Mee Jawa Restaurant at Casa Tropicana, being a 5 minute drive from our office, is fast becoming our favourite place for lunch!

Me and my colleagues love this place for the Mee Jawa! It has a light taste, with just enough oomph! to fill you up but not leave you feeling too sleepy after your meal. This is really important especially if you still have a lot of things to do, after lunch.
Just a word on the Mee Jawa, it is really not that spicy for those who like a lot of heat in their noodles.

The Assam Laksa. This was really rather poorly done. Weak with hardly any fish taste. The soup tasted like dish-water. Do not order this if you eat here!

The fruit rojak. Delicious! Lots of apple,pineapple, sour mango, sotong and crispy bits (keropok and peanuts) to make it a refreshing lunchtime snack. If you want an ultra-light lunch, this is it. Still, there is enough sugar in that sauce to give you a buzz for sure!

The fried chicken here is excellent. Crispy bite sizes with a zesty sauce.
If you are going out for after work drinks, this goes great with beer!

The Prawn Mee. Not ‘dirty’ enough for me, but still pretty decent, if you get what I mean. (I like my prawn mee, murky, pungent and swimming in gooey prawn-matter..;P)
All in all, a good place for a fast lunch on a workday.
Check it out, if you are in the area;)

  4. 550ml jar of faith says:

    Haha, got your point about the prawn mee not being dirty enough. What’s prawn mee without the tasty flotsam – icky insides and all!

  5. boo_licious says:

    The owner of this place also runs the Mee Jawa stall at Pavilion’s food court. Not been here before but I like the Mee Jawa they served at Pavilion. My ultimate fav one is still at Kepong – next to the stinky chicken stall.

    if the dish washing assam laksa spoilt everything , then you should drag the whole place down by 3.3 points , to overall 4.9
