Best Mee Suah in Johor Bahru (JB)

Written by Updated ago

Comforting, compelling and constantly unrecognised – mee suah is a delightful dish that hasn’t enjoyed a fair share of fame in the noodle scene. One would immediately think it as a meal that befits once you’re down with cold or favoured only by the old. Presumptuously saying - a good bowl of mee suah can stand against the most sinful and hyped noodles out there. This thread-thin noodle is commonly served in a broth, loaded with meat or seafood and handful of vegetables. Moreover, mee suah is widely celebrated as “Long Life Noodles” by Fujian Chinese; therefore gobble down the balmy bowl without a single guilt up your mind. These feted eateries in Johor Bahru guarantee to change your previous notions and turn you into a mee suah aficionado, forever.

The best seller here is their Oyster Mee Sua – a dish that triumphs in both texture and flavour. The key here is the stock which is made from secret ingredients, drenched on homemade silky smooth noodles and topped with fresh oysters and shredded chicken.

    Yong Hwa Kuey Teow

    This famed eatery is no stranger to the locals, especially those who go head over heels for meaty galore in a soupy bowl. Upon entering, be spoilt for choices as fresh ingredients are laid on a bed of ice cubes such as fish slices, abalone slices, fish cakes and prawns, to name a few. You might have guessed already, cherry-pick your favourite toppings and hand it over to the master who ladles a flavourful broth on the noodle of your choice. Koey Teow may top the noodle selection yet their mee suah deserves a special mention too. This soul-warming bowl is best consumed with chopped chillies and dash of soy sauce.

    Beans Talk

    Fellow vegetarians, we do hear your scream too. Beans Talk is a popular Taiwanese restaurant that offers both vegetarian and non-vegetarian mee suah. The vegetarian bowl boasts the noble addition of shiitake mushroom to resemble oysters as it’s juicy and soft in nature, while the soup is thick, flavourful and absolutely divine. The eminently slurpable thin noodles and a smattering of herbs round up a memorable meal. And leaving this charming eatery without chomping down their famous desserts is close to a crime.
