Sentul Ah Yap Hokkien Mee & Seafood (洗都阿叶福建面海鲜饭店)

Eventually it finished renovation and open about 1 month ago I guess.
Sentul Ah Yap Hokkien Mee & Seafood, famous with their charcoal Hokkien Mee located at Jalan Sentul, Kuala Lumpur since 1960. 

We used to go there often before the whole place renovated, mostly for their Hokkien Mee and other stall's Curry Mee.
The place was so dirty and you could see rats sometimes but after renovation it is completely different.
A nice place to hang out with friends too because they serve drinks at as low as price in Mamak stall.
Some more they open from 5pm till 1am ! 

Last time we used to see the Lady Boss in the stall.
I don't know how old is she but around 60-70s? 
She is just a typical Chinese old lady, but then if you see her cooking like a chef master, you would think differently.
I feel really honored just to eat the Hokkien Mee she cooks.
I didn't know they were famous with Hokkien Mee because that location was not proper at all and they have small stall for doing "Siew Chao" (小炒).
Until one day there was a new TV series on NTV 7 called 《美食厨师男》 at 10pm to 11pm from Monday to Thursday.

I and my partner normally watch series from 10pm to 11pm and we thought it was a stupid show because of the poor acting. But still we watch.
The TV series was about story of a family struggled to live up their famous Hokkien Mee restaurant and bla bla bla. So, from there, we saw "洗都", translation of "Sentul" + Hokkien Mee.
 Then we realised it could be the one we went before.
It was true. 
The name of restaurant and brand in the TV series are theirs.
So lucky us!
We heard also they have other branches which located in Dataran Sunway Kota Damansara, Damansara Utama and SunwayMas.
The lady boss still remain in the 'headquarter' branch in Sentul here, as a chef and boss.
Her two sons are handling the other 3 branches I guess.

Last night, thanks to Mr.Koo, our friend and neighbour, treated us a dinner meal in this newly open Sentul Ah Yap Charcoal Hokkien Mee Restaurant (this name taken from the Menu).
We love room with air-conditioner and it wont be so noisy sitting outdoor near the road with all cars passing by.
First to order, of course famously Hokkien Mee.
Next Special Fried Bean Curd and Fried "Pak Ko" with a hot pot of Chinese tea. 
It was all good (see the photos yourself pls)

Special Fried Bean Curd (招牌豆腐) - RM 13.00

Hokkien Mee (福建面) - RM 11 (M)
Can you see a lot of pork fat on top of it ? 
Yummy but don't eat so much...its FAT. Hehe

Fried "Pak Ko" (炒白猓) - RM 8.00 (S)

Nick says: Overall, all good! Hehehe...

The restaurant got 3 big Plasma TVs (2 outdoor, 1 indoor) playing the TV series - 《美食厨师男》 
There were a lot of customers, from regular ones to new customers.
To be honest, I'm so happy for them! 
Seeing it growing from a dirty lousy chinese-style's restaurant to whole new look of proper restaurant.
It just overwhelming joy!

  1. My problem is when it comes time to leave a tip. Recently, my wife and I had a glorious dining experience up the central coast of California. The food and atmosphere were excellent the service was decent.
