Pork innards soup also one of the eatery's signature dishes.

ONE of my latest finds is an obscure coffeeshop located in Sungai Way, Petaling Jaya.

This place specialises in chee chap thong (pork innards soup) and woo thou fan (yam rice).

It was introduced to me by Lee Hong Leng, an old friend and makan kaki.

Lee said he came to know about Sun Tho Yuen (N 03 05.305, E 101 37.031) coffeeshop through his friend Ah Yau, the head honcho of Nanyang Siang Pau Chinese daily’s photo department.

“The photo room guys took me to this coffeeshop that specialises in yam rice and I have been going back there as a regular customer ever since,” said Lee.

After hearing about how good the yam rice was, I gave it a go by following Lee to the coffeeshop in Jalan SS9A/2, Petaling Jaya.

It was not easy to find the makan place and the road leading to it was narrow.

Parking space is also scarce, so, it is advisable to car pool or, better still, walk or cycle.

And to the uninitiated, the coffeeshop is usually packed during lunch hour.

People who know of its existence take great effort to secure a table in order to dine there.

The old-timer preparing an order.
