RESTORAN AH SOON KOR, 42, Jalan SS3/31, Taman Universiti, Petaling Jaya

For Sabahan in the Klang Valley, if you do miss Sabahan dishes can always head over to RESTORAN AH SOON KOR, 42, Jalan SS3/31, Taman Universiti, Petaling Jaya, Selangor. This place has been around for more than 6 years now,

Sabah Tuaran Mee, Sang Nyuk Noodles and Beaufort Mee

Here at Ah Soon Kor, they do serve a number of famous and popular Sabah dishes such as the Tuaran Mee, Sang Nyuk Noodles and Beaufort Mee. I was around the neighbour to taste out some of their specialities.


Ah Soon Kor Sabah Tuaran Mee

The first dish is the Sabah Tuaran Mee which have some resemblance to the wanton noodles but the key difference is the Char siew, Here in the Klang Valley, we are more accustomed to the dark red version while the Tuaran Mee is roasted with a fairly light reddish outlook. 

Besides the Char Siew, it is also topped with a concoction of Minced pork meat that gives the Tuaran Mee a special taste.

Ah Soon Kor Fried Ikan Basung aka Sardines

Next on, I was coaxed to try the Fried Ikan Basung. It was fried to a nice crunch and was crispy right to the bone. You can eat the fish head which has a nice crunchy texture. The dish is also served with a special sambal sauce that you can dip with but I love the natural taste of the fish with the crunchy feel.

While it was crunchy on the outside the fish meat is still tender and juicy. Frankly speaking, I had not tasted Fried Basung aka Sardines but this is a really nice treat with a glass of cold icy beer.

Ah Soon Kor Choy Heong Tau Foo

The next dish is the Choy Heong Tau Foo, the tau foo are in-house made fresh and moulded in a circular bowl form and fried to a nice brown outlook. It is then topped with minced pork meat and layered with a special soy based sauce. Perfect compliment with a bowl of white rice.

Ah Soon Kor Sabah Style Yam and Pork

The final dish is the Sabah Style Yam and Pork. It looks almost like the Hakka style Yam and Pork dish that we are accustomed to but has a much stronger taste of the fermented bean paste (Nam Yue). The Yam was the perfect soft texture while the pork meat was tender and its marinade was just right. An order for another bowl of white rice was in order.

Overall, I like the taste of the dishes serves at Ah Soon Kor except for the Tuaran Mee which I still prefer our Wanton Noodles but for Sabahan, this might be just the taste they expect. Also, the prices of the dishes are affordable and wouldn't burn a hole in your pocket.
