Pork Noodles @ SS15, Subang Jaya

My dad loves sending me random emails about funny quotes, quizzes and trivia questions. Just to play along, I did one test, which involved rating my 4 favourite animals. I chose Pig, Cow, Sheep and Dog. Usually, one would choose the animals they want as a pet. But I chose the animals I wanted to eat (with the exception of dog). I love pork, followed closely by beef. Since we’re talking about pork, here’s what I ate over the weekend — the SS15 pork noodles at Restaurant Pomander. I usually get my pork noodle fix from Kean Fatt in SS3, but rif felt adventurous and decided to drive to Subang instead. The noodles come in 3 sizes; small (RM4.50), large (RM5.50) and EXTRA large (RM6.50). You can opt to add an egg for RM0.50. rif and I did. Driving all the way to Subang was nothing, but having to wait 45mins for a bowl of noodles was a bit much. Each bowl of noodles is individually prepared, hence the long wait. If you’re so-hungry-until-you-want-to-chew-the-table, order the chee cheong fun (which isn’t good by the way) to pacify your stomach. Each time the helper carried a tray of noodles into the shop, I prayed and hoped it was mine. Alas, there was no point praying; I still got my noodles 45mins later. The noodles (you have a choice of kuay teow, yellow noodles and vermicelli) were delicious. Filled with minced pork, pork slices, liver slices, intestines and crispy pork lard, the broth had a sweet and flavourful porky taste. They must have boiled plenty of pork bones in the soup or added a lot of MSG, or both. Despite the slightly higher pricing, there was plenty of minced pork and lard. It was an incredibly satisfying meal.

Ambiance: 6/10 (air-conditioned)
Price: 6/10
Food: 7.5/10 (non-halal)
Verdict: A good bowl of pork noodles. Be prepared to wait.

    45 minutes girl! I salute you! All for a bowl of pork noodles! But you know what? I think I'd wait too! All in the name of good food, not to mention my love for pork noodles.

  5. minchow

    Ooh can order by phone ahead?? Brilliant idea fr Joe, I think I might just do that! Any wait for more than 20 mins brings on muscle spasms!

  7. KY

    they're brothers, no?

    the look of the stall's the same too, written "Penang pork noodle", which doesn't exactly exists in Penang. lol

  8. babe_kl

  9. TL

    looks good. But I guess need to be half full when ordering if need to wait so long (^_^;)

    BTW, the Pork Noodles at Hock Lim (http://bangsar-babe.blogspot.com/2009/06/char-siew-wantan-noodles-restaurant.html) used to be pretty good but I think the standard sudah drop but price naik…

    KY – Yeah…I was told that too. Ya hor…now that you mentioned it, there's no such pork noodles in Penang!

    Eric – You want to go everywhere! Plan first la. One by one!

    minchow – Hahaha…I didn't know can order ahead. I think I'll do that in future!

    iamthewitch – The things I'd do for a bowl of pork noodles. LOL

    J – Damn right!

    leo – Liddat then cannot enjoy good pork noodles wor… =_=

    Joe – But it's yummy! Maybe we should ask them for their contact number. Call them before going there. Kekeke…

    I have searched 45 mins for this illusive place, garmin gps took me to the right place but there is no pomander. It has changed name, it is now called “Ooi noodle house” they retain the yellow colour though.

    The standard answer from the boss when you order, “can you wait 45mins?”

    1. Bangsar Babe

      Thanks for the notification. Yeah, I hate that standard “wait 45 mins” answer. 🙁

    By the way, in Penang it is just called “koay teow t’ng” for pork noodle because the horfun comes default with pork

    Dear gal, The owner, Mr Ooi has terrible and snoblish attitude and mentality, precisely when a business turns well, people get crocky. Today we are living in 21 st century, what comes around goes around. RM 6.80 per bowl, with that kind of cleanliness, I would rather go to the sister shop in Sunway mentari, please don’t promote for them anymore, they don’t deserve your effort at all

    Will never ever go to this place again.
    We were told to wait an hour because many customer.
    Nevertheless we agree since we were not hungry.
    However after an hour wait we realise they were serving to ppl that came later then us. When we ask the serving lady and the owner.
    They reply us very rudely you either wait or u can go.
    We were so angry that we leave.. what kind of service is this.. the food is not free and there are plenty of nicer pork noodle that I eaten before..
    Bad service..
