Ever tried misua? This thin, rice vermicelli dish is popular among Chinese communities all over the world. They have a silky smooth texture which is perfect for soups and broths.
One great place to find seafood misua is at Teow Chew Meng in SS14, Petaling Jaya. There’s nothing delicate about the dish, as it comes served piping hot in a giant, stainless steel pot – hearty comfort food at its best.
During our visit, the Mee Sua Tow was served chock full of ingredients like mushrooms, fish slices, squid, crab meat sticks and scallops, and was topped with oil-fried crunchy garlic for an aromatic flavour. Nothing beats a soupy bowl of misua in cold weather. I like to eat mine with a dash of vinegar for that appetizing, sour kick. 🙂 The broth was savoury, with a starchy texture similar to egg drop/sharks fin soup. At RM13 per pax, you can’t get more value for money than this.
The stir-fried veggies were crunchy, but overly sweet. Like they added sugar or something.
3-Taste Oyster (RM18) had 10 pieces of largish oysters swimming in a sweet and sour chilli sauce. The sauce would be great with something like rice. My only complaint is that the portion is small, but I guess oysters are expensive these days.
Would I recommend this place? Defo. And I’d come back again if I’m ever in the neighbourhood.
They are also famous for their Kerabu (mixed salad), fried seafood rolls and porridge, so many I’ll try that next time.
