SOME owners of eateries will not think twice about putting up signboards at their premises claiming to be ?famous? in order to lure customers.

In view of this, I am very careful when I come across such eateries and have also turned down invitations from stalls and establishments claiming to be famous.

As a rule of thumb, popular joints seldom blow their own trumpet.

That said, I visited Pusat Bandar Puchong recently to try the kwon-loh (dry gravy) version of the Kota Baru beef noodles at KH 20 coffeeshop in Jalan Kenari.

I wrote about this makan place some time ago and it became an overnight sensation.

The offering at KH 20 coffeeshop was quite good but pretty expensive.

I ordered a big bowl with the works thrown-in.

After the meal, I walked towards the area with the most banks and found a stall in front of a chicken rice shop called ?Ah Bei Special Puchong Pork Noodles?.

Curious about the ?special? claim, I decided to drag my wife Michelle along during another trip to the area.

We found a table and ordered two bowls of pork noodles.

A Myanmarese was the cook while his fellow countryman took the orders.

I settled for a koay teow-mee combination while my wife opted for plain koay teow.

Two bowls of noodles cost RM11 (RM6.50 for the large bowl and RM4.50 for the smaller one).

Price-wise, it was pretty decent but where taste is concerned, I rate it as average.

My benchmark for the perfect bowl of pork noodles is at Peter?s Pork Noodles in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur.

And on the Samo-scale, Ah Bei?s received a 4 out of 10.

The soup was okay, not too heavily-laden with MSG, and the ingredients were also generous. What I did not quite fancy was the egg which was overcooked, rather than half-boiled.

Ah Bei Special Puchong Pork Noodles (GPS N 03 02.623, E 101 37.274) opens daily for breakfast and lunch. It is located off Jalan Kenari 1 in Pusat Bandar Puchong.
