RESTORAN PUYUAN.

Restoran Puyuan is a perennial favorite for Hokkien food and it's obscured location is a real letdown, you will not even give it a second glance.

The white colored painted plywood front of the restaurant with it's Chinese characters name and business hours on the door are the only clue that's it is a restaurant.


The only consolation is that the dining area is air conditioned with a few wall mounted fans and can accommodate 8 dining tables, only!


But what the heck?

Be there early - the food served are delicious!


If you are coming from KL, on seeing the SRJ(C) arch, turn in, it's on your left, behind Yew Kee Seafood.



The front of the shop.

The sparse interior.

Glass noodle-fried Hokkien style with prawn, slices of pork, lard, lots of sweet and crunchy Chinese round cabbage and topped with deep fried crispy dried shrimp and sprig of Parsley-was perfect!

Sliced rice cake noodle cooked the same style-the rice cake noodle was of the right texture and blended well with the other ingredients.

Potato flour noodle-was done the same style-the noodle was way, way too soft and fragile-i prefer the Restoran Hua Xing's version..

p/s Will be going back to try their Steamed fish, deep fried Pork rolls and others dishes!

Total bill:Rm24/ + 2 Herbal drinks.
Location:112, Batu 4 1/2, Jalan Klang Lama,
Kuala Lumpur,
Tel: 03-7982-4410/016-279-0629/012-364-2684.

Ohhhh Yeaaaaa.... I've been searching for this eating place for quite sometime now. I saw the food variety show in Singapore featuring this place and was so fascinated by its interesting and unique delicacies but I failed to take down its address. Thanks so much for sharing , I will definitely make a trip down when I visit KL.

foodbin said...

A Full-Timed Housefly-is it?

The Chong Wen School arch is it the one next to the Post Office?

I went to this shop today due to the good comments from blogs, but, alas, I was very very disappointed.

For 2 adults, we ordered the fried sweet potatoes noodle, fried glass noodles and fried century eggs and these all added up to RM26. When I asked the lady why so expensive, she told us the fried sweet potatoes noodle is for 2 persons. I protested that we only ordered 1 person portion for each of our dishes. How could we have ordered a 2 person portions of fried sweet potatoes noodle when we also had fried glass noodles and fried century eggs, when there were only 2 adults. And the portion of fried sweet potatoes noodle is so little, didn't seem to me like for 2 persons.

There is another shop opposite FGA church at Jalan Kuchai Lama. Also serve the similar foods, supposedly operated by a relative to this Restoran PuYuan. I think it's called Restoran Lim Kee. Taste way better and also charge accordingly, not conning people as the like one.

I regret going to Restoran Puyuan today, and it will be last time I get conned by them!
