Ho Kien Pan Mee at Subang Jaya SS19

June 10, 2008

This took place last Saturday morning. It was a fine, lovely morning, RuehYinn and I were yearning for something to eat. I guess it is not unusual for a couple to yearn for the same food on the same day. Haha.. So what were we yearning for? We were craving for Mee Huen Koay in Hokkien (RY is Hokkien) or Pan Mee in Cantonese ( I am Cantonese).

If you wanna know where is the best place to eat Pan Mee, other than my mum’s, it has to be at Subang Jaya SS19. The stall’s name is Ho Kien Pan Mee @ Restoran Lian Heng.

Lian Heng

When walking into Restoran Lian Heng, you’ll notice there are only a few stalls in the restaurant. If I am not mistaken you can only find the Ho Kien Pan Mee stall, one economical rice (chap fun) stall, a Chee Cheung Fun stall and a drink stall. It’s apparent that the Ho Kien Pan Mee is the source of attraction for the restaurant. Don’t be surprise if you notice almost 99% people are eating the pan mee.

The Stall

So, what’s so good about this Pan Mee?

First and foremost, it has to be the texture of the pan mee. It is thinly hand shredded and very smooth. The feeling when you put into your mouth is very unique. It is very tender and chewy. I prefer hand shredded pan mee than the machine shredded. Not only it means the cook has certain level of skills but also only with hand shredding, one is able to “pull” the dough to the right thickness…voila!

The second has to be the taste of the soup. It tastes so fresh and delicious with deep fried ikan bilis (anchovies), thinly sliced mushrooms, meat slices, minced pork and RuehYinn’s favorite cangkuk manis leaves. The blend of all the ingredients make the soup so tasty…mmMMMMmmm!

If you are chilli lover, you cannot miss their freshly made blended green chilli sauce. I love a little bit of chilli sauce on my pan mee but RuehYinn doesn’t like it. He reasoned that he wants to preserve the original taste of the pan mee. Don’t you think that is just an excuse when the fact is he cannot take spicy food…haha.

The Stall

In addition to all that, the price is reasonable. If I was not mistaken it used to be RM3.50 for small bowl and RM4.00 for big bowl. But that morning, the price of small bowl pan mee is RM3.80 and the big bowl is RM4.30. That is RM0.30 increased. We still can absorb the increase before getting upset and boycott the stall..hahaha.. that shows how much we love the pan mee…

Ohh, not to forget you can order sugar cane or coconut drink at the entrance of the restaurant. But RuehYinn and I still prefer hot drinks in the morning.

P.S. I have to warn you guys, however, the wait can be very very lonnnggggg. We waited for 30 minutes before getting our Pan Mee. This is the first stall that we came about that provide EQS (Electronic Queing System), MQS, we called it Manual Queing System. What happen is, after you have ordered your pan mee, you will be given a small cardboard with a number on it. Now, keep the bad habit of looking around for other people’s number. No, no.. it is not rude but it can be depressing when you see your number is so big gap compare to others. My advice is, once you order your pan mee, find a good spot, sit down, chit chat and enjoy the companion. By the way, it is RuehYinn’s advice. He said by looking around you will get high blood pressure…

Number

But I guarantee you guys that the wait is all worthwhile. So now, go start your engine and drive there now. The address is as follow:-

Ho Kien Pan Mee
Restoran Lian Heng
22, Jalan SS19/6
Subang Jaya

Time of Operation: No idea but go in the morning and I am not surprise it’s sold out in the afternoon.

The pan mee was so nice that we decided to buy back for RuehYinn’s parents and they love it so much too !

Kudos, you guys have done a good job:-
