Chuan Kee Original Ulu Yam Lor Mee

Whenever I stop over at Ulu Yam for food, Ulu Yam Lor Mee is something that I almost always order. The part of Ulu Yam that most non locals (including me) are familiar with is Ulu Yam Baru. I had noticed that there was a Ulu Yam Lama but never really knew where it was until a few days ago!

My friend told me that this restaurant was the first and original lor mee in Ulu Yam.

Part I - a simple lunch at Chuan Kee, Ulu Yam Lama.

A plate of Hokkien Noodle for two. Only RM9.00.

The noodle was home made with minimal lye water. The owner told us that it will last no more than 3 days compared to those commercially type that will last up to one week.

Nice thick gravy. It was very nice.

Part II - dinner at the same restaurant the following day.

The original Ulu Yam Lor Mee. My friend told me that this was the first lor mee restaurant in Ulu Yam. The same type of home made noodle was used for this lor mee.

Vinegar pre-added to the bowl of noodle. You can add more to your own bowl to your liking. I did.

They called this lor bak (braised pork). Absolutely too fat for our taste. The owner explained that the only pork supplier in town is only willing to supply inferior cut like this to the restaurant.

Saito fish cake(西刀鱼饼). Very nice!
