Wonton Noodle at Hung Kee Shamelin
There is no introduction to this name, Hung Kee. They are a household name in serving top notch wonton noodle in Jalan Loke Yew, Kuala Lumpur. A couple years ago, they sold their restaurant together with their brand name for a hefty sum to a group of investors. Instead of doing franchising, the new owners of Hung Kee opened a new branch in Taman Shamelin Perkasa, Cheras and continue to deliver the same old wonton noodle.
The outlet in Taman Shamelin Perkasa (located opposite the Pudu Ulu Park) is around a for quite some time. Thus, it is located just next to my previous workplace so Hung Kee Shamelin used to be my usual eating place. After one year of absence, I revisit my usual breakfast and lunch playground.
In Hung Kee, you must order their signature wonton noodle. The usual wonton noodle comes with char siew (BBQ pork) and bowl of wontons. Since I was a regular, they know I love the “three layers” char siew and the bowl of wontons come with a generous amount of wontons (approx. five to six wontons). Even though the wontons contain only minced meat but they are large in size than the average ones.
The egg noodle is gorgeous as Hung Kee mixes the noodles with three different types of oil. Their char siew and siew yoke (roast pork belly) is one of the best in KL. Their char siew is tender and almost melt in the mouth (for “three layers” char siew) and their siew yoke is crispy on the skin and tender on the meat. Even though the plate of wonton noodle might look messy but you will definitely no regrets having it. On top of their wonton noodle, you should also check out their sang har noodle at RM 30 per plate for one person portion.
