I Not Stupid, thanks to Pork Noodles at OUG

Having been strongly traumatized by my own ineptitude and missing my flight back to Penang this weekend to see Ollie, celebrate Mother's Day with the home crew and get my hometown food fixes, I had planned on getting my prawn mee fix at the famous stall in Taman Sri Sentosa but alas, did not make it out of bed in time.


You mean, you booked on the wrong flight route coming back to see me and realized only when you were checking in at the airport? And you're how OLD? Little Ollie gapes at the foolishness of the nitwit he's supposed to call Aunt.

Ho-hum.

I can't take the scrutiny any longer! Some other type of noodles will have to do, so I swing the car into OUG, park the car near the OUG wet market square and bundle out, sleep still in my eyes.
There are plenty of good eats around here, but I like the look of the Auntie who was serving up bowl after bowl of steaming noodles at Restoran Lucky.

Dry lou shu fun, slippery, cooked just right and finished with the nectar that is dark & light soy sauce and lard.


The accompanying storm in a blue plastic bowl arrived, murky liquid and flooded with minced meat, shredded pork meat, liver, one whole egg, vegetables and plenty of other unidentifiable wreckage from Auntie's fearless commandeering.

The broth is wonderfully sweet and concentrated on all flavours pork, instantly diffusing any self-doubt from this weekend's episode of ditz. The calm that follows the storm of this serving of Pork noodles (RM4.30) settles in. I forgive myself, and also decide that with the abundance of faith-restoring meals like this in KL, my Penang food cravings can wait a couple more weeks.


The stall is situated in Restoran Lucky, opposite the BHP station, for those seeking mercy in a bowl.

Awww, sorry to hear abt you missing the flight and I do love Ollie's expression. I've been itching to explore OUG again after I read Robyn's recent Time Out article. These noodles look very good and definitely a contender vs the other famous one nearby.

perfect description of that storm in a bowl. the sweetness of the ingredients can be tasted all the way from here ....

allie said...

yaya.. totally agree with J2Kfm, the sweetness can be tasted all the way from here :)

I've been to this place before. The pork noodles are really good. Used to have noodles there with my mum when I'm in KL. Makes me miss home all of a sudden.

Boo, yes I didn't think to check up on which is the famous stall here before I dropped by. I spied so many more stalls in this area that looked like they meant business, will definitely head back!

J2Kfm & Allie, ah yes... only such a storm could rival and appease my self-hatred that morning. I can still taste the sweetness now!

CK Lam, and at RM4.30, hardly anything to pay for such effective therapy!

Mimid3vils, where where? See I just went with my gut feel that morning; saw a huge pan mee stall nearby, an old school type wantan mee stall... so much to try, eeks!

Little Inbox, yes it was really good! I am hankering for some right now... after lunch at that!

Sean, no way! I could NOT work through the amount of cholesterol you do! Or I choose to be in denial anyway! My doctor would have a heart attack! :-P

550ml jar of faith said...

Raynebow, this is perhaps the easiest (and most delicious) way to forgive myself from the most ridiculous errors!

Ciki, so you completely understand how grim it was to have missed a chance to see him! And he's leaving the country again soon! Reminds me, better book my next flight ticket back quick. Correctly this time!

BBO, I love how you can eat lou shu fun with just the spoon, no need for fussy chopsticks, haha!

Lyrical Lemongrass, yes, I have to wait two more weeks to get my hands on those cheeks! I just can't wait!

Cariso, I suppose the home-cookedness did help to curb my Penang cravings!

Nomad Gourmand, I am hardly guide material, barely groping my way around here. But we can buta-buta explore together!

worldwindows said...

Forgetfulness is good esp. in forgiving and forgeting. Remedial measures - pg's brain if you don't mind the cholesterol. Seriously the Pork noodles look good.

FoOd PaRaDiSe said...

wow.... the foods look good. The soup base look similar to King Street KTT. ^-^

Nic (KHKL) said...

yeah, a good bowl of pork noodles can transform the crappiest day into a carefree public holiday liddat. ok, that's quite an exaggeration. but yeah, i think i get my drift..hehe

make it up to them by buying them a good meal! ;D

550ml jar of faith said...

Worldwindows, I've heard wonderful praises heaped on the therapeutic qualities of pig's brain. My heart says yes, but my cholesterol meter is telling me to not even think it!

Food Paradise, seriously? I keep refraining from KTT in Penang because I've not had a single bowl that tasted as "kiat" as the pork noodles in KL. King St, ok, will check it out! Thanks!

Nic, no exaggeration at all. Wonderful how a simple bowl of noodles can cause such a huge transformation innit? And yes I fully intend to really go OTT when I see them next weekend!

It was with such apprehension & fear that your new mis-love mal-interest has so tramatised you deeply but alas...he is only a still growing little kid, thank God you happily ended up in a lucky restaurant with good healthy food

kampungboycitygal said...
