Restoran Yu Ai @ SS2

    P1170363

    More than two decades ago, Yu Ai Seafood Noodles took root at Segambut as a humble little noodles place. Today, it has become one of the most famous eating establishment around Klang Valley, giving us the impression of a place that lures loaded consumers who are willing to pay ridiculously high price for a bowl of noodles (fyi, RM13 for small and RM15 for big).

    Numerous positive reviews on the seafood laden bowl of noodles from floggers piqued our curiosity and we had to check it out. Now that it has spawn into another two outlets around SS2 and USJ 9, we have no excuse for not paying a visit.

    Within minutes a steaming hot bowl of curry seafood noodles appears before you, rich and satisfying like nothing else. Seafood such as squids, clams, mussels, fish slices and prawns fill the bowl to the brim that you can hardly see the noodles. A little unctuous, but there’s not denying that the creamy rich broth is very flavourful.

    The most sought after broth after the santan laden curry broth would be the fiery red tom yam. Of course, for non spicy offering you can opt for clear broth. The broth is nothing exceptional with the obligatory spicy, sour and slightly sweet taste.

    We find it to be slightly overrated, you know when people rant and rave about the place and you set your bar of expectation higher and eventually it leads to disappointment.

      We have tried their Segambut outlet sometime ago the tomyam thing and found it :

      1. ridiculously overpriced
      2. tastes awfully heavy of assam
      confirming your theory 100 % !

      this place is an Xcellent showpiece / study of an immaculately lousy product but divine marketing success …

      Don’t u just hate it when prices raised due to popularity… hmm.. and then the standard went down to the the mass amount of ppl flocking to the restaurant.. oh well, i guess that’s just the demand and supply cycle lol.

    • Kenny says:

      Hmm.. wif tat kinda amount of ingredient, and population, no wonder the price is so over-ed

    • Big Boys Oven says:

      when i went to KL few years ago, friend brought me to this most ulu place, I think it should be segambut and i wonder if it is the same one.

      we sat upstairs because there was air con, but after eating the noodles, u feel very very hot! haha…

      feel like having some now, since it is raining and cold!

      I tried both the SS2 and Segambut outlet. Got to say, do go to Segambut outlet, somehow, it tastes much better and more seafood. But it is overpriced! What to do? Popular oledi ma.
