Recently we ‘discovered’ this place called New Ching San Ah Hwa Hokkien Mee (I know, the name is long) that serves very nice ‘zi char’. Of course, the word ‘discovered’ is not very appropriate to be used because we had pass by this shop numerous time and had know it attract quite a big crowd, although not as much as its nearby neighbor – Damansara Utama Hokkien Mee.
The most popular stuffs here are the Hokkien Mee, Wah Tan Hor and Loh Mee. For 2 subsequent visits we’re here, I haven’t seen anyone order for their fried rice or other food but glimpsed a few tables ordered for the fried chicken wings.
Their Hokkien Mee was delicious and aromatic, partly from the pork lard they used and partly from the amazing ‘wok hei’.
To me, a good Wah Tan Hor is defined by hor fun that won’t clump together, gravy that’s not too gluey or watery and its taste should come from good choice of soy sauce instead of salt. New Ching San’s Wah Tan Hor, pretty much fits our requirement of a good Wah Tan Hor. More points to them for providing the green chilies in vinegar to complement the zi char. I always find it frustrating that most zi char in Klang Valley only provide the bird’s eyes chilies and the standard cili giling .
If you’re looking for this place, lookout for the signboard that says Dim Sum Kitchen instead. We think it might be the name of the shop that most likely selling dim sum during the day and let the place out at night. It’s located at the same row as Damansara Utama Hokkien Mee and Ah Yap Sentul Hokkien Mee.
