Ah Wah Hokkien Fried Mee

ah wah hokkien mee wok hei

No, this is not the famous Ahwa in Petaling Jaya. The Ahwa (without the h) is practically a legend in PJ, famed for their Hokkien mee topped with crunchy deep fried pork lard. It was a regular stomping ground of mine back when I was living in Kelana Jaya.

I wanted to go to Ahwa after reading cumidanciki and Christine‘s posts a couple of days back, but only 2 months after moving to a KL postcode, I completely lost my way and ended up spending almost 1 1/2 hours on the road before my friend told me that the Ah Wah she knows is at a different location – Restoran Millennium Eighty Six.

Look for the signage at upper right. Now, I must admit that I haven’t heard of this particular Ah Wah Hokkien Fried Mee (I know, it’s confusing, just think of one with a h and one without) before but my friend swears by the Hokkien mee – it is her family’s favorite haunt. Thus we decided to give it a try instead of compounding all the wasted time on the road.

I must say that this one rivals Ah Wa in pure awesomeness. The Hokkien mee is cooked to perfection in a wok that imparts that elusive “wok hei” (literally “heat from the wok”) which caramelizes the sauce.

Ignition! They call it an obsession, but I think it’s kinda bitchin’, I think it’s kinda neat!

Eating Hokkien mee is messy business. It’s not supposed to be healthy for you too, with all the strong flavored deep fried pork lard. However, that’s what makes it good – the robust aftertaste and squirt of oil when you bite into the deep fried pork lard is very agreeable to the palate if you like all things that goes oink.

The Hokkien mee at Ah Wah is also filled with succulent pieces of prawn and meat and it tastes slightly sweet with the indescribable contrast of the soft noodles and the crunchy pork lard fusing together into a dish of pure gratification.

  4. HB: Looks yummy dude. The so call Wok Hei is the heat smoking the animal fat, ergo the yummy taste, not the caramalised sauce.
    But more imporantly, where is the Pricenss of Seremban? I hope you are not eating and she has to take all the pictures.

    Marlboro Guy: Hmm…this was before I had my new GPS so I don’t have the exact coordinates. It’s in Taman Paramount, I think a few people up there knows where it is, will get back to you about this. Cheers bro! 🙂
    WEEN: Chill buddy, just thought that you were a bit off on the comments about eating people/making them pets. 😉
    Erica: It loses a lot of the flavor if you take away the pork lard and other sinful but delicious bits. You can try though, I’m not sure how to make it but a bit of Googling does wonders. 🙂

  8. Wah … those lards! you can really pick on them, if you’re not fond of the fat noodles (like me).
    One advantage of eating with gals who squirm at the sight of lards – You get to eat all the crunchy, greasy bits. 🙂

  11. Do you think blogging just has to be about writing? Reason I ask is I want to start a photography blog, but I feel I am better at expressing myself with photos rather than write. Should I even start it? With your experience could it work, more pictures, less words?

  15. I’ve been waiting for a plausible alternative to smoking tobacco for many years (at least 5 years). I tried eclipse cigarettes and smoked them specifically to avoid ingesting added harmful chemicals; however the design of the filter superseded any benefits provided. The electronic cigarette has resolved the design flaw of eclipse cigarettes and I’m now tobacco-free (working on my fourth week of being without smoking tobacco). I don’t look at electronic cigarettes as a way to quit smoking, more of a way to avoid all the harmful chemicals in tobacco.

Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
