Review: San Kee Fried Noodles @ Jinjang Utara


Thank you for all your well wishes which is going to make us work harder to maintain this blog ;-)

So back to food blogging...

We have been introduced to this stall, San Kee, in Jinjang Utara by my friend ArthurT. We always bug him to bring us there ever since he keep mentioning how delish the hokkien fried noodles are. He finally brought us there, but that was some years back. We never make our way back as we were not familiar with the area. Recently, we bugged him again and things could happen rather quickly, no thanks to technology :p So a bunch of us waited for ArthurT at the Petronas kiosk for him to lead us in, yay!

Fire, fire, wok on fire

Ahhh not only the familiar smell greets us, the sight of hot fiery wok is sooo welcoming, knowing that lip smacking noodles coming our way. We let ArthurT to do the order, whilst the rest of the friends catch up in real for once rather via technology :D

This is the breath of the wok

The first dish of noodles that came was this greasy looking Dry-fry Hor Fun (flat rice noodles). Tastewise was not bad but the noodles are a bit limp and greasy.

The next dish that arrived was our most anticipated Hokkien Fried Thick Noodles! Wahhh it was so fab and practically flying off the plate. The glistened noodles are filled with wok hei (breath of the wok) albeit the soy sauce used here is slightly sweeter than normal. I supposed if you don't fancy a little sweetness in your savouries, this might not be your cup of tea. We also loved the crunch of the generous amount of chu yau char (deep fried lard).

Hokkien Mee

Next we have the Fried Pak Kor Meen (fried rice cake where pak kor is also known as Shanghai Nin Go) done Hokkien style. No regrets for this. The right amount of celery leaves (cunt {pardon me but that's how it's pronounce :p} choy in Cantonese or daun sup in Malay) gave a subtle hint to the noodle dish.

Pak Kor Meen

As we have another friend who arrived late, we ordered 2 more plates of single portion for Fried Hokkien Mee and Pak Kor Meen which actually turned out tastier than our 2 portions size earlier. I supposed the wok hei is more when a smaller portion is fried, hence the noodles were more fragrant and drier in appearance.

All noodles down with gusto with the accompaniments of sambal and fresh chillies.

Since ArthurT was so generous and paid for our meal, I've no idea how much it costed us but it should be rather reasonable.

To get here, from Jalan Kepong (going towards Kepong from KL with DBKL on your right, there's a traffic light here) turn right into Jalan Jinjang Utama. Go all the way in, passing the field on your left then followed by Jinjang Police Station on your right. Then there's a slight bend where you keep going straight and you should see the police quarters on your right. Follow on straight till a T-junction where you'll see River South Road or Jalan Tebing Selatan. There would be new shoplots on the left. Sang Kee is actually directly across this T-junction. You can park right there in front of the stall but it has limited space though.
