Good Pick Noodles@Damansara Uptown


It looks like a new noodle shop has opened in Damansara Uptown. I had no idea until a restaurant staff greeted me outside the shop when I passed by. Since I had already had lunch, I told him I would come back another day.

Many days passed and I still did not have the opportunity to visit until recently.



I was there almost 3:00 pm for a late lunch. The young man who greeted me many days ago was there to assist me on the menu.


He was so enthusiastic that I can't help wondering if he was the owner/joint owner or their star employee.


The order chit is laminated in plastic, so what you do is take a marker pen (it's inside the container where they store cutleries) and tick what you want.


That way, the server can rub off the markings after the order is taken and the restaurant saves paper. Good, eh? 


Since there were so many things on the menu, I decided to go for the Good Pick Set which comes with (1) Chinese lettuce (2) Beef Brisket (3) Pig Intestine (4) Pork Skin (5) Radish (6) Curry Fish Ball (7) Marinated Egg (8) Taiwan Meat Ball. You get to choose the type of noodle and soup base that you prefer.

I chose thin egg noodles and clear soup.

There you go, my super loaded bowl of noodles.


Aiyah... half an egg only. Bah! hee..hee...


I liked the thin egg noodles, something like wanton noodles. 


There were two big chunks of beef brisket, they were almost tender, maybe needed a bit more braising.


There were also two big pieces of curry pig skin. I did not like the curry flavor. I thought it would be nicer if the pork skin was braised in soya sauce.

Inside the soup were two big pieces of radish which were nice and tender. The soup had a strong beefy aroma and I thought that it was a little overpowering even for a beef lover like me.


I loved their chili condiment. It was delicious.


I did not like the iced Chinese tea as it had strong earthy flavor, much like pu-er tea which is not my favorite.

I returned a week later and had the same thing. Somehow this time it tasted even better.



The beef brisket was very tender and the soup was beefy and yet pleasant. 



For drinks I ordered the iced coffee. You can choose (i) less ice (ii) less sugar (iii) no sugar (iv) black (coffee).



Yikes! Forgot to tick "black" coffee but I found this coffee rather good. Next time remember to tick "less ice" and "black" hee...hee...



I was so carried away that I accidentally "kidnapped" the spoon from the condiment container. Major faux pas tsk! tsk! 

When the server was clearing the table, I noticed her taking the spoon and attempting to wipe it with a tissue. Oh no! So I approached her (hoping to tell her, please don't put the spoon back! Get a clean one) and apologized for taking the spoon out but she gave me a blank look and did not seem to understand me.

I hope she did not put the spoon back into the condiment container. Touch wood! But I can assure you that the spoon was only used to spoon the chili onto my food without any contact.



This Good Pick Set at RM21.90 saves you some money since the 5 extra ingredients would have cost RM28.90. It is very loaded and can be shared by two small eaters. In fact the cashier asked me if I finished my food since it might be "too big for a lady". Well, well. This lady got big stomach lah.


I will come back for sure and next time, I will customize my noodles and try other soup flavors. Or even the Big Rice Bowl.

  1. Looks good! Not cheap though. I love that idea, to laminate the order chit and use again and again. One place here, they gave pencils...and when the staff is free, they sit down to erase. So kesian!!! LOL!!!

    1. There could be some truth in feng shui. This part is still better than the row along The Ship where the energy level is really low. Hotcakes had a shortlived stint there :(

  3. The way this works look like HK Cart Noodle but the ingredients here look more generous. Beef, oink intestine and radish together only for RM21.90 nett is good value for money! My spouse would love it so I am taking him to try this. Thanks for the review!

  4. looks like cart noodles, but I like it! so much 'liews'....yummmsss!!

  5. From the menu, it's quite obvious this is another HK-style cart noodles. Tried it once and found the sauces and flavours too robust for me...and the portion too filling for one. The only thing I like about HK eateries is their good quality luncheon meat...so, maybe the big bowl rice (but, then again, the word 'big' is a deterrent with so much meat, and processed at that, in one dish)! O_o

    1. Yes, the portion size is huge. I tried the beef big bowl rice today and I was impressed by the portion of rice and meat. I am still full as I write this hee..hee...

  6. Literally translated as "dirty noodles", La Za Mien in Cantonese which similar with our economy rice aka Zap Fan where diner can choose their preferred ingredients to pair with the noodles. But the price though, not really economy =.="

  9. i really like places that let us customise our noodle toppings - cos for example, i don't really like fish balls or crab sticks. i'd choose the brisket too! :)

  12. You are probably the only "Uptown Girl" who blogs about every restaurant there. I must inform my clients from See Hoy Chan Group to give you a gold medal. Kakakakakakakaka

    I love thin noodles like that with so much liu inside the bowl. The idea of laminated menu is excellent too!

    1. I want to tell the See Hoy Chan people that the Uptown beautification is not properly done. The pavements and sidewalks are lousy and some, falling apart!
