Tips from friends are always appreciated by me especially for great food places or else searching for good food can be a tiresome task. Hence when a friend told me about this place at Jalan Mesui, I was keen to sample the pork noodles. She reckons it's much better than Kean Fatt's pork noodles as it does not have any MSG and a natural sweetness to the broth.
Located at Jalan Mesui, a small street at the heart of the city, this restaurant has no signboard except for a cloth banner but it's not hard to miss it. It's the only hawker stall along this road which houses a guesthouse, Palate Palette and No Black Tie. At one side of the restaurant, there's the vegetarian chap fan stall and a wantan mee stall while the pork noodles stall is on the other side. These pork noodles get a really good following that it's packed during lunchtime till they adopt a number serving system.
A lot of preparation goes into the ingredients of the noodles. The meat needs to be marinated in soy sauce and corn flour to smoothen it. There's a variety of ingredients - minced and sliced pork together with liver. Every time you order your noodles, it's cooked in a small metal pot over a huge fire. It just takes a few minutes with a pre-made broth.
Tastewise, the soup is clear and has a natural sweetness to it. It's not overly sweet like Kean Fatt's indicating additional chemical elements but this version is more subtle from the abundant ingredients. I can't remember how much was my bowl as I seem to have misplaced the prices but I remember them to be reasonable and the portions to be generous. I also liked how they gave you a nice portion of deep fried garlic to mix into the noodles for additional flavour.
