While not being a huge fan, I do occasionally enjoy a good bowl of pan mee every now and then. So when Haze’s friend Angel told us that she was going to bring us to the famous Fatty Mee Hoon Kuih House at Taman Berkeley, I jumped on the opportunity.

The Klang style pan mee, or what locally referred to as mee hoon kuih (麵粉粿), is not very similar to the version you find at KL, with a few distinctions – lettuce is used instead of potato leaves, there’s pork innards, and the dish is usually served with soya sauce and chilli padi on the side instead of home-made chilli sauce.

Fatty Mee Hoon Kuih House is certainly one of the busiest restaurants I’ve  ever been. Sharing table is a norm here, and if you don’t have the patience to wait up to 45 minutes, the primary reason of this long wait is due to the fact that each bowl is cooked separated from scratch. A sure sign of hawkers taking their craft seriously.

The claim of fame here is the hand torn noodle itself, they are silky smooth and absolutely fantastic. The soup is subtle and sufficient, but I do miss not having some hot chilli sauce and the potato leave, though that’s maybe just a habit I need to kick.

A bowl of mee hoon kuih here goes for only RM 3.50, for RM 0.50 more you can add an egg, extra vege, or fried onion goes for RM 1, more ikan bilis? RM 1.50.

Rather cheap and plenty good hawker food, but do schedule at least an hour or more for a meal here.

Discuss : KY eats – Fatty Mee Hoon Kuih House, Taman Berkeley, Klang

  1. It’s one of my favourites, but I can’t be bothered with the queue and journey :p

    • suanie: the journey isn’t nearly as bad as the queue, only takes about 20 mins to get there.

  2. KY, with Berkeley in name of place sound great. Wonder how it got it name with Berkeley in it? Food look good.

    • Vickie: I have no idea, maybe the village elder founded the place after he came back from California? hahaha.

  3. Oh yes, anytime for me when it comes to pan mee! But i like mine with extra chiliessssssss :oops:

  4. Brings to mind our dianpianngu…

  5. I come here all the time, even though it is a far drive haha… cause my mum is a big fan!

  6. What does “fatty” mean in Chinese?

  7. I’m not a fan of pan mee too, and I didn’t know that they have this Klang version pan mee in Berkeley. I must check with my friends from Klang when I am back in town…but the entire KL region, or rather, Selangor, is also screaming with pan mee everywhere, seems like a symbol of the city eh? :-P

  8. I must say that the texture of the pan mee here is smooth and thin. Apart from that I think there’s nothing really to shout about. I didn’t bother anymore considering the drive and the wait time. If you haven’t tried those in Seri Kembangan, give it a shot KY. Their homemade chili and anchovies are kept separately on a plate instead of having them all soaked in the soup. I have a friend from Klang who swore by this fatty pan mee until I brought him to SK for a change. He’s a regular ever since! ;-)

    • Carl: I gotta know where’s this Seri Kembangan pan mee then!

      • They have quite a few good ones in SK itself, but basically all are about the same. Here is one that I normally go. (N03′ 01.812 E101′ 42.115/courtesy of Sumptuous blog) Hope you’ll like it!
