Kah Ping Mee Hoon Kueh

There are many good food in Klang. From Bah Kut Teh, Hokkien style fried noodle, pork rib rice, seafood, rojak, cendol and many more. Most of these exist since decades ago, inherited from generation to generation. Some improved some not and eventually close out. Some changed the business model to conform the current trend, such as this stall...




Kah Ping, a stall selling Mee Hoon Kueh, or commonly aka Pan Mee in KL area. This is Kah Ping's first stall (moved from a shop house nearby) since decades, usually is crowded with people during lunch. Look at the blind, you probably could imagine the hot weather when the sun is raging right above your head, heat surrounding the stall and the sweat those diners have to perspire to enjoy the hot dish. Well, not for me~ if I have a choice...


Yeah... Kah Ping has another new branch opened in Bukit Tinggi Klang. And this is not a stall but a restaurant with air conditioner...


A very simple setup but most important is the blowers right below the ceiling :)

Come to food. This branch seems to offer more varieties of Mee Hoon Kueh (than the first stall) and I ordered a bowl of bitter gourd Mee Hoon Kueh...




Something you must not miss when you eat Mee Hoon Kueh...



The ikan bilis or anchovies and cili padi or bird's eye chili. Put them all together for a marvellous taste...


You probably need some chilled drink after the hot bowl. If you're a coffee lover, I recommend Kah Ping Special...


Or just get a glass of barli ice...


Look at the barley sunk at the bottom of the glass. It's still the authentic cooked barley drink, not the artificial powder most of the restaurants offer nowadays.

Kah Ping may seem overshadow by another popular Mee Hoon Kueh restaurant near my old house, the Tua Pui Fatty Mee Hun Kuih, but I find it comparable though. There must be a reason to its survival since 1953, right?

If you like to sweat, Kah Ping HQ is located at Jalan Gelugor (GPS coordinate N3 03.025 E101 27.069), the hawker stall is right behind Maybank. If you are made of candle like me (melt when hot) and prefer air conditioned restaurant, head to Jalan Sentosa 5 (or GPS coordinate N3 00.786 E101 25.894) at Bukit Tinggi Klang, somewhere near Giant Bukit Tinggi Klang. Here's the business hour of its branch...
