Those who know me well knows that I’m not a big fan of noodles. But this place is an exception – Lee & Lee Noodle Delights.
Lee & Lee Noodle Delights
This restaurant has been around ever since I was small. Tired of the usual black sauce wanton noodles? Try my personal favourite – dry curry wanton noodles! The curry’s rich and spicy taste goes really well with their sweet and soft charsiew, prawns and noodles.
|Fun fact: Wonton noodles is a noodle dish of Cantonese origin. The dish is usually egg noodles served in hot broth, garnished with leafy vegetables and wonton dumplings. In Malaysia, different states have different version of the dish. The Malaysian version differs from the original in having slices of char siu added to the dish, as well as the possibility of the soup and wontons in a separate bowl.
Dry Curry Noodles – RM7
Dry curry noodles – a must try! Add sambal which is usually available separately on the grey metal bowls on various tables. I normal add a spoonful or two of sambal onto my noodles if I’m dining there.
Their shrimp though in pictures look like they give you 4 shrimp, it’s actually only 2, as it’s a shrimp sliced into two. Portions are small. I added extra noodles.
Add-on – Shui Gao (Water Dumplings) – RM1.50 / piece
Did you know that wanton and shui gao are two different type of dumplings? Shui gao is often bigger in size as compared to wanton. It’s a wanton on steroids. A shui gao should usually contain either pork or shrimp as its base, and some vegetables like chives or cabbage. The one sold here is RM1.50 apiece. It’s the perfect combination for your spicy noodles.
|Did you know? Water dumplings are crescent-shaped dumplings that are called shui gau. They are called water dumplings because they are cooked in boiling water.
Verdict – Must try!
This place no doubt is one of the best breakfast spots in Alor Setar. A must try for noodle lovers! Also, those who love chicken leg will be happy to know that they offer it with noodles or as a standalone dish in their menu. It’s pretty rare to see chicken leg being offered for breakfast.
Overall, this store is pricey for the same plate of noodles as compared to other local stores in Alor Setar. But for the taste, it’s worth it!
