REALLY GOOD
1st MEE SIAM
Anak Baba, Kuala Lumpur
“A noodle salad of spicy-fried beehoon served with cucumber, egg, fishcake, fried shallots and a twist of freshly cut lime. Topped with homemade tamarind dressing.” ~ This was really good! Lots of flavours going on in this simple old-school dish... sweet, sour, spicy, savoury, all playing together without overpowering each other. The sambal that came with this was da bomb too!
2nd TREASURE BOX CLAYPOT LOH SEE FUN
Goon Wah Damansara Jaya, Petaling Jaya
Rice pin noodles (also known as silver needle noodles) served in a claypot which is placed over a flame. When the dish is served, you need to mix everything up in the pot. Stir, toss, sizzle, sizzle... Utterly delicious. Fun fact - loh see fun literally means rat noodles in Cantonese. The noodles are so called because they are tapered and look like rats' tails.
3rd KWAY TEOW GORENG
Rathas Curry House, Puchong
They do a really nice stir-fried kway teow (flat rice noodles) here. Great flavour, not too oily nor soggy and just spicy enough to tickle your tongue. Served on a banana leaf for extra aroma 🙂.
PRETTY GOOD
4th KUAY TEOW GORENG
The Ganga Café @ Sea Park, Petaling Jaya
Nicely done wok-fried rice noodles. This had a nice balance of spicy, sweet, sour and salty. It might be a bit too spicy for some so be sure to tell them to make it less spicy if you can’t handle the heat.
5th MAGGI GORENG
Original Kayu @ SS2, Petaling Jaya, Petaling Jaya
Stir-fried instant noodles, specifically using the Maggi brand of noodles and usually in curry flavour. Its a very common dish, but it is also easy to mess up. Overcook it and it becomes a soggy mess of soft noodles. Undercook it and it’s still “crunchy”. Truth be told I didn’t have high hopes but I’m happy to note that the Maggi Goreng here is quite decent. Nice level of heat with some char thrown in too.
6th MAGGI GORENG
Syed Bistro Restaurant, Puchong
Stir fried instant noodles, a popular dish amongst young Malaysians. Surprisingly better than what I expected. Still not a fan of this place though.
7th MEEHOON GORENG
Rathas Curry House, Puchong
Not too bad, although I feel the kway teow or the mee goreng is better. Meehoon sometimes tend to be a little too soft when they overcook or oversoak.
