Lala Noodles at Lai Foong Restaurant Jalan Tun HS Lee
We always visit Lai Foong Restaurant at Jalan Tun HS Lee for their beef noodle and for so many years we didn’t notice that a stall in the restaurant have been selling lala noodles for 10 years. Lala (clam) noodles is not something common that you can find in any restaurants. We don’t recall any restaurants selling lala noodles in Klang Valley.
Today, our good friend Mike Wes brought us to revisit Lai Foong Restaurant for the lala noodles. The stall starts at 10 am and ends around 8pm daily. If you visit the stall early, you can see the staffs are busy opening and cleaning the lala.
We ordered a bowl of lala noodles and it is priced at RM 10 flat. The lady boss told us that they sourced their lala from the market daily so it is fresh.
Since we were early, we managed to get our bowl of lala noodles fast. They recommended ‘mee hoon’ or rice vermicelli to go along with the lala. They will cook the broth as per order so the bowl of lala noodles comes with hot broth.
We read many good reviews on this stall from the word of mouth and to be frank sometimes we are sceptical whether the food is good or not.
From the first impression, the lala noodles comes with generous amount of lala. The first taste of the broth was pretty good. You can smell the fragrance of the Chinese wine as you take the first sip of the broth. The broth is flavourful with the natural taste of the lala and also the Chinese wine. Within minutes, the rice vermicelli will absorb the broth and each and every bite is immense with flavour.
We are not a big fan of soup noodle but this is really good. You can actually try and taste this and comment your feedback.
Is it worth RM 10 for a bowl of lala noodles? In our opinion, it is worth it since it is strategically located in the city and lala is not cheap nowadays. Food is not cheap anyways and you probably pay 50% more if you dine in shopping mall for an ordinary bowl of noodles or pasta.
We highly recommend this lala noodle stall in Lai Foong Restaurant. You won’t regret visiting this place but it will be packed during peak hours.
You can park at Central Market and take a brisk walk to Lai Foong Restaurant. Remember, they have the famous beef noodles in this restaurant and the other food stalls won’t disappoint you either.
