Here is another place for a plate of “goh za bee” Hokkien Mee.
Established since 1960, Sentul Ah Yap 冼都阿叶福建面海鲜饭店 is still serving the hokkien mee cooked with old charcoal fire, just like what they did back then when it was just a small stall in a kopitiam.
Hokkien Mee 福建面 (Rm 14 for medium portion, 2pax)
Unlike the others which come coated in dark colour, the thick fat noodles were coated in light brown colour. This plate of hokkien char was filled with lots of ingredients such as pork slices, sliced fish cake, prawns and sliced cabbages, not to forget the secret weapon – the crackly crunchy lards bits that tossed in and stir-fried together. The combination of crunchy lard bits paired with the think fat noodles was unforgettable. Although they are using old charcoal fire in stir-frying this noodles dish, it wasn’t come with real fragrant wok hei as if compared with this one in Jalan Cheng Lock which I still find that is the best!
Cantonese Fried 廣府炒 (Rm 14 for medium portion, 2 pax)
It was loaded with lots of ingredients as well, but the taste was forgettable, nothing to shout out about.
Hong Kong Yin Yang “Kai Lan” 香港鸳鸯芥兰 (Rm 15 for small portion)
Three kind of Vege Taufu 三色菜香豆腐 (Rm 15)
Brimmed with minced meat on the tofu, would go great with a bowl of rice as it was on the saltier side.
Nyonya Style Steamed Fish 娘惹蒸鱼
Love the sourish sauce that cooked with lots of spices.
Bitter Gourd with Salted Egg Yolk 咸蛋苦瓜 (Rm 10)
Bitter gourd coated with batter and deep fried into golden brown. The batter was very tempura-liked, except it was flavoured with salted egg yolk. Kinda addictive dish it was and best to go with a glass of chilled beer. Yum!
