Pork Ball Noodles 豬肉丸粉, Jalan Imbi, Kuala Lumpur

Located at the corner coffee shop on Jalan Imbi (right opposite the Honda showroom) is the best pork ball noodles 豬肉丸粉 in town. All the imitation ones you can at the shopping malls and food courts are just crap. I had to come here and do a review myself to see if they're still good or they too have forgone quality just because business is good. (by the way, they have an outlet in Lot 10 too)
One thing to note is that the owners of the stall are pretty temperamental. They probably have mood swings too. Sometimes they will be really nice like "Handsome, what do you feel like eating today?" or "What do you want? NO MORE HOR FUN!!"
Anyway, got the usual order. Mine is the dry Hor Fun ( 河粉 with pork balls and roasted sausages (燒腸). Boss had hers in soup minus the spring onions. 
RM8 bucks a pop! Now that is not cheap. Dirty old coffee shop and you pay premium for very normal hawker food. AIYA!

Check out those sausages. Still good. Used to be better but heck, can't get it anywhere else now.

The pork balls here are really good. Chewy and tender. It has this bouncy feel to it and the moment you sink your teeth into it, the juice just flows out. Salivating now.

Soup's good, less MSG. Combination of the pork bits, absolutely fabulous.
The hor fun here is cooked really good plus topped with the flavored pork bits, YES YES YES! It is so good.

I must say that the price for a bowl of noodles has gone up by 50% since I first had it years back. Quality and taste is still there plus the attitude. It is a must to come try it at least once.
Lastly, I am still wondering why they are called pork balls when they looks nothing like balls.

Points - 1.5 (1.5 was taken away due to the price. RM8 bucks WTF?)

Honestly, its ok and very overrated not to mention frickin expensive for what it is but HEY WHAT HELL, BIG DEMAND leads to higher prices (not to mention higher rentals in the coffee shop)

Looks good, but honestly, I can't bring myself to pay RM8 a pop to sit in a coffee shop. That is pretty steep pricing...

Gav, come March, I will bring you there. Am sure you will like it.
Hey General, yes I agree that it is overrated and expensive but it's pretty good compared to the ones you get else where. I used to like the one in PJ State but I've not been there in ages. Will go try again.
Penny, come think of it, it is damn expensive to sweat it out in a coffee shop.
