Last weekend me and Cumi decided to venture into the heart of Pudu to satisfy our appetite for red wine mee suah.
This red wine soup mee suah is not for the faint hearted. A strong, gingery, fermented, for want of a better word, wine-ish smell assaulted our noses… Cumi decided to try the other specialty instead (faint hearted la) , the Fu Chow fish balls noodles. Not so strong smelling, compared to the mee suah. We also tried the suei–kaw which turned out to be a solid ball of meat – no prawn… pretty filling and porky tasting.
CUMI: Mee suah isn’t my favourite noodle because its usually really mushy but the bowl i had was cooked just ‘aight‘. The noodle still retained its texture.
The red wine soup was pretty good for a person that really dislikes Chinese wine dishes. Its strong and sweet. It won’t be my everyday dish but i’ll order it if its my “i’d like a change of eating choice” day.
The ‘sui kau‘ dumpling were a disappointment. Not because of its huge stuffing of meat but the lack of a unique taste. Additionally, it wasn’t well made; the skin was falling apart.
Fuchow fishball + the complementing fishcakes was good and same goes with the flat rice noodles(hor fun). The cook managed to retain the noodles nice texture and their noodle supplier provided a good tasting product. For about RM4, its slightly high priced but with a lot of lacklustre fishball noodle soups around, this was good.
