[Non-halal] he Wantan noodles at Koon Kee in Damansara Utama is a childhood favourite of Max in the 90s.
When he was younger, his late uncle (Ah Chik) would tapau these noodles from the shop to Max’s Ah Kong (grandpa) place in Damansara Kim.

The noodles would be packed into brown wrapping paper (the ones used for nasi lemak bungkus) together with the char siew, wantan, braised chicken feet and pickled chillies.
Somehow the noodles would taste better at home as the noodles would have absorbed all the flavours from the soy mix, char siew and pickled chillies.
Known for its pickled chillies
It’s probably been more than 15 years since Max ate here – and we are happy to report that it still tasted the same.
More importantly, they still use the same brown packaging paper to tapau! As we were running errands nearby, he decided to just dine-in.
The noodles here are made in-house and served al-dente with a good bite. The soy sauce mix was balanced – not overwhelming salty or sweet with a hint of chicken broth.
Chicken feet with mushrooms
Max ordered his noodles with chicken feet and mushrooms – as this was what he remembered enjoying.
The feet were soft and flavourful, having absorbed all the flavours from the spiced growth. His medium plate costs RM8. As we were dining in, the shop has non-stop takeaway orders mostly from the older folks.
If Max’s Ah Chik were still around, he’d probably be one of them.
P/S: At night, the kopitiam is known for their Teochew-style porridge.
