3. Hokkien Noodle
Do not confuse with KL’s version of Hokkien noodle from Penang or Johor because they are not the same thing. Penang’s version is called prawn noodle in KL while the Johor’s version is totally different.
Originated from Petaling Street, Hokkien noodle is founded by Kim Lian Kee. The history is more than 80 years, Hokkien noodle is available everywhere in most Chinese restaurants or food courts/outlets.
Using thick noodles, it is stir fried to almost black in colour thanks to the thick black sauce. There is also no shortage with fried pork lards in this noodle. The most important of perfecting the Hokkien noodle is depending on the “wok kei” (the heat during cooking).
There are many good places to have Hokkien Noodle and the original comes from Kim Lian Kee. They have many franchise outlets throughout Klang Valley but the original is in Petaling Street.

4. Wonton Noodle
There are many types of wonton mee in the country. There are “white version” of wonton mee in the Southern Peninsula Malaysia as well as the ones that come with chili or tomato paste. Singapore’s version comes with chili and tomato paste and Hong Kong version’s is lighter and less flavourful.
KL’s version of wonton mee focuses more on the type of thin noodles and the char siew (BBQ pork). In fact, you can’t find any prawns in the wonton anymore. Thus, wontons in KL generally use minced pork with hints of white pepper.
Few of the most popular wonton noodles in KL are Koon Kee in Petaling Street and Hung Kee in Loke Yew road. It is also the widely available in most food courts/outlets and the Halal version substitutes the pork with BBQ chicken.
