Sandwiched between a multi-storey carpark and a FairPrice supermarket, Pot Shop Boys–pun on the band, Pet Shop Boys–sells only one dish, a street food from Kuala Lumpur. Mee tai mak or lo shu fun (loosely translated as mouse just wanna have fun) is cooked in a claypot with soy sauce, lots of lard, pork liver, minced pork, pork balls, and some prawns. $4 (small) or $4.50 (big). So KL-ish that this Pot Shop Boy is konfirmed not a New York City Boy.
It came boiling hot and the awesomeness exploded in the mouth. It was so delicious and lardy (but not greasy) that Huccalily asked, “Is this legal in Singapore? I want another bowl before it gets banned!” It was so good It’s A Sin.
Nothing Flamboyant about the kopitiam. Go east to Lavender where Pot Shop Boys is and don’t Go West, West End Girls. Food so good it will be Always On My Mind and Heart. In other words, sibei ho chiak. Must try.
