And the one name that came up is the Aik Yuen Hokkien Mee located at Setapak, and with the Tawakal Hospital being the landmark.
The location is not that difficult to find, being just a lil off Bulatan Pahang.
And so there I was. At one of those restaurants that 'conquer' the streets, with its tables and chairs. Personally I prefer this arrangement as its less hot than sitting inside.
I ordered the stir fried pork belly with garlic as starters. It was a unique dish for me, as I've never had such before.
And the other dish I ordered was non other than what I came for - the hokkien mee! I was actually looking forward to it.
It looked good.. but I was a lil disappointed for I like my Hokkien mee dry, which this wasn't.
And the pork lard wasn't that much either, which is not good cos hokkien mee needs this - lots!
Owh and the chilli.. a lil to runny, and thin. Again, not the usual style I like.
But saying all these, it ain't bad. It's actually still ok. The crowd is there to prove it.
But for me, this probably ain't on top of my list. You can still try this if you are a foodie, and rate it for yourself.
