Ah Wah Turns Bad

Remember my post on Ah Wah Hokkien Mee not so long ago? Well…it’s no longer good. I went there last Friday only to discover that the food has greatly deteriorated. And no…it wasn’t a full house, only 5 tables (including ours) were occupied.

I ordered the Wat Tan Hor (Cantonese Fried Kuay Teow) and Hokkien Mee. The Wat Tan Hor tasted like a glob of starch. The noodles were stuck together and there was NO WOK HEI present. Sooooo slimy…eurghhh!

The Hokkien Mee tasted awful. The noodles were tasteless! Again, NO WOK HEI…and…(gasp) THEY FORGOT THE LARD!!! 0_0 When I asked them what happened to the lard, they said they forgot and gave me a small saucer of NOT CRUNCHY lard.

Very upsetting as they started off great. I don’t think I will go back there again. Have to look for some place else to get my Hokkien Mee fix. Any suggestions?

    For this, I will take your recommendations more seriously. 🙂 People aren’t usually serious enough to advise others when the quality drops. THANK YOU!!!

    Well you can always try the famous Kim Kian Kee 金连记 in Petaling Street(opposite of the famous longan drinks stall) which the best time to go is in the midnight as not to crowded or you can try Klang BOSTON Restaurant which famous for their steam lala. They do served nice verity of noodles as well but same as you need to get there early or late(midnight) to avoid the crowd which dining in.

    I just discovered your food guide and I find it good because it gives a real honest opinion, and not like those newspaper food guide that says everything is nice.
    As for the hokkien mee, the competitor nearby Sentul Ah Yap ‘s hokkien mee is good when it is fried by the owner Bernard or his sifu mother, but not when it is fried by the foreign workers. And they give lots of lard fritters. But personally I don’t really like hokkien mee because it is too oily.

      Thanks Wong. I appreciate the acknowledgement. Yes, Hokkien Mee tends to be oily. You’ll have better luck with mun yee mee. If you enjoy yee mee, that is. 🙂
