kl hokkien mee


I still remember till today that my first Hokkien Mee in KL was a shocking moment for me with a twist and quarrel with the hawker worker. Hokkien mee in KL is very different from the ones in Penang. Ah Yap Hokkien Mee in Sentul was introduce by a friend that I should give here a try. Apparently this place been operating more than 40 years and from their regular to seem them bringing their customer grandson.

Menu is quite extensive as they do have other stir fried dishes. Love the decor of this place as it seems alot of antique to look at. The server which is a old uncle happily explain to me as he had been there for a few moons already.

Some of the antiques are as old as Qing Dynasty. From the table, stool, delivery lunch box, old ginseng and many others.

The signature here is their Hokkien Noodle. A style of their own. Topped with loads for pork lard to my liking. It is fresh and crispy. The after taste also quite different as the sauce is slightly more thick, flavourful and pack with wok hei.

Not your usual noodle texture as I find this slightly more chewy or springy to my liking.

This is one of the item must have as I find that the Stir Fried lala is very interesting. Not only it is good but unique with its own taste. You get to taste hint of the chili powder, fragrant mild taste of lime after you squeeze on top of it. Didnt overcook too. Perfect as it is! Squeeze of the lime do really give a slight acidic it needs to balance freshness of it off.

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.

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.

For chicken wings I love the other outlet better.

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.
