Malaysians can look forward to artist collaborations and parties nationwide to sample this latest addition to the ABSOLUT flavours family.

ABSOLUT passionately leads the creation of exceptional cocktails, bringing the cocktail culture in a new unexpected direction.

Village Sang Nyuk Noodle @ Pandan Jaya, KL

A few weeks back I discovered a friend of mine posted on Facebook about a Sang Nyuk Noodle shop in KL. I have always been craving for Sang Nyuk Mee ever since I moved to KL. Some of you who are not from Sabah might not be familiar with this noodle. It is almost as same as Mixed Pork Noodle, but in Sabah style. The meat slices are fresh, smoother and more tender. Sang Nyuk Mee literally means Raw Pork Noodle.



Village Sang Nyuk Noodle is a shop opened by a chap from Tuaran, Sabah. He claims that they have a shop in Tuaran and this KL branch was opened just a few months back.
