Tucked in the far corner of Kuala Lumpur, there’s a place known as Segambut. I looked it up on Google and found that Segambut actually covers a much bigger area. Did you you know that from the high-end condominiums of Mont Kiara and Sri Kiara to the middle-class areas of Taman Sri Segambut and Bandar Manjalara, and the rural areas of Segambut Dalam and Kampung Sungai Penchala are all under the Segambut constituency? I was like … wow, I never knew. So much for my geographical and political knowledge.

ANYWAY, I shall bring you back to what I know best. Located at Segambut Utara (Segambut North) is a little township sprawled with small/medium industrial lots. And amidst these workshops and factories, is Restoran Yu Ai … a very popular spot for their Seafood Noodle. This place is actually a stone throw away from Mont Kiara/Solaris if you’re familiar with that area.

Yu Ai is a simple food eatery that serves only what they do best which is seafood noodle and their new menu, fish head noodle if you fancy that. Having been in the business for more than 11 years, they family recipe of the much acclaimed seafood noodle has been a favorite for many.

When you step into the outlet, you’ll be greeted by rows of seafood noodle condiments displayed along the entrance, followed by gigantic pots of soup bases. Plain, Curry and Tom Yam. And those are exactly the choices of order you can make. Perhaps this might help :

Step 1 : Choose your preferred soup base. Plain, Curry or Tom Yam
Step 2 : Choose your noodle type. Mee, Meehoon or Kuay Teow
Step 3 : Finally choose your choice of seafood. There’s prawn, fish, oyster, cuttlefish and clam.
Step 4 : Determine the size you want depending on your appetite (try small if it’s your 1st time)

Here’s a little hint, if your spicy intake level is moderate, go for curry. And if you do choose tom yam, try not to speak too often when you’re eating. You never know when you might get choked over the strong, thick taste of the tom yam. I knew … speaking from experience…. if you know what I mean.

You can also mix and match the choices of seafood, for example I only go for fish and prawns since I don’t exactly fancy the rest.

The price in Yu Ai isn’t exactly the cheapest in town and in fact, it has been steadily increasing over the years. A large bowl of seafood noodle will set you back by RM17.00 while the small one cost RM15.00. Might be a little pricey for many but if the place is still pack during meal times, who’s complaining?

Budget aside, I don’t mind visiting them occasionally and I love bringing my friends visiting from abroad to this place.

As mentioned, some might think this place is expensive while some thing otherwise. Here’s what some others wrote about Yu Ai.

    This restaurant has been here for the longest time… but I was introduced to this place in the year 2002!!! Back then, it used to cost only about RM12 for a big bowl. It’s so expensive now 🙁
    Have you ever considered mixing the curry and tomyum broth??? Believe me.. it’s as good! Well, this is exactly what I always order everytime I went there. And it’s so freaking hot to dine inside and outside… unless you go upstairs where the air-cond is… lol!!!
    they have another outlet in PJ SS2… less crowded.. whether it’s human or car

  6. Vivien Said,

    had it maybe a year ago, find the soup is just so-so, might be MSG, so thirsty… and the price is really expensive, for seafood noodle, fatty sang in Kepong is quite ok, just a normal stall though
