Signature Pork Noodles @ Harbour Steamboat, Bandar Puteri Puchong

Harbour Steamboat in Bandar Puteri Puchong is known for its hearty, belly warming hotpot dishes, which are available for dinner. It’s not common to eat hotpot during the day though, so the restaurant has affordable rice and noodle dishes for the lunch crowd – and they serve some pretty darn good pork noodles.

The restaurant is cosy and air conditioned, and has Japanese touches, with rows of Japanese sake bottles lining the walls. This is because the owners of Harbour Steamboat also run a Japanese yakitori place upstairs, called Minato Yakitori. (Also one of the best places in Puchong to get Japanese-style skewers!)

The star for me is the signature pork noodles (RM14.90), which is what I order every time without fail. The portion is large and will easily satisfy big eaters. If you’re a small eater, you can even share the bowl between two people. Choose from a choice of different noodles such as kuey teow, mee, beehoon and meesua (my preferred choice).

The noodles are soft and silky, but the winner is the soup. Chock full of ingredients, you get generous portions of pork belly slices, pork mushroom balls, offal (intestines, kidney, liver), tender minced pork, squid and shrimp, all swimming in a cloudy broth that is bursting with flavour. To top it all off: a smattering of deep fried pork lard, which really adds extra flavour to the soup.

Best Pork Noodles in Puchong? @ Harbour Steamboat Restaurant, Bandar Puteri Puchong

*I know I said I’d be doing the 30 Day Writing Challenge for NaNoWriMo, but I’m faltering … and this is like what, the 6th day? :’D I was pretty psyched to do it initially, but my part-time boss gave me some assignments to do and now it seems like I won’t have enough hours in a day to complete everything lol. 

Nevertheless, here’s what I’m going to do (or at least try to, ha) – post as many Challenge posts as I can, interspersed with regular entries – so that I’ll still be posting something everyday. Desperate times call for desperate measures!  

 

A pork noodle place by day, steamboat resto by night, Harbour Steamboat probably has one of the best pork noodles in Puchong – in my opinion, at least! While it’s a bit on the pricey side, the signature bowl comes chock full of ingredients, in a generous portion.

The soup comes with a mix of offal, tender pork slices and seafood such as shrimp and squid, topped with fried pieces of lard for an extra fragrant aroma. Diners can opt between several types of noodles, but my favourite is mee xian, which is at type of rice noodle with a soft, almost mushy texture.

The star of the dish is definitely the soup, which is clear and sweet, flavourful and packed with porky goodness.

If you’re a small eater, one bowl can even be shared between two persons.

They definitely aren’t stingy on ingredients. The shrimp was huge! And fresh as well. Although the price is RM14++, I think it’s quite worth it. The dining area is air conditioned and comfortable.

Review: Universal Noodles @ Citta Mall, Ara Damansara

Hey guys!

This will be a short post to talk about a place I had lunch recently, after a work meeting at Citta Mall in Ara Damansara. It’s called Universal Noodles, and they specialise in pork noodles.

20181011_131731

Simple, clean interior. Service was pretty fast as well.

My bowl of pork noodles with all the trimmings – intestine, liver and slices. Portions were generous, and the soup was good, as you can really taste the porkiness. Must have been boiled for some time to get the maximum flavour. Prices are steep for a bowl of pork noodles but to be expected of its location. Not sure why there are so many unfavourable reviews on Google, I found my noodles to be decent.

For sharing we had braised pork intestines. These were chewy and yummy!

Lao Dou Pork Noodles, Bandar Puchong Jaya

Nothing spells comfort food more than a hot bowl of pork noodles on a rainy day (and we’ve been having a lot of those lately!). So braving the drizzle, the fam and I went to check out a new place called Lao Dou Pork Noodles at Bandar Puchong Jaya one evening. The name is quirky, since it’s a Chinese slang for ‘Old Father’.

20161224_195907-tile

They serve nothing but pork noodles. There’s the basic, but I opted for one with all the trimmings (RM12.90) – intestines, liver, kidney, patty, slices – to go along with my kueyteow (flat rice noodles – they also have yellow mee, lousheefun, mihun, etc).The innards/noodles were topped with deep fried bits of pork lard.Service was slow: even though the restaurant was fairly empty, we still had to wait for half an hour for the food, but I’m told this is because they make the food on a bowl to bowl basis instead of mass-cooking a big batch.

Good:

  • The soup tasted sweet (I’m guessing they boiled the stock for hours)
  • Noodles were nice and soft without being soggy.
  • Pork patties minced well, with hints of preserved vegetables for a savoury kick
  • Tender pork slices

Bad: 

Almost all the innard items, namely kidney, liver and intestines, had a strong gamey smell which was overpowering every time I took a bite.

All in all, an okay bowl of noodles, but it definitely could have been better if not for the innards. Maybe go for their basic bowl instead?

Bro’s ‘dry’ version which also has pork stuff in a soup, but the noodles are tossed in a sauce and served separately.
