Kongfu Ramen

We had heard about the Seri Selera Kampung Air seafood court and decided that we should try it out, but when we got there we felt that it was too crowded for our liking. The vendors were also rather pushy and I got the feeling that they were more concerned about quantity than quality. The setting felt more like a classic tourist trap, with loud vendors yelling out their sale pitch to lesser informed tourists. Noisy, crowded and not that great prices made us change our minds. I have no doubt that the quality of the food was ok, but it was not the setting prefered by us.

Not feeling up to the task of seeking out another seafood restaurant we decided to go with anything nearby that looked good. Just across the street we saw this guy hand pulling some noodles, and if you are like me and like noodles, there is nothing that can stop you from ordering a bowl or plate of freshly made noodles.

Kongfu Ramen serves noodles in soup form or dry, topped with some kind of woked meat or vegetable. I chose the dry version, topped with woked beef and red onion. The sauce in the wok was not that spicy, but it had a hint of mustardy flavours that I could not really identify the base of. Anyhow, the noodles were great with an al dente texture and the beef was really tender and juicy. All in all, it was an excellent meal and we were glad that we found this restaurant. We actually ended up going back a few days later
