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 :

Porky madness curry noodles@Xin Quan Fang Kopitiam, Ipoh

TLCC family members were all geared up to work at the History of Redemption Seminar held in Ipoh that weekend. Apart from spiritual work, some of us departed early from KL to make it time for Xin Quan Fang’s curry mee!

We arrived about 10am, and there were clusters of people queueing up outside. Took us a good 15 minutes wait before we got ourselves a table. The table was a fit for 5. There were 8 of us, all adults. Time to suck in the tummy yo!

Our food came about 30minutes time, it was a holiday in some states including Perak, I guess that contributed to how packed the place was. Within seconds, we got hold of our chopsticks, ever ready to pounce onto these deliciousness placed before us.

“Kah Liew”, as how the locals call it. “Add ingredients” literally. We ordered them eat along with our curry mee.

Those who fancy em’ gutters: intestines, tongue, liver and sorts will gleam with joy eating this! I the timid one remain with the meat portions, but hey..timid but happy!

This steam chicken with prawns dish wasn’t too bad either, but the combination with the curry noodles was a little unconventional. I’d still prefer them with chicken rice.

Oink oink! Porkylicious madness up the roof! They were tender, smokey, crackling of the skin was definitely there. Among the three, the roast pork was the best dish for me. Yums!

The curry gravy was unlike other creamy dense curry noodles but also not clear broth either. It is like a combination of both worlds. Truly uniquely XFQ Style. Hence the long queues and challenge in getting available tables everyday. Foodiventurers who drop by Ipoh for a foodie hunt should mark this place down as there will not be curry noodles served in such a style anywhere else in Malaysia.

Although  the noodle portion was somewhat small, each one of us paid about RM 11 which was really quite alright for the variety of food we were getting.
