My colleague said that there’s this very nice Mee Sua (a very thin Chinese noodles made from wheat flour originated from Fujian, China) place near Section 19 in SS 2. Seriously, I still can’t differentiate between SECTION/SEKSYEN and SS!!!
Anyway, we went our way out to Restoran Teow Chew Meng for a hearty lunch.
I don’t quite know how to describe the location or even the directions to Restoran Teow Chew Meng. All I can say is that the restaurant is located at the same row with Lobsterma.
Being in the area which I’m not very familiar with, let alone I am still confused with the terms Seksyen and SS and furthermore, they are used in Petaling Jaya, Subang and Shah Alam!

Normally, the colleagues and I would drive out for lunch further out of our usual perimeters on Fridays as Friday lunch break is longer. On Wednesday, we took the challenge and head out to SS2 despite knowing how bad the traffic is like in the area (also because we left office pretty early :P). Lucky for us, my colleague who used to stay in PJ area is a shortcut pro in SS2, so we managed to skipped the jam at traffic lights, had our lunch and got back to office ON TIME.
The restaurant is pretty crowded on a weekday lunch.
Fresh chilies and chili oil to spice up the dishes!
There’s only one menu and each items come with a picha for illustration purposes. The main dishes are priced by portion (eg: RM10 per pax=person). As this is my first time here, I wanted to try everything on the menu! Everything looks so yummy! We ended up ordering Sharks Fin Mee Sua Tow for three, Mixed Seafood Tom Yum Lai Fun for one and Fried Oyster Mee for one to share among 5 of us.
The signature dish here is the Sharks Fin Mee Sua Tow @ RM12 per pax. We ordered portion for 3 pax and we got a huge bowl of mee sua! When this was served, we looked at each other and laughed. Wondering if we could finish the other 2 dishes we ordered earlier.
The mee sua consists of prawns, fish maw, sea asparagus, fresh fish fillet, crab stick and egg, topped with sharks fin and garnished with fried garlic and spring onions. The mee sua soup is rather thick and it really does taste like sharks fin soup, furthermore, it is eaten the same way with black vinegar. Super love this! Such a yummy hot bowl of savoury and sourish bowl of thick seafood mee sua
Before anyone starts preaching me about eating sharks fin and etc, I don’t think the shark’s fin they use here is real. Oherwise this bowl of mee sua would cost us a fortune! Just look at the amount of shark’s fin they gave us! I assumed they are using replica of shark’s fin. Peace!
The Fried Oyster Mee is another signature dish here. The portion is pretty huge for one person!
Fried yellow noodles served in thick gravy with a generous amount of oysters and garnished with fried garlic, spring onions and pepper.
The gravy is not too thick unlike the mee sua and I easily slurp off a small bowl of this slippery yellow noodles and a few yummy oysters! Oh, the chili oil paste goes complemented this very well.
We have a few Thai food lovers here and we couldn’t resist from not ordering the Tom Yum noodles. So, we had the Mixed Seafood Tom Yum with noodle choice of Lai Fun (thick rice noodles aka assam laksa noodles).
Sorry no picha of the noodles as this was hurriedly licked off the bowl!
The Tom Yum soup based has an authentic Thai flavours and with the Lai Fun in it, it was like a deconstructed version of assam laksa (just saying). They are very generous with their seafood, lots of large prawns, fresh fish fillet and squids. Garnished with lemon grass, mint and lime leaves.
Saw this poster at the entrance. They do delivery and this is what we’re excited about because in the future, whenever we crave for a nice hot bowl of their goodness, we can call for delivery
