Just over 2 months old, Ru Di Fook is fast becoming the talk of town as the go to noodle bar if you fancy yourself some yummy Hong Kong inspired wan tan noodles. Another reason for garnering attention would be because of the eatery itself, in terms of how it presents itself. Almost all wan tan noodle shops I see and accustomed to comes in the form of hawker stalls, old school chinese restaurants and even what the locals would refer to as “kedai tepi jalan”, but not Ru Di Fook though. This noodle bar is a picture of elegance and artsy & crafty.
As soon as you enter, you are welcomed in with several ‘WELCOME’ greetings and genuine smiles. Then, a server is assigned to you and he assist you towards a table. Once seated, a menu is given and you can take your time looking at it to decide what tickles your tastebuds for the day.
Yuzu BBQ Pork Mee (F4), 16.80 ringgit & Hou Pak Dong Mee (F6), 17.90 ringgit
Decided to do combined 2 separate dishes into once review because the noodles used are the same, the difference is in terms of the type of pork that accompanied the dishes. In contrast to the usual medium to thick size of noodles we Malaysians are used to, the wan tan noodles offered at Ru Di Fook is thin. It definitely is a first for me, having the noodles in this size & I must say – I liked it.
F4 consisted of a bowl of wan tan noodles + half an egg + 6 – 7 slices of relatively thick BBQ pork meat + some green, with 3 wantons in soup. I do not really know how to explain it because all wan tan noodles taste almost the same but this was pretty darn good. The noodles were both soft and decently dry, not the kind that is too soaked in kechup, the pork BBQ slices gave out a sweetish spicy-ish feel while also being crunchy and the wan ton in soup was chewy as tasteful. While this was yummy, I found myself liking F6 just a tad more.
Why? Only because I loved the fried pork meat version more than the BBQ roasted version. The rest of the dish consisted of the same ingredients also in F4 but F6 had fried pork. Man, I swear, they tasted similar to those popcorn chicken that KFC used to sell. Flavors varied of course, but I loved it.
Would I head here again?
Of course. This noodles bar offers a variety of dishes and I cannot wait to come back for more.
