Restoran Mee Bandung Muar a.k.a. D’Muar (CLOSED)

UPDATE AS AT JUNE 2014 - CLOSED
Unfortunately, they had to move due to the MRT construction work. We're trying to track where they have moved to.

Muar food has spread far and wide, including to Kajang. And not only are the Muar otak-otak and assam fish now famous and available nationwide, the Muar Mee Bandung seems to have gained popularity too, as evidenced by this stall located along Jalan Cheras near Kajang town. 
 The stall has been operating here for at least 10 years, and has been growing in popularity all the while. Not only are they popular for their Muar mee bandung but they have an extensive menu depending on the time of the day which includes:-

Breakfast : Mee rebus, nasi lemak, roti canai and lontong
Lunch : Rice with dishes, ikan bakar, mee bandung (only available lunch time onwards), chicken rice and Western food
Tea time : Cucur udang, kerang rebus, various kuih, mee bandung, rojak sotong etc
Dinner : Rice and dishes, tomyam, sup ekor, mee bandung, Western food etc


The mee rebus is tasty and thick.

The nasi lemak is decent enough but not exceptional. The sambal was on the sweetish side. 


The mee bandung is pretty good – slightly sweet (the good people of Bandung are apparently pretty liberal with sugar, very much like our Kelantanese). For RM4.00 you'll find both beef and chicken slices, prawn and squids and a soft-centre egg in the gravy. Topped with some crispy fried shallots for a nice aromatic finish.


The cucur udang here is very good. It would give Malek Tauhu of Semenyih a run for their money. The cucur are nice and fluffy and the chilli sauce is tangy, sweet and hot. Worth saving any excess in a bottle. RM1.00 will get you 3 pieces.

 The remnants of the ikan bakar after 2.00 p.m.
Ikan bakar – I haven't tried it so far but if you're there during lunch time, you can't help being enticed by the wafting aroma of fish slowly grilling on the griddle on a bed of banana leaves. The banana leaves impart a wonderful aroma to the fish. I must try it some day. 


Location : Stall along Jalan Cheras (opposite the KPJ Kajang Hospital)

Footnote from Jon : I packed some cucur udang back home and tested it using Malek's chili sauce (I'd saved some in a bottle from my last visit). The result - D'Muar wins hands down. But the cucur at Malek's is still better. D'Muar's cucur is smaller and oily - and no sign of the elusive udang too ?
