Pun Chun

As we seldom travel locally on day trips with my mother, we decided to make full use of this trip so we made a detour to Bidor to eat the famous Pun Chun duck noodle. It was about 4pm then. Actually we tried this dish once in their Kota Kemuning outlet and were not that impressed with it so we wanted to try the same dish at their original shop in Bidor and we were impressed now.

3 bowls of duck noodle in herbal soup - MYR9 each, iced white coffee - MYR2.2  

My mother loves this herbal soup - not salty but full of herbal taste. Only one of the bowls has a duck drumstick. The other two bowls have duck breast meat and all three bowls cost the same - MYR9. They should let us choose and charge a higher price for the duck drumstick.

Pork trotter noodle - MYR 5.80 - My spouse said this tastes good.

Pun Chun is on facebook

They do serve other types of noodles

Almost KL prices

    1. Good morning Princess Ribbon,

      Why are you still awake at nearly 3am?

      You don't like the herbal soup? The other wanton noodles are tasty too.

  2. I heard great things about this duck noodles from my dad, but I could never find it even passing by Bidor for a few times. Is it located along the main "old road", or need to turn into some junction?

    1. It is located along the main old road but on your right hand side, not on your left. I think the prices in this bidor hq is more expensive than the ara damansara branch.

  6. ah, the famous Pun Chun @ Bidor.. this was the usual stopover whenever we travel north last time.. but since the PLUS highway, I guess it has greatly been forgotten now, and rarely one would detour.. :)

  8. should charge higher price for duck drumstick?? but why?? I actually don't understand why drumstick is charged RM1 more in many places.. I mean everything are from the same chicken right?? if they are going to give the same portion, I don't see why drumstick should be more expensive.. a chicken has 2 drumsticks, so as 2 wings!! why isn't the same applied to wings?? haha.. anyway, not really an issue for me, as I don't fancy drumsticks at all, give me breast and I'm very happy, haha!!!

    1. So that people who want to eat the drumstick can specifically state that they want the drumstick. Demand vs supply. All also 2 but if more people want drumsticks than wings, then to be fair, those who is willing to pay more will get it if the supply is not enough to meet the demand.

  9. KL prices because it is a tourist spot... I think locals don't eat there so often? :) I think I have not eaten in this shop for many years now.. with the highway, I just bypassed.. next time you try Kampar town food.. not bad too!

    1. I have never eaten at this shop in Bidor before. I think the prices is higher than the prices in their KL outlets. Princess Ribbon has to verify this because she goes to their Ara Damansara outlet.

      The locals ate the same duck dish at another coffee shop but that coffee shop operates only in the morning until sold out I believe so we can't eat there cos closed already.

    2. Wonder where the locals eat then... must be cheaper and maybe nicer too! :)

    3. I read that a coffee shop opposite the bus station serves better duck thigh noodle.

  10. KL prices indeed! It's at a coffee shop not coffee house... I've tried before but found it rather forgettable.

    1. Actually the Ara Damansara outlet price is only RM8.50 I think but the look of it is not as good (I read from another blog). Eh, where did you read the words "coffee house" here?

      Of course forgettable if you can cook a better one yourself. :) Since I don't cook, this is very nice for me.
