We first tried Kim Lian Kee 金莲记福建面美食馆 back in 2010 when we visited Lot 10 Hutong, and ever since then, we have been going back there whenever we have a craving for Hokkien Mee. They have been operating since 1927 in Petaling Street, using charcoal fire to cook their noodles. The Hokkien mee here even inspired us to cook our own at home.
Anyway, Kim Lian Kee recently opened a new outlet at The Gardens Mall, so we decided to check it out. The location is beside Canton-i (same level as Cold Storage). There are several types of noodles on their menu, including char koay teow, Cantonese style noodles, meehoon as well as side dishes such as fried wantans and meat balls. However, most people come here for their famous Hokkien Mee (RM12.90).
The noodles are coated in a delicious dark sauce, with other ingredients such as prawns, cuttlefish and vegetables. Not very attractive looking, but definitely tasty with plenty of wok hei!
I tried the loh mee (RM12.90) previously at their other outlet and enjoyed it - so having it again here at the new outlet! Since its table service here, they give u a whole bottle of vinegar to drizzle (as much as u like) over the loh mee. Over here, they also top the noodles with lots of crispy pork lard (chee yau char). Super yummy, even Hubby enjoyed a few small bowls of this with me :)
Price: Total bill RM28.40, inclusive 10% service charge.
Location: Kim Lian Kee, Lower Ground Floor, The Gardens, Mid Valley City, 59200 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. (next to Canton-i)
