Ask any PJ folks where to get the best Hokkien Mee…more, their reply would unanimously be AHWA at Jalan 222. Ahwa Restaurant is a corner "Dai Chao" shop located along Jalan 222 that has been around for decades. Beside Hokkien mee, there's other hawkers stores such as pan cakes, loh bak, stewed duck, grilled seafood ,popiah and tauhu bakar that are reputably decent too. This eatery would usually get really crowded as the clock struck 7. Luckily, my family is a regular here. We made a reservation before hand so that we need not to wait for a seat. It is quite a common sight to see tables and chair hogging the road and parkings to cater the ever-increasing late night patrons.
Chef at work. Time to time, you will catch a glimpse of Ahwa (founder of Ahwa Hokkien Mee, obviously) down at work in the kitchen. They still use charcoal to cook their noodles, giving their noodle "wok hei".
The heavy yet aromatic pork lard aroma lingers around the eatery, testing our patience before our noodles are delivered to us!
