I’d heard of the famed Tuaran Mee and Beaufort Mee, both hailing from the East Malaysian state of Sabah, but I’d never tried them. Never been that far East.
But I recently also found out that there was a shop in the Klang Valley that supposedly dishes out these East Malaysian noodles, and one day, had the opportunity to visit Restoran Ah Soon Kor in the SS3 suburb of Petaling Jaya.
Beaufort Mee (RM8 for single serving) reminded me of the local Cantonese Fried style of noodles, with an egg-drop sauce ladled over noodles. The noodles had a consistency that reminded me of yee mee, and came served with plentiful vegetables, lean pork and some char siew.
While quite tasty, I found it salty. I don’t know if it was because it was the day I went, or if that’s how it normally tastes, but the food generally tasted salty. But how then was the famed Tuaran Mee?
