Hands in the air if you like Angry Birds ! I am kinda a late comer to this , but better late than never..Kill ‘em pigs !Oink oink. Quick rewind…. back in Uni days..in the hostel, sitting on the cold smooth cement floor, where I spent 6 straight hours on my bulky Gameboy playing Tetris..no toilet breaks even ! I must have had a much bigger bladder back then…..
Anyway, we were suppose to be discussing about food..
It was a bright and sunny Saturday afternoon, met up with F in SJ and as she was tired of the food at the kopitiam, we decide to try out some other shops around that area ( SS 15/4D) . We saw JoJo Pan Mien but the large crowd meant that there will be a long wait and our stomachs were not in a particular patient mood…so we decided to move on….
I hadn’t tried the noodles at Face to Face Noodles and the shop wasn’t as crowded as JoJo so this seemed to be a good choice for lunch.
We must have blend in rather well with the decor, or maybe too well until the waiter and waitress wasn’t aware of our presence and we had to waved them over to get a peek at the menu. There were a few items that seemed to be a specialty at F2F including : Traditional Sarawak Noodles, house specialty hot and spicy pan mee, creation minced pork pan mee, Sichuan piquant pan mee, dried curry pan mee and the fried dumpling .F had dined at F2F before and recommended the traditional Sarawak noodles to me while she decide to try the sizzling black pepper pan mee.
The homemade dried chili
Traditional Sarawak noodles ( RM5.60) : the noodles were served with slices of char siew ( bbq pork), minced pork and pork balls. There was also a bowl of soup that came with the noodles. The texture of the noodles were ok, firm and springy, char siew slices were tasty and tender, the gravy was ok. Not outstanding but adequate. I find the serving a bit small lah..
Sizzling Black pepper pan mee with pork ( RM8.90), one thing was that there weren’t too much of a sizzle when the dish was served, or maybe the sizzle had left the building. The gravy had a one dimensional taste which was bland, luckily the pork chop was tasty and tender which helped to make the noodles more palatable.
To continue with the East Malaysia theme, I ordered the Sarawak ABC special ( RM3.80), the shaved ice drenched in evaporated milk and red syrup was accompanied by read beans, corns, green jelly and longan. This was not bad
F ordered Magical tiramisu (RM4.50) which was said to be enjoyable.
My comments : I guess now I know why the crowd at the other shop was greater, enough said !
Apart from in SJ, I have seen Face to Face in
Kuchai Lama ( was adviced that this was closed) and Sri Petaling, there might be more..
