“Supper haunt”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

The Hokkien mee (fried thick noodles in black sauce or more affectionately known as "or-mee" or "fukien-chow") was a signature dish as it was ordered by most tables. Tasted pretty good altho' they were a tad lean with the ingredients for a portion of 2 @ RM14. Also had the wah-tan-hor (flat rice noods in egg drop sauce) which was a-ok. The Little Lim Penang Pancake saved the meal. Akin to the conventional ban-chang-kuih, the pancake was crispy at the sides and chewy in the centre. The filling is where I was blown away whereby the usual crushed peanuts & sugar mix was replaced by ham, cheese & meat floss. It looked like a kitchen experiment gone wrong but it was tasty nosh! At a pricey RM5 a piece, we ordered 3 with no regrets. Chicken satay at RM0.60 a stick, probably one of the cheapest in town, was meaty enough with no burnt bits. The peanut sauce, however, lacked punch (peanuts not fresh, lack of spices). Prices may not reflect its kopitiam status (came up to RM15 per head, plus non-alcoholic drinks). This being PJ, there are probably equally good if not better places nearby for supper socials.

Parking's aplenty at both sides of the main road or across at front of houses. If visiting at night, only cut through the mini playground if well lit. Else take the slightly longer but much safer route on the road.
