I've been hanging on to these pictures for quite a long time now. So, I better get it over with before I even forget about them.
Jaya Noodle House has been in the business of serving Wan Ton Mee for a good 35 years now. Founded by Lai Kok Choy in the old Jaya Supermarket (the big blue building that has been demolished) Section 14, it is well known to dish out one of the better wan ton noodles in town.
As it is situated in Jaya One, parking is ample. One could also resort to parking illegally by the side of the road to minimize walking distance.
We ordered noodles for each of us, and a couple of sides to share.
The Sui Kow was tasted exactly like its fried counterpart, 'not bad' but nothing extraordinary. It was priced at RM7.20 (no idea why is it cheaper than the fried version).
This 'lo pak gou' (Radish Cake) wasn't really impressive. The taste wasn't that great. I wouldn't recommend this. It was RM6 a plate.
Priced at RM8.30 a plate, it is relatively more expensive than the wanton noodles at a coffee shop. However, the portion was quite big. The noodles had a nice bite to it. The char siew wasn't too burnt. No wonder this place is famous for their wantan noodles.
This is exactly the same as the noodles above, except that it is served in soup. This is where one's preference comes in to determine which version of the noodles is preferred.
The price of this dessert was RM4.80. This dessert is a straight path to diabetes. It was overwhelmingly sweet. I remember myself wondering if the cook had accidentally chucked the whole bag of rock sugar in.
All in all, the Sui Kow was not bad, the noodles were quite good, the rest were errrrrrr. I've tried their curry noodles before, it was okay. Nothing really great.
This place would make a good stop for a lunch of wanton mee. I wouldn't recommend you trying anything else. Cheers.
