Hakka Loh Mee @ Bukit Jalil

hakka mee start

One dark and stormy night…

Okay, it wasn’t stormy but it was late at night. Most of the places were closing down but I saw this coffee shop which was still open and drove in.

We decided to share the Hakka Loh Mee since Caydence is of Hakka descent and would be able to gauge the authenticity of the dish. I was wrong on both counts since she doesn’t eat anything – apparently she was the inspiration for Matthew when he wrote “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God“.

However, she does know how to cool down a piping hot bowl of Hakka Yee Mee (they ran out of Loh Mee) quickly. Don’t be fooled, she wasn’t getting a portion for herself, I did that already and she doesn’t want to eat. She’s just reducing the temperature of the Hakka noodle dish.

I wouldn’t heap accolades on the Hakka Loh Mee – it wasn’t anything special even after hefty seasoning with vinegar and pepper. It was starchy and eggy and by all accounts looks palatable but if I had one word to describe it, it would be mediocre.

This place is located Somewhere in Bukit Jalil (TM) near her apartment but I’ll be damned if I can find it again since I didn’t turn on the GPS. Well, considering the quality of the food, it’s not like I want to anyway. ;)

  1. try hakka lui cha but hardly find original hakka lui cha thats taste fucking bitter than bittergourd…all normal sweet taste… ;)

  2. WEEN: Haha! No worries mate, but she’s Chinese…Chinese Malaysian. :)
    chefmel: Nice! This one comes with pork too. I must try the one in Penang! :)
    WEEN: *cough* Not commenting about that. ;)
    ah nel: Hakka Lui Cha is a little bit too healthy for my tastes…perhaps when I detox or something. ;)

  3. Anyway..ur photo still make me drool..how am i gonna get something to eat middle of the night in Sibu eehh?
    By de way, Caydence just simply does not want to put anything into her mouth ?…not very nice for u mate eii..

  4. Charles: Hmm…Hakka mee in Sibu, honestly haven’t heard of that dish back home since we don’t exactly have a huge Hakka population. :)
    Haha! No, she doesn’t eat much, it’s different from not wanting to put anything in her mouth. ;)

  5. Dude, you wore the Spanky out in the public….proud of ya. Once I was cursed out by an Angmoh auntie for wearing offensive themed shirt.

  6. HB, eaten this noodle dish in Taipei many times and type of it. I have many young women friends who are Hakka and yes tall 5’6 or taller I am 5’8 and my other sister nineteen 5’8 also.
    Your last entry on Hokkien Fried NoodleI use instead of deep fried lard Chinse smoke ham or bacon deep fried slice and chop up for topping.

  7. e: Haha! I love this t-shirt, thanks for getting it from the States for me. Hmm…I don’t think a lot of people here can catch the reference “Spank the Monkey”. I have a lot of other statement tees e.g. drug culture ones but I don’t get second looks except from the police. ;)
    michellezyenn: Thanks! :)
    Haha! Okay, maybe that’s the reason…loh mee is healthy? It has pork in it though. Eggs too. :)
    dustbin: Hello troll! Good to see you’re commenting with some semblence of regularity right now, but I regret to inform you that only one of us has a cibai. :)
    Vickie: Nice! Yeah, bacon fat would substitute for deep fried pork lard but it really isn’t much healthier though. ;)
    Good luck with your recipe. :)
    Cheers: Haha! Caydence doesn’t eat. It’s a miracle that she’s still alive. :)
    WEEN: I haven’t hit the gym! Jesus, that’s a good idea eh since I have the facilities at my studio. I’m starting to get very fat (at least around the cheeks). :)

  8. Gosh! Looking at how your face has “grown”, you must have added at least 25%! Hit the gym fast!!! No more handsome like that lor! Hahahahaha!!!! This Hakka lor mee…anything like the Hinghua lor mee. I hear that one’s also very plain/light-coloured like this one. I think I would prefer the darker varieties…

  9. Getting fat is a good sign. You have settled into the family life, the wife feeds you and you put on weigh, good sign. Everything is good.
    It’s when you are crushing thats when you worry. You have relationship issues, work stress, too much exercise running from Ah Long :)
    May the fat be with you, Luke, I mean HB.

  10. Charles: Haha! Cheer mate! Thanks for the vote of confidence. ;)
    suituapui: I know. T_T
    A lot of people have commented about it. Haha!
    Okay, I need to eat less and exercise more! My new New Year Resolution.
    Yup, I would prefer the dark variety as well, coz the lighter ones doesn’t have a lot of taste to it. :)
    rocket: Heh! It’s not a good sign. I gotta get back in shape.
    Love that quote buddy, nice one! :)

  11. Want to get back in shape ah? let’s see.
    a. borrow money from Ah long and don’t pay. Wah, they really make you run, with parangs swinging in the air.
    b. drop stains in your SIL’s favourite dress and she will also chase you with a cleaver aka chai-to.
    Let me part some wisdom to you. All these going to gym and getting in shape is for ignorant young people. For us married folks, just enjoy the bliss, eat, eat some more to keep the wife happy. Exercise is futile, unless ah long is chasing you, of course.
    And one last thing, Caydence is still as pretty as ever, tay-mia-chap-nee-also-kumguan-ah
