The shop was packed when I was there for lunch, which speaks for itself how good the food are. With Penang cooking background the shop stir up excellent curry noodles, soup or dry and now even offered curry chicken rice. They also have pork noodles available but when I am here, I only target their curry noodles ;).

John and I was so syiok with it we almost didn’t had enough, next trip you will see us ordering the big portion! Damage was RM6 for each of us for the regular noodles plus 1 herbal tea drink, pricing is reasonable!

From what I know, the owners used to operate a canteen at Proton factory and had gave that up to open their stalls in Sri Muda and the shop now operated by their son. The boss is guai lou, so don’t be surprise if he is cooking up your noodles 😛

Suggest you should go slightly earlier as peak lunch hour is really packed but they do serve it up quite fast. Quality is still as good as the old stall and that is a good thing. Highly recommended to anyone who loves curry noodles.

Besides duck, you can also opt for roast pork as well. The rice option is serve on a normal portion, we opted for roast pork mix with roast duck on the rice with some vege and gravy on it. I won’t fancy the sauce, mainly its sweet but the roast duck and roast pork is good 😉

The noodles version is rather small, just like all thai noodles portion. The noodles are yellowish egg noodles with a wanton added with vege in soup with the roast duck topping. The soup and all is ok but I don’t fancy the egg noodles taste and portion is too small for me, have eat 2 bowl, then again reason to eat both noodles and rice, hehe. However, with a little twist of adding the usual noodles topping like chili powder and some vinegar, the soup is really good!

Price here start at 40-50 baht per order depending what you want on it and good thing is that the owner understand some basic English and there is an English menu available ;). Parking is also easy here, so not a bad place to have some good roast duck here in Phuket.

The last time I tried to come here just 15 mins before their closing time, I was informed that they had sold out for that weekday night! That just show this place is so popular and the night I was here, the place was packed and we had to wait for a table.

The menu is very standard, just claypot chicken rice in its original form… either you have it plain, add salted fish, add chinese sausages, add egg or with extra chicken. I think that is the way it should really be with speciality store like this, no point have so many fancy options and dilute the original dish. The claypot chicken rice here are all still cooked with charcoal and that is how claypot chicken rice should be cooked too!

A small chicken rice starts at RM7.00 and the big one meant for 2 pax starts at RM13.00 with the various options mentioned above. A varieties of steamed soup is offered all flat at RM5 for a small pot good for 1 or 2 person to share in my opinion. There are also various vegetables and drinks to offer.

This is how ordering here works, once you get a table, the workers place empty plates and cutleries on your table and a menu. They will only take your drinks order on the table. Once you have decided what you want to eat, then you proceed to the counter at the kitchen, let the lady know your table number and what you want to order.

While waiting for our orders, Ah Fei was providing feedback telling me that I need to update my blog more.. haha… ok ok.. noted, will try to update more ya!

We took 2 big and 1 small claypot chicken rice, add with added salted fish and sausages. We share each pot with all 5 of us and funny thing is each pot tasted different. I think the kitchen must be rushing for the crowd… cause the first small pot was just ok, the second pot was good but the third pot is quite burnt.

Usually when its a bit burnt its fine and we would purposely want the “fan chew” or burnt rice as its crunchy and nice but the rice is not burnt harden, still soft but have this strong burnt taste on the third pot.

Anyway, other than the third pot, judging from the second pot, the rice does not stick and not too dry either so I guess that is why the shop is so packed! I didn’t try the soup, so can’t comment on that. But anyway, thumbs up to the shop for maintaining the good taste and authentic style of claypot chicken rice.
