I’ve Β heard of Restaurant Ahwa and it’s famous Hokkien Mee (not prawn mee) for a long time. However, for some reasons it took me years to finally go there despite staying only some 2 kilometers away.

What followed was a second visit just days after the first, the reputation for this place is indeed well deserved.

Restaurant Ahwa is located just next to the Shell gas station on Jalan 222, just a short turning from Federal Highway Jalan 222 exit. Parking is usually not a very trying affair as there is only a single row of shops where the restaurant is located. Looking for a place to sit though, might prove to be slightly harder as the restaurant is rather busy.

On the first visit, horng and I ordered hokkien mee for two and we added a plate of loh bak for good measures.

The Hokkein Mee (RM 12 for 2) was rather good. Dark, rich, and of course, with bits of fried pork lad. I would say this place is on par with the other famous Hokkien Mee stall at Chow Yang. It did not disappoint despite the fact that KL style Hokkien Mee isn’t exactly my favorite hawker foods.

The loh bak was pretty satisfactory, but we’ve had better prawn fritters though, (the one outside Pudu Plaza comes to mind).

On my second visit with Kerol, we ordered Wat Tan Hor (RM 12 for 2, flat noodle with egg gravy) for two with a plate of lala and a couple deep fried chicken wings as appetizers.

Perhaps it’s a personal taste, but I do like their wat tan hor more than the hokkien mee this place is famous for. The gravy was thick and savory, the flat noodle flavorful.

The lala (RM 11) too were juicy and spicy, which makes it a perfect appetizer. I wish we had ordered a bigger serving though. As for the chicken wings, they were decent enough as normal deep fried belacan marinated chicken wings, but not something to shout about since I still think mom makes the best belacan chicken wings on the surface of the earth.

On both occasions though, we ended up pretty satisfied while not exactly having to scotch the wallet for a sumptuous no nonsense KL hawker food. I shall return to this kopitiam again and again.

  1. Yah so near this place and famous, but still haven’t been there haha.

  2. Ohh, I love the “yuet kwong hor” there. Super yummy!! Try it the next time you’re there if you haven’t already. They run out of it sometimes though, especially if you go a little late.

  3. Yeah, I’ve been here several times too. I somehow end up here when I take the Federal Highway back home (I use the Jalan 222 exit and take the inner roads). I agree, the hokkien mee is awesome! πŸ™‚

  4. ShaolinTiger,
    Yahh, it’s nice!

    Sash,
    ooo cool, thanks!

    Haui Bin,
    Wah now know how to take inner roads already hah, not bad! πŸ˜€

  5. tell the fella to add lard, and u see him bringing u a huge bowl of crispy crunchy lard! hahaha

  6. earl-ku,
    I think I already have too much lard as is. lol, not sure if it’ll be a good idea πŸ˜›

  7. walao regret seeing this post, now dam hungry lo and no food available πŸ˜› Anyway, nice blog. Will visit often.

  8. chris,
    Thank you very much on the vote of confidence! πŸ˜€

  9. eh.. the old schools will insist that another shop – forgot what name but it’s at the far left corner shop, same row as ah wah, has better hokkien mee than this. having tried both, i think that one is much better πŸ™‚

  10. yuetmui,
    Ooo I know which one you’re talking about, perhaps I shall try it one of these days. πŸ˜‰

  11. haha, this restaurant was 1 one my favor hokien mee and also their chicken wing. I used to visit every week… yummy

  12. i’m hungry…

  13. well, i am not sure how the wat tan hor there tastes. But i am definitely sure that you should try the wat tan hor at Pan Heong near Batu Caves. The gravy is much much thicker than the picture shown.

    really. you really should try pan heong. =)

  14. KT,
    Nice! Every week is a bit extreme though :/

    DS,
    Eat πŸ˜€

    damien,
    Ah, I have, but Pan Heong is a bit too far to go on a regular basis for me. πŸ˜‰

  16. panda,
    Yes they do have cantonese noodles too! πŸ˜€

  20. don’t mind going back there.

  21. Yatz,
    Ooo interesting, will do!

  22. bro,

    Glad you been there. Its indeed very nice. I love it very much. Been there 3-4times. I even drove my parents from kajang to eat there. Worth the trip when they also give their thumb up cos my parents are kinda particular when comes to hokkien mee. For me, i like it very much but i hate chewing on pig lard which they have cut it into smaller size and escaped into my mouth and chewing.

    Thumbs up for you!

  23. clement,
    Wah all the way for kajang is a bit extreme, but I love lard πŸ˜›

  24. Wow, the hokkien mee looks good. I hope the belacan taste good as well.

  25. JD,
    Give it a try! πŸ˜€

  26. hmmm, tot it was okok only…

  27. Yiling,
    I suppose taste is a very personal thing. πŸ˜€

  28. *YumS*
    that’s my ultimate fave hokkien mee place in the whole wide world!!

  29. Btw,can I know what is their operation hour ler..
    Afternoon havr r?

  30. joyjoyce,
    Ooo that’s saying something!

    sad_klguy,
    They’re open for dinner πŸ™‚

  31. […] Yuan Hokkien Mee in Ah Fatt kopitiam is situated on the same row as the vastly more famous Ahwa Hokkien mee that I’ve blogged about, another example would be Satellite chicken rice located a few doors […]

  32. Ahwa hokkien pricetag hit higher recently and quality is still remain the same.

    • Ford_GT: inflation? lol

      • Inflation ? I dunno. ❓

        There is one branch in Subang Taipan closed down however I still prefer botak hokkien mee back in Kotaraya city if you could recall in early yesteryear.

        • Ford_GT: ahh, that one i never had.

          • Unfortunately the botak pass away long time ago but the stall inherited by his son who doesn’t really prefer black charcoal instead of gas. Still hanging in Kotaraya Lai Foong restaurant to eat beef noodles or chicken rice?
