I’m going to show you something that I had for lunch some time last week.
Woohoo! Fish noodles soup with white broth! This is something rarely found in Penang, so I was glad to discover a new place to have it! Yes!!!
Om nom nom nom!!!
Or… was it?
Unfortunately, this was a case of [it looks better than it tastes]. You know, when we went into the restaurant, we were overwhelmed with a rather pleasing aroma associated with that wonderful milk based broth. The aroma itself was already very promising.
And then when we saw how glorious our bowl of noodles were served, we got pretty excited. Understandably so, especially when the broth exuded a nice fragrance…
Then we took a spoonful of noodles and chucked it into our mouths, together with the broth.
And then we got confused. The broth was… bland. Utterly bland. I thought my tongue was broken, but I quick look at my lunch mate and I noticed the same perplexed face.
Damn, this is disappointing. This is totally the opposite of those stinky tofu experience. With stinky tofu, it is disgusting stench but once you put it into your mouth, heaven! This one gives you wonderful aroma but once you put it into your mouth, underwhelming and disappointing.
Which is why I’m not going to tell you what this restaurant is and where it is located in…. 🙄
