(Hokkien Mee) Mei Yen Restaurant @ Paramount Garden, Petaling Jaya

Monday, April 6, 2009

There are plenty of hawker stalls/restaurants selling hokkien mee around the town. Estimated about hundreds of stalls serving thousands of patrons in Klang Valley alone. So this Mei Yen Restaurant is one of the famous hokkien mee stall back in the old days. It boasts of their famous ‘Hokkien Char‘ of Hokkien Mee and they did live up to that for quite some time. They have been in operation for well over a decade and still using traditional charcoal fire to cook all their dishes. For those who are familiar with PJ Paramount area, this restaurant is not really hard to find. It’s the only Chinese restaurant that’s located in the alley of two rolls of shoplots along Caltex petrol station. The boss is quite friendly and service is pretty fast like food is served no longer than 10 minutes.

Their hokkien mee is coated with slightly sticky, savory black sauce and loaded with generous bits of crunchy pork lard ("Chu Yau Char). With plenty of "wok hei", the noodle texture was just right and tangy. However, Despite the generous lashing of lardy goodness, the noodle is very oily...so it's not that healthy. The chili is quite good too…..
The following is the “Wa Tan Hor Fun”, it is pretty good and the sauce is really tasty. They use just the right amount of corn starch and egg mixture.
Apart from Hokkien mee, this place also serves fried oyster, fried carrot cake and etc. For those who love carrot cake, you should try their fried petai carrot cake. It is very creative and combination between the two is very tangy and spicy….nice…
Then the vege “yau mak”, stir-fried with plenty of chopped garlic. All in all, it’s delicious but yet again it’s very oily.
