Too Elastic

After eating at the Food Court in Seremban Main Market, we went in search of Yi Poh Restaurant which is famous for its noodles. As we were still full, we just bought two packets of noodles as takeaway.

The noodle is like Lai Fun (those thick white noodles used in Assam Laksa) and I find the noodle too springy almost hard for my liking so I just ate one mouthful. I think it is MYR5.30 per packet.

  1. oh.. what are those meat-like toppings? Are those ground beef/pork? Based on how it looks.. this may not really be my ideal noodle dish but I won't mind giving it a shot if ever..
    thanks for sharing

    1. Yes, those are ground pork. Do you like springy noodles?

    2. haha not really but we have one noodle dish here we called "Palabok" which has springy noodle texture and it tastes so good (well, maybe because of the thick sauce topped to it)

  3. Tried that, ok...better than the kway teow served in the same way but the Hakka mee was the best - nicer than the one at the market...(and a lot of Kuching kolo mee and Sibu kampua mee over here even - very good)

    1. P.S.
      Tapao-ing may make a world of difference - some things may taste even better, some...not worth the trouble of eating them.

    2. The noodle is supposed to be softer after tapao-ing but they are still as springy/hard. I miss out buying the Hakka mee from here.

    3. Read your post! Since you wrote that Hakka mee is the best, will eat that the next time we are in Sban.

  6. Mun, I have not tried fried springy lai fun before and by the look of the photo I think I would not like it too. Looks very oily too.

    1. Somehow it looks oily in the photo. I can't remember whether it was oily in reality or not.

    1. Did you try this one when you were in Seremban last time?

      Delete
    2. No, didn't even know of its existence. My purpose of going to Seremban was to visit a relative so not much time to go makan-makan.

    1. Then you must go and try this. I think you will like it because it is very springy!

  11. I can imagine the taste of using that type of noodles which could be too thick and springy.

    1. Instead of calling this Lai Fun, they call it Lau Shi Fun.

  12. Lou She Fun is my second favorite type of noodles, just behind bihun. But I prefer it cooked in soup more than the dry soy sauce style.

    1. You like soft lou she fun or those very elastic type (until I must chew so long to make sure they are all minced up in my mouth before I swallow). I like those soft, soft type.

  13. It looks a bit oily, or is just the matter of the angle you took picture of it?
