Continuing on my DU Project, today’s highlight is MKP Lum Mee. Branch out from their original outlet at Pudu, MKP Lum Mee has been in business for four decades. This particular outlet in Damansara Uptown is popular with the lunch crowd – it’s impossible to get a table if you’re here in between 12.30pm – 1.00pm. As usual, parking on weekday is a major headache here, so it is advised that you come on a weekend morning instead.
Alright, so we did try their lum mee (thick yellow noodles in dark, starchy gravy) which was rather average. You can substitute the yellow noodles with meehoon or rice vermicelli or kuey teowas well. Portion is rather small, with one or two butterflied-prawn and some chicken slices thrown in.
Their dry noodles fares slightly better on the taste department, probably due to the sauce they use. Ingredients-wise, it is the same as the above. Their curry laksa, however, managed to stand out from the crowd scored rather high marks among my colleagues (a.k.a. DU Project gang). While some rant that the curry is rather mild, those who can’t really take spicy food enjoyed this immensely. Served with poached chicken, some taufu puffs, long beans and cockles, their curry laksa perhaps is their best dish here.
If you need some side dish, they have beancurd rolls (fu chuk), sui kow (soup or fried meat dumpling), pork and fish balls too.
