Food Trip #6: Kampua Noodle @ Kampung Koh, Sitiawan

After a good night sleep, I woke up early the next day to track down the famous Kampua Noodle in Sitiawan the next morning. I have read from Motormouth From Ipoh and You Get What You Give excellent write up on the noodle prior to my food trip and made it a point to give it a try.

Finding the stall was a bit tricky initially as Google Map pointed me to the wrong destination. However, it wasn’t hard to locate the place as the stall is situated just beside the main entrance of Kampung Koh Wet Market. The best landmark is to keep a lookout for the big Pasar Awam Kampung Koh signboard (see picture below).

Luckily for me, the morning crowd alread dispersed by the time I arrived there at 9:00 a.m. on the weekday. I ordered the dry version of Kampua Noodle (RM 2.60) which I heard is better than their equally famous Loh Mee.

Kampua Noodle is a different type of yellow noodle. It is noticeably flatter and smaller in diameter as compared to the usual yellow noodle used for cooking Hokkien Noodle. While I am not sure if the noodles were homemade, it has a good texture (springy) and absence of Kan Sui (alkaline water) taste.

The Dried Kampua Noodle came with a few slices of Char Siew which is the usual type served in most Wantan Noodle stalls. Nothing fancy here.

Taste wise, it was nothing out of this world. The soya / black sauce was slightly more diluted and has a tinge of sweet flavour in it. While it didn’t bowl me over, I do appreciate the homely taste of the noodle.

If you are looking for something that will bowl you over, you won’t find it at this stall. On the other hand, what you will get some is the good ol’ home cooked taste without any excessive ajinomoto flavouring.

With this write up, my food trip has finally came to an end. It was definitely a memorable trip and I hope to embark on such journey again in the near future.
