After discovering the red wine mee suah dish at Jalan Ipoh, I started asking around about this dish and got a recommendation from a friend Chris that I should check out Old Fuzhou Restaurant at Damansara Kim, so I did.

Update 19/2/2018: This place has since closed.

Old Fuzhou is located at the side of Super Tanker at Damansara Kim. A corner restaurant with less than a dozen marbled table and classic wooden chairs. It has a bit of the old school Chinese charm, but also equipped with air conditioning for your comfort. Pretty neat.

Menu isn’t very extensive, but you have a selection of noodle & rice dishes, with some dinner sets and ala carte as well.

Of course, I went for the signature dish – red wine mee suah (RM 9.90). It is simple and unpretentious, with chunks of chicken, some ginger, black fungus, and of course, mee suah. I do like the soup base a bit more than the version at Sentul as it is thicker and more flavorful. For the price, it’s definitely a dish to recommend.

Haze tried the pretty unique red wine fried rice (similar price) which is probably a bit of an acquired taste. Similar ingredients but in the form of rice, you do get some green peas though. I gave it a try and thought it’s pretty delicious as well.

Most individual noodle dishes at Old Fuzhou are priced below RM 10, other htan mee suah, there’s loh mee, wantan mee, minced pork noodle, and even Hakka stew pork noodle. I’ll certainly be back to try some of their other stuff after I’m bored with red wine mee suah (which may not be so soon).

I first got to know about red wine mee suah from having a bowl at Suan’s sister’s place, with her mom being the cook. I was intrigued by this simple yet unique dish. From then on, I was hooked… and didn’t know where I could find them outside of Foochow strongholds like Sibu & Sitiawan.

Then one day after one of my dental visit for invisalign check up at Mydentist.my at Jalan Ipoh, I somehow ended up at Chin Heng kopitiam while looking for a quick lunch.

Looking at the big menu plastered on the wall, I found it! Red wine mee suah! I gotta have it, so I did.

The red wine mee suah (RM 9) here comes with plenty of ginger with stripes of mushroom and chunks of chicken. The soup isn’t as thick as I wanted, but according to the operator (2nd generation foochow from China) you can always ask to have less soup and they’ll prepare it to be thicker. It is a pretty good version nonetheless.

Restaurant Chin Heng also serves lamb chop, chicken chop, pork chop, and quite a variety of noodle/kuih teow. It is pretty popular with the office crowd nearby, but I think it is a place to check out even if you don’t work nearby.
