KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 1 — If I had a choice between rice or noodles, it's always noodles for me.
Especially well-fried noodles. This I must admit is getting harder and harder to find.
At this roadside stall inside Taman Sentosa, the chef fries up a variety of delicious noodles.
The draw here, for many, is its reasonably priced Sang Har Mee.
Since smaller freshwater prawns are used here, the noodles are just RM22 for a single portion.
The Hokkien mee is slick with the shiny dark sauce.
Even the Cantonese mee is a good one with an eggy sauce that is less starchy.
What makes it exceptionally good is the super eggy sauce that coats the crispy noodle strands.
And even if the prawns aren't gigantic monsters, they taste sweet since it's freshly sourced from the nearby wet market.
Most of their regulars prefer the namesake Hokkien mee.
Here the noodles are slick with the dark, shiny black sauce. Bonus crispy lard fritters make this a dish to be relished.
The rarely-seen ginger duck 'yee mee' is also found at this stall.
You get to see plenty of wok action in the kitchen.
Another popular order here is the "Yin Yong" or mixed noodles cooked Cantonese style.
Again, the star is that eggy sauce that is lighter on the starch. That sauce makes it easy to eat your mix of fried beehoon and kuey teow noodles.
Both noodles are priced at RM11 for a single portion. You also have Loh Mee, Dry Fried Kuey Teow and Singapore Style Mee Hoon too.
This stall also offers the rarely-seen Ginger Duck Yee Mee (RM13). For these noodles, I took home a portion, letting the sauce infuse my noodles.
The place is just a roadside stall that is popular at lunch time.
Look for the stall with this small signboard with their list of noodles.
The sauce is mild with a ginger taste and chopped pieces of duck, making it a pleasant meal.
