Food: Restoran Millenium Eighty Six @ Taman Paramount, PJ

When it comes to hawker fare, we'll be the last people to say we know where to find the best assam laksa / curry mee / chicken rice / char kuey teow. After all, we Malaysians have such diverse opinions on our local food, that just talking about it is a sure-fire way to liven up a dull conversation!

This post we're going wade into the debate with a take on my favourite Hokkien Mee joint (by 'my' I mean Adam. Not Wendy's favourite cause hers is a tie between Damansara Hokkien Mee and the one at Jalan 222. =P), Restoran Millenium Eighty Six in Taman Paramount!

I'm not too sure what this coffee shop has in the day, because I'm always there at night when the 'dai chow' (stir-fry) stall - Ah Wah Hokkien Fried Mee - opens! 

My regular order here is always a plate of Hokkien Mee, mixed with Meehoon because I always feel that the vermicelli absorbs the black sauce much better than noodles. There's plenty of sauce in Ah Wah's noodles, which is one of the reasons why I like it. Also plenty of pork lard, another plus point! Since the place fries numerous plates of thick toothsome noodles in one night, it goes without saying that the noodles boast plenty of 'wok hei'. 

Another favourite of mine - Ikan Bakar, or Grilled Fish! The stall at Millenium Eighty Six packs on a good amount of fiery chilli, but not too much to devoid it of all other taste. The smoky charred exterior is well-flavoured and the meat is also fresh and fleshy, which makes it worth the price. Expect to pay around RM 15 for a medium sized piece for 2-3 people. 

And what hawker centre would be complete without a satay stall right?! Satay may be common but not everyone gets it right; sometimes there's too much fat, or the meat can be tough and stringy. Here, there's usually a choice of chicken, beef and lamb, of which the lamb & chicken are quite good. We won't say it's the best satay in town, but it's definitely not the worst we've had. A few sticks adds good variety onto a simple dinner of fried noodles. =D

Sometimes, to mix it up, Wendy goes for a selection of items from the elderly lady manning the Lobak stall. Her favourites are the foo chok (fried beancurd sheets) that are sinfully crispy & thin, and the har peang (prawn fritters) that go very nicely with a dash of the tangy chilli sauce.

While everyone likes to throng the other more famous coffeeshop round the corner called O&S during the day, Millenium Eighty Six takes its turn to shine bright at night after things at O&S have wound down for the day. We also keep this place in mind for the simple weekday dinner; also for entertaining overseas relatives or friends who want a taste of local flavour! =D
