Luk Yu Tea House, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Local buddies might say I’m crazy to pay 26RM for noodles in Malaysia.  These ones were really good though! Luk Yu Tea House in Starhill Gallery serves some mighty fine Chinese cuisine. What’s more, it’s air conditioned, clean and beautiful. Yes, I probably could get something just as tasty on a street corner, but then I might have to share the scene with rats, smelly drains and car fumes. This experience was much nicer. The service staff were fantastic too. They made suggestions, told us the house specialities, advised on the spiciness of various plates and and even told us when they thought we had ordered enough. The pictures above show mushroom soup, seasonal veges in oyster sauce, seafood noodles and Japanese udon noodles with black pepper prawns. Everything was fresh, tender and super tasty. If you have an American Express Platinum card you get a 50% discount when dining as a couple. So those 26RM noodles, that suddenly become 13RM, in the same friendly environment, start to look even better 🙂
