Some of you might recall that I absolutely love the popiah at Melaka that comes with the very sinful fried lard. Well, now I have finally found one worthy Halal version here at PJ thanks to Kelvin.

Popiah basah at seksyen 14, petaling jaya
the very old school food court

This popiah stall is located at the wet market food court next to the PJ Digital Mall at Seksyen 14, for those who are a bit challenged geographically, it is one street behind the opposite of the new Jaya 33 mall.

According to Kelvin, the popiah stall has been in business more than some bloggers have been alive. Still with the same owner serving the same very best popiah basah (wet spring roll).

ahh, glorious popiah!

At just RM 1.00 each, the popiah comes with the traditional ingredients of bean sprouts, tofu, and I believe Chinese turnip (mangkuang), kunyit and perhaps a few more ingredients I can’t name. A sweet brown sauce topped the roll and you can have chili paste according to taste as well. I usually love mine a bit spicier than normal, I think it goes very well with the brown sauce. The juiciness and the satisfaction from this traditional snack is something worth way more than the RM 1 you have to pay.

now you know how to get there from Federal Highway

The stall is open on afternoons, give it a try especially if you find yourself at Digital Mall.

    The Indian named as Ali and his uncle was the first who started the business since 1998. The stall start business from 3pm until sold out and the popiah is really ‘basah’ and of course, awesome!

  7. btw turnips is sengkuang. mengkuang is the leaves they use to weave mats.

  8. pinkpainter, i’ve eaten his popiah since 1993 at least so it’s definitely b4 1998 😉

  9. Ah, I read this in masak-masak too. They will also setup stall in TTDI i think during Ramadan.

  10. pinkpainter,

    Hi! Kelvin. I got the info from Ali, so not sure i heard wrongly.

    Hi! KY. I not have it often, but i like popiah so go everywhere as long as i know there is sign of this gooey.

  30. IGNATIO,
    Sounds great!


    oOo, I see I see. 😀

  31. pinkpainter, i think u heard wrongly. i was talking to the guy and told him i’ve been eating there since 1993 (and i’m not old enough to be senile just yet) because i was working in that area and sometimes tahpau his popiah for tea break. he of course agreed with me and said he started in the late 80s.

  32. pinkpainter

    Ok. Tx 4 ur info

  33. I wonder what’s the price like in the late 80s
