Kim Lian Kee is one of the oldest restaurants in Petaling Streets, claimed to be one of the firsts Hokkien-style fried mee in in KL, it’s been run by the Lee family since 1927. We found ourselves at Petaling Street not too long ago and decided to have this as lunch.

Kim Lian Kee still retains the small shop lot on ground floor with a few tables by the roadside in a semi alfresco style old school dining area, but walking upstairs revealed a comfortable dining hall with clean marbled table and air conditioning.

It’s good to see old school eateries upgrade to keep up with modern time.

We tried their Hokkien mee and Fried Hor Fun.

They were served relatively quickly, the Hokkien mee was really as good as advertised. Plenty of “wok hei” and made better by the generous amount of lard. Other ingredients are pork slices, prawns, and cabbage. The aroma of the noodle is said to be partly attributed to the usage of thick prawn shell soup. The sambal served along side with the noodle was top notch as well.

The fried hor fun was decent as well but I didn’t find it close to the standard of their Hokkien mee.

Other than fried noodles, Kim Lian Kee has quite a lot of other dishes on their menu. We only tried the squid with soya sauce as an accompanying dish. The seafood tasted pretty good, but it was a tad too salty.

If you find yourself at Petaling Street, do check out this restaurant for some good Hokkien Mee. Order other dishes at your own risk. Prices are in line with most air-conditioned places, expect to spend around RM10+ per person.
