The aforementioned “area” refers to Canning Garden / Ipoh Garden, my playground. Boy, have we missed Fei Lou’s (Fat Man) curry noodles when he relocated from Yat Yat Seng (日日升) since May 2017!
The local neighbours here can once again get their cravings for Fei Lou Wu’s curry noodles, Hainanese chicken rice and smooth chicken hor fun settled at their doorstep without going to town, or specifically to Pinji Centre Point, which is now managed by Fei Lou’s son.
Fei Lou Wu opened for business on Mid-Autumn Festival (24th Sept). As I was away, my family and I could only patronise this new outlet recently. Signature items on the menu at Fei Lou Wu, as mentioned above, are curry noodles, Hainanese chicken rice and chicken hor fun.
It was obvious that our lunch included all these dishes, and more. I am happy to report that we had a satisfying meal. With 32 years of experience, they have a worthy reputation to uphold.
The bowl of curry noodles, prepared in thick curry broth, was garnished with a selection of meats, such as chicken, roasted pork, BBQ pork (char siew), as well as prawns. Add-ons of pig’s skin and cockles are available, at an additional charge of RM1 and RM2 respectively.
For the Hainanese chicken rice, we opted for white (plain) rice, instead of oily rice. So, it’s technically just half Hainanese. Haha! Doesn’t matter, ‘cos the chicken was likewise tender.
And then, there is of course, the chicken hor fun. Do you know that when I was told that Ipoh hor fun is a class above, I did not actually believe it until I ate in Penang and Kuala Lumpur? It’s the truth. Fei Lou Wu’s hor fun has definitely done Ipoh hor fun justice!
One more item that we ordered was the combination meat of roast pork and roasted chicken, served with plain rice. Although Fei Lou did not list this down in its recommendations, this is still a great choice, if you like meat.
To wrap up the meal were egg custard and guilinggao, both homemade. Just for the record, drinks and desserts are served by another party, so payment is made separately.
If you are in the vicinity of Canning / Ipoh Garden, do drop by. A word of caution, Fei Lou Wu is still not as systematic yet as Yat Yat Seng Fei Lo Wu at Pinji Centre Point.
