Pork ball noodle is somewhat of a side kick in the world of hawker food that involves pork and noodle. While pork noodle is Batman, pork ball noodle would be Robin.

Just like Robin, pork ball noodle isn’t exactly as prevalent as pork noodle, and in places where both types are available, Batman usually takes center stage.

Of course, everything has an exception, and such is the case at Win Heng Seng where the pork ball noodle stall arguably busier than the pork ball counterpart (I love the kidney).

The pork ball noodle comes in soup or dry version, and you get to choose from kuih teow, mee hun, yellow noodle, loh she fun, and the combination of them as stomach filler.

While the stall get get very busy (as with the kopitiam itself over lunch), it usually doesn’t take very long for your bowl of goodness to be served.

I particularly like the dry version here, there’s the properly flavored minced pork over noodle and black sauce, and the side of homemade pork balls and those super addictive Chinese sausage (lap cheong siu cheong). This is a largely savory, non spicy dish with pickled green chili in soya sauce for those who likes to have that bit of kick to go with.

I usually devour everything within 10 minutes or so, and maybe next time I should ask for more lapcheong. So irresistible.

The standard bowl goes for RM 5 or RM 5.50 RM 6, a pretty standard price for this area, and you won’t regret it. 😀

    I like Robin more, didn’t try the Batman until you recently blog about it. All this while when I was there, I have been always ordering Robin. 😀

        Catwoman can be the CKT there, and the Joker maybe the Nasi Lemak stall in front?

    just some little comments on the blog post.

    those lapcheong is actually call siew cheong (roast) and it is not typical lapcheong but yun cheong (cantonese)

    actually the soup version is the champion for over 30 years at the same stall (same taste as my childhood time, if memories serve well) and i could never find a better pork ball soup anywhere else.

    noticeably the hor fun there also not a typical kuih teow, it is like the ipoh hor fun which thinner and looks transparent too!

    I always make it a point to go and eat at this stall whenever I am in KL. The pork is simply awesome! *thumbs up*

    On a side note, apart from this pork noodle stall, I will also order the fried kway teow within the same kopitiam. Sinfully oily but taste nice! Haha!

    Pork ball noodle has always been my favourite and make it a point to have it when back in KL.

    I recently tried it at a stall in Cheras Mahkota (out of convenience) and to my surprise, it is as good as this Jln Imbi one. It is located at a coffee shop, next to Hong Leong Bank. Think the name is Wan Seng Restaurant. Must try!
