Never know that nearby my office have such shop. Was recently introduce by my another friend that I should visit this Pork noodle place at Kota Damansara nearby my office. According to my friend, Ah Loy Sabah Pork Noodle is slightly different compare to any other pork noodle shop because it is Sabah version.

[update: 1/11/2018: They have move to new location at Kota Damansara CIMB – The Strand]

Ah Loy Pork Noodle (3)

Apparently this shop have been operating in this area for quite a while and it is famous among all the working crowd. At time, if you come on the wrong timing, you could expect to wait at least 30-45 minutes.

Ah Loy Pork Noodle (1)

This is my 4th visit here and I usually come before 12.30pm or after 2pm to avoid the crazy crowd.

Ah Loy Pork Noodle (2)

Variety of noodle for you to pick from and their hakka noodle is the one to go after which is their signature noodle.

Usually my order is Koey Teow noodle till dicover this noodle and tried it. love the slight chewy texture and the dark soy sauce give it a little sweetness and pork lard to give the awesome flavour into it. Simple delicious meal.

Ah Loy Pork Noodle (7)

On the soup base, pork is cook to perfection where it is not overcook that makes it hard, they cook it just right. Also in the soup they added some salted veggie that gives you a little punch of sourness that make it quite interesting flavour pork soup noodle profile. Look at the colour of the soup and you can judge by it they are cooking it for long hours to get such no clarify.

Ah Loy Pork Noodle (8)

A simple meal for my lunch yet satisfying. Different compare to others as they have salted veggie in soup. Price per bowl ranges from RM 8 – RM 15 depending what you add on. Also they do have other side dish.

Recommended to order their dry version. As I always had my pork noodle in soupy version and find out that Ah Loy Sabah Pork Noodle best to have it in dry . Well, all my Sabah friends, need you guys to come try and let me know the authenticity of it.

Sometimes its a tough decision when the question of where to eat pops up. Just at times do not know what to eat and decided to make a round at my neigbourhood area to hunt for food. Then remember that there are 2 huge food court available around the area of Kepong. This round trying out Kepong Food Court.

kepong kopitiam (3)

No difference like any other food court in Taman Megah or SS15, its another huge food court and I am lost again without knowing what to eat and even walk 3 rounds and still cant make up my decisions, find that this Kepong Food Court is not really complete.

 Then ended up ordering Pork Burger that sells in food court.

kepong kopitiam (5)

 and by looking at the uncle serve his food out of his stall, certainly capture my attention that sells authentic Taiwanese Food.

kepong kopitiam (6)

Choices are pretty decent as like  Taiwanese food all the main selection are there and decided to settle for this stall too.

kepong kopitiam (7)

Ordered the Sour and Spicy Soup Noodle and turns out to be very good. Its quite sour and the spicy taste will hit you after a while and if gives us the challenge to continue eating. Sprinkle with some chili flakes to make it more spicy. The set back is only the noodle is slightly overcook. Nevertheless still a great bowl of noodle for RM5.

kepong kopitiam (12)

After finishing my noodle and looking at the uncle busy serving this Braised Pork rice, it look and smells good. Then decided to give it a go. Love the braised pork sauce was added in and shredded pork slices are soft and flavourful along with rice is just another perfect combination.

kepong kopitiam (14)

Then I was given complimentary Chicken Feet as the uncle see us eat till so happy on his food. Its soft and love the light herbal taste on it too. I must say that for a Taiwanese Food in Kopitiam and at the price, this is surely a highly recommended stall.

 My friend ordered Pork Noodle which is totally out. Don bother.

kepong kopitiam (9)

and here comes my Pork Burger from Big Boys Burger. Ordered it with extra cheeze and bacon.

kepong kopitiam (10)

kepong kopitiam (11)

No doubht for the pork patty is well prepared, season and quite solid. The taste is good for such a medium size patty that did not overcook with cheeze that just melted on the top that makes it perfect along with light saltiness from bacon. Overall its a nice burger pricing at RM 11.90. Find is slightly overprice but nevertheless a good try  . .

If you do come here, Taiwanese Stall is the most highly recommended and do let the uncle know that not to overcook the noodle.

While we were on the way back from our great exploration of a homestay that is located in Orchard Heights at Karak (click here), we were introduce by Major Ng there is a restaurant that we need to hunt on the way back we need to stop by Bentong right before into Genting tunnel if you coming from Karak, as to disappointment that restaurant, closed for private function. As for second alternative that we got introduce is Restaurant 126 along the stretch.

126 (1)

Its a simple Chinese restaurant with plastic chairs and wooden round table.

126 (2)

This is their signature dish, Pork Noodle @ RM 25 – as the pork slice being deep fried to perfection as every bite is filled with cracking sound if the pork doesnt soak too long in the dark sauce. Can taste that the yee mee noodle is more like a homemade version, springy and we ordered another plate of this with a comment “wah lau, can finish meh” ended up finish also. Highly Recommneded~

126 (3)

With Something soupy, we  were introduce with mee hoon with fresh ginger chicken. The soup definately taste ginger spicy as they cook along with lots of ginger, and its very nice. Next round I would order less mee hoon more soup.

