WG Er Lou Cafe

 Thin noodles smoked duck (small) - MYR 13.90 nett and Er Lou Laksa Mee Hoon (small) - MYR 13.90 nett. This Er Lou Laksa is supposed to be Sarawak Laksa and they served the broth and the laksa paste separately.

My order: Er Lou Laksa Thin Noodles mixed with mee hoon (small) - MYR 13.90 nett. Top up MYR 1.50 nett to add any drink from the beverage menu so I chose Cucumber Lime Juice - normal price is MYR 7.90 nett.

I poured all the broth into the bowl but did not use any of the paste and I finished all the whole bowl but not the broth as I feel that it is on the salty side so not that good to drink all the broth. I like this Sarawak laksa, flavourful and tasty.

Cucumber Lime Juice (cold) at a add-on price of MYR 1.50 nett when a main dish is ordered. The normal price is MYR 7.90 nett so it is a good lunch promotion. I asked for no sugar (to omit the sugar) but it is still a bit on the sweet side since there is a preserved plum (suin mui) inside this very refreshing drink.

Total price for 3 pax is MYR 50.80 nett since both my friends top up MYR 1.50 nett each for drinks too.

Instagrammable interior.

More traditional decor.

Er Lou just opened recently and is located above Omulab on the same row as Kanna Curry House, Section 17, PJ.

I tried my friend's smoked duck thin noodles and found that the gravy has the fragrance of lard so for those who like the taste of lard, this is a delicious bowl of noodles.

I don't dare to try the cheese noodles because I do not know what the base broth is like before adding cheese to it.

I only notice the malicai fried noodles when I am writing this post. I would have ordered fried noodles malicai or fried mee hoon malicai if I have noticed it that day. If my friends eat here again, I would order the malicai noodles.

Chai Kueh sounds tasty too.

Cucumber Lime Juice is the highest priced drink here.

These desserts seem like western style desserts but I would be too full after eating the noodles to eat any desserts here.


  1. I love smoked duck! The cucumber lime juice drink looks so gteen.

    1. The green colour of the drink is totally naturally from the skin of the cucumber.

  2. I will feel geli if there is cheese in my food such as cheese baked rice.

  3. The Sarawak laksa looks good. Very generous with the toppings.

    1. yes, the toppings sure look nice. Guess that is why they don't put in the broth so that the toppings can be seen clearer.

  4. Both types of noodles look delicious. Making me hungry.

  5. The duck noodle and laksa looked nice and appetizing to me.

  6. But what is malicai? Good variety of not-easy-to-find noodles.
