I went to this Hailam Mee Restaurant with George and Kai Ching which is located nearby Kai Ching’s house this noon for my brunch. It’s lunch, actually :)
This is not the first time we’re here. The special about this shop: It’s packed with customers during lunch hour, even it’s located at an area which we refer as “hidden”. It’s surrounded by housing estates and the route to get there is confusing.
The shop is full with patrons as you can see. The shop serve halal cuisine. When we entered, there are 2 groups of Indian customers, a few Malays and the rest are Chinese. We placed our orders and the waitress told us that we’ll need to wait a bit since there are lots of customers. Ermm….
Our order arrive finally! (Waited for about 1/2 hour) Kai Ching’s order, Hailam Noodle with Chicken & Bitter Gourd, the dry version. If I’m not mistaken, I think it costs RM5.50. Consist of minced chicken meat, “choy sum” (sweet mustard), bitter gourd and lots of garlic! I didn’t taste it but they say it’s good, just the colour not dark enough :P
Actually, I don’t really know the difference between Hailam Mee and Hokkien Mee, probably because the two dishes use the same noodle (tai lok mee)?
Final dish, Fried Vermicelli, “wet” version. George say it’s nice cos he tried it before but I find it a bit plain and has the taste of raw vermicelli. Price, unknown :P There are other Hailam Mee available such as Shrimp and Petai Hailam Noodle, Shrimp Hailam Noodle etc. Overall, it’s food are not bad, but I would advise that you go earlier. Easier to get a table and the chefs tend to cook the food in rush when there’s many customers (that’s what the waitress told us! heh…)
