A little back story. Both K and I used to be huge fans of mee tarik. How huge? At any given opportunity, we pretty much tried to go to every possible Chinese Muslim restaurant that sells it!
How about now? Well, K’s taste buds have somehow rather adapted to our local fare, whereas I have moved on to other types of Chinese Muslim food.
Anyway, this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go ahead and enjoy your delicious bowl of mee tarik. For those who love it, you would probably want to make it your mission to try all the different types of mee tarik imaginable!
And here’s where we make it super duper easy for you. Feast your eyes on the ultimate list for mee tarik restaurants in Malaysia! We’re not sure whether such a list exists, but this is our version of it.
Restaurants are listed in alphabetical order. Click on the restaurant name to go to their website or click on our article to read about our mee tarik adventures.
About two weeks ago, my sister brought my dad to this new Chinese Muslim restaurant in KL – Hezhou Restaurant.
Dad ordered Ba Bao Cha (八宝茶) and my sister ordered Chrysanthemum tea.
Now Ba Bao Cha can be loosely translated as “8 Treasures Tea”. It basically means the tea has 8 types of ingredients. There may be slight variations in terms of the ingredients used in other restaurants, but common ingredients include tea leaves, red dates, goji berries, longan, and rock sugar.
As for my sister’s Chrysanthemum tea, hers was infused with goji berries. A nice touch for that slight natural sweetness.
Do you know the feeling of traveling to another country, only to have this sudden craving to eat something familiar? Something that tastes like the food from your hometown?
Well, we were on our way to Seremban with my in-laws when we decided to stop by China Muslim Restoran in Seri Kembangan for dinner. Took us a while to find the exact location because we weren’t familiar with the place.
We entered the restaurant, found a nice place to sit, and within minutes the waitress came to take our order. My in-laws were ecstatic to see the menu. The restaurant had so many dishes to choose from! We ended up ordering 5 types of noodles dishes for us to share among ourselves.
Perhaps it’s just me, but I felt the portion was huge! My in-laws and K pretty much cleared their plates. Me, on the other hand, had leftovers.
Stuffed and satisfied, we left the restaurant and continued our journey to Seremban.
The first time I ate at Mee Tarik Warisan Asli was more than 5 years ago at their Medan Niaga Tasik Damai, Sungai Besi outlet. The menu was pretty simple then. I used to go there two to three times a week because it was within walking distance from my office, plus the taste of the mee tarik reminded me of my trip to China.
Ever since then, I’ve eaten at several of their other outlets. Needless to say, I’ve also seen the changes in their menu and restaurant concept. Maybe it’s just me, but I prefer their 5 years ago menu at Medan Niaga Tasik Damai, Sungai Besi outlet. And the price too.Read More »
