Yip AU, East Victoria Park

PERTH | The art of making southern Chinese zhu sheng noodles the traditional way is a dying one. One family in Perth is keeping the traditional alive, however, at new Victoria Park restaurant, Yip AU.

Chef and noodle master Erich Wong opened Yip Au late last year with his wife Chee Ling Low and son Everson. Named after Erich’s dad, who taught Erich how to make zu sheng main, you’ll find Erich and Everson in the temperature controlled noodle room (visible from the restaurant) bouncing up and down on thick bamboo poles, turning dough into some of the best, springiest noodles in town.

The unassuming 60 seat restaurant gets busy, and there’s usually a small to large line. The lines moves fast, though, and the food at Yip Au is well worth the wait.

On the menu, you’ll find things like Malaysian laksa, chee cheong fun, and mee pok. The latter, a dish of Chaoshan origin is a particular stand out. The version here is served ‘dry’ with thin flat noodles cooked chili, oil, vinegar, and light soy sauce. They’re se red with a bowl of fish ball soup, and a bowl of minced chicken soup. Mix it a together and it’s something special.

If you want to do your own thing, there’s the option to build your own bowl. Your choice of thick or thin noodles, a dry (with light or dark sauce) or soup (clear or laksa) base, and your choice of several toppings. Things like beef rendang, chicken curry, and pork trotters with pork belly.

Beyond noodles, there’s also fantastic sides like fried or soup pork and prawn wontons, fried or soup veggie, pork and prawn dumplings, and fried crab claws. To drink, it’s classic hot and cold Malaysian drinks like teh tarik, kopi, and Milo.
