Review: Restoran Thiam Sang @ Serdang Perdana


I first noted this place after watching 1 Day 5 Meals... then I saw the same name plastered on the guide book. So one evening we went over to Serdang Perdana (where South City Plaze is) to look for this Restoran Thiam Sang.

Thiam Sang

This was the menu presented to us... hmmmm the heart looked very familiar! Omigosh... as I scrutinised the menu further, it mentioned HQ: PJ Jalan 222. So this is part of the famous Restoran AhWa at Jalan 222, PJ!!! Hmmm very good indeed.

Thiam Sang

The best part about the menu is they're pictorial... very good to entice clients what to have especially in my case here... I've already placed our order of Hokkien Mee and Sang Har Meen (fresh water prawns noodles) BUT the Fart boiboi saw the visual of the koay teow version has an egg cracked over it and he insisted of having that! Sighhh I've to cut down the portion of our earlier order and gave in to him. Funny when I saw Mouthwatering Food - Hams and Eggs posting of AhWa last week but there isn't any egg cracked over their plate of koay teow??

So boiboi's preference of koay teow (RM6 for individual portion) came first... looks good eh??? Tasted good too, no kidding cos my boiboi ate 2/3 of the plate! The egg made the noodles slippery smooth and added eggy fragrant to it. Back in the old days, my mom used to tell me that her dad would pack Hokkien mee home for supper and whilst it is hot, he will crack one egg in, mix them up before devouring.

Fried Koay Teow (RM6 single portion)

This Hokkien Mee was quickly polished off! Done just the way I liked it... DRY and DARK! Wok hei (breath of the wok) is good here and of course the crisp chu yau char (deep fried lard) gave the ultimate flavour to it... *crunch crunch* yums... It has to be good since I usually pick the chu yau char and set it aside cos I'm pretty health concious *cough*, but this one I ate 'em all kekeke!!!

Hokkien Mee (RM6 single portion)

I was enticed to order Sang Har Meen (if not mistaken it's RM10 per portion) since they cook this right up in front of the shop. Very smart strategy since the smell and the look of the prawns on top of the deep fried fresh noodles make every tongue wags for some!

The moment the hot plate was placed on the table, the whaft of Shao Shing wine enveloped us... it just made me drool! The noodles were crisp and placed on a hot plate made the gravy sizzled. In anticipating that the gravy will dry up, they gave extra in a separate bowl. How thoughtful!

The eggy gravy was not too starchy and tasted wonderful but some people might balk at the amount of Shao Shing wine in there. I like though. Our only issue with this is the freshness of the prawns. Of the lot, Capt'n Hook and I, each have one not so fresh prawn and the size of the prawns weren't as huge as those at Green View.

Fresh Water Prawns Sizzling Noodle

Best part noted in our book is YAY people who lives towards the southern part of Kuala Lumpur don't have to go all the way to PJ for AhWa Hokkien Mee!!!!

I miss hot plate noodles, I can hardly get them here in the US, I mean, it's just the hot plate, but it makes the noodles so much more sizzling good. Wonder why the Chinese restaurants in the US don't use them more.
