Yeap Noodles 叶面 @ Georgetown, Penang

The passion for culinary has spurred the Yeap Family into inventing their own noodles, and they have bestowed their noodles as Yeap Noodles (Kwong Wah Yit Poh). Starting as a small business 10 years ago in Armenian Street and then moved to Transfer Road, their business has been a roller coaster ride with ups and downs, before settled at current pre-war building at Chulia Street. 

The appearance of the noodles suggest it has no difference to any ramen you could find in the market but you will be proved wrong after tasted them. They have a variety of noodles, ranging from original, spinach, spicy, peppermint, turmeric, oat and presently they are have invented charcoal noodles. Great thing is all their noodles are handmade and they integrated that particular ingredients into the noodles. Combination of types of noodles and dishes have been prefixed to ensure the best taste for customers, though special request can be made.

Spicy Yeap Noodles

The moment we have the menu we knew Spicy Yeap Noodles with minced pork, pork balls and prawn ball (RM6.50) will be our choice. We were warned by the chef during the ordering that the exorbitant spiciness is not tolerable by usual patrons, and this warning was indeed not baseless. 

Spicy Yeap Noodles were served piping hot, bedded in their home made ma la spicy sauce. The steam was clearly visible at the moment it was served, and this has added to the severity of spicy burning sensation on the tongue and lips. Their minced pork is unique in their own way, and it is unlikely you could find the similar dish in other places. Pregnant ladies, asthmatic or gastric patients should avoid ordering this meal. 

According to the second generation Yeap, their customers have feedback that their spicy noodles were not spicy at all initially. Hence Yeap mother has invested some quality time to make a spicy version of spicy noodles and ma la spicy sauce. Presently, the spicy noodles and sauce are being complained exorbitant spicy to the extent cooking the sauce in the kitchen has caused unpleasant smell to customers. What a contradicting situation! 




Tom Yam Yeap Noodles Squid (RM7.50) comes with peppermint Yeap Noodles. It tasted a tad spicy with a mixture of sour sensation, a true reflection of Chinese version tomyam. It tasted blunt to me though as my papillae might have been numbed by spicy noodles but Shirleen mentioned it was just nice.


Their own cooked winter melon with longan (RM2.50) and roselle (RM2.50) are essential to neutralise the spiciness. We enjoyed the winter melon drink as it was full with condiments. 





They are still actively into researching new noodles, with the latest creation being charcoal and they might come out with more when the creativity strikes. Currently they have a second branch at Rangoon Road, cater more to local market and have a wider range of noodles such as satay noodles while the main outlet at Chulia Street caters more for tourist market. Kudos to their friendly service as well.
