My Favourite Coffee-Shop in KL

Weng Hing Coffeeshop on Jalan Imbi
I'd previously waxed almost deliriously lyrical over this coffeeshop that I'd frequented in my childhood here, but I wanted to post an updated, taken-from-The-Ritz-Carlton shot to highlight the unfortunate result of when commercialism trumps aesthetics (or to put it more plainly, windows.)  There is now a giant billboard wrapped around two sides of this classic shophouse where there were none before.  Well, I guess the upside to this visual atrocity is that I hope at the very least it means the coffeehouse and its tenants will get to stick around for another few decades before the rent gets too steep and another mall or office tower steps in to claim this primo piece of land.  In the meantime, I'm just thankful that one of Weng Hing's tenants - the pork noodle seller - still gets to dish out the goodness as he's done for the past 30 years. 
Minced pork noodles with pork cubes on the side.
