Mee Bandung Muar Abu Bakar Hanipah @ Wah San Kopitiam

Mee Bandung is one of the foods you should not miss in Muar, simply because the best ones are all concentrated here. In fact, Muar is the town where Mee Bandung is said to originate from. Anyway, there are many stalls and restaurants you could go looking for this popular local dish but I placed my bet on Abu Bakar Hanipah‘s at Wah San Kopitiam along Jalan Abdullah. The coffee shop’s name is especially catchy and easy to remember for me, since there is a clan and mountain with the same name in Chinese martial arts novels too.


This was my first time having Mee Bandung Muar and all I could say is that I was immediately hooked. Imagine a hearty serving of noodle in an egg and shrimp broth that tastes extraordinary, like a slightly sweeter and concentrated version of Chinese prawn noodle but topped with delicious beef slices and small whole shrimps instead. Each mouthful is rich and bursting with prawn flavor, there’s simply no stopping once you have started – simply delicious. Priced at RM4 per plate, no doubt this is one of the best local food we had during our short trip to Muar.



Besides Mee Bandung the satay here is very good too, the beef one is nicely marinated with a strong and distinctive spicy taste.


If you love the noodles and want to make your own at home you will be glad to know Abu Bakar Hanipah also sells their spices in ready-made packs @ RM10 each. I would probably buy a few if my new kitchen is ready but it isn’t yet :(
