Shanghai Seafood Noodle House @ Subang Permai, USJ1May 12, 2008 | 4,221 views
The shop regrettably, has NO signboard, but situated right beside Restoran Mun Fong, (which serves amazing Thai dishes, will get to that later) at Taman Subang Permai in USJ1, an area which also houses Giant, Mydin, and Courts Mammoth. My relatives fondly recognize the uncle as “Ah Pek”, who had been serving his delicious seafood noodles for years at a corner coffee shop around the same area. He moved to this new shop only recently.
We were given a choice of Shanghai noodle, or Beijing noodle. There are a few other options I forgot. Helpless memory. I suspect the Shanghai noodle was fried before being cooked in the addictive broth, infused with the natural sweetness of the seafood ingredients. The uncle proudly proclaims that NO MSG was added to enhance the flavour, but ONLY the freshest ingredients are chosen, in order to boil the yummy soup. Delicious.
Some of us chose the Shanghai noodles, while others opted for its Beijing counterpart. The ingredients added are basically the same; various fishcakes, clams, yong tau foo, vegetables etc. The Shanghai noodle offers a more springy texture, heavier egg flavour (resembling yee mee), and definitely more savoury than the Beijing version. But the Beijing noodle in contrast, resembled “pan mee”-type of noodle, and looked and tasted healthier.
Do not let the unpretentious bowl of noodle fool you. The portion is considered quite huge, and substantially filling. Noticed that the uncle does serve some other dishes, such as scallops (!!), prawns, and fish, as accompaniment, to appease the seafood lovers in us.
Location : 33, Jalan USJ 1/20, Taman Subang Permai, USJ1. Not sure the specific directions, but if you know where Giant hypermarket, Mydin, and Courts Mammoth are in Subang Jaya, you will come across rows of shops on your right, right after passing by Mydin & Courts. Turn right once you come across Shell station on your right. The shop is beside Restoran Mun Fong, which is a corner shoplot facing the back.
