Wantan Mee @ Old Klang Road

27 03 2011

One of the quirky thing about Malaysia food is that the best food are often found at run down places. A good example would be this particular Wantan noodle stall which is located along Old Klang Road. From afar, the stall will not appeal those who are looking for a comfortable and hygiene place to dine. But the place is crowded just about every night which is a tell tale sign of the popularity of this stall.

I have never been an ardent fan of Char Siew (barbecued pork) until I tasted Meng Kee Char Siew. That is when I started paying more attention to the barbecued pork served whenever I order Wanton noodle. Suffice to say, the barbecued pork at this place was really appetizing (and I dare say, one of the better ones I have eaten so far).

My recommendation is to order the “pun fei sau” (50% fat 50% lean) meat. The soft fatty texture blends very nicely with the lean meat which will most certainly delight your taste bud.

A small plate costs (RM 5.50) which is cheap considering that this is one of the better char siew I have tried. The outer layer is nicely barbecued without overly burnt. The char siew was flavoursome enough to be eaten without the noodle!

And speaking about the noodle, the Wantan mee  (RM 4.50) was also good. I notice that the stall owner prepare each plate of wanton mee individually (even during peak hours) to ensure that the taste is consistent.

The noodle was springy and does not have that ‘kan sui’ (alkaline water) smell. The sauce was thick and black and had enough taste to it.

And of course, the char siew which came with the noodle made it ever tastier!

The Wantan (dumplings) were also good.

The skin was thin and the combination of shrimp and pork meat in its fillings (although the pepper taste was slightly stronger) made it pretty decent enough.

If you are looking for a place to eat good Wantan noodle, do stop by this place. It is located opposite of BHP petrol station. There is also a ‘tai chow’ stall at the same place. Highly recommended.

Fried Pan Mee @ Jalan Sepadu

23 01 2011

When I first heard about a famous fried pan mee stall at Jalan Sepadu, I knew I had to give it a try. Pan mee or flat flour noodle are commonly prepared with soup or ‘kon lou’ (dry) style version. So how does fried pan mee taste like?

A small plate of fried pan mee costs RM 5.00 each while a slightly larger service costs RM 1 extra.

The fried pan mee looks a lot like hokkien mee and taste almost the same too.

The only exception is the texture of the noodle which is flatter and springy.

To be honest, I enjoyed eating it a lot. It was moist, has the right amount of dark soya sauce taste.

If you fancy pan mee with a twist in its style of cooking, then give this place a try. I was told that the stall is actually more famous for its loh mee. Well, there is always a next time….

Hawker stall @ Jalan Klang Lama

31 08 2010

Every time when I drive along Old Klang Road, I can’t help but to notice scores of people eating at a make shift stall opposite the BHP Petrol station near to the turning to Kuchai Lama from Old Klang Road. Hence, I decided to try out the food one evening just to find out for myself if the food are worth eating. There are actually two stalls there. One is selling ‘Tai Chow’ while the other, Wanton Noodle.

First up, I ordered ‘Wat Tan Hor’ or Flat Rice Noodle with Egg which costs RM 6 per plate.

One of the main criteria for a good plate of Wat Tan Hor is the smoothness of the noodle.

Here, the dish did not disappoint at all. In fact, the noodle has ample ‘Wok Hei’ which made it so tasty. The prawns were also fresh.

Not forgetting, the slices of pork…

The Wanton Noodle (RM 5) was equally good. Slices of barbecued pork complement the dish very well.

Although not as good as Meng Kee Wanton Noodle, it was nevertheless still delicious.

The two stalls are opened from evening till late at night. Good place for people hunting for food at the wee hours of the night.
