Sang Nyuk Noodle 東風生肉麵

Apparently Sabah is very famous for their Sang Nyuk Noodle. They recently brought their trademark all the way to Klang Valley.

The interior is pretty much typical Malaysian coffeeshop, but is generally cleaner than those with various hawker stalls all  in one shop. 

We got two Groupon vouchers which is really confusing. The information is really messy because they did not split info for 2 pax and 4 pax.

The deal
Set for 2 people for RM16.90 instead of RM26.50
Set for 4 people for RM26.90 instead of RM43.10

Each group of 2 people gets
2x pork noodles, dry or soup (choose noodles): 
- Yang Cheng mee hoon (RM8.90 value) 
- Dong Guan mee hoon (RM8.90 value) 
- Traditional handmade mee (RM8.90 value) 
- Lou shu fun (RM7.90 value) 
- Hor fun (RM7.90 value) 
- Noodles only (RM3.90 value)
Side dishes: 
- Tendon meatball soup (RM6.90 value) (for set for 2 people only) 
- 1x Yam roll (RM3.90) (valid for 4 people option only)
2x Chinese tea (RM1.80 value)

Nevertheless, we still got what we ordered so it was fine. If it wasn't for the voucher I don't think I'll order the sides. A bowl of 4 tendon meat balls / jiang bao meat balls is priced at RM6.90 per bowl. It's really way too highly priced.. But those tendon meatballs are worth it - it's super juicy! Those jiang bao wasn't that great, it's quite dry inside.

As for the soup noodles, I personally did not really like it. The soup was thick, but not thick from the pork flavours but it's the thickness by adding corn flour.. Barely any pork flavours, and it was really salty too. What I dislike most is corn flour coating those sliced pork meat. Those meat are really, really starchy. In comparison I'd rather have those meatballs.

The dry noodles scored fairly higher but I was not particularly impressed either. I've ordered the traditional handmade noodles. It turns out to taste like wan tan mee's egg noodles. So just imagine having dry wan tan mee but the little bowl has no wan tans, just mixture of pork meat or intestines if you want it (I don't really fancy). 

Though, I would say the dry one is way better than the soup. However, if I'm not around the area I wouldn't go there just for it. I'm not saying it's bad, it's just very normal, not anything fantastic as said. They should really do something about it to compete with KL's Pork Noodle shops, they are not quite up to par yet despite being the famous one in Sabah... Sorry to say that...

The pork lard is very different. It tasted like pork lard, texture is rather soft like deep fried onions. I still prefer the normal pork lard over this non-crunchy version. Pork lard have to be crunchy to win my heart!
