Jalan Petaling Famous Malaysian Street Food – KL Style Hokkien Mee And Kam Heong Crabs in Serangoon
Sometimes, enjoying street food in a casual setting is better than dining out in a fine dining restaurant. Travellers who visit Kuala Lumpur will fondly remember Petaling Street as a vibrant street filled with shopping and food vendors. Now, you don’t have to fly all the way there to Malaysian street food because Jalan Petaling Famous Malaysian Street Food has opened in myVillage @ Serangoon (YES, AIR CON)!
Bringing Malaysian street food closer to you, expect traditional hawker favourites and authentic Malaysian cuisine. Sink your teeth into the all-time favourite, “Kam Heong” Crab, a signature Malaysian stir-fry style that is renowned for the fragrance. Stir fried with their homemade kam heong sauce and curry leaves, the crabs are full of strong flavours. They sell in standard price of $68 for 2 crabs.
When you have an awesome assam paste and fresh fish, what you get is an excellent pot of Assam Curry Fish Head ($25). Served with red snapper, the curry gravy is smooth and not too spicy — so good that it can be savoured on its own. Prawns Fried with Egg Floss and Oatmeal is special because of the egg floss. Those fresh prawns are deep-fried till golden brown and pairs well with strands of egg floss.
KL Seafood Hokkien Mee ($8.80) is all about thick noodles smothered in glistening dark soy sauce with a distinct “wok hei”. It’s luscious, it’s intense and has a very satisfying bite factor. The sauce, so black and rich, imparts a rich and deep flavour, enhanced by the use of lard.
Another similar and equally popular dish is the Claypot Mee Tai Mak ($6.80). Slurp the slippery noodles with each bite delivering the smoky flavour from the searing wok. Of course, all thanks to the lard that was infused in the sauce, making it a simple yet very tasty dish.
If you have been to Malacca recently, you probably have tried or heard about the Cheesy Big Prawn Bee Hoon from Restoran Tong Sheng. They have it here at Jalan Petaling as well! Not quite the same sadly, I was expecting the sauce to be richer and the bee hoon to coat the sauce better. But maybe I should give them another chance because they were only a few months old.
Other worthy dishes include, the meaty Roasted Duck, well marinated and roasted to golden brown crisp skin. For something light, you can opt for their Hakka Yong Tou Fu with all ingredients prepared in house. Oh yes, they also have Malaysian style bak kut teh. Aiyo, so many things to eat and such a ideal location for foodies to feast at, it’s time to jalan jalan to Jalan Petaling soon!
