Hawker Food at Restaurant Hup Soon, SS3 – Kelana Jaya

For me, no matter how fancy I go, how fusion, how out-of-the-ordinary cuisine can pique my interest, I can’t do without my hawker food. While weekend mornings are for American style brekkies, most mornings it’s Nasi Lemak or a sandwich.

For lunch, economy rice is mandatory. Malay, Indian, Chinese, it’s ok. We are 1Malaysia aren’t we? 😛

There are loads of coffee shops in PJ area but I was introduced to this one rather recently by the PJ boy – UnkaLeong.

Restaurant Hup Soon
Jalan SS3/39
Kelana Jaya, 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

Not easy to find for some, for it is out of the usual PJ Section 17, Taman Megah, SS2 areas. But if you do take the trouble, you will duly rewarded with fresh, FISHY Yong Tau Foo worthy of rivalry to the overrated Ampang ones.

I need my RICE, and I zoomed in on this stall, where the queue was plausible long.

My meal above at RM6.00, with 3 pieces of tender, spiced coated chicken, some squid rings and loads of vegetables was most satisfying! The curries and dhall is just as good as most banana leaf outlets too.

UnkaLeong needed his Char Kuey Teow fix, and I tried to dissuade him at first when I saw that the stall has a paper pasted saying “No Pork“. I mean; heck, what is Char Kuey Teow without lard?

But I ended up literally having to eat my words/kuey teow, for though it is not as good as Robert’s in Say Huat, Section 17 , this was nonetheless an edible alternative.

At night, the Chinese style WESTERN FOOD (think chicken chop, fish and chips, lamb chops with fries & a few pieces of fresh greens) is pretty decent as well.
Pictured here is the lamb chop. (Yeah, you can’t see the meat underneath all that sauce but trust me, it was 2 BIG slabs!)

Other than the above, the Fried Rice stall is popular. Like any other chinese coffee shops, there is a chicken rice stall and some noodles stalls here. A good choice for a cheap satisfying lunch!

Mornings: Yong Tau Foo
Noodles (curry mee, char kuey teow, prawn mee, chee cheong fun)
Nights: Western Food

    wah, this would indeed be hard to find, cos it looks like so many coffee shops across the country! but guess what … i finally have gps, so i can actually look for hard-to-find places like this! 😀
    i haven’t tried the ampang ytf, so i dunno if they’re overrated, heheh…

    1. rebeccasaw

      U havent tried Ampang YTF? Ahh..if only they open late at night hor? 🙂

  2. I just had really lousy char kway teow the other day in Kuchai Lama simply cos “I just had to have char kway teow” – so your concern was not unfounded.

    However, Unkaleong certainly fared better than me – maybe having a food blogger dining with him helps? 😀

    1. rebeccasaw

      Haha. He went ahead to order it anyways!
      But one thing is, he knows most of the good eats around PJ!

    For the nasi campur, it’s cheap considering the amount & items you took.

  4. TummyRumble

    I’ve eaten here a couple of times.. their wan ton mee is not bad as well.. As for dai chow, there is another place on the row of shoplots behind it, right at the opposite end.. the wa tan hor is not bad.. I used to bring my catch there from fishing to be cooked.. 🙂

    1. rebeccasaw

      oooOoo!! GREATTT!! I think i ll be here every weekend frm now! :mrgreen:

    Ampang’s YTF never did it for me. But I only tried Ampang Homeland’s, and many have raved about Foong Foong’s before.

    1. rebeccasaw

      Ok, one day we go to the Puchong one whc I heard it’s a lot better than the ampang one!

  6. boo_licious

    We love this coffee shop since we usually drop by SS3 every wkend. Everyone gravitates here for YTF in the daytime and the chicken chop at night.

    1. rebeccasaw

      Yes! Wonder whta took UnkaLeong so long to get me there!

  7. Leo

    yeah… Jenn & I love having cheap western food here at night, but that was in the past before Sher Ryn came into our lives 🙂

    1. rebeccasaw

      Aww..ok . All the sacrifice for the little one eh?
      No worries, so when are we meeting up for makan??

  8. iamthewitch

    OK I love yong tau foo.. It’s too far from my workplace aih… Maybe I should drop by during the weekends..

  9. sophia

    Wow, becky, you eat out most of the time, right? Lucky! I wish I can do that too, but I would become bankrupt…food is so expensive here! And you wonder why Americans are so much fatter?! It’s a paradox!

    I used to adore the western foods…Always got the fish…hee hee.

  10. softbunny

    aiyo…Hup Soon is just a few roads from my hse…u were so near me…yet so far…
