Xan Ling Segambut Hometown Dishes (巾彡玲 泗岩沫家鄉菜) is well know for their prawn noodles full of goodies inside (RM15) – lots of meat, prawns and vegetables. My picture above doesn’t do it justice because all the prawns are hiding underneath the noodles:)
I think my second picture gives it better justice after I’ve scooped out the noodles into a smaller bowl. The noodle is home-made as you can’t get this kind of noodles anywhere else other than making it yourself. The texture is bouncy and a bit udon-like. The soup is tasty with all the meat and prawn essence gone into the soup.
If you go there asking for noodles for two, don’t be surprised if you get an XL portion. The truth is – that is the smallest size. You will get the same size if you ask for portion for one. After Gary and I scooped out the noodles into our smaller bowls, there was still so much left.
Other delicious home-cooked dishes include the braised pork belly, stewed to a lovely crimson red (RM 11). All the meats are proportionate with the fat and the lean. Too much fat would be eating a mouthful of oil while the right proportions would be as if the fats are melting in your mouth, adding extra smoothness to the tender lean meat.
Simple stir-fried fresh vegetables (RM8)- delicious even cooked in the most basic style with garlic.
Yam rice (RM2.5) – I thought the rice was a little hard for my liking, but I liked the yam as it added sweetness to the rice.
Overall, service was attentive, food was prompt, extremely good and value for money. While the prawn noodle was enough for 3-4pax, it was only RM15. Our total bill came up to less than RM50. Can you imagine, we ate so much and it was only under RM50!
I look forward to my next meal at Xan Ling Segambut 🙂
