One of the popular noodle joints from Alor Setar- Noodle History 尹面之家 has recently expanded its business operations to Penang... opening a branch at New World Park. Similar to its main branch, Noodle History offers its best product- honey barbecue Pork to Penang diners. The brand is also famous for its home-made Egg Noodles (almost similar to the classic Wan Ton Noodles but sans the alkaline lye water). The price points are slightly higher than usual but they are well-justified by the fairly large serving portion. Also worth mentioning is that the place is fully air-conditioned so its a comfortable space for a casual, quick fix.
BBQ Pork Wan Ton Noodles 招牌叉烧芙蓉面 (Rm 8.90)
Chicken Noodles 金丝滑鸡面 (Rm 8.90)
Signature BBQ Chicken 蜜汁鸡腿 (Rm 12)
Wan Ton Dumpling Soup 云吞汤 (Rm 8)
Unlike the typical Wan Ton Noodles, Noodle History's were lightly tossed in light soy sauce and plenty of Pork Lard. The soy sauce flavor was rather mild but the texture of the noodles was good. Overall, we did not think the noodles were of very outstanding, possibly better than average but not out of the world good. On the Char Siew (barbecued Pork), it has a good mix of fats and meat... nice meaty texture with good, honey flavor. Quite a good Char Siew that worked well with the noodles. As for the signature BBQ Chicken, the sauce was a little too sweet to our liking but we can't deny that the honey gave the Chicken a good boost in terms of flavor and texture (crispy edges due to caramelization). Good for sharing and may be a little monotonous for one to finish entirely.
