In the vibrant “Pangkalama” area of Melaka, along Jalan Tun Sri Lanang, lies a local culinary gem: the Low Roof Hee Kiaw Mee Stall, also known as 宝宝酿豆腐 (Poh Poh Yong Tau Foo). This stall, with its rich history and unique flavors, has been a staple in the Melakan food scene for decades.
What Makes Low Roof Hee Kiaw Mee Special?
The star of the stall is Hee Kiaw Mee, a Melaka-specialty noodle dish featuring fish paste and fish balls. Customers can choose from noodles, kuey teow, or beehoon, or mix them together. The Hee Kiaw is typically served dry, accompanied by a small bowl of soup although a purely soup option is available as well. To enhance the flavors, adding “Chili Boh” – a favorite local chili sauce – is highly recommended.
Apart from the signature Hee Kiaw Mee, the stall also offers a variety of Yong Tau Foo options. These include tofu, beancurd skin, vegetables stuffed with fish, and other small dishes like crab stick, cheese tofu, and dumplings, all served in a savory soup. Additionally, the stall sells Wan Tan Mee and Curry noodles, catering to a range of taste preferences.
Arrival: Open daily from 5.30pm to 11.30pm (closed on Monday and Tuesday), it’s best to arrive earlier as ingredients might run out towards closing hours. The stall is particularly crowded during dinner time and on weekends.
Ordering: On arrival, head to the counter to place your food order, then find a table to sit down. Drink orders will be taken at the table, with options including canned drinks and freshly blended fruit juice (specify if you do not want sugar added).
Seating: The stall doesn’t have formal parking, so if you’re driving, park at your own risk or find a parking lot nearby and walk over.
A visit to the Low Roof Hee Kiaw Mee Stall offers more than just a meal; it’s an immersion into the heart of Melaka’s culinary tradition. The bustling atmosphere, the rich flavors of Hee Kiaw Mee, and the array of Yong Tau Foo and noodle dishes make this stall a must-visit for anyone seeking to experience the authentic taste of Melaka.
