Here’s a review on the new Fei Loh Hokkien Mee in SS2, PJ.
Being a Klangite, I’m quite an eater especially for hokkien dishes. Besides the famous Klang Bah Kut Teh, I do like other hokkien food too. When I was passing through SS2 about a week ago, something in bright blue caught my attention. Last night, I just couldn’t resist when I saw the new shop is already in business and they are serving my favourite Hokkien Mee!
The shop is just located along the same roll with AFFIN-ISLAMIC Bank and it’s two shops away from SS2 Teo Chew porridge shop and the new Korean BBQ shop (formerly Foh San Restaurant branch). Kind of hard to miss it if you’re a frequent user of the road from SS14 passing thru to SS3 in PJ.
The shop is brightly lighted and very cosy, that’s because they had all their aircons and ceiling fans running… for now. The deco of the shop is fairly impressive but it’s definitely nicer than the other ordinary hokkien mee shops. With the wooden tables and nice clean environment, dining there is quite comfortable. The have about 20 tables in the shop and each table can comfortably fit 4 people.
There’s only 2 of us and I wasn’t feeling very hungry so we only ordered 2 dishes, Hokkien Mee and Yin Yong Kung Fu Chow (Yin Yong Cantonese style). Oh yes, they just started business on April 6 and they are having a promo till the 16th. So any single portion dish of noodle only cost RM3. Reasonbly cheap for a plate of noodle nowadays.
Fei Loh, the boss himself took our order. Sadly, their service is rather sluggish. After waiting for 10 minutes, we still haven’t got our drinks. They even forgot our orders and had to come over to take it again. After another good 10 minutes of more, the food came.
The hokkien mee looks rather good (dry and slightly sticky) and the yin yong too look really good. The presentation of the food is rather nice with generous amount of pork, shrimps, sotong (squid), cabbage and most importantly, chu yau cha (fried pork lard).
Though both dishes look good but sadly there’s nothing to shout about. Both dishes taste rather ordinary so we didn’t finish everything. For someone who enjoys food, I’ve tried much better hokkien mee and yin yong in some other parts of Klang Valley.
Amy, who was much hungrier than me wasn’t quite satisfied with the food either. You can tell from the look on her face :P
Although it’s not up to my standard, Fei Loh Hokkien Mee might appeal to others. So you don’t have to take my words for it. The bill came up to RM9.50 for 2 plates of noodle, a glass of iced soya cincau and a cup of hot tea which is rather reasonable. The only thing I like about the place is the nice clean environment. Fei Loh, the owner was quite a humble person too. Perhaps I should give it a second try one day since they have other dishes that I haven’t tried especially the fried lala.
Here’s the owner, he really lives up to his name :)
