Humble Review: 高渊 (利) 猪肉粉 Lye Lee Noodle House @ The One, Bayan Lepas, Penang

Clear soup noodles has been one of my favourite food since small. I'm sure our parents would cook or buy us either clear soup noodles or congee whenever we fell sick,that's why you are supposingly not to be strange towards it right? Moreover, we are now heading to the end of the year where rainy season occurs whereas monsoon season at the east side of the peninsula. Hence, cool weather could be expected to experience at slightly lower temperature and this kind of food is absolutely a great option to choose!

 Lye Lee Noodle House is originally from Juru, a district of Seberang Prai, Penang. Upon receiving greater support from customers day by day, they had finally set up a branch at Bayan Baru area in the island. This well-known chinese restaurant continues to get huge responsiveness from the residents here. The main group of patronage goes to customers with families and white-collars.

No fancy design inside the restaurant, all simple tables and chairs.
It is always full house during meal hours, no reservation is required as the flow of patron is high in liquidity. I had my three times of patronage at different hours and I would say peak dinner hour was a little bit disappointing dining experience I've had among all. Know why? Read it till the end.

 As usual, let me present to you the menu
Pork noodle (Clear soup) with a few of varieties to select
Price Range: RM 5 - 6
Add-on: RM 2

Tomyam hardcore fan might consider to try out tomyam noodle soup served here
Or perhaps Spicy & Sour Noodle Soup
Price is as low as RM 8
Add-on are available to make you more satisfied with your meal as well!

What about Claypot Porridge to soothe your tastebuds and also your tummy?
This section is mainly for at least 2 pax and above. Prefer personal one?
There you go to refer the menu as below

 There are seven type of personal porridge served and the highest one they charge at only RM 15, quite reasonable for seafood porridge.

Targetting at most of us do enjoy to be indulged in steamboat, Lye Lee also has similar kind of food to excite your tastebuds!
Fish Head Steamboat sounds very nice!!!

 And there are lotssss of side order/add on to pick.

 Few choices of A la Carte that priced at RM 4 to RM 5

For selection of drinks, I always go for self-prepared drinks like herbal tea or chrysanthemum

Aha, these three on special laminated menu must be a surprise to first time patronage, especially.
I've never tried any of these before but it's not a bad choice to fix your cravings for maybe pork leg rice? Just in case if you miss your previous trip to Thailand, haha!

 Alright, no more menu but food.

Silver Needle Noodle (commonly known as 'bee thai bak')
with minced pork and fish ball (clear soup)
RM 5
  Looks simple but hey, it might be quite warm to consume when you are seeking for some light taste of food or maybe during cool weather.

 Bihun in spicy and sour soup with fried fish
RM 8
This is prone to sourness with just a thin flavour of spiciness you could taste at the end of your sipping on the soup. A few pieces of fried fish act as a bonus to this bowl of noodle, too.

 Bihun with pork and meat balls (clear soup)
RM 6
To be honest, I was very delighted the minutes I saw my order served on the table!
This bowl was superb! Satisfying portion is the main point and the generous amount of vegetables excite me as well! That's how the soup taste simply sweet and nice.

The signature chili sauce that you wouldn't want to miss out.
It is just mild spicy, great to have fishball to dip on some before eating.

However, I was a little bit disappointed on my last patronage on the past August. We were there at peak dinner hour, so it was expected to face some order traffic jam from kitchen, that was certainly fine but we didn't expect the food served on that time were odd in terms of taste, presentation and portion.

I had a total of three times patronage on this restaurant, the food served is various in terms of outlook and taste especially on my last patronage.

Bihun with minced pork and fish ball (clear soup)
RM 5

Omg, the presentation look so much cincai than my previous patronage ( as shown on previous photos on the thread )

 Bihun with pork and meatball (clear soup)
RM 6
Another 'cincai' presentation of food

Both of the two photos as above did not taste as good as previously, the 'mild sweetness' from vegetables is hard to taste from the soup, specifically. Not sure if it was the little mistakes in food preparation made on the day or what, I was kind of awkward actually as I suggested this restaurant to my friend after her working hour...

Last one item to comment,

Fried Fish ( 4 pcs/ RM 3 )
It was quite oily which is not to our own liking, fairly taste anyway.

This is solely my personal review and dining experience that I had, it might be vary from time to time. However, I'm still recommend you to have at least one dining over there because the food is pretty good in overall.
