A short while ago when I posted an Insta story update of Aik Prawn mee, a follower suggested  Johnny’s Prawn Mee as a place any prawn mee fan should check out. As a proper fan of prawn mee, I did just that the first chance I had.

Johnny’s is located at Fullhouse Cafe at Taman Subang Murni. If you haven’t heard of this place, well, it is because it’s located somewhere between Shah Alam, Sungai Buloh, and Subang Airport,  or aka – nowhere any sane person would go without a solid reason.

Johnny’s Prawn Mee offers three classic Penang hawker dishes – prawn mee, loh mee, and kueh teow soup. Over the past two visits, I tried two of my favorites – loh mee and prawn mee, in that order.

Loh mee because it is very difficult to find a good version of Penang loh mee in Klang Valley, with the only one I am aware of at Choon Prawn Mee in Seapark.

The loh mee at Johnny’s comes with all the proper ingredients you’d expect, and a broth that is thick and flavorful. There’s prawns, hard boiled egg, pork slices, and garlic. You can also asks for extra ingredients if you so wish. I went with some pork intestine and was glad that I did.

RM 10 later and I was very, very satisfied. Best Penang loh mee I’ve had outside the island.

A few days later on an off day, I went again for the prawn mee, and ordered the version with extra prawns.

I must admit that I regretted ordering the extras a bit – there were simply way too much prawns! RM 15 for this bowl and I counted over a dozen pretty good size prawns. I’ve never thought it was possible to have too much prawn in prawn mee until now…

Overall the prawn mee, like the loh mee I had before, did not disappoint. The broth had the unmistakable prawn shell sweetness to it, and there’s everything you’d expect – pork slices, prawns, kangkung, bean sprouts. If I had to nitpick, perhaps the only area of improvement here would be the chili paste, it was okay, but it could be slightly more fragrant perhaps.

Anyway, I’ll be back to Johnny’s for sure. Maybe to try the kuih teow soup next?
