    Housed in Jelutong Night Market, this renowned stall is one of the finest places to get your mee goreng fix. Expect never-ending beeline of patrons who watch their favourite dish prepared with excellent fire control and lickety-split spinning and tossing that certainly increases your hunger pangs. The noodles are rather darker in colour yet the flavours do shackle onto your taste buds. Thanks to the usage of charcoal flame, each mouthful lends a smoky overtone and you would polish clean the itty-bitty gravy that glues onto the plate.

Spicy, savoury, sweet and served steaming hot with chockfull of ingredients, it’s a clear winner.

    Mee Goreng CRC

    Housed in Kedai Makanan Seong Huat, this humble stall is fairly a living legacy, spanning over three generations and has never seen a dip in fame. There are two dishes to choose from – Mee Goreng and Mee Rebus, both are impeccably good. The fried mee may appear seemingly simple, yet it scores high in terms of flavours, which matters the most, always. The sauce is the key here, prepared from heirloom recipes guarded with pride and zeal and you can opt for slivers of mutton, beef or chicken to accompany the yellow noodles, tofus, potatoes and prawn fritter cubes. And for a dose of heat, do add their chopped chillies. So good, our former Malaysian King was a patron of this stall.

    Besides their rave-worthy nasi kandar, you have another reason to visit this feted restaurant –mee goreng. If you think you’re expecting a cut from the same cloth, they are eager to prove you wrong. Yellow noodles are fried under scorching heat with sauces, eggs, and assorted deep-fried goodies and then come the real deal, chunks of tender chickens laced together. A sprinkling of fried onions and chopped lettuce complete the drool-inducing platter that sits on a banana leaf to safeguard the wok hei fragrance.
