It was a late Sunday morning, rather warm, and pampered folks like us want hawker food but in a cooler environment, so where do you head to ? 7 village lorrr. Another ‘cross-over’…. from the traditional kopitiam theme , to a ‘fast food’-ish concept. And it seemed to be working, all the tables are filled and more are waiting in line.
The 2 mains at 7 village are ‘ koay teow soup /koay teow therng 粿條湯 and ramen拉麵. And you can order side dishes like lorbak, chicken feet, fish nuggets, chicken , stir fried vege.
The writing orr should I say, the menu is on the wall…
I cancelled my order of iced milo when I saw the others ordering tong sui , copy cat that I was…the tong sui for the day was –logan + pak kor, It wasn’t too sweet, the pak kor was nice and soft.. A welcomed change to my traditional cuppa milo
I am not a big fan of koay teow soup, but I have to admit.. the koay teow soup at 7 village is pretty good ! the texture of the koay teow is smooth and seemed finer than the usual koay teows, the minced pork was tasty, the fishball was springy, the soup was yummy.. another satisfied customer. Oh, for fishball fans you can also order extra fishballs in your soup.
I didn’t get to try the ramen, but it looked pretty good to me too..u get the same minced meat +fishballs + sliced chicken , plus an extra half boiled egg.
We ordered some side orders, including :
Chicken feet :
Not like the Thai version where they removed all the bone and served the ‘skin’, this is the steamed version with the bones intact, , the skin were soft and although served only with some fried onions , spring onions and soy sauce, that seemed to enhance the taste. I enjoyed this.
The lobak –minced meat with 5 spice powder wrapped in fu churk (bean curd skin) and then deep fried was popular, it was ‘cleared’ very quickly. Not bad. The 7 village version was thinner than what you might get at the usual hawker stalls.
Overall, an enjoyable meal,7 village has 2 branches- the main outlet at Taman Aman Jaya, Off Raja Uda, and for this meal, we had it at the other branch which was at Taman Bayu Mutiara , Bukit Mertajam,. If you have a choice, I would recommend eating at the main outlet- which is a bit more spacious and better ventilated, compared to the BM branch which can be warm and a bit stuffy.
