One of the hawker dishes I missed most from Penang was Jawa mee. It is something that is a little harder to find here in KL. So when horny told us about this great Jawa mee stall at Setapak, we just had to go.

Jawa Mee at Setapak
looks appetizing, no?

Jawa mee is basically blanched noodle served in tomato based gravy, usually comes with sliced tofu, bean sproud, vege, prawn cracker, potatoe, and sliced hard boiled egg. At this place, they give you two whole lime to squeeze onto the noodle to add some kicks. The word lime itself should already make your mouth watery.

The serving is quite big, and everything is just nicely done, including the presentation bit. The prawn cracker has just the right crispiness to it, and the sauce a has very nice tomato taste to it. Noodle (or meehun) is not overly done, overall taste is just superb with the lime adding to the overall freshness. For only RM 3 per plate, it’s a steal. Try it.

The Mee Jawa stall serves prawn mee as well, and is situated within SKY coffee shop (Kedai Makanan SKY), in Setapak. The place is easily recognised as the first floor houses a 100 Yen shop with very prominent sign boards.

Note: from bulatan Pahang, the KFC is some distance away, a few kilometers. So, be patient.
