Been hearing about this Bangkok lane Mee Goreng that’s at USJ (that would be UEP Subang Jaya as the official name) for a while now, so I decided to check it out last week.

For those who aren’t familiar with the background, there’s rather well known mee goreng located at Bangkok Lane in Georgetown. One that I’ve had quite a few times in Penang, and while it wasn’t my favorite, they do offer a very competent plate of this Indian dish compared to others on the island.

Of course, here in Klang Valley Penang style mee goreng is hard to come by, my previous favorite at PJ SS5 ceased to exists after the owner passed on, so to be honest, I haven’t had proper mee goreng outside Penang for years.

The stall at Restoran Ehsan Maju in USJ 2 is essentially a ‘branch’ from the same stall in Bangkok Lane, Penang. The menu is pretty simple, there’s mee goreng with or without sotong (squid), mee rebus (wet version) in the same two variety, and rojak – essentially their mee rebus without noodle.

So, how does it taste?

I would say it’s pretty spot on, except for the huge KL style portion, it is pretty consistent with what they offer in Penang. There’s decent flavor and all the ingredients are there. The fried shallots could be improved, and those sotong are a bit too bland (I’ll order without that next time). Other than that, definitely a more than acceptable “Penang style” mee goreng.

Will go again.

    Mamak mee I have managed to replicate it at home. Now just have to get the DIY Penang CKT right hmm might have to install a jet engine at home, or maybe have to purchase a well used 3rd generation wok from someone.

            This is nothing compare to Penang Bangkok Lane (pulau tikus) mee goreng. This owner is the younger brother of the Penang guy. At first when they newly opened it did taste as good as the original Penang mee. Now it just “SUCKS”

    That was the first thing I noticed too in the mee goreng….the poor quality fried shallots! >_< This Penang-style mee goreng is quite different from our KL version which I don't see with sotong & lettuce.
