Restoran He Pin, Pan Mee @ Old Town PJ

He Pin Coffee shop is tucked way in Old Town PJ and this old coffee shop bungalow is famous for the Pan Mee and Economy Rice. This place is normally packed to the rafters during lunch hour as well as the weekends.. and you get the Malay rice, Chinese Economy rice , Indian mee rebus stalls, all under one roof. Extremely Malaysian International.

The lady boss makes the Pan Mee noodles at a 100 miles an hour..

Squeeze, peel, pull and chuck into hot water.

..and repeat!


The bowl of Pan Mee for RM4 is ridiculously delicious. The pork soups stock is thick and sweet, the anchovies fried to perfection, the floating mince pork and mushrooms.. fresh as hell. The chili is astronomically spicy. It had me in tears because I chucked 2 saucers of it into my soup, and then ate up Cumi’s share by dipping my anchovies in it as well! Talk about masochistic.

The texture of the Pan Mee.. slightly slimy, chewy and al dente. Delicious!

The way to this place.. He Pin coffee shop is located near Jalan 51/200.
To find it, take Jalan Penchala in Petaling Jaya and travel right to the end of the road.

    i didn't know pan mee still has to be whipped into shape at the outlet. always thought it's ready-made like other noodles! gosh, that's hard work

  • boo_licious says:

    Ah, mee hoon kueh done ala minute. Sounds very good, as these hand pulled ones are not easy to come by. Prawn mee is also nearby in the shack across the road.

    Ahh…agreed that it's hard to get pulled versions these days. Especially good ones. So hard to come by. One must lap up the bowl with tons of crispy anchovies and chili!
