I’ve been wanting to give this restaurant a try ever since I saw their extra large Curry Mee, on social media. Apparently, besides the usual sizes and options, they also serve XL size ones (which they refer to as Volcano Curry Mee) that is good enough to feed 2,3 people. Reviews online were a good mix of positives mostly, some negatives. I am all up for some yummy Curry Mee and so, I headed to Little Jungle for late lunch.
The restaurant occupies a corner lot, within a row of shops surrounded by a neighborhood, houses. Parking was rather difficult. It seemed like everyone parked everywhere. Literally every nook and corner, there is a car parked. Double parked vehicles is a normal sighting. I had to go around the block a few times before I came across an empty spot right outside the restaurant.
Ho Liao Curry Mee, RM 11.90 + Rendang Chicken Blue Rice, RM 13.90 + Guang Xi Tofu Puffs, RM 7.50
We ordered 3 dishes, the first being the Curry Mee. There were several options on offer here and we went with the Ho Liao Curry Mee. It was delicious. I liked the curry, it was thick and flavorful. I certainly enjoyed slurping it all up by itself. It included a good portion of noodles with siu yuk, cockles, fuchuk, long beans, brinjal. As I had the whole dish all to myself, it definitely is a filling dish. Yum!
This was essentialy a Nasi Lemak with Blue Pea rice. It was a pretty good dish. It included the usual items in a Nasi Lemak and Chicken Rendang. I liked the meat, the rendang sauce was flavorful. The Nasi Lemak sambal though, would have been great if it had a little extra heat in it. Other than that, it was a pretty good dish.
The GuangXi Tofu Puffs was a side dish my friend and I ordered. I didn’t know what it was and what it should taste like. When it arrived at my table, what I saw was pieces of weird colored thing with crispy brown strands. I decided to give it a go anyways and I loved it. The inner part had a soft, fishball texture while the outer part was crispy. Biting into it was a mix of textures – soft, crunchy, dense, crispy and overall, it tasted like something I’d be able to find at a yong tau foo restaurant. I liked it.
All in all, I enjoyed the food here. Would I head back here though? I would. I liked the Curry Mee especially and wouldn’t mind heading back here for another go at it.
