Nameless Hokkien Mee @ Maluri, Cheras

7 days more to go before Chinese New Year and I got my first early “ang pow” today. :)

Last Saturday, after being told repeatedly by a friend about how long the queue was at a particular Hokkien mee stall in Maluri, we decided to go and try it out. It’s located near the junction of the PGRM building.

Homemade chilli paste is a must have accompaniment when having Hokkien mee. This stall also have other type of fried noodle such as braised yee mee, deep fried yee mee with eggy gravy, kuey teow in eggy gravy and Hailam mee.

The Hokkien mee arrived first on our table (RM 5.00 for a single portion). The noodle was well tossed with crispy lards, pork slices, squids and shredded cabbage in dark soy sauce but sad to say, it lacks the wok hei and taste pretty bland too.

Look quite interesting, the Hailam mee (RM 5.00 for single portion if I’m not mistaken) was served in a deep bowl with a special gravy and topped with julienne cucumbers, onions, deep fried shallots and chopped cili padi. Basically, the cook uses the same noodle as the Hokkien mee, the thick yellow mee (tai lok mee) for this dish. Again, the dish lacks wok hei but I enjoy slurping the gravy. Imagine this: the non spicy laksa broth minus the fish. :P

And lastly, we also had the common wat tan hor (kuey teow in eggy gravy, RM 5.00 for single portion). Also lacked wok hei but the gravy was flavourful nonetheless.

Prices was reasonable but too bad the food wasn’t up to its reputation as mentioned by my friend. I think some of the dai chow near my house and office cooks better ones.

    Mama Bok: Yeah, a mere disappointment.

    BBO: Eat what there?

    Ai Wei: My friend said that too but while we were eating, the gas seller brought few cylinders of gases over. :S

    Jian: Shoot what type of video? Eh, no one know where the operator moved to? Too bad. No lah, Hokkien mee is the fried one. :)

    Celine: Yep, “kung fu” is a must. :P

    I heard the stall moved to some place near airport. Aiyoh…how to find?

    Thats why people call hokkien char in penang…lolz…hokkien mee refers to prawn noodle. When I first say the title of the post I tot you tried prawn noodle in KL XD which i think you havent so far.

  4. i remember this place..they use charcoal to cook..but apparently their stds have dropped by a mile..some say they r trying to serve more plates in a shorter time to fill up the demand..

    so its been years since i ate…

  5. Jian: I see. Eh… I don’t know Penangites call Hokkien mee as prawn mee >_<
    Haha… cos I don’t eat prawns, correct? :P

    Precious Pea: Oooo.. good good!

    LotsOfCravings: I didn’t see any charcoal that night but gas cylinders. Maybe they replaced charcoal with gas.

  6. yeah i remember…oh not many know about it…haha…i noe got 1 stall very famous but forgot where ady…petaling street i think…

  8. wok hei is very important for hokkien mee…but not easy to find a good one lar nowadays…sigh..the one you posted looks ok…but i thought the wat dan hor looks watery leh…hehe…

  9. Jian: The Petaling street one was mentioned in The Star’s guide book too. Yeah, ang pao mali!

    vkeong: Ops, seems like gotta change the name next time. Haha, use tissue lar.

    Nic: Yea, hard to find a good one. The wat dan hor ah… not watery but the chef added too much broth so the gravy was overflowing!
