Charcoal Fired Hokkien Mee, Genting Klang

Sparks flying (above). After the sparks the dance began (below).
Simple pleasures bring great comfort to the soul esp. after a rainy day. One of it, is the Hokkien Mee done the traditional way. Charcoal fired with sparks flying. Indication of a great meal to come.

I like my Hokkien Mee fried with lard in a thick cast iron wok over charcoal fire. In addition, generous loads of the crispy lard pieces that make the meal memorable. Then there is the thick dark soya sauce that gives the colour and leaves an ever so slight bitter aftertaste in my mouth. The sauce should be thick enough to cling for dear life on the noodles so that the I can have a full taste. I hated it when lots of the sauce were left behind in a watery puddle on the plate after the noodles are gone. Bad cooking.

A reminder. Be prepared to wait. Sorry no other stalls nearby to order appetizer!

Prices: RM4.00 per serving/head. Open at night.
Location: From TAR College drive along Jalan Genting Klang towards Air Panas traffic lights T-Junction. Pass the junction and you can see the coffeeshop right ahead on your left.

Full-bodied Hokkien Mee. Enjoy!!

TT... Yes I lived nearby eons ago too;-)

LforB... Per head friend, ordered a plate for 3 at RM12.00. I just do simple math that RM4.00 per head.

CampC... The portion is acceptable for supper not dinner, that's the catch!

Hmmm...lard is always got its magic power to enhance the flavor to dishes. No doubt.
