Revisit: Annie 1 @ Damansara Uptown

After being reminded of a delicious bowl of curry laksa on phonghongbakes recently (not once but twice....thanks a lot, haha!), I was inadvertently tempted as it has been a while since I last had it (you can read my previous post here).

So, a trip to Annie 1 @ Damansara Uptown for breakfast, specifically for curry laksa (again), was the order of the morning.

Both my husband and my mother-in-law went for the Curry Laksa Supreme @ RM8.50 that had all the works....char siew, fried bean curd sheets, bean curd puffs, pig skin, pork meat ball and wantan.  Somehow, the curry didn't seem as good as when I had it the first time....probably because my expectations were higher this time round....kekeke! ^_*

I decided to go with the Curry Mee with Yong Liew @ RM6.80 instead with wantan noodles this time thinking I would be getting some pieces of yong tau foo.  It came with a big dollop of almost-sambal like thick curry on top (which helped thickened the curry).  I don't remember seeing it served this way the last time.  I wonder if that was why it wasn't as good this time round as the thick curry didn't have time to infuse with the curry broth? >_<

The yong liew was also a letdown as it didn't turn out to be the yong tau foo that I was expecting but just stuffed fish paste like bean curd sheets and bean curd wrapped fish cakes that tasted like those commercially produced fish cakes you get from the market.  Nevertheless, it's still a very decent bowl of curry mee.  I think I'll stick to the Supreme Curry Laksa from now on.

My son's Menglembu Wantan Mee with Sui Kow @ RM8 is still as tasty as ever and the char siew was the perfect well caramelised half lean half fat cut....yum! ;)

Sui Kow (Soup Dumplings)

Chow down all your noodles with a cup or glass of their must-order Ipoh White Coffee.  I also had the Ipoh Mak Chuk Tong Sui @ RM3, a kind of sweet wheat porridge dessert, that turned out really good....not overly sweet and full of "santan" (coconut milk) flavour.  I would definitely have this again.

My Personal Opinion

Still a good place to get your wantan mee and curry laksa fix but you'd probably want to stick with the curry laksa supreme.....washed down with a glass of iced Ipoh white coffee and a sweet dessert of Ipoh mak chuk....yes! ;)

  1. I love this shop and everything inside their menu is very good! You must also try their big bowl of pork noodles too. I often ordered their Ipoh White Coffee, Wan Tan Mee, Big Breakfast and Caramel Custard. I am hungry now.... so sad.

  2. In spite of the less-than-stellar-compared-to-first-time curry mee, I still went back for more hee..hee... So far I have only had that and the wanton mee. Somehow I was not motivated to try anything else. The Ipoh White coffee is still very good and I rotate that with Kopi-O.

    1. Those two are probably the best choices here. You may want to give the mak chuk a try :)

  3. I had their wonton mee & laksa & I want to go back for their dessert, caramel pudding to be precise :P

    1. The caramel pudding was nice and smooth but they load it with quite a lot of caramel...so, unless you have a very sweet tooth, it may be too sweet (as it was for me).

  4. Heh... these days I know yong liew = stuffed bean curd skin only. If they serve yong tau foo then they will call it yong tau foo. I made the same mistake as you did for more often than I like in the past in many stalls >.<

    1. Probably no interesting aspect about Menglembu wantan mee, just good wantan mee hailing from the area? ;)
