My sisters and I went to the Boat Noodle, IOI City Mall yesterday. At last! All this while I have been reading about Boat Noodle on various blogs. And I usually left comments like, "Famous ya tempat ni. Selalu nampak orang shared pasal Boat Noodle ni" or "Nampak sedap sangat!" or "Bilalah nak dapat peluang rasa Boat Noodle ni?" or something along those lines. Now, it is my turn to try this Boat Noodle. Alhamdulillah. All thanks to Along for treating us! :)
I have no idea how Boat Noodle restaurants should look like (I assume Boat Noodle is a franchise, so all the restaurants should have more or less the same interior and deco) but the Boat Noodle at IOI City Mall is quite small. It is divided into two sections. The first section is as seen on the first picture while the second section is as seen on the second picture.
Both sections were so full when we were there. We were lucky to get seated! Though our seats were not really the most strategic one. But, beggars cannot be choosy right, haha! Oh, before I forget, Boat Noodle at IOI City Mall is located at the second floor. Hujung dunia punya tempat! And from my random observation, all Boat Noodle's employees here are men. Makes me wonder, dimanakah pekerja perempuan? Or, does Boat Noodle only hire men as its employees?
I let Along decided what to eat as I have no idea benda apa yang sedap dekat sini. And you know, if the food is not delicious, I can blame her for ordering those food! hahaha. Just kidding :p All I know about Boat Noddle is orang selalu makan bermangkuk-mangkuk kalau datang sini. That's it!
And Along being a good sister who knows how picky I am about food, she tried her best to order things that I will find delicious or at least good enough for my taste buds. I can say that she did quite a good job. I was not fully satisfied with the noodles that I ate. A bowl of noodles (I don't know which flavor) tasted quite funny but the rest were so good!
Things that we ordered
Pathumthani Chicken Thai Rice Noodle / Ayutthaya Chicken Thai Rice Noodle (MYR 1.90/bowl)
One of these flavors tasted funny! I don't know which one but the other one tasted so so so good! I have to figure out which one is the delicious one so that I can order it next time :)
Chicken Wings (MYR 4.90)I didn't get to taste the chicken wings but according to Along's friend, they were quite salty.
Thai's Popeye Tempura (MYR 6.90)
This one was delicious. I was reluctant to eat it at first because I am not a big fan of vegetables, but I was glad I decided to try it. It was crunchy and quite addictive. Thai's Popeye Tempura is made from spinach by the way.
Ka Num Tuay (MYR 1.00/set - 1 set 2 pcs)
This one was good too! It looked and tasted like kuih tepung pelita but the texture was quite different from kuih tepung pelita. Keras sikit dari kuih tepung pelita I would say.
Ice Blended Thai Green Tea (MYR 8.90)
Along and her friend ordered this. I'm not a big fan of green tea, so kita pass sahajalah. According to Along, Ice Blended Thai Green Tea is the most famous drink at Boat Noodle. Kiranya, kalau setiap kali orang datang Boat Noodle, memang mereka akan order Ice Blended Thai Green Tea ni.
Coconut Blended (MYR 8.90)
Kak Nur and I ordered this Coconut Blended. Oh my! Oh my! It tasted so so so good! You have to see my expression after I took my first sip! I was like, "Kemanisan dan kebahagiaan apakah ini?" Begitu sekali reaction seorang Farah :p
Seorang Farah yang sangat excited dengan Coconut Blended dia!
So, here is the final verdict. I would not mind to come again to Boat Noodle because at least there are some things that are pleasurable to my taste buds. And there are still a lot more things that I have to try! For instance, Boat Noodle has other things than noodles in its menu that are waiting to be tried. But, I have to try my best to avoid the tasted funny noodles.
And of course, I would not mind to come again because of the Coconut Blended! Coconut Blended Boat Noodle ni sedap sangat-sangat! Mohon tak terbayang-bayang kesedapan Coconut Blended Boat Noodle ni bila dah balik Canada nanti.
