Kuala Lumpur - The Ultimate KL-style Wanton Noodles found - on Old Klang Road!

klyeoh | Nov 8, 2012 06:08 AM

Just had one of the *best*-tasting wanton noodles this evening at this rather inconspicuous cluster of road-side stalls along Old Klang Road. If you’re driving towards Mid-Valley Megamall & KL city, these stalls should be on the left side of the road, easily recognized by “dai chow’ signage which several food blogs had highlighted:

Apparently, the fried Hokkien noodles stall here churned out a mean rendition, but I was brought here this evening by an office colleague who wanted to show me her favorite wanton noodle spot. One thing’s for sure – she was spot-on. The wanton noodles tasted absolutely divine – subtly flavored with a combination of soy-sauce, sesame oil, probably lard-drippings from their fabulous “char-siu”, plus other condiments which I’m sure the stall-owner/cook (who’s Cantonese) would most likely want to keep as a trade secret. His “char-siu” was also absolutely delicious – tender, fragrant, perfect flavors. A small bowl containing 3 wanton dumplings on the side was also very, very good.

We also ordered an extra bowl of “sui kow” – large pork-shrimp dumplings (also contained quite a bit shredded carrots), but I was not as enamored by this as much as the wanton noodles & smaller wanton dumplings.

Another side-order we had was from the Penang “Lobak” stall, but their offerings of meat-rolls, prawn fritters, “otak-otak” roll, hard tofu & century egg with pickled ginger were not very good at all. Avoid!

I *have* to come back for the fried Hokkien noodles another time.
