Pudu once referred to as Pudoh during the colonial era is renowned for iconic landmarks like Pudu Prison, Pudu Sentral (Kuala Lumpur’s oldest bus station and Pudu Wet Market. The bustling streets of Pudu also lie a true gem for all local delights. Chun Kei Tai Bu is situated at the heart of Pudu, occupying a corner lot within a local coffeeshop. We are here for the local breakfast experience.
Chun Kei Tai Bu keeps things simple with just two main options on their menu – regular Hakka-style noodles and lou shi fan, the rice rat tail noodles. It is available in three sizes- Small, Medium, and Large.
On my recent visit, I ordered the classic Hakka noodles in small size RM9.00 ~ S$2.61. The first thing you will notice is the texture of the noodles. Firm, bouncy and QQ unlike your regular strands, they have a unique ability to absorb the flavours of their toppings perfectly. The bowl is generously loaded with minced meat and char siew. The minced meat is deeply flavourful, seasoned with a generous amount of sesame oil, and adds a multi-dimensional texture to the dish. The char siew slices are a bit tad dry though.
To complement the carb-loaded delight, the noodles come with a bowl of wonton soup. Decent wontons that serve as an excellent palate cleanser as well.
Chun Kei Tai Bu is conveniently located near the Pudu LRT station, making it easily accessible for both locals and tourists. They open early in the morning so you can start your day with a hearty meal just like us. But do keep in mind that they open until late afternoon.
If you are a fan of Hakka noodles, rich porky flavours, try this eatery in Pudu, Kuala Lumpur. I recommend giving this Pudu eatery in Kuala Lumpur a try. This unassuming eatery promises a truly authentic local breakfast experience.I’m already contemplating when I can make my next visit to savor their exquisite noodles once again.
