Puncak – Honeydew Hen Noodles

Puncak is a reputation I’m positive many individuals are accustomed to. In spite of everything, it’s been round for YEARS (since 1988 apparently!) and a preferred hang-out for a lot of together with the equally-popular Cahaya simply subsequent to one another.

The dish featured right here is definitely a very fashionable one. However for me, Honeydew Hen Noodles is not only one other plate of noodles. It’s truly a extremely fascinating story that dates again to once I was only a child.

The primary time I heard concerning the dish ‘Honeydew Hen Noodles’, I used to be actually younger I believe like perhaps 8-9 years previous perhaps? Our Dad used to purchase again from and generally even convey us to makan at this place known as ‘First Muslim Connoisseur Noodle Restaurant’ which additionally was at Far East Plaza (the store area is now a small Japanese Sushi restaurant close to Sakura Restaurant). I’ve to say – that was actually among the finest issues I’d ever eaten as a child!

So what precisely is the ‘Honeydew’ in ‘Honeydew Hen Noodles’?
No, it has nothing to do with the fruit in case you ask me. It’s truly extra to do with Honey itself which is clearly used within the preparation and cooking of the hen and in addition the thick, orange-y gravy that comes with the dish.

The signature gravy is a bit of on the candy aspect however truly goes very effectively with the hen. Make sure to give it an enormous combine with the noodles so the whole lot will get coated actually properly earlier than the slurping begins! 😛

The hen has a pleasant charred outer-layer so you possibly can truly take pleasure in this roasted hen which has a fantastic flavour if you chew in. Sadly, I received the hen wing on this case so I ended up biting into fairly a little bit of bones. The truth is, now that I come to think about it, it was just about all the time hen wings once we had Honeydew Hen Noodles at First Muslim and I believe I truly actual loved it.

So I ordered some Fried Wantons to go alongside which is all the time a good suggestion proper particularly if you’re having noodles. You may order both $5, $7 or $10 relying on how many individuals you’re consuming with or how hungry/grasping you’re feeling. The truth is, I’ll received so far as to say it’s a criminal offense if you don’t order some Fried Wantons to go together with your Honeydew Hen Noodles! 😀

One thing fascinating concerning the Fried Wanton is that the filling is not only minced hen however there seems to be carrot integrated in there someplace too. Now, this isn’t essentially a foul factor however I suppose it was only a little bit of a shock.

Anyhow, the Fried Wantons had been good! Finest loved #HotHotShiokShiok so take pleasure in whereas sizzling and crispy. I’m fairly positive this is among the hottest aspect dishes at Puncak – simply go searching in any respect the opposite tables if you go to Puncak and I’m positive you’ll see Fried Wantons on most of them.

The menu at Puncak is definitely fairly in depth, they not solely have a wide range of noodle and rice dishes to select from, they’ve even received Claypot dishes, a powerful Tze Char choice all of that are freshly ready upon order. I do see others ordering completely different dishes however as all the time, I find yourself ordering the identical factor each time 😛

Puncak is a legend. I’d be shocked if somebody says they’ve not not less than heard of it earlier than. And whereas the Puncak vs Cahaya debate will proceed rage on, I suppose I are inclined to lean in the direction of Puncak a bit of bit extra.

You could have your favorite dish(es) however that is positively mine. So in case you haven’t tried the Honeydew Hen Noodles earlier than, perhaps give it a go subsequent time. Strive it not less than as soon as to see in case you prefer it or not.

And don’t neglect the Fried Wantons 😉
