Penang Cuisine – Mee Jawa, Food Republic @ Pavilion KL

Mee Jawa stall in Pavilion’s Food Republic is often neglected by customers as it is located far at the back behind John King and besides Pan Mee stall.

Mee Jawa's Mee Jawa
Mee Jawa’s Mee Jawa

Mee Jawa as its name suggested, is famous with its Javanese noodles, or Mee Jawa in Bahasa Malaysia. The plate of Mee Jawa is huge as you can see from the picture comparative with the sppon and chopstick. Its taste is somehow rather mediocre and besides its humongous plate, there’s nothing really to shout about. Still, it’s better than Mee Jawa at Oldtown.

Mee Jawa's Curry Laksa
Mee Jawa’s Curry Laksa

Curry Laksa, on the other hand, is pleasant to eat, although I have to say its incredible hard to find one that’s as good as you can get from Penang.

Maybe Mee Jawa should be neglected, not just because of its location but of its food.

  • Mee Jawa – RM 8.50

Pan Mee's Pan Mee Dry
Pan Mee’s Pan Mee Dry

Pan Mee Dry is true to its name — dry. The dryness of Pan Mee Dry is not too bad if you mix it with the soup that comes along with it. The overabundant of anchovies and small pieces of chicken bits overcome the dryness of the food.

Pan Mee's Assam Laksa Penang

The Assam Laksa is delicious though it lacks the sourness most Assam Laksa has. Like the Pan Mee Dry, the fish meat is abundant and for the price of RM 6.90, it’s quite worth it.
