Peter's Pork Noodles + Brickfields Pisang Goreng, KL

I was never big on pork noodles until I discovered Machi, and now we have it at least once every week. Whenever we ask our friends where their favorite pork noodles place is, the answer we often hear is "Peter's Pork Noodles".

There are two Peter's Pork Noodles stall in Brickfields. The original stall is located in Money's Corner Food Court (across the road from Nu Sentral). There is also another Peter’s Pork Noodles stall at the nearby Restoran One Sentral (oppositeWisma YMCA), run by the founder’s son.

We visited the original stall recently with a friend. It can get super busy during lunch hours, so best avoid the peak hour if you can... come either before 11.30am or after 2pm. Grab a table, take note of the table note and head over to the stall to place your order.

You can choose to have dry noodles or noodles in soup, as well as specify whether you want extra egg as well as the spare parts (intestines, liver etc). We went for the small portion (RM6), which is a good ladies portion - so if you're a big eater, do opt for the large portion for an extra RM0.50.

I chose meehoon as my noodle option, while Hubby had the dry lou shi fun (rat's tail noodles). We read in an article that the broth is made by boiling pork bones for one hour, and then left to simmer. The broth here is clearer than Machi, with an additional ingredient - tung choy 冬菜(a type of preserved vegetable), giving the soup a unique, appetizing flavour. As we opted for no spare parts, our bowl of noodles came with minced pork, and sliced pork only, as well as some choy sum and chee yau char (lard fritters).

We had no complaints about the pork noodle here - we enjoyed it, though I have to say I prefer Machi's more robust soup and the location is more convenient for us as well.

Opening times: 7am to 4pm daily. Closed on alternate Mondays.

Location: Peter's Pork Noodles, Money’s Corner Food Court, 7, Jalan Vivekananda, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur. (You can park in Nu Sentral mall and walk over or alternatively in the open-air car park (RM4 per hour) directly outside the food court)

After pork noodles, we walked down the street to the famous Brickfields Pisang Goreng (located opposite Wisma YMCA on Jalan Thambipillay and outside the other Peter's Pork Noodles place) to get some banana fritters.

They had just ran out of pisang goreng, so we had to wait for 15 minutes for a new batch. They use pisang raja here, instead of pisang mas, hence they're larger than usual. We noticed that they use overripe bananas, which attributes to the sweetness of the bananas. Definitely worth the wait, the batter was light and crispy, and stayed crispy even when we tapau-ed it all the way home.

Price list

We couldn't resist getting the bola bijan (sesame balls with red bean paste filling) (RM1.40 per piece) and we loved the sticky chewy texture and generous filling. You must also try the kuih bakul (RM1.40 per piece), aka nian gao (glutinous rice cake that you usually get during CNY) that is sandwiched with sweet potato and deep fried. This was my favorite item from this stall.

And since we're already here, we might as well try the curry puff as well (RM1.60). Glad we did - so flaky and yummy! I'm only glad this is not a convenient location for us, otherwise our waistline will never stop expanding :P

Opening times: 12pm to 5pm.

Location: 19, Jalan Thambipillay, Brickfields, 50470 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur.
