Once in a while my wife and i like to indulge in some oily/cholesterol laden charcoal fried Hokkien mee with a hot pot of Chinese tea to wash it down.

This stall is located in a no name corner coffee shop in Section 17, Petaling Jaya run by Tua Pui who charcoal fried one of the best Hokkien style fried Kway Teow, fat egg noodles, Bee Hoon and Lor Mee while having his fix of a bottle of Guinness stout every now and then.

Forty years ago,Tua Pui was one of the four young cooks of the famous Jackson Hokkien Mee stall in Restoran Lucky in PJ State new town (now RHB) where we used to patronize.

We have been his regulars ever since.

p/s be prepare to wait (30-45 minutes) and sometimes his wife can be quite ignorant!

Charcoal fried Hokkien Kway Teow-with light and dark soy sauce, lean pork, shrimp, Chinese cabbage and deep fried pork lard-the kway teow was chewy, smooth, fragrant, oily and a bit charred-arteries clogging stuff but delicious-Rm6/

Charcoal fried Hokkien fat egg noodle and bee hoon (rice vermicelli)-with light and dark soy sauce, lean pork, shrimp, Choy sam and deep fried pork lard-the combination was perfect with the right amount of gravy reduction-Rm6/

Location: Section 17, Petaling Jaya,
corner coffee shop-beside the open air food court.

This dish is one of my favorites. The restaurants here don't cook like this..... so, looking forward to the next trip home and order a double!

Z-sorry to make you salivate.
