I Miss Yu


This is me eating again. Even an errand to the bank  can give rise to an excuse to drop by somewhere to stuff my face. Walking past Yu Noodle House, I decided to revisit

Sometimes even though I may not be quite impressed, I do give a restaurant a second try.


I'm watching my carb intake (yeah, right), so I decided to go for the ala carte (no noodles) and I was in the mood for some siew kaw (dumplings). Actually these are not low carb on account of the skin which is made from flour. See? What low carb?


I added some yau mak (lettuce) as that was the only vegetable available to add on.

The siew kaw, I have had better but it was still decent enough. The broth however, tasted way better compared to my earlier visit. Very robust in flavors and rich with the taste of wine. 

It was so good that I made another visit. This time for the bursting meatballs.


This time, I added some sliced oink oink belly.


Even though the broth was already so well infused with wine, I wanted more. So I added a spoonful but was a bit clumsy and I think much more went into the soup. Hic! Yes, I did feel light headed and tipsy a little later. Very potent stuff, this.


 There is a condiment that I look forwards to here.


The sambal! I think it is awesome.


On both occasions, I had the cold Chinese tea. Very refreshing indeed.


I have a feeling the sliced belly is marinated as it is tasty and not bland like the one at my usual haunt.

You know what, I may switch camps since I am really enjoying the broth over here, provided if they are consistently good. Yu Noodle House, I may have  a thing for you.

  2. The skin of dumplings is so much lesser and thinner than noodles so you did still ate less flour (carb). I will go try this since I like that we can add more wine to the broth.

  3. I remembered you didn't like this place at first compared to Go Noodles but now may have a change of mind and prefer this one. I think it depends which soup base one likes better...the one in Go Noodles looks more "ching" and this one looks more cloudy and that's why it's probably more robust in flavour? I think the all-you-can-put wine is the no. 1 pull factor here :)

    1. Yes, I am liking this place better now Besides, they have siew kow and tom yam which Go Noodles does not. The free flow of wine is very attractive. At the other place, you have to buy a whole bottle.

  8. Seriously PH, I don't enjoy my food if it is not spicy. Kalau boleh, semua I nak bubuh lada tau tak kiralah even if it'll make the food lain macam jadinya.

    Not badlah you, walau tak berapa impressed with the first visit, masih lagi give it another try. Kalau I lah, dah siap-siap ban dari list.
