Hokkien Mee @ Night Street Food, Jelutong Market!
*This post is written on WordPress on Android. KayaButter are trying out blogging-on-the-go. Not sure how it goes. So, the post is not too lengthy and very specific. Photos taken using Galaxy Note 2. Pardon us for the quality of the photo*
It has been a while that KayaButter paid a visit to our favourite Hokkien Mee (Prawn Mee) at the Jelutong Market area at night.
The Hokkien Mee taste is still maintained even after so many years. Kaya was introduced to this Hokkien Mee stall when I was around 20++ years old. The soup is rich in prawn flavour. It is a bit sweet for some but to me, it is good! 😛 Kaya has a sweet tooth. The soup of Hokkien Mee will make or break the dish. This soup is good but not the best yet.
This Hokkien Mee comes with pig intestines but KayaButter are not fan of internal organs. So, Kaya can’t comment about that. The portion might be small for some. So, you might need to order the big one (RM4.20). Oh ya, the small prawns are sliced into half. A bit ‘potong stim’. Hehe 🙂
Butter orders her favorite fried rice. The stall is just besides the Hokkien Mee stall. Butter does not frequent the stall for a while because Butter feels that the owner’s son fries a better fried rice than the owner himself. That night, it is his daughter who fries the fried rice.
The fried is acceptable. Not too bad yet not so special for any mention. It just tasted different than what Butter had when the owner’s elder son fries. Oh ya, one thing good is that the fried rice is not too oily.
We takes our seats near the stall which sells fruit juices and sugar cane juice. The seats near the Hokkien Mee stall is not that clean as those seats are near the drain. The lady boss suggests to us to try her orange-apple-pineapple mix fruit juice. She said that it is good for detox and our skin. Butter is interested and ordered one.
Our verdict? The mix fruit juice is good and it is not too sour or too sweet. The tastes of orange, apple and pineapple mix very well and do not overpower each other. We might want to DIY in our home. Hehe 🙂
Kaya ordered the sugar cane. Not bad but it is not as fresh and not as good as the one KayaButter had at Batu Lanchang market food court. Kaya suspects that they prepared the sugar cane juice earlier in a flask. 🙁
There is a famous ‘tong shui’ shop near these stalls. KayaButter will cover that next time. Stay tuned! 🙂
