Jalan Trus is one of the oldest road in JB along with Wong Ah Fook. Kedai Kopi Mui Guan is opposite Kota Raya.The old side of Jalan TrusThe newer side of with The Puteri PacificThe second generation is still running this legendary curry wanton noodles. She is in the 60s now. Well-worn faces and well-worn formica tables still serving this world famous specialty. They have 4-5 shops I was told run by the families of the 2nd generation or maybe 3rd. In fact one shop allows for online orders.
However their noodles are made by one of the family to be used by these few shops exclusively. No wholesale stuff. Lots of eggs to make it thin, crinky and eggy and springy.
Their signature is the curry trail left in the noodles. To prepare firstly, oil, then soya sauce followed by home-made chili sauce were placed into the bowl. Finally the noodles were placed into a hot pot of water to cook and then pass through tepid water and then back into pot and finally into the bowl and then thoroughly mixed.
Check out how these noodles were prepared for us.
