AMAZING
1st BAK CHOR MEE
Tai Hwa Pork Noodle, Singapore
The first time I visited this stall there was a 40-minute wait. And then came the Michelin Star and the wait got even longer. But you know what? I would still wait. And yes, I would hop on a plane (or bus) for this.
2nd SINGAPORE-STYLE RAMEN
A Noodle Story, Singapore
Listed in Singapore Michelin Bib Gourmand 2016, 2017. This was fan-freaking-tastic! Tender, flavorful charshu, plump HK-style wontons (they are huge!), a soy-flavoured hot spring egg and a crispy potato-wrapped prawn sit on a bed of thin noodles tossed in a homemade sauce, offering a feast for the eyes and the stomach. Go early, as they only make limited bowls each day. Or purchase a fast pass from Klook that allows you to skip the queue. Do it!!!
3rd KOLO MEE
7th Mile Kitchen, Petaling Jaya
Springy thin egg noodles tossed in a light, porky sauce and topped with char siew (roasted pork), minced pork and spring onions. Very satisfying and one of the best in PJ.
4th CHILLI PAN MEE (DRY)
Restoran Super Kitchen Chilly Pan Mee, Petaling Jaya
This bowl of noodles comes with a runny egg, fried ikan bilis (anchovies), minced pork and fried shallots. Scoop as much or as little of the dried chilli mixture that’s available on every table as you like and mix everything up thoroughly. Go easy and add the chilli gradually because that stuff is potent. You will cry.
REALLY GOOD
5th DRY NOODLES WITH DUMPLINGS
Restaurant Station 8, Petaling Jaya
This was delicious! Noodles had a nice firm bite to them and the dumplings were fat and juicy. This also came with a little saucer of chinese black vinegar which you can mix into your noodles to give it an extra dimension. So, so good.
6th HK STYLE WANTAN NOODLE (DRY) WITH ROAST PORK + CHAR SIEW
Boon Signature Roast Pork, Petaling Jaya
Boon to me has one of the best roast pork in town. The tender, juicy meat with super crispy skin always keeps me going back for more. The char siew stands well enough on its own as well, with its sticky, sweet caramelized coating and the noodles remain firm even though I had this to go and ate it around 30 minutes after I picked it up. Prices seemed to have gone up slightly but still worth it to me.
7th BIBIM GUKSU
Moim, Petaling Jaya
Sweet, savoury, vinegary, garlicky, spicy and so, so tasty!
9th TOMATO NOODLE
7th Mile Kitchen, Petaling Jaya
A very popular Sarawakian dish which is basically noodles cooked in a tomato-based broth. This was my first time having this as I've never seen in anywhere in the Klang Valley. I love it! Those noodles had plenty of 'wok hei' and tomato gravy was almost like ketchup but with a thinner consistency and more flavourful. That, of course is not everyone's bottle of ketchup so this is very much a love it or hate it dish. But this is definitely very close to what is sold in Sarawak, according to my Sarawakian friend. Thumbs up!
10th IBU'S MEE SIAM
Wondermama, Kuala Lumpur
Stir fried rice vermicelli topped with fried chicken (really good!), ikan bilis, shredded cucumber and omelette. Pour in the broth that comes with it and you'll have one delicious bowl of food. This is spicy, sour, sweet and savoury all at once. Must order.
11th GINGER WINE WITH EGG MEE SUA
Next Station Noodle House 百家村面家, Petaling Jaya
Nice and gingery. Would have preferred more wine in the soup, but for the price it’s actually not bad. Would order again!
12th #08 EGG NOODLES + MINCED PRAWN & PORK WONTON + ROASTED PORK + CRAB + CRISPY PORK + ROASTED DUCK
Bamee Kon Sae Lee, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon
When you have that internal struggle and you can’t decide if you want pork, crab or duck... just get everything. No regrets!
13th SZECHUAN "DAN DAN" LA MIAN IN HOT AND SOUR SOUP
Dragon-i Peking Duck Restaurant @ 1 Utama Shopping Mall, Petaling Jaya
Hand-pulled noodles in a spicy peanut-y soup. I liked this a lot more than I thought I would. The soup isn't too spicy, and it is sweet and savoury and nutty all at the same time.
