When it comes to food in Klang, one would usually point to bak kut teh, but if you dig in a little bit deeper, there are other gems hidden in this older part of the valley which you may not find in other places – one of such treasure is mee hoon kuih, or Klang’s own interpretation of pan mee.
Kah Ping hawker stall at Jalan Gelegor food court
The most well known of such dish this part of town has got to be Fatty Mee Hoon Kuih located at Taman Berkeley, a shop that’s almost always packed, hot, and requires a long wait time.
However, if you ask some of the locals, the best Mee Hoon Kuih is arguably the version served at Jalan Gelegor’s food court by a stall with the name of Kah Ping.
You may have recognized this particular food court for it’s famous Jalan Batai char kuih teow which I’ve penned on this space some time ago, yeap, you can have them both at the same place!
Klang style mee hoon kuih (or pan mee)
My mee hoon kuih took a little over 10 minutes to arrive (much faster than Fatty’s). The bowl of goodness comes with hand pinched dough, pork slices, liver, an egg (optional), vege, spring onion, dried anchovies, and curiously, some small shrimps.
The dough was as solf and silky as it comes, and I thought the soup base was even sweeter than Fatty’s version, most likely due to the addition of those shrimps (much like the OUG pork noodle). I find myself enjoying this version quite a bit. As per usual Klang style, there’s only chili padi & soya sauce as condiment instead of those home made chili sauce you find at KL’s pan mee, but they do compliment the dish well if you like to add some kick.
A worthy mee hoon kuih to try, I’ll bring mom next since she loves a good bowl of mee hoon kuih!

eh… eh… looks suspiciously like a dish I always make at home lol, but with bihun instead and alot more anchovies, and at least three eggs. When I go out and eat, I always order dishes like CKT because I cannot replicate the same intense wok hei at home.
Hodor: 3 eggs, ok you win!
just to confuse people, someone should start selling a kuih made out of mee hoon 😉
Sean: some people wanna watch the world burn! haha.
There is such a treat. Indians selling them on roadside, with palm sugar and coconut, is delish #retrorealnews
kekeke: ooo i miss that.
that bowl of mee hoon kuih!!Looks super yummy, I stay in Indonesia but I haven’t found similar food like that me hoon yet.
Kim: but you do have different and wonderful food over there too!
So pan mee and mee hoon kuih is one and the same thing?
suituapui: very very slightly different
WAH, finished the soup licin licin!
Choi Yen: pasal sedap!
Wait, there’s more to Klang than bak kut teh? I’m listening 😉
Monica: plenty more!
