Beef Noodles & Curry Laksa @ Jalan Brunei, Pudu

I'm still exploring Pudu as the place is huge and peppered with so many food stalls. This part is off Jalan Pudu at the turn off where the Caltex petrol station is and pretty near the
wantan noodles. Underneath this huge tree, there are three stalls which serve curry laksa, chicken with noodle soup, beef noodles and kampung chicken rice. There is also a drinks stall which serves the patrons of the three stalls.

I ordered a small beef noodles (RM4) - dry style as I liked the look of the noodles. I love the noodles that came tossed with a little minced meat and fried garlic on top. Very crunchy and so nice especially when you add a bit of soup to loosen up the noodles.

The beef soup which accompanies the noodles had an assortment of beef balls, tripe, beef slices and preserved vegetables (ham choy in Chinese). The soup is unlike the other beef noodle places which is usually clear colour but this was pretty tasty too.

The other stall serves curry laksa and chicken with noodle soup. We tried the curry laksa which everyone was eating and it was pretty good. The curry sauce is quite thick and not too spicy. For added spice, you can add their sambal. You have a choice between boneless shredded chicken or chopped chicken which the stall owner will chop for you on the spot. The two ladies who run this stall seem to be having a whale of a time and once when things were not too busy, I even caught one of them singing away.

Another must have at the stall which I observed everyone having is their chicken feet curry. This wasn't my favourite as I prefer the Indian kind as they cut up the feet in smaller parts and somehow theirs is more tender. The chicken feet was also difficult to eat and quite fat. Besides these two stalls, there is also a chicken rice stall which we did not try out.

(If coming from Pudu Jail, take the first traffic light and turn left at the Caltex petrol station. Drive down the road and you will see the tree and stalls on the left hand side. Parking is found around the area but can be difficult during lunchtime.)

The Laksa looks yummy. I like tow foo pok soaked in the curry broth. It is one of my favorite food, besides Malay nasi campur. Has anyone tried the laksas from different states in One Utama Plaza. Which one is the best? The beef balls looks springy. Must be good. I like the dim sum chicken feet where it is deep fried and slow cooked with 5 spice.

tummythoz - I think so? Give it a try as they are open in the morning till lunch time. Best to go at 11am to 12am for lunch time as one of them opens late morning.

boo_licious - I don't know the name of the restaurant since I have been to the mall once. I remembered seeing pictures of laksas from different states. I didn't get a chance to try it since I had a full lunch earlier.
