Hainanese Taste @ SS2, Petaling Jaya


It's has taken me a while to blog about this place though it's been one of the few places that I have been eating at regularly.  On the other hand, there are lots of regular places which I have yet to blog on ... Meanwhile, let me tell you my usual order whenever I drop by Hainanese Taste (which is operated by the same boss of House of Fishball - 60s Teo Chew Fishball).

I still remember taking Kat and hubby here when they came back for a short holiday and I recommended this to them ...

Mee Pok

My usual order - Dry Mee Pok (with extra sambal chilli and crispy lard).  Kat went back to Abu Dhabi, longing for Mee Pok after being introduced to this noodles.  Looking like Hakka Mee, Mee Pok is of Teochew origin.  Bursting with spicy excitement, the al dente noodles are flavourful and has enough minced pork and crispy lard topping that makes it a satisfying meal each time I have it.  It also comes with a couple of fishball and a few slices of fishcake in a small soup bowl on the side but I only have eyes for the noodles, hahaha...

Mee Pok
All mixed up and ready for chow down!

Hainanese Tea

Down it with an order of good ol' Hainanese Tea ... delightful frothy goodness and you'll leave the restaurant one happy camper!

Hahaha.. I don't even know the name of this place. Just know it as the mee pok place!

You're right - dry mee pok is the main star. There was one time I was at a nearby hair salon for so long and got so hungry, the salon girls told me they do deliveries and lo and behold, mee pok with my hair in curlers!! :D

Lucky you blog about this now. Don't have to wait so long now. :)
