Lala Noodle


there was a big hype over this Lala Noodle Soup in Lai Foong Kopitiam 丽丰啦啦米粉 in Pudu.  Read up some blogs that it mention that currently it is helm by third generation. I often come here for beef noodle and little do know about this stall till last year it went viral. My friend told me I should come early before 10.30am or be prepare to wait 60-90 minutes.

It was a random decision on a weekend to visit here and I reached about 1pm. I was lucky that I only waited about 20 minutes for my bowl of noodle.

Just look at this colour of it. A slight yellowish oil at the side of it and clam is indeed very fresh. A generous amount of clamp indeed. @ RM 10

soup is pack with flavour, you can taste the rice wine, heat from the ginger, slightly fragrant from soy sauce, sweetness from the clamp. It is indeed a satisyfying bowl for your lunch. It would taste even better if it is on rainy day as a sip of the soup could keep your tummy warm.

If you are not too sure on where to head for your brunch, then you could consider dropping by here if you have some spare time to kill. It is a very busy kopitiam, hence while waiting, I did order my bowl of beef noodle to hit it on first.
