Restoran Soon Hing @ Kota Kemuning

2 05 2011

A while ago, I came to know from my niece of a restaurant called Soon Hing at Kota Kemuning. The restaurant is apparently famous for its Wanton noodle and it is located just a stone throw away from Pun Chun Noodle House which is another famous place to eat around the area.

The overall environment at Soon Hing was clean, hygienic and orderly. This  provided a comfortable dining experience for their customers. Service was also efficient and our food arrived on our table without waiting too long.

First up was the roast duck Wanton noodle. The roast duck skin was crispy while the meat was tender and moist. The duck definitely contributed to the overall tastiness of the meal.

The noodle was springy and freshly made. You can tell how skillful a plate of Wanton mee was made by tasting the texture of the noodle.

The curry chicken Wanton noodle was also noteworthy. Unlike most conventional curry which is more diluted, the curry served with Wanton noodle has to be thick so that it doesn’t become too watery once it is mixed with the black sauce.

The gravy was rich with ‘santan’ and curry flavour. The chicken meat was also delicious.

Soon Hing definitely offers one of the better Wanton noodle around town. If you are living around the vicinity of Kota Kemuning, I am sure you would have heard of this place. The place was packed during the weekend which is a sure sign of the quality of food served there.

Soon Hing offers different varieties of Wanton Noodles. I will definitely make my way back to this restaurant again to try their food soon!

Pun Chun Noodle @ Bidor

14 06 2010

Two weeks ago, I drove up to Ipoh for a short weekend holiday. Since Ipoh is famous for its food, I thought it would be a good idea to bring along my camera to snap some pictures while enjoying the local delicacies there. We decided to leave early Saturday morning to avoid the weekend traffic and headed up north until we reached Bidor town which is about 70 km away from Ipoh.

Bidor is a small town where you can still see people using bicycle to travel. Along the main road, there are few rows of shops selling fruits. One of the most famous place to eat at Bidor is undoubtedly Pun Chun Noodle. I had been to their branch in Kota Kemuning but I was curious to see how the original shop in Bidor fares.

One thing for sure…. Patience is a virtue and it is a virtue that all customers must have in order to get a chance to eat the food here. The amount of people eating at this coffee shop is akin to having mad rush year end sale! You have to wait next to the table very closely in order to secure a seat once the customers leave. Well, I guess this can’t be help as the popularity of Pun Chun Noodle has attracted people from afar.

First off, we tried their famous Herbal Duck Soup (RM 6.50). The soup was served in an old steel container which gave a very authentic feel to it. The aroma is unmistakeably strong with scent of herbs emitting from the brown colour soup.

The duck meat is tender and has a rich taste of herbs as a result of boiling it with the herbal soup for hours. Highly recommended.

The dried noodle (RM 4.50) was pretty good although I find the texture slightly harder compared to the one at Kemuning. Nevertheless, the combination of Char Siew with the dark sauce noodle still packs a punch.

One thing I did notice was the size of their wanton. It was not as big as the ones served at Kota Kemuning. Taste wise, I do prefer the Kota Kemuning ones too.
