Too much

Stir fried mee suah - MYR7.50 for a regular portion at Soon Lei. After eating this, I realise that I don't like wok hei (the taste of a hot wok) in my food because this dish is full of wok hei and I prefer it to be lighter in taste.

  1. My missus and my girl like it. I'm fine without...as long as there are enough ingredients to make the dish tasty. Wow!!! RM7.50 is a bit on the high side, can't really see what is in the dish other than the taugeh and the egg.

    1. There are chinese waxed sausages (lap cheong) cut up into strips too which I don't quite like because I don't like to eat lap cheong. This is a air conditioned place so I guess that's why the price is on the higher side.

  2. I wouldn't mind as long as it is not too dry.

    1. It is not too dry because it is on the oily side.

  3. I may take this for dinner as long as it is not too oily. But I think it is a bit expensive compared to Ipoh standard. Is it the normal price for KL?

    1. This is an air conditioned eatery so the price is higher than a coffee shop.

  4. I always thought that in order to get the wok hei the wok has to be super hot for frying which I find it to be unhealthy because the dish would be overheated. I like those taugeh.

    1. It is true that the wok has to be super hot to get wok hei so it is unhealthy for the cook to be inhaling all the hot oil fumes. But the food is quickly stir fried in the hot, hot wok so the food is not overheated.

  5. I happen to like wok hei so I will enjoy this fried mee suah. When I saw your post title I thought you were referring to the portion size :)

  9. wok hei is nice but not in big portion of noodles. I once had Char Kuey Teow full of wok hei and I feel like eating some 'burnt noodle' halfway thru...
