Review: Kungfu Noodle Brunei

My friend and I went Kungfu Noodle for lunch after we left TWO SONS COFFEE. We stayed at TWO SONS COFFEE for more than hour until it was almost time for lunch. San Diann left us after coffee and we parted ways.

Kungfu Noodle is still a relatively new eatery in the Sultanate. They have only been around for about two months or so. Yeah, I think they only started business around the time when Clara got married, which was in mid September. LOL! That’s how I remembered.

Kungfu Noodle was pretty crowded yesterday around 11:30AM when we walked in but diners come and go fast. They leave shortly after they finished their food and most of them don’t linger around for long.

Kungfu Noodle operates as a Chinese Halal restaurant specializing in Lanzhou hand-pulled noodle aka La Mian in Chinese. Aside from serving hand-pulled noodles, they also have rice dishes and BBQ skewers on the menu. The latter however would only be available from 6PM onward. Without further ado, let me show you what we had for lunch!

Chicken Noodle Soup | B$3.90

Zha Jiang Mien | B$3.90

When I posted this picture on my Insta-story, I had a few followers asking me what I thought of their Zha Jiang Mien. Fortunately for me, this was what they asked to comment but not the Chicken Noodle Soup as that wasn’t mine. LOL!

I was once being told that their Zha Jiang Mien tasted bland so I lowered down my expectation. My friend and I were served with side condiments consisting of deep fried peanuts and pickled vegetables. I didn’t have any of the two condiments. The Zha Jiang Mien came with a good amount of thinly sliced carrots and cucumbers, hand-pulled flat noodles and minced chicken in soy sauce.

So, what you do is you mix all the ingredients together until every inches of the noodles were well coated with the sauce. Do you remember the scenes in Korean dramas whereby the actors/actresses eat dark color noodles? They were exactly the same thing but this wasn’t as dark in color as the Korean version.

I honestly liked the texture of their hand-pulled noodle. It was thin and springy in my opinion. The texture was almost similar to our local Mee Pok but tad bit thicker and minus the alkaline taste. Sauce was salty when eaten on it’s own but turned a bit sweet and paired with the hand-pulled noodle. I was unable to finish the whole bowl given the big portion and I could only finish half. Nevertheless, their Zha Jiang Mien surpassed my expectation.

Verdict: Customer service was good in my opinion. They were kind of short staffed in my opinion. So, I went to the counter to retrieve the menu. They were apologetic about it but it was not a big deal.

Food were served promptly after our orders had been taken. I would say the price of their noodle dishes were affordable given the portion served. I honestly couldn’t vouch how the Chicken Noodle Soup fared but my friend mentioned that it was good. That’s how much I could say. LOL!
