Food Review - Restoran Hing Ang (Curry/Pan Noodles)

Restoran Hing Ang (Jalan Thambypillai)
FoodCurry/Pan Noodles
LocationBrickfields, near YMCA

Getting thereThis is a stall located within a Chinese Coffee Shop right opposite the Chinese Temple – Sam Kow Tong Temple.

It is also a few steps away from the Brickfields Monorail Station. (or a stone’s throw away from YMCA)
ParkingParking here can be a breeze or a trying experience depending on your luck. Altho’ there are parking bays along the entire length of the street, they are either always full and even double-parked.
ServiceThe service is prompt and hassle-free but you may need to wait up to 10 minutes during peak hours.
AmbienceThis is an old shop located in one of the older and more well-known areas of KL – Brickfields. It’s quite well-lit but ventilation can be quite bad on a hot & humid day. Altho’ this place is generally known to be a residential area for the Indian Community, there are lots of non-Indians who frequent this shop. In fact, judging from the language and accent used, the ‘waitresses’ who take your drink orders may be from Mainland China.
TasteThe curry is thick, rich and aromatic. Personally, I love thick curries more than the more watery variety (which also usually contains santan or coconut milk).
The dry curry noodles come with crunchy Jue Pei (pork skin), minced pork, Tau Pok (Fried Tofu pockets), Fu Jok (Bean Curd Skin), curry chicken and long beans. While the Pan Mee in curry sauce is the standard Pan Mee with a generous scoop of the aforementioned thick curry at the side.
PresentationFood is served on plastic-ware. Unfortunate, but at least the plastic-ware is still fairly new.
VarietyOther than Curry Noodles (wet & dry) and Pan Mee, the stall also prepares Kuay Teow Soup (flat noodles in clear soup) aka Kuay Teow T'ng among the North Malaysians
Value for MoneyAt under RM5/bowl, this is pretty standard pricing but what keeps me coming back is the taste and the generous doling out of ingredients.

OverallGood curry indulgence to satisfy the pangs. Tasty and filling. Go try it!
