BANDAR Puteri in Puchong, Selangor, is a boom town and a food-lover’s haven.
There are many makan places here and if I don’t cook for my wife, we would take a trip to this township to savour some good dishes.
My latest venture was to Mama’s Kitchen (N 03 01 298, E 101 37 020) in Jalan Puteri 2/4.
This is said to be an offshoot from a famous claypot Loh Shee Fun stall (rat-tail noodles) in Jalan Sultan at Kuala Lumpur.
Here, we tried their house dish: the sar-pou Loh Shee Fun (RM12) and the siew yuk fun (roast pork noodles) at RM8 per plate.
If you love noodles in claypot, then this is the place to be.
At RM12 per serving, the Loh Shee Fun was pretty decent-tasting.
A combination of minced pork, topped with a raw egg makes the noodle smooth when you mix it thoroughly.
Well, some folks may not like their food salty, so, let me warn you that Mama’s Kitchen is pretty generous in their salt usage.
And in the case of a reader who contacted me about his salty gravy from a noodle stall in Brickfields that I had recommended previously, it’s best to tell the hawker right away, not me.
Okay, getting back on track, the siew yuk noodle is quite tasty, but if you are a health buff, I wouldn’t recommend it because it’s quite oily.
On the Samo-scale, Mama’s Kitchen Loh Shee Fun rates a 6 out of 10.
Other noteworthy dishes at the outlet are the pig stomach soup with pepper and the stir-fried honey pork belly.
I wouldn’t recommend their yong tau foo because it’s pretty lame.
The restaurant opens for lunch and dinner daily and is closed on certain days.
Since Bandar Puteri has no good transportation link, it’s best that you get there by car-pooling. For directions on how to get there, do a search on ‘Google Maps’.
