I came across several postings on social media over the past few months in regards to this particular stall. Words like ‘hidden gem’ were commonly used. Okaylah, it is about time I go pay it a visit.
Uncle Keong Noodle Stall has been around since 1986 and is located by the roadside, facing a low cost flat. Waze will lead you right to it. Parking was easy as everyone parks by the roadside. The stall is surrounded by greens and on a hot day, it helps keep the heat away. For an eatery that is tucked in a quiet corner, away from from the main road and its usual hustle and bustle, many people seem to know of its existence. Customers kept coming.
In case the menu isn’t clear, they mainly serve 6 dishes – Prawn Mee, Yi Mein, Curry Laksa Mee, Wonton Noodle Soup, Dry Wonton Noodle and Dry Wonton Noodle with Chicken Feet. Pricing for all 6 dishes are the same: Small, RM 7. Medium, RM 7.50. Big, RM 8. In addition to that, they also have a selection of Yong Tau Foo as side dishes.
Curry Laksa Noodle (Medium), RM 7.50 + Dry Wonton Noodle (Medium) , RM 7.50
Here, the dishes serve are simple yet tasty. It actually transports me back to a time during my kiddy years where food was a lot more simple and straighforward. No fancy taste and artificial flavorings. I suppose it makes sense why people who know of this stall considers it a hidden gem.
The Medium size dish here resembles a Small size elsewhere. So, if you want something filling, perhaps go for the Large size. The Curry Laksa was tasty. The gravy was a tad more watery than what I’d like but it was tasty, flavorful. I requested for a mix of yellow mee + mee hoon, which was what I received. Unfortunately, by the time I arrived at 1 pm, chicken strips were sold out, so my choice of meat were 3, 4 pieces of thin pork strips instead. Honestly, the the strips were hardly enough 🙄. Luckily, there were 3 soft tauhu too. That helped. I noticed a number of tables also adding on several pieces of fried side dishes – fried dumplings, fuchuk and etc. If you guys need more meat in your noodles, adding on some of these items might help.
The Dry Wonton Noodles were simple yet tasty too. I liked the springyness of the mee. Light and bouncy it was. Together with 5,6 thin strip of pork, made up a nice plate of noodles. Keep in mind that there is no sweet, succulent BBQ pork meat here kay. The key word here is SIMPLE and that is what you’d get.
I would not mind a revisit in the near future. The Prawn Mee look delicious, I may give that a try next time.
