One of my favorite kopitiams to go to when I find myself at Segambut area is Hoi Kee, located at the corner just opposite RHB bank.

Coincidentally, for those of you who follow my instagram account (@kyspeaks), you might know that I almost always order the jawa mee here.

The jawa mee is offered by the same stall that also sells Penang curry mee (the version without pork blood). Operated by a couple who were originally from Penang, the dishes offered by them is more than legit.

Unlike other more glamorous Penang hawker dishes, Jawa mee gets little attention from most people. In fact, the difference between jawa mee and mee rebus mamak isn’t particularly big. Both versions come with prawn fritters, potato, tofu, and cuttle fish, but the sauce used for Jawa mee (usually offered by Chinese hawkers) has a stronger tomato taste to it.

Additionally, jawa mee comes with a version of sambal that is usually absent from mee rebus. What I know is that I really enjoy the version offered by this particular stall

If nasi lemak with pork is your thing, you should also visit this same kopitiam.

  1. wah, mee jawa, a blast from my childhood past … malacca’s hawkers do them great also, with lots of those crunchy fritters and potatoes in creamy, tasty sauce (no sotong though, but got prawns, if i remember correctly) 🙂

  2. KY, what is it any way? If I were to order it should it have those thing like potato, prawn and crunchy fritters and pig blood in it?

  3. Hey! You have this there! I blogged about those here and people said they could not find it there – guess those people didn’t know much else other than their mee mamak. This one looks very nice – the seller looks like a Chinese. Is she? Here, we can only get mee jawa from the Malay stalls.

    • suituapui: ooO, not sure if it’s the exact same version but jawa mee from Penang is usually by Chinese. 😀

  4. Yes, sambal is a must! I’ll reject any jawa mee that does not come with sambal!
