Uncle Lim's Penang Prawn Mee Stall @ Bandar Sri Damansara, Kuala Lumpur

If you are a Penang Prawn Mee (Har Mee) fan, then this is a place that you should not miss. Uncle Lim's Penang Prawn Mee is just a humble stall inside Restoran Woh that is located in Bandar Sri Damansara, Kuala Lumpur. Many food bloggers have also listed this place as the Top 5 Penang Prawn Mee outlets in the Klang Valley and I would definitely agree with all of them. I have been a customer for over five years now and have always returned with a happy tummy. To give directions to this place can be quite tricky as there are so many entrances to Bandar Sri Damansara. But to keep it simple, once you see Mc Donalds on your right, turn right at the next traffic light and then turn right again. The first shop at the corner is Restoran Woh. Just follow the above directions and you can't go wrong. Parking is a hassle here and one would need to be prepared to walk quite a bit. 

The Stall in Restoran Woh
Initially, Mr. Lim used to prepare the dishes but nowadays, he's hired some Indonesian workers and basically they are the one's who run the stall. Nevertheless, it is still him who prepares the broth and therefore you can be assured of the quality. Not a single day where the broth has slacked. Another thing, finding a table for lunch at Restoran Woh can be quite a challenge. There have been day's that I had to wait almost fifteen minutes before being able to seat myself. So please do be prepared for that as well. Alternatively, come for an early or late lunch. Still, do expect a crowd but it isn't that bad.  

Different Ad On's To Choose From
There is the standard dish which is priced at RM 5.50 and you have a variety of add on's to choose from. Right from adding extra egg to having Pork Ribs (Pai Kuat) or large shrimps, this would surely be a delight for all Har Mee lovers. Prices have been consistently going up over the years but still, it is truly worth it. Do expect to wait a while as she usually has quite a number of orders.

Penang Prawn Mee with Extra Egg @ RM 6.50
Since I came for a late lunch at 2.00 pm, I got my orders rather fast today. The above is the Har Mee version with extra egg and this was priced at RM 6.50 . It came with a mix of Mee / Mee Hoon just as I had requested, dried shrimps, some shrimps, pork slices, beansprouts, a whole egg in a super delicious broth. 

The Chili Paste is excellent too.
As always, it was a lovely bowl of Har Mee. The main thing for this dish is the broth and the preparation here is just amazingly good and guarantees to quench your thirst for a good bowl of Har Mee. And yes, the chili paste provided is a must have as it add's a mild spiciness to the overall flavours. I would surely give this a 9/10. What more should I say. Just head over and give this place a try and you'd certainly return happy and satisfied.
