Meng Kee Hokkien Mee @Bandar Baru Seri Petaling by FollowMeToEatLa

Meng Kee Hokkien Mee
Hidden Secret @ Bandar Baru Sri Petaling

There is a new neighbourhood cafe & restaurant in Bandar Baru Sri Petaling that is out of the ordinary. Why? Because this place serves Hokkien Char or Fook Kein Chow that is one of the best in the area. 

I am talking about my all-time favourite - Ming Kee Hokkien Mee which have just relocated from OUG to this new coffee shop called OVERNIGHT Cafe & Restaurant @ 2G, Jalan 14/149L, Bandar Baru Sri Petaling, Kuala Lumpur.   (Now Relocated back to OUG again) 

Business was quite good even in OUG back then. But since the authorities cited that his stall was residing on an illegal plot of land, he was forced to shift to a new place. Well, it was a blessing in disguise for Uncle Ming Kee as his business got even better in the new place as his regulars tagged along and new customers come through from the surrounding residential areas.    

Can't resist not taking shots of Noodles Uncle in action

He was busy whipping out fried noodles or Chow Fun non stop the whole night when I was there. For someone that been cooking for the past 20 odd years, I think this is 'sap-sap shui'. At one point, he told me to get my camera ready for the 'Wok on Fire' shot, hahaha ... real sporting guy!

I believe that his noodles tastes so good was due to the wok hei and his many years of cooking experience. Something that cannot be replicated or done at home. Dining here is fun and the experience is definitely worth it.  

This black noodle is worth the wait. Flavoursome thick noodles cooked to the right texture, not too soft or too wet. Fried with pork, prawns, pork intestines and pork crackling (chee yau char) using lard oil (chee yau), the yellow thick noodles are extremely tasty and flavourful. 

Definitely a hot favourite among the locals by judging from the numbers of plates forming during peak periods. Using the lard, this Hokkien Mee comes nicely moist, rich and thick best eaten with the sambal belacan and minced garlic too. Spicy chillies and pungent garlic, it complements the dish perfectly. 

Some say that the best way to savour and enjoy Hokkien mee is to 'tau pau' or takeaway. My hubby is among those that love to Ta Pau (doggy bag). According to him, he explained that by the time you reach home, the noodles would have absorbed all the gravy, thus making it more delicious!
Simple and delicious filled with Wok Hei Chow Fan or Fried Rice. This is a Must-Have for my 2nd daughter as she loves fried rice in any style thus this is her favourite food. A generous portion of finely cut long beans, fish cakes, Chinese sausages and prawns. therefore this is one excellent dish you should not miss not eating.

By the way, this fried rice still tastes good the next day, even after a nite in my fridge. Yummy ... :-)

Enjoy lip-smacking Cantonese fried noodles or Yin-yong noodles goodness. Uncle does an excellent job every time he cooks this. Gravy is thick and flavourful, loaded with lots of lui - pork, pork intestines, prawns and sometimes fish cakes (depends on his mood) and not forgetting vegetable of the day too. This clever combination of eggy gravy and wok hei noodles was wickedly delicious!

By the way, this is a MUST HAVE for my youngest son. He usually asked for this after a hard day work ... that is when he completed his homework and revision with me on the weekends. It was an easy, delicious and comfort food for him to de-stress after a full week in school.

On the days that I don't cook at home, this is my regular place to take away and feed the family for dinner. 

A hearty and delicious meal will definitely put hearts at ease, right? So why not head on over to Uncle Ming Kee for some comfort food in the form of noodles or rice to ease your tummy and soothe your soul. 

Mouthwatering dishes such as Hokkien Mee, Cantonese Fried Noodle, Fried Yee Mee, Singapore style Meehoon, Law Meen and many more will surely put a smile to your face and tummies too!
