The porkier or more concentrated the broth, the tastier yet unhealthier it is. At least that’s what I think. It does somewhat makes sense because a murky broth indicates the inclusion of pork bones and spare parts, cooked till the parts disintegrates into the broth.
Thick pork broths are what make up some of my favourite pork noodles which you can read about here, here and here. The pork noodles are at Sun Sea in Taman OUG is slightly different. Different because the soup is just moderately porky but sweet from the seafood.
Yes, Sun Sea’s version comes with prawns and squid slices, on top of the quintessential pork slivers, minced meat, innards and pork lard. Waiting time is decent here – 15 to 20 minutes tops. Order some popiah from the stall in front to munch on if you’re hungry; I like the seaweed version that comes with crispy tempura bits and coleslaw.
The noodles were pretty tasty. Not porky the way I like mine to be but the sweetness from the seafood makes up for it. If you’re not big on overly porky broths, you’ll like this one. There is also a dry option where the noodles are tossed in dark sauce and lard oil, and served with a bowl of pork broth with all the works.

Food: 6.5/10 (non halal)
Verdict: Pretty decent pork noodles and generous portions. Alternatively, you can try Hong Cha just a few doors away.
