This famous, nameless pork noodles stall has been operating out of a house in PJ old town for the past ten years; just look for the 99 Speedmart convenience store and walk towards the back of the single-storey house next to it. There’s no sign whatsoever – much like a pork noodles speakeasy, if you will.
The soup here is clean tasting and clear, none of the usual gaminess that you’ll find at many pork noodle soups around. It’s light yet flavourful, thanks to the mix of pork and fish stocks. And the best part is, every order is cooked separately, comes with heaps of gem lettuce, and is finished with pork lard and fried garlic oil just before serving.
The stall, operated by a husband-and-wife team, is also famous for their homemade fish paste and huge dumplings (sui kow). The sui kows are plump, filled generously with pork and prawn mince, and studded with crunchy turnip, carrots and chives. Our recommendation? Ask for a bowl of noodles with all three ingredients: minced pork patty, fish paste and dumplings. And if you’re into innards, add on kidney and liver. Come before peak lunchtime and you could even get some yong tau foo as a side dish.