126 (4)

Kai Lan with Garlic slice.

126 (5)

126 (6)

Order Fish slice, with mushroom and vegetable.

126 (7)

Wild Boar Pork Curry is another dish that we are enjoying with light spicy and pork being slice thin and cook to perfection.

126 (8)

Second in our top list for the lunch is this Marmite Pai Kuat, well caramelize with sauce and its satisfying. Recommended.

126 (9)

Who can read the bill please help me translate too. It comes with a total with this for 8 pax. Still cheap.

If you wanna make a turn before Genting, you sureby can stop at this area if you coming from KL, as this row of shop house is located right after Genting Tunnel and you have to drive another 15 mins down hill to find the next U turn. It would be another great pit stop for food. Recommended!

In KL it is quite hard to find some place that serve nice instant cook Pork Noodle, and as one of the recent introduction by my friend Ian that turns out to be  one of his favorite place when comes to Pork Noodle soup, Restaurant Hong Cha that serve a mixture of Japanese home made sushi and their mains are Pork Noodle Soup.

Hong Cha (1)

Located in the heart of OUG right whereby pasar area, or infront of BP station if I am not mistaken is filled with a side by side kopitiam that flank this shop.

Hong Cha (2)

As I was told by my friend, they do sell in the morning/ afternoon session right behind at the corner coffee shop that most people would know and pricing its slightly cheaper compare to this shop that only cater for night crowd.

Hong Cha (3)

Price are pretty decent and there are other options too if you dislike pork noodle.

Hong Cha (4)

Hong Cha (5)

I was highly recommend by Ian to go for dry option that it actually separate the soup and noodle. Look at those chunky pork lard that they have added in and shredded pork along.

Hong Cha (6)

Then serve along with a bowl of pork soup that filled with some seafood. ‘Pork and Seafood Mee’ @ RM 6.50.

Hong Cha (7)

They are pretty generous with the ingredient that being added in with chunks of pork meat and best of all, which for the first time I came across they added some seafood, squid and prawns to make the soup base more sweet. Slightly salty to my liking with a fried garlic and oil being added on to make it a perfect bowl. Looking at the additional item I can add, of course egg is a must to be added to make it even better.

Hong Cha (8)

Overall, I still prefer my pork noodle soupy version and this place is still quite a decent place to dine for pork noodle during night time.  By my list so far, I still love the stall at Restaurant Win Heng Seng for the instant cooking pork noodle at Jalan Imbi.

Last round when I back to Penang for Chinese New Year, a few days before the festive season, woke up early and went to one of the busiest market at housing area which is the Ayer Itam Market. The market had been here from many decades ago that start to originate people that stay up in the hill brings down fresh vegetable to sell. From time to time the market had develop till as what it is today.

During festive season, this market is super packed with people to do their last minute shopping and it is advisable to park your car a bit far as very limited parking space available, with its narrow street just enough for 2 cars to passby.

Ti Kuih is one of the item that must buy during Chinese New Year. After a short stroll, we head to a nearby kopitiam for breakfast.

Kedai Kopi Kapin is one a famous kopitiam around the neighbourhood  . . . One of the hawker stalls to look after is the Hokkien Mee (Prawn Mee) which have people lining up for it.

As we order too many food for 3 of us then we just order only just Wan Tan to try out and the skin is very soft just that the sesame oil is abit strong.

 Penang Curry mee is always one of my favourite, cuz they have ‘Pig Blood’ and the chili is their own homemade style that makes every one is different in taste.  RM3

 ‘Pork Noodle’ as I always prefer my version in Koey Teow with Mee and this are cook instant. The soup taste is okay only, as I prefer my soup base to be a bit thick in flavour and a bit more of pork lard. RM3

This is the signature of the shop ‘Prawn Mee’ with some of us like to add a bit of ‘Loh’ which is the soup base for ‘Loh Mee’ that makes it a kind of Prawn Mee (ying yong style) which is most of the people are ordering. The loh is a bit thick and the prawn mee soup base is sweet, that ‘pai kuat’ taste is in there, shows that used alot of pork bone. RM 2.80

Then we walk to a street next to it and I found something more interesting which is this whole street sell Curry Mee with at least around 3-4 stalls selling the same thing. Ken told me that every stall have their own style of chili and soup base which makes them have their very own customer base.

 We sit to this stall and I was very curious, this ‘Chee Cheong Fun’ stall is very busy and non stop customer coming in and I decided to give it a try. The chee cheong fun is very good, very soft ‘fun’ that mix with thick texture of shirmp paste ‘Heh Kor’ and their very own homemade chili and fried onions. RM1.50 

 Then I stroll around among other stalls and this stall which is family operated and this 2 ah ma working so hard preparing in a very traditional by using charcoal, and people keep pouring in to buy. I also give it a try.

 As what I said, every stall is packed and have their own style, and this ah ma different is the squid and the sauce of it.

 Mild sweet soup base add with their own homemade chili with squid makes this bowl of curry mee quite unique in taste. A bit spicy yet sweet and I quite like the soup base. Bought a packet for my parents and they don like it. I guess it depends on individual taste. A good try . . . 

This is located along the entrace of a Chinese School.
