Review: Mee Jawa @ Kedai Kopi dan Makanan Hoi Kee, Segambut


Sitting amongst shop houses and industrial units is this kopitiam (Chinese coffee shop) named Kedai Kopi dan Makanan Hoi Kee. There are a few noodles stalls but the Mee Jawa stall shines here. Since I'm a banana, I won't be able to tell you the name but its the stall right at the front entrance. You can see tonnes of deep fried tofu, eggs, and fritters on the glass display.

For a mere RM3.80, you get a small portion that looked like this...

Give it 180 degree turn...

Mee Jawa 01

Yes, I'm not kidding you! Beneath the pile of "liew" (toppings/ingredients) lie a reasonable portion of yellow noodles with beansprouts (taugeh) topped with a not too thick gravy that is usually made of sweet potatoes. The gravy here is not overpowered with the sweetness of the sweet potatoes with just light hint of aromatics ie shallots, gallangal etc used. As you can see from both the pics above, the mee is topped with generous amount of boiled potatoes, half an egg, at least half a piece of sliced tofu, deep fried fritters and sotong (brown cuttlefish)!

This mee jawa is not only value for money but very delish till the very last bite. To find this place is not hard, it's just a stone throw away from Yu Ai Segambut (the famous seafood noodles).

After passing by Yu Ai on your right, turn left and you'll see the corner shop Kedai Kopi dan Makanan Hoi Kee (Jalan Segambut Selatan) on your right.

I did a search and found that WMW had blogged about this kopitiam but it's the pan mee that she had looked for. Looking thru her pics now I realised they must be good since most table would have those porcelain bowls on them! Will definitely try that next time.
