I first came to know about this place from masak-masak's (http://masak-masak.blogspot.com) blog. However, I kinda forgotted about this place completely after that. One morning while I was driving in Aman Suria area to look for places for breakfast, I spotted Cempaka Village sign.
A quick chat with the owner revealed that she was the proprietor of Molly's Place in Damansara Kim. She relocated here after the building was sold to the Dragon-i Group and converted into their management office - and then changed the concept to Penang fares, hawker style :) Jenn loved to go to Molly's Place for dessert while on her way back from work in the past. Looking at the interior, it was less formal compared to Molly's Place.
Char koay teow with duck egg @ RM5.80 - a few of those handful places that offer duck egg with CKT. Throw in plump & juicy bean sprout, lap cheong (waxed sausage) as well as some cockles ("si ham" to the Chinese) and it's good to go. I love the fact that it was slightly spicy and the duck egg provided good aroma to it, but somehow it lacked of what we love about fried dishes - WOK HEI!! Not bad tasting though
Otak-otak toast set @ RM3.50 - Contrary to Otak-otak Place that serves the toasted breads and otak-otak separately, this place did everything for you. The layer of otak-otak was quite thick and it was still hot, making it a good toast :)
Barley Fu Chuk @ RM2.00 - Jenn loved her bowl of barley fu chuk as it was thick and flavourful.
Leo's verdict - Opened for business from 8am to 7.30pm. I noticed that they also serve economy rice to cater to the working crowds but of course, from lunch onwards. The food here is priced slightly higher than the hawker stall counterpart but served in a much nicer and cleaner environment. Service is also fast and friendly.
