Heng Kee (Hokkien Noodle) @ Sea Park, PJ

I am trying to delete off some old collection of photos from my USB to make way for new ones. Some I have no qualm of doing so, but some I have second thoughts. I do not like posting on backdated photos simply because there are just too much research to do, for example the address of the place, operating hours and the price. But I guess this post is pretty easy to do as I could just refer to the person who brought me here: WMW.

I have been living in PJ SS2 for most of my life and yet I have never step foot into Sea Park for dinner. It just never cross our mind to do so. WMW was raving about the Hokkien Noodle served at Heng Kee which is located at a corner coffee shop facing the former Ruby cinema (now Damansara Utama Methodist Church). In fact, my Makan Gang was raving about this place too and from what I heard, Heng Kee is run by two brothers in which he claimed that one of them cooks better Hokkien Noodle and the other Cantonese Noodle. Confirmed by WMW, the elder brother is the one Hokkien Noodle expert.

The Hokkien Noodle expert aka The Elder Brother! He was pointing to the menu above him which is the 2nd photo).

Take a pick! According to my Makan Gang, the Cantonese Noodle is not too bad but it was Hokkien Mee that we wanted for dinner. Next time maybe.

The Elder Brother was excited when he saw me with a camera. He said "wait"...and I waited, wondering why I should wait. Before a splash of stock onto the hot wok, he asked me "Ready"?. "Yes", I replied. Suddenly I heard a "SPLASH" followed by "POOOFFFF"! I managed to snap a picture before running away from the flame. Wooo..hot hot hot!!!

Our order was Hokkien Mee Hoon (vermicelli) for 2 pax. WMW prefers having only meehoon as it fully absorbed the gravy and hence more flavourful and tasty. True enough, it was good! And upon WMW's request, lots of fried lard (chue yau char) was tossed with the meehoon together with slices of pork, fish cakes, prawns and choy sum. I have never had so much fried lard in one meal in my life. Every mouthful was accompanied with pieces and pieces of crispy juicy lards.

Sinful but so satisfying! Do wash down with lots of chinese tea! Yumz!

Hello Ivy, love your posting and that photo of the fire going, 'poof' is outstanding! Beautiful shot!
I love photography, but more on portraits, making women beautiful thru my lens.
What? Stay in PJ never been to SEA park? Ha ha.
I stayed around there one time, short while.
By coincidence, I just last night posted something about SEA park too. But not on food.

Can see you someone who lives to eat, huh?
Me? I eat to live...
You stay easy and keep well, best regards, Lee.

Nic (KHKL) said...

i agree mee hoon absorbs the flava...but i usually go for the meehoon+kway teow combo for a better texture...so much lard! i like!!! oh, the sambal belacan as well ;)

ling239 said...

so much chue yau char!!
must taste really good....^_^

Precious Pea said...

NJoe: Should be renamed at Pork Lard Noodle.

Nic: I like combo too! I like noodle with meehoon. Oh yes...a good spicy belacan would really spice up any good or even really bad hokkien noodle.

ling239: Haha..yes wor..really really taste sinful.

Bangsar-bAbE said...

OMG...so much pork lard!! I love hokkien mee with plenty of lard. Must have been a damn good plate of noodles. ;)

patcheskhoo said...

Former ruby cinema is now also former Damansara utama methodist church..the church has since moved to section 16, :)

New Kid on the Blog said...

Wow!!! So man chue yau char??!!!! Oh my goodness!!!!

backstreetgluttons said...

This is one of the better shops in PJ selling this big noodle. Pity they are situated underground so have been grossly understated at best. ( only award winning WMW can discover this kind of goddess forsaken place )
LOL !

Jun said...

u shud try the fried kuey teow here, very nice! :D

Precious Pea said...

bangsar-babe: Oh yes...it was really good lard noodle.

patcheskhoo: ML!! You still visit my blog ar? How are you? Thanks for the info, like i said...i rarely venture into SeaPark so i don't even know the church relocated. So, that place is vacant now?

nkotb and BSG: With WMW around (she seems to know quite a number of good cooks around PJ including pasar malam), sure all 'gar liu'.

Jun: Same stall you mean? The char kuey teow is the penang style?

J2Kfm said...

thank goodness its the beehoon! I can't stand Hokkien mee with the thick yellow noodles.
but this one looks yummy enough!
and the crunchy pork lards are OK once-in-a-while. :)

sc said...

i prefer the hokkien mee at the other side of the road (near Giant)..yummy too. actually there's 4 famous spots in seapark for hokkien mee.. this is one of them :)

Precious Pea said...

j2kfm: Thick yellow noodle nice as long as it's not laden with alkaline.

sc: Issit?? Wanna go for Hokkien noodle crawl??

daphne said...

wah.. look at the fire!

wmw said...

Hahah...glad you like it. Mmm, we should try the kway teow version then next time.

mimid3vils said...

First time I see Hokkien Bee Hoon fried this way. The color tells me it's very tasty :)

Simon Seow said...

Crunchasarus Rex said...

Quite different from singapore's hokkien mee.

Precious Pea said...

daphne: Full of wok hei!

wmw: Good idea and also SC said there are 3 other good ones around that area too.

mimid3vils: Hahaha..seems like another of pork lard fan here.

tigerfish: I know some people refer to Prawn Mee as Hokkien Mee too so I do not know exactly how many version they have.

simon: actually what is bomba's number??

crunchasarus rex: How different is it?

Simon Seow said...

Now all emergency back to one number again. That's 999.
