While this eatery is known as “Prince Noodles” 王子面, it does not sell the Taiwanese “Little Prince Noodles” but KL Handmade Noodles instead.
Prince Noodles is located at ARC380 Lavender – the building got a little attention of late due to Happy Congee (滿粥了) at Bgain foodcourt.
Owner Liang Kwan learnt the recipe of the KL handmade noodles from a Malaysian friend of his.
There are currently only two items on the menu – Handmade Noodles ($5, $6) in dry of soup versions. There are choices of Ban Mian, You Mian or Mee Hoon Kueh.
Additional onsen egg cost $1 extra. The owner intends to include shiitake mushroom, prawn, meatball, and clams sometime in the future.
The Soup You Mian I had was included with minced meat, star gooseberry leaves, and anchovies served separately so that they can remain crispy.
The broth came across as rather light (some would describe as “qing”, in fact one of the lightest I had – which some customers may prefer if they do not want something salty or rich.
The sweetness of the mani chye came across more obviously when you take sips, and in fact made the overall soup taste ‘healthy’.
Actually, one of the reasons why is because the typical saltiness of the ikan bilis do not seep into the broth.
Comparatively, the dry Mee Hoon Kueh was the more impressionable of the two, with the pulled noodles having a soft and slightly chewy texture and a good bite that didn’t feel too heavy overall.
Give it a toss of the black sauce with a sweetish-savoury balance (really the star of the dish) and some chilli mixed in, which made the bowl a lot more appetising.
But is this exactly KL style Pan Mee? Perhaps I was expecting the iconic fragrant dry chilli some where.
