Restoran Segambut Yu Ai at Kuchai Lama

After several back-to-back posts on our home-cooking marathon, we figure that perhaps it's time to take a break and start eating out again! Haha. And so, just a few days back, the two superheroes along with their two superhero buddies, Eugene and Valerie got together for an occasion and so happened to find themselves in the Kuchai Lama area.



As we were driving around the Kuchai Entrepreneur's Park, Eugene spotted a somewhat familiar name on a signage that reads, "Restoran Segambut Yu Ai". He started getting all excited and went on to explain to the both of us superheroes that Segambut is famous for a certain noodle delicacy, and so exclaimed that this could probably be a branch of that one popular outlet there. So, for the fact that we know we could never get ourselves to fly all the way to Segambut for the original stall, this Kuchai Lama outlet immediately sounded very very enticing indeed...! *starts drooling...!*




Hence, we found ourselves a parking in this notoriously congested business area that often plays host to many triple parking vehicles alongside its narrow road. As it was late in the afternoon and way past lunch time, the restaurant was not really crowded with customers. Its wallpaper showcases many newspaper articles about the restaurant which could only mean that the foodie here must be good! :p

A quick glance at the very simple menu suggests that this restaurant must be very famous for its seafood as there's seafood in all five items on the menu. Yes, there are only 5 possible foodie that you can order here! Which goes to show that this must be a very specialized restaurant. Now we're beginning to get really interested...



And so, Superhero W ordered their Curry Noodles, Superhero S with her Soupy Noodles, while Eugene and Valerie went for Tom Yam Noodles and Dried Noodles. As we weren't exactly hungry, we went for "small" orders. Soon after, the foodie started making its way to our table...




OMG. OMG. OMG.
Yes, those three word expressions best sums up our facial expressions and reactions considerably. What was thought to have been a "small" order came out in this relatively large bowl of noodles with SO MUCH SEAFOOD swimming inside! Arghhh.........................



Here, let me see... there's a whole lot of prawns, XL oysters, slices of fishys, cuttlefish and clams all in Superhero W's big big bowl of Curry Noodles! And best of all, the curry base is exceptionally good! Not too spicy and very very thick indeed, complete with this really strong concoction of all the seafood taste. OMG. Fantastic! And this for only RM15. Judging from the amount of seafood swimming inside and the extra thick and flavourful curry, it's very worth it!



Superhero S' Soupy Noodles was also delightfully delicious with many ingredients such as crabsticks, bouncy bouncy fish balls, fish cakes, tau ke (fried bean curd with fish paste filling) and seaweed! And I absolutely love the soup... At only RM6, I'd say that this bowl of hot soupy noodles is a great deal. *grins*



We managed to take a sip out of Valerie's Tom Yam (priced at RM15) which was also laden with a ridiculous amount of seafood, and found the tom yam soup to be extremely thick and flavourful as well! We couldn't really judge if you'll be spitting out fire or not once you've downed the entire bowl but from that one sip, it was okay really. Not too spicy, just perfect actually! :p



Inclusive of drinks, this heavenly meal costs us close to RM50 for four. But seriously, nothing beats downing hot soupy noodles on a cold, cold raining day. This heck of a discovery really made our day! Haha. Will definitely be back again!
