|Bukit Mertajam | Alma Thirty Nine (39) Kopitiam - Shou Mian|
|Wednesday, 20 October 2010 00:00|
Popular among the locals, the recently opened restaurant offers a better atmosphere equipped with air-conditional dining area, marble/wooden tables and chairs. Aside from the infrastructure upgrade, the menu was revised with more choices including appetizers, snacks, desserts and assortment of drinks.
Nevertheless, Shou Mian that is their signature dish still takes the center stage among the entrees. It remains as the main reason that patrons keep going back and again.
Of Chinese origin, Shou Mian or literally translated as 'handmade noodle' at Alma 39 is served in a bowl of savory soup with shredded chicken, a slice of hard boiled egg, shiitake mushroom, bean sprouts, some chopped green onion and sprinkle of deep-fried shallots. Unless one does not fancy the odor of shrimp paste (belachan), the soup would taste better if the shrimp-paste ground chili is added and stirred into the soup. Fresh chopped cilantro on the other hand would help to neutralize the marine odor.
Apart from their signature dish - Shou Mian, Alma 39 also serves other entrees namely chicken rice, barbecue pork rice, pork ribs noodle, duck noodle and Nasi Lemak. Kopitiam-style breakfast menu such as toasted bread, yam cakes, chai kueh (steamed vegetable dumplings), loh mai kai (glutinous rice with chicken) and bao (steamed bun) with assorted fillings are also offered.
In short, Alma 39 had transformed from a plain Shou Mian stall to serving a good array of Malaysian-favorite breakfast/lunch. The price of Shou Mian is slightly higher compares to previous location. Yet it is still
reasonable taking into account the atmosphere, service and food quality.
