Hokkien Mee @ Restaurant Ahwa


After a long long time of silence, I have decided to write again in my blog. No more on politics or controversy issues where I might be considered seditious, I would to stick to something close to my heart that is food.

Let me start of with the Hokkien mee. According to the Wikipedia Hokkien mee refers to fried noodles cooked in Hokkien (Fujian) style. Hokkien mee is served in many Southeast Asian countries (mostly Malaysia and Singapore) and was brought there by immigrants from Fujian Province in southeastern China.

Hokkien char mee (Hokkien/Fujian fried noodles; 福建炒麺) is served in Kuala Lumpur and the surrounding region. It is a dish of thick yellow noodles braised in thick dark soy sauce with pork, squid, fish cake and cabbage as the main ingredients and cubes of pork fat fried until crispy.

If you are in Kuala Lumpur or the Petaling Jaya area, you must try the Hokkien mee at Restaurant Ahwa along Jalan 14/48 off Jalan 222, Section 14, Petaling Jaya.

The Hokkien mee here is fired in a Chinese wok with charcoal fire. Although it is the best in town, the price is a bit expensive and because of its popularity you must be prepared to wait patiently for your food to be served.

There are also other dishes available to suit your taste buds.


  1. take note that if you order Hokkien Mee in Penang, it going to be different mee. Penang Hokkien Mee is what KL ppl called Prown Mee.

  2. best article I read about this yet!
