After tasting the Wanton Mee at Pudu Chan Fatt Wantan Mee (CLOSED) and not liking it, I went back after reading about the Lion Head Meatballs and Chinese Sausage with Fried Egg on Kris' blog. I simply had to taste those two dishes.
Of course I had to make two visits to do that. I had the Lion Head Meatballs first and chose to have the noodles dry, forgetting that it being wantan mee, it would be tossed in that strange tasting sauce.
|See how stingy they are with the pickled chilies.|
I was very curious about the meatballs.
|The broth was awesome.|
Upon tasting, they reminded me of something I have eaten before. Very strong flavors with a hint of Chinese cooking wine. I was trying very hard to recall what it was and I reckon it was probably a dimsum item.
I'm afraid I wasn't a fan of these meatballs but I liked the soup and drank it to the last drop.
As for the wantan noodles, it was yay to the springy noodles but nay to the sauce. I do wish that the proprietor would change the sauce to the conventional one but then again, that would not make it Pudu Chan Fatt, would it?
On my next visit, this was what I had.
|The most beautiful fried egg I have ever seen.|
Is that fried egg gorgeous or what? I loved the way the Homemade Chinese Pork & Liver Sausage with Egg was plated. So pretty, don't you think?
I went with the dark rice and I agree with Kris that the sausages were scrumptious.
I couldn't resist doing the egg porn shot heh..heh...
This dish came with some chili sauce which tasted like those commercial chili boh and I left it untouched. Anyway, the dish is already so flavorful and delicious that the chili sauce was unnecessary.
On this visit and the previous ones, I saw the proprietor (recognized her from newspaper article) but she did not smile or make any attempt to say hi. I guess she is probably a reserved person. A bit of PR would be a nice touch but that's just my opinion.
Honestly, I thought that I would give the two dishes a try and not come back again but the sausages made such an impression on me that I might just come back for them.
