Restoran Ho Boh, Bandar Puteri Puchong

*Price for each individual dishes are not included here because I couldn’t find the receipt.

I recently read about a place dishing out very good Sarawak kolo mee in Taman Kinrara, Puchong from VKeong’s blog. I was very eager to try it, so during on weekend night, I suggested to WMW to check out the place. It turns out that the stall was not open… we’re not sure if it’s only opens for breakfast and lunch (Headsteadi said that he’s open for dinner as well, though).


Since we did not prepare any Plan B beforehand, we called Jackson who is staying around the area for recommendations. Yet, since we’re not familiar with Puchong, we’re still clueless about the places that he suggested. We then decided to go straight to Bandar Puteri Puchong and see what we could find, which eventually lead us to Restoran Ho Boh, same row as Axian Dim Sum.


A quick check with the menu shows that they serves Hakka dishes. With Yam Abacus Seeds in mind, we settled with 4 dishes, 2 soups and 2 rice as we were really starving (it was already 9pm+!). The manager recommended us to try their special Bitter Gourd with Ambra (kedondong) juice, which was rather refreshing with no bitter taste at all.


We practically loved all the dishes we ordered that night. The fried egg with bitter gourd was full of “wok hei” (aka “breath of the wok”) and again, the bitter gourd were not bitter. They were quite generous with the amount of bitter gourd too. The Yam Abacus Seeds were soft and a bit chewy. It fall short of our expectation (we prefer those with bits of yam embedded in it) but fortunately, the condiments of dried shrimps, mushrooms, chillies, black fungus, some smoked cuttlefish and scallions saved the dish.


The Hakka meatballs were bursting with porky flavour and goes really well with the home made chilli dip. Size wise, they’re smaller than Peng Heong’s version but I’m not complaining here. Stir-fried spinach with anchovies was simple but satisfying.


When the manager saw us with all the big camerasThe manager say that we brought in the crowd (the shop was rather quiet earlier), he treated us to 2 pieces of the Hakka stuffed beancurd for free! Good stuff as the outer part of the beancurd were crispy, while the minced pork stuffing was juicy and warm.

Verdict: We left the place with a tummy full of Hakka goodies.
