A good dish doesn’t have to be complicated, and that certainly rings true for Hakka noodles or Hakka mee. A typical bowl usually consists of seasoned springy yellow noodles topped with minced pork and chopped spring onions. That being said, here are 7 Hakka Noodles Spots You Can Try in Klang Valley.
If you like your char siew sweet and caramelised with enough ratio of fat, you might want to head over to TNR by Sean & Angie. You can enjoy their signature melt-in-your-mouth char siew with white rice, wantan noodles and even Hakka noodles. Having tried the latter, I do like their springy Hakka noodles, where each bowl comes with minced meat and chopped spring onions. The noodles taste good even on their own but I ordered the one with added char siew. The result? A satisfying combo that pairs well with each other.

Originally based in Seremban since 1948, Restoran Yi Poh also has several branches in KL and PJ areas, namely Sri Petaling and PJ Old Town.

I tried their dry Hakka noodles (you can go for the soup version too) at one of their branches in Asian Avenue in Sunway Pyramid. The savouriness of the noodles tastes appetising enough. And let’s not forget the combination of minced pork, lean char siew meat and chopped spring onions.

This famous Hakka Restaurant may have been over 60 years old. But it still attracts a lot of customers, particularly those who love to crave authentic Hakka cuisines. And not surprisingly, one of the popular dishes available on the menu includes the obligatory Hakka noodles. They offer different versions here, beginning with the plain old-school favourite served with minced pork and spring onions. Alternatively, you can go for the stir-fried variety with pork, dried squids & bean sprouts in black sauce or the braised version with mushrooms, chicken & Chinese cabbage. Prices, in the meantime, are rather on the high side.
