Originally, the mee jawa had beef as an ingredient but many locals – especially the Chinese – do not eat beef due to their religious beliefs. Mee Jawa is a variation of the Indian Mee Rebus, but there are other who claim that it is Indonesian in origin.

Located @ Jalan Chowrasta.

This is the place for Jawa Mee or Java Mee. Unlike the starchy version that you generally find in Kuala Lumpur, the one here is surprisingly light.

Sugarcane @ RM1.00 & Chrysanthemum Tea @ RM1.10.

Jawa Mee @ RM2.50 wet version. The jawa mee gravy are made from chicken stock, Chili sauce and tomato paste are combined to make the gravy; when it come to boil, the noodles are added. The result is a plate of noodles with slightly sweet, sour and hot gravy that perks up your appetite.

Jawa Mee @ RM2.50. This is dry version. The dry version is equally good. Cooked without the chicken stock, it’s moist, with more distinct tangibles from the tomato paste and better then wet version.

Overall I will vote:
7/10 for the service. Friendly & efficient.
8/10 for the food quality and quantity of the food excellent. Price reasonable.
6/10 for the environment. Just push-cart stall.
