Sun You Eats: Ahwa Hokkien Mee, PJ

I first heard of Ahwa's famed hokkien mee from MD's tales of his college days of grim eating. So it was only natural that we headed out in search of MD's long lost plate of hokkien mee. Located at PJ section 14, Ahwa can be easily spotted as the first shop at the corner after turning in from the Shell Station intersection. Parking may be a hassle so do play your patience card while at it.

Apart from hokkien mee like most dai chow places other notable dishes also include watan-hor, loh mee and etc. Be prepared to wait for about 15 minutes as most patrons of this restaurant are here for a taste of Ahwa's dishes. So we started off with a side order of lala from one of the other stalls.

This big portion of lala(RM15) comes with a generous portion of lala's. The gravy was cooked with plenty of garlic and dried shrimps proved to be flavourful and slightly spicy much to my liking.

There was altogether 3 of us with MD, island gal and myself so we ordered a portion for 2 person which comes at RM 6 a person. The hokkien mee was dark, tasty and came plentiful with pork fritters. The hokkien noodles in ahwa is cooked over a charcoal fire just like the good old days giving it a very distinct 'wok hei' essence which can only be achieved at cooking over a very high flame while being stirred and tossed quickly.

After both dishes we were still hungry so we ordered another portion of watan hor. I put this dish as my personal favourite over hokkien mee which this place is famous for a few reasons. The flat noodle that came with it had a dominating presence of 'wok hei' which i think is really important in this dish and a nice egg gravy that was smooth and wasnt too starchy like in other places.

Needless to say all 3 of us ended up pretty satisfied with our meals and went back setting sight on our next visit here again.
