Hokkien Mee or Wat Tan Hor?


Decisions. Decisions. I went back to Champ's a few more times and instead of trying something new, I stuck to the Chee Yok Fan. Like I said before, I am addicted.

Then I decided that I should try some other things on the menu. Noodles? Which one - Cantonese Fried Noodles (Wat Tan Hor) or Hokkien Mee?

I am more a fan of Wat Tan Hor (RM18.50), so that's what I had.


It was quite a generous serving.


Loads of goodies in there including liver. There were lots of ginger slices in there too which I enjoyed.


I was a very satisfied customer.

Then I returned for the Hokkien Mee (RM18.50).


This one was not so successful. Though it had quite a bit of ingredients, it did not have the typical Hokkien Mee taste. It was lacking oomph but the sambal was pretty good and saved the day.


I also found the black sauce a wee bit on the too sweet side for me. Though I finished my meal, I won't be back for the Hokkien Mee. Can't beat the one from Tiong Hokkien Mee@Damansara Uptown.

  1. wow! wat tan hor with liver - I like! so I will try this. the hokkien mee I suspect is not up to standard because the mee did not seem to melt into the gravy and is too sweet for you.

  2. If to choose, I go for the Cantonese noodle. Hokkien mee is messy to me. Need be careful not to let the black sauce stain your shirt. Lol.

  5. Too bad the Hokkien mee didn't taste as good as it looked. I do appreciate liver in Hokkien mee though it isn't as common in wat tan hor.

  7. I love the Hokkien Mee from both restaurants at Damansara Uptown. The Tiong is good for chicken wings.

  9. I like the look of the wat tan hor but I will do without the liver. I love Hokkien mee. Haven't have Hokkien mee for a long time especially with the crispy lard added to it.

  13. The appearance of the Hokkien Mee looked good though, but too bad the flavours not up to your expectation.
