Food Review - Pork Rib Noodles (Chun Heong Coffee Shop)

Pork Rib Noodles - Chun Heong Coffee Shop
28 Lorong Ara Kiri 2, Lucky Garden
Pork Rib Noodles (Lunch)
Bangsar - Lucky Garden

Getting there
It is a double shop-lot right in the middle of the shops (instead of at a corner) located prominently across from the Jalan Tempinis-Jalan Ara Kiri Roundabout.

This can be a hassle as the parking spots are usually all taken and even double parked. This however is you do not mind parking slightly further away and taking a short walk from either Bangsar Village or the housing areas surrounding the place.

Service is quick and fuss-free. The old lady is friendly and you she would enjoy recommending her menu to you if you are unsure of what to try.
Typical of any Chinese Coffee Shop, the noise levels are pretty up there but the place is considered fairly clean (considering the shop has been there foe some years) and brightly lit.

The pork ribs are served in a clear double-boiled Chinese herbal broth which has a very tempting aroma. I like mine with dry Wantan noodles. However, the more traditional noodles like mee, hor fun (or kuey teow), mee-hoon and even mee-suah (or “meen seen” in Cantonese) are also available. I tend to look for some form of chili paste with my food but they only provide chili-padi in soy sauce. I didn’t really use it because the meat in the soup provides enough savory taste.

The food is served in large decorated porcelain Chinese bowls (which is a very good thing not only presentation-wise but from the health perspective as well). If it’s the dry noodle variety, then the food will come in 2 bowls instead of one.

They also serve Duck & Chicken in herbal soup (all double-boiled) but I have not had a chance to try them as each time I visit, I always order the Pork Ribs (Yeah, it’s that good!).

Value for Money
Each serving comes with at least 4 big chunks of pork ribs complete with a generous portion of noodles.

Altho’ run only by a friendly elderly couple, their service (with a smile, put many other eateries to shame). Great food at great value with excellent service tucked somewhere in the heart of the city - Bangsar. Go try it, an excellent example of great stall food.
