Noodles like strings of springs!@Nippy Noodle Restaurant, Kuchai Lama

follow This was one of those days, where foodieventure enthusiasm beats convenience. It takes about a good 30-40minutes drive to Kuchai Lama from my place, but there’s been several reviews about Nippy Noodles (I’m sorry it really sounds like Ni Ni to me, which is a little obscene), that they have awesome noodles and charsiew..both of which are toppers on my foodie list. It wasn’t easy to find so I was glad that waze had a point for Nippy Noodles. The shop is a little gloomy looking inside,definitely not what I had expected.  

Good thing I was early and the place was still quite empty, hence food came really quickly. The noodles are made with the traditional method, using bamboo poles and hand made of course. They had posters all around emphasizing that premium wheat flour and eggs are used to make their noodles.

I guess it sounds like a whole bombastic package to me, and after I lifted them strings of noodles up, truly they were very springy! And the egg flavour wasn’t over powering too, so that’s good.

The portion isn’t big so if you have a big powerful suctioned mouth, you could finishthe entire bowl in three slurps! 

I ordered 3 toppings all the porky way up! Gotta say no one has really made a perfectly balanced awesome bowl of charsiew wanton noodles, one or the other component would always be just a bit lacking.

In this case was their meat dishes. All three toppings were really quite average and nothing major to rave on, but it would make you fuller eating them together with your awesome bowl of strings of springs.

If I come by here again the next time around, I’d probably just order a bowl of plain noodles, or maybe two? 😂

For noodle lovers, gotta say this is a worthy bowl which reminds me somewhat of the famous Hong Kong wantan noodles, Mak’s noodles, you can read about Mak’s noodle from one of my old posts :

Bouncing fish balls (no joke!)@Lucky Restaurant, Ipoh

We were all on a binge overdrive. Immediately after Xin Quan Fang’s porky loading session, we drove over to Lucky to reminisce our adoration towards their fish balls. It was about 11am and the place already had a few patrons around. I would say we got the first fish ball batch for the day!

Unfortunately I could not upload the slow-mo video of my fish ball bouncing on my bowl after free falling a ruler’s height up. They were seriously bouncy! ChowSingChi God of Cookery style.

The wantans were really fresh as well. Most importantly, they tasted home cooked. And they gave you an entire prawn inside the wantans. Hotel quality material in a laid back setting. Yummy!

Fried mantis prawns. At 11am. After porky curry noodles overload. Says alot about how mad we were towards foodieventuring! Lucky has always lived up to the standards, serving delicious and fresh seafood dishes. They were crunchy, on the outside batter but fresh and sweet prawn meat hidden inside the golden wrappers.

Lucky restaurant checked! Next stop, tau foo far! Ok we are still “having breakfast” at this moment, and hey it’s only 11.30am 🙂
