Char kuey teow is definitely one of Malaysia’s most popular dishes, but only a few restaurants know how to get this seemingly simple dish just right!
Many char kuey teow lovers who frequent stalls around Kelana Jaya have definitely heard of this famous stall in the Jamal Mohamed Restaurant along Jalan SS5A/9 (previously known as Subang Ria), which is located right next to the Football Association of Malaysia building.
Known affectionately as ‘Aunty Gemok’, this lady’s stall had served up delicious Halal Penang style char kuey teow to countless loyal customers for decades. However, news recently surfaced that the famous cook has sadly passed away, according to the New Straits Times.
[FOOD NEWS] We are sad to confirm (from Restoran Jamal's team himself) the passing of one of our Food Lejens, Aunty…
News of her death saddened many Malaysians who had enjoyed her food for years, and netizens paid tribute to her on social media. People not only remembered her delicious cooking, but also her kind and friendly personality.
Have you visited Aunty Gemok’s stall before?
Aunty Gemuk is a local legend. Totally transformed Restoran Jamal Mohamed aka FAM. Just 5 mins from my office. Over the years I have gravitated to Subang Ria more, but yes, CKT Aunty Gemuk will always be special. RIP Aunty. pic.twitter.com/KwVukLTVCv

Been enjoying her kuey tiaw since my younger days, and when I grew older, she would always ask “ahmoi Astro kenapa sudah lama tidak mari” every time I came to makan. RIP Aunty. You will be missed 😢 pic.twitter.com/LaxX4OyiEE

Nothing brings people together the way food does, and Aunty Gemok is certainly a testament to that.
Our condolences go out to her family and friends. Aunty Gemok and her amazing char kuey teow will surely be missed! RIP.
