Yeap Noodles (叶面) @ Chulia Street, Penang.

I am sure Kwong Wah newspaper readers will be quite familiar with the name- Yeap Noodles. They were featured on the newspaper last year and they have moved their business from Transfer Road (to Chulia Street) since then. The unique selling point for Yeap Noodles is definitely none other than their flavored noodles. There are a total of eight types of flavored noodles available, namely Original, Soy Sauce flavored noodles, Spinach flavored noodles, Carrot flavored noodles, Peppermint flavored noodles, Oat flavored noodles, Chili flavored noodles and Seaweed flavored noodles. However, customers are not allowed to pick the flavored noodles they preferred and instead, everything has been meticulously paired according to them. I found the foods were very disappointing and I doubt that I will be going back for a second visit.

Tom Yum with Peppermint Flavored Noodles (Rm 5.50), choose between Prawns, Chicken and Squid and we had opted for squid. The soup was bland and does not possess the unique flavor for Tom Yum, even if it does, it was too mild to my liking. The combination of Peppermint flavored noodles and Tom Yum was odd which can be confusing enough as if he/she were eating Assam Laksa. Furthermore, the texture of the noodles were rather bad, they were soggy and probably overcooked. 


Spicy Noodles with Chili Flavored Noodles (Rm 5) was fiery hot, do not attempt this if your endurance level for spicy food is low. I have no idea why the sauce turned out to be starchy and it makes my noodles in a lump. The texture was equally horrible as the previous one, flavor-wise, nothing much to shout over, just a plate of ordinary noodles.


I was speechless the moment Sesame Chicken with Original Noodles (Rm 5) was served to our table. The noodles looked so bland and they didn't even bother to add some vegetables on the noodles. It turned out that I was right, it was just an ordinary plate of noodles with plenty of sesame oil, topped with some overly cooked Chicken Breast.
