Bab Noodle @ Millenia Walk
Bab Noodle is a nice little (well, not that little actually) family restaurant tugged amongst the row of restaurants at the open air parking space just opposite Conrad Hotel. It’s basically an Asian-themed place, selling a mish-mesh everything with Japanese, Korean, Thai and even Vietnamese influcence.
We ordered 2 dinner sets and 2 ala carte side dishes, since there was a 1-for-1 ala carte menu promotion going on. This is the Tori Katsu set.
Kimchi as a side dish. Told you its a mish-mesh” of everything Asian…
Tori Katsu aka breaded fried chicken. The portion used to be bigger but as a 1-for-1, we couldn’t resist.
Beef Sukiyaki. The raw egg is conventional used as a dip but we didn’t dare try for fear of Salmonella and other nasties.
Closeup on the Beef Sukiyaki. The beef slices were already pre-cooked. We thought it would be better if it was served raw and for us to cook it ourselves with the paper nabe. Then we found out why. The solid fuel provide was only sufficient to warm the paper nabe for a short while. It didn’t even bring the sukiyaki to a boil, let alone long enough to cook the beef. So much for wiping out Salmonella then…
Tori Teriyaki, the chicken was first pan-fried to give the skin a light crisp after which sweet and savoury sauce was drizzled over.
Tori Karaage set meal. The portion was quite generous but we found that there was a lot of skin hidden amidst the chunks of meat.

Set meals came with water melon as dessert.
We’d eaten here numerous times over the last couple of years and we feel that its affordable menu is the key factor to its survival amongst the various more haute restaurants along the same stretch. It was even cheaper in the past when they did not impose service charge. Since then it underwent several menu changes and ventured into korean and more Southeast Asian cuisines or created more fusion fishes. Innovation is really the only way to stay afloat.
