Kuala Lumpur - Hakka options at Yap Hup Kee (叶合记美食馆)

klyeoh | Oct 13, 201307:58 AM

It's been more than 3 years since I was last at Yap Hup Kee, a 40+ year old Hakka eatery at Pudu, a KL inner-city precinct which looked like it's stuck in a 70s time-warp.

Yap Hup Kee's claim-to-fame: its Hakka-style "yong tau fu", served with a variety of noodles. Our choice this evening:

- a selection of "yong tau fu" morsels: minced pork wrapped in beancurd sheets, fried wantons filled with a mixture of minced pork and minced fish, also fishpaste-stuffed aubergine and bittergourd.

- Pork meatballs and long beans in a pork broth

- Egg noodles topped with curried chicken and dark soysauce

- "Loh see fun" (老鼠粉) rice noodles topped with curry sauce, minced pork and crisp pork crackling.

- "Loh see fun" (老鼠粉) rice noodles with minced pork, crisp pork crackling and soysauce dressing.

All the noodles dishes were exceptionally good, with a fine balance of flavours, and perfectly textured.
