Pun Chun Noodle House @ Kota Kemuning


The Zoo Gang was looking forward to a day trip to Seremban for our usual Quinn's beef noodles but due to some last minute changes, we ended up in Kota Kemuning instead. Needless to say, Tiger was pouting a fair bit along the way as she was looking forward to the beef balls but anyway....

We drove to Kota Kemuning, wanting to visit somewhere else actually but it was not opened and we ended up in Pun Chun Noodle House. Read about them opening a branch here a while back but never got the chance to try it out till now. I sure have lots of sweet memories of Pun Chun back in Bidor as that was one of the many food pit stops that the Apple Crumble Team aka Fantastic Four (comprising of Jackson, Precious Pea, Teckiee and me) made when we took part in The Star's Drive For Food back in 2007!

Pun Chun Kota Kemuning

Pun Chun
Well, they had the same sort of display here, selling the usual famous "chicken" biscuits sans the little snack corner that has delicious Woo Kok (Yam/Taro Puff) in Bidor.

Tiger's order of Duck Drumstick Dry Noodles (RM6.80) came first. I had to take the shots quickly as I was afraid Tiger would take a swipe at me with her "paws" if I took my time composing the shot. Hence I'm unsated with this pic of Tiger's food! Hahah :op
Duck Drumstick Dry Wantan Noodles
I remembered the soup in Bidor was darker and oilier. I tried a spoonful of soup and found the taste too strong and bitter for my liking and hoped I would like my order...

Duck Drumstick Soup Noodles
And luckily I did...my soup version of the same tasted better. I guess the noodles altered the soup's original taste, to one which I preferred. The noodles were nice and springy and I enjoyed it though I would say that I found this noodles okay overall as it fell short of my expectation, being a specialty of Pun Chun. The duck drumstick however was tender and had more of a duck breast meat texture than that of the usual smooth drumstick though. But of course, since I preferred duck breast meat, it's not a complain but I guess drumstick meat lovers would probably beg to differ. Well, either that or the gang was sorely missing the 'beef noodles'! 'Nothing Compares....nothing compared to youuuuuu......", Heehehe...

Char Siew Wantan Noodles
Cheshire Cat's order of Char Siew Wantan Noodles (RM5) came with char siew that looked and tasted like the usual run-of-the-mill roast meat at most wantan noodles stalls unless you're eating HERE or HERE!

We did order an extra bowl of only wantan (RM5.30) on the side. I found the wantan deliciously meat filled that was also springy. No joke, it was so springy that one had bounced off (when I placed it on my soup spoon with my chopsticks) onto the table! Best eaten with green pickled chillies.

Mushroom Chic Feet Wantan Noodles
Cow's order of Mushroom Chicken Feet Noodles (RM4.30) came with three rather huge chicken feet. They seem juicy enough as I watched Cow grazed on them last - Cow saved the best for last, you see...

After we cleared our bowls here, "We Don't Get No Satisfaction" were still somehow in need of something extra and decided to drive around the area.

jason said...

I have not tried the drumstick noodle, not even the one in Bidor, so I can't comment, I guess. :P

Life for Beginners said...

Ah, count me in as another person who prefers breast meat... So I wouldn't be disappointed either, fer sure! :)

tekko said...

wmw said...

BSG : Hahah...don't you wish you were there to witness it?

Ai Wei : You're so slim, can go eat again straight after dinner!

J2kfm : A shame, the woo kok we had when we tried it back then was rather delicious.

Jason : Go and try this one here in Kota Kemuning.

LFB : So we'll fight over the meat! hahaha...

Tekko : Hey there! Haven't seen you for awhile. Yah, I quite enjoyed the wantan.
