Kuala Lumpur - Fatty Mee Hoon Kuih House @ Berkeley Garden, Klang

Just mention "mee hoon kueh" (a Hokkien-Chinese word which literally translates into "rice flour cake") and someone would inadvertently recommend this spot in Berkeley Gardens in the port ctity of Klang, 20 miles south of KL.

I was here for lunch today - actually, I don't have a strong affinity for soupy noodles, but curiosity got the better of me - I just wanted to see ... and taste how good Fatty's "mee hoon kuih" really is, after hearing so much about it from literally every other person I spoke to.

The restaurant was located in a typical Chinese shophouse and, on a typical Saturday afternoon at lunch-time, was pretty full - but one only needed to wait for 5 minutes or so for a table to be cleared (turnover is pretty fast as Klang folks normally eat & run).

The "mee hoon kuih" were balls of soft flour dough which were hand-pressed and hand-shredded into pots of boiling pork-flavored broth. The resultant soup dish was light & flavorsome, the thin leaves of boiled noodles had a fine texture, the slivers of pork were cooked just right, and the wands of "choy sum" vegetables were blanched lightly so it retained its color & crunch. I opted to add an egg into the soup, which added a milky richness to the soup. Your bowl of noodles will be topped with crisp-fried "ikan bilis" (anchovies) just before serving.

Was it worth the drive to Klang for this simple bowl of noodles? Oh, yes-sirree!
