Loh Mee @ Restoran Sun Ho, Taman OUG

While I'm not a big fan of Loh Mee, much has been heard from colleagues who frequent Restoran Sun Ho in Taman OUG for a stall that serves this noodle dish immersed in dark gravy.

So far, I've been quite unsuccessful in quests to lunch at this place. Once due to its rest day and the second time due to time constraint. But as they say, third time's a charm. And I had the love in tow. So the love is a lucky charm!

A sign was hung above the stall to assure customers that the noodles were free from alkaline water. Awesome. I love how the noodles were served soon after the orders were placed. Why? Because I just wanna eat and run coz the shop was so hottt! Haha.

The stall owners were pretty affable. They even came over to inspect my photos and offer their 2 cents worth of comments after they spied me snapping away upon receiving my orders.

For RM 4.50, you get a huge bowl of Loh Mee with two medium-largish prawns, vegetable, egg and a generous amount of silken pork strips. Definitely a steal for the price.

I think what made this Loh Mee stood out from the others was its flavorful soup base. It was distinctively prawnish. At times, the prawn essence in the soup could get slightly overpowering. But that's ok as it is easily remedied by the vinegar provided. It brings the noodles to an all new dimension, if you like the tang, that is. I liked both versions, with or without vinegar. Heh.

The love didn't like the texture of the noodles (matter of preference) while I find it all right, but proclaimed he could lap up the soup easily. And he did just that. Mmmhmm... delish-ness.

All these trays of eggs belongs to the Loh Mee stall. Notice the jugs beside them? Those are the coffee shop's signature tea and coffee.

If you like your coffee strong, this is the perfect place to head to. I know of a colleague who raves about it because she's the one who directed me to this shop. Oh my, you should hear how she describes it. Hilarious. Apart from that, I find their Teh-C pretty good as well.
