My computer is dying on me. It keeps getting hang and I have to end up resetting it. I somehow feel that Dell computers have a tendency to start giving trouble after 3-4 years (which usually corresponds to the warranty date). To top it up, photobucket isn't being very helpful at the moment. I had to upload my pictures 10 times to actually get it uploaded. Anyway, enough digression. Back to the food.
When it comes to food in OUG, one can always get a relatively large variety of good eats. There is a choice of Hakka Noodles at Restaurant Yang Kee, Curry Laksa at either Restaurant Hong Beng or Ah Loy Curry House, Pork Noodles at Restaurant Sun Sea or Pan Mee at Restaurant Swee Hing (there's always Steven's Corner if you run out of choices). Anyway, those are the only places that serves okay food. Anywhere else in OUG and you will be quite disappointed.
Parking is a very big hassle at Restaurant Swee Hing. You better pray lady luck is on your side if you're trying for a parking around here. To make matters worst, there is always a long queue for the pan mee at this place.
One can choose for the noodles to be pinched my hand or rolled out with the machine. There is also a choice for it to be cooked dry or soup based.
The noodles came with lots of minced pork, fried ikan bilis, some Chinese mushrooms, vegetables and a good sprinkle of fried onions. Tastewise, I would rate it as okay (my friends however swear by the pan mee here). I still prefer the Pan Mee at Lian Heng (SS19, Subang Jaya). The noodles are RM5 for small and RM5.50 for large. Mind you, the portion is quite big.
All in all, worth a visit if you somehow find yourself in OUG. If you fancy a change, you can also try the fried pan mee at Lucy's Stall in happy garden which is quite nearby.
