Restoran Kuang Fei @ Tangkak

3 10 2011

While my friends have always rave about how tasty beef noodles are, I was never a fan of this dish until I stumbled across Restoran Kuang Fei at Tangkak. It didn’t take me long to find this place as Tangkak is a small town and everyone there know where this restaurant is located.

Apparently, Tangkak is very famous for its beef noodles and even Singaporeans would drive up all the way just to savour a bowl of this mouth watering meal.

Each bowl of beef noodle (RM 6 for big, RM 5 for medium) is served with beef (obviously) and cow stomach.

The sight cow stomach may not appeal many people, but it was certainly tasty.

Word of advice. Do order the big portion as the small bowl is too small and will hardly fill up your stomach.

The kuey teow noodle is noticeably larger than the ones I normally seen in KL. Taste wise, there is nothing I could fault about it. The soup has ample herbal taste with a tinge of salted vegetables flavour.

The meat and cow stomach were moist and easy on the mouth. It is no surprise that this restaurant has earned its reputation as one of the best beef noodle for so many years.

It is also worth mentioning that Kuang Fei set up its kitchen right in front of the shop to show its customers how the meal is being prepared hygienically. Thumbs of for its cleanliness.

If you happened to be driving around the southern region of Peninsular Malaysia, make sure you do give this place a try.

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.
