Mum's Favourite Steamed Rice, Opposite Southern Bank in KL Town

Welcome to my new workplace; KL town. There are many places to eat in KL town and I believe some of the best are located in the narrow alleyways. As with most stalls located in alleys this one doesn't really have a name but I'm calling it Mum's Favourite Steamed Rice because they place placards on their stall advertising their steamed rice with this name. It's one of my favourite places for lunch but their steamed rice isn't cheap and the portions may not be enough for some people (like me!).

As per the title this place is located opposite the Southern Bank branch in Kuala Lumpur's Jalan Hang Lekiu (where Segi College is also located). Each steamed rice costs RM4.30. You can choose your desired steamed rice based on the yellow cards that are put up in front of the stall. Pick a number and sit down to be served. Besides steamed rice the stall also serves what the Cantonese call "King Jai Meen" (literally Economical Noodles) which usually consists of a variety of fried noodles and some condiments. I've tried a few of their steamed riced offerings and most of them are pretty good.

The stall.

Curry Spare Ribs.

Mui Choy Kau Yuk (Pork Belly with pickled vegetables).

They have quite a variety of steamed rice here but they are quite popular and usually runs out at around 1pm. Unfortunately my office's lunch hour starts at 12.45pm! There'll be a few more blog posts about makan places near my office. I'll highlight just the ones I find are quite special. If anyone knows any nice place to try out in the KL town area please feel free to share.
