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

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 :

2016 catch up with the ladies@Mrs James’s home

We finally, finally, finally managed to squeeze in another rendezvous catch up session at Bluerribonkate’s. I absolutely adore her housing area compound. I’d be jogging with my doggie everyday if I got a place here.

Hands down to the party planner who does everything filled with care and love. We are always intrigued by her dinner party hosting preparation.

We were all given a “welcome drink”, like cocktail sessions prior parties or entering a club haha. Only thing is that our drinks were made with love, freshly blended fruit juice craftily drafted into this cute bottles which she purchased online. Loved every sip of it!

She was busy stir frying away these sliced black pork meat, and we had some intense discussions over the frying pan over the facts and history behind black pork/iberico. Normally, we would just place the meat on the dish and that would be it, but hey, not blueribbonkate! Cute, evenly sized tomatoes as garnish, to decorate the yummylicious black pork slices freshly fried, and simmered over a glass of 07 Bordeaux.

I came with from a light lunch, so yes.. I was famished! Douf did the honour of pouring the Bordeaux while the rest of us helped take the food from the kitchen. Hats off, to starchef Mrs James!

A big fan of French I am.
Tonight from foodventura, to share with James and missus, Miss Golf and Douf, Clarendelle 2007, Bordeaux.

It has a nose of leather, earthy, some red fruits. Rather smooth palate with leather taste, but after breathing for a while, the sweetness became more apparent. It is pleasant to drink on its own without any food.

Portobello mushrooms coated with bacon and breadcrumbs, fried to perfection! Teeheehee. This was definitely WAY BETTER than the mushrooms we had in La….. At least the mushrooms were visible and not shriveled and thinly sliced till they looked like sliced garlic!

Bee hoon. Fried ala home cooked style. Just the way we liked it best. Nothing beats home cooked Bee hoon, which always tastes much nicer, and less oily. Needless to say, the ingredients were also generous! Full of vegs, bacon… Ooohlala!

The dishes were superb. James surely is a lucky lucky lucky man! The food was cleared quickly, bunch of vultures we are! We decided to open a second bottle, courtesy of her hubby’s.

Next round: cheese + bread + a pinot!

The star of tonight’s foodie agenda, was the brie. The creamylicious, soft, yummy brie. Bought from Isetan, KLCC. Missie Golf In Red buys her cheese regularly from there, and my jaw dropped when she shared that this gigantic slice of brie cost her only RM 11.77. (Need….to…push…up….my…dropped….jaw…with….my….hands)

Darn. That was the cheapest price for brie I’ve heard for such a big slab of that creamy yumminess. All the way down to Isetan, KLCC. Phew… Gotta mark down when is she making her next trip. Tumpang!

We heck cared about the calories for the night. Catch up session : no complaints about being fat please!

The Romanian Prahova Valley Pinot Noir. Sweet, citrus, rather round bodied, more direct than the Bordeaux. The crowd liked this bottle also, but among the two, my personal liking went to the Bordeaux. It would be better if we drank it after the Pinot.

Every good dinner must end with a sweet note. Here came, Garrett’s popcorn courtesy of Douf. Gotta say, of all my wine experiences, having with caramel popcorn was a first. Probably wasn’t the best food pairing choice (the over sweetness affected the taste of the pinot), but hey, we ain’t here to rate wines. Still carameliciously fun!

Twas was yet, another fun night. Glad to know great friends who love food and wine. ๐Ÿ™‚ time to mark down our busy calendar for the next catch up session!
