Fried Noodles @ Man Sook aka Slow Uncle, Tengkat Tong Shin, Kuala Lumpur



Craving for noodles in the middle of the town is always a bad idea, especially when I'm not down town most of the time. I've been thinking of these fried noodles for quite some time, ever since we first ate here for a food crawl. Although the other noodles - Fried Hokkien noodles just struck me as average, I really loved the unusual Fried Meen Seen - tiny thin strands of vermicelli.



Took me a total of 3 times before I finally got to taste the dish - because everytime I went down town, it was either raining or not the right day. I finally struck lucky, one Thursday night. Pure luck, as the moment I sat down, I could feel a slight drizzle starting up. Usually Man Sook or Slow Uncle takes his time, but I guess with the threat of rain, he fried up the noodles in record time (less than half and hour) and I got to enjoy my crunchy noodles (abt RM6 for bliss). Tasted just as good as I remembered, and well worth the effort.

Hey, Cavin from Singapore.
May i ask if this place is in KL, near to Royal Bintang hotel? Thanks!

boo_licious said...

Joe - slow uncle mah...

Simon Seow - yup, he is as he takes his own sweet time.

the gluttonous animalia - wow, what a name. This place is parallel to Jalan Bukit Bintang, where Royal Bintang Hotel is located. Just cross the road, walk down and take the second right turn, where Tengkat Tung Shin (parallel to Jalan Alor). Walk further down the road and you will see this fried noodles place at the first alleyway. Hope that helps.
