Wooi Mei

Families & friends flock to this neighborhood Chinese eatery for no-nonsense nosh.

Sizzling-hot, super-silky bean curd, soaked in deliciously savory gravy.

Fat, pleasantly chewy snails in a sinfully buttery sauce.

Honey-cooked chicken, a sweeter substitute for fried, roasted or steamed fowl.

Obligatory veggies. Take 'em or leave 'em.

Complimentary black-herbal jelly in ice. Or something like that.

Wooi Mei Seafood Restaurant,
Jalan 29, Section 17, Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

  3. The beancurd dish would be my favorite. Unfortunately, I'm allergic to certain soy products. :(

    1. Missyblurkit; heheh, but since it's sorta open-air, the sound of the wailing kids will just drift away into nothingness (hopefully) :D

  12. True Story, once when we were dining here, they had to borrow rice from their neighbour across the road as they had run out of rice :)

    Having said that, you should really give their neighbour a try (if you haven't already) =)
