famous hokkien mee


Well, alot of outstation folks come here to hunt for one item, particularly one food stall which is the famous Old Green house Hokkien Mee (prawn noodle) that is known to many travelers. The specialty is that you can add ingredient from the sides which makes them quite overrated and also very expensive. I come here for different reason and here is my Top 5 street food to order at Old Green House Kopitiam.

  1. Curry Mee

It is hard to find very nice curry mee during late night and this is the stall that give you the top flavour. Love the mild sweet coconut broth and the best is their special cook chili paste, which is one of the most important ingredient for the noodle. However this stall is getting more expensive too.

2. Yee Sang Kai Chuck or known as Chicken Chuk (Porridge)

If you are looking for something more light, then this Chicken Chuk or porrdige is a must order. Silky smooth texture and add on with steam chicken with bean sprout, is a great combination. indeed give me a satisfied tummy. Alot other diners also just ordered their chicken only without the porridge.

From this stall, you hunt for 2 dish.

3. Char Hor Fun

One of a rare item that will go extinct soon which is this Char Hor Fun or another term for it is also known as “Tua Pan”. Still one of my favourite stall for this as most of my favourite place already no longer operating. This uncle still fried the noodle with wok hei and even his staff that cooks it, is also top notch. Gravy is spot on, as you need to add on an egg which is fresh egg that tops on it.

4. Ee Foo Mee

Similiar gravy by different noodle texture. You wont find this noodle in KL hawker as the noode is being fried once in dry version then cook the gravy seperately and bath upon it. Still my favourite.

5. Bak Kut Teh

Operate by the same stall owner as both of them are siblings. The elder brother is operating the Bak Kut Teh Stall. You get to choose the pork parts that you like or you can order it by mix everything which including pork spare parts. Yumz! Soup base here is slightly more pungent in herbs taste yet the fragrant after soy sauce taste is what I like. You get to choose yam rice or white rice. Their signature is Yam Rice that usually finish quite early.

This is the usual 5 item that I would order whenever I am back which also mark my first “makan” destination upon reaching Penang at night. Wan Tan Mee is so so. Char Koey Teow is not too bad but not my preference. Dim sum stall which is decent but quite expensive.

Uptown Damansara is certainly famous for a place whereby no parking. Not only that, as recently there are alot of eateries that open in this area. Not to neglact those are well establish such as their famous Hokkien Mee in this area. Restaurant Damansara Uptown Hokkien Mee is one of a signature place to be when you are craving for this. I usually dine the other outlet and this is my first time coming here after a while.

Right after 8pm, you can see they are starting to expand their tables and chairs to the road side and as it gets latter at night, more and more people will flock to this eatery. It is even worst when comes to weekend as many clubbers will stop here for their supper.

In their preparation of ingredients, they have already prepare mountain high ingredients to cater for all this hungry folks.

uptown (3)

Imagine the noodles are being stir fried in this massive customize cooking pot & stove.

The roast duck do look tempting and decided to give it a try. However there are others that are better. @ RM 18 which is pretty expensive.

Here is their famous Stir Fried Hokkien Mee (KL version) as we Penangnites call it ‘Tua Pui Mee’ (fat Noodle) @ RM 7. Quite a decent plate that stir with dark sauce and filled with wok hei. The difference for this noodle compare to the other outlet is that the dark soy sauce taste slightly more sweet and fragrant compare to the other. 

uptown (7)

For chicken wings I love the other outlet better.

uptown (8)

Their Kam Hiong Clams was a let down. 

uptown (9)

The trick is to add in their homemade chili paste into it and for the pork lard, you need to add in RM0.50 more for it. Its not crispy and fragrant.

For both outlet, there are flaws here and there and overall food range they have, I prefer the other outlet. However for this outlet, I prefer their Stir Fried Hokkien Mee.
