Penang Jawa Mee @ Kedai Kopi Five Five Five, Bandar Menjalara Kepong

Due to my new business venture, I have been eating around Kepong a lot more recently. I thought I had discovered all the great food nearby but boy, how wrong was I. In the recent weeks alone I have found new spots for delicious yet affordable hawker food such as fish head noodle, claypot chicken rice, Char Koay Teow, Jawa mee, chicken rice and duck rice.

One of the better Jawa Mee I have had in KL is at Kedai Kopi 555 located near Bandar Menjalara’s jogging park. The stall is operated by an elderly Chinese couple from Penang and everything about their noodle from the thick and flavorful gravy to the spicy chili paste to the crunchy prawn fritters taste wonderful with the unmistakenbly Penang taste.

Seng Jawa Mee @ Jalan Pasar, Bukit Mertajam

I am not a huge fan of Jawa Mee but I do have a stall that I will never hesitate to go back to. It only opens in the evening around 7.30pm and operates past midnight after 2am, perfect for those looking for supper. The stall is called Seng Jawa Mee and like many other good food in Bukit Mertajam, it is also located just next to the Pek Kong Cheng temple. If you happen to drop by my lovely home town, this is actually something worth trying.

This is also one of the very few remaining Jawa Mee stalls that stay authentic to the noodle’s original recipe. Each plate comes with yellow noodle only, topped with slices of half boiled eggs, tau kua, lettuce, sambal, crushed peanuts, prawn crackers and cucur (prawn fritters). The delicious gravy has the perfect consistency too, not too watery nor too thick and I never had any problem finishing it everytime.
