Tawakal Hokkien Mee @ Aik Yuen Kopitiam

It was a Saturday evening and time for a dinner, there was no food @ home and there were only 3 of us at home. I decided to take the 2 young ones to Jalan Pahang (near Tawakal Hospital) for some fried noodles.

The boys find the place interesting with lot of customers and sitting at the road sides. A typical Malaysian street food scene.
We anticipated that our Hokkien mee would come out late and we "taupau" / pack a Mee Goreng fried by an Indian lady at a nearby stall. We reckoned it has to be good cos it's not being fried by any foreigner like a Myanmar but by an Indian lady. Truly the mee goreng was lovely. We were satisfied with her fried noodle.
Business has been brisk here but the entire place looks disarrayed, dish washing just next to you at the corridor of the shop house and the drinks are prepared at the corridor. Everything looks temporary. I was initially very pleased with the service we had our fish cake reasonably fast and followed by with our Cantonese fried noodle.
Delicious fried (saito) fish cake with golden skin and bouncy bites.
Cantonese Fried Noodle was also yummy.
The only thing you dislike about place is the cleanliness, waiting attitude and cook smoking while at the woks. I would suggest that you just close one eye and enjoy the food like we do.
The Hokkien mee was undeniably awesome and everyone of us like the taste of the Hokkien Mee even though the fried noodle came pretty late.
