Seafood curry noodle- Restoran Yu Ai

I was in Segambut Utara to run some chores and decided to have an early lunch there! Restoran Yu Ai came to mind.

RM19 for this big bowl. RM17 for small.

It looked really great but tasted just okay. The curry was nice, thick and aromatic, but strongly dependent on curry powder, and at the time of eating, I suspected heavy usage of MSG too.

And of course, as expected, I was very very thirsty for a few hours after eating this bowl of noodle!

There were also fried salmon fillets, small sized lala clams, small oysters and cuttle fish in the bowl.

The curry gravy is quite closed to this one IMO.

For RM19, you get only 4 small/medium small, not very fresh prawns. The heads were almost falling off, and parts of the heads were dark in color already.

You can see how small the lala clams were from the image above.

Each bowl is cooked individually.

The chili was quite good.

I went there only because I haven't been there for ages. I know I won't be going back there anytime soon. It's just way over-rated and over-priced. You can buy much cheaper curry noodle from here and add your own seafood!

I might check out Sin Kee just a few doors away though.
