There’s nothing like a quintessential Chinese breakfast to start the day – that means dimsum and noodles! You can get both at Soon Hing Duck-licious & Dim Sum Restaurant in SS2, Petaling Jaya. The Moomins and I were in the area after a doctor’s appointment, and we decided to dine in.
While quarantine restrictions were lifted last month, many people are understandably cautious – I think this is the first time we’ve dined in at a restaurant since February.
The restaurant has spaced its seating accordingly, and patrons have to check-in via QR code and get their temperatures scanned before entering the premises.
Moomins wanted to have the Ipoh-style Mushroom Cheong Fun. Unfortunately, we were too early and they weren’t serving it yet, so we got wantan mee (egg noodles) (RM7.50), which is also the restaurant’s speciality. You can choose to have it dry (pictured) or in a soup, and opt for various roasties to go along with the noodles (siew yuk, charsiew, roast chicken, roast duck, or dumplings).
I got mine with roast duck. The meat was nice and tender, albeit a little lean (I think what makes duck tasty is the fatty layer under the skin!). As for the noodles, they were al dente and the soy sauce flavouring was just right (not too salty). The Moomins said she didn’t like it though (?) Different preferences, I guess.
Moomin’s siew yuk (crispy roast pork). Good flavour and great marbling.
As a shared snack, deep-fried shrimp roll. It had more fish meat in it than shrimp, but the skin was nice and crispy, and the roll was not too greasy.
Aside from wantan mee, the restaurant also serves other dishes, such as Fuzhou fishball noodles, pork noodles, curry mee, rice to go with your roasties, and a variety of dim sum. A good place to satisfy your cravings if you want both noodles and dim sum under one roof!
