I've been hankering for authentic KL hokkein mee since that one fateful night in subang jaya when I was introduced to it. This is a pretty good rendition with plenty of wok hei, thick sticky black sauce that's not too sweet, lotsa pork lard and noodles fried just right (eh, guess al dente's not quite the right word). The other supposedly must-try dish, sang har meen, was just ok. 3.5 nombles.

Rather different from what I expected. Much lighter in taste (less oily, less black sauce) than the Singapore versions, but with lotsa wok hei and super fat prawns. 4 nombles.

Post-dinner dessert at Liang Seah. Textbook perfect 杨枝甘露 and nice cooling ice cream bulur hitam. 3.5 nombles.

The supposedly best laksa in Penang. Less sour and spicy than the versions in Singapore, with a wonderfully full-bodied broth and lotsa crunchy veges. Well worth the trek outta (george)town. 4 nombles.
