When it comes to food in Klang, one would usually point to Bak Kut Teh, but if you dig 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 such treasure is Mee Hoon Kuih, or Klang’s own interpretation of the all-time favourite Pan Mee.
The most well-known spot for this hawker fare this side of town has got to be Fatty Mee Hoon Kuih located at Taman Berkeley, a shop that’s almost always packed, hot, and has a long queuing time.
However, if you ask some of the locals, the most tasty Mee Hoon Kuih is arguably the version served at Jalan Gelegor’s food court by a stall named Kah Ping.
You may recognise this particular food court for it’s famous Jalan Batai Char Kuih Teow so the bonus is, you can have both these hawker favourites at the same place now.
The Mee Hoon Kuih ordered here took a little over 10 minutes to arrive (much faster than Fatty’s).
This bowl brimming with everything good comes with hand pinched dough, pork slices, liver, an egg (optional), vegetables, spring onions, dried anchovies, and curiously enough, some small shrimps.
The dough was soft and silky, and the soup base is even sweeter than at Fatty’s, most likely due to the addition of those shrimps (much like the OUG pork noodles).
Kah Ping’s take on Mee Hoon Kuih is rather delightful. As per usual Klang style, there’s only chilli padi and soya sauce as condiments instead of the homemade chilli sauce you find whenever enjoying a bowl of Pan Mee in Kuala Lumpur.
However, the chilli padi and soy sauce did complement the dish well, especially if you’re the kind who likes an added kick of spice in your noodles.
