Growing up, I used to follow my dad to his office in KL, during weekends. While he got some work done, I got to raid the pantry and helped myself to the boxed drinks in the fridge (explains why I was so chubby). After that, he would take me to his favourite mee rebus stall at Jalan Kamunting for lunch. My dad is a simple man and he enjoys eating hawker food — I think I picked up this trait from him. Many people get put off by eateries at the back alley, but I kind of like the ‘feel’ back alley gives. This mee rebus stall is one of them. The stall has been around for quite some time. I remember eating here when I was 5 or 6 years old. Back then, a plate of mee rebus cost RM2 and RM2.50 if you add sotong. Now, a plate of mee rebus sotong cost RM5. This mee rebus comprised a hard-boiled egg (halved), tofu, potato cubes, beansprouts, sotong, fried shallots and chopped green chilli. I don’t fancy eating mee rebus, because I find the gravy a bit lacking. But I always make an exception for this, as the gravy is robust and thick with a hint of curry flavour.
Portion is a bit on the small side (especially when you’re hungry), but that’s probably just my greed talking. Go try this for yourself. If you’re one of those people who can’t stand eating by the drain (like my mum), you can opt to takeaway your mee rebus.
Food: 6/10 (halal)
Verdict: Pretty good mee rebus, but slightly pricey considering the portion.
Mee Rebus Stall
Behind Yut Kee Restaurant
Open for breakfast and lunch.
Close on Public Holidays.
i too like the back alley ambiance, so i think giving it 1/10 in your ambiance rating isn't exactly fair. :D
o.. i like mee rebus.. and also Jawa Mee (penang version).. But for healthy purpose i always request for mee hon rather than "mee" But i do think Kedah Mee rebus from my hometown are still the best!!! Well, it could be because i miss home.. but my tongue still tells me that i could not find any mee rebus better than Kedah mee rebus.. LOL
Oohh a back alley experience eh? Somehow the taste of food at back alley tastes a little bit better huh, with the additional aroma and ambience. LOL! I don't know, I felt the same when I had laksa next to the drain back in Penang. Just tasted better!
long time tak makan mee rebus…hard to find a good one….one day will take a drive to jln dang wangi for this…
i dont mind eating at back alleys as long as i don't see the rats
You, CHUBBY!? No chance!
Drooooooooool… I want some. But rats, I am in the middle east :-(
Authentic Malaysian dining! :D
(The mee looks good……..)
the original stall owner has gone back to India, so it has changed hands many years ago.
have you tried the CKT and the noodles from the Penang stall at this same lane? they're worth checking out
Not sure if Yut Kee still allows food to be brought into their premises before noon :)
Unka – I think they still allow it.
babe_kl – Yeah…my brother likes eating that. I'd steal all his cockles. =P
J – But portion quite small!
Julian – Wait till you see pictures of me as a kid!
Baby – Hehehe…I don't think rats will come out that time. Cockroach more likely.
vialentino – Lemme know if you like it!
iamthewitch – LOL…true!
Sandy – I've never had Kedah Mee Rebus before. Anywhere in KL I can find one?
KY – Have to manage people's expectations ma. If I say 5/10, and they go there, they might get a heart attack! =P
