Noodles @ Restoran 3U, Taman Taynton View, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur

As I have mentioned before, I always get incredibly lost in Cheras. It's like I generally know how to get there but I'll end up taking two or three rounds before I reach my destination. This particular place which WMW from
You Get What You Give Sometimes blogged about earlier was a fine example. Great directions from the highway with road signs but I still flubbed it at the end by taking a wrong turn. Luckily I could go through the same way again and managed to find it.

There's lots of soupy noodles here to satisfy and warm a tummy well especially with all the rainy days we have been recently experiencing. They have this delish looking prawn noodles with three huge prawns. Didn't get to try that but it looked tempting. I had their prawn wantan noodles (RM4.80) instead which didn't wow me probably because the prawn wantans weren't crunchy. I did like the soup broth which came with it as it was rich and very addictive. One spoonful is not enough and I ended up slurping almost three quarters of it down. The soup broth feels very home made and has relatively very little MSG in it.

Then there's the recommended Beef Mix Noodles (RM4.80) which was excellent. I had it with the Cintan Mee that is home made with fine strands that went so well with the rich beefy soup. My favourite bits of the mix was the beef slices - so tender they melted in my mouth.

Aside from the noodles, you can also ask for additional items like poached chicken (RM5). I didn't think much of it as it wasn't smooth enough.

When it comes to bean sprouts (RM2), I love them extra crunchy. These ones didn't pass the crunch test nor the fat and luscious test. I guess I should have stuck to the soup broth instead.

Do drop by this place to sample their noodles especially the delicious soup. It's relatively easy from the highway as there's signs leading you all the way. I understand that three friends opened this place hence the reference to 3U which means Sam You (in cantonese, three friends). You'll see them around the restaurant either helping out at the counter or taking orders.

I remember it was quite hard to find prawn wantan noodles in KL when I lived there 7 years ago. But definitely I'm a big fan of prawn wantan compared to regular ones.

The beef noodle looks great....and sounds lovely.... "melts in your mouth"... it must have been cooked well. I must try as beef noodle is my favourite noodle.

hey u gotta come back to this area, in Taynton View, and try supposedly, allegedly, best fishball noodles in town.

Its on the same street, but on a different block, further up the hill. You should be able to see one shop that sells fishball with lots of people.

boo_licious said...

bernsy - this is jin man rite? Yeah, I may make another trip there since I'm getting the hang of Cheras already!
