Low Mee

Loh Mee but spelled as Low Mee by this shop - MYR6 nett. Sourish due to the vinegar in the gooey broth and the noodle is soft so I quite like it.

Pork belly mee hoon (1pax) MYR14 nett - I think that the pork belly has been marinated in some cooking wine as I could taste the alcohol.

Fish Cakes - MYR9 nett - soft

Deep fried bean curd with fish paste - MYR9 nett - very crispy and not oily

3 of us ordered almost all the specialties of this shop

This place is at Bandar Utama Batang Kali. We were in that area for an errand so we stopped by for lunch.

  1. Ulu Yam Loh Mee!! i have not been there for many years, but just have been having loh mee in usual kopitiam/stalls in KL - some are white and some are dark (before adding the vinegar).. the food tends to be cheaper compared to KL, RM6 for a single portion and for the fishcake, i think there are two piece, so it's RM4.50 each - both 50sen cheaper than standard KL price..

  2. I have not tasted Loh Mee for a very long time. The pork belly bee hoon looks very yummy especially when marinated with cooking wine. Both the fish paste variety also look very tasty. Very appetizing post!

  3. This is interesting.. We have the same dish which we called "Lomi" too hehe.. We got such dish after being influenced by Chinese people during the time when we were conquered by them... another similarities we got is the "Bihon" which is "bee hoon" in your country...

    1. I don't think Chinese people conquered your country before. You are right, the noodles should be the same.

  4. I love Loh Mee but it is rare to get good ones these days. My fav used to be at the SS2 wai sek kai there from that botak and friendly uncle. But I seldom go to SS2 anymore these days :(

    1. Wait for it to cool first before eating but then maybe you won't find it as tasty if it is not hot.

  10. Wow!! RM14 for the mee hoon. But ok lah. Have pork belly, my favourite.

    Loh mee is still not for me. Maybe because of the gooey broth. Look gooey. Hahaha.

  13. I'm not too fond of the west coast lor mee. I still prefer the Terengganu style. The pork belly mee hoon is more to my liking!

    1. Let me go and look at your loh mee to see how it looks it again.

  14. The presentation is awesome for a loh mee place! :)

    Haha! I love how they twisted the loh mee into the chopsticks...or did you do that yourself?

    RM 14 for pork noodles seem a little on the high side but it looks good.

    1. I just lifted the noodles with the chopsticks, not really twisting the noodles onto the chopsticks. I think the pork belly is expensive.

    1. No reason, I just don't. Ok well, the gravy, I don't like the gravy's taste, especially when mixed with those thick noodles. It just doesn't work for me..

    2. It is the vinegar taste that you don't like I guess.
