Aik Yuen Restaurant @ Setapak - for glossy and fragrant Hokkien Mee

Where to find a good plate of Hokkien Mee / Hokkien Char?!

Well, Aik Yuen Restaurant that is located at Setapak is one that serves great plate of Hokkien Mee.

Here you go, the glossy looking Hokkien Mee (RM 13 for 2 pax) coated in dark brown colour. Came piping hot and full with real wok heil tossed with right amount of pork lard and other ingredients such as pork slices, squids, prawns and the sweet dark sauce that flavoured and coloured the thick far noodles.

Fried "Peh Ge" (Rice Cake) (RM 6.50) was another good to try. Cooked in the way same as Hokkien Mee;  the only difference is the rice cake that came with chewy texture.

Cantonese Fried (Yin Yong) or Wat Dan Hor (RM 6.50) had the smoky aftertaste. Perhaps the chef forgot to season our Yin Yong; it was tasteless and unmemorable.

That was my first time trying out Stir Fried Siew Yoke (RM 10) in Hokkien style. It was sweet as it was stir-fried with a lot of black sauce. Interesting but i prefer the Cantonese style that made saltier and not in a black-y way.

Though I would not have considered going all the way to Setapak for Hokkien Mee, the sight of stir fried roast pork, batter fried squid and spicy clams got me thinking twice.
