penang hokkien mee in pj


Penang folks in KL, there is one good news to share as the Famous Penang 888 Hokkien Mee had open their first outlet outside Penang. This stall is rated as one of the top three best Penang Prawn Noodle or Penang Hokkien mee had opened its door at Kota Damansar, Pj. It was a random stumble when I was heading to my usual Chilli Pan Mee place and they just operate just about 2 weeks.

[Update 28.2.2018: realize that the shop no longer operating after i went the third round today – after operating just less than 3 months – SAD]

As manage to speak to the owner, as this is a collaboration of the original 888 hokkien mee son and his best friend to open up this shop and it is run with the original recipe from Penang.

Menu is pretty straight forward.

If you are here during lunch time, it is pretty pack for first 2 weeks in operation.

The smell and the look is certainly on par with Penang standard where I felt that the broth is lacking its sweetness compare to the original in Penang. Loh Mee soup is on point where it is thick enough and it will be my next aim to order both.

Since they are rather new, I tried their Prawn Mee with Siew Yuk and siew yuk is not bad.

For yin yeong or mix soup, I added on their garlic base gravy to enhance the soup taste, just to my liking

Loh Mee is not bad. Quite on point to the one in Penang. Soup base is thick enough and pork slices are just nice.

After that the owner ask about feedback and manage to find out that why the broth is lacking because the broth boiling process started late whereby 8 am and open for business at 11.30am, as compare to Penang they boil the soup from 9am and start business at 5pm hence the thickness of the soup base is there. The owner advise to swing by from 3pm onwards to enjoy the best taste of the soup.

Will definately drop by again after 3pm to enjoy my pippin hot bowl of Penang Hokkien Mee in KL. Best of all, it is easy to find parking during weekdays as you just park inside Sunway Nexis basement carpark and just walk out, as the parking is free for first 2 hours.

Back to basic is always nice, especially when manage to find some nice street food related to Penang Food. Did pop by here couple of times whenever I am craving for simple bowl of Penang Loh Mee or Hokkien mee as got influence by KYSpeaks with his constant visit to this place.

Choon Prawn Mee is tuck in this busiest food district in Taman Paramount during day time as Kedai Kopi O&S is one of the busiest along the stretch.

This concept is quite similar to Penang Green House Hokkien Mee where you can choose to add on or a mix combination of ingredients into your noodle.

I must give credit to their Duck Meat Koey Teow Soup which is quite near to authentic Penang version. Simple clear soup that pack with flavour and I am not a fish ball lover, however this is pretty good as its smooth and bouncy. Fried Garlic oil do add a bit of punch into the soup.

Loh Mee is one of a authentic version that serve in a thick soupy base in dark sauce. Some might like it some might not. However is one of a food that will soon to extinct for a Penang street food. Add in garlic, and their home made chili, definately it would not run too far.

Soup is thick enough to ensure its Penang version.

Another style to enjoy our Penang Hokkien Prawn mee is to get a Ying Yeong Soup whereby Prawn soup and loh mee soup base mix together.

Its a place to get a decent Penang hawker food.
