Kedai Kopi Dan Makanan Hong Lai @ Genting Kelang, Setapak, Kuala Lumpur

If you are craving for a good Kuala Lumpur fried Hokkien Mee and do not mind going to Setapak for one. Then I would recommend you this coffee shop.

 Kedai Kopi Dan Makanan Hong Lai is housed along the main road of Genting Kelang, Setapak and it’s near to the road junction to Air Panas.

Just look at the fierce flame from the burning charcoal and these young assistants will soon take over the business and will continue to provide us the traditional way of Kuala Lumpur signature fried noodles.

The Master Cook of Hong Lai who having been pampering his patrons with good charcoal fried noodles. And his patrons have never failed to return for more of his delicious fried noodles.

It was surely a long wait for his favourite moonlight “kuay teow”. And the good news was he was satisfied with the taste of his noodle and he do not mind the wait.

This is the moonlight fried koay teow “Yip Kong Hor” and is Zu Yi’s favourite noodle. He has been pestering me to bring him here at Hong Lai for this dish. And at last he got it.

The first time I ate this kind of noodle was in 1976 and it was a shock to me seeing the fat & oily yellow noodles in dark soy sauce. Over the years I have got used to it and have cultivated a love for it.  Hong Lai’s fried Hokkien Mee is magnificent and I love it very much.

“Kung Fu” Fried Koay Teow or aka Cantonese Fried Noodle is also as delicious.

We went for more noodles and ordered another dish of “Lor Mee”. We just wanted to try more and it was great especially eaten with a bit of Chinese vinegar.

There is only one thing better than shopping in Hong Kong, and that's eating. From small noodle joints to upscale French restaurant, you will locate all sorts of restaurant, eating hall and snack stall on earth in Hong Kong. Here I found small amount of Hong-Kong-styled snacks online ( This is definitely a good choice before I have $ for another trip.
