Ah Hua Kway Teow, Johor BahruAh Hua Kway Teow, Johor Bahru (31 July, 2017)


Ah Hua Kway Teow (GPS: 1.45811, 103.76432; Simplified Chinese: 亚华粿條; Traditional Chinese: 亞華粿條) is a hawker stall at Restoran Sekee in Johor Bahru. It is famous for Teochew-style Kway Teow Soup, and there would usually be a long wait for the orders to be delivered. I had a chance to try it when I visited Johor Bahru with my friends Evonne, Bee Chan and Brian. We were on a food hunt, and Ah Hua Kway Teow was our first stop upon crossing the Causeway from Singapore.

When we arrived, I saw that many of the tables were already taken. Luckily we managed to secure a place to sit. Ah Hua Kway Teow was the only stall at Restoran Sekee, and that is obviously sufficient.

Evonne ordered the big bowl (which during our visit, cost RM18). The kway teow soup comes in two sizes, small or big. They are pretty much similar, except that for the big bowl, you have the option of having fresh oysters or extra ingredients. Evonne opted for oysters. We only ordered one bowl of the kway teow to be shared among the four of us, because we are saving our stomach for more eating that lay ahead.

If you are not fond of consuming liver or kidney, then this kway teow soup is not for you. Luckily, I have no problem eating liver or kidney, but they (particularly liver) are not among my favourite things.

When the kway teow soup was delivered to our table, I saw that it was indeed a very big bowl. It has a generous amount of liver, kidney, lean pork, minced meat, oysters, and garnished with coriander, some seaweed, fried shallot and lard. We asked for and were provided an extra saucer of lard, which was very tasty. The soup appeared frothy, probably due to the minced meat in there. Served with the koay teow soup is a chilli dipping sauce with some coriander. It reminds me of the dipping sauce for Gu Bak Koay Teow I get back home.

As we were sharing one bowl, I only managed to try a bit here and a bit there. That much is good, and the kway teow soup has the distinct aroma derived from cooking it over a charcoal fire. (I later went outside the stall to photograph the charcoal burner, with a heap of charcoal next to it).

How much do I like the Ah Hua Kway Teow? To be honest, I didn't ate enough of it to form a more thorough opinion. I believe I would like it very much if I had a chance to consume the whole bowl (but then, I would not have space to continue our food hunt that day!) I like the taste of the soup, the oysters, and the generous amount of lard provided, but I am not accustomed to taking liver or kidney with my kway teow soup. I would love to make a repeat visit, but I believe there are still too many stalls in JB waiting for me to try before I have a chance to circle back to this.

Patronising Ah Hua Kway Teow

Ah Hua Kway Teow operates out of Restoran Sekee, which is at 30, Jalan Segget. It opens daily (except Saturdays) from 8:00am to 2:30pm. As this stall is quite popular, be prepared for a long wait if you come during the lunch rush hour.
