A stone throw's away from actual Petaling Street lies this stalwart for local delights. Tourists often make their way, but it is the stream of regulars who flock in daily that convinces us of its prowess. The old shoplot has cleaned up well — replete with air-conditioning and cosy seats — to serve customers from lunch through to dinner. Of great reputation, the Claypot Pearl Noodles (from RM12) makes a paramount order. Coloured dark by soy sauce, the lou shi fun (rat tail noodles) is heaped with minced pork and a raw egg yolk. The charm of this claypot noodle dish lies in its slightly rough-around-the-edges allure — it's what makes eating it a special and tasty experience. Otherwise, try their Majestic BBQ Pork Noodles (RM12) — deep-fried roasted pork with noodles doused in a luscious dark sauce.
Avg price per person: RM15
