Ulu Yam Loh Mee (Braised vinegar noodles soup) 烏魯音卤麵

Whenever we came down from Genting highland trip, usually we will detour to Ulu Yam Lama for a good Loh Mee, I think you might also did the same way. Here is a video talk about the origin of Ulu Yam Loh Mee, check it out if you know Chinese. Loh Mee is quite common in Tai Chou (noodles stall) in KL and Selangor, but Ulu Yam Loh Mee has slight difference as they pre-added dark vinegar into the soup.
