Restoran Jie Mee (Restoran Seng Lee Wantan Mee) @ Sri Hartamas KL

When Restoran Seng Lee at Jalan Batai, Damansara Heights announced on the closed down in December 2013, many loyal customers started to track down the whereabouts of the three favourite food stalls in Seng Lee Kopitiam- Wantan mee, char koay teow and pork noodles. We “Google” for some info on these three stalls current location, and plan to check them out again one by one, started with Restoran Seng Lee Wantan Mee, which is now relocated to Desa Sri Hartamas as Jie Mee Kopitiam 姐妹茶餐室 (Few shops away from Podgy & The Banker, beside MyElephant Thai Restaurant, La Juiceria cold pressed juice).

Business was slow during our visit to Jie Mee Restaurant, even though it was peak hour for breakfast. Jie Mee Restoran churns out both dry wantan mee (simplest toss of “gon lou”, or dressed in curry chicken) and wantan mee in soup (clear broth, curry laksa) and also pork noodles.

Char Siew Wantan Mee (Small- RM6, Medium- RM6.50, Large-RM7.00)
Sadly to say, both our Char Siew Wantan Mee and Curry Wantan Mee came to a disappointment. The noodles itself was fine, springy and chewy, but the sauce just somehow lacking in flavours, didn’t live up to our expectation – lack of sweetness, savouriness, oiliness and aroma of dark sauce that a proper wantan mee has to contribute. Besides, Jie Mee wantan mee should be more generous with the sauce, as the noodles seemed dry once reaching our table, hence we failed to get every strand of noodle well tossed with the sauce.

Didn’t really bother much about the char siew, as they were tough and lean. Customers can add on chicken feet (RM1.50 per piece), Wanton (RM0.60 per piece), Shui Gao (RM1.20 per piece) and fishball/ fuzhok (RM0.50 per piece) for a more plentiful plate of wantan mee.

Curry Laksa Wantan Mee (Small-RM7.00, Large –RM8.00)


Since reviews mentioned that Restoran Jie Mee curry laksa is much raved about, best served with wantan noodles. So we tried out an order of it too. Broth was pale in colour and spiciness, richly loaded with santan, topped with beancurd, long beans, cockles, shredded chicken and finished with a spoonful of chilli paste that didn’t help much in enhancing the spiciness.

We weren’t sure about the quality of this sisters’ wantan mee back in Seng Lee Restoran. However, at their current location of Jie Mee Restaurant, we personally feel their wantan mee is just mediocre, with rooms for improvement. Not in the plan to revisit.
