Two wanted to savour “chee cheong fun” (rice noodle roll) so we drove around the neighborhood trying our luck only to find all the CCF stalls were closed for the day. Instead of wasting more time driving around, we settle for this restaurant that specializes in “bamboo noodle” (竹升面) in Kuchai Lama.
Outlet was small and a little stuffy during my previous visit but this time is worse coz the air-conditioners weren’t working due to some fault at their electrical switch board! How lucky we were! Due to the heat, we sat for less than 10 minutes before deciding doing alfresco.
Lime Juice @ RM 2.30 ~ Good choice for a warm day like today! Refreshing! An 8/10!
Fish Paste and Prawn Dumpling @ RM 6.50 (s) ~ I ordered this for wifey & mom but Two & I have the pork & prawn dumpling instead. It came with soup but I did not pour it in for photography purpose. I did that later of course! Prawns tasted fishy. Not good! A 2/10!
Noodle with Crispy Roast Pork & Wonton (燒肉餛飩竹升面/小) ~ @ RM 6.80 (s) ~ I had this which was very good! 3pcs of wonton and 6 slices of crispy and succulent roast pork came along with this springy bowl of bamboo noodle (竹升面)! Two ordered the same except without wonton but substituted with 8 slices of roast pork, also at the same price. Highly recommended! A 10/10!
Noodle with Braised Chicken Feet (炖雞腿竹升面/小) @ RM 6.10 (s) ~ Ordered this for mom which originally comes with mushrooms but they ran out of it, so they replaced it with an additional chicken feet instead! Nice, soft and the skin came off tat easily the minute you placed it in the mouth! Noodle is perfect! Good! An 8/10!
Overall bill came to RM 43.80 with a 5% service charge (RM 1.10) and an additional RM 0.40 for 2 takeaway boxes. Good place for a springy and tasty bowl of “Jook Sing Mien” but parking is a hassle, especially during lunch hour! Will definitely return for other flavors!
