Restoran Do Re Mi @ Ara Damansara

19 07 2010

One of the coffee shop that I usually frequent during lunch time is Restoran Do Re Mi at Ara Damansara. Apart from its catchy name which is synonymous to musical notes, this place is quite popular among office workers due to the variety of food that are sold there.

A visit to this coffee shop won’t be complete without trying the Bitter Gourd Noodle (RM 4). Usually, the idea of cooking noodle with bitter gourd may not sound to appealing to most people including yours truly. However, my skepticism instantly diminished as soon as I had a taste of its soup. Not only was the soup sweet, the bitter gourd compliments the taste pretty well.

The inclusion of pork slices was a plus point together with a huge chunk of toufu.

Bitter gourd has never tasted so good…

My colleague took the vegetable egg noodle as its texture is different from the usual type of noodle.

I ordered the Imperial Noodle (RM 5.80) which was served in a mini wok. Having a fancy name like Imperial Noodle sure sounded appealing to me. True to its name, Imperial Noodle, implying a majestic meal has a variety of stuff in it. From a huge chunk of crab meat and fried fillet, the dish certainly looked appetizing.

The fishballs were springy and tasted quite alright.

They also included half cooked egg on top of the noodle.

Overall, the noodle was pretty okay although my preference still goes to the Bitter Gourd Noodle.

The soup has a clear taste which was a surprise for me as I would expect a more flavoursome taste due to the handful of stuff in it. Personally, I find it a bit bland for my taste bud.

Agreed that this shop sells one of the best bitter gourd noodle in town. I would say better than those bitter gourd specialty shop in Bandar Puteri Puchong.
