Definition : Dark herbed broth poured over cooked noodles, garnished with vegetables, and topped with tender pieces of duck slices.

Recommended by The Australian (Australia's National Daily Newspaper )


Favorite Dish: Now if you're a backpacker, chances are you would crash in one of the many pads over here in Love Lane. Yes, the cheesy moniker did come about when rich businessmen kept their mistresses in the hotels over here a long time ago. But other than cheap sleeps, you can get really good Teochew food over here, in a beautifully restored shophouse, no less! The interior of the restaurant looks like an art gallery and an antique store all at once, with pictures, iron wrought lamps and dining tables with sewing machine bases. It's all too easy to get distracted but once you look at the menu, you'll discover lots of good old Teochew ( Southern Chinese) food that were priced reasonably (below Rm10). But instead of recommending all the rich dishes there, I thought it would be good to talk about their simplest dish. The humble duck noodle dish which came with really delicious herb broth and thin, resilient egg noodles. The wait staff told me later that the noodles were specially imported for the dish and were tastier than the local version. How right they were, it was delicious.

Cost of the Duck Noodles:Rm3-4

Afternote: I later found out that The Australian also recommended the duck noodles I mentioned!
