[Non-halal] Looking for the best pork noodles in PJ?
Our favourite chee yuk fun (pork noodles in Cantonese) can be found at Restoran Siong Pin in SS3, Petaling Jaya in Selangor.
While not particularly famous (which we like), this stall has a steady stream of loyal customers who come here to enjoy the bowls of porky goodness.
In fact, Max used to eat here every weekend when he lived in the area.
While we now stay slightly further away from SS3 – we do return occasionally to eat the chee yuk fun here.
Our other favourite stalls in the SS3 area include the fried rice and yong tau foo at Hup Soon Restaurant (which serves good western food at night) as well as our favourite chicken rice at Restoran New Pom Pom.
The Jawa mee goreng stall here at Siong Pin is also pretty well-known.
Best pork noodles in PJ
When you mention famous pork noodles at SS3, the stall at Restoran Kean Fatt (located five minutes-drive away at the Taman Megah LRT station) immediately comes to mind.
However, we actually prefer this chee yuk fun to Kean Fatt’s.
Three key reasons:
- We actually like to taste the natural sweetness of pork essence in our broth. We find Kean Fatt’s broth to be slightly heavy on the soy sauce flavour.
- It usually takes 30 minutes to get your bowl of pork noodles after ordering at Kean Fatt. The average waiting time at Siong Pin is 10-15 mins.
- There is usually parking space near Siong Pin vs. Kean Fatt.
Sweet broth, porky goodness
A primer – we like our pork noodles broth to be natural-tasting and light in colour. We never like the ones which are darker in colour – which usually means too much soy sauce is added.
And this pork noodle at Siong Pin ticks all the right boxes.
The soup has a natural taste with sweetness from the pork bones, but never too porky. We also find that it has a good balance of natural sweetness and savoury flavours.
The broth is further enhanced with crispy pork lard croutons – which provides some crunchy texture and fat without making the soup too oily.
Add egg, please
The chee yuk fun here is best enjoyed with an added egg. We find that the egg’s richness blends well with the broth to provide added sweetness and creaminess.
Best of all, the egg is usually added at the last stage of cooking – so it is entirely up to you on how you want your eggs cooked. If you like your egg to be well-cooked, just allow it to continue cooking within the steaming hot bowl of soup.
Max likes his yolk to be a bit runny – which is best enjoyed with a spoonful of noodles, pork and some soy sauce-soaked bird’s eye chillies.
Ingredients are well-cooked
While not the most generous in town, we find the portion of the pork ingredients here to be adequate.
We like how the small minced meat patties are seasoned (not too salty, good texture) and the liver slices are cooked just nice (not too hard or rubbery).
A bowl usually comes with minced meat patties, liver, intestines, pork balls and sliced pork.
The noodles are also not too hard or soft.
We’ve checked out a lot of pork noodles in KL/PJ, and Siong Pin still comes out on top.
We find the broth to be perfectly balanced and not too heavy on soy sauce. Each bowl is cooked individually to ensure freshness and consistency of taste.
According to a friend, this stall used to operate in Subang Jaya before it moved here some 20 years ago.
Note that the stall is only open for breakfast and lunch from 7am onwards, and usually sells out by 2pm.
