Pork Noodles & Pan Mee ~ Restoran Kean Fatt, SS3 PJ

Looking for lunch options is the hardest and easiest task every day in the office. There's so many factors to consider - cuisine, distance from the office, comfort, variety of food in one place but when it comes to pork noodles, the decision is made faster than it takes to mobilize the office people to the restaurant.

Restoran Kean Fatt houses a pork noodle stall that happens to be the brother of the famous Ooi Noodle House pork noodles in Subang. 

The pork noodles is good though a lot of us still prefer the Subang version but really, beggars can't be choosers so we are here at least once a week or once every 2 weeks. A bowl of pork noodles here costs RM8, RM9 if you add on an egg. 

Overall, I like the pork patties more than the pork slices but there isn't a strong 'porky smell' so it's all good. One thing to note is that uncle's cooking can get a bit inconsistent with the flavor of the soup but that's nothing a dash of soy sauce can't fix.

If you're not a big fan of pork noodles, there's something else to try here. I have to first declare that I am no big fan of pan mee except  for this one. The noodles are kneaded by hand and you'll see the cook in action, flinging the freshly shaped dough straight into the hot water even though he's actually quite a distance from the boiling pot. It's as though he's showing off!

Chewy, thin noodles without an overly flour-y taste, there will be enough fried ikan bilis, pork, spinach in the bowl. No skimping of ingredients here. They serve a homemade sambal belacan that has quite the kick. This meal of pan mee will cause you to sweat but it'll be satisfaction guaranteed.
