We are big fans of wan tan noodles, so when we heard about Nippy Noodle Restaurant, it immediately went on our “To Try” list.
The restaurant had a traditional Chinese sort of air about it and the décor was themed around bamboo. You see, the noodles here are called ‘bamboo noodles’ due to the method in which they are made. There is even a glass room at the front of the restaurant for people to watch as the flour is manually pressed with a long stick of bamboo as part of the noodle-making process.
We ordered the Wanton Bamboo Noodles (馄饨竹升面), priced at RM5.10 for a small portion. We were pleased at the noticeable difference between these bamboo noodles compared to normal wan tan noodles. The bamboo noodles had a springy texture and were not soft to the bite. The sauce was nice and not overly salty. We definitely enjoyed this bowl of noodles! Don’t forget about the bowl of soup that comes along with it!
We also tried the BBQ Sliced Pork Bamboo Noodles (叉烧竹升面), priced at RM6.50. It was essentially the same as the above, but with the addition of BBQ pork slices. The pork was not the best around, but it was still nice along with the noodles. The meat was not too hard and had a slight amount of fat which was to our liking.
Nippy Noodle Restaurant serves up some good noodles from our experience there. One worth looking out for if you’re a fan of noodles!
