GO Noodle House, The School Jaya One

Friday, December 26, 2014

I hardly spoke about before but my company has an unusual perk for its staffs - free lunches on Fridays. It was Boxing Day & the bosses decided to try out something different from the Chinese stir-fry restaurants. And so we headed to GO Noodle House at The School Jaya One because it's the nearest to our office.

As a matter of fact, it wasn't my first time dining at this restaurant & the last I tried was the pork ball noodle which they're famous for. This time, I made up my mind to order another dish in hopes that it's as tasty as its popular noodles. I picked dry pan mee while most of my colleagues opted the pork ball noodles.

Luckily, my pan mee arrived first & I couldn't wait to dig in with my chopsticks & spoon.

Okay...so the noodles was supposed to be pan mee, the chewy & springy texture that we all know too well. But this version of the noodles tasted more like a springy wantan noodle with dark sauce. No hint of pan mee texture at all. Moreover, the noodles & sauce were incredibly salty.

The soup was so salty & laden with MSG that I can't imagine scooping it onto the noodles. Adding on anchovies & minced meat as toppings could turn the entire dish into disaster. Oh my...I should've stuck to the regular pork ball noodles instead of trying to be experimental.

Overall, I'm giving a score of 3.5 out of 5. It wasn't because this pan mee spoilt my overall experience. The pork ball noodles I ate the last round was okay but not fantastic. Nevertheless, GO Noodle House is still a decent place for lunch, considering the premise can be quite crowded during noon.
