Excellent Hokkien Mee @ Ahwa Restaurant…

Good Hokkien Mee is a must for any ‘dai chow’ (big fry-up) place. So far, the best place that I’ve tried would have to be this place – Ahwa Restaurant, situated on the border of Section 14 and Section 51A, off Jalan 222 in Petaling Jaya.

Your absolutely ‘must have’ dish – Hokkien Mee (also known as ‘black oil mee’ because of its dark colour!)

Their Cantonese fried noodles are also good…

Of course, for a typical Malaysian like myself, there has to be an array of food on the table (who ever heard of having just ONE type of food on the table during mamak/ ‘big fry’ sessions? Sacrilege!) There are several other stalls at the restaurant that are worth mentioning:

Chicken Wings…RM1.50 per wing. Has ‘nam yee’ in the batter somewhere I suspect…and it goes perfectly with the accompanying chilli sauce!

The ikan bakar (grilled stingray) - RM15 for a 2-person portion

Sotong Kangkong (cuttle fish with water convolulus) – a medium portion costs RM10

No need for words here – we polish off the whole lot every single time…check out how mangled the stingray bones look!

I eat here about once a month, especially when out with colleagues to rant about work (!!) One gripe would be the lack of parking in the area (most of the cars are parked along the road) but otherwise it’s not too bad – definitely worth it for the food there!

Ahwa Restaurant
66, Jln 14/48,
Section 14, Petaling Jaya.
(it’s directly behind the Shell station along Jalan 222)

Rating: 4.5 / 5
Value: $$

EH! I used to go there for my hokkien mee fix, but since their price went up and they became stingy with the meat-prawn-vege, I began going to the restaurant on the same street but on the opposite end.

Surprisingly, their hokkien mee is good too! Not too dry, RM 5 per head and lots of meat, prawn and pork fat, haha! Try it some time and let me know what you think. Of course there is less side dishes there, only lobak, ling chee kang, sotong kangkong, I think grilled fish too?

askmewhats: just get your butt over to Malaysia - we'll take care of the rest! LOL...

jessie: really? they haven't changed much since I've been going there except for the price increase to RM6. Will give the other shop a try one day - never went there cos it always looked so empty! :)
