Menu and Sets
Chuen Wan Kopitiam Signature Noodle
Without thinking too much with their menu, I straight ordered their Signature Noodle at RM5.50. They were using Hakka Noodle (flat type wan ton noodle) as base, together with choy sum, red char siu (barbecue pork), chicken slices, fried wanton and topped with curry broth. The waiter recommended to top-up for roast pork for additional RM2.00.
Before I forget, take note on the small portion of their sambal (top right of the photo above) it tasted really delicious. I mean it’s not normal chili sauce, but mixture of sweet and spicy sambal which totally surprised me (I’m kinda regret for missing out the photo on this additional sambal).
The noodle was chewy, no taste of Kan Sui (alkaline/ lye water) which is good news.
The curry broth was really thick and not overly spicy which blend well with the rest of ingredients which overall tasted sweet and spicy. The red char siu slices brings some sweetness. The fried wanton was crunchy despite the small size, but it does affect the overall texture of this signature noodle.
However the roast pork was way too fatty for my preference, almost 50% were fat.
The Polo Bun
The original Polo Bun served with slices of butter, I would prefer to have the inside toasted longer to have the melted butter.
The polo bun’s crust was crunchy while it’s soft with melted butter on the inside. Nice texture albeit the small size. But worth it if you’re ordering 2 pieces.
