Recently, I have read from Vkeong’s blog that this is one of the worst experience he encounter as a food blogger. Since the shop is just a stone throw’s away from my office, I decided to head over for lunch after running some banking errands to see if it’s really that bad.
Since it’s a Friday afternoon, seats are aplenty there and the waiting time is also minimal. Notice that the person behind the stall is also different from the one feature at vkeong’s.
Hakka Noodles is pretty much a new thing in KL and I remember only started eating it when I was 16 or 17 and it always looked like Maggi Mee with minced meat, BBQ meat and some Wantons. It’s similarly presented here, so I guess all Hakka Noodles are the same except from Chong Ko Hakka Noodle at Pandan.
The noodles are somewhat springy very similar to the normal Wanton Mee, the only difference is that the dry version is white, and it’s quite lumpy so it takes some effort to mix everything around. It is also quite oily in it’s own way.
The dry version of the Hakka Noodle comes with 3 pieces of Wanton as well.
The wanton is proportionate in size and the filling is good, although I do find that the soup that comes with it a tad salty so I’m not sure if it’s MSG or the natural flavour of the soup.
Despite being feature on Ah Xian, I thought that the noodles was average and there’s not much ‘WOW’ factor that warrants a must eat if you are around this part of town. Sure as Vkeong mentioned, there’s lots of history behind the stall but as they always said, history is ‘history’, the present is what counts most and if couple up with bad attitude, you can be sure that over time, the only customers are just the old ones and the legacy will surely get left behind, don’t you think?
