row. Sometimes we go there for dinner when we really do not know where to eat. The coffeeshop has lots of hawker stalls but not every stall serves good food. In my opinion, the foods are all so-so only but not bad lah.

I was in Island Plaza and suddenly has a craving for char koay teow. Previously, there is a nice char koay teow stall at the Fatty Loh Chicken Rice’s place in Fettes Park. However, all the hawkers have moved and the place closed down.

The only other option for char koay teow in the area is in Pulau Tikus’s market but my children do not like eating there. So, we head to Bee Hooi cafe. The char koay teow’s stall does brisk business and you can see the smoke from far away.


I ordered extra prawns with duck’s egg and got this huge prawns. The char koay teow lacked the lard but it is ok lah….Per plate is RM7.


There is a Frankie Pizza but blek, the crust is like biscuit and the pizza sauce taste is so local.

At Kedai Kopi Bee Hooi, you can find rather decent chicken rice from the stall at the front. It is the ‘pek cham keh’ version. The loh bak is not too bad either. Poh piah stall seems to be very ‘laku’ as well but I have never tried them. There is also a pie tee stall. As for the other hawkers, their foods are so-so. Avoid the jawa mee, lam mee, koay teow th’ng and mee sua kor ‘cos the foods are nothing nice at all.

    Wow… I did not know Ah Kow had increased his CKT until so high. This is one of my favorite stall as early as my childhood days. I guessed his childrens’ education fees must have increased too 😛
