When I blogged about curry seafood noodles last year, many people asked me for the address or directions to get there.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have the info then, but now I’ve got it!
You know, I’ve asked around my Malaysian friends. And it turns out it’s one of those places, no one knows what the restaurant is called, no one knows the street name, no one knows how to give directions there. But everyone knows about it and how to get there on their own!
Maybe it’s just a conspiracy to keep people from thronging to the place and pushing prices up. Hahaha.
But I shall be kind (or inconsiderate, depending on how you look at it) and reveal it today!
The outlet is called Restoran Yu Ai. It may be called a restaurant but it looks more like a dingy roadside stall which offers only one food item.
Actually, once you know the name of the restaurant, you can google it. It’s out there, lol, and not really secret.
It’s located on Jalan Segambut Utara.
I took a picture of the street sign but I took the wrong one (because it was drizzling and I didn’t want to linger around outdoors for too long)! Haha. But this will work, because the restaurant is only about 30 metres from this corner. (And I’ll post a map and the full address at the end of this entry.)
We usually park behind the restaurant, where there are outdoor seats in the carpark.
I prefer to sit inside (upstairs) because it’s cleaner and more spacious. I mean the tables aren’t crammed together like you see here.
If you sit outside, you’re sitting beside this:
But then, people don’t seem to mind. This place is packed every time I go there.
The seafood noodles come in different flavoured soups — clear, curry and tom yam.
The smell of tom yam is the most prominent when you walk into the restaurant. It smells really really good and I always have half a mind to order it. But I’ve been there three times and three times I’ve ordered curry because it’s the best!
The Goonfather also likes the clear version. I hate it because the taste of seafood is so strong it’s almost raw.
There you have it. Please don’t go too often because I don’t want a bowl of noodles to cost $20 the next time I go there! Haha. Each bowl costs RM14 right now, which is S$6 or US$4.40. My KL friend says the price keeps going up.
Oh, and if you’ve tried the tom yam before, please tell me whether it’s good!

Sigh… I remember having the tomyum. It’s just as its name describes. Tom, Yum.
If I am ever there (which is probably never) I will stop in.
(but then again, you never know)
precious: AWww man. Now you make me regret not trying it! I dunno when I’ll be going to KL next. =( Must bug the Goonfather to take me there soon soon!! :P
Mike M: Haha, yeah you never know! Memorise the address for one of those just-in-case situations! lol.
Does have the “buying look” :D~
Veri big prawn!!! Hei Hei Hei :D~
ahhh… *drools all over pc*
Hehe near, pretty near. Will try to hunt down this place the next time I’m home.
But the problem is they all look the same :P
Looks good! But ..
I cannot eat seafood – -”
Such a torture to see delicious food you cannot eat – -“
Looks interesting enough. Will make a note to come back to this post fro reference if I go KL again.
Ashtar83: Haha, you’re damn funny. The prawn is indeed big. Very yummy too! ;)
xinyun: lol… I feel sorry for your PC.
Miss Loi: Near where? Your hometown? How come you don’t know about it when it’s near your home? Haha.
Pingping: Aww, that’s sad. Is it a major or minor allergy? I heard there are pills you can take to stop the allergy symptoms from happening, then you can eat!
JayWalk: Yeah, it’s really worth trying out. :)
Hmmm… the second picture doesn’t really look good to eat… :((
modchip: You mean the second curry picture or the clear soup picture?
This one, clear one: http://www.sheylara.com/images08/0319seafoodnoodles07.jpg
Some food here that looks like that tastes eeky… especially the meat of that shell thing… eeewww…
is it the bowl that is small or the prawn that is big? but still, i dont think i’ll go sucha long way for that. perhaps i’ll die of hunger while trying to find my way there
modchip: Yeah, that’s the clear one. It tastes disgusting. To me. Haha.
shin: The prawn is big lah, you can compare it against the chopsticks and spoon, which is always one size only. :P Actually I wouldn’t mind driving all the way there just to eat it. Of course, that’s probably because the Goonfather is the one doing the driving. lol.
I KNEW IT! lol. :D
Curry seafood noodles, so tasty….
How do we make it??
