After finished reading fried-tomato's blog about Mee Hoon Kuih, it reminded me about one famous Mee Hoon Kuih in Semenyih- Chia Kee Restaurant .Their Mee Hoon Kuih is very stretchy and tender. There are a lot of this kind of stalls in Semenyih but i think this is one of the best among all the stalls. Other than selling Mee Hun Kuih, they also sell fried noodles, Wan Tan Mee, Yee Mee and etc.
Mee Hoon Kuih is a Hokkien dish. It is also known as Pan Meen and when people say about Mee Hoon Kuih, it means the dough is tore into pieces. The picture shows the typical Mee Hoon Kuih served with sayur manis and fried-anchovies in soup that I tried. I think they use anchovies(ikan bilis) as the main ingredient for the soup and because of that, it is sweet. Besides, they able to manage the timing of cooking very well because without the right timing, the Mee Hoon Kuih will come out sticky.
She is the owner of the stall. Beside her you can see the machine she uses to make the dough into one big piece and she will tear it into small pieces by hand. Although they do not make it wholly by hand, but by using this special machine, the Mee Hun Kuih they have is as delicious as the handmake one.
Here is a closer look to the special machine. She is turning the wheel to make the dough to Pan Mee.
The picture showing a delicious looking stewed Pan Mee. I believe that you can't easily get this from other ordinary stalls. The stewed Pan Mee is fried using a steel wok with strong flame cooking style and because of this the gravy has a slight tantalizing taste which makes the Pan Mee more delicious. Yummy yummy…
