D Uptown Hokkien Mee at Kuchai

I have heard about this place but as I seldom go to Damansara Uptown, I have not tried it. One day I noticed that there is a branch which has just started business in Kuchai Lama so I dropped by for an early dinner since it only opens at 5pm every day.

Hokkien Mee for 1 pax - MYR9 + 6% GST = MYR9.55 - Not as nice as I expected it to be because the gravy is a bit on the watery side


Pork Soup Mee Hoon (1 pax) - MYR9.50 + 6% GST = MYR10.05 and I did not know that the soup is peppery when I ordered it but it was ok for me, not too hot. The thing I like about it is that it has a lot of vegetables in it.

They have Loh Mee too. (please click on the menu above)

Not too bad for a 2-pax meal but there is a more affordable and tastier Hokkien Mee in this area but in less comfortable settings which is at a roadside stall

We were there about 5pm just after it has opened for business for the day so only one other table was occupied.

  1. I remember having this DU hokkien mee almost everyday when I was pregnant with Ethan at the Kota Dsara branch. After delivering him until today, I rarely eat it anymore.

    I don't like peppery soup. I don't mind chili spicy soup but not peppery hot stuffs.

  2. I think it's a bit too dark, pass me the pork soup. Yes, it can be quite peppery at some places there...like pepper is free of charge or what but I guess one can tell them to cut down on that when ordering, like what I would tell the sellers here - less msg!

  5. This one at Uptown is very popular but my partner said he is not too fond of it. Tiong Hokkien Mee which is a few doors away is much better. I have tried it and I agree.

    1. Don't think I will get to try Tiong Hokkien Mee because I am seldom in Uptown in the evening.

  6. That Hokkien mee was so black. Wow! I hate eating Hokkien mee because it can be messy and your mouth would be all black from the gravy. Lol.

    I never enjoy peppery soup so I would usually requested them to sparingly use pepper when I ordered soup dish.

  7. I've been asking my spouse to take me to this hokkien mee but he says he doesn't like it, so I never got to try (but I still want to try). Is that a roasted meat stall in front? Maybe can go this one and he can have that instead ;)

  8. Maybe you need to go to the original shop in Uptown lah. Branches rarely tell the real picture one... For my my favorite Hokkien Mee still the one at the back alley behind Lai Foong kopitiam near Petaling Street.

  10. For a moment, I thought the noodles are made from purple sweet potatoes! hahahaa... I think it is the lighting..

    1. It is not the lighting as the pork noodle is taken under the same lighting and the colours are all right. This hkm is really too dark!

  11. This post is certainly a good reminder as I am supposed to bring my nephew to eat this DU Hokkien Mee when he arrives from Melbourne. I would always order extra fried lard for myself after doctor confirmed that it is good for our joints! Yay!

    1. Really? Fried lard is good for joints? Many people would be happy to hear this. Your nephew will be very happy that you are bringing him around to eat all the good food.
