Reviews were really good for this legendary 𝗰𝗹𝗮𝘆𝗽𝗼𝘁 𝗹𝗮𝗼 𝘀𝗵𝘂 𝗳𝗲𝗻 (RM13). But standards have probably dropped — not bad, but a big disappointment from my KL trip.
The good: Noodles were well cooked, with a tantalising silkiness and bouncy plump bite — they slithered down my throat gracefully and effortlessly. A good amount of wok hei was worked into those little squiggles of rice flour as well.
The bad: sauce somewhat lacked flavour, and predominantly just carried salty notes. That said, adding their blend of green and red chilli helped to cut through the dull monotony of the dish with a bright spark of piquancy and heat. Honestly pretty decent, just felt lacking in robustness of flavour, which I'd expected from this establishment. (Don't even get me started on their salt mine of an omelette)
