Bidor Duck Drumstick Noodle – Pun Chun Noodle House (品珍面之家)
Pun Chun Noodle House History
Established in Bidor, Perak since the 1940s, Pun Chun Restaurant is a must-stop destination for all good food fanatics. Well-known for its Duck Drumstick Noodle, Wan Ton Noodle and not forgetting the all-time famous Chicken Biscuit and Shat Kek Ma.
In May 2008, Pun Chun Noodle House was set up in Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam. Just like the original, Pun Chun Noodle House offers the same mouth-watering cuisines. KLites can now easily satisfy their cravings for a sumptuous meal within the Klang Valley vicinity itself.
*Pun Chun Noodle House is actually made famous with their homemade dry or soup duck drumstick noodle.
Dry Curry Pork Ribs Mee
We order a plate of “Dried Curry Pork Ribs Noodle” RM6.80 which is under the chef recommendation list, serves with dry wan tan noodle, curry pork ribs, and some veggies.
Although the portion is generous, we are still disappointed with the aftertaste, pork ribs have a very dried up texture (like been cooked overnight) while the curry tastes rather weird like nothing listed in our “curry” dictionary. 😉
*The chef recommendations in Pun Chun menu also includes – Char Siew Wan Tan Mee, Mushroom Chicken Feet Mee, and Curry Mee.
Signature Duck Drumstick Mee
We went Pun Chun for lunch once in a few years and their Duck Drumstick Mee (Soup) RM9.00 is a must order in the list – serves with duck drumstick, wan tan noodles, and veggies.
This is the first time we changed our option from dry into soup duck drumstick mee, but sad to say, this whole masterpiece becomes totally inedible (whole broth tastes like alkaline) which we suspect they’ve ignored the crucial steps of soaking the noodle in cold water (过冷河) beforehand.
What’s the point of visiting a restaurant when they can’t even keep their signature dish up to standard? So in our humble opinion, no more next time! 😉
*We used to have dry duck drumstick mee where they separate soup and noodle in a different bowl, from our previous experiences, the soup suppose to have the duck fragrant along with some Chinese herbal scent.
Sweet & Sour Pork Trotter
Since it was our precious weekend lunch and we are confident that we can clean up another side dish, hence, Sweet & Sour Pork Trotter RM6.50 – Pork trotter braised in black vinegar.
We are so happened to have some expectations about this dish (maybe too long never eat Bak Kut Teh), but never expecting that this dish would also turn out to be a huge disaster for us – So hard to chew with these super dried up meat texture (obviously been cooked overnight) just like having Australian Beef Jerky, even more disgusting, when we found out there are still countless of hairs all around the luncheon meat!!!
*Other than sweet & sour pork trotter, Pun Chun also offers other side dishes; mushroom chicken feet, rempah chicken, char siew and pork balls.
Whats Happen Next…
Some might get curious what is the ending for this meal right? We barely touch anything then straight asked for “Mai Dan” (bills), move on to foodcourt nearby and continue our lunch. Based on our observation, Pun Chun had changed their kitchen workforce from local into immigrants like Indonesian and Bangla, just imagine having an immigrant without any expertise to become a “cook” after being employed for a few months? 😉
