Canoodling, Bangsar Village II, Malaysia








As with all of the BIG Group restaurants, Canoodling is style laden with a fun clean design. Well lit and bedecked with cooking utensils, lamps and a giant chalkboard it is simply a pleasant place to be. Serving a mix of, you guessed it, noodles, you'll fulfill your carbohydrate needs in one sitting. We tried a number of soupy noodle dishes, one of which pictured above was the Lam Mee. There were two plates though in particular that will keep me returning. The first is the Garden Greens Salad - seaweed, edamame, assorted nuts, cherry tomatoes and mixed leaves laced generously with a sweet dressing. You might consider asking for the dressing on the side if you like to have a little more control over consumed calories. The second highlight was the Canoodling Oodles of Noodles - roll up your own wraps of minced chicken, coriander and spicy green sauce in either crispy lettuce leaves or silky plush tender noodle squares. It's definitely a place to revisit to further explore the menu but I'd also return just to order the Canoodling Oodles of Noodles - try wrapping your tongue around it five times fast :-)

  3. I'd heard mixed reviews of the spot too. Couldn't resist the entrance though and it was packed! Did love the Oodles of Noodles, but found Lam Mee to be very average.

  4. Gotta give them credit for a cool concept! I can't recall whether they do weekly specials. I know their menu's pretty impressive already, but it'd be great if they also brought us some lesser-known but equally delicious Asian noodle recipes just to complement what they're now serving :D

    1. I do like their designs. I'm a sucker for presentation. Yep, there were weekly specials too. If I recall the day we were there I think it was a Laksa for around 11RM.

    1. Yes, the sweet dressing will certainly disguise the leaves if you're not a lettuce fan.

    1. Simple Person: Yes, the first food pic is the lam mee. Not oily but with that thick corn flour clear sauce that accompanies many Chinese dishes.

  7. There's nothing more filling than a big bowl of soup noodles.
