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.
Fatty Mee Hoon Kuih (Pan Mee) at Taman Berkeley
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.
you can also add a poached egg, and pork liver comes standard
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.
the “Michael Jackson” here is barley + cincau
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.
