Where are all the good pork noodles stalls? Is there a famine in these simple pleasures of life? I used to eat this in my college days almost every night. There was this rolly polly of a man (a good advertisement for his food) who dished out pot after pot of this goodness for us hungry young souls.
There was this stall that I fell in love at first sight. Taken there by a friend after attending a noon funeral service, we have a solemn but hearty lunch. We need to eat to live right? Of course some confess that they live to eat! It was a corner shop at the T-junction, a confluence for those coming in from trendy Bangsar into Jalan Travers and then traditional/ethnic Brickfields.
I took my family there once with the promise that they will be eating the best pork noodles around. But alas it was closed and then later I found out that they have moved out of the premise which is vacant now and for rental. Makes no sense to me.
This stall has graced Brickfields for umpteen years. So I called this friend of mine and he told me the same story. He at least has the directions to this place. We set out to look for this stall. Instead of one now they have two. The father has moved into a food court (P/S called May Flower) next to a open car park (RM2.00/hr) a few hundred meters down the road (Jalan Tun Sambanthan) in the direction of KL. The son is running another stall in Restoran Yit Seang which is directly facing the main entrance of YMCA. Park inside YMCA (RM2.00/hr) and cross the road. We ate and 'ta pau' at the son's stall as it was the father's rest day. Nothing's lost.
Lots of minced and sliced pork plus liver. Tasty soup base (though some MSG was present) and the star attraction a half cooked egg. My friends MO is to order 2 eggs and slurped it down. I re-positioned mine on top of the noodles without breaking its yolk. It was good all the way without the unpleasant uncooked yolkish smell.
