Be it savoury or spicy, soup noodles are one of the most comforting and tummy-filling dishes with all the assorted ingredients included in the broth. So, if you happen to crave a bowl, we cover a list of 9 Places To Enjoy Different Types of Soup Noodles in Klang Valley.
Noodle Mansion turns out to be a crowd favourite among many noodle lovers, especially judging by the long queue when I first visited the shop at SS15 Subang. Apparently, most of them came for the signature Nine Grades by Siow, which has six different types of noodle bases arranged in a partitioned wooden tray. Think of it as your chance to sample all their noodle bases without ordering a full bowl each. Each tray also comes with an appetiser, a snack and a dessert. But I’m more interested in their Signature Soup, which I picked a side of minced pork. It goes well with the flavourful fish soup and the thin, yet springy noodles. The added sliced mushrooms, crispy anchovies and veggie made the Signature Soup all the more appetising.

2) Beef Bowl
Yet another noodle haven in the bustling neighbourhood of SS15 except this time, this place specialises in Thai-style beef noodles. A little trivia: Beef Bowl used to have a food stall situated at the corner shop of Restoran Foh Foh. What I liked about their beef noodles is the oh-so-satisfying and yes, even slurp-worthy beef broth. Not to mention it complements well with the mixed beef and springy beef balls. They offer six types of noodles to choose from, namely Thai Rice Noodles, Bee Hoon and Kuey Teow. I went for the former and all I can say, it’s a perfect combo. I have to say it was one of the best beef soup noodles I’ve ever tasted so far.

Jaya One is a place where you can find various Japanese restaurants. One of them worth mentioning here includes Shin Haru Tei, which is hidden within Block D. They serve different types of ramen, covering from the classic Tonkotsu Ramen to Miso Ramen and Kimchi Ramen. But what interests me the most is the unique Pesto Ramen. As in the pesto commonly used for pasta dishes. As weird as it may sound, the pesto ingredient actually elevates the umami taste of the ramen soup. The springy ramen noodles along with its juicy slices of chashu, seasoned egg, black fungus and seaweed rounded up this savoury Pesto Ramen.
Address: Jaya One, 69-P1, Block D, 72A, Jalan Profesor Diraja Ungku Aziz, 46200 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
The Japan-based Bari-Uma has a few outlets in Klang Valley including Jaya Shopping Centre, Pavilion KL and MyTown Cheras. I went to the latter outlet located on Level 1 and ordered their signature Bari-Uma. It certainly doesn’t come cheap (around RM 26 per bowl) but it was sure worth the price. It has robust and flavourful pork shoyu soup while the juicy goodness of the thick-cut chashu certainly hits the spot with the springy ramen noodles.

Located on the first floor of a shop lot, 7th Mile Kitchen specialises in Sarawakian street foods, namely kolo mee and tomato noodles. They also serve Sarawak Laksa, which turns out to be among many customers’ favourite dishes. It packs with lots of flavours, especially its fragrant savoury-spicy broth that pairs well with the noodles, shredded chicken and fresh shrimps.
Address: 20-1-3, Block C, Jalan 2/101C, Batu 5, Jalan Cheras, Cheras Business Centre, 56000 Kuala Lumpur.
6) Woltter Restaurant & Cafe
This coffee shop sells varieties of hawker foods ranging from wanton noodles to chicken rice and pork noodles. But if you prefer something spicy, one of the stalls that sell curry mee comes highly recommended. In fact, it was a crowd favourite that many patrons came as early as 7 am. And yes, their curry mee tends to sell out fast. Most customers praised its thick and robust curry broth, which has lots of spices. The essential ingredients that defined a bowl of curry me are all there: noodles, beancurd puff, okra, hard-boiled egg, fishballs and cockles, just to name a few.
Address: 1, Jalan PJU 5/20e, The Strand Kota Damansara, 47810 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
Craving for a bowl of prawn noodles? Klang Valley has a few good places that serve them and one of the recommended ones include Restoran Lim Mee Yoke. Located at SS2 PJ, many customers love the restaurant’s signature prawn noodles. The secret lies in its flavour-packed prawn broth that isn’t overly thick and it’s drinkable. They do not skimp on the ingredients with all the shrimps, beancurd puffs, hard-boiled egg and noodles mixed all together.
Address: 14, Jalan SS2/10, SS2, 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
A popular restaurant in PJ’s Sea Park specialising in Penang foods, expect plenty of choices on the menu. This includes everything from lobak to Hokkien mee and char kuey teow. They serve great Penang asam laksa too, which garnered positive responses among many customers. Here, their Penang asam laksa has a thick laksa broth filled with all the savoury fish slices as well as other assorted toppings and noodles. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to try their refreshing glass of Nutmeg Juice or Ambarella (Kedondong).
Address: 9G, Jalan 21/12, Sea Park, 46300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
Located in the same row as Maybank near Leisure Mall, you can easily spot Sister Noodles Shop, thanks to its bright yellow signage. They specialise in different types of pork noodles, covering from the traditional version to the added bitter gourd and spicy mala style. Their signature Traditional Pork Noodles comes highly recommended by most customers — flavourful pork broth with generous portions of fresh minced pork and pork slices. As for the noodles, you have 10 different selections such as bee hoon, yellow noodles, hor fun, rice noodles and even spinach noodles to pick from.