14th HOT-FUN HOR-FUN
Wondermama, Kuala Lumpur
Rice noodles served with minced chicken, crunchy bean sprouts and crispy dried shrimps in a curried broth. This was like a cross between a laksa and curry chee cheong fun. Old school with a modern twist, if that makes sense. Quite nice. And how cute is that name?
15th LA MIAN WITH PORK DUMPLING IN HOT SAUCE
Paradise Dynasty @ Paradigm Mall, Petaling Jaya
Noodles made in-house. If you're lucky you might get to see the noodle master in action, stretching and pulling the dough until it becomes thin strands of noodles. Dumplings were bigger than what I expected (yay!). I suspect there's Szechuan pepper in the sauce as my tongue started going numb after a few bites. Spicy stuff.
16th ROAST PORK NOODLES
Restaurant Megah Good Luck Dim Sum, Petaling Jaya
It’s a simple dish, nothing too complicated. Noodles tossed in a dark soy sauce with a generous ladle of curry over it and a side of roasted pork. But sometimes it’s the simple things in life that are the most enjoyable. Of course it doesn’t hurt that the roasted pork is really good as well 😉.
17th KAMPUA MEE
Restoran Win Hou Dim Sum & Steamboat, Petaling Jaya
Chewy, toothsome noodles tossed in dark soy sauce and lard (very important!) and topped with charsiew and fried wantons. Just simple, humble fare. Nothing complicated but it really does hit the spot. This place serves up some really great Sitiawan style noodles. Definitely worth checking out.
18th FRIED BEAN SAUCE NOODLE
Jin Taiwan 今台湾, Puchong
It’s a simple dish. Just some noodles topped with a fermented bean sauce that has been cooked with some minced pork and some cucumber strips for a bit of freshness. But this never fails to hit the spot for me. One of those dishes in the Comfort Food category.
19th SATAY BEEHOON
EAT., Singapore
Rice vermicelli, pork slices (or maybe chicken?), cuttlefish, tofu puffs, cockles and kangkung doused in a mildly spicy satay sauce. Unpretentious and satisfying.
20th MEE REBUS
Ali, Muthu & Ah Hock Kopitiam @ Oasis Sq, Petaling Jaya
Yellow noodles in a thick gravy which I’m thinking is sweet potato or potato based. And topped up with a hard boiled egg, some fritters, potatoes and fried tofu. Don’t forget to squeeze that lime over the noodles! Slurpilicious!
PRETTY GOOD
21st FRAGRANT SPRING ONION & SHRIMP DRY NOODLE
Din Tai Fung 鼎泰豐 at 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Petaling Jaya
Pretty good becomes really good if you add their chili oil. That stuff is addictive!
22nd HAKKA MEE
Taman Selera PJ Old Town, Petaling Jaya
It’s a simple noodle dish, just egg noodles with minced pork, pork balls and fish cakes. The noodles had a nice bite to them and the gravy was full of porky goodness. Not too oily, not too dry. It’s good, but it’s not necessary to go all the way to PJ Old Town and struggle with the parking for a plate of noodles.
23rd KAMPUA MEE
Win Hao Dim Sum House, Petaling Jaya
Sitiawan-style kampua mee tossed in a dark soy sauce and lard mixture. The noodles had a nice, chewy bouncy texture. So QQ! Fried wantons were decent too, thin skin and not greasy. I won’t comment on the charsiew as I don’t favour this style of lean meat charsiew 🙈.
24th DRY TOM YAM NOODLE
Poppo Kanteen Puchong, Puchong
Very sour, very spicy. Right up my alley!
25th KAMPUA MEE
MAMA TING Sarawak noodle, Petaling Jaya
If I remembered correctly this should be the black version. It’s supposed to come with sliced charsiew but we were too early and it wasn’t ready yet. They replaced it with minced pork and I’m really not complaining. Lots of porky goodness in this plate of noodles.
26th BI BIM GUK SU
Ko Hyang, Subang Jaya
“Sweet and spicy noodle with vegetables” Not that much vegetables, but this did hit the spot.
27th CHAR SIEW NOODLE
Ming Kee Porridge SS2, Petaling Jaya
This would have been Really Good had the meat been a little more tender. The taste was good, sweet and sticky with caramelization. Noodles were pretty great too, tossed in a flavourful porky sauce.
